“Fantastic personality, amazing editing and photography skills”

Lauren was an absolute delight to work with since the very beginning. She was the first, and only photographer we met with. She’s no nonsense, straight to the point and absolutely hilarious. She was more than accommodating when we asked for in home engagements, stayed in contact with us during the long gap between engagement and the ceremony, and offered support and creative touches the day of. I would absolutely recommended lauren to everyone I know looking for a photographer, wedding or otherwise.

“Amazing Photographer Personally & Professionally”

I happened to meet Lauren through my field of work, as a wedding coordinator at Huber's Orchard & Winery in Starlight, IN. After working alongside her professionally and seeing her finished product of brides I had personally worked with also, I knew she had a knack for catching all the best shots. We hired Lauren to do our wedding and reception photography and could not have been happier with the outcome! I am so glad that I can continue my relationship with Lauren through our shared interests. Thank you Lauren!!!

"Stunning Beach Wedding Photos!"

We can't thank Lauren enough for the beautiful job she did while shooting our wedding down in Pompano Beach. She had the most amazing ideas on the beach, working with the wind and sunset. She has an incredibly artistic eye and took so many photos to ensure she would capture the best shots. Every time I looked over, she was either shooting or planning the next shot-she just doesn't stop! She was able to wrangle up groups (and we had some big ones!) with ease and knew exactly how to position everyone. I highly recommend Lauren to anyone who is getting married and/or wants gorgeous photos either here or at a travel destination. She knows her stuff and is an absolute pleasure to work with.

Lauren did an amazing job capturing our special day! I couldn't be more happy with how our pictures turned out. She and her partner were very professional, easy to work with and knew exactly how to capture the special moments. I really liked the variety of pictures along with the different angles. It gave us a ton of options to choose from! She was also really passionate about what we wanted and we appreciated that so much! I would highly recommend her! We were blown away with our pictures!

Lauren was amazing to work with! She takes time to get to know you as a couple and provides great direction when needed. She and her assistant really go with the flow and ask for your feedback along the way. We will absolutely book her in the future!

"Our Perfect Day"

We are so thankful Lauren & her assistant were able to capture our wedding as well as our engagement pictures! Leading up to the wedding Lauren was always a call/email away to answer any & all questions I had! Lauren found the perfect place to take our engagement pictures (which we fell in love with) & she also traveled over two hours to capture our wedding day! Our pictures are amazing and everything we imagined they would be and more! I couldn't be more thankful for everything that Lauren helped out with throughout the entire process! We received our wedding pictures within a month with a very thoughtful touch included! You will not regret choosing Photography & Design by Lauren!

Lauren did an AMAZING job capturing not only our wedding day but also our engagement pictures. She answered all emails within 24 hours. Very professional and awesome at what she does. I first met Lauren from another wedding I was in last year and I fell in love with her work. Our engagement pictures and pictures from the wedding day turned out perfect! Lauren had a second photographer with her the day of the wedding and that helped capture EVERY moment of our big day. I can't say enough how thankful I am that Lauren captured our wedding day! She sent a USB within 4 weeks of our wedding day full of a ton of pictures.

"September wedding!"

Cannot say enough about how great Lauren is! She captured our wedding day perfectly! I had searched for photographers forever for our September wedding when I came across Lauren and I am so happy I found her! In the midst of our chaotic wedding day, (as I am not the most organized person) she helped to pull everything together and make sure our pictures were absolutely perfect! She was so helpful, prompt, and understanding throughout the whole wedding planning process and on our wedding day. Everyone has commented on how awesome our pictures are! Thank you Lauren!!!

Lauren is an amazing photographer. Her personality is beautiful. She most definitely VERY fun to work with! We never knew having an engagement photo shoot could be so much fun! Lol. Seriously one of the sweetest people I've ever met. I'll continue to go back to her for any photos that i'll need. I recommend her to everyone! Lauren thank you for everything!

"Engagement Photos"

Lauren's photography style and skill is astonishing. She took our engagement photos and I could not be happier with the entire experience. She made everything work when we had to push the session back and was even at the venue early to look for the best places to shoot. We are so happy with the photos and have gotten so many compliments from family and friends. Lauren is great to work with and I can't wait to have her taking photos on our wedding day.

"Stunning Wedding Pictures"

 We are so thankful that Lauren was able to be our wedding photographer! She was extremely helpful before the wedding and gave us some great advice regarding certain shots and how to set up our timeline. During the wedding she was professional and made sure all my requested pictures were shot first. She got some beautiful shots of small details at our ceremony and reception. She made sure to capture every important moment for us. We just received our photos and an adorable locket she had made. I could not be happier with everything. Our photos are truly stunning and are a piece of art. I can't wait to put then up in our home and to get our photo album finished! I cannot say enough good things about Lauren as a photographer. You truly will be making one of the best investments in your wedding if you use Photography & Design by Lauren.

Adrienne Bushau-Sprinkle


 Wow! I can not say enough about Lauren. She and Morgan photographed my wedding at Bernheim forest and did a fabulous job. The pictures were beautiful but it was their personality and professionalism that blew me away more. They expertly handled our inexperience with photographs and were so laid back with us, making it very comfortable. So many thank you's to Lauren for a wonderful job and for being so nice. I hope I get to work with her again in the future.

"Lauren is the best!"

So, so happy I found Lauren for our wedding / engagement photos. My wife and I loved working with her, and her team. She made things feel very relaxed and at ease. We love every single one of our photos, and will continue to use Lauren for anything in the future!

"Engagement pictures"

I also knew I wanted my engagement and wedding pictures to be something I didn't "cheap out" on. I had my eye on a few photographers, but then someone recommended Lauren to me & when I saw her work I was astonished!  My fiancé and I weren't impressed with the venue that we chose to take our pictures, and were a little scared of the positions we posed, etc. But without a doubt Lauren chose the best spots and the best lighting to make us look amazing! We had such a fun time and I couldn't recommend her enough!

"The best!"

I'm so glad I stumbled upon Lauren when I first started my search for a photographer to take our engagement and wedding pictures! My fiance and I were both nervous and didn't know what to expect for our engagement pictures, but Lauren and her assistant Amelia made us feel totally at ease and had suggestions for amazing shots. She is very patient and I cannot wait for her to photograph our wedding! :)

"Astonishing work!!!"

Lauren is the best of the best! She literally answered every single crazy/outrageous question I had about our big day and put all of my worries to rest. She was able to capture all of the love and emotion that we were hoping to witness on our big day, which is a pretty hard thing to show in a picture. Lauren took away a lot of my wedding day stresses and filled me with excitement and joy. She was so accommodating and even went above and beyond her photographer duties to help smooth out a couple of unforeseen issues at our venue. I hardly saw her the entire ceremony & reception, yet she captured EVERY SINGLE moment. There aren't enough kind words I could write that would explain how wonderful her work is, but the pictures she takes speak volumes. Each photo brings back such wonderful memories of our wedding day that I forgot about, after all, it just goes by so fast. So this is a big THANK YOU to Lauren for helping to make our wedding the day of our dreams!

by Amanda Mount


Lauren was very easy to work with! She is very organized and laid back (which helps take the stress off planning a wedding)! She got every picture we wanted and more! She thought outside the box. I highly recommend her! Could not have picked a more affordable and outstanding photographer for our wedding!

"Can't Wait For The Wedding!"

I booked Lauren a few months ago for my wedding through a referral. Since then, she has gone above and beyond for me. Our engagement pictures were so fun! Lauren has been able to answer all of my random, crazy, bridezilla questions and God bless her for that :) I can't wait for her to shoot our big day. She is absolutely wonderful! Highly recommended!

We were so thrilled with our engagement session with Lauren. We wanted a snow scene and Lauren was so great at being flexible to accommodate on a random snowy Friday. I also loved that we linked up on Pinterest so we could be on the same page about shots and could reference the board together whenever I needed inspiration on posing. I cannot wait for our wedding day to be here and for Lauren to make magic happen again! (engagement & wedding pictures)

"Stunning Work!!"

Lauren's work is breathtaking! She is a genius behind the camera and the results are truly stunning.

She is a true professional. Our family of six will definitely use Lauren again and recommend her to our family and friends.

"Amazing Quality"

Lauren is a true professional and has the amazing ability to capture not only an excellent photo, but someone in their best light and the ability to capture their personality in every shot. As a plus size model I shoot a few times a year to keep my book updated and I can honestly say I will solicit Lauren for more portfolio updates and also for family pictures. Thank you so much Lauren for your excellent work and your professionalism! Continue to grow in your craft. - Cicely (model)

Lauren does a great job with our photographs. She has done our family portraits for 3 years, and I even referred a friend for her wedding photography. She takes plenty of pictures and works well with my kids, so we always get great shots of everyone.
