Kind Words. Edmonton Wedding Photographer.

Edmonton wedding photographer

2016 was an amazing year for me and it is all thanks to my wonderful couples! As an Edmonton wedding photographer one of the best parts of my job is hearing how happy my couples are after they get their photos back! Their kind words fill me with such gratitude and remind me how lucky I am to be able to document their love. Here are just some of those testimonials from this past year.

“We had Lauren capture our fall wedding in October 2016. We had been referred to Lauren by a family member and we absolutely loved her! From our first meeting, to engagement session, to wedding day we could not have asked for a better experience. Lauren was extremely professional and easy to work with. She pays close attention to details such as centering photos, capturing unique angles/moments, and incorporating architecture/landscapes into the photos- which was something we got a lot of compliments on and really appreciated! Lauren was sure to get all the photos on our wedding day that we had requested, and provided us with just the right amount of direction which made the day run smoothly and put us at ease. We ended up getting an unexpected snow fall the weekend of our wedding and Lauren was very helpful in keeping us calm, and managing to capture photos that we didn’t even think would be possible! We were so happy with the final results and the ability to have access to our photos at the end (and in great time!). Her pricing is also extremely competitive for the quality of photo and the time you get to spend with her and her second shooter, which is another reason we went with her. We were sad when the day was over, but are hoping we can come up with another excuse to work with Lauren again in the future! Highly recommend her photography!”

“The search for our wedding photographer was quite strenuous. Meeting many amazing photographers made the choice very difficult until we met Lauren. After our meeting with her we knew she would be the one to capture our special day. Our engagement session with Lauren went perfect! We were worried about how comfortable we would feel in front of the camera. Arnold and I aren’t the type of people who love to get their photos taken but Lauren made us feel at ease and we ended up having a blast! After our engagement session we were so excited to see the work she would do for our wedding. Having our wedding in the fall was something we wanted but we were very nervous about the weather. Sure enough, the forecast called for rain on our day. Lauren immediately opened the channel of discussion for indoor venues and gave us many suggestions. Luckily, the weather cleared up shortly after our ceremony although it was freezing. Lauren braved the cold with our wedding party to take some incredible shots. You can truly feel her passion for photography and it definitely shows in the results. We cannot thank Lauren enough for all the special moments she captured for us on the most important day of our lives. We will treasure those captured moments forever. We will always highly recommend Lauren. Her work is amazing, but once you met her, you’ll see how she stands out among the rest. ”

“Booking Lauren Hannah as our photographer was definitely the best decision we made regarding our wedding. She was great with communication, was tremendously helpful with choosing locations, makes you feel comfortable when taking photos, but most of all, Lauren made the experience fun for us. She takes extremely beautiful photos that we love; we were so blessed to have such an amazing person capture our wedding day for us!”

Having her there throughout our entire wedding day was fantastic and we felt so comfortable with her. Couldn’t imagine our photos turning out any better, would definitely recommend Lauren!”

“I would 100% recommend Lauren. She is professional, flexible, fun and takes such beautiful and candid photos. One great feature is that she offers longer hours than most photographers, which was great so we could capture every moment of our special day. She is so very talented. We honestly could not have chosen a better person as our engagement and wedding photographer.”

“I had found Lauren on wedding wire and her 5 star reviews do not lie. What I loved about Lauren’s photos from other couples were those honest little moments that she caught and I did not think she would fit into our budget. Needless to say I was thrilled when I found out that she would.

She stayed with us all day starting with us getting ready to the dance where she caught some really great memories. When I had met with her I told her how important it was for us to get candid shots between us and with our friends and family. She did not disappoint and when we got our pictures back I was actually shocked at how many of our guests she managed to capture, things that we would not have seen otherwise. She took some really lovely formals as well and the great part was it wasn’t awkward posing for our pictures. When I look back at our pictures now I see the story that she was able to tell and the magic from our wedding day will forever live on in them. She truly became a part of our day along with her second shooters. Not only is Lauren a professional she is a great person to be around and an especially calming presence for a bride.”

“Lauren was our wedding and engagement photographer this year for our Fall wedding. We loved working with her and loved the results from both sessions. She was so easy to get along with and just great to work with all around. We’ve had so many compliments on our photos and we have only posted a few so far! The photography was one of the top things on my list as when you look back in years to come the photos are what really keep the memories of that day alive. We’re so happy we went with Lauren and would HIGHLY recommend her to anyone looking for an amazing Edmonton wedding photographer!”

Amanda & Jordan. Edmonton Surprise Proposal.

Fun Edmonton Wedding photographer

It was such an honour to capture this special moment as Jordan proposed to his beautiful girlfriend of 4 years earlier this month! Amanda thought we were just doing a couple’s session for their anniversary which was the day before. She was completely surprised and ecstatic as Jordan got on one knee and asked her to be his wife. I absolutely love her reaction as Jordan pulled out the ring! It was so exciting to be a part of this couple’s engagement story.

Stephanie & Kurt. Pyramid Lake Resort Wedding.

Fall wedding at Pyramid Lake Resort

Stephanie & Kurt love adventure, the outdoors and the mountains so it was  fitting that they were married at Pyramid Lake Resort in Jasper. I knew after meeting these two that their wedding would a romantic and super fun day. I traveled out to the beautiful resort in October to capture their amazing day and it was a perfect celebration of their love.

I loved that these two were willing to traverse precarious rocks to get the shot. At one point Stephanie’s train was almost blown into the lake by the wind as we walked across. They were troopers and I love the resulting photos.

The couple and the wedding party braved the cold for most of the pictures so we headed inside Jasper Park Lodge to warm up with some drinks before heading to the reception.

Edmonton was hit some unexpected snow fall that Thanksgiving weekend and the snow was still coming down that morning. When I arrived Lisa was in high spirits in spite of the unexpected weather. She was so excited that the day had finally arrived!
