We knew that having a great photographer was one of the most important things to us when it came to planning our wedding. I spent hours searching online for a photographer. I mean hours...and hours. I was so excited when I found LWP. We loved Lauren’s photography style and knew she would be the perfect fit for our small, beach wedding.
Communicating with Lauren was so simple. My fiancé and I were planning our wedding in just a couple of months and were trying to keep it as low-stress as possible. Lauren helped to accomplish that by being extremely organized and by helping to create a timeline for photos for our wedding day. On the big day, everything went so smoothly. Brian, Lauren’s photography partner and husband, even helped to make sure that our small group of guests migrated to an area in our venue where they would not be able to see me prior to the ceremony while I was having photos taken. This is something I had forgotten to arrange for and really felt that he went above and beyond by doing.
Lauren had so many great ideas for photos of my husband and I after our ceremony. We had engagement pictures taken by a different photographer in Iceland, where we realized that we are not models and are not very comfortable in front of a camera. The experience with Lauren was completely different. We felt that she gave us great direction and made us feel very comfortable, which reflected in our photos! While we were taking our bridal party photos, she was sure to ask us if we had any special requests for pictures. I was thankful for that and cannot remember ever being in a bridal party where we had that opportunity.
After the wedding, I was so surprised to receive our finished photos so quickly! My husband and I are thrilled with how beautifully they turned out! Lauren’s detail shots could not be more amazing. She is truly talented. Lauren and Brian were able to capture so many fun moments during our reception. It makes me so happy to look through our wedding album, which we do all the time! We are very thankful to have such beautiful photos to help us to remember our favorite day.
I would pick LWP to photograph our wedding again in a second!
From the moment we got engaged, Ben and I were so excited to start planning our wedding. We dove right in and began our search for a photographer who would perfectly capture our big day, relationship and overall style.
After reaching out to what felt like a thousand photographers, we came across LWP and immediately fell in love with their work. From their style, the lighting they used, to the emotions and candids they effortlessly and beautifully captured, LWP was everything we were looking for in a photographer and we were so excited to have them shoot one of the biggest days of our lives together.
Not only are we obsessed with their work, we also fell in love their work ethic. We've learned planning a wedding from out-of-town can be tough, especially when it comes to setting aside time and meeting with vendors. Lauren and Brian made this process incredibly easy for us by helping us find a time and a place that worked perfectly for our engagement session and our crazy schedules (and they gave us something to look forward to by sending us ideas through their blog posts and magazine!).
The weather for our engagement session was over 90 degrees, humid, and there was a chance of thunderstorms - while conditions weren't the most ideal, thankfully with LWP it didn't matter. Lauren and Brian went out of their way to photograph us downtown, they encouraged us the entire time, and they found the most beautiful backdrops and locations for our photos (places that I as a DC native never even knew about!). We were blown away by the end result and adore the photos they were able to capture of us. After 8 years of being together they are by far our favorite photos we have together!
LWP quickly followed up with a sneak peak the very next day and our full gallery was available 3 days later. We were so impressed with the turnaround time and were so happy with the amount of pictures provided (it was so hard to choose favorites!).
All in all - we are so excited to have Lauren and Brian capture our wedding, and couldn't be happier to have them as part of our wedding squad! :)
After following LWP on Instagram since before our engagement, they were my only consideration for a wedding photographer.
After booking them, I learned that they don't just provide gorgeous photos, they provide the best experience in every step from our helpful welcome mail, to easy communication, to the wealth of information on LWP's website. I was very worried about finding a time for our engagement session after experiencing scheduling conflicts with others for our out-of-town wedding until Lauren offered to schedule us for a day we would already be in town!
We met Lauren and Brian at the great location they had picked out and they continued to show they are true pros - they learned more about us and our wedding day while arranging great shots, accommodated some special requests, and even gave us honeymoon recommendations since they had recently vacationed at our honeymoon spot!
Waiting for pretty pictures is hard, so I loved how LWP gives a sneak peak. We were shocked when we saw how many photos were provided from our engagement shoot especially since they were delivered sooner than expected! Every photo makes me smile uncontrollably.
We are so thankful to have this great husband and wife team as our wedding photographers and HIGHLY recommend them!
When we picked Lauren and Brian to be our photographers we knew we would be getting world-class photos, but what we didn't know is how much fun we would have during the entire process. We were a little nervous as to how we would start planning for the photo shoot and how to find a location. To help everything flow, Lauren provided us with a detailed questionnaire that helped reveal more about our relationship and personal styles to find the perfect photo shoot location. They also provided us with a book which had a variety of outfit ideas and tips that allowed us to be stress free in preparing for the day! Lauren and Brian are the most genuine people and it's so easy to talk with them. The entire process was super exciting and fun, and we wouldn't pick anyone else to help us in capturing the most magical days of our lives. We highly recommend Lauren Werkheiser Photography for anyone looking for an incredible pair of photographers for their wedding.
From the moment we discovered LWP, we knew that we had found our wedding photographers! Their ability to capture the most simple moments and transform them into the most beautiful memories through photography is truly a gift! They capture light in such a unique way, and creates classic, timeless photos that will be cherished for the years to come! Going into our engagement session, we were a little nervous about posing in front of the camera, but they made us feel so comfortable and it just came natural! We are so thrilled with their work, and look forward to working with them in the future to capture all of our milestones!
Working with LWP has been our favorite experience in our wedding planning process. During your sessions, they give amazing direction on how to create natural body language that translates beautifully in pictures. During such a busy and somewhat stressful time in life, with all the decisions of the smallest details, LWP is a breath of fresh air where you know things will always be taken care of. Their work is gorgeous with such a light and airy feel. There is no detail left behind and always a touch of love in all of their work. There is no doubt we have chosen the perfect person to share our day with, to help us create memories that we can look back on forever!
Lauren and Brian are the best photography team I know!!!
I've been following Lauren for a few years and absolutely love everything she does, so naturally I was SO excited to schedule our engagement shoot with LWP. We were absolutely blown away and thrilled with our photos from our session and also the professionalism before we even met for the shoot. Lauren was extremely helpful with ideas and open to our picnic on the beach. She was able to see our vision and capture it just as we desired. The streamlined communication and openness to be ourselves and be creative really made the shoot so much fun. Lauren and Brian are both easy going and laid back...they made the posing, and overall experience and comfort level of the shoot so at ease.
We LOVE your style and extremely quick turn around - a sneak peek to a few days later, the entire gallery!! We highly recommend LWP for engagement and weddings!!!! We can't wait to work with you both again!!! Thank you for making our engagement shoot such a memorable experience and capturing our love and story!! Seriously, you both are extraordinary people and we are SO grateful to have worked with you.
Dan and I both had the best experience working with LWP for our engagement photos! We appreciated the time they took to get to know not only what we were looking for from our session, but also us what we were like as a couple. They even went above and beyond to get a shot that was particularly special to Dan and I.
Because he really did not know what to expect, Dan was a bit nervous going into the session. His fears were very quickly calmed by LWP's laid back, warm, and confident presence. It felt more like walking around and taking pictures with friends, and by the end of the session, Dan could not stop talking about what a great time he had.
The turnaround time to receive our photos exceeded our expectations! We had our photos in about a week, and we cannot get enough of the photos. They capture us as a couple and are going to be photos that will decorate our home for years to come. We used two of our favorite photos on our save the dates, and have heard nothing short of rave reviews on how beautiful the photos are and how representative they are of Dan and I as a couple.
Lauren and Brian make a great duo to capture all the special moments of the big day! After meeting them for our engagement session, they were so nice and down to earth, they made it seem like we had known them for a long time - which really helped on our wedding day since we already felt comfortable working with them. Lauren was very helpful along the planning process and always quick to respond to my questions, and we love looking back at all of our pictures remembering how great that day was!
Lauren is absolutely amazing. Neither my fiance or I enjoy having our picture taken, especially when it is something that is forced or posed. When we shot our engagement session with Lauren it was much less painless and much more fun than either of us could imagine. She was very thorough and spent two hours with us making sure she got not just one, but several perfect shots. My fiancé and I specifically choose Lauren as our photographer because we were impressed with her artistic touch on each of her pictures. The angles, lighting, and colors that she shoots with make anybody look great. Even though we went in with expectations high, she still more than impressed us. She was able to capture something in our engagement pictures that made the both of us, as well as our family and friends, super happy … she perfectly captured our personality in every photo! We truly believe our engagement photos tell our story, which we of course think is the best - not that we're partial! :)
Picking a photographer was one of the most important pieces of wedding planning for us. From our initial inquiry and throughout the planning process, Lauren has responded to all of our questions very quickly, making us confident in our decision to go with LWP. She made us feel very comfortable during our engagement session and her quick turnaround time editing the photos was a great surprise! I am anxiously awaiting our big day and the photos to come!
LWP was very accommodating to our location and scheduling needs. They were familiar with various waterfront locations on the Eastern Shore and were able to work with us to find exactly what we wanted for our engagement session! We really wanted to have our shoot on a beach environment and Lauren knew of a tucked away location on Kent Island where we had not only beach, but also nature shots!
Before the engagement session, Chris thought it would be an awkward experience. However, after only a few minutes we were comfortable and felt like we could be ourselves all while being photographed by Lauren and Brian! It was awesome to receive a sneak peak photo within 24 hours and the gallery of fantastic, and memorable photos within a week!
We look forward to working with LWP for our entire wedding day! We would recommend LWP to any couple looking to have a waterfront inspired photo shoot!
My fiance and I so enjoyed working with Lauren and Brian for our engagement session. The communication leading up to, during and after the event was amazing! I also really appreciated their flexibility with the location and timing. We really appreciated their willingness to travel into some areas that were way off the beaten path to get some cool shots. My fiance and I were a bit anxious about being photographed and Lauren and Brian really put us at ease right away and took some amazing shots that we'll cherish for a lifetime. We highly recommend working with them and we are looking forward to working with them for our wedding!!
Our engagement session with Lauren was amazing! She guided us every step of the way and made the experience very enjoyable! She was open to our ideas and made us feel comfortable the whole time. Lauren was even willing to get a little sandy and wet in order to capture the best shots! Our photographs were beautiful and really captured us in the most natural way possible. We received our photos soon after our session and our prints were delivered quickly as well. We are looking forward to working with Lauren on our BIG DAY!!
Lauren and Brian were a dream to work with for our anniversary session! From our first interactions to the actual shoot itself, nothing was impossible or unable to be made to work for us. They are so easy to work with and make the session fun and laid back! What was even better was how quickly we got the gorgeous photos that really captured everything we were looking for - from the backdrop of the photos to the way they captured our anniversary. We can't recommend them enough. Thanks for everything you do Lauren and for making our session so enjoyable!
We couldn't be happier with the photos from our anniversary session with Lauren. We love every image - they really capture us a couple, which is so special to have preserved on film. As a bonus, the turnaround time was so fast and Lauren was incredibly sweet. We loved working with her!
Lauren, Thank you for your professionalism throughout our experience - from setting up a date and time, to finding a location - I appreciate you being so timely in replying to my emails and flexible with our availability. We loved the location you suggested for us, and we are so thankful for your patience and direction as we worked with the difficult elements of wind and our prop [kite]. We both felt very comfortable and at ease being photographed by you, and loved looking through the images that we received so quickly from you as well!
