from my couples:


My best piece of wedding planning advice: HIRE LAUREN. She is seriously the best. She’s one of the parts of my wedding that my mom still talks about. My whole family loved her, she was so professional and fun, took lots of great pictures, and made us feel so comfortable. Neither my husband nor I like posing for pictures, and yet she made it so easy and enjoyable. She was very responsive even during her maternity leave. I can’t say enough great things about her, would absolutely recommend her to anyone!!!

Lauren is a truly talented photographer. Her warm and easy-going demeanor really put my husband and I at ease in front of the camera, which is not an easy feat! She really went out of her way to make us feel comfortable, including giving me her shoes when my feet started to hurt! Lauren brings so much kindness and creativity to her sessions, we will definitely be booking more in the future.

Lauren is absolutely AMAZING! The first impression I had of Lauren was that she was so genuine and takes pride in her work. She made us feel so comfortable with her as a photographer and her quality of work. Lauren introduced herself, her background, and wanted to know our love story. She took her time to get to know us instead of just rushing into her pricing for the engagement photos and wedding photos pricing and samples. I believe that is why both our engagement photo and wedding photo sessions were so easy because we got to know Lauren and Lauren got to know us. She knew our expectations and even added new ideas! The photos she took came out so beautifully that both my husband and I and our families were in awe. The quality of work she does is by far the best we've seen. But, not only that, we didn't just gain a photographer, we gained a friend. I would definitely recommend Lauren for any photo sessions! Easy to work with, funny, creative, and just the absolute best!

Lauren did such a fantastic job capturing the beautiful day that was our wedding! I remember how magical the wedding was and thought to myself that I wish I will always be able to remember how wonderful I felt that day. But when I saw the pictures that Lauren took I knew that I will never be able to forget that moment. The album she put together is so beautiful, and I will cherish it forever. Lauren is amazing and one of the nicest people I met. Thank you so much for making our special day the experience of a lifetime.

If you are looking to have professional photos done, Lauren Benson Photography is the only way to go! Lauren has been capturing our family's special moments from my niece's newborn days, my engagement, to our wedding day. When it comes to taking pictures, I can admit I am very awkward at "posing" for the camera, but that wasn't the case with Lauren. She makes you feel very relaxed and comfortable, and that is what makes her work so good. Looking at all our photos, I can feel the love and happiness through them. She really knows how to capture the story. I will definitely be a repeat customer for years to come!

A wedding photographer that caters to YOUR story.

I'm a firm believer that every couple has a unique story, and your wedding photos should reflect that. Your wedding photographer should be more than just a person who takes photos. It's my job to ensure that your photos tell your big day in an emotional and authentic way. From getting to know you two during your wedding consult, to designing your heirloom wedding album. I'm here to make your wedding experience the best it can be!



It all started when I was a little girl. I was absolutely obsessed with books and stories, and by the age of 9, I had checked out every book I could read at our local library. I still craved more and more stories, so I decided to create my own. With a disposable camera in one hand and a pen in the other, I was able to create stories based on what I saw. My favorite stories to tell? Love stories.
