Lauren is an absolute godsend! She has an incredible artistic eye with equally matched talent. I booked Lauren to photograph my wedding (12/8/13) but since we're based in Houston and she's located in Austin, she happily connected with us over Skype. Over the course of our Skype call, I could tell immediately that Lauren was attentive, professional and super organized. I shared with her my style and she went above and beyond our expectations. I don't know how she managed to be so many places at once during the wedding! She took so many amazing photos- each one being high, magazine quality style.
In short, I loved working with her and recommend her highly! All of our family and friends are gushing at how amazing our photos look and it's all thanks to Lauren!

We used Lauren's services for our Engagement pictures and destination wedding in Playa del Carmen, Mexico and couldn't be happier. Everyone compliments our photographs and the beauty in Lauren's work. I told her ahead of time that my fiance wasn't very photogenic and she gave us tips throughout our sessions to help with our facial expressions, and our pictures turned out great. I also had ideas for specific pictures and shared my thoughts with Lauren and she was able to combine her skills and my vision beautifully.
I did a lot of research on choosing a local photographer (i.e. in Mexico) versus taking a photographer to your wedding, and I would recommend taking your photographer because we felt more comfortable and were able to develop a relationship with Lauren after a great experience during our engagement pictures. Plus, Lauren has destination wedding experience and our photos turned out amazing! She was clearly knowledgeable about differences in indoor/outdoor lighting and everything else that you have to think about related to destination weddings.
For our destination wedding, we chose the package that included Lauren and a second photographer and I would highly recommend that if it is feasible for you because it allows them to capture different perspectives at the same time. For example, my hubby's expression as I was walking down the aisle. Lauren was also great at coming up with ideas for family photos and bridal party pictures.
Lauren is based out of Austin and we live in Dallas, but the fact that we were not located in the same city didn't make a difference. Lauren was quick to respond to e-mails and extremely professional. I could go on and on about how pleased we are but don't think there is anything else to say besides you won't regret your choice with Lauren Reynolds Photography.
many thanks, Veronica & Marcos
Lauren Reynolds was referred to us by a friend of ours who used Lauren's services for wedding and engagement photos. Lauren and her team are extremely friendly, professional, and tuned in to the needs of the bride and groom and the mood / rhythm of the event. All of this combined with absolutely stunning photography, makes Lauren the perfect photographer.
I am so happy with the photos of our wedding and pre-wedding family photos. Lauren is great with kids as well. My step daughter goes on and on about how "awesome" she is whenever Lauren's name is mentioned. ~Heather & Nick :)
Working with Lauren Reynolds was one of the best decisions we made with our wedding! Photography was something that was very important to us. We were looking for a person who was professional and experienced, but most importantly, someone that we connected with and who understood the style of photography that we envisioned. In our first meeting with Lauren, we knew that she was the photographer for us.
Her ideas for our engagement photos were a perfect fit for us and she put us right at ease throughout the shoot.
Our wedding weekend was three nights of events and Lauren was with us throughout the entire weekend. She did such an amazing job at capturing the love and the joy of the weekend in beautiful candid moments.
Lauren was such a pleasure to work with and we will always be grateful to her for all of the memories she caught throughout the weekend!

Lauren is amazing!! She did our engagement and bridal portraits as well as shot our wedding. When it came to the portraits, she was stellar at finding new, unique, and beautiful places for us to take the pictures. She did such a good job of making us feel at ease, and her posing is immaculate. We were nervous at first as we are not used to being in front of the camera, but she did a great job of relaxing us.
Lauren is also a total sweetheart, which was so important on the day of the wedding since she basically acts as your shadow. She caught every single moment of our big day, down to the sweet dance moves being broken down on the dance floor. She was also so fast when it came to family pictures that we actually had time to enjoy the cocktail hour. She even pulled us aside during the dinner so that we could take sunset pictures, which turned out to be some of my absolute favorite. I would recommend Lauren to anyone, she was incredible!

We feel so blessed that Lauren Reynolds was our wedding photographer. We were very specific when it came to photography because, for us, it was the most important choice in a vendor.
We live in Orange County, CA, surrounded by highly rated wedding photographers, but none of them could hold a flame to Lauren's photos. She captured the true spirit of our wedding. We flew her out from Austin, TX, and we're SO thrilled we did! She didn't miss a moment! Not only are her photos amazing, but she was SO great with all the guests. She made what would usually feel like a posed photo, feel natural. She was very low key and non-intrusive. During the cocktail hour we did the traditional group photos, and she was so fast, yet the photos were perfect! I will always be so grateful to Lauren for making our wedding as wonderful and memorable as it was.

We loved having Lauren take our engagement and wedding photos. She made the entire process very simple and enjoyable. We both tend to be camera shy, but she immediately put us at ease and made us feel comfortable.
We were very impressed with her attention to detail and ability to tell a story through photos. We especially loved her talent for capturing candid moments and her creative approach to portraits.
Our wedding day flew by faster than we could have ever imagined, but thanks to Lauren we'll always have these memories!

I could never really say enough about Lauren. We used her for our engagement and wedding pictures and I couldn't be happier. She gives great direction without making you feel awkward posing for pictures. That was really important to me. Having someone that you clicked with and could make you feel comfortable.
We had a ton of people in our wedding party and a lot of family and she worked so fast and still managed to take breathtaking pictures! She was professional and so sweet and respectful to all of our guests. I love her style and she has a great eye for candids. In the end, pictures are the only thing you have left and she captured "us" perfectly! Love, Maria
