Elegant Laguna Gloria Wedding | Rebecca & Will


The Busen Wedding! Rebecca & Will are some of the coolest people I know, so it’s no surprise that their wedding was too.

First of all, Laguna Gloria is one of the most beautiful places in Austin. The villa steps and fountain were a gorgeous backdrop to their ceremony, and the view of the river impressed their out of town guests. (Yes, Texas is actually pretty! 😊)

They also reserved the closest parking spots in front of the villa for guests who brought their supercars. A million dollar Mclaren was in the first spot. 🤩 And you better believe we photographed Will rolling up in his Jaguar.

Remember when the temperature dropped by 60 degrees in a few hours, setting a record in Austin? Yeah, that was right before their wedding.❄️ It was COLD, but you wouldn’t even know it, because Rebecca handled it like a champ. She looked stunning in her dress, and didn’t complain about the cold at all.

Once we all went under the tent (with heat pumping in), it was really comfortable. The string lights in the tent were romantic and dance floor had some wild moments. I think Will almost hit the ceiling a few times when being thrown up in the air.

I’ve loved getting to know Becca & Will since his proposal in 2020. Have fun being married, you two!!

I love how they incorporated their dogs!


Rebecca’s Review on The Knot

Look no further for the perfect wedding photographer – Lauren is WONDERFUL! Working with Lauren was one of the best decisions we made throughout the entire wedding planning process! She was with us through every step of our engagement and wedding, including the proposal, engagement photos, bridal portraits, and wedding day. My (now) husband found Lauren while planning the proposal. Not only did she give him advice about location, time of day, how to get me to wear a dress, and keep it a secret, she also set up the proposal location with flowers and champagne! She even pretended to be a restaurant hostess on the phone while we were on our way to dinner the day of the proposal to keep it a surprise! Lauren does a great job of making you comfortable in front of the camera even if you don’t have any posing experience. She gave us tips on how to pose while acting natural. She even curated a custom playlist that helped create a really fun vibe. She sent us a questionnaire prior to the engagement photo session in order to get to know us as a couple and to learn about what things we were looking for in our photos. Lauren has a really creative eye for framing a shot while also incorporating your own personal style. Lauren is also so much more than just a photographer. She knows Austin extremely well and she has great recommendations for photo locations around the city. Lauren completely saved my bridal portrait session in more than one way. When I found out the night before my bridal portraits that my wedding venue was closed that day, she suggested numerous other locations that matched the style of photos I wanted. We changed our plans the morning of and the bridal portraits turned out even more stunning than I could have imagined! I also had a dress zipper malfunction on the day of the bridal portraits and Lauren was so flexible and worked around it by taking photos different angles so you can’t even tell there was an issue by looking at the photos. Before our wedding day, we had a call with Lauren to discuss everything from the wedding timeline to the photo shot list. She was extremely thorough and made sure that we discussed all the little details so the day could go as smoothly as possible. Our wedding day was unseasonably chilly and Lauren handled it so well! We were still able to take all of the photos that we initially planned to do because Lauren is so efficient and so good at giving directions to everyone involved. She helped us wrangle the bridal party and all of our various family members to make sure we got through all of the photos on our shot list. Lauren is wonderful at planning around different lighting and helping to keep everything on schedule to catch the golden hour. She also took beautiful photos at night by bringing an additional lighting setup. Overall, we could not be more pleased with how all of our photos turned out. They’re absolutely incredible and exactly how we imagined! Finally, Lauren has EXCEPTIONAL turnaround time! She had a ton of our photos ready less than two weeks after the wedding, and she sent us the full gallery one month after the wedding, but the thing that really blew us away was that she edited a preview gallery of our wedding photos AT OUR WEDDING and had had them displayed during the reception for our guests to view! If you’re looking for the PERFECT wedding photographer that you can rely on for anything and everything, hire Lauren!”
