“Lauren truly wants to understand your vision for your wedding day. She is a beautiful portrait photographer and encourages her subjects to act naturally together in order to capture their relationship perfectly. She makes sure your most prioritized moments are captured and will go out of the way to make sure your photography desires are met. Her fun personality and energy helped set the vibe for the whole day, which is so important since a wedding photographer will be with you for 8-10 straight hours.
Lauren captured all our emotions during our wedding day perfectly, and I’m so happy her work will help us relive our wedding day any day we want. I loved having previews before receiving the whole gallery to share with our family! In a world full of overused and artificial Instagram filters, Lauren’s photographs are light, whimsical, bright, natural and beautiful.”
Stevie, 2018 Bride
“Lauren is absolutely amazing – personally and professionally! Honestly, I have never been so happy with a service before. Lauren has gone above and beyond my expectations. I used Lauren for 4 different events (engagement, senior pictures, bridals and wedding) and I was more impressed each time with the pictures! You can easily see the effort and detail she puts into each and every one of her clients’ sessions. After finalizing our wedding timeline, I had complete trust that Lauren would capture our day perfectly – which she did. I absolutely LOVED working with Lauren and I can’t wait to do so again in the future!”
Rebecca, 2017 Bride
"I can’t share enough wonderful things about Lauren Garrison Photography!! Lauren was a dream to work with from start to finish. Our favorite part about our experience with Lauren was how comfortable she made us feel while taking our photographs. She constantly encouraged us, complimented us, guided us when we needed it, and did an amazing job of getting us to be ourselves so she could capture those special candid moments we shared as a couple. She was even thoughtful enough to bring us ice cold water to help us survive the heat. Lauren is incredibly sweet, professional, friendly, attentive, caring, timely, and most of all, she has an amazing eye for photography! Our photos are GORGEOUS!"
"If you are looking for a talented, genuine, 1000% customer service oriented photographer that will go the extra mile for you, then look no further!! Lauren and her team were amazing to work with and made me feel special from the beginning, all the way until the day we received our final wedding photos! I am so lucky that we found her!"
"Lauren is incredible. If you're looking for a photographer who not only cares about her clients but pays attention to detail, then she's your gal. My husband and I both loved the experience because she made us feel so comfortable during the shoot. There is a long list of reasons why she's great. One reason I would like to highlight is how quickly and efficiently she delivers the gallery. I couldn't have asked for a better, more fluid experience."
"Lauren did an incredible job and was easily one of the highlights of our wedding. She was EVERYWHERE at the reception and captured so many great moments that conjure up the feelings we had that night even as time has passed. She candidly captured great memories that remind us of that exact moment of our Wedding Day. She was incredibly easy to work with, exceedingly professional, affordable, quick on turnaround, produced incredible photos, made our lives less stressful, and is genuinely a great person that we trust. I would say that you should definitely hire her, otherwise you're missing out on a FANTASTIC experience."
Kevin, 2019 Groom
"Lauren was phenomenal! She took my UT Austin senior grad photos and they turned out amazing. I wasn't sure how I was going to feel about the photos because I'm a bit camera shy, but the photos were gorgeous and I couldn't wait to print them out and showcase them to family and friends."
Maria, 2018 UT Senior
"Lauren captured our special day perfectly! She’s the sweetest and super easy to work with! We just recently got all of our photos back and we couldn’t be happier! So lucky to have had such a wonderful photographer so that we can always remember our perfect day!"
Kristen, 2019 Bride
"Anyone needing a photographer has to hire Lauren! You're hiring a friend, not another vendor. Her skill speaks for itself, she's an amazing photographer. Anyone can see that when they look through her pictures. We were so blown away with her skill that we added a second engagement session! What you can't see, is the kindest, sweetest, most personable person behind the lens. Matthew and I were so comfortable with her from the start. She made taking pictures so easy and fun! There truly was never a dull moment. We were constantly laughing every time we took pictures with her. Lauren humored us in allowing our corgi, Pineapple, to tag along at our engagement session! We couldn't have imagined our wedding day without her. She truly was our favorite wedding vendor and we can't wait to continue hiring her for more life moments that need to be captured."
Angela, 2019 Bride
"Lauren is amazing! My friend and I did graduation photos with her, and we had so much fun. We were goofballs the whole time, and Lauren couldn't have been more perfect because she has a great sense of humor as well! I felt so comfortable with Lauren and she made sure to get all the special shots I wanted - including a few with my dog! It was such a great experience and I would highly recommend her to anyone. Thank you again, Lauren!"
Kendall, 2018 UT Senior
"We absolutely love all of our family photos that Lauren took during our mini-session. I saw Lauren's facebook ad and contacted her for more information. Lauren quickly responded and answered all of my questions. What I really loved was the website she uses to manage her business. It took care of everything from payments, email reminders, to previewing photos and downloading/ordering prints. The entire process was so easy! We will definitely be booking Lauren again for our next photo session. If you are looking for a great photographer.....Contact Lauren!"
Jennifer, Spring Mini-Session
"I cannot think of a moment throughout our whole wedding planning process that we didn’t absolutely adore her and her work. She posted previews on her blog and social media accounts so we didn’t have to wait to see our special moments and she even created a slideshow of our getting ready, first look photos and wedding party photos and displayed them at the reception. What an amazing surprise!! If you’re looking for an incredible experience and a truly professional accommodating sweet person for your big day, look no further… you’ve found her. Thank you for everything, Lauren!”
Amber, 2017 Bride
“Love, Love, Love the memories captured by Lauren. The pricing is extremely fair and the results are above all expectations!! It took less than a week to get to see all my daughter’s pictures. And she teased us throughout, dropping one or two pics to view every couple of days!! I am so pleased with my decision to use Lauren. You will be too!!! Thank you Lauren for giving me these beautiful pictures of my precious daughter!”
Renee, 2017 Senior Mom
“There is no better photographer than Lauren Garrison. She was absolutely phenomenal providing all of our photography needs. She photographed our engagement photos, bridal portraits and wedding, and my wife and I cannot express in words how amazing of a job Lauren did. She knows the best scenic spots for whatever backdrop you’re wanting and really makes you feel comfortable during each session. It does not matter if you don’t live in the Austin area, she is willing to travel to you and the portraits you receive will be worth every single penny! My wife and I as well as both of our extended families were blown away with the product and service Lauren provided. I will never search for another photographer again because no one is better than Lauren Garrison Photography.”
Jeff, 2017 Groom
"I thankfully did my senior pictures with Lauren, and I absolutely loved them all. She really went out of her way to get every single shot that I wanted. She also had great ideas and places to take me. Also, I think it’s important to have fun during these shoots and this was so much fun. Lauren is so sweet and makes you feel so comfortable. She’s the best and I can’t wait to hopefully use her again sometime. Thank you so much, Lauren!!! In love with every picture!!”
Savannah, 2018 UT Senior
“Lauren was an essential part of my parent’s surprise wedding vow renewal for their 30th anniversary! She helped me come up with a plan on how to keep a surprise and referred hair/makeup vendors and catering. On the phone and over email she was a delight and soooo organized and detailed. And in person she was so bright, warm and beautiful. We all just adored her. And if all that wasn’t enough, oh yea.. her photography! Her photos were gorgeously lit, perfectly framed and everyone looked wonderful. If only she had shot my own wedding. Thank you Lauren! We are all fans of your work and it will be framed in many of our homes.”
Liesel, Vow Renewal Ceremony
“Lauren did an amazing job on both our engagement photos and our wedding photos! I look at our photos almost every single day because she did such a beautiful job capturing the love and joy in each of our special moments. I plan on using her for all of our photos in our future together. Lauren, captures pictures of even the smallest details and has a talent that I’ve rarely seen in photographers.”
"Lauren was completely awesome! She made my daughter and her husband so comfortable and got beautiful photos. She was so low key and not in your face and because of that she got the most beautiful natural photos. We loved working with her."
"During portraits, Lauren can take control of the situation and get everything done efficiently and orderly, but during the ceremony and all of the other events she can fade into the background and be nearly invisible and out of the way while somehow being right in the middle of the action, getting amazing photos."
"Lauren is amazing! She was so professional before the photo shoot and even helped with outfit ideas and had a pre photo shoot pdf file that had so much helpful information on choosing outfits as well. She helped pick a beautiful location for our shoot and even when we were at the location she had beautiful spots there already in her back pocket for us and it made things go so smoothly. Lauren is fun and personable, and made it just like hanging out while simultaneously getting some photos taken! She even had cold water for us on a hot Texas day. The pictures are beautiful, perfect, and we couldn’t ask for anything better! My husband and I highly recommend Lauren."
"Lauren took my senior photos at UT and she did an absolutely phenomenal job! She was so easy to work with and knew exactly where to go and what to do. She was so friendly and the pictures turned out fantastic! I would recommend her to anyone."
"My best friend and I did a joint session with Lauren for our senior photos and it was such a blast! We were able to go to all the best places around campus together, while making each other smile and laugh and we even got some joint photos together! She was such an angel. I would definitely recommend doing a joint session with your best friend because it makes it feel more natural and eases the nerves that are naturally present in any photo shoot. Lauren made us feel so comfortable during our session, I am so happy we picked her to take our photos! We both love them so much. They turned out great!"
