“Picking our wedding photographer was one of the hardest parts of planning our wedding. I looked at/emailed probably 15-20 photographers prior to choosing Lauren. Initially, I was choosing her because of a few reasons, her reasonable price, photos that look stunning, she responded quickly to my emails and took time to meet with me to discuss her photography background/point of view prior to us booking with her. I didn’t realize how much her energetic, but laid back personality would help my fiancé and I feel comfortable in front of the camera. My fiancé and I are about the least photogenic couple known to man and she made us look like we have been doing photoshoots for years. How would I describe our engagement session? Snow and subzero temperatures are probably the best words. Even though the weather was less than appealing to be out in for 2 hours, Lauren was eager to suffer through the weather with us and because of that, we have absolutely stunning pictures. Lauren is amazing and I cannot speak highly enough of her and her talent!”- Erika & Marc

“Lauren took our engagement and wedding photos and she was wonderful! We never felt awkward in front of the camera, she set up specific shots but was also able to capture the moments in between. She was extremely quick getting us our photos after each event. One of my favorite things about Lauren’s packages is getting all of the photos she took, not just the ones she liked. This allowed me to pick my favorites and also helped me remember some of the finer details during our wedding day-it goes so fast! You won’t regret choosing Lauren to photograph a special moment in your life!” – Kaitlin Tyler

“Lauren did our engagement and wedding photos. She has an incredibly fair pricing scheme in an industry known for price inflation. She is a professional who knows what works, but ultimately she’s very flexible in attending to what you’re looking to do. Her personality is perfect for the job, as she brings a light touch and infectious joy to the whole process. On top of all that, she works quickly and delivers a superior product. We couldn’t be happier for having hired her.” – Matt & Stephanie Ely

“Lauren was such a gem to work with and I can’t imagine having anyone else capture moments from our wedding day. She has a heart of gold and such an eye for capturing great pictures. All of our pictures turned out better than we had ever expected! What a blessing it was to work with Lauren!” Miranda Groen

“Choosing Lauren Koleff Photography was one of the easiest decisions we made for our wedding, if not the easiest. In fact, she was the very first vendor we contacted because we were familiar with her photos and knew she was the photographer for us. Lauren is not only professional but also light hearted, genuine, and always knows how to make you crack a smile. Our engagement session was one of the most fun days my husband and I ever had and she really knew how to add the little touches that are important to you in such a beautiful way. Let’s face it, no matter how hard you try not to be stressed on your wedding day there is always a little stress involved. Lauren was my champion at rolling with the little hiccups, keeping everyone calm and happy, and making me laugh the whole way. She pays attention to what is important to you and never misses a beat. Plus, her bundle comes with a USB of your photos and printing rights tailored with the cutest packaging and a personal note. Hands down the best!” –  Jacqueline & Nick

“I reached out to Lauren under the suggestion of a co-worker who had recently hired her to shoot their wedding. The photos were SO beautiful I had to inquire. I should have known from the first messages we exchanged that this was going to be a great connection. I was looking for a photographer in Indiana who would be able to give us great engagement photos in an short amount of time, in order for us to get the invites out to people as we were having a short engagement and a destination wedding out in Estes Park, CO. The engagement session was fantastic and I left feeling so satisfied and secretly wishing I was long-time friends with this complete stranger I had just met. There is simply a way about her that is so inviting and genuine and HILARIOUS. More than anything I so wished that Lauren could have been our wedding photographer, but with our humble budget we had, we thought it best to hire a Colorado photographer. After about a week or two of simply drooling over the perfection of our engagement photos, I shot Lauren a quick message that started with “I’ve got a crazy idea… any way we could make you shooting our Colorado wedding a reality?” Her response was “I LOVE crazy ideas”, and before we knew it, Lauren was heading out to Estes Park, CO for our September wedding. I literally can’t say enough good things about Lauren Koleff. Her ability alone speaks volumes. The way she is able to capture special candid moments with beautiful natural lighting, produces breath-taking photos. I’m not saying 1 out of every 30 pictures is breath-taking… EVERY. SINGLE. PHOTO. has a unique artistic flare. As if her photos weren’t enough, her personality makes her the whole package. I couldn’t recommend a better professional. I hired a wedding photographer, but I left with a perfectly documented wedding day and a sweet new friendship.” – Lauren + David

“As far as wedding and engagement photographers go, Lauren Koleff Photography is the cream of the crop. Lauren is one of a kind special lady and has the unique ability to get anyone (seriously anyone, even if you think you are not photogenic) to take a great, fun, and beautiful picture. She encourages goofiness, captures the love and uniqueness of every couple, and is incredibly dedicated to getting the pictures that the (lets be real) bride wants. I have seen first hand that she is able to connect with all different types of personalities; which is so helpful when she graciously directs wedding parties and couples through their photo sessions. She works tirelessly behind the scenes to specifically capture every moment that makes a wedding special. And to top it all off, you are guaranteed to have more pictures of the highest quality than you could ever possibly use! The variety and care that she puts into each picture, each couple, each sessions, is why I would full heartedly recommend her to ANYONE looking for a photographer!” Lydia Horner

“WOW Lauren was worth every penny. We had Lauren take both our engagement pictures and wedding pictures. Besides the absolutely stunning photos (seriously, my friends were trying to get me to start a blog or post them to pinterest), Lauren edits every single photo from your sessions with her and puts them on a flash drive for you to have ALL of them. I didn’t even know that was a thing photographers did!? Lauren took the time to get to know both me and my (now) husband so that we felt natural and comfortable around her (and we really did!). She has a fun, light, flexible personality which is exactly what you want out of any vendor on your wedding day. She went above and beyond just being a photographer for us. She gave advice about timelines (that I’m SO glad we followed!) and even bustled my dress when there was no one else around. But obviously the main point here is that she does phenomenal work. I look back at our engagement pictures and wedding pictures and I feel all the things that I felt those days. Her pictures really allow you to remember moments that may have slipped from your memory in the most beautiful way possible. I LOVE my pictures, and so does everyone I know. I would more than highly recommend her. In my opinion, there is just no one in the area that rivals what she does. WE LOVE LAUREN” – Katie Kelly

“Last May, I attended a wedding for some friends who had hired Lauren as their photographer. I was blown away by their beautiful portraits, and knew I had to enlist Lauren for my own wedding. Lauren photographed my husband and I for our engagement photos, which turned out wonderfully. Shortly after our engagement shoot, I learned of an illness in the family, and we were prompted to move our wedding up 8 months. Lauren was very understanding and easy to work with through the date change. On our actual wedding day, Lauren was prompt, professional, and an absolute pleasure to work with. Our wedding portraits were gorgeous and looked like a page out of a fairy-tale. I received numerous compliments from friends and family who also loved the photos. I’m a firm believer in treating wedding portraits as an investment. It’s the one tangible piece you have after your wedding day. Lauren is a true artist, and her services were 100% worth the investment. I look forward to celebrating more milestones with her as our photographer!” – Stephanie Dykhuizen

“Lauren is truly an amazing photographer, I cannot say enough good things about her. She did our engagement and wedding photos and we could not be happier with all of them!! She is so sweet and personable and captured the most perfect moments of our big day and had a few amazing photos edited and posted for us to view and share the next day!! You will not go wrong with this girl, she is the BEST!!!” – Julie & Bill

“Lauren Koleff has got to be the most professional and also the most fun photographer I have met. She has been a joy to work with, has brought out the best in 2 rather shy photographees and after seeing her stunning work for our engagement photos it is our easiest decision of the whole wedding planning process to have her back to make the day that much more wonderful. She’s reasonably priced and you won’t believe the value of the money you spend. Choose Lauren Koleff Photography and you will look back on your fondest memories with the most beautiful photos imaginable.” – Dillon + Tori Hensley

“I can’t even express how happy I am with Lauren’s work at my wedding. She is so fun and easy to work with, and she has an AMAZING eye for everything that goes into a good photo. She listened to everything we wanted but also gave great direction for where to shoot and poses to try. Most of the time it felt like she was just capturing us being ourselves. And her timing! She started posting a few sneak peek pictures within HOURS of the wedding! It was so exciting to get to see such beautiful moments right away! Without a doubt, she’s the whole package — even my groom, who normally hates taking photos, opened up with her and had an awesome time. If you’re getting married anywhere near Lafayette, you need this girl.” – Libby Wilger


“After seeing Lauren’s previous work it was a no brainer for us to pick her to capture the spirit of our wedding. We asked for a more unconventional photo shoot and Lauren was eager to meet us far away for a 2-hour photo shoot. Every hoop she needed to jump through for us she did with grace and professionalism. We could not have been happier or in more awe over how great she makes us look and how the pictures turned out. Thank you so much Lauren for your amazing work.” – Bella & Alex

“To say that Lauren is amazing still falls short of the incredible service she provides and the emotion she is able to capture. ABSOLUTELY the best experience! She pours her heart and soul not only into the photos but us as a couple. She really takes the time to chat and get to know us better and that really does reflect in her work. 10/10 would recommend her!!!!! You will not regret it!!!” – Emily & Trevor

“Lauren took the pictures for my brother’s wedding and did a fantastic job! She was tons of fun and had great ideas, but let us add our own style to all the pictures. I’ve been in quite a few weddings and have always dreaded the pictures. Lauren made it fun and was always laughing and very organized. We got through the pictures quickly and Lauren was very involved with the reception and everyone should use her for their wedding! Not only did she take great pictures, a table cloth lit on fire and she stomped it out while simultaneously taking pictures, SHE SAVED THE WEDDING!” – Brad Rusche

“I found Lauren Koleff’s wedding photos on Facebook in college, and immediately noticed how natural, genuine, and detailed they were. Later, when my now-husband proposed, choosing Lauren Koleff Photography for engagement and wedding photos was entirely natural. She is easy to work with, very funny and relatable, and yet lovingly honest about what looks good in terms of settings and poses. On our wedding day, Lauren offered support and smiles, and captured every moment I could have wanted on camera (from embraces to shared glances to laughter). She offered great ideas, and used a variety of settings at the venue. We ended up with a whole lot of fabulous pictures to choose from. And, on what is known to be one of the most stressful days a couple can have, it was so good to have her remind me and my groom that it was OUR day to celebrate. Her presence was calming and playful, and we are delighted we chose her as our photographer!” – Lauren Claywell

Lauren took our engagement and wedding photos and she was AMAZING! We loveee our pictures and have gotten so many compliments on them! She made us feel comfortable, which was so important to us! Lauren is fun, kind, up beat and captured our personalities and love perfectly! Our pictures are beautiful and I am so thankful to have them so we can look back and relive the best day ever 🙂 I really can’t say enough great things about lauren-she’s the best !!! ? Charlee Bontrager

I can’t even put to words how extremely talented Lauren is. She captured so many feelings that are felt on your wedding. The joy, the tears, and the most laughter that you get to look back at for the rest of your life. From beginning of planning to after the wedding she is there to help, give you support and answer questions! She helped me with what i felt like was one of the hardest tasks (wedding day timeline) and throughout the day made she we stayed on track! She even provides an extremely helpful guide as to what to expect and a lot of pointers! On our big day, she was more then great with our first look, family portraits, and our bridal pictures! Lauren is amazing at what she does and I couldn’t imagine having anyone else capture our beautiful day except her! ❤- Ashley Kult

“Lauren is one of the best photographers I’ve ever encountered! She takes amazing pictures and her laid back attitude makes any engagement or wedding session extremely comfortable and a lot of fun to be a part of! Anyone who works with her will have absolutely no regrets!” – Kerri Wunderink

 “Lauren does such an incredible job! My husband and I are not one for pictures but we felt so comfortable having Lauren photograph us for our engagement session and wedding. She is able to find beauty in some of the most ordinary places and captures your special days so wonderfully. Thanks to Lauren we now have over two thousand photos that we will cherish for a lifetime. Can’t wait for our next photo opportunity with her!!”- Haley & Derek Baker
