latest thoughts from our couples

Everyone says their wedding day is perfect, but how many people can say their wedding day was perfect thanks to their photographers? From the outset when we were considering eloping in Yosemite National Park, Lauren and Allen were amazing. Their energy and calm from those initial skype sessions to a clueless Aussie couple who didn’t really know what they wanted to do, through to recommending, guiding and then planning for the most perfect elopement we could imagine.

It was as if they were inside our heads, knowing how to make our day exactly how we dreamt of it. Lauren and Allen helped us plan our day, taking into account the style of photography we wanted, the landscapes that we pictured, but most importantly the essence of us as a couple. They struck the perfect balance between a tightly planned schedule to maximise their time with us, whilst also creating the space for a wild and free day, that felt as if we were just hanging out with two of our best mates – and we also happened to be getting married! Even the little things such as texting us when we arrived in the US, to bringing snacks and drinks for us on the day (as they knew this was probably the last thing we’d think of on our wedding day!)

For two of us who generally don’t feel too at ease in front of a camera, they somehow managed to make it feel as if there weren’t even cameras there, being a part of our wedding day in such a natural and organic way. Nothing was too much trouble, and I have no doubt if it wasn’t for their presence on the best day of our lives, our perfect day in Yosemite would no way have been as perfect. We are so fortunate that not only did we get “the most stunning wedding photos I’ve ever seen” (according to multiple friends, family, work colleagues, randoms on the street etc..), but amazing memories of the most perfect and relaxed day in Yosemite, such was the way they made us feel. Their timeliness in communication, professionalism and ability to listen, and simply the outstanding quality of their work means we wouldn’t hesitate in recommending them to others. To those out there trawling through Google and Instagram for their perfect elopement photographers, the good news is you can stop looking. You’ve found them.

Is it even possible to feel like you’ve know someone forever, when really you just met? We can now say YES, that is possible, as that’s exactly what happened when Niel and I met Lauren and Allen on our wedding day! It didn't start there though, as we had multiple phone and email conversations with them prior to our wedding. From the very first conversation, we knew we made the right choice in hiring them as our adventure wedding photographers.

Lauren and Allen spent the entire day with not only us, but also our families and they fit right in with all of the jokes and laughter we all shared. Our families were extremely complimentary of the job they did, even prior to seeing the end results. This amazing duo, with their professionalism and their easy-going sense of humor, just has a way of making people around them feel comfortable and happy.

Niel and I aren’t fortunate where we can act ‘natural’ in front of the cameras, but with Lauren and Allen’s help and subtle direction, we were able to do just that. Even standing on top of Cathedral Rock with dozens of fellow hikers, they made us feel like Niel and I were the only ones on the rock.At one point, in the planning stages, Niel had asked me if we needed to decide the location of our first look. For someone who worries about everything and always has to have a plan, I surprisingly replied back to him with, “Lauren and Allen have it covered.” I actually had no idea what they had in store for our first look, but it didn’t matter, as I completely and whole-heartedly trusted that they would make it perfect. And they DEFINITELY did!Lauren and Allen didn’t just show up to take our pictures, but instead, they had a vision, thanks to the time and effort they put in beforehand to really get to know who we were as a couple and as individuals. That effort resulted in truly incredible photos and memories that tell a story about our love. On top of that, we appreciated their out of the box, spur of the moment ideas and experiments.If you hire Lauren and Allen, you will not only get amazing, once in a lifetime photos, but you’ll also experience two people who are genuinely dedicated to making the day about you. And, the best part, in the end, you’ll feel like you’ve gained two lifelong friends.
