Meet Lauren Kirkbride:

A lot of milestones in my life have brought me to today - and I'm thankful for it. The highs, the lows, everything in between - it's made me the wedding and lifestyle photographer that I am. One that brings a sense of peace to whatever space and situation I’m shooting in. I love making sure each couple, family and child is in the moment - leaving stress and anxiety behind. Sure, beautiful scenery is one of my favorite settings, but I’ve learned over the years it’s the moments that really add up, and bring people back to the most significant days and life walks they are currently experiencing.

"Lauren was the one who created less stress and more excitement for us in the planning process and on the day of."

Lauren is such a genuine joy to work with! From day one, she made my partner and I feel comfortable, heard, respected, and at ease. We especially appreciated her flexibility and creativity in organizing our engagement session, her incredible ability to remember and connect with our family members and friends at the wedding, and the way she perfectly captured our special day without it ever feeling intrusive, formulaic, or awkward.

Katherine + Stuart

June 29 may have been one of the hottest days of the summer, but Katherine + Stuart made it through flawlessly-and of course, with a side of air-conditioning. They were married at the beautiful Basilica in downtown Minneapolis, followed by their reception at the stunning Woodhill Country Club. It was such an incredible day with these two, and all the details came together so beautifully.
