Certain people have an uncanny sense of what it takes for the best possible finished product, and Lauren is one of those people. Lauren’s photos PERFECTLY captured the wide range of emotion of the moment. From Christy’s surprise when she turned to see me on one knee to the pure joy that we both shared as it started to sink in. The happiness experienced by all is undeniable in Lauren’s photos and we’ll be able to look back at them and cherish the moment for the rest of our lives. Take it from a man with strong opinions, Lauren von Eckartsberg is a diamond in the rough when it comes to photographers for hire. If you want someone who goes the extra mile and delivers an unbelievable product, just stop what you’re doing and contact Lauren. I guarantee you won’t regret it!

I got my first professional shoot with Lauren and she is absolutely amazing!!! She made me feel very comfortable and was extremely kind when I was feeling insecure about myself! It was an awesome experience. I definitely recommend her! The final product came out so beautiful. I definitely see my self with different eyes now (much more handsome than I imagine :-)). If you’re looking for an amazing professional give her a call!!! You won’t regret!!!

Lauren helped capture my proposal to my now fiance, and we couldn’t be happier with the photos she gave us. In addition to being a great photographer, she is extremely professional and easy to work with. She was helpful not only in photographing the event, but also in planning it - she was available and responsive leading up to the event and went above and beyond to help in any way she could (she even got there early with me to help me set up and decide on the best angles). Also important, particularly for a proposal, is that Lauren made my fiance and I feel at ease. Even in such an intimate moment, we were very comfortable having her there with us and she made taking the photos a lot of fun. The photos Lauren takes are of excellent quality and I would highly recommend her for any occasion!

Lauren photographed my proposal in NYC. Being from out of town and first timers, Lauren helped with tips on locations and times. Everything went smooth from the beginning to end. Lauren was sincere and professional. All the pictures were captured that I hoped for, I highly recommend her services.
