    We are so thankful to have found Lauren for our engagement & wedding day photography. She is truly an artist at what she does, and is able to capture the moment beautifully. Throughout the entire process leading up to the big day, Lauren was always quick to respond to any concerns or questions and was so accommodating. The entire wedding day photography went so smoothly, and Lauren & her partner were professional and prompt. Our guests could not stop complimenting our sneak peak photos & we are so excited to start framing the portraits! Laurens style is absolutely beautiful and is exactly what we were looking for. Thank you a million!!

    A dream photographer

    I cannot tell you how much we love Lauren and her photography. For one, she’s awesome as a person! She makes you feel comfortable and provides you direction in a really easy way so you get quality photos without feeling forced or uncomfortable. Her photography was incredible, her prices are more than fair, and she is so flexible and kind. Neither myself or my husband had ever had our photos taken by a professional and you’d never be able to tell. Invest in good photography for your wedding, you will not regret it. Also, she gets bonus points for having a snuggly puppy at her studio.

    AMAZING wedding pics (pet friendly too!)

    Lauren has shot our engagement, ceremony, and will be shooting our reception next year too! We couldn't have been happier with both our engagement and ceremony galleries, both of which include some stunning portraits of me, my husband, and our dog! Perfect blend of posed and candid shots, and is so great at making anyone feel comfortable in front of the camera. LOVE what we've seen so far, can't wait for next year's party pics! THANK YOU LAUREN!

    Best photographer in the business!

    Lauren’s work is absolutely exquisite. It was an absolute dream having Lauren shoot our wedding day. She was professional, knowledgeable every step of the way, and a pleasure to work with. The ability she has to capture the emotion of the moment in a photograph is incredible. My husband is nervous to have photos taken but with Lauren’s direction the entire process was so enjoyable and it stands out as a favourite moment of the entire wedding event for both of us. I cannot recommend Lauren Garbutt Photography enough, so talented!

    Thank you so much Kaitlyn! I had such a great time celebrating your marriage and I'm so glad you like the photos. Thank you so much for your kind words! I love hearing back from my couples!

    My husband and I were so impressed with Lauren's work. She was flexible the entire time, as we changed our minds back and forth on our photo locations. Her calm, confident nature put our minds at ease the whole day. She calmly directed family well to ensure great photos were taken and everyone still felt relaxed. We love the photos Lauren took and will treasure them forever.

    Lauren Garbutt Photography's reply:

    Thank you so much for your kind words! I'm so happy that I was able to celebrate with you both and I'm honoured that I was able to be present for your beautiful wedding day

    Lauren is a dream to work with!

    Lauren shot our wedding in May 2016 at Ball's Falls Conservation Area. She was recommended to me by a photographer friend, and I'm glad she was. Lauren is extremely friendly and professional, and made us feel at ease during the entire process. We had our engagement shot only a week prior to the wedding date, so it was a good test run for the wedding day. We wanted casual and more candid photography and she delivered! We are thrilled with all our wedding photos and love the 'concert light' style for the dance photos. I always recommend Lauren to friends (and strangers on community pages!). If I had to do it all over again, I would chose Lauren - no question about it!

    Amazing! She is really great!

    We simply loved Lauren. Our wedding was in the middle of pandemic in January, super small and she was so calm and super professional, she even recommended a nice location in Niagara Falls and took amazing pictures, haven't been able to leave a review in google but I really recommend her hands down. Thank you Lauren!

    Lauren Garbutt Photography's reply:

    Thank you so much for the kind words Andrea!!! I loved shooting with you and I'm so happy you could still get married despite everything happening.

    Congrats again and I hope can cross paths again one day!

    Amazing photographer!

    Lauren was amazing for both the engagement shoot and the wedding day. She came out in some crazy weather and took amazing photos for our engagement shoot. We have some of the wedding photos back and they are beautiful and captured a lot of emotion in them. She was even able to accommodate us in having a unique photo booth for the day of (something she had never done before) but made it happen and we cannot hear enough great things from our guests. She remembered a lot of small details that we had mentioned to her early in the process and made sure we took some photos that were truly special to me and my wife.

    We would both recommend Lauren to anyone getting married. She was fun to work with, accommodating, and made the day that much more special.

    Lauren Garbutt Photography's reply:

    Thank you so much Daniel!

    It was such an honour to celebrate with you both and I'm so happy you chose me to document your day for you! I was more than happy to go above and beyond for you both and make sure we made it all happen! You were so great for work with and I'm so glad I got to know the both of you. Thank you again!

    Professional and fun

    Lauren is absolutely amazing, she is very easy and comfortable to work with. Our sample pictures are beautiful and we are so excited to see the rest from our wedding. Our engagement photos were also stunning and we had so many compliments. We would highly recommend her.
