We hired Lauren as our photographer for our wedding in the winter of 2014, and in addition we completed an engagement shoot with her earlier in the year. Our photos turned out more beautiful than we ever could have imagined, and I especially appreciated Lauren’s ability to capture candid shots which were able to depict the overall feeling of the day. I found Lauren to be very flexible and creative, we were able to take photos in a variety of different places and she had a lot of great ideas. In addition, she is very easy going and has the ability to make you feel comfortable, which was very important to me. I highly recommend Lauren for any wedding or engagement photos, you will be blown away with her work.

Thank you Lauren for the memories to last a lifetime!”

”Dear Lauren, You are an amazing photographer and we are so grateful for your efforts at our wedding. You are so flexible, fun, and even know how to make awkward couples like ourselves feel comfortable. Thank you for always going above and beyond! Best regards!

Lauren was referred to us by a friend in the photography/graphic design industry, so right away I was confident in her technical skills. What Nicholas and I liked best about working with her though was her comfortable, laid back - but still professional, style. She got back to me quickly to my email messages and was really accommodating when we shifted the times for our wedding. My daughter also had a blast playing model at our engagement shoot. The best part though was that the photos were awesome! None of that overly posed stuff...natural and a but quirky...just like we wanted.

Lauren Garbutt Photography has been involved in many of my projects and events over the last 5+ years. I can’t speak highly enough about her work. It’s always tasteful and timeless, and Lauren is a pleasure to work with. She’s professional, courteous, accommodating, and delivers high-quality, creative photos every time. Whenever I need promotional and/or special event photography, Lauren is the person I call. That’s all there is to it.
— Sarah Beatty,
A huge thank you for everything!! We couldn’t be happier with our engagement and wedding photos, you did an amazing job at beautifully capturing our big day and we couldn’t be more pleased. You have great talent and made everyone feel so comfortable and laid back, we still have guests commenting on how awesome you are and how great our photos look! It was great getting to know you and we hope to work with you again in the future!

Much thanks.

We wanted to thank you for being a part of our wedding activities this summer. Your level of professionalism, high level of skill and great personality fit perfectly with what we wanted in a wedding photographer.

It was great to be able to sit down with you weeks before the big day and go over what we wanted and what you offered. You listened and incorporated our ideas perfectly into your pictures. Being able to use sparklers to write things in photos was something we both really wanted to do, and your patience with our wedding party, even half way through the reception, was unending.

We can’t put into words how happy we are with your services, and you gave us a great package of pictures to remember the best day of our lives.

Thank you so very much.

Just watched the slideshow. I’m crying. It’s great. You’re great. Everying is wonderful. Thank you. So much.” - Text after seeing the photos for the first time.

Lauren is an amazing photographer. When I look at the pictures of our special day, I can feel the emotion in them and I’ve never felt so beautiful. She went with the flow of the group during the family and friend’s photos and captured some special moments that I know will be treasured by our family for years to come.

To our friend, and amazing photographer,

Lauren thank you so much for all the hard work and dedication you put into making our wedding experience so fun. Right from our engagement shoot, to the end of our reception, our pictures were everything we wanted them to be. You captured our day, our friends, our family, as well as us as a couple perfectly. You are so charming and fun to work with, we couldn’t have asked for a better photographer.

Thank you again and again.

Lauren shot our wedding in the fall of 2011 and did an amazing job! Very pleasant and easy to work with, she really captured our day beautifully. I couldn’t have asked for a better photographer that day, I highly recommend Lauren, she will exceed your expectations!

Lauren has been doing photo shoots for us for years including our wedding photos this past September and we couldn’t be happier. She is a great person to work with. Her professionalism and talent really stand out and our photos always turn out amazing!

I have had the pleasure of working with Lauren Garbutt on a number of occasions. I hired her to do some promo shots for my DJ business and not only were the photos striking, they have garnered a ton of attention on social media. Eventually one of the shots was featured in an article about The Disco Gallery in Business Niagara. My wife and I also hired Lauren to do a number of family photos after our daughter was born. Lauren is fun and has a good eye and great ideas while being very easy to work with. I highly recommend this talented young photographer!
— Marinko Jareb,
We had the privilege of having the very talented photographer Lauren Garbutt as our wedding photographer this past July. We had an outdoor wedding at the botanical gardens in Niagara Falls and also had the biggest rainstorm ever during our ceremony.

From what would normally be a sad event to happen on your big day, Lauren captured some of our favorite photographs. She also went out of her way to help accommodate us by arranging another photo day for my husband, infant son and I to return to the gardens and get the photos we really wanted. Lauren is very hard working, professional and accommodating and we get thank her enough for all her beautiful hard work.
— Rob & Ashlee

Thank you so much for the most excellent family photos. The creativity, as well as capturing the natural and honest interactions between the three of us, exemplifies the talent you have. Our photos have been praised and talked about by our friends, whom we don’t hesitate to recommend you to for any of their photography needs. We can’t wait until we can capture some more moments with you in the future. Thanks for the beautiful pictures and the fun time we all had taking them!
