Here are a few words from some of my amazing clients! :)
"We had a WONDERFUL experience from the moment we booked until we received our beautiful photos. She responded to messages immediately throughout the whole process.
She was so patient and gentle with our little girl. My husband and I never felt pressured or rushed.
Lauren is such a relaxed, clever photographer with a great sense of humor and who goes above and beyond to get the perfectly unique shot!!
We truly were blessed to be able to have Lauren to photograph our family & could not recommend Lauren enough."
"Lauren wasn’t just our wedding photographer; Lauren is the person who will capture all our big moments in life, now and into the future.
We wanted a snapshot of our lives for our wedding day, where we were still ourselves, relaxed and loving life and you can really see that in our photos.
We loved that Lauren was completely on board when we said we wanted some of our wedding photos taken in a truck depot, these are some of our favourite pictures!
It felt like we had a really great friend along for the ride with us, Lauren is relaxed, organised and was able to wrangle our bridal party and family for all those photos, whilst keeping it stress-free and fun.
We can’t wait to ask Lauren to photograph the next stage of our lives.

"My fiancé and I wanted to get some newborn photos taken of our daughter as she is our first child together and thought they would be memories we could treasure for years to come.
After seeing some of Lauren's previous work we had no hesitation in asking her to be our photographer and we were so happy she accepted. Choosing Lauren was definitely the best decision we made as she is not only such a lovely person but a true professional. She was very flexible and accommodating even with the late notice, and got back to us straight away once we had informed her of our little girls arrival.
Being first time parents we were obviously nervous and still getting into the routine of things on photo day, but Lauren was so welcoming and patient and made us feel more than comfortable once we arrived. Lauren is very thorough and particular with her work and this results in the most beautiful shots you could imagine. She was so good working with our baby, keeping her calm, safe and comfortable throughout the entire session.
Along with Lauren's advice and creative guidance there is an extensive range of props and backdrops you can use to create whatever theme or mood you are looking for. Processing time was extremely quick and communication with Lauren was easy as.
I could go on and on about how fantastic she is, but bottom line is I would definitely use Lauren again in the future. I have, and will continue to recommend Lauren to everyone I know so if you're looking for your photographer you've found her!"
"Lauren at Purely Taken. Photography captured every moment of our special day. She was with us from the hairdresser’s to the cake cutting and everything in between. Her friendly and relaxed attitude helped us relax on the day and she captured some stunning photos as a result.
We got some lovely shots with all of our extended family, and after the ceremony we travelled to Psyche Pumps where Lauren used the natural landscape to its full advantage.
We wanted casual, informal photos and that’s exactly what we received, no easy task with our two kids in the bridal party and a very warm day, but nothing was too hard for Lauren and each photo she took brings back a special memory of the day.
We absolutely love all of our photos and wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Lauren’s services for your wedding or special occasion. Thank you Lauren!"
"Lauren has captured my maternity photos and family photos.
I felt at ease and comfortable with Lauren, especially when she was taking intimate breastfeeding photos.
The photos are absolutely incredible! I have had so many people tell me how much they love the photos!
Lauren was professional yet easy going, flexible and so kind.
The precious moments that Lauren captured of my family are stunning and one of the best investments I have made to capture my little family. I was so impressed when I saw the photos.
I will treasure the images forever! Thank you so much Lauren!"
We had the pleasure of having Lauren as our photographer for our special day.
She was amazing to have, and did all we asked and much more before, during and after our day and we are so grateful for all she done.
Our photo's are beautiful, you captured our day perfectly and we can't thank you enough.
"We were fortunate enough to have Lauren agreed to photograph our wedding.
Lauren was exceptionally easy and pleasant to get along with and captured our wedding the way we wanted it :- in a natural way.
Lauren took the normal family photos, but also( and more importantly) got the photos of more personal and humorous moments that a lot of other photographers would not have captured, to which these images are our favourites.
Thank you Lauren for capturing our special day!"
"I emailed Lauren about 3-4 weeks after having our son and with such short notice she squeezed us in so we could capture our new bally blue bundle.
Being a first time Mum I felt instantly at ease with Lauren delicately handling our baby and watched in awe of her patience to get the perfect shot.
We were thrilled when we received the photos too.
Her personal touch and professionalism are of the highest standard."
"Lauren was just amazing from the start to finish of my Purely Taken. Photography experience!!
I needed some photos done for a fitness competition, I was a little iffy about having them done, and didn’t even know if I had left enough time to get a booking. A few weeks before I needed the pics done, I contacted Lauren for an appointment, not only did she slot me in, but she also did a mountain of research on poses we could do in my session, which I was so thankful for, as I had no idea how I needed to pose in ways that flattered me.
During the session Lauren was so particular with the finer details, I could tell she just wanted the photos to be perfect for me. She also made me feel so comfortable and at ease during the session, and was so willing to try different things.
At the end of the session I was so thankful for the experience with Lauren, it made a hard job easy!!
Thank you thank you thank Lauren, I was so happy with my photos!!"
