The Wedding Declaration

my promise to you, sweet bride

I have the honor to capture and preserve the 
authentic joy and smiles of a wedding day. 
 I believe in beautiful wedding days but, more importantly, having a marriage that is even more beautiful - a marriage that begins a legacy that will inspire future children and grandchildren. 
A marriage like this is rooted in faith, promises, and laughter. 
Day one is merely the beginning of a countdown to the golden anniversary - fifty years of enduring, endless love. 
It’s my goal to capture even the most simplest of moments on 
a wedding day so that future generations can 
share in the joy of where it all began. 

My Philosophy

I love working with Brides who aspire to love deeper and harder than even the best Nicholas Sparks novels – the Brides who dream about the golden anniversary, 50 years. The LJ Bride desires to have a stress free wedding day and looks for guidance from me to make sure the pictures tell the best love story possible. The LJ Bride is totally into pretty details, beautiful gowns, and jaw dropping florals. But, she values what comes after that more – a loyal and loving marriage that is rooted in faith, loyalty, and laughter. She dreams of a marriage that weathers all the seasons together, hand in hand.

the LJ Bride's Favorite Things

next up

what Loren's brides are saying

01

wheat fields

 The LJ Bride is humble and hardworking. She admires the golden simplicity of a wheatfield and craves to be outdoors

02

garden roses

She’s elegant and patient just like the Garden Rose. The LJ Bride is full of joy and brings a smile to everyone’s face

03

lazy sundays

She can be the life of a party on Saturday, but the LJ Bride’s favorite day of the week is the lazy Sunday. Curled up on the couch with her hubby by her side is better than any night out

04

messy buns

Any girl can pull off big wavy curls, but it takes a special kind of beautiful to pull off a messy bun. The LJ Bride can rock that bun with a sweatshirt and a pair of pearl earrings any day.

05

small towns

Friendly and kind. Welcoming and caring. A LJ Bride enjoys being in the small towns where she feels like she can make the biggest impact

Loren is simply AMAZING, her work, her personality, her organizational skills- everything about her is just amazing! I was very picky about our wedding photographer and from the moment I saw Lorens photos I was in love, then we met her and we were completely sold. She really takes the time to get to know her couples and makes you feel comfortable. I remember the first time we talked, Loren said "I want you to be like 'YES OUR PHOTOGRAPHER'S HERE' and excited on your wedding day," and we totally were. After our engagement photos, my husband and I truly couldn't wait to spend the day with Loren again. And no surprise, our photos turned out stunning. I highly recommend Loren for your special day!

 I was in love."

Mandi

Photography was very important to us as we approached our wedding, and we were thrilled with our choice in Loren. She was absolutely wonderful to work with. Her complimentary engagement session allowed us to get comfortable with her, and allowed her to get to know us as a couple. Her work is absolutely stunning and we're so happy that we will have these photos to remember our wedding day by. She is organized, efficient, and has such enthusiasm for her couples. She is accommodating and able to go with the flow on the always hectic wedding day.

"...We were thrilled with our choice in Loren."

Elana

We are absolutely thrilled with our decision to go with Loren as our wedding photographer. Your wedding day is such a special day, and we felt that quality photographs were an important part of our planning. Loren was very easy to work with - so warm and accommodating, and despite her growing business and family, she makes each couple feel special with an excited energy to capture your special day just the way you want it. The engagement session allowed us to get to know her working style and allowed her to get to know us as a couple. She's very organized and efficient, able to go with the wedding day flow, and her assistant Courtney did a fantastic job as well. Her blog posts and gallery are always available quickly. We are highly satisfied with Loren's work and we would absolutely recommend her to anyone still looking for a wedding photographer!

Stephannie

From the very beginning when we shot our mini session, to the end when I received my wedding album, and everything in between - working with Loren has been a dream. I could not be happier with our decision to choose Loren as our wedding photographer. She made the whole process fun and easy for me. All of my images are absolutely beautiful and I have gotten so many compliments on how amazing they look. I need more wall space to hang all of the prints I have ordered! I can’t get enough of them. Loren, thank you from the bottom of my heart for giving me the most amazing experience. I will cherish these photos for the rest of my life!

Loren captured every moment of our rustic wedding beautifully! I'm constantly getting compliments on my wedding photos. My family and friends have told me that they look like they belong in a magazine and I couldn't agree more! Loren is more than just an amazing photographer, she is a friend, who kept our wedding day stress free with her guidance. Not even two weeks after our wedding, we received our wedding photos and I can't stop looking at them and reliving that beautiful day, that I still can't believe was MY WEDDING! Thank you, Loren, you're the best!!

"Loren is more than just an amazing photographer, she is a friend..."

Karen

Loren was absolutely fantastic! From the first consultation to the wedding day, she was there to help guide my fiancé and I along through the wedding process seamlessly. She provided so much comfort and relief in knowing things were going to be just perfect. And it was just that, perfect! She captured our picture perfect day in the most incredible way. She makes you feel at ease and allows you to truly be yourself in front of the camera and it shows. Our photos were so amazing; we practically 'favorited' them all! People have asked me so many times already, 'Who shot your wedding photos?' I proudly tell them Loren Jackson Photography. She is simply the best!

"She provided so much comfort and relief in knowing things were going to be just perfect."

Michele

"One of the things that sets her apart from other photographers is that she takes time to get to know her bride and groom that she is shooting for and I think that is one thing that makes the pictures she takes so amazing because we (my husband and I) both felt super comfortable around her. I am so pleased with how our pictures turned out and know that years from now I can relive our wedding day because of them!"

"Loren is just flat out amazing and I would choose her again a million times over."

Lyndsey

"After meeting with her for the first time to talk about what we wanted out of our engagement and wedding pictures, there was no doubt in our minds that Loren was the one for us. I am constantly finding myself looking back at our wedding photos, mesmerized by all the beauty and love that she was able to capture. I couldn't be more thankful to Loren for being a spot-on photographer and giving us pictures that we will cherish forever. I highly recommend Loren because she is the kind of photographer that will take the time to get to know you as a couple and will work her hardest to make your memories and pictures ones to remember."

"Loren was the whole package... who knew I would get a photographer and friend as well!"

Jana

Danielle

"We decided to go with Loren after seeing pictures from a friends wedding and it was one of the best wedding decisions we made! Loren is professional, friendly, can gather everyone together quickly for a group photo, and can get a ton of great shots in a matter of minutes. It rained the whole day during our wedding, but that did not stop Loren from getting wonderful photos of us. The BEST thing about Loren, is that she will have sneak peek pictures ready for you within a few days and had all of my wedding photos to me in less than two weeks!"

"I am so happy we chose Loren Jackson Photography to capture our wedding day for us!"

Frequently Asked Questions

from Loren's brides

Brides will spend on average about $3,800 dollars. This includes eight hours of wedding day coverage, engagement session, online gallery, and the beautiful heirloom album.

How much, on average, does a bride spend on her wedding experience with Loren Jackson Photography?

Simple answer. YES! In this digital age, everyone wants their digital photos including myself! As a former Bride, I was SPOILED with my digitals and use them ALL the time on social media. Even made a board with some of my favorites! And the best part, you receive your digitals in a custom gallery! 

Do I receive digital files with my collection?

Here's another simple answer, with a more complex explanation. No. And here's why. In my first year doing weddings, I would let a Bride change things in her collection. I thought it was a win-win. What I didn't realize was that it was a lose-lose. The engagement session is a relationship builder for you, your fiancé, and I. I learn the best way to pose you, I learn that you have a good side, I learn that you love forehead kisses more than I do. And most of all, YOU realize you made the best decision hiring me to shoot your wedding.

I had a friend take our engagement photos. Is there a credit towards our collection?

I'm a impatient person, and while I wish I could give you your Wedding photos the very next day, I'm also not super woman. But I can also promise you that you won't have to wait six months for your memories, as well. So, that being said, my contract says 4-6 weeks. Depending on the season and how many weddings and engagement sessions I have to edit, there's a HUGE possibility that you won't even wait three weeks

How soon can I expect my wedding photos?

I first schedule a consultation with all inquiring couples. We'll sit down, get to know one another, and I'll walk you through the collections, PASS, and albums. I take some basic information from you (names, numbers, addresses, venue locations, etc). After our meeting, I'll send you your contract and invoice for wedding photography services electronically! It's super easy to sign the contract, you just use your mouse, or your finger if you're on a laptop or phone. Then you have seven business days for me to receive your retainer. The retainer is $1000, and is nonrefundable and nontransferable.

How do I secure my date with you?

Oh my goodness! OF COURSE! Timelines are super important for your wedding day, and can be stressful if you don't know where to begin. Anywhere from 4-6 weeks before the wedding we'll sit down together, either in person or on the phone, and work on your timeline. When planning the start time of your ceremony, keep in mind what time the sun sets. If you're having a winter wedding, and not doing a first look, we could be limited with natural light for your portraits after the ceremony.

I don't know where to start with my wedding timeline. Can you help me with that?

First and foremost, you can expect a calm person in your world of hectic. You can expect another Bridesmaid. Someone to help lace your dress, bustle your dress, keep track of your bouquet, and make sure your groomsmen are in line. You can expect direction and order. It is my job to not only take beautiful photos of your perfect day, but to also make sure you are as much of a stress-free bride as possible.

What can we expect out of you on our wedding day?

The final balance is due 30 days before the wedding.
