My Educational Philosophy

my approach & process

Eight years ago I decided I wanted to become a high school social studies teacher. I wanted to teach students the importance of wars and the impact they had on our lives today. While my classroom today looks much different, my thought process is still the same. The experiences we give our clients impacts not only the client’s life, but generations to come.  

I love sitting down with business creatives and mapping out a plan for success. While success will look different for each individual creative, it’s important to write down goals and action plans to ensure there will be greater impact on the lives we touch.  

As a former teacher, I can’t express how important continuing education is. Whether you’re spending time at conferences, trade shows, workshops, online courses, or one-on-one coaching with me, growing your knowledge to better your business is vital for success.

Community over Competition

resources for Canton, Ohio locals

Humans were genetically designed to be apart of a group; a tribe or community, if you will. However, entrepreneurs become so consumed with keeping their businesses running, they neglect their body, mind, and friendships. 

The goal of the Rising Tide Society is to bring all creatives together to celebrate the victories in business, and talk through the struggles. This community of creatives focuses on building friendships with peers instead of thriving to compete against one another. 
If you’re a business creative in the Canton area, come join our community! We meet once a month on the second Tuesday of the month. We would love to have you there with us.

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!

"From the moment I saw Loren's photos
 I was in love."

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 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!

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 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."

"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!"

"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!"
