Each wedding is as unique as the couple in it; it is an experience as much as it is an event. A bride and groom spend a lot of time and effort planning their big day down to the smallest details, and I feel honored to be there to capture it all. From the boudoir and bride getting ready, to the emotional first look, to the breathtaking romantic moments of their special day... I am there to document the emotions, details and beautiful memories. I enjoy working in a natural light setting to achieve the soft, airy, romantic style. I photograph with a fine art approach by using both, a digital camera and a medium format film camera, which makes my work stand out. My photography focuses on capturing emotions, happiness and creating stylish imagery in the highest quality. I take time to get to know each couple that I work with to learn what it is that they expect, and make sure I go above and beyond to leave them satisfied. Most of my clients become life long friends and I feel blessed to document their families' wonderful life events. It is my greatest privilege to capture memories for my clients so they could relive them for many years to come. I love to combine my passions for art, photography, and travel to photograph unique moments and unique settings. My work has been featured in publications and magazines in the United States and in Europe.
As a wedding photographer, I love what I do. For me every wedding is a thrill and delight. I love capturing all the fleeting moments that mark the beginning of your life together. With a style that’s been described as quirky, elegant and fun, I blend classic portraiture with a photojournalistic eye. I realize that this is one of the most important days of your life. With this in mind I strive to discreetly document the love, laughter and celebration that will tell the story of your wedding day for years to come. Thank you so much for taking the time to visit my site. Contact me for additional information – I’d love to hear about your big day!
Natural. Unexpected. Artfully edgy. Telling a story, preserving a moment, creating art - it's what I'm all about. I employ a variety of approaches and an artful, relaxed style when observing the world and bringing out its authentic splendor. Chances are, you will never spend more time and money on the way you look and every detail of your wedding day. In addition to telling your whole wedding story with photojournalistic detail and accuracy, I'll also gently direct (more than pose) you in a way that brings all that beauty out in your images. You'll look both amazing and natural. Because your wedding celebrates the love and bond between you and your fiancé, your images will reflect that emotion and sentiment (so looking-at-the-camera-and-smiling shots are infrequent). Plus, we create these stunning images in a fun, relaxed setting, I help things move smoothly with a calm, thoughtful approach. The resulting experience and images will begin the legacy of your marriage. The three collections - Complete, Full, & Essential - are all-inclusive, with an engagement session, digital negatives, and custom-designed fine art coffee table book. Collections are also based on the "chapters" of your day, not hourly, from "getting ready" to "mid-dance." Lauren is the Lead Photographer at every wedding, and always has an assistant to help out. When the dress is packed, the food eaten, and the decor dismantled, your images are the one lasting element. Choosing your photographer is an important decision. I think finding the right personal fit is key. I'd love to meet for a quick consultation, typically at the studio in NE Minneapolis, to get a feel for your style, chat about your day, and hopefully give you one less thing to worry about in the planning process! Feel free to check out the latest work on the Photo Blog or Facebook page.

Our founder, Hana April Chughtai, has an extensive background in designing luxury wedding and events. After countless mornings spent with brides on their special day, Hana realized that most of the bridal parties were not wearing anything unique or special, even though photographers were capturing every moment as their got their hair and makeup done. The clothing didn’t show off their style, match the colors for their wedding, or even reflect the personality of the bride. Bminx launched to fill the void in the market. We offer high quality products that are also ecofriendly material. Trend-forward designs and long-lasting fashion you can wear past the day of the wedding. Fun and the perfect gift for your bridal party. Completely personalized and totally representative of you and your wedding. Best of all, with our giving back initiative, each purchase donates a T-shirt to a child in need, so you can feel good that your purchase is directly helping others. We are passionate about making sure children around the globe are aware of just how strong they are, and what they can overcome anything that comes in their path. We hope to make a difference to a child, One Shirt and One Smile at a time. Welcome to bminx!
