"I’ve been thinking about how to write this review for way too long, and I finally realized it’s because every time I look back on my wedding photos or video, or think about my entire experience with WATB, I’m left speechless. Not only are Lauren and Jared the kindest, most thoughtful humans, but their work is truly incredible. They say a picture is worth a thousand words, but what WATB capture through their lenses say a million. What they gave my husband and I is so much more than just images- they gave us moments in time filled with emotion, personality, and everything I want to vividly remember about my wedding day 60 years from now. I truly cannot say enough good things about them and I promise that you will cherish what their talents can give you for years and years to come- we certainly will!!! 20/10 would recommend!"
"If you have the pleasure of working with Lauren & Jared, DO IT. BOOK THEM NOW. We simply cannot recommend them enough. Working with the Bowsers was a huge highlight to our wedding. From our effortless and fun engagement session to canceling our wedding and eloping last minute, they were here for us every step of the way always answering questions and making sure we were supported. And our photos and video... nothing short of incredible. We had booked video for our large wedding and were debating having it for our 15 person elopement and let me tell you, if you too are debating, I highly recommend booking. This video is something we will cherish for the rest of our lives. I think we have watched it every single day since getting it back and we still tear up when we press play. We feel so honored to have been able to work with Lauren & Jared and cannot wait for them to shoot our party come 2021. Here's to becoming best friends with your vendors! Isn't that the best?"
"To those reading this, I promise you the best investment and best thing you can do for your big day is to hire Lauren & Jared. Not only were they so responsive and helpful, but they are literally the best in the game. Like, have you seen their work?! My wedding photos are more than I’ve ever dreamed of and the compliments I’ve gotten on them are out of this world. Not to mention, they are the sweetest couple you’ll ever meet. Lauren & Jared highlighted so much love, fun and genuine feelings in our photos that we will cherish forever, and most importantly, they made us look like ourselves. They captured our love like no other and we are forever indebted to them."
"Hiring a photographer for your big day can be very stressful. I really wanted someone who knew how to capture our day without making it come across “cheesy” or disingenuous. Lauren truly has a gift. I loved her style and her ability to make very sincere moments come across in her photos. Everything she captures is authentic.... and yes she will make sure you look beautiful in it all. (She knew good sides and was sensitive to what a bride could be self conscious of) She’s awesome. Videography. Ok I was 100 percent against having a video done. I cringed at every mushy, forced kiss and obviously uncomfortable groom in the fb wedding videos I’d seen. My sister convinced me to just be open to watch one of The Bowsers videos. So I did. Then I watched like 10. Every single one was PERFECT. Not an ounce of “cringe” or obnoxious star gazing.... just the right amount. The Bowsers are professionals. They’ve done this. There is nothing you will have to question by your wedding day. I truly don’t think we would’ve experienced the level of professionalism we did with any other options. I am completely convinced that having them come to Sweden was way more simple than hiring a Swedish photographer. All in all, we were extremely happy and grateful that the Bowsers could record our special day. We’ll have the memories forever. They were worth every penny and don’t have any regrets! Tack sa mycket ! Thank you so much!"
"I don’t even know where to start with how wonderful Lauren was to work with. First, through some unpredictable COVID-19 circumstances, my originally booked photographer was unable to shoot our wedding (which we found out one month prior to the big day). Hoping and praying that I could find someone we wanted, I reached out thinking it would be unlikely Lauren would be available and but by the grace of God she was and everything and could not have been more perfect. Lauren quickly jumped in, established a plan, and even though we did not meet until my husband and I’s wedding day, she quickly made us feel comfortable and at ease as she captured the most beautiful pictures. I appreciate her style of capturing the moments, the people and all the beautiful emotion wrapped up in them. It’s an art and we are so thankful we have these pictures to look back on the rest of our lives! Lauren was quick, professional and so thoughtful, even down to the sweet package she sent us with prints from our day. I can’t recommend her services enough, my only regret would be not doing a video with them as well!"
"I cannot recommend Lauren and Jared enough! Hiring them was the best decision we made during the wedding planning process. From our very first email to our wedding day, they were the easiest people to work with. We met at our engagement shoot and I remember being so nervous thinking I was going to be awkward behind the camera but Lauren made us feel so comfortable. We got our photos less than a week later (no idea how she does it) and we were amazed at her work! Due to some health concerns involving my dad, we decided to do a private ceremony three weeks prior to our original wedding date. When we told Lauren what was going on, she assured us they would be there for us however that looked. In a very stressful and emotional time, I remember feeling so supported by them. They truly care deeply about their couples. We did a private ceremony and kept our original date as the reception. Lauren and Jared were there for both days and I can’t put into words the joy the photos and video brings me every time I look at them. I’ve watched the video every day since we got it and honestly probably will every day for the rest of my life. The Bowsers are a must at your wedding. If you have the opportunity to book them, DO IT NOW. I look forward to them photographing all milestones to come. They truly are the best!"
"I can't even put into words how positive of an experience we had with Lauren and Jared. To start our relationship, communication and all transactions were extremely easy. Then we met Lauren for our engagement pictures - the most relaxing human in the whole world at a time you are extremely self-conscious! I remember leaving that shoot thinking I ruined every photo. And then 3 days later (convinced Lauren doesn't sleep), I got back the most amazing set of pictures from our session... memories and photos I will cherish forever! She even put up with us lugging our puppy around for pics :) After that, I knew we had made the right decision, but somehow, Lauren and Jared managed to raise the bar even more for our wedding weekend. After months of making decisions and pointing others in directions, I have never felt so much relief than working with them on my wedding day. They have such a vision for the whole event, how to catch the big and little things alike, and it was downright refreshing to be told what to do by masters of their craft. We now have another set of memories - both photos and a video that brings tears to my eyes every time - and will cherish them for the rest of our lives. I look forward to the Bowsers photographing all the milestones to come and would mark this decision down as one of my best throughout my entire wedding planning process."
"These two are doing what they were BORN to do. The presence of Lauren and Jared on our wedding day was so comforting, knowing the level of skill and expertise they both embody. They captured every part of the day, making it a reality to relive our wedding day over and over! It is incredible how fast the day goes by, and Lauren and Jared preserved it for my husband and I for a lifetime! I am obsessed with these two not only as a couple, but as true artists and perfectionists in their work. They are INCREDIBLE to work with and will forever hold a special place in our heart and lives. So thankful for these two!"
"You NEED Lauren and Jared. I cannot recommend them enough! They are incredibly talented — I've truthfully never seen better work in my life — and they just so happen to be amazing people too. They made me and my husband feel completely comfortable in front of a camera. We used the Bowsers for our engagement session and wedding day and were always relaxed and had fun, which really showed in our photos and video. You feel as though you're just hanging out with really talented friends. They're organized, professional, and work well together and with other vendors. Their work is brilliant; they are undoubtedly experts in their craft. The pictures still portray you, just the best version of you. The video I will watch a million times in my life, I'm sure. It's perfection. I am so grateful that we have these moments captured so perfectly for the rest of time. My husband and I agreed early on that we would prioritize photography and videography and that these would likely be the largest portion of our wedding budget. If we had known the pictures and video we would receive, we would have confidently paid anything —they are priceless. Thank you Lauren and Jared!"
