Lauren McGlynn is a photographer based in Aberdeen, UK, and she friggen' rocks. She has this way of capturing little moments and making them look so epic. Take that engagement photo featured above — Epic, amaright?

Today I bring you more visual epicness from the wedding of Starla and Thomas from Lauren McGlynn Photography.


Starla and Thomas had one of the most heartwarmingly stunning weddings EVAR. Lauren tells me that they dubbed their wedding the “Golden Soul Love Shakedown.” And wait till you see the rest of the rest of Lauren's incredible images from the Shakedown…

While the term “photojournalism style wedding photography” is more in vogue at the moment, being a total photo geek I think there is a difference between photojournalism and documentary style. To me documentary photography means finding beauty in things or moments that would otherwise be considered banal.

Even her photos in an elevator look HAWT! And so do these ladies, I mean WOW!

With Lauren's wedding packages starting at just £1600, I'd say that's one hell of deal. And it's one anyone can take advantage of because Lauren has no problems traveling!

Comments on The Golden Soul Love Shakedown from Lauren McGlynn Photography

  1. I've been a fan of Lauren's photographs (and personality!) since before she got into the wedding game! She can see in-between moments for which few people have an eye. It's baffling to me! And she is an awesome woman, to boot!

  2. The photo of everyone walking towards the camera with the sun at their back – and the horn and guitar on the left – that's a good capture.

  3. YAY! Lauren is shooting my wedding and did my friend's too! I'm super excited to work with her!

  4. That wedding dress is just amazing. I love my wedding dress (also a silk brocade) but that just blows mine out of the water. Jealous!

  5. This is so beautiful – it literally is golden! So full of colour and warmth. Great photographer and stunning couple, it looks like loads of fun and I wish I could have been there!

  6. Wow! thanks, ya'll. It was such the perfect day and Lauren really captured the moment. I do just want to point out a couple of things.

    1. My Grandma made my dress!

    2. Lauren was an awesome photographer. She was natural about taking photos, people hardly noticed she was there! (which can be important). She is a creative photographer and has the ability to make you look good…really good. Plus, she totally was an off beat bride herself–so she loves taking photos of other OBBs! Working with her was a blast, she worked hard and didn't step on anybody's toes throughout the madness. Not to mention, the girl is a steal! Totally affordable for those who want high-quality photos but don't have a high-rolling budget.

    The photos–well, they speak for themselves.

  7. That is SUCH a beatuiful wedding. I especially love that last shot. The bride is so luminous, and she and the groom just… fit so well. I don't know how to explain it other than to say that they are a perfect fit. Absolutely gorgeous.

  8. Oh my gosh, this wedding was so beautiful. the bride and the groom look so happy together and you can see during the ceremony, EVERYBODY in the audience is crying! how sweet!

  9. GORGEOUS! I am going to be wearing a gold beaded dress for my big day, and am thrilled to see other ladies rocking this offbeat color choice! Beautiful wedding, photos, couple! congrats!

  10. starla, love your dress, but…

    your fascinator is to die for! <333 it to pieces!
