BEST. PHOTOGRAPHERS. EVER. I have put a lot of thought into a review for Jamie and Lauren, its just hard to put into words how much I cherish our wedding photos and Jamie and Lauren for being such AMAZING PEOPLE!! Looking back on my wedding day, there were a few things that I would have changed... maybe ivory wasn't really my color, our wedding party could have been smaller, etc. But I WILL NEVER second guess my choice in wedding photographers! From the beginning, I loved their site and all of their pictures on The Knot. I set up an appointment with them and two other photographers on the same day (I work out of town so I needed to move quickly). I sat down with Lauren and Jamie for coffee on a Friday morning. It was like seeing friends that I hadn't seen in years, and we just met. They made me feel so comfortable with them, they gave me great ideas, they were literally up for everything (including traveling to Portland to take our engagement pictures). At the end of coffee, I canceled my other appointments and sent in the deposit. It just didn't get any better than what was sitting right in front of me! At the time, I was working in Portland, and it just so happened that Jamie and Lauren were photographing a wedding there, so they offered to take our pictures there (an idea that I LOVED!). Little did we all know that it was going to be 20 degrees and raining- we were all freezing and drenched, but everyone was smiling and laughing the entire time. J&L were such great sports about it. Anyways, months went by and our wedding is FINALLY HERE! I am knee deep in work, wedding details, etc - and I am in full panic mode! J&L called the week of the wedding to finalize some details and they could tell I was stressed. I don't remember what was said exactly but they made me feel a million times better, which was more than my family or fiance had been able to do at the time. I left the conversation so at ease - like... they are handling this, and I don't have to! A few days later and it's WEDDING DAY!!! They made the whole day perfect! The videographer was MIA, they found him. The groomsmen were a little wild, they (nicely) put them in line, one of the bridesmaids needed to pump and Lauren offered her car and then to drive her when she hadn't finished. LONG STROY SHORT... If you are looking for amazing photos, you can obviously see that they take the most amazing photos. But there are a lot of photographers out there that also take amazing photos. If you want your wedding day to run smoothly, if you want your guests and wedding party to come up to you and tell you how wonderful and sweet your photographers are, if you want your family to tell you that your wedding pictures look like they are from a magazine, if you want the WHOLE PACKAGE wedding photographer... go with Jamie and Lauren. If you made it to the end of this review, I congratulate you! Good luck on your wedding. I know you're in good hands!

Lauren and Jamie are not only amazing people but incredible professionals to work with!! We had our engagement photos taken with them and we originally had a different wedding photographer; we were absolutely blown away by their work that we chose to cancel our contract with our original photographer and switch to Eichar Photography for our wedding! From incredible and fast communication with clients, to their friendliness, to their love and passion for their careers, to being comfortable with them instantly when shooting our engagement photos, anyone would be silly not to choose this amazing couple!! Our wedding was in Indiana and we loved them so much that we wanted them to travel from St. Louis, Missouri to our wedding! Their website is breathtaking and their photos captured our wedding and engagement perfectly! Eichar Photography was the best vendor we have EVER worked with and the best part of our wedding!!!!

We could not have asked for better wedding photographers. Jamie and Lauren are talented, friendly, and hard working, and our wedding photos are evidence of all of that. On our wedding day, it rained on and off and Jamie and Lauren kept tabs with a surprisingly accurate minute-by-minute weather forecast. After it rained on the seats right before the ceremony, they brought beach towels from their car and helped dry everything off. We honestly barely noticed that they were there throughout the ceremony and reception, but they caught everything we could have wanted and more. The end result was a good mix of classic and artistic photos that we absolutely adore and will treasure forever. They really captured what made our day ours and all of the love that we have for each other and our friends and families.

The photos are SOOOOO GOOD! The BEST. We love all of them. I'm so impressed you were able to work with the difficult lighting, weather, and chaos of the weekend. You guys are awesome. When we found your work online, we knew immediately that you guys have a special ability to capture the right moments and tell a story with each of your photos. We can't express how happy we are that you were also able to bring that amazing eye and talent in your pictures of our wedding weekend!

Jamie and Lauren are incredibly talented and an absolute joy to work with. From our first conversation, through the months of planning before our wedding, to the big day itself, this dynamic duo consistently put us at ease with their warmth and professionalism. The result is a series of authentic, joyful moments from our wedding day, captured expertly and with an artistic eye. We are beyond pleased with our photos and had such a great time getting to know Lauren and Jamie throughout the past few months. A note: we live in California, so the Eichars traveled to our wedding. Despite the fact that they hadn't photographed at our venue before, they somehow found all of the best spots for lighting and scenery to take couple and group photos; I had been 5 times and still wouldn't have come up with these spots. Hire these two, and put your full trust in them -- they're truly amazing.

Lauren and Jamie photographed our wedding this July up in Vermont. They were extremely accommodating - not only did they travel to Vermont from St. Louis, but they shot 3 separate ceremonies over two days. In addition, they were both extremely nice, very professional, and very warm. After working with them for two days, I felt like I had known them my whole lives. They turned around our photos very quickly after the fact, giving us over 1000 edited photos in a few weeks. I'm not sure how they turned the photos around so quickly, but they certainly did not skimp on quality to do so. The pictures were beautiful and really captured all of the special moments we wanted. I honestly have nothing bad to say about the experience working with Lauren and Jamie. Everything turned out perfectly and I can't imagine having worked with other photographers.

These pictures are just... they're incredible. They feel like what the day felt like... I don't even have words. I suppose the best way to describe it would be that, after David and I looked at the pictures, he said, "Now I understand why it cost so much. I'm glad you put your foot down." The two of you did so much justice to our day... you even made some of the mundane things seem beautiful. I know I'm just rambling now, but suffice it to say that we will be forever grateful that you were part of our day.
