Besides death and taxes, change is one of the few inevitable things in life… it doesn’t matter if you’re happy or miserable with the way things are currently… eventually, it comes. 2014 was a year of changes for Lauren Brimhall Photography. We moved across the country AGAIN, had a second child, renovated a house, and somewhere along the way our photography evolved by leaps and bounds.

This post is intended to take pause for a moment and acknowledge this past year, at least in terms of photography. We have been inspired by so many of the amazing photographers at, and let that inspiration be our guide to producing even more impactful and journalistic work.

We shot upwards of 30 weddings in total, starting with Charlie and Alexis’ Ballroom at the Ben Winter wedding.


Next up was Jay and Julie’s Plymouth Country Club Wedding, second shot for Jim Heine in April…


…followed by Kristin and Rex at the Manor House.


We lucked out with another great couple in Erica and Davin, who tied the knot at the Pines at Genesee in June.

Next we second shot Kim and Rob for Robinson Usagani at the Wild Basin Lodge…


 Leandra and Vitali had some really nice portraits at the Luzerne County Courthouse Wedding


Kiah and Kyle were up next… I’ll certainly miss having Red Rocks in my backyard!


Our first Cambodian Wedding in July celebrating Anny and Khamlek was a grand slam!


Key and Maki’s home barn wedding was really unique, with some unexpected guests poking their heads (or butts) in at random times during the event.HorsesAss-2Colorado_Barn_Wedding-56

Mid July saw us back in Crested Butte for Kasey and Joel’s gorgeous mountain wedding.

 Lindsey and Randy rocked our worlds when they were willing to do almost anything for a portrait, and the moments spoke for themselves.

Nikki and Bill had grandmas for flower girls and tossed their own pizza dough at the reception… need I say more?

Lindsi and Ryan quite literally won the award for best FOB ever at their Mt. Princeton Hot Springs Wedding.

My Favorite shot from Kyra and Jon came from second shooter Jim Heine.

Fallen_Tree_Farm_Wedding-21Indian weddings almost always result in some of my favorite shots of the year, and Smriti and Sandeep’s Sheraton Valley Forge Wedding was no exception!


By Mandy and Tri’s 21-hour Vietnamese Wedding Day, I was pretty darn pregnant, but not slowing down!


Sean and I shot Jackie and Mike’s National Park Restaurant Wedding on our very own five-year anniversary, and the highlight of my night was the cake cutting, when the couple gave Sean a sweet, sweet surprise!


Next up was Tracie and Steve at the Curtis Hotel in Denver followed by Michelle and Rob at our favorite Baltimore hot spot, the Gramercy Mansion!


We discovered a new favorite venue in Bethlehem in the Artsquest Center at Steelstacks in Katie and Tom’s Wedding.


Finished out the year with our first California wedding; Dora and Martin’s super special Pala Mesa Resort affair.


Looking forward to an equally awesome, and hopefully slightly more settled 2015 in our new State of New Jersey!
