Photography and videography are a fantastic challenge and adventure. Snapping a pretty picture takes some skill, but our goal is to create images that people can connect with, images that capture their personalities. We take our time with clients, getting to know them, exploring fun areas, and together we create a narrative through photos and video. People often share that they feel nervous or awkward about being photographed- but trust us, we'll have fun, and pretty soon you'll surprise yourself!
Lauren: I have always loved photography and video- I inherited it from my mother, who taught me so much of what I know (namely: always try new angles, genuine smiles make for the best photos, be aware of the background/framing). I also learned my habit of smiling behind the camera from her. My photography business began while studying fine art and portrait photography in 2003. I majored in Fine Art Photography (and Psychology) at Smith College, where I refined my darkroom skills, learned how to use the earliest kinds of cameras, learned studio lighting, and began working with digital. While photography was my first craft, I think wedding video adds a very special aspect, as you see more of the movements, the gestures, and the rhythm of the day.
Crista: I started working in wedding videography in 2004 and have been hooked ever since. Every wedding is unique, and helping to capture the emotional and special parts of the day is always a fun and exciting adventure. Photos and videos are the memories that last a lifetime, and my goal is to assist you in making your day easy by documenting all of you and your family's important moments without being obtrusive.
Piper: My love for video began in nature videography. I love writing music, scripts, and capturing the natural beauty in the word. Thus, it was a natural step into wedding videography for me, as those days are filled with beauty and love. I aim to capture the natural moments, quiet moments, and loud moments, and create an all encompassing video portrait of your day.

OUR PRESENCE ON YOUR BIG DAY:
Every single wedding, party, or event we have worked, at least one guest has approached us saying "I just want to let you know that you are really, really good photographers." After years of hearing this and not knowing what people are referring to exactly (because these are usually aunts/uncles of the bride and they can't see the images yet) I started collecting a little more data. Here are a couple of my favorites:
"The best way I can describe it is, you're like ninja photographers- all three of you were everywhere and nowhere at the same time. I have no idea how you do it, but it's pretty amazing!" -Louise L., Wedding Coordinator
"You just really know where to be when, but you're not in anyone's way. It's like your goal is to fade into the background so everyone can focus on the wedding and have a great view, and that's really a gift" -Norma T., Wedding Guest
"The best thing you can be as a wedding photographer is a shadow- and being a shadow is really hard- but all three of you mastered it!" -Jeff S., Wedding Guest

I have nothing but amazing things to say about Lauren Page Wadsworth. From the moment we met her, we knew we wanted to work with her. It was important for us to find a photographer who was an artist, willing to try new techniques and push boundaries, and Lauren’s work certainly reflected that. We hired Lauren and her partner for our Western Massachusetts wedding. We wanted someone who was chill and wouldn’t stress us out. That’s exactly what we got. She and her partner were clever shadows all day — floating from room to room, sneakily setting up beautiful shots with rings and flowers, yet stopping to poke us whenever they saw an opportunity for an interesting shot. I felt completely at ease with her, and I felt that her photographs perfectly captured the story of our day. We had a space-themed wedding, and it was our dream to have some photographs taken at night (which is typically not an easy feat.) Lauren took note of our wishes, and surprised us with not one but dozens of gorgeous shots of the night sky dotted with stars, complete with Milky Way bands. The only problem we have is figuring out which of her beautiful shots to get framed. I also loved that she was very responsive on email. We are very much email people, and she was completely cool with that. It really took the stress off of wedding planning. I highly recommend LPW if you’re looking for a laid-back photographer who will find and capture art in your wedding day.
-Annette and Jason (Wedding)
Lauren is just the best. I would not hesitate to involve her with any event requiring professional, fun, beautiful photography. She has a great system to accommodate any need. We did multiple sessions with her and really cannot say enough about how great it was to work with her. Her rates were very attractive, but the best part is how many digital photos with tasteful post-processing we get having worked with her. A+++, look no further for a great experience and final product.
-Katie and John (Engagement Session + Wedding)
Lauren has the kind of photography eye that you really don't find anywhere else. She has the power to turn seemingly regular scenery into magazine-like shots, as well as finding the perfect angles and backdrops. My wife and I were overwhelmed by how great she and Crista were at our wedding and for our engagement shoot.
-Andrew and Julie (Engagement Session + Wedding)
Ahh I can't stop looking at the photos- great job again! My friends and family love them too- one of the bridesmaids said "Wowwww these are the most beautifullest, least corniest, wedding photos I've ever seen! She is so talented! Everyone looks amazing."
-Maya W. (Wedding)
Lauren did an amazing job. All 226 people that attended the dance now have more than just a fond memory. She really captured the spirt of the event and I cant thank her enough!
-Jason S. (Event)
Just amazing!! They made our day just PERFECT! Since our wedding was destination wedding @ boston, I contacted her through email, and she always responded very quickly, made everything smooth and clear. On the day of our wedding, she and her partner showed up did their best (cannot be better than that!!) to capture every moment of our special day. I cannot express how much I appreciate their efforts! and the photos are just amazing! please consider Lauren if you are planning to have wedding/ special events ! highly recommended !! :)
-Haemee and Jayual (Wedding)
Oh my goodness Lauren. I can't even begin to describe how happy you have made us. These pictures are amazing. I will have a hard time narrowing down which ones I want to get framed or out in a book. Thank you soooooo much again you are amazing and I'll be recommending you to my family since there are a couple weddings coming up!
Absolutely great. From the minute we met her, we knew she would be that one vendor we did not need to worry about, and she proved us right. Responsive, punctual, caring and flexible. Showed up on time, was easy going, acted very professional throughout and showed great talent. Gave good directions on the type of photos that we should take, was patient with out large family, and had great equipment and back up photographer. Completely deserving of the 5 stars.
Lauren took both my engagement photos as well as my wedding photos . She was always accommodating, friendly, and responsive! She is an incredibly talented photographer who is passionate about her work and truly cates about her clients. I receive endless compliments on my photos to this day! I was so pleased with all aspects of our experience together. Fabulous! -Amanda
-Amanda and Drew (Wedding)
Lauren did the photography for my wedding in April and she did a tremendous job. I am so pleased with my pictures – they look stunning. She captured both posed and candid moments and the colors look beautiful. I appreciated that she was always responsive to emails and most importantly, day of, she arrived on time and then didn't stop for the next 9 hours. My wedding party all really liked her; they thought that she was super nice, creative in her direction and was willing to take a variety of pictures. She was never bossy or rude to my friends or guests.
It was a spectacular day and I am so grateful that Lauren was able to capture it all.
-Gloria T. (Wedding)
My family has had Lauren take pictures for us for more than seven years. She has always been professional and prompt in getting us our pictures. We have always been pleased with the results. I would recommend her to anyone for any occasion. She is not just a talented photographer, but she is the kindest sweetest person and has a beautiful soul. If you need some special photos taken, consider her. You won't be sorry!
-Jennifer M. (Family portraits)
My husband and I hired Lauren as the photographer for my wedding, and although I am shy, she actually made the photographing the event fun for me! She helped us with posing, but also took a lot of candid shots, and the pictures turned out AMAZING! She is also very unobtrusive, which made the day also comfortable for our guests. You can not go wrong with hiring Lauren as your photographer.
-Jess S. (Wedding)
Lauren did the photography for our wedding ceremony in August and was fantastic! We had a private outdoor ceremony where we had great fun with Lauren walking around a park taking photos. We enjoyed her company a lot & the whole process felt very relaxed for us. She was very helpful & accommodating in the lead up to the day as well. She captured some special moments for us & we are delighted with the results. She is a great photographer and a very nice person too!
-Amanda and Drew (Wedding)
Lauren shot my August 2015 wedding and her work was phenomenal. Between her and Crista, they captured so many memorable moments throughout the day. She struck a balance of candid and planned photos and even incorporated some shots that I requested in advance. She and her associate photographer were patient with the many requests from our family members, but did not let that interfere with their ability capture the many photographic opportunities around them. They even stayed extra time at the end of the reception to shoot the sparkler exit (after we exceeded our venue time). If you are looking for a professional, reliable, creative photographer then I would definitetly recommend Lauren Page Wadsworth Photography.
-Spesh and Steph (Wedding)
Lauren has been working for me for several years. Her work is professional and exquisite! Originally she created product shots of my clothing line for my website veryvineyard.com. Later, she worked on modeling shots and for the website and for catalog and other promotional materials. Recently, she photographed my son's graduation party. She is easy to work with and has great ideas, always coming up with something interesting and new. I love the way that she can look at things from different angles. I would recommend her for any photographic needs you might have.
