Lauren Haya Photography



My name is Lauren and I am a natural light wedding and portrait photographer located in the Winona, MN area but absolutely love to travel all over Minneapolis & surrounding states! I am graduate from Winona State University with a Bachelor's Degree in Elementary Education! 


For as long as I can remember, I've always been the one in my friend group to have a camera in my hand. Let me tell you - I have documented more of my family and friends' lives then they probably wish. Taking photos is something I have always held near and dear to my heart & that passion has only grown over the years. I strive to better myself and my business each and every day! 



I absolutely love capturing the love and light within each of my clients and capturing everlasting moments is what I live for. Photography began as a hobby and it has transformed into a passion that I would love to share with YOU!

Lauren is absolutely a dream to work with - she shot both our engagement session and our entire wedding day and we couldn't be more happy with the results. We had an absolute blast during our engagement session at Minnehaha Falls in Minneapolis - she truly captured the essence of our love for one another. The wedding day couldn't have gone smoother! Lauren worked with our DJ to make sure we were staying on schedule, and she went out of her way to get the best shots. She was contentious to the fact it was chilly outside (11/04 wedding in Minnesota) and didn't make us stand outside too long for pictures. She printed out the emails I had sent her of shots I wanted her to capture, but also used her own creativity to capture shots not even Pinterest has yet :) If you're still looking for a wedding photographer, look no further than Lauren. She will amaze you with her talent, responsiveness, and professionalism. We're SO unbelievably grateful that we had the opportunity to work with her.

Lauren is an absolute joy to work with. I had her take some personal photos for me this past year, and I was so happy with the results. She made me feel comfortable and was very professional throughout our entire transaction. She has a knack for making beautiful moments come to life through photography and really made me feel stunning before, during and after my session. I would definitely recommend her for any of your photo needs. Thank you, Lauren Haya Photography! <3

"Lauren is very patient and was able to capture a very active 2 year old's pictures! Our little lady was not interested in posing, and Lauren just worked with us! She took pics as our little chick played and ran and laughed! Lauren captured so many wonderful things, and most of all the heart of our dear little lady!"
