Meet the Team: Lauren Peterson, The Woman behind our Voice

Posted on April 2nd, 2020 in Our Family by Gabe Fredericks

Here at Philip Gabriel, we are a big family. We wanted to take this time to introduce you to all the people that make your wedding day, commercial projects, family photos, and every other photo shoot absolutely perfect! Our second introduction is the woman behind almost all of our communications! When she isn’t taking care of it herself, this former teacher corrects and spices up almost all of the emails, blogs, social media posts, and other things that the rest of us are writing. Lauren Peterson truly is the voice of Philip Gabriel Photography! Here are her answers to our deeply invasive, twelve question interview.

1: How did you get started in photography?

I have always had an interest in photography growing up but only recently pursued a full time career in the biz. While my role with Philip Gabriel Photography is more behind the scenes  than behind the camera, I love being a part of the process!

2: If you could go to any concerts past or present, what would it be?

I would love to see Journey back in the 80s!

My dog George is my bestie and I can’t imagine life without him!

Over the past few years we have photographed some of Philadelphia’s most beautiful hotels. It would be a dream to travel to different parts of the world for more architectural and hospitality shoots!

I wish I could speak multiple languages!

I find the best way I de-stress and decompress is at the gym.

I am most proud of my ability to bake and decorate cakes. A couple of years ago I created a cake that looked just like R2D2.

9: Where does the perfect road trip take you?

My perfect road trip takes me out to Yellowstone National Park. back in 2017 I drive out to the Badlands and Mount Rushmore in South Dakota, but didn’t make it all the way to Yellowstone.

German chocolate cake with peanut butter icing

My beautiful dog son’s name is George Washington and he is the light of my life!
