Let's face it, your wedding is a pretty big deal... You're standing in front of all of your people promising to love just one person until death parts you, there is a huge party, tons of pretty little details, all of the emotions - all in one day. No do overs. You need someone who can handle it all. Someone who can make you look amazing, highlight all of the emotion, tell your story, and make it all effortless. That's where I come in.
Hey, I'm Laura...
I'm a very unique blend of experience, passion, technical expertise, creativity, love, and commitment. I have, hands down, one of the most comprehensive and thoughtful approaches to documenting a wedding in our local market. I'm strong in all aspects of shooting a wedding, not just the pretty, fun stuff. Most importantly I care about the responsibility I take in your life when you trust me with this task. I put my heart and soul into every single wedding.
I started this business all the way back in 2009 as a boutique wedding photography company and have expanded to add on commercial services and wedding films. I consider myself a storyteller, first and foremost.
I wear all the hats...
I've found that the longer I've been documenting wedding stories, the deeper and broader the connections are that I have with each of my couples and the stories they have to tell. Quite simply, I love it more as time goes by. As each year of my own life's experiences unfold, I find a greater connection, more perspective, and enhanced value in more and more that I witness on a wedding day. I'm a story teller at heart.
I WAS MARRIED IN 2008, BECAME A GIRL MOM IN 2013 AND A BOY MOM IN 2016. I'M A DAUGHTER, A SISTER, AND A BEST FRIEND TOO. ALL OF THESE ROLES IN MY OWN LIFE ALLOW ME TO CONNECT WITH TELLING WEDDING STORIES FOR MY CLIENTS.
I love all the pretty things...
I think none of that is by coincidence. Tradition meeting trends at home, at work, in fashion, in story-telling, and in art. What better recipe is there? Finding value in the old while seeking adventure and fresh perspective is my approach in virtually all that I do. No wonder I found my way into this field! PLUS... I'm a SUCKER for two people in love. What can I say?
i'm a girly girl 100%! my hair changes constantly and i'm a trend loving soul. i love dresses with pockets (who doesn't though), nice purses, and blending tradition with flourish and flare.
I'm a proud doggy mamma to my two Boston Terriers, Mikey & Maddy. Before them, were Mugsy & Midge. I can't imagine life without a dog! Especially not one who appears to be permanently dressed for a wedding. Boston's are true gentlemen.
I know, I KNOW... I just can't. I wish I loved it. I get a little jealous when I see someone really getting into it. In fact, I'm known to order it on occasion just to keep giving it a shot. I promise I'm still sweet. I'm just more of a chips and salsa kind of person.
I can't even tell you how happy I am when I find a cute new shoe that doesn't hurt my feet. It's occasion enough to go out to celebrate.
Ok... now this is not entirely true. I still love a good heal. I just need to make sure I'm going where I know we'll be seated about 97% of the time.
I LOVE taking photos of people. Not so much of a landscape photographer though. I love bringing out the natural talents, personality, and beauty in those that I photograph. It's all about getting to know someone & telling their story.
I'm one of those horribly awkward people whose skin just crawls in front of the camera. Thankfully, if you can get me to really smile I disguise it well. I think this actually makes me a better photographer though so I don't actually hate this quality.
It's like my second language. If you're ever in a conversation with me and you wonder "Is she freaking serious???" The answer is always nope. I just think I'm super duper hilarious. And you will too! Cuz, I totes am... For realz.
I just can't. And I'll probably call you out on it. Okay, maybe not. But I'd love to! I'm a sucker for all of the warm fuzzy things in life too, I just can't do all of the cringy cheese-tastic hokey stuff. I think I'm allergic.
I feel like the day flew by and it was hard to remember every moment, thank goodness for all our wonderful photos. She was able to capture so many of our magical moments.
