"Laura was so wonderful as the photographer for our wedding. She made us both feel so comfortable and made everything feel as natural as possible. She took so many pictures that we have a great record of the entire day. I appreciated that she discussed with us beforehand specific shots we wanted. She went above and beyond as the wedding coordinator at our venue was not very responsive to our needs that day. She helped keep everything on schedule and coordinated. She kept me sane and lowered my stress level. I was so appreciative of all of her wedding expertise! Overall, Laura is super creative and fun to be around. She made my wedding day better and hiring her was the best decision I made for my wedding day - besides saying I do to my groom!"
"We are so incredibly happy that we chose Laura as our wedding photographer! Throughout the whole planning process, she was open, friendly and extremely helpful. She was quick to respond to all of my questions and I always felt like we were on the same page. Through every step of the process, she was there for us with her amazing ideas and suggestions. I really appreciated Laura’s calm demeanor on the big day – she was very professional and non-intrusive. Even more than being very organized and pleasant to work with, she is an exceptionally talented photographer!! We are so happy with all of our photos.
Laura’s wonderful work is going to help us remember how beautiful and joyous our wedding day was for the rest of our lives. Thanks so much, Laura – we appreciate you more than you know!"
