I am Laura.

My photography is authentic and meant to stand the test of time. 
  I am all about the genuine emotions and profound moments that tell your story, in the most beautiful and honest way. 
You wish to have a reminder of each person you love the most and why you love them. Photos of your favorite part of the day: The one slow dancing, the one belly laughing. More than perfectly constructed photos, photos to aid your real memories on how it all felt.

I am forever in love with people and the connections that bring us together.

All of the photos reflect the love.

Laura went above and beyond to capture our wedding day. We had a few special requests, like some photos with our dog and photos of each table, and she took these in stride. We wanted the focus of the photography to be on our families, since we are rarely in one place at one time, and I feel like she succeeded in this 100% - all of the photos reflect the love and importance of family togetherness.



Laura was great and was truly invested in our whole story. We were so happy with our photos. they really captured us. We were continually impressed by her creativity and visual storytelling, her plans, and her preparedness.

Super creative and fun

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. 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!
