Doing Proposal photography in the Twin cities is one of my all time favorite!  There is such a high emotion and joy! Photographing this unique moment is a wonderful way to save it and make it a gift for your soon to be spouse!

I usually get “the call” or the email very close to the actual proposal, so there is tons of excitement!

  1. You and your partner
  2. A ring
  3. A Special Spot (See below for ideas)
  4. An itinerary for the day
  5. Prepare what to say!

  7. Family (Optional)
  8. Bubbly (Optional)

"We will certainly treasure them"

"Those photos are AMAZING! Thank you so much for capturing the memories of our special day. We will certainly treasure them forever & I’m so glad Nic found you in Minneapolis! "

"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. She was so kind, compassionate, and incredibly easy to work with. She made the process effortless so that I could focus my time and energy on other aspects of the day and did not have to worry about the photography side of it at all. I would highly recommend Laura!


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!
