Photographing love, in all its forms, reveals to me time and time again that love is the most powerful force in the universe, and we are blessed with the extraordinary power to both give and receive it. How lucky am I to witness it, to deliver a little sliver of frozen time in which you felt yourself — unapologetic, messily human, beautifully flawed, and wildly loved.

I’ll make you shout, jump, twirl, and belly laugh all in the name of art. This isn’t just my job; it’s your life. Let’s stop it for a second (or a fraction of a second if we’re getting technical) so that you can relive those precious moments over and over again. Whether you’re planning a grand celebration in a fancy venue or an intimate elopement amidst the stunning backdrop of a National Park, I need you because I’m a storyteller and you need me because your story is worth telling.

I don’t want to be “just another thing to cross off the wedding planning list” or “a decent photographer you found on Google.” I am not just a service provider, a vendor, or a person with a camera. When you book me, you can expect me to not only create beautiful images that will capture all of the emotions of your day, but I will also help with the stresses and join in on the excitement. Like… how I feel about my couples is akin to a golden retriever puppy.

What past clients have had to say...

If you like what you see of Laurie and her work but haven’t quite taken the leap yet, TAKE THE LEAP. You won’t regret it. Laurie was an absolute dream come true photographer for us! She has the perfect blend of light and dark, natural and styled, in all her photos, which in our photographer research process, was RARE to find. She has such a big heart, is incredibly helpful and communicative, and does an amazing job when she’s physically with you and later when you get the photos. I was very picky and wanted certain types of photos and places in our church because it’s an important church for our families. Laurie catered to all of it. She got me all the photos I asked for AND plenty more beautiful photos throughout our wedding day.

Hiring Laurie was the best wedding decision I made. She was so professional, answered all of our questions, and helped create our timeline. She was definitely more than our wedding photographer; she acted as a day of coordinator, bridesmaid, therapist, and friend. Working with her was so effortless and she went above and beyond. My wedding day was not stressful because of everything she did and how she made everything so fun. There is a lot I didn’t see or notice on my wedding day and looking through our photos truly felt like I was reliving my day. She perfectly captures a moment in time.

I don’t think our wedding day would have gone off without a hitch like it did without Laurie. Her attention to detail, time management, and ability to handle a crazy big bridal party with ease made her the perfect fit for our big day. She was able to make my usually nervous husband feel so comfortable with her! We are so grateful to Laurie and can’t recommend her enough!
