WASSSUPPP. I’m Laurie Hamame. You’re probably pronouncing it wrong, so just call me ham sandwich like the kids growing up did. When I get excited about something (and it doesn’t take much), I sing my words, dance wildly, and talk nonstop… like, 100% more than I probably should. I shoot love stories so you already know that I’ve got a soft and mushy center (like all the best chocolate chip cookies do). I always play Kirby in Super Smash Bros and make a mean homemade salsa. Obsessed with all things Taylor Swift, lavender, morning runs, and mountains. In my spare time, you can find me with my nose buried in a book, at a local craft show, or collecting beach glass with my boyfriend Connor (I’ve got golden retriever energy and he’s my rock). I got nominated Most Suitable to Bring Home to Your Parents as a senior in high school. Oh, and I’m a Taurus, ENFP, and enneagram 2. If you’re into that starry stuff, you’ll know that means I’m fiercely loyal. I got yo’ back, babes!!! I can promise you that I will be your hype woman, dress fluffer, hair fixer, compliment giver, and absolutely anything that you need from me on your big day. You can trust that I’ll be your best wedding day BFF, and we’ll have one heck of a party getting you hitched!!
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!
