all of life's special moments based in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania
Laurie Beth Ward is an engagement & wedding, maternity & newborn, and family photographer based in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania and providing services to the Lehigh Valley and beyond.
Although my family has grown in Bethlehem I grew up in the Slate Belt so there's familiarity with the Poconos & New Jersey area.
Laurie Beth Ward is also available for travel and has shot multiple weddings in the New York & Delaware areas.
LAUGHTER & LOVE
ALONG FOR THE JOURNEY
Not only do I love to be a part of your wedding day but ALL the moments after!
With a fun & sentimental personality and love for human emotion & connection, I’m always looking to create photographs that will put you first. I want to make you feel and remember each moment with intensity. The joy, happy tears and laughter; this is why I am so excited to be a part of this journey with you.
I don't want to just feel like your photographer - I want to feel like a friend just celebrating your big day alongside you!
My favorite part is continuing that life journey in pregnancy & capturing your growing family, and that's honestly why I cherish connecting with you. Your wedding day is just the start of more milestones to remember & cherish.
"Laurie captured our wedding so beautifully and accurately!
It truly was so fun and special & I'm so thankful to have these photos to look back on!"
Hi I'm Laurie Beth
& I will be the best third wheel.
Married to my high school sweetheart,
mother to a little lady and sweet rainbow boy.
I'm one of 5 girls, so big families are no problem to me!
If you're into the enneagram I'm a 4 - the individualist.
Even in the winter I'm ordering an iced coffee drink.
Besides being a photographer, I like to be a “home improvement hero” I’m always finding a DIY home project to spruce up our home, or moving decor around.
I'm a butterfly whisperer, for years, I wanted to be a lepidopterist - a butterfly scientist. So if you release them at your wedding you best believe I'll grab one to utilize with details or as a hair accessory!
Reach out to me via the contact form, and I'll get back to you to discuss all the details & questions you may have. Don't shy away, ask anything! I prefer we start via email chatting. If inquiring for wedding photography I love to sit down and meet.
Yay! Let's secure your date, a deposit and contract is required for all sessions & weddings to solidify my services. I'll explain the whole process and be right there along with you.
HOW IT WORKS
Plan it out
I have questionnaires and booklets to send filled with information to get my vision to align with your vision, from your wedding day experience to your maternity & newborn experience. (Coming soon!)
Depending on which of my services your images will be delivered via an online gallery where images can be purchased and downloaded to save!
