Photographer for 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 I have grown my family 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.
From this day forward
"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!"
WORDS FROM OTHERS
Laurie was pure joy to work with! She walked us through every step of our engagement/wedding with patience, excitement and so much fun. She was so easy to talk to, work with and so communicative. Her pictures are absolutely beautiful.We are so happy with our finished
products. I look forward to using Laurie in the future and will certainly recommend her
to family, friends and anyone who is looking for a photographer!
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!
