"Laurie was pure joy to work with!"
- Lindsay & Robbie, Married August 2021
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!
Capturing all the emotional moments
I'm a memory person in that I recall moments, names, songs and places. I always say it's a love/hate relationship, but thankfully with a job as a photographer it's a love relationship! Your wedding day is beautiful however you celebrate and whoever celebrates it with you. It's a day of joy and excitement, and my job is to capture that for you to have and to hold from your wedding day forward!
I love all the emotions that come with a wedding day be it nerves, excitement and anticipation. Being authentically yourself on your wedding day and before helps me! This is also so helpful in the way I want to capture you as a couple. I work in a posed, but also candid approach and you lead the moment way! I'll spring prompts on you to get you and your significant other loosened up and laughing if you want, or you take the lead and be in the moment of just you two. If you don't know how to pose, don't worry I can take the lead and get you in to a comfortable position for movement and emotional moments together!
I'm an open book and love to be transparent in who I am. I want you to be just as comfortable with me as I can be with you!
Always available for questions
I am never bothered by a text or email with any questions, ideas, inspiration or thoughts. Send away, because I would love for you to over ask then not ask at all and wonder!
If you are struggling with what to wear for your engagement session or locations to take your engagement pictures at. Unsure of other vendors you need booked for your wedding day? I can help you with that, with some recommendations of vendors I've worked with.
I do have a wedding day experience booklet that will hold lots of information & tips that you receive upon booking with me, so make sure to check there!
Assist in timeline creation & family photo list
I work based off the times given for your wedding day to create a timeline to utilize my photo coverage time to the fullest. Don't stress what time I'm arriving! I will figure that out and you can approve or change if you feel necessary. Along with the timeline when you send me your family members names I will formulate a list to make what can be the most stressful time of the wedding day quick and easy! I always just ask for approval and if changes need to be made or additions as well. My 2nd is my right hand person and will call and assemble to make sure these are done within 15-30 minutes as long as everyone is present!

I have questionnaires and booklets to send filled with information to get my vision to align with your vision and just to get to know you as a couple!
My engagement sessions are
laid-back, fun and interactive, incorporating both candid interaction and romantic posing.
An engagement session is a great way to get to know me and learn the poses and relax in front of the camera, it's like a practice run for the big day. I also see engagement photos as a fun date- do your hair, makeup, and get fancy! If that's not your speed then it's a time to have more casually dressed photos, or do both because with engagement sessions you do have the option to have an outfit change!
