MY APPROACH

If you asked anyone who knows me to describe me in one word, I am almost 100% certain that word would be “chill”. My laidback nature comes in handy during high stress environments like weddings. Don’t get me wrong, I am EXTREMELY organized and even type A at times, but I don’t sweat the small stuff! On your wedding day you can rest assured that I will be a calming presence throughout the day, even if things don’t go as planned. I strongly believe that a wedding is a once and a lifetime opportunity and I don’t want you to miss it by posing for photos for hours on end. As your photographer, my goal is to make you feel comfortable and confident in front of my camera while still allowing you and your partner to savor the moment that you're in. 

A FEW OF MY FAVORITE THINGS

a little about me

HI! I'M LAURA

Ever since I could remember I have been drawn to art that makes me feel. Song lyrics, poems, books, movies, photographs…if it makes my emotions come alive, I want to savor the feelings with every ounce of my empathetic soul! When I began my photography journey, I was instantly obsessed with taking photographs of people and it wasn’t long before I realized that love stories were my favorite stories to tell, so I dove head first into photographing couples in love, and later weddings and elopements. 

 

My photography can be described as cinematic and moody, with a dreamy twist! I'm not interested in creating a false reality, I want to capture the real you, the raw and the messy because that is what truly makes your love story unique.

"Where do I begin, Laura is the most amazing photographer out there. Her vision, the direction, and attention to detail she has is unbelievable. She gave amazing cues and direction to make our photos feel and look most natural. I highly recommend if you’re reading this do yourself a favor and hire Laura, she’s an artist filled with love. It was an honor being able to work with her."

SABRINA & JON

"Laura is so wonderful to work with! I admired her work on instagram for a long time before booking my own shoot. I’m typically a bit awkward and uncomfortable in front of the camera but she made me feel so confident. She was great at giving us posing direction, coordinating a location to help match the vibe we wanted, and is a pleasure to be around. I did two shoots with her in the span of a few months and cannot wait to continue working with her in the future. She’s the best!"

ANNA & GAVIN

"Laura has been the best photographer we’ve ever worked with! She is so personable and professional and really brought the vision we had to life. Not to mention she is amazing with her timeline, follow ups, how quickly she gets you your completed photos, the list goes on. We adore her and are so happy to have found a photographer for any future needs along with a friend!"

THE TAYLORS

"Laura did such an AMAZING job on our photos! These are the best photos my husband and I have ever had taken - they captured so genuinely our love and who we are as a couple. I can’t even pick favorites I legitimately love them all so much! There should be no debate - you NEED this girl to be your photographer! I’m a client for life now - 100/100."

TEAL & JAY

"Working with Laura was such a fun experience with lots of laughter and smiles. She gave us great direction but also enough freedom to be our weird selves! Laura is one of the best photographers I have ever worked with and I can’t wait to shoot with her again!"

KATE & JOVAN

"One of the really special things about Laura is that she truly cares about ensuring you feel comfortable throughout the entire shoot. Not only does she make you feel comfortable when taking your pictures, she's also very professional and communicative. I initially reached out to her to take engagement photos and I could not even imagine having someone else take photos for our elopement. I could not recommend Laura enough!"

FATIMA & JONATHON

"Laura did such a wonderful job with our wedding shoot! She had lots of great location suggestions and was so helpful at guiding us through prompts to get those candid-style photos I so desired. My husband and I are not very natural at posing, so having lots of prompts and planned poses helped us so much. She was kind, timely, and professional. I'm continuously in awe of all the work she posts on her socials as well. Portland is very lucky to have her as a local photographer."

ELLIE & JOE

"Laura took our family's first photos and I literally could not be more obsessed! We immediately printed them and hung them in our house. Laura is so incredibly talented and patient (we have a three-year-old who wanted to feed the ducks the whole time). Thank you Laura for the memories you captured!"
