Exceptional photography

Communication and trust

Attention to detail

Professionalism and poise

Connection and care

Your beautiful, long-awaited celebration deserves photographs that are as brilliant and unique as your love story, and that is precisely what you can expect from me.

The details are what differentiate a good story from a grand one. Through years of experience, I have gained a keen awareness of capturing the subtle elements that bring the unique qualities of yours to life.

 
Whether blending into the background during sacred moments or directing the flow of photography to bring it all to life, I will remain adaptable as the day unfolds and be conscious of your needs.


Creating unforgettable images is more than lighting and composition; it is also helping you feel comfortable and at ease in front of the camera. From gentle posing direction and only capturing your best angles to helping when something goes array, I will feel like an extension of your family in my intuitive care and personal approach.


The deeply meaningful photos emerge when the photographer and bride share the same vision.  My process is collaborative and thoughtful, leaving you confident that the final delivery will be everything you dreamed it would be.

1. Consultation

The process

Let’s set up a time to connect and chat about the two of you and the vision and experience you desire for your wedding.

2. Reserve Your Date

After your consultation, I will send you a proposal that will enable you to review and sign an agreement (so all of my promises to you are in writing) and pay your $1,500 retainer. 
Your date is officially reserved!

Time to get warmed up for the wedding day! We will choose a dreamy location and I will direct you every step of the way. This is a wonderful opportunity for me to get acquainted with your best angles and for both of you to become comfortable in front of the camera before the wedding.

4. wedding day

The PG wedding experience is marked by quality. I will work with you and your planner on a timeline that will ensure the best photographs prior to the wedding. When the day is here, you will be able to fully relax knowing that all you’ve invested into making this day special is going to be honored by me and my team through how we intentionally serve you. 

Your images will be delivered 4-6 weeks after your wedding, but you will receive a sneak peek gallery shortly after because I know how difficult the wait can be! All of your photos will be delivered on a beautiful online gallery so that you can easily view, download and share with friends and family.

The final and most important part of the PG experience: preserving your legacy in print. I will send you a beautifully designed album for you to review and revise as needed. Once it is everything you dreamed, your album will be sent on to you to be an heirloom for generations to come.

Caring, thoughtful, incredibly gracious, and professional, Laura not only delivers beautiful imagery, but a wonderful experience, too.

WHAT IS YOUR APPROACH & SHOOTING STYLE ON THE WEDDING DAY?

A wedding day is naturally compiled of different situations that call for different styles of photography (ie. styled details = editorial approach | portraits & family photos = portraiture approach | preparation, first looks, ceremony = photo-journalistic approach). Some situations call for me to be more intentional, inserting myself through guided positioning and other situations call for me to be unobtrusive, letting the “moments” happen naturally. In any given photo opportunity, my goal is to craft and document the most authentic & effortless imagery while capturing all of the intimate emotional moments without intrusion.

faq

WHAT IS YOUR TURNAROUND TIME FOR IMAGES?

Your online gallery from your wedding will be available within 4-6 weeks to view, download and share with family and friends (they can also order professional prints here). I strive to give my clients the fastest turnaround possible, one that I promise is worth the wait! Portrait sessions typically take 2-4 weeks to turnaround. Album time varies based on when you confirm the final design!

faq

HOW MANY PHOTOS DO I RECEIVE?

I focus on quality over quantity, creating authentic imagery to tell a cohesive story, rather than giving you 1000 images of the same pose. The final result is an heirloom for generations to come, rather than more "stuff" on your shelves. There are many depending factors throughout each wedding, but you can expect 60-80 final images per hour of wedding coverage. 

faq

CAN WE SEND YOU A SHOT LIST TO FOLLOW?

Absolutely, I do ask for a shot list for family photos to make sure we don’t forget to include someone important to you. This list is to be kept brief at 10 groupings or less for a quick flow before or following the ceremony. Beyond this, I do not work off of a list as this limits my creativity. You’ve invested in me as an artist to capture your authentic story and entrusted me to provide a fantastic experience, so you can trust it will be nothing short of that!

faq

HOW FAR IN ADVANCE SHOULD WE BOOK YOU? AND WHAT IS YOUR BOOKING PROCESS?


Most couples book roughly 6months-1year (max) in advance to ensure their date is secured on my calendar as I only commission a limited number of weddings per year. To book, a $1,500 non-refundable deposit is required, along with a signed contract. The remaining balance is due 30 days before the wedding date.

WE ARE NERVOUS ABOUT BEING UNCOMFORTABLE IN FRONT OF THE CAMERA! DO YOU HAVE ANY TIPS?


Yes! I totally get it. Let’s set some expectations for each other. I do NOT expect you to know how to pose yourself, gaze into my camera, know what to do with your hands or act like a model. I’ve got you and will direct you into these moments, only capturing the ones that showcase your true personalities. Our time together will be more like taking a walk with an old friend, instead of being super posey posey. The biggest tip is to RELAX and smile. Trust me, the magic happens when you’re relaxed and comfortable.
