I believe in timeless photographs.



The kind that last through the ever-changing trends and genuinely tell the story of the people in them.

Photographs are one of the few tangible items you take from your wedding day, and they are what give generations to follow a more intimate glimpse into the vibrant, young couple in love that they know as parents and grandparents. 

I put my heart into capturing quality, genuine, romantic imagery that stands the test of time. 

I can’t wait to tell your love story. 

love,
Laura

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/or 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.

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

A wedding day is naturally compiled of different situations that call for different approaches and 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.

HOW LONG DO WE PATIENTLY WAIT TO RECEIVE OUR 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 WILL I RECEIVE? 

It’s all about quality over quantity here! I focus on creating authentic imagery to tell a cohesive story, rather than giving you 1000 images of the same pose. There are many depending factors throughout each wedding, but you can expect 60-80 final images per hour of wedding coverage. 

faq

DO I RECEIVE COPYRIGHTS TO THE IMAGES?

In all PG collections, you will receive high-resolution, fully edited JPEG images that are print quality accompanied by a copyright release allowing you to share and print your images. Most of our clients won’t require a full copyright buyout. For clients who are extremely private and concerned with privacy, we do offer full buyout of copyrights to the images. Please inquire for pricing and usage restrictions.

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 list, I do not work off of a list as this limits me and my creativity. You’ve invested in me as an artist to capture your authentic story and entrusted me to provide a fantastic experience. I’ve got you!

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.  Don’t be afraid to email me and check availability. 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.

faq

WE ARE SO NERVOUS TO BE 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.

WHAT SHOULD MY FIANCE’ AND I KNOW BEFORE HIRING A PHOTOGRAPHER?

Aside from the obvious considerations of style and budget, I think every couple should have a connection with their photographer. You can price shop and compare work, but you should spend time building a strong relationship. I invest time in each of my clients (even for just an hour) to discover each other and learn about the story that brought them together, thus building a strong foundation of trust and communication. A photographer is intimately involved in so much of a couple's wedding day, so you want to feel at ease. I feel the most creative and free when I know the most about my clients and can understand them and vise-versa. Just as each client is different, no photographer is exactly the same.

heirloom albums

PG albums serve as an heirloom from your wedding day. My layout philosophy is to keep designs minimal and classic as a way to truly bring the story of the day to life. I intentionally design the first draft, then send to you for comments and revisions. These albums are handcrafted in the USA and come in various leather and linen covers of your choice.
