01. Hey there, I'm laura

I'm a wedding photographer based in the small town of Griffin, GA (just outside Atlanta!). I love natural light and color, and my jam are couples who are best friends first and love spending every moment adventuring through life together. Belly laughs and hand holding 'til your sides hurt and your hands are sweaty? That's true love!

I just got engaged to my best friend, Garrett! Isn't being engaged fun?? We love traveling together, hanging with our sweet pets, and watching The Office. A perfect day for us is traveling a new city, eating the best food, and enjoying every moment being together!

If we're gonna be friends, you should probably know that I have an obsession with elephants & I love margaritas! A day that involves both may just be perfect!

stoked as I am to get started?

Let's talk more!

Where I want to go

IRELAND                  NEW ZEALAND
HAWAII                    WEST USA
GERMANY                SPAIN
NEPAL                      BALI

About me

next

Below is a list of places that are on my and Garrett's bucket list to experience, and we'd love to experience it with an incredible couple too! I'm offering discounted packages to any couple who'll bring me and G along for travel costs only. No catch, I swear! 

If your dream wedding day matches up with any of these, lets make it happen!

meet my parents, butch & catherine

My parents had a small chapel wedding in California with only a pastor and two friends present. I've been told it was intimate and lovely, that my mom looked like a dream in her dress and my dad only had eyes for her. But I have zero photographs of their wedding.

02. Why I photography Weddings

the story continues

Throughout the years, they documented my siblings and me growing up and snapped a few pictures of themselves, too (on those lovely Kodak cameras!). And I hold onto these photos because I can see my parents’ personalities in them! They aren’t stoic, vogue masterpieces, but they’re 100% Butch and Catherine. And I would have loved to be able to see that same spirit on their wedding day.

Each time I photograph a new couple, I imagine their daughter seeing how lovely her mom was on this day. I think about how their grandchildren will discover them as they were in that moment, learning their legacy even though they would only see wrinkles in real life. 

And I think about those rough moments in their marriage, where they just need to be reminded why they started this crazy journey in the first place.

I want to capture an honest portrayal of your wedding day: how you two laugh in each other’s arms, your two families dancing the night away and that small glimpse of “I can’t believe she’s mine” he gives you when you’re not looking.

Your day may go by quickly, but my job is to capture these moments before they get away and say “no, this moment stays.”

I may be biased, but I believe I have the hottest fiance and the cutest pets! Meet Garrett, Guinness & Khaleesi!

He put a ring on it!
