Atlanta + Coastal Georgia + The Southeast

let's be friends!

Meet Laura

I am a wedding photographer, design nerd, chill traveler, pup & kitten mom, wife to the hottest man ...and I probably listen to more true crime podcasts than is healthy. I love small town living and big city exploring, but I'd trade it all in for a small house, custom built by Garrett, on a piece of our own land any day of the week and twice on Sunday!

think we'd be friends?

My name is Laura, and I've been passionately capturing love stories like yours since 2012. My heart gravitates towards serving others, and I aim to be a force of positivity and joy while keeping your cherished memories safe.

Nothing I say will do her justice! From the first time I met Laura, I knew she was the perfect fit as our wedding photographer. Her personality makes you feel so comfortable, like you’ve known her for years, and she captured our wedding day so perfectly from the little details to the big moments. She was the best investment we made and I am so grateful that we chose her as our wedding photographer!

Laura is not only an exceptional photographer, she’s an equally extraordinary human being. She has this incredible ability to skillfully capture each individual personality in the most beautifully natural way. It’s no exaggeration that they broke the mold when they made Laura and any future bride would be lucky to have her as their photographer!

"She captured our wedding day so perfectly from the little details to the big moments. She is the kind of person you want around you on your big day."

Laura is the absolute best wedding photographer in the business! Nothing I say will do her justice. She will go above and beyond for everyone she comes into contact with. She is genuine and has a servant’s heart. Her love for her job is so evident. She radiates joy and makes you feel like a model in front of the camera. From the first time I met Laura, I knew she was the perfect fit as our wedding photographer. Her personality makes you feel so comfortable, like you’ve known her for years. Through the entire planning process, she was so organized and an amazing communicator. I had the privilege of having her shoot my boudoir session as well as our wedding…and she blew me away with both.  She is calming, joyful, encouraging and caters to your ever need. On top of her awesome personality, her work is AMAZING! I am having the hardest time picking my top 100 favorite pictures because there are just that many great ones. I have had family, friends and vendors all tell me Laura’s photos are some of the best they’ve ever seen! She was the best investment we made and I am so grateful that we chose her as our wedding photographer!

"I can honestly say I never once felt uncomfortable in front of Laura's camera"

Laura is an exceptional photographer. She is able to manipulate lighting (both natural and artificial) in a way that captures dramatic photographs in color and black and white. Her adaptability to any location, no matter the weather or season makes each of her sessions unique and captivating in their own way. Laura has an uncanny way of making you feel at ease which is the biggest fear for so many couples (myself especially) but I can honestly say I never once felt uncomfortable in front of Laura's camera because she gives clear direction and feedback while also making each session light-hearted and true to its purpose (a celebration of LOVE!) My husband and I are Laura Watson photography fans for life. Our pictures are stunning. Laura's response time was such breath of fresh air. Working with so many different vendors for a wedding can be stressful, but Laura was THE MOST reliable, communicative vendor which made us confident in her and her work.

"One of my bridesmaids has already hired Laura for her wedding, because of how much she loved our wedding photos!"

Laura was ABSOLUTELY amazing throughout the entire process! From our engagement session, to our wedding day, she did a wonderful job at making us feel extremely comfortable & beautiful. She's quick to respond to questions, very organized, and you can truly tell she loves what she does. Her excitement is contagious & it travels through her pictures. On the day of, I didn't have to worry about a thing because we already had discussed a timeline, and I was able to tell her which special shots I wanted, as well as which family pairings I wanted for portraits. She's passionate, fun, friendly, and is SO talented. I'm obsessed with how all of our pictures turned out. They're all so bright, happy, and heartwarming. She did such a wonderful job with photographing all of our details. Her pictures tell it all, I would HIGHLY recommend her. One of my bridesmaids has already hired Laura for her wedding, because of how much she loved our wedding photos. You go girl!

"She was more than a photographer on our wedding day, she stepped into the role and became our friend, guide, sister..."

Laura is sincere, and her sincerity radiates through her beautiful personality and the gorgeous images she captures. She was more than a photographer on our wedding day, she stepped into the role and became our friend, guide, sister -- every possible role of support for our wedding day-- she was there for us. She was there to capture moments that were not "front and center," the moments we will cherish forever. She was there to both encourage and cheer us on, every step of the way. Laura engaged us not as clients, but as friends. We felt completely loved and encouraged by her presence! We were floored, not only by the quality of the photos, but by how fast we received our photos! Laura is by all means a professional, her assertiveness and attention to the client is spectacular! Our wedding was the most wonderful day of our lives, and those memories are now immortalized by Laura's talent. Thank you, Laura, from the bottom of our hearts.
