I photographed my first wedding by chance, a serendipitous request by a friend. I was immediately pulled into the magic of this career and into serving people on such an important day in their lives. Years later, I consider photography to be a career that chose me. It's one that I love and that fills me with purpose: to preserve my clients’ love stories for generations to come.

About Laura

When my camera isn’t in hand, you’ll most likely find me planning my next adventure with my husband Garrett (our own wedding was a destination event in Hawaii) or snuggled up at home with my mini dachshunds, Guinness and Piper. My favorite things are those that endure - relationships, quality heirlooms, and simplicity that allows authenticity to shine through.   

I believe that careful planning 
creates the most authentic images.

That may seem like a contradiction at first glance, but what I mean is that intention allows us the space to feel at ease and to capture moments in front of the camera where you feel most yourselves. As both a right-brained artist and a left-brained detail lover, I approach every wedding with careful attention to timelines and efficiency while also keeping an eye out for the spontaneous moments that just can’t be planned for.

I want to stop time: to capture the moments that will serve as a reminder of your love story and the day you promised forever to each other. To preserve how it felt to dance underneath twinkle lights, laugh with your loved ones, and remember how at home you felt on the day you said "I do." To provide you with a tangible reminder of what matters for the times when you need it most.

My heart & vision for every lWP couple

Printed photographs are special

My couples want their wedding day memories to take up physical space in their lives, not just megabytes on their phone. Whether in an heirloom album on their coffee table or in carefully hung frames adorning their bedroom walls, your wedding photos are a tangible and prominent reminder of the joy and togetherness that define the day you say “I do.”

There's nothing like good food to bring everyone together

No matter the meal - wine and charcuterie, margaritas and guacamole, or coffee and scones - the best conversations happen over good food. I love getting to know my clients over a coffee or lunch date: just name your favorite place and we’ll cheers to all the celebrations to come.

Travel Makes Life Exciting

Seeking new experiences and diving into new cultures is the best way to expand your horizons (quite literally). I’ve had lots of adventures - from kayaking the Mo'oliki islands in Oahu to sunrise Safaris in the Maasai Mara - and I’d love to hear what locales have stolen your hearts.

Simplicity Will Never Go Out of Style

I’ve heard elegance described as “making the most impact with the simplest approach possible.” My couples want their wedding days - and their lives - to feel easy, uncluttered, and authentic. 

How They Feel Comes Through On Film

My couples want to feel comfortable in front of the camera - they know that the experience of being together in front of the lens is half the fun. I strive to create an environment where you can feel relaxed and in love, an ease that will help make each final image a new favorite.
