The cobblestone streets of Charleston are always charming. So when Taylor and Rich requested the French Quarter as the backdrop for their engagement photos, I gave an easy yes.

Engagements

Schuyler and Joseph chose the Taylor Grady House in Athens, Georgia for their wedding celebration. When I arrived, I immediately noticed how the morning light hit the historic columns of the home.  I love wedding mornings for this reason – the light is soft, and the day feels calm with anticipation. This was the sweetest […]

Merry Christmas from Laura Watson Photography!

Behind the Scenes

This is where I love sharing recent weddings and sessions, my travels, and life with my husband, and our three pets. When I'm not capturing a wedding day, I'm often enjoying the outdoors with Garrett, playing with our pups, or finding a new place to call home for the weekend. My passion is telling love stories, and I hope I get to fall in love with telling yours.

Let's meet!
