Joyful photos for intimate, rustic weddings

hey friend!

I'm Laura

If that's how your planning is going, congrats! I think you're the only person ever. Maybe you thought planning a wedding would be easy and fun, but you've been surprised by how hard it's actually been. Have you had any of these moments?

"It's going to cost how much?!"

"You want me to invite who? I have no idea who that is!"

You want your wedding to be amazing but you recognize that it's only one day and you don't want it to cause a ton of stress and drama.

You don't want a huge production. You don't want to compete for the trendiest colors, biggest cake or the most guests.

You want to be surrounded by only the people and things that make you the most happy and forget about the rest.

You want the focus to be on the commitment you are making to each other, not on attempting to make 200 people happy.

I get that, and I'll be more of a friend than a vendor, working with you to plan a stress-free timeline and making sure your wedding is set up so you get the most out of your day and your photos.

I'll capture all of the joy and the little moments you don't want to forget. Afterwards, I'll work with you to create a beautiful, leather Story Book so you never forget how you felt on your wedding day, and you're not left stressing out about what to do with your wedding photos.

I just planned a wedding myself and I know it can be overwhelming. I'll be there with you every step of the way and be your biggest cheerleader!

You're engaged! You got the ring, the guy
and now you're planning a wedding!
It'll be great!
Full of laughter, unicorns, & rainbows!

"If I could give 6 stars, I would! Laura was absolutely amazing throughout the whole wedding process--she offered advice, planned things out, and was so receptive to my family's many wants. We could not have asked for a better photographer and person to have with us on our special day!"

-David & Linnea

 She did an amazing job at listening to us and identifying what we consider the important things, and determining how to capture that. On your wedding day there is so much chaos and time management that it is easy to miss those little moments. Laura did an amazing job in capturing not only the special significant moments, but also all of the little things that happened. Things we will look back on and laugh about for many years to come. Laura will meet and exceed any expectations you may have for a wedding photographer. Her eye for detail, creativity, and warm personality make her a solid addition to your wedding.

-Max & Patra

Laura tailored everything to match and compliment our vibe.



 She was extremely helpful as far as answering questions, being open to suggestions, and very punctual.  She created our stunning story book, and it perfectly captures precious memories of our wedding that are irreplaceable. We can't thank her enough!

-Mitch & Becca

Laura's photos really
showed our day perfectly!

WOW! Laura is absolutely amazing! As a wedding planner, she is one of the most organized photographers I have worked with and really understands the timing of the day. She is an amazing person with a heart of gold and her work truly reflects this. She captures some of the most gorgeous photos. I highly recommend her.

-Angie with Hart & Sole

She goes above and beyond to make her clients feel so very important!
