ADORABLE ANNE-MARIE | CAPRI, ITALY

Meet adorable Anne-Marie!! Anne-Marie is an amazing photographer from Ottawa, and we met at a photography workshop in Mexico! Over the years, we’ve kept in touch via social media and recently discovered that we both happened to have destination weddings in Italy at the same time. We made plans to meet up on the beautiful island of Capri, and though our travels only overlapped by about 24 hours, we managed to squeeze in a quick photo session. I even snuck her hubby in a few photos, possibly against his will! (Thanks Harold!) Anne-Marie is an incredibly fun-loving, outgoing, kind person and she gives awesome hugs! She’s the kind of person that immediately puts you at ease and makes you feel you’ve been friends forever. It was so exciting to see her on a new continent and to meet Harold!







Kelsy - What a beautiful smile and gorgeous setting for a session!!! I just love how WARM & full of life these images feel – Fantastic job (as always!) Laura!! :)

Anne-Marie - Thank you for these gorgeous photos Laura. It was wonderful spending time with you in Capri and getting to be photographed by one of my favorite photographers :) xoxoxo Anne

Mary J - Beautiful photos. Just love them. I know Anne-Marie and you have done an great job of capturing her essence — warm, fun and genuine!!

BROOKLYN BOTANIC GARDENS

A few weeks ago I visited the Brooklyn Botanic Gardens for the very first time so I could scope out photo locations for an upcoming summer wedding. It was nearly the perfect time, as the cherry blossoms were in peak bloom. I visited on a afternoon that forecasted rain, so the gardens were quite empty and I was able to enjoy a few quiet hours wandering around and taking pictures on my favorite film camera, just for fun.  Lucky for me, it didn’t rain a drop ’til after I left.  I think this will be a beautiful spot for wedding photos. Enjoy!






Urška Majer - Looks like a really beautiful place :)

Kelsy McCartney - What a beautiful place! I would be in absolute heaven here, coffee in hand :) Gorgeous images, Laura! The purple flowing over that wooden pergola is SO pretty!!

Butch McCartney - Beautiful pictures Laura! Your colors are so good!

Kristen - Wow! What a beautiful place! It looks so dreamy.

MICHELLE & CONNER | SPRING IN NYC

I just adore Michelle & Conner! Can we just take a minute to admire how sweet they are together? (And, how extraordinarily stylish they are?!) Michelle & Conner met as graduate students at Columbia University, so it was only fitting we do their engagement session in the city where they met and fell in love. We started on the Upper West Side and made our way down to Madison Square Park, finishing our sunny evening together with a very unhealthy, but delicious dinner at Shake Shack. I can’t wait for your big day this fall!!










Helgi - beautiful as always!

Miranda Williams - Gorgeous! Love the outfits they chose. The colors work great with the blooming trees.

BEAUTIFUL GINA

I absolutely adore Gina! She is someone I consider myself very lucky to know and to call a friend. She has an amazing heart & soul, and is so compassionate. She gives so much to others through her photography and her motivational work. I love Gina’s aesthetic and was so excited when she asked me to capture images for her new website. (Go check it out immediately!!) I love how Gina styled her session and the crisp, white, outdoor location she chose.










Jenna Leigh - Amazingly beautiful – images and Gina! :)
