SARAH & ETHAN | MINNESOTA WEDDING ON FILM

Sarah & Ethan are the such a beautiful pair- inside and out. Seriously, their hearts are just overflowing with love and joy and I feel so lucky to have spent the day with them, documenting their story and their first day together as husband and wife. So many incredible vendors made this day possible, but I wanted to give a special thanks to Sarah’s sister and matron-of-honor, Nicole, of Prestigious Petals. Her work is absolutely stunning.

































Helgi - This is amazing!!!!!!

TIFF & THOR | LONG ISLAND WEDDING ON FILM

Tiff and Thor were married at the gorgeous Jedediah Hawkins Inn in Jamesport, NY. I hadn’t met Tiff & Thor in person prior to the wedding day, but they immediately felt like old friends since we’ve been Facebook friends since I shot Tiff’s friend’s wedding in 2008! Tiff also happens to be a portrait photographer based in North Carolina, and we’ve followed each other’s work over the years. Tiff & Thor wanted to host an intimate celebration with their closest friends and family and they couldn’t have had a more perfect day. They looked so happy and the details were so much fun! As usual, I found it nearly impossible to narrow down the photos since everything was just stunning. Thank you SO MUCH for including me in your celebration, and a special thanks to my friend Amy of Amy Rae Photography for driving up from Philadelphia to photograph this wedding with me!










































 

Amy - SO BEAUTIFUL!! I am sure they are so happy with the photos!! All your photos turned out amazing!! Thanks for having me Laura!

Jessica - Laura I love this!! Gorgeous venue, lovely chalkboard details, and the ribbon kids are too cute! Beautiful!

Amanda - So happy for Tiff and Thor and so excited that you were able to capture their day! I totally understand why she wanted the best photographer to fly half way across the country to photograph her wedding! Beautiful job as always, Laura.

BRIDGET & MIKE | NYC ENGAGEMENT ON FILM

Bridget and Mike got engaged on the steps of the Lincoln Center when Mike surprised Bridget on a whirlwind weekend getaway, so it only seemed fitting to have their engagement session in the city that holds so many special memories for them. You  might not be able to tell from these photos, but we experienced the wackiest weather ever on the day of their session. It downpoured all morning, causing us to postpone until the afternoon. Then we we did start shooting, the temps were soaring and the humidity must’ve been about 99.99%. THEN, as we finished our session on the Brooklyn Bridge, a storm quickly rolled in and tornados touched down in Brooklyn. Literally. We scampered off the bridge to run for cover and the very second we found shelter, the downpours started again. So, it’s safe to say that Bridget and Mike are total troopers and up for anything!  In between location, weather and wardrobe changes, we stopped for drinks in an air conditioned dive bar we happened upon in the West Village (we had to, it was seriously so hot!) and later, we enjoyed cupcakes! Bridget and Mike, I can’t wait for your wedding next spring!

















 

Amy - Awesome as always! Even with the threat of a rainstorm! Great work Laura!

Mary Jean Hertig - Totally Thrilled with how wonderful this happy couple looks!!! Very nice photos! I cannot wait for the WEDDIN!!!!

KATELIN & JOE | JAMES J HILL LIBRARY WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHY

Katelin & Joe have the biggest hearts!! I could write a novel about them (appropriate since Katelin is an English teacher and they were married in one of the most beautiful libraries of all times!), but I’ll keep this short and sweet and just share some of my favorite images from their gorgeous day. There were so many fabulous details but since I’m already bogging down your internet browser with a abundance of images, I tried to rein it in as much as I could. Enjoy!!












































Jen O. - Incredibly lovely wedding. I adore the venue and all of the soft blush tones. You captured it beautifully.

Ellie Kilgore - Laura~
Thank you so much for the absolutley breathtaking photos you took of my daughter Katelin’s wedding to Joe! Words cannot describe how beautiful they are to me, especially since I was not able to absorb so much of the day with all the activity of being the MOB! You took our garage/occasional sale finds/decorating and made them look wonderful with capturing the colors and delicate details! Yes, the James J. Hill is a spectacular venue, but it takes a skilled photographer to work with the unique lighting challenges and make things so splendid! You captured my daughter’ s sweet heart and soul and for that I will be forever grateful!
Love And blessings to you!
Ellie Kilgore

Abby Jacobsma - Laura,

These images are beautiful! I was so happy to be a part of Katelin and Joe’s wedding and you just did an absolutely fabulous job capturing their joy and love for each other. As a bridesmaid, you made all of the photo taking so fun, easy, and enjoyable. Your photography is just stunning.

Kind Regards,
Abby Jacobsma

Caroline Held - Laura, your pictures are absolutely stunning! You truly captured their infectious joy, and that makes these images so meaningful. Thank you for all you did during the big day! – Grateful sister

Sean - Absolutely beautiful! And what a location, oh my gosh!

Beth Jarrett - Hello, My fiancé and I are getting married on September 12, 2015 at James J Hill Library. We saw your photos from a previous wedding at that venue, and we really liked them!
Are you available on our wedding date? What is a ballpark price for a typical wedding package? We look forward to hearing from you.
Thank you!
