DESERT STYLED SHOOT WITH SCHEME EVENTS

Earlier this year, I traveled to Las Vegas to attend a photography convention, and while there, had the opportunity to work on a styled shoot with the amazing team at Scheme Events.  They are wedding planners serving the Vegas area and beyond, and they are so incredibly talented and creative.  We had previously teamed up on a shoot, so when discussing their vision for another styled shoot, I knew it would be a fun opportunity to work together again, be creative, and meet new vendors.

The shoot was recently featured on Style Me Pretty.  You can check it out here and read more about Scheme Events’ vision for the shoot.  Thanks to all the amazing vendors involved:

CAPPADOCIA, TURKEY | TRAVEL FILM PHOTOGRAPHY

Welcome to region of Cappadocia in Central Turkey!  Several years ago, I read about this magical place, famed for it’s otherworldly landscape and hot air ballooning.  I immediately put it on my travel bucket list, and this spring I was lucky enough to visit this unique area of the globe.  We stayed in a cave hotel, rode on the most incredible hot air balloon adventure at sunrise, drove ATVs, tasted local wines, and enjoyed delicious Turkish food- perhaps my favorite cuisine of anything I’ve ever tried.

{This trip was part of a month long adventure across Bulgaria, GreeceIstanbul, and Russia.}

CHRISSY, JAMES & HERO | BREEZY POINT NEW YORK ENGAGEMENT

I had such a fun time with Chrissy, James & their pup, Hero!  We started their session in Brooklyn at the Brooklyn Heights Promenade, then headed to the couple’s hometown of Breezy Point, New York, just outside the city for photos on the beach.  We arrived at the perfect time and the sunset was beautiful.  I seriously didn’t know this little slice of heaven existed so close to NYC- it is absolutely stunning, and a perfect summer night (albeit a bit windy!).  Thanks to the lovely couple for the amazing session- I can’t wait to be back in October for the big day!!

CARLY, TIM & MOLLY | TAYLORS FALLS ENGAGEMENT

Carly & Tim are getting married!  Carly is a fellow photographer (check out her lovely work on her website!) and when she reached out to me, I was so flattered and humbled that she wanted me to document her and Tim’s engagement and wedding! Carly has such a great eye for fashion and styling (and really anything creative!!) and I knew their engagement session would be perfection! When she told me they chose Taylors Falls as the location, I was even more excited.

Carly and Tim are truly the sweetest couple.  Gorgeous inside and out.  They are so affectionate towards each other and give the best hugs!  They aren’t afraid to get a little silly! Not to mention that they have the cutest little boxer pup, Molly!  I have a soft spot in my heart for black and white dogs, and if Molly’s good looks don’t win you over, her disposition certainly will!  I had so much fun spending the evening with these three exploring the bluffs and chatting about the wedding, home decor, DIY projects, and more.

Counting the days till the big day!

Jody Savage - These are gorgeous! Love her style and long hair!!

Carly LaVigne - Laura! .. My goodness! These images could not be more perfect! My heart is so overwhelmingly filled with joy right now! I am speechless. What a perfect way to start off my week! (Could I use any more exclamation marks to get my excitement across?!!!)

I cannot thank you ENOUGH for capturing such beautiful moments between me and Tim (and Molly)! .. the bug bites and humidity were well worth it! :) These images are a perfect display of our relationship and who we are together. I cannot wait to put them in an album and up on our walls so that we can live in these little moments over and over again, every day; What a beautiful reminder.

We are so blessed and thankful to have you as our photographer.

xo.

Helgi - Omg, this couple is a typical “Laura” couple, the Dog? SO cute!!!!
