BOSTON & CAPE COD

In July, I had a chance to take a mid-summer break and sneak away during the craziness of wedding season to relax and refresh for a week in Boston and Cape Cod. It was such a lovely trip. I just wanted to share a few of my favorite images that I captured on my Contax 645. Thanks to my gal pals for hosting me!

LEAVING ON A JET PLANE…

I’m very excited to announce lots of travel for the month of September. I’m going to be out of the studio from Sept 6-24th. During much of this time, I will have very limited email access and no phone access. First, I’m headed to NYC for several engagements, meetings, and a fabulous Long Island wedding. Then, I’ll be departing for Bulgaria, where I’ll join my husband for a lovely 10 day vacation visiting the parents-, sister-, and grandparents-in-law. We only make it back to Bulgaria once every couple years, so needless to say, we’re ecstatic about this trip! Your patience during this time is greatly appreciated, as we spend every moment with our family, who we see far too rarely. On our way back from Bulgaria, we’re stopping over for a couple days in Paris, before heading back to Minneapolis. I have a brief time to sleep off my jet lag before heading up to Duluth for an amazing wedding that I’ve been looking forward to for over a year!! Yeah, it’s this couple, and it’s gonna be good! (Like, Royal wedding good!)

If you’re a prospective client, I’m so very excited to hear from you, and know that responding to your inquiry will be my top priority upon my return. You can contact me here.

Again, I appreciate your patience during this time! I have several blog posts scheduled while I’m away, so check back often. I’ll also try my best to post updates on my Facebook page and Instagram. In the meantime, feel free to check out our last trip to Bulgaria. Ciao bella!

NEW ORLEANS | FILM TRAVEL PHOTOGRAPHY

I wanted to share a tiny glimpse into my incredible experience in the beautiful city of New Orleans. I really had an amazing time here with my friends, heard some amazing music (including some of my favorite bands, like The Foo Fighters and The Eagles!) at Jazz Fest and cannot wait to go back. Maybe in 2013!






























John Wilson - Gimme the deets!

What film, what cameras? How did you process your B&W film?

Natalie - I see you added the pay phone in there. :P

Christina - So gorgeous! I love that your passion for photography carries over into your personal life.

Jodi - Awesome! Miss it soo much!

Laura - Hi John, all of the images from New Orleans were captured on a Canon 1V. The B&W film is Ilford 3200, and the color is a mixture of Kodak Portra 400 and Fuji Pro 400H. I don’t process my own film, I send it to Pro Photo Connection in Irvine, CA or Richard Photo Lab in Hollywood, CA. Haven’t found a local lab I love yet! Hope that helps!

Mollie - Very neat! Fun to see the little jokes and memories from the trip

CHICAGO ROAD TRIP | INSTAGRAM

In honor of St Patrick’s Day, a small group of friends and I decided to hop in a car, road trip to Chicago and celebrate. Now, I must confess, I’m not normally big on celebrating St Patrick’s Day; I mean, I’m not Irish in the least, and it’s just typically not on my radar, but Chicagoans take this holiday really seriously. Like, really. You can’t help but get in the spirit in this city! We had a good time out on the town and practically everyone we met had traveled to Chicago (from New York, LA) just for the occasion.

It was fun to partake in the festivities, but rather than sharing pictures of people dressed in green, drinking green beer, I want to share little bits and pieces of the city. I love cities and their architecture. Chicago is one of my favorites. I decided not to bring my “real” cameras and instead decided to document the weekend soley using Instagram, the most awesome app ever invented. Are you on Instagram?! Follow me @lauraivanova.

Jodi - Whiskey Tail Foxtrot:) Good times.

sarah wu - looks so fun… and beautiful pictures

LOWER MANHATTAN | WANDERING IN NEW YORK

Happy Friday!! For the past few weeks, I’ve been sharing some personal images that I’ve captured illustrating the streetscapes of New York. I love wandering this city and documenting it on film. Check out past blog posts here, here and here.


















Kendra - These are great, Laura! I love the lines mixed with the grungyness of film. SO Nyc! Also love the crazy cat tag. Great work, as always!
