OUT OF TOWN | MEXICO & FLORIDA!

Adios dearest friends! I’m headed out of town from Saturday, November 6 through Sunday, November 14. My first stop is Mexico for the Jose Villa Workshop. Oh yeah, I’m so excited! I went to Jose’s workshop last fall in Italy, and it changed my life. My business has improved and changed is so many ways and I met some amazing friends who I connect with practically every day. Like, we plan reunions all over the country, and email, and tweet, and Facebook, and Skype. These ladies are amazing, but more on them coming after our Chicago reunion in early December! :-)

Many are probably wondering why I’d go to the same workshop again… well, there are many reasons, but the main reason is that I’ll be shooting exclusively in film this time around! I’ll definitely be blogging a workshop summary and images, so watch for that in coming posts.

After the Mexico workshop, I fly straight to Jacksonville, Florida to second shoot a wedding with my awesome friend, Melissa, who I met at the Italy workshop last year! Pretty cool, huh? Melissa came up to Minneapolis over the summer to shoot Anne & Noah’s wedding with me (which was featured on Style Me Pretty!), so I can’t wait to work with her again. I’m also excited for warm weather, friends, relaxing, learning and shooting a ton of film! Many blog posts are sure to follow.

While I’m gone, I will not have telephone access and email will be delayed. Thanks in advance for your patience!

xoxo,
Laura

PS- Just because blog posts are boring without pictures, here are a few of my favorite shots from Italy last fall!

Amy - too bad gio isn’t going to be in mexico…will you be bringing a cute spanish senor to wppi this year?

Melissa Schollaert - These photos make me smile. Can’t WAIT for Florida and to see you! Wow, I’ll see you twice in a month! Woohoo! Have a blast in Mexico chica! Adios y buen viaje!

Amanda - I can’t believe that was a year ago already! Congrats on all you’ve accomplished thus far. Looking forward to what you’ll do after this workshop! Oh, and that last pic has always been one of my favs. It looks like they’re standing in front of a watercolor background!

Tricia - I’m so jealous-Jose Villa’s workshop’s look amazing! Can’t wait to see your film images when you get back–your ‘eye’ is simply stunning!

MEG & PAT | ENCHANTED BARN WEDDING

Oooh, please excuse the extra long post, but I absolutely adore this so-in-love couple and their beautiful wedding. I guess it’s the small-town girl in me, but I love barns, nature and rustic farm weddings! M&P incorporated so many special, handmade details and everything about their wedding was picture perfect. Megan & Patrick are teachers and how cute was it to incorporate a school bus into their wedding day?! But, even more importantly, beyond the details, it’s always fun to work with a couple that is so head-over-heels in love! It was my first time shooting at the Enchanted Barn in Hillsdale, Wisconsin and I can’t wait to have the opportunity to shoot there again. What an incredible venue!

Thanks to M&P, their friends and family and vendors for a wonderful wedding day!

I LOVE NY!

I recently traveled to New York City to celebrate a friend’s birthday. Being the lady that I am, I won’t mention her age, but it rhymes with “dirty.” Anyway, since it was going to be a girls trip and I wouldn’t have my hubby around to carry my gear like I often do when I travel, AND inspired by fellow photographer/friend Jose, who made me travel to Florence, Italy with only one camera, I decided to pack light, brining only my favorite film camera.

Enjoy!

























Images captured on a Contax 645 with Fuji Pro 400H film.

 

helgi - stunning!!!…and you know me now, so shoot me an email and make your dream come true!! XOXO

Nicki - Hi Laura, love the photos! I’m a fellow Minnesotan turned Brooklynite, I’d love to hear any NYC photo plans you have, or if you need any rec’s on the city I’m happy to help. Glad you enjoyed your trip!

natalie - hoooooly crap I love these!!! Especially the black and white chelsea markets pics. And the one of us jumping turned out amazing!!! Let’s go back tomorrow!

Tiffany - Gorgeous! What is with the large pile of white shoes? Also the black flower dress(?)/romper(?) is adorable! :)

geneoh - amazing. love the color!

John Sharpe - Love these Laura, so jealous of your 645 and that you just took the one camera on your trip. I need to do somethign like that. BTW, what was with the white shoes…really liked that shot! Still haven’t been to NYC…need to get there.

Emily S - Love it! I totally want to visit NY.

Laura - Thanks everyone! The white shoes were adhered to a wall in a shoe store… a giant glob of decor/shoe art! Very cool!

@Emily & John- yes, you need to get to NYC

Stacy Able - ahhh gorgeous again but this time in film!! beautiful stuff Laura and looks like it was a super fun trip, too :)

Jyll - Ahhhhh!!! Laura…these are fantastic! It looks like you had a wonderful time capturing the city that never sleeps. Wonderful work lady!
