MARGO & DUNCAN | NEW ORLEANS DESTINATION ELOPEMENT

What a wonderful way to start 2014! Margo and Duncan followed their hearts and eloped to New Orleans. They wanted a special day in a beautiful city to celebrate their commitment. They altered their original wedding plans and decided they couldn’t wait until May to be husband and wife. Their whole day I could feel the excitement! After their intimate ceremony in New Orleans’s City Park with their witnesses, Margo’s sister and her long time boyfriend, by their sides, we explored the city- I could’ve photographed for days- such beauty around every single corner. Thanks to the newlyweds for inviting me along to capture their intimate day.














































kirsten - swooooooooooon! what a way to do it! gorgeous photos & congrats to the couple.

Madelyn - Laura, Wonderful photos!!! You captured the day beautifully! Thank you!

Rex Snodgrass - Margo,

So happy for you and Duncan. Thanks for sharing the great pictures! Good luck for the future. Look forward to seeing you sometime.
Fondly, Uncle Rex and Aunt DeeDee

MONTREAL ON FILM

Montreal is such an amazing city!  I absolutely loved my time there and can’t wait to go back.  It’s an easy drive from Boston or NYC and I roadtripped up with a friend making stops in Vermont along the way.  Late September was a great time to go- maybe just a tad chilly, but decent for touring around.  As always, when I travel personally, I travel light with just my medium format film camera- Contax 645, Fuji 400H film.

SARAH & ADAM | CHICAGO WEDDING

I am in love with every single moment and detail from Sarah & Adam’s gorgeous wedding at Armour House in Lake Forest, Illinois. Sarah & Adam reside in Savannah, Georgia, so I didn’t meet them in person till their wedding day, but I immediately felt welcome by the couple and their amazing friends and family. We had a perfect summer day and the guests enjoyed an outdoor ceremony and cocktail hour before heading inside for the reception where Sarah wowed everyone with her stunning red reception dress.

Big huge thanks and lots of hugs to my amazing friend, Yazy for shooting this wedding with me. Yazy is half of a husband/wife photography duo based in Chicago, and I jump up and down with excitement every time I have a wedding or shoot in Chicago, because it means I get to hang out with my dear friend and her family.













































Thanks to the vendors who made this day so perfect:
Venue: Armour House
Florals: Lake Forest Flowers
Wedding Gown: Pronovias
Bride’s Shoes: Kate Spade
DJ: Toast & Jam

Kelsy McCartney - What an absolutely stunning couple & celebration! Her dress and the soft romantic color palette with slightly punchy florals are just beautiful!! LOVE!

Emma Stenzel - Stunning work, Laura!

NANCY & SETH | TRAVELING AROUND CAPRI

While on the island of Capri for Seth & Nancy’s wedding, we took an afternoon to further explore and capture a few more casual photos around the island!









Seth & Nancy - We love you! Nancy and I were literally jumping up and down with excitement AGAIN! Just beautiful, and we cannot thank you enough for everything. We’ll never get tired of telling you that, btw!

Kristen - These Capri images are probably some of my favorites yet! I love the colors, textures, composition, and of course the cute couple. :)
