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. :)

Meet adorable Anne-Marie!! Anne-Marie is an amazing photographer from Ottawa, and we met at a photography workshop in Mexico! Over the years, we’ve kept in touch via social media and recently discovered that we both happened to have destination weddings in Italy at the same time. We made plans to meet up on the beautiful island of Capri, and though our travels only overlapped by about 24 hours, we managed to squeeze in a quick photo session. I even snuck her hubby in a few photos, possibly against his will! (Thanks Harold!) Anne-Marie is an incredibly fun-loving, outgoing, kind person and she gives awesome hugs! She’s the kind of person that immediately puts you at ease and makes you feel you’ve been friends forever. It was so exciting to see her on a new continent and to meet Harold!

  • Kelsy - What a beautiful smile and gorgeous setting for a session!!! I just love how WARM & full of life these images feel – Fantastic job (as always!) Laura!! :)

  • Anne-Marie - Thank you for these gorgeous photos Laura. It was wonderful spending time with you in Capri and getting to be photographed by one of my favorite photographers :) xoxoxo Anne

  • Mary J - Beautiful photos. Just love them. I know Anne-Marie and you have done an great job of capturing her essence — warm, fun and genuine!!

I just adore Michelle & Conner! Can we just take a minute to admire how sweet they are together? (And, how extraordinarily stylish they are?!) Michelle & Conner met as graduate students at Columbia University, so it was only fitting we do their engagement session in the city where they met and fell in love. We started on the Upper West Side and made our way down to Madison Square Park, finishing our sunny evening together with a very unhealthy, but delicious dinner at Shake Shack. I can’t wait for your big day this fall!!

  • Helgi - beautiful as always!

  • Miranda Williams - Gorgeous! Love the outfits they chose. The colors work great with the blooming trees.

I absolutely adore Gina! She is someone I consider myself very lucky to know and to call a friend. She has an amazing heart & soul, and is so compassionate. She gives so much to others through her photography and her motivational work. I love Gina’s aesthetic and was so excited when she asked me to capture images for her new website. (Go check it out immediately!!) I love how Gina styled her session and the crisp, white, outdoor location she chose.

  • Jenna Leigh - Amazingly beautiful – images and Gina! :)

Meet Kirsten & Carlos, and their adorable pup, Thor! Seriously, Thor is too cute- I wanted to take him home and cuddle him. So sweet! I also happen to think Kirsten and Carlos are super sweet! We started their winter e-session at Moose & Sadie’s, then headed to Centennial Lakes, the very spot where Carlos proposed to Kirsten. I can’t wait for their May wedding! (I’m really hoping winter will be over by then.)

  • kristen drufke - Are. You. Kidding. Me! That has got to be one of the cutest little puppies I have EVER seen! I definitely agree that I would also want to take him home for a cuddle.

  • JOSE LUIS YAÑEZ CASTELAN - Brizzia y yo les deseamos los mejor de lo mejor, están muy bonitas las fotos también el nuevo integrante de la familia Thor-nillo , un abrazo muy fuerte.

  • Kelsy McCartney - What an adorable couple, and their puppy too!!! Do you know what kind of pup Thor is? Reminds me of a little guy I know ;) GREAT images, Laura!! And how much did you love Kirsten’s fur & sparkly earrings!

  • Lucha Castelán - I wish with all my heart the happiness you show in these pictures remains forever and I’m sure it’s not only because of the puppy, right? It’s cute your brave guardian (”)and U2 look gorgeous!! Un abrazotototote!!

  • geneoh - THAT PUP! The seventh image down is like the greatest thing ever.

  • Urška Majer - This are gorgeous :)
