ENGAGEMENT sessions

engagement sessions are included in all wedding collections and are available as an add-on for all intimate wedding collections.

engagement sessions give us a chance to hang out prior to your big day so you can get comfortable in front of the camera as well as know what to expect when it comes to posing and how I shoot as a photographer.

your engagement session photographs are yours to use for save the dates, social media posts, and prints for family and friends.

Laura, they are so amazing. You captured the entire day so well and looking back through them makes me feel like I am back at that day! WOW!

I am at work and keep finding myself looking at them while I should be doing something else. THANK YOU SO MUCH!

I feel like I owe you the biggest thank you in the entire world but I don't know if that would even be enough. I know what you do isn't easy and you absolutely have an eye for photography. Truly outstanding!!

Laura recently photographed our wedding and we couldn't be more thrilled with our photos! The pictures are phenomenal & Laura was so much fun to have around on our big day! She made us feel comfortable and it was obvious Laura is passionate about her work! If you're looking for a talented, professional, personal, and fun photographer - Laura is the best! Highly recommend!

Laura and her team are the absolute BEST to work with! Not only was she so sweet and fun the day of the wedding but she was helpful, organized, and ON IT! As a wedding planner, it took a load of pressure off knowing that Laura was more than capable of helping the Bride & Groom have a perfect day and create amazing memories to look back on for a lifetime. I would highly recommend using Laura for any photography needs and can't wait to continue working with her in the future!

We love Laura! She is so fun to work with and awesome pictures so it wasn't a hard decision to pick her for our engagement and wedding photos. We loved them and we love her!
