When I look at the photos she took of our wedding, I can feel the feelings I felt that day: joy, excitement, and love. I am SO GLAD I picked Laurel as my wedding photographer.

She was the absolute best to work with when it came to Marcus & my wedding. She is flexible, the ultimate hype woman, and completely ON TOP of it when it comes to helping you plan out the wedding day timeline and getting pictures back to you.

Thank you for the outstanding experience and photos. You gave us what we wanted and more! Your warm personality soothed any awkwardness I thought I would have. Your artistic touch brought more life to the photos than I could have dreamed of.
