“The wedding-planning process is a series of decisions, and I can say with confidence that choosing Laurelyn as our photographer was the single best decision we made along the way. We found Laurelyn through photos she’d taken of another wedding at our venue, the Schlitz Audubon Center in Milwaukee. Her images won us over on our venue, so we knew we wanted to book her to capture our wedding day.
From the beginning, Laurelyn was easy to work with and made us feel like we were in such good hands. She traveled down to Chicago, where we live, to take our engagement photos—and even brought us a bottle of wine! The engagement session gave us a chance to practice poses, and Laurelyn was a natural at giving clear direction and helping us laugh along the way.
Months later, as our wedding day was approaching, Laurelyn helped me pull together a timeline for the day—something that was not required of her nor was technically her job. We was so incredibly grateful that she was willing to go the extra mile to help us out with that aspect of the planning process. She even attended the final venue walk-through with my mom and wedding planner to scope out prime spots for photos.
When you book with Laurelyn, you’re not just getting a photographer who shows up on your big day—you’re getting someone who truly cares about the process and is willing to go above and beyond for her clients.
When our wedding day rolled around, Laurelyn and her assistant were there every step of the way—from getting ready in the morning to hitting the dance floor that evening. She’s calm and collected, which totally rubbed off on the bridal party and our immediate family, allowing us to feel like we could really enjoy our day. We knew she was in the background catching every single special moment and detail.
We recently got our photos back and we’re so over the moon with her view of our wedding day. She was able to capture elements of our wedding that we didn’t even get a chance to see. Beyond that, she made us look and feel amazing. For my husband and I, photos were one of the most important pieces of the puzzle, and looking back, I honestly can’t imagine going with anyone other than Laurelyn. Beyond being a wildly talented photographer, she’s professional, kind and willing to go a step beyond the rest for her couples. Thank you so much, Laurelyn!”
