You’re engaged and navigating one of the busiest seasons of your life. You’re planning for a very special day - not only your wedding day but the first day of your marriage!

You’re doing lots of research, sifting through vendors, and honestly, you’re feeling a bit overwhelmed by it all. Who do you choose, and how do you know who you can TRUST on such an important day? Someone who shares your vision + has your best interests at heart?

I’m here to tell you that you can find the right photographer! For every couple, there’s a ‘right fit’ for a photographer. One who understands you, gets your vision, and cares about putting YOU first on your wedding day. As a recent bride myself, I can help to guide you through this busy, exciting time.

hello, I'm Laurelyn

Is photography one of your top priorities for your wedding day? If so, we’re on the same page; your images are the only thing that remains of your wedding day once the dancing is finished and your cake has all been eaten. If you place a high value on your photography and the entire experience surrounding your photos, we share that vision!

YOUR PRIORITIES

ABOUT MY COUPLES

BACK

Do you want to have amazing, timeless images from your wedding day without sacrificing the whole day for photos or feeling like you’re in a photoshoot? Me too, I want you to feel relaxed, completely yourself, AND enjoy as much time as possible with your guests who all came to celebrate you! Your time is very valuable. Especially on your wedding day.

BACK

You’re not 100% (or really at all) comfortable in front of a camera, and you’re unsure of how to look natural. You’re not alone, most people feel that way! I work very closely with my couples + provide directions, but also allow space for the candid un-posed moments to happen all on their own. My idea of fine art is combining those guided portraits with all of the naturally occurring moments of your day.

Do you want to feel relaxed + fully present wedding day? Looking for high quality, personalized attention on your wedding day that sets you at ease and allows you to relax + feel taken care of on the wedding day? I work with a very limited number of couples each year to ensure that I get to know my couples on a personal level + provide them with a tailored, luxury experience so they can be fully present.

my why

the heart behind what i do

Simply put, I work with couples who can't imagine not having wedding images that you love. Not simply to have them, but to remind you of WHY you got married in the first place, to remind you in the hard times as well as the happy times, where your marriage all began. All of those small moments as well as the big moments of your wedding day will be fully documented.

You're deeply rooted in that love and commitment for each other, and that's why I document weddings -- to preserve that first day of your marriage so you can pass on those images as heirlooms to the generations after you. Some of the happiest moments of your lives will live on forever because you're choosing to hire a professional wedding photographer.

Our marriage makes what I do even more important. Beyond just a pretty wedding day, I believe more importantly in a strong, lasting marriage - a partner to lean on and to give all my love to each day. My husband is a musician, the chef of our home, and daddy to our fur baby.

MY HUSBAND

Almost any kind of tacos, and a bonus if they come with a side of guacamole and sour cream. My favorite local spot is Bel Air Cantina, but the best tacos I’ve ever had were in Puerto Vallarta. To my husband's dismay, I usually ask him to make tacos at least once a week.

TACOS

I’m most comfortable at home. Counting my blessings, staying  organized (more or less), and having a warm + inviting home are all important to me. My home is mostly filled with Apple products, West Elm pieces, and Madewell/J.Crew clothes in shades of neutral colors.

favorites

CREATING A HOME

While I love being home, I also love exploring this amazing planet and experiencing new places, food, and cultures. Some of my favorite areas I’ve visited include: Mexico, Grenada, and Southern California. Next on my list, this fall, are Seattle and Charleston.

favorites

TRAVEL

Camping, hiking, yoga or an evening on the patio. Any place I can soak up some sunshine or take in beautiful views makes me feel refreshed + recharged.
