congratulations

You're Engaged

awesome!

& that is

weddings are so much more than saying i do

They are a chance to laugh until you cry, to run and jump into your husband’s arms because you are too excited to walk, to yell from a mountaintop that you are the luckiest person in the world, and to whisper sweet nothings while you two sneak away to watch the sunset.

You spend so much time preparing for your wedding, and you deserve a photographer who understands how unique and special your love story is. And someone who will create photos that are just as magical as your love story!

congratulations

The

L&A

Experience

My ultimate goal as your wedding photographer is to make sure you get to experience your amazing wedding day! I don’t want you focused on details or poses - I want you focused on snuggling with the man of your dreams, the tears in your dad’s eyes as he walks you down the aisle, and the champagne giggles your bridesmaids get as they dance the night away.

Before the day arrives, we will work together to plan out your perfect day, so we are totally in sync before the wedding. Not to mention we will have an awesome engagement shoot going to breweries, sitting under the stars, or anything else you can dream up!

By the time the wedding day comes around, I’ll just be that friend who happens to be wicked good at capturing your love on camera! (And wears a fanny pack full of batteries to your wedding!)

Feel awkward in front of the camera? I got you!

Your engagement and wedding photos should capture who you are as a couple, so I will talk you through your best poses and direct you in some totally goofy ways to keep you feeling natural and confident in front of the camera. And there is a 100% chance of a mid-photo shoot dance party!

how it works

Here's What the Process Looks Like

step 1

Contact Me

Wedding dates fill up fast, so contact me ASAP to see if your wedding date is available. Please use the form below and let’s schedule a time to chat.

step 2

Consultation

Whether it’s by phone or in person, I want to learn more about you, your partner, and your wedding vision. Join me for a hot chocolate (or a cold beer?) and let’s talk deets!

step 3

Welcome

After finding that we’re a perfect fit (I knew it!), all I will need to lock in your wedding date is a signed contract and a deposit. I’ll proudly be your camera-carrying third wheel!

step 4

Engagement

Engagement shoot time! Let’s capture some photos of you two doing something fun together - kayak trip? Brewery game night? Camping adventure? I am in (and will help you plan!) for anything you’d like to do.

step 5

Timeline

Planning the wedding day timeline may not sound that important, but it’s what can make the difference between a hectic, stressful day and a laid back, relaxed one. Which is exactly why planning wedding day timelines is MY JAM. I will help with it every step of the way!

step 6

Wedding Day

It’s your wedding day! I will be there with bells on (well, with cameras actually) to capture every laugh, tear, Champagne toast, funky chicken dance, and all the personal moments that you’ll want to remember for years to come!

the best part?

The wedding isn’t the ending of your love story but just the beginning

My

Approach

I’ll do whatever it
takes to get the perfect shot

I have photographed more than 150 beautiful weddings and consider myself to be a fine art lifestyle photographer, which simply means I want to capture every playful, romantic moment! I shoot a combination of classic, romantic shots as well as light-hearted, candid moments that capture the true essence of your best day ever.

The last thing I want is for you to feel awkward during your photos, so I will help every step of the way to pose you in ways that are natural and comfortable. But, more than that, I will keep you guys moving and interacting and playing together for portraits that look authentic. (And are actually fun to take!)

It’s pretty common to find me climbing trees, crawling on the ground, or shooting through bushes on the wedding day to create amazing images.

I only take 15 weddings per year to be able to be able to give 100% to each one of my amazing couples, so contact me today to be one of them!

You're my

perfect

bride if

You want to spend a few minutes of your wedding day sneaking out to run off into the sunset.

You don’t mind if your dress gets a little dirty.

You love a good “that’s what she said” joke (or a bad one for that matter!).

You can’t wait to have your love story told in beautiful photos.

The moments of your wedding day are more important than the items.

Laura takes every aspect of her work to the highest level, and I cannot thank her enough for everything she has done for us

Her genuine excitement for her work showed through her conversations and in person during our engagement shoot and wedding day. She went above and beyond to ensure we got every photograph we were hoping for....I was blown away with the artistic and stunning way she captured every moment of the day. Not to mention her attention to detail exceeded all of my expectations.

Choosing Laura as our photographer was one of the best decisions we made for our wedding!

If you want someone easy-going who will make you comfortable AND give you the best wedding photography service and experience possible, Laura is your girl, no question. From the moment we started communicating, I knew we were in the best hands possible; it was like we were old friends, and I trusted her completely.... I don't think I could have planned out the day without her guidance and wisdom.... Laura is incredible, I feel like I've found my "photographer-for-life", and cannot wait for the next time I get to request her incredible services.

I am not even sure I have the words to describe how amazing our photos turned out! 

Laura did an absolute AMAZING job. Not only were the pictures amazing, but she made it fun. My husband and I tend to be awkward when we get photos taken, but she made us feel comfortable. I HIGHLY recommend Life and Art Photography !!

Frequently Asked Questions

Do you do boudoir photography?

don't you do boudoir photography?

Heck yes! It’s one of my absolute FAVORITE things, so much so that I created an entire website just for that. Check it out! 

What is a timeline consult?

What is a timeline consult?

A wedding day timeline can either make your day stressful or a total breeze, and we definitely want it to be a breeze! A few weeks before the wedding, we will sit down and talk through the day to make sure there is time for absolutely everything you want to do on your wedding day, including some wiggle room in case anything gets behind. That way, when the day comes, you’ll have nothing to do but relax and enjoy it!

What do you mean when you say coverage includes “the whole day?”

What do you mean when you say coverage includes “the whole day?”

When I was planning my own wedding, I had no idea how many hours of coverage I would need. 7? 8? 25?? But we also didn’t want to try to fit more things into a small number of hours and stress ourselves out running around on the day. As your photographer, I don’t want that either! I will start an hour before you put on your dress and stay an hour after your first dance, and we can fill all the time in between any way you want.

How many photos will we get from the wedding day?

How many photos will we get from the wedding day?

The good ones, all of the good ones. You can expect about 75 photos for every hour I’m shooting. But don’t worry about the numbers; I’m going to get you every good image I possibly can!

How soon after the wedding will we receive our photos?

How soon after the wedding will we receive our photos?

Four weeks. Just think, in a month you’ll have your full wedding gallery. Pretty neat, right?

Do you do wedding albums?

Do you do wedding albums?

Absolutely! They are one of my favorite parts of wedding photography because they tell the complete story of your day so well. Email me and I will include the album options.

We don’t need all-day coverage. Is there another option?

We don’t need all-day coverage. Is there another option?

Definitely! I can create a custom package for you; just include the details of your day in your initial email, and I will send over some options.

Do you travel?

Do you travel?

Um...heck yeah! I travel between Honolulu, Denver, and Minneapolis regularly, but there is nowhere in the world I won’t go to. My bucket list still has plenty of places just waiting to get checked off, like Iceland, Alaska, Australia - I could go on forever!

Do you take the drone to every wedding?

Do you take the drone to every wedding?

Almost always! I absolutely love epic drone photos, but there are regulations to when and where it can be flown. During our consult we will discuss locations where we can safely bring it out.

Do you use the drone during the ceremony?

Do you use the drone during the ceremony?

Not usually. The drone is kind of loud and a little distracting for guests, and I want them to be focused on what really matters: you! It is definitely better during portraits. But if you want it during your ceremony, just let me know!
