I honestly don’t think I could have arranged a more beautiful wedding than these two did. After driving an hour out into the wilderness (I joke… kind of) we reached a little lakeside town full of B&B’s. The wedding took place in the backyard of a family friend and what an amazing backyard it was! A giant willow tree with a wooden swing, Edison lights strung all around, and of course it backed immediately onto a peaceful lake and mountain range.

With Covid, weddings are still fairly small and intimate, and I love watching the interactions of friends and family in these smaller ceremonies. Some clients are just clients, but with some I want to be adopted into their friend circle! This wedding felt like the latter. It was a truly perfect day and evening <3. Here are a few highlights!

Hi! I’m Laura, a coffee-loving, outgoing introvert with a passion for motherhood and photography. This blog is an extension of who I am. I’m a mommy to three little boys, and I love to create and write. I’m also loud, tend to over share, and am a type-A personality in the extreme. I’m a little pensive and can be a lot sarcastic.  I believe that motherhood is something more than just to be survived! This is both a space where I share glimpses into my business and the photo shoots I do, and also my personal space to just write about whatever is on my heart. So grab a cup of coffee, come stay for a while and let’s get to know each other. 🙂
