Hi I'm Laura !
I am an award winning wedding and elopement photographer.I started my business in 2006 on Long Island, NY. I absolutely love my job and the creative challenges it presents as I work to visually compose your wedding day story.
I have extensive training in the fine arts with a BFA in Art History, Photography / Masters in Art Education that has led me to develop a meticulous yet unobtrusive photographic style. I consider my photography a careful blend of an artistic and journalistic approach that documents the important facets of you and your wedding. I create attention with energy, emotion, and color that make your day especially beautiful. I will make sure to capture the tiny, delicate details you worked so hard to put together for your special day, as well as the unique and wonderful moments you have with your guests. My staff and I will work hard to make your wedding day photo experience comfortable and enjoyable.
While I am not photographing weddings or teaching photography in New York. I extensively travel the US taking road trips and loved visiting Europe to study art history. My home is in Seaford, NY where I live with my Husband Keith, Daughter Rowan , Son Rory and my dog Luna.

LAURA!! I can not say enough thanks for your professionalism, creativity and calmness on the day of our wedding. My parents, my bridal party and family all loved you and had nothing but nice things to say. You and your team were great and I am on pins and needles to see what you shot. Please extend my gratitude to your assistants for holding up my dress, holding my water and helping with the little things. You were so easy to work with through the whole process and my favorite vendor :)”
"Laura is someone who can really adapt to any day or situation and find wonderful alternatives when things don't go quite as planned. What also makes her a great photographer to work with is that she is just a very nice person who wants to make the bride's life as easy as possible throughout the crazy planning process. She's extremely talented and I'm so very glad to have hundreds of images that I just love to look back on and smile. " - Alina NYC
“We can’t THANK you enough …Clearly you have a “creative eye” that is surely a gift and we were blessed to have you as part of our special day! If you think of it, send me a bunch of your business cards as I will be honored to share them with family, friends and business associates. Will keep in touch…”
