I love the way you capture these beautiful moments between couples, friends and family. I am really drawn to your overall aesthetic of photography and how candid but yet elegant and beautiful it is.
"Laura Ryan and her fabulous team were by far the most outstanding people to work with on our wedding day. I had obsessively looked at Laura’s work while researching who I could possibly trust with what I consider to be the most important investment in our wedding day. As an art and photography teacher, I know how picky I can be! We were able to meet Laura before the wedding where she told us a little bit about herself and her work. We got to see some finished wedding albums and monopolized her time talking about everything from Depeche Mode to etsy. She is an incredible artist and it is obvious when viewing her outstanding photographs she’s simply the best.
We decided to go with Laura the instant we booked the Old Field Club. She was in contact with me throughout the planning and even wrote out a wedding day time line for me while we discussed where we would be shooting throughout the day…which I can say is priceless because she made me feel comfortable knowing she cared about our wedding and capturing our unforgettable moments.
Now for the day of the wedding! She was so full of energy and passion it made us so happy she was there. She takes control and can direct you during certain points of the day where you want the posed shots, but she also is not intrusive in any way. For the candid shots it feels like she is part of the family…you know she’s there and getting the shots you want, but she just blends in. She is a true professional and I feel so lucky to have been able to have her and her team."

"This past August, Laura shot our wedding in Central Park as well as our reception the next day. She was a fabulous photographer in every way. Very professional and attentive and easy to work with. Even better were the photos we got just a month later. We loved all of the special moments Laura captured, the smiles and laughter and people engaging with each other. The images were natural and spontaneous. Even for our posed portraits she managed to capture the "in between" moments, when people were looking their happiest and loveliest. We can't say enough wonderful things about the photos and are so happy we chose Laura because now we have amazing keepsakes of our wedding weekend for years to come. Thank you Laura!!!" - Alina - NYC
"We contacted Laura only one month away from our wedding in need of finding a photographer quick, since ours basically bailed on us. Laura was immediately professional, friendly, and responsive. On the day of, she jumped right into action, no frills, bells or whistles, which we loved since we were sort of running late, and all day she had a very professional demeanor. She was exactly how you would want your photographer to be: a fly on the wall capturing all the best moments; I barely even remember seeing her! We got 4 photos as previews a few weeks after the wedding, and about a month and a half after, we got the full set. There are something like >1500 photos and they are ALL INCREDIBLE. They have such a raw, genuine feel and we are blown away by the quality. The biggest complaint we have is that there are so many good photos and it has proven REALLY difficult to go through them all and choose a selection for an album, posting to Facebook, sharing with friends and family, etc. But this is obviously a good problem to have. We would hire Laura again in an instant and recommend her to anyone! "- Tria - Long Island
"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

Dear Laura, You have no idea how happy you have made me. I just received our wedding album, and was paging through it elatedly. I knew it was going to be nice, but I didn’t fully appreciate just how amazing it would be. You are an exceptionally talented photographer, and your layout and editing made the pictures all the more phenomenal. Thank you so much for doing us the honor of being the photographer at our wedding. We knew you would do an awesome job, and you have exceeded our expectations in every way. Thank you so much and please know that we will always be happy to serve as a reference for you for many years to come. We truly appreciate you and your commitment to your work.

“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!

“Thank you for shooting such gorgeous pictures of our wedding. I can’t stop staring at them! You were wonderful!” Fondly, Jackie & Justin
“One of the many things that caught my attention was how similar some of your pictures were to the pictures that we were sent by our guests (of course yours being far superior). It amazed me that you were able to tap into what the day was about, what we’re about and it was so similar to how those who love us viewed that day as well. There were little touches with photos that I absolutely love: the address on the door to our home – old numbers, weathered brick and chipped paint, the kids peeking out through the storm door window, and of course, the picture taken from outside during the reception that must have been when you were leaving. It’s of the picture window and through it you can see the glowing light, people dancing and drops of rain streaking the glass, simple, yet so perfect and the perfect end to a perfect day. We are gushing and will recommend you to anyone and everyone we can for any important occasion that deserves to be remembered with absolute honesty, professionalism and some damn good pictures. ” Sincerely, Nancy - Long Island
“All the pictures are great although I have to say that my favorite one is still the black and white ‘blurred’ one of Sansai and I kissing on the staircase – the one you sent a few days after the wedding…I LOVE it. I check your blog every now and then and your pictures continue to be gorgeous and unique.” Take care. ” Corinne” The pictures turned out beautiful and everyone complimented on how you went out of your way to get “the shot”. We absolutely loved your work and cannot wait to use you again in the future. Thanks again and we’ll be in touch soon! ” – Sara and Sean.
