Alaura is the best!

Wow! Truly can't say enough great things about working with Alaura for our wedding. Alaura did our engagement and wedding, along with my boudoir shoot and she absolutely killed it! We are obsessed with her super romanticized style and she totally captured our moody wedding vibes. She was amazing to work with and always made us feel super comfortable in front of the camera and did a great job coaching us in poses. 10/10 would recommend Alaura for all your wedding photo needs! :)

Would Definitely Recommend Alaura!!

We are SO happy that we decided to work with Alaura for our wedding! Her photos are phenomenal and is such a lovely person to spend your wedding day with! I was a little nervous because I can be a bit awkward in photos, but she guided us perfectly for all of our poses and struck the perfect balance of posed but they don’t look too posed!! We would definitely recommend working with her!!
