Passion is what drives a photographer to start a business. Picking up a camera as a young adult, experimenting, learning, earning degrees, awards and certifications - that was the path that lead me to say: this is my calling.
Hi, I’m Laura - owner, lead photographer, mastermind and pun maker extraordinaire at Andree Photo.
I'm a European wedding photographer bending light and focus on the sunny Gulf Coast. Composition is king when creating an image! Traveling all throughout the US and beyond allows me and my team to find beauty everywhere. I'm not scared of turning day into night and lighting up the sky to rain down twinkles and starbursts on my couples. People state that my work is different and cookie cutter is just not a word in my vocabulary.
I don't just ‘show up’ on a given wedding day. The experience starts from first contact, where we decide if I will be part of your life. A thorough interview process will tell us if we're right for each other. I look for connection between you two. You be you in all your beauty, all your fun and quirky, all your sweet and sensual. Because love is as different as 7 billion people.
We will then start planning the various events you have booked. The engagement session is a two hour photo shoot where we look for great light and combine outfits and locations, then introduce the most important element: YOU. It will give us a chance to get familiar with one another, be casual and easy on each end of the camera.
If props are your heart's desire, my styling eye will transform holding hands at dusk into a delightful magazine worthy table-scape, leading us into enjoying decadent sweets and telling stories of times past and future by the glow of a campfire.
Your bridal portraits are meant to portray you. Alone, in your dress, with professional hair and makeup and a stunning bouquet, we'll create heirloom portraits of you as a bride. It's an experience that empowers and puts you at ease when it comes to your wedding day and allows us to create something truly unique for each and every person.
When it comes to your wedding creative couple portraits, a little direction will go a long way. I'll show you how fun it is to just stumble in one another's arms, laugh and grin while I'm clicking away.
Whether you'll choose a First Look or keep things as traditional and classic as they've been for centuries, in the end, we are there to do one thing and one thing alone.

Blown away by this photographer!
Amazing experience! Laura shot my bridal portraits and the wedding day.
The bridal shoot was like the fashion photoshoot that every girl dreams of, full of glamour and elegance. We met at the Dauphin Island Bird Sanctuary and she and I walked the entire place. I was impressed with her tenacity to keep working, even past sun down, to get the best shots - photos in the forest, on the beach, in a thicket of ferns, with storms in the background.... We did it all. I can tell she really loves the creativity of photography, and her passion shone through that day. You don't work as hard as she does if you aren't fully devoted to your craft. We were exhausted and a bit sweaty in the end, but the pictures were glorious.
Our wedding photos were everything we wanted. I requested her to shoot candid photos of our friends and family in addition to our formal photos, cake cutting, etc, and she did a phenomenal job. We really could not have had a better photographer working our wedding. The entire wedding was a whirlwind for us, so having the pictures to look back on, including events we missed (such as the beginning of the reception), was appreciated and priceless.
Like the bridal photos, Laura truly took her time to shoot my and my husband's couple photos, and we never felt rushed or pressured; in fact, we got to relax into it and this made for a casual and quiet moment in the midst of wedding chaos.
In the end, I received a USB with the high-res photos, a wedding book of photos, and a hand-pulled canvas. Laura got us these items perfectly on time. We get complimented on the photos and the canvas hanging in our living room all the time.
I would recommend Laura to anyone without reservation and I guarantee you'll be blown away by her professionalism and talent.Sent on 10/28/2019

There are no words to accurately convey how pleased I am to have been a part of Laura's professional life. My husband and I stumbled across her Instagram page while we were planning our wedding, and scheduled an appointment with her on a whim. It was apparent within the first 5 minutes that we all had an amazing chemistry together, and after our time with her it was game over for anyone else. She helped us with our engagement and wedding photos, and from a distance - we live in Iowa, and got married in Alabama! She was beyond fabulous about working with our cramped schedules when we were in town, traveled with us to my husband's family's cabin for engagement pictures, and became such a part of our wedding planning experience that I can't imagine doing it without her! If you find yourself here and reading this, do yourself a favor and meet Laura. You'll be blown away by the love she has for people, experiences, and photography. She is a natural at what she does, and I wish everyone could experience what it's like for Laura to be their photographer. I can't recommend her enough!
