So in love with our wedding photos!

I cannot describe how wonderful our experience with Laree Photo was from start to finish. If you are looking for a wedding photographer, you could not possibly do better than Stephanie! She was organized and arrived early. She was relaxed, professional, and made everyone feel at ease. She is a true artist. We are in awe of the photos. We also did not have to wait long to receive our previews and just a few weeks after that, we received our whole photo collection with hundreds of photos. We are so grateful to have chosen Laree Photo to capture the memories our wedding!
