I'm a Minneapolis based engagement and wedding photographer who believes that the story your wedding day creates has value and deserves to be told. I feel passionate about documenting all that you feel and experience at your wedding. I want you to look back at your images and remember how you were feeling.
My approach to photography is very relational. I understand that you are letting me into an intimate day with all of your family and friends and I find a lot of value in that. Getting to know you and your significant other is so important to me. I want to know what you appreciate and love about the people in your life so I can serve you with powerful, heartfelt images. Getting to know each other also helps build trust so you can breath easy with me attending your wedding and trusting me to document what is meaningful to you.
Through the wedding planning process I will be available to help create a timeline, give tips on when the light is best, send vendor referrals, grab cocktails to catch up, and just about anything else you need help with.
I love working with couples who care about each other and the people around them. Whether you are getting married in a forest or at a unique venue in the city, I would love to be a part of it. If you feel moved at all by my images and have a heart for beauty in simple things, let's get together.
I live in Minneapolis with my husband and our twin boys. You can find me exploring breweries and coffee shops and falling for the city silhouettes across the river. I love retreating North to feel refreshed and inspired by the tall pines, evergreens, and those deep greens and browns.

Laurel did an amazing job with our pictures for our wedding! She responded very quickly to questions, met with us before hand to make sure she knew exactly what we wanted! She got our photos back to us very quickly and they are gorgeous. Her pricing was also very reasonable. We highly recommend her!Sent on 09/23/2017

We were absolutely over the moon with Laurel, from our first communication to receiving our photos. We hired her for engagement photos at our house, photos of the rehearsal dinner, and ten hours for our wedding day. She is a total sweetheart to be around, which is exactly what you want during such special moments. For our wedding day, she brought along an assistant Rachel who was also lovely to be around. That in itself was huge, but my god, the photos. Laurel's photos are for real absolutely amazing. We keep joking that we are so overwhelmed because now we have 500 favorite wedding photos. She listened to what we asked for and followed our list of photos expertly. She gave posing advice when it was needed, which was SO helpful after hours of taking photos, but she would also go along with ideas and suggestions we gave. She was AMAZING and we were so happy she was a part of our special day.Sent on 10/17/2017
Laurel is creative, fun, and takes really awesome photos! She's a hard worker with amazing integrity. She actually cares about you as a person and makes you feel like the center of her attention. I know she brings this same mentality to her shoots. Highly recommended!
