On WeddingWire since 2014

I love my job.

You have spent months planning the perfect wedding day. You have meticulously curated every tiny detail in order to create the most epic celebration of all time.

When the day finally arrives you are going to be caught up in a whirlwind of excitement, emotion, family, friends, toasts, and dancing. You will probably start the day with a few butterflies in your stomach and end the day feeling like you are on top of the world. Whether your ceremony involves three hundred people or just you and your beloved, your day is going to be amazing and I want to be there to document all of the joy, love, beautiful details and all of your hard work.

Don't be surpirsed when I respond to your inquiry with some questions. I love what I do and investing in the people I work with is a huge part of that. Getting to know couples and creating a body of work that reflects THEIR style and personality makes this whole process more fun and, in the end, more rewarding for my clients.

Laura is great! She really tries to get you know you on a deeper level, when I first reach out she sent a huge questionnaire which I loved! She is so flexible, which was perfect. Our wedding was in Vermont and we are living in Colorado. We were able to coordinate meeting up when we visited in May. We met at a beautiful location and she took soo many more photos than I thought we’d get back! They were all incredible! Her questionnaire for the wedding day was perfect! Fast forward to wedding day, she arrived promptly when we agreed on and got right to work! Guests loved her and she did such an amazing job! We had our first sneak peak picture at 7:30 the next morning! We loved working with Laura!

Meet Your New BFF - Laura Swoyer

If you want someone who will feel like an old childhood friend - who wants to know you as an individual and a couple - who will fit in seamlessly as one of your biggest cheerleaders on your big day - and who will take beyond amazing photos to boot?

May we introduce: Laura Swoyer. Probably the kindest, yet professional, human that we had the absolute pleasure of having be our photographer. We spent weeks emailing back and forth to get to know one another, for her to learn about our story and us as individuals and a couple, and then spent time on the phone planning our engagement shoot.

We spent a sunny winter day tromping around in the snow in Monadnock State Park laughing and twirling around on a frozen lake and in the trees. Her ability to capture pure unadulterated joy and candids is truly unmatched - while simultaneously having the photos be beautiful and professional.

Our wedding day felt like something out a fairytale - and honestly, thank goodness we have Laura's photos to prove is actually happened. From start to finish - Laura was a beam of positivity, kindness, humor, and professionalism - from perfect candids of laughter, happy tears, and my many faces at my new husband - to photos of each of our tables with us and our loved ones - to a photo she somehow was able to take that included all of our wedding guests (!) - to sneaky twilight photos that are so breathtaking we can't believe it's us...

If you want your new best friend to photograph your wedding and to cherish each and every photo as its own memory - look no further than Laura Swoyer. She is the ultimate gem.

Amazing Day despite surprise weather!

We could not have found a better person to photograph our wedding. Laura was amazing when interacting with family members who were not familiar with the wedding process, and with those who knew a lot about weddings. She blended seamlessly into every interaction and was so friendly and helpful the entire time. We ended up having a change of plans last minute due to the weather, and she managed to get us all together to take different sets of photos with very limited time. She got photos that we didn’t even realize we wanted and was great with communicating during the process. She went above and beyond to make sure we were not stressed and the day proceeded smoothly. Our photos turned out so beautiful and “us” and our day genuinely would not have been the same without her. Thanks Laura!

Since the actual wedding ceremony goes by in a blur, the pictures for the memories for the bride and groom ... Laura was stress-free, and we we're able to work together to endure both a seamless ceremony and outstanding pictures. - Stephen Laurie, VT

I worked with Laura earlier this summer at a wedding in Vermont. While I didn't see the final photos, I noticed how professional and organized she was at this event. I noticed how great she was not only with the bride and groom but also with the guests.
