    Laurie was the best photographer and words can not fully describe how she made our wedding day, but I will try! From the minute she got there she had such great ideas for pictures, which was great for a very nervous bride. She put myself and husband at ease. We had a small ceremony and reception( which we planned ourself from the timing of everything to the music) and even thinking that we had everything covered, there were still things we didn't know which is where Laurie went above and beyond. With her knowledge of weddings she was able to help us cut the cake and worked so well with our families. I am still getting rave reviews from everyone about how amazing she was. I would definetly suggest Laurie to photograph your wedding because she made our day even more special!!!

    Laurie was the perfect choice for our wedding photographer! Not only is she a sweet person but she also is very talented and had such great ideas! The groom & I loved her, as well as my friends and family! Can't wait to see the edited pics! I'll be returning to you for newborn pics, in about a year, hopefully!

    Laurie was great, she was immediately responsive to requests and jumped at opportunities to grab that great shot, She had a great personality and helped pull out the Smiles in everyone in the photos.

    Laurie from Folks Fotos was an awesome photographer. She got the basics of course but also captured those rare moments that will last a lifetime. SHE WAS PRO MT DEPENDABLE AND PERSONABLE. SHE FIT RIGHT IN WITH OUR FAMILY EVERYONE FELT SO COMFORTABLE WITH HER. Did I mention her price was wonderful . I'm a dying kinda bride ...okay so I'm cheap..... but you couldn't tell by the quality of work that I received by laurie. I'd recommend her anytime. She doesn't know it yet but she's my new go to photographer for ever.

    She did a quick christmas session at a vendor show. She was very nice and professional and has some of the most creative pictures ever. She is also very reasonable. I will definitely use her again for future family portraits.

    Laurie is a great photographer and wonderful person. She is laid back, not pushy at all, and great at getting kids to smile! She also takes the time to listen to your wants/needs. Not to mention her prices are phenomenal! You will not be disappointed!!

  • 5/5 stars February 28, 2014

    She was so fun to work with! I was a little nervous at first as I don't normally get professional pictures taken, but as soon as I met her I was comfortable around her. She had great ideas for different photos and even worked with the ideas my fiance and I had given with the location we were at. Can't wait until she photographs our wedding later this year!

  • 5/5 stars February 28, 2014

    Laurie was so awesome to work with. She did such a great job with our outdoor family photos, they looked so wonderful I had a hard time choosing the ones I wanted to print. She worked so well with making my daughter comfortable. Great photos at a great price I will never go anywhere else for photos again.

    Laurie is great to work with. She has great inventive ideas and used ours as well. Great pictures from the shoot and lots to choose from. She helped turn our special day into a very memorable one.

  • 5/5 stars February 25, 2014

    We visited Folk Foto's for the first time a year ago for my daughter's 1st birthday pictures. Laurie was so patient and understanding, my daughter was not the easiest to photograph (she's not fond of strangers). But Laurie did an amazing job, and the photos turned out great! We will definitely be returning for my daughter's 2nd birthday photos!

  • 5/5 stars February 25, 2014

    Laurie Folk came to our home to photograph my pregnancy and our new born son. She took the time to get to know us personally so she could capture who we truly are as a family. Photographing a new born can be difficult but her patience and talent made it a relaxing and fun experience.

  • 5/5 stars February 25, 2014

    Laurie does awesome photographs. Our daughter is so hard to photograph and she got awesome shots of her and made her feel so comfortable. I would recommend her to anyone cause she is good at all she does. She truely is inspirational.

  • 5/5 stars February 25, 2014

    Shes great at integrating herself into your family. It was so comfortable being photographed during my wedding, and the reception. She catches great moments, and put together the most beautiful album. I will absolutely be using her for anything I need photographs for in the future. She is also very well priced for all the photos you get. I would defiantly recommend her to friends and family!

  • 5/5 stars February 25, 2014

    She takes the time to interact with my kids. She has really creative ideas and always makes sure to get some smiles. She allows as many changes as necessary to get pics the family wants. She is even willing to meet at a sight!

  • 5/5 stars February 25, 2014

    Laurie was wonderful. Not only took magnificent pictures but helped out where ever she was needed. Took a lot of different type of pictures, not just standard poses that you normally see.Would recommend her work to everyone

  • 5/5 stars February 25, 2014

    I've known Laurue for years... So it was a no brainer who my husband and I wanted as our photographer at our wedding when we decided to get married. She's got such a major passion and dedication about her work which makes her truly the best. She's very easy to communicate with and does everything in her power to make your special day (whatever it may be) the best it can be! She goes above and beyond which is one of the many qualities that makes her so unique. Her photography keeps getting better and better every time I see it! .... And her prices are hard to beat! If you choose Laurie I promise you won't be disappointed!

  • 5/5 stars February 25, 2014
