I booked Don for a hindu wedding ceremony and also for a mehendi party. He was outstanding - he was friendly( great interactions with my family- they felt as though he was a friend). He captured all the main events and got some great family portrait's. It was a pleasure to have him at my events and his pictures were beautiful. He is also very lenient with his time. It is great hiring someone who has a passion for photography and truly enjoys what they are doing. I would highly recommend him for any event.Apr 20, 2015Verified

Don is the best! I absolutely hate having my photograph taken but needed a professional shot. Don was extremely patient with me and his warm personality will put you at ease. He has a great eye and excellent editing skills. I would highly recommend him.Apr 10, 2019Verified
Don is an amazing photographer. He is extremely professional and polite. Don captured the very emotion we were looking for in my daughter's senior photos. He experience, suggestion and technique is truly special. He allowed me to view the photos as he was taking them and was extremely patient, taking the time to show me the effects of every change. He made my daughter very comfortable in what she thought would be awkward. The quality of the photos and poses are very important and he exceeded all expectations! I will absolutely continue to use Don. I am already planning to schedule my next shoot!!May 7, 2019Verified

- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?I've been a photographer and artist since I was in grade school. I've been a professional studio and event photographer since 1990.
- How did you get started doing this type of work?Back in the 1980's, I started selling computer photography equipment for a company in NYC. After a couple of years I bought my own computer photography set-up, and started doing "Photo-Favors" at parties around the NYC Metropolitan area. I would take pictures of guests at parties and putting them into assorted frames, key chains, magnets, etc., for the guests to take home as a favor from the party. I also did many school and corporate events. My company was known as "The Party Animalz", and I had several crews of people working for me, and we did multiple parties every weekend around the Metropolitan area. Many clients liked my photos so much, they started asking if I did studio photography, because they wanted to hire me. In 1990 I took the plunge, and added studio and event photography to my business, and so "Don Laurence Photography" was born.
