    How do I begin to describe what a phenomenal job Laurel did on our photographs? Every single detail was captured, and her professionalism and work ethic were unparalleled. Laurel went above and beyond what was expected at every stage. My other friends getting married are SO jealous of our pictures, and I love telling them about Laurel and how amazing she was. I was a little nervous since I was planning an out of town wedding, but Laurel made the extra effort to meet with me as many times as I requested even a couple days before the wedding to walk the grounds and go through the timing and lighting before the big day. She didn't even laugh at my itinerary that was broken down in 15 minute intervals. She showed up on our wedding day at the hair salon before we did, and stayed with the bridal party the whole day capturing the most amazing pictures of the entire process. Even though Laurel lives two states away, I don't think I can use anyone else for my photography needs. I will gladly travel to her for all our future professional photographs! Laurel is the absolute BEST!

Q&A

What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
I am constantly getting e-mail subscriptions from digital school of photography, I often shadow or assist other photographers who have been in the profession for quite some time and learn from them. Photography is definitely a hands on profession so most of the learning that happens in the field is from trial and error. Also, at least once a year I try to take part in a photography bootcamp or class to keep my skills sharp.
How did you get started doing this type of work?
I have always loved to be the person taking pictures. In high school I was blessed to take a photography class and from that moment fell in love. I love being able to be a part of helping people remember history.
What types of customers have you worked with?
My most common types of jobs include: engagement sessions, weddings, family portraits, and seniors.
What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?
Research, research, research. Make sure that the photographer you are looking for provides the type of work that you want to see hanging on your wall every day. Each photographer has their own unique things to offer and making sure they offer exactly what you want is a huge key to having a successful product.
What questions should customers think through before talking to professionals about their project?
Being a photographer is not simply having a nice camera and taking pictures. Being a photographer is taking the time to capture exactly what the clients want to remember and it is definitely more than just having a nice camera. It is art.
