Five stars are not enough. In four simple words, Laurie saved our wedding. When our photographer cancelled with less than a week before our wedding, I sought out to find a replacement on Thumbtack who could not only do it last minute but for our budget. After sifting through many talented photographers on this site who bid on the job (and several who could not do the job but were willing to help me find one), we selected Laurie. The reasons are many. First, she was incredibly responsive to our needs during the negotiation phase, jumping on the phone with us right away to discuss our style, needs, and hopes for our photography. As a former photojournalist, she understood our desire for the photography to capture those great candid moments that evoke the spirit of the moment. She was a pleasure to work with during the day of, quickly working with us, our massive families, and the cold to get all the photos we needed. She was always there to get that perfect shot, yet not intrusive at all. She quickly turned around the photos and within a month we got extraordinary photos that even a month later we can't stop looking at. It was like reliving the wedding all over again. There is simply no better choice than Laurie.
