My experience with Elmo Laing was a powerful trigger of personal memory---from light, to set-up, to processing. By all accounts, he is a meticulous craftsman. Through his eyes and indelible images of my party guests, I am still reliving this momentous occasion ---my 60th birthday celebration. In photograph after photograph, Elmo captured every mood and motion of the affair. He documented the dancing, the band, the striking group portraits, the cake, the room decorum, and of course--ME. His photography has played an important role of constructing memory because the stories leap from their stills. His images are stimulants for remembering---happy lives, families and friends, and what & how we celebrate. I hover over these images! That’s what fantastic photographers do….they show the environment, they show what they saw and they work to compose the best for YOU. That is exactly what Elmo Laing produced for me. Oh, wait a minute, did I mentioned that he is patient, polite, and precise with posing & positioning—a good photographer. Thank you, Elmo for your artistry, storytelling and technical ability.

Wedding and Event Photography
Elmo, you truly are an artist. My wife and I are so impressed by the results of our wedding photos and could not be happier. Elmo was so professional, kind, and talented throughout the entire day. He went above and beyond our expectations as a photographer. He was able to capture a wide range of moments on our wedding day. You can really feel his passion pour out as he works and really made the experience exceptional for us. Everyone family and friends were happy with his cheerful attitude. Would love to have him back for future events and we are so thankful to have had him capture all our wedding memories. Wish I could give more stars.Jul 26, 2018Verified
Elmo is lovely to work with! He was so much fun to take pictures with. He really listened to want I wanted and helped me take photos that reflected my true personality. He let me have a few outfit changes and backdrops - which was great value for the price. He was dedicated to getting great photos I can use professionally for years to come. And this all reflected in the finished product. I love the photos he took! They are fantastic.Aug 19, 2018Verified

- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?I took photography when I was in college, where we worked in a darkroom developing film. Since I returned to this medium in 2012, I have taken several classes which were very valuable in my development as an artist. However it's doing events, headshots, portraits, weddings, engagements etc. where my work has matured.
