My name is Laura
and I am in love with what I do.
I get to capture your Happily Ever After and your memories for a lifetime, from every laugh to every tear.
I am the lucky one who gets to tell your love story ... and...I get to do this with my very own Prince Charming, partner in crime, my husband and second shooter Dan.
We are two photographers who love to capture honest, real moments as they naturally unfold, that are only orchestrated through the emotions that you feel and that we see as your story - those true candid moments. Our commitment to you is that we will capture your love story so that, 50 years from now, the memories are just as fresh, vivid and as exciting as the moment in which it happened.
I love spending time
with our two
Iago and Desdemona
I love to travel and experience new places with my husband...along with some ol' favourites...like Paris!
Fairy-tales, rom-coms, or just great movies like Casablanca made me hold out for my very own Prince Charming!
My Dad and brother taught me how to play guitar. I love every kind of music and find that it makes me feel relaxed
Putting on tunes and then lounging in our hot tub with a nice cold glass of champagne or a proseco with lime.
I love to spend as much time with them as I can and make, along with capture, as many memories as possible.
Engagement Sessions are included in every package for a reason. I believe the best photos you will get for your wedding day are those that are comfortable and relaxed ones. So the best way to achieve that is to ensure you are comfortable with me and each other in front of a camera.
These sessions are a great way for us to spend time getting to know each other and how we all work together. What makes him laugh and you cry, is someone significantly taller than the other, who wins at games and who has the worst singing voice out of us all. Basically it is a time to have some fun and get some great pictures along the way.You will almost forget I am taking pictures during the session.
I highly recommend having them done early enough before the big day so you are not stressed in trying to fit it in.I also suggest when picking a location that it is somewhere comfortable, a place you would typically go on a date. It will immediately make you more relaxed and enjoy the moment more. .
We don't just capture weddings we also love to shoot:
Destination Weddings (see next page)
We love everything to do with taking beautiful imagery no matter what the subject is. We love to have fun during our sessions and not take anything too seriously. We will laugh, joke, dance and sing during a session to get you and your little ones to laugh or for you to feel comfortable in your lingerie. We want your personality to just light up while in front of our cameras.
Mini sessions are sent through email with hi-resolution images while a full Portrait Sessions includes a USB with your fully edited images
We love destination weddings and have photographed in England, Dominican Republic and Mexico.
We do require that the flight and accommodations for the Photographer be arranged and paid for by the client. As a result of this we attempt to level this out by significantly discounting destination weddings from our regular wedding rates.
Our destination wedding packages offer full coverage on your wedding day and a complimentary “Trash The Dress” Session on the day (or one of the days) following the wedding along with one "outing" with you and your guests - whether that's a meal, a catamaran ride or a volleyball match on the beach etc.
The cost for the coverage of your destination wedding begins at $1200.00.
You walk away from this experience with all of your images provided digitally in high resolution and on your own custom USB.
Q: How do I reserve you for my date?
A: All dates are reserved once we receive your signed contract and deposit
Q: How many images do you typically deliver from and engagement session? From a wedding?
We typically deliver anywhere from 40-60 images for engagement sessions and for weddings we typically deliver 50-80 images per hour.However, you are NOT limited to that.
Q: When will I receive my photos?
A: Typically 2-4 weeks after your e-session (weddings usually 6-12 weeks depending on the time of year), and provided to you on your branded USB. Pictures will be professionally edited, and all in high resolution. I will usually post a sneak peek photo of the session on my website and/or Facebook page within 48 hours of your session.
Q: What camera's and lenses do you use?
A: We both have Nikon Full Fram bodies and have backups for both of us. We have 70-200, 24-70, along with some great primes 85, 50, 35 and a macro lens' along with our flashes, ice lights and more.
When we discovered Laura, no one put us more at ease than her; we knew immediately that she was the right choice.
Laura’s calm, friendly and organized approach made the day stress-free. She even requested and remembered the names of all of our immediate family members.
Laura captured our art-deco wedding perfectly in both colour and black and white.
In reality, you spend your wedding day with two people: your spouse and your photographer. We could not be happier we chose Laura to spend that crazy, wonderful day with us."
We were so impressed with Laura's artistic flare, punctuality, her photo finishing and processing time for our engagement session that we hired her company for our wedding as well. We now have a gorgeous set of both traditional and fun wedding photos that capture the beauty of our special day.
Laura helped us let down our guard and have a ton of fun during our engagement session and our wedding. She was highly creative both in regards to poses (but not really) and locations.
We are very happy we had Laura with us to capture the special memories from our destination wedding in Punta Cana.
Her enthusiasm, flexibility and how quickly she got to know our family and friends was amazing. Laura made it so much fun for everyone that we forgot we were having our photos taken and we were thrilled with the way all the pictures turned out.
We particularly enjoyed the "trash the dress" photo shoot.
From the first meeting with Laura we were impressed! We enjoyed a relaxed engagement session and Laura learned the little quirks of my fiance, especially on how to make him smile with out feeling "posed"!He in the end with Laura's help not only smiled but laughed during the session.
Our wedding day itself was beyond any fairy tale dream and Flashes was there every moment of the day capturing every laugh and tear!!!! From the getting ready photos, our first kiss to our first dance and the party pictures at midnight we are so lucky to have had our day captured in such a special way. Thank you to the moon and back Laura and Dan!
Flashes provided a complete, comprehensive service without a limit on how many times you could communicate with them or how many photos you would receive.
We appreciated their professionalism which was balanced with an approachable yet very friendly style. They were extremely prepared and efficient, but warm and engaged with us. We felt so relaxed.The photos are beautiful and capture every candid laugh, hug, and tear.
Anyone who has met Laura for even the briefest moments knows that you feel instantly at ease with her; this allowed her to take some of the most outstanding, candid shots of us, some of which I could never have imagined seeing. Laura has the ability to capture even the most fleeting tender of moments to those big laughs. Not to mention that we had the most fun ever working with her.
I was so grateful for Laura's professional and calm manner. Despite being with us all day, she was unobtrusive but still managed somehow to organize us, our friends and relatives to get the shots we had asked for.
