All prices listed are for the Central Valley which includes Modesto, Ripon, Turlock, Riverbank, Oakdale, Escalon, Atwater, and Merced.
Areas outside of these will receive a $0.50/mile travel fee.
Please be sure to make it clear to me in your initial contract email and let me know the reason why. I market my photography services on the internet and through social media so this is crucial for me to bring in additional clients. If you do not want your images online, a fee will apply.
I no longer offer wedding packages but I do offer elopement packages! For elopements, I offer up to 4 hours of coverage, and the maximum number of people in attendance is 30. I only offer up to 15 elopements a year so that I can give my utmost attention to each one.
Please post images everywhere but don’t re-edit the photos. From the moment you hire me as your photographer, you are not simply paying me to show up with my camera, but for the magic that happens afterwards. I spend hours carefully editing and retouching each image I send you. By editing the photos I have sent you, you are completely stripping the image of my signature style, which is essentially why you hired me to begin with.
No, but I promise you are getting the cream of the crop! Don't worry, I will trash all of the double chins, half blinking faces, and mid sentence talking. The photos you will be receiving are the most perfect, candid moments of laughter or tears!
No one knows where we will be in a few weeks and months, but due to COVID I am offering free rescheduling to all clients that have booked with me. I am taking all measures necessary including sanitizing and washing my hands frequently, staying 6 feet away from people, and getting tested on a regular basis. Should you have any concerns about your session, just reach out! I'm happy to help answer any questions you have!
I love to travel throughout California but I do need to cover the time it takes to travel from my hometown as well as the wear and tear on my vehicle. Elopements over 45 miles from Modesto will be charged a travel rate of $1 per mile.
I do! Studio sessions are offered in my residence's warehouse and I can accommodate up to 2 people maximum so only couples or individuals! You can choose up to two different color backgrounds and will receive 70+ images within 2 weeks!
I definitely recommend booking an engagement session! This way, it gives all of us an opportunity to meet each other and get a feel for being in front of the camera. Your session will last between 1 hours at 1 location and includes 2 outfit changes. You will receive a final gallery of 100+ images within 2 weeks.
Your session date is confirmed on my calendar with a 50% retainer and a signed contract. The remaining balance is due at least 1 week prior to your wedding date. Elopements are typically booked between 3-7 months in advance. It is not uncommon to receive multiple inquiries for the same date. I book first come first serve so if you are set on my services, book sooner rather than later!
In just a couple of weeks after your session, you'll get an email from me with a link to your beautiful digital album! You can purchase prints directly from the site or download them and print yourself.
After some thought out planning, we get to shoot your session! This is where it all comes together and the magic happens.
Once you submit your inquiry, I will send you my availability! Choose a date and pay a 50% retainer to secure your date.
“We were super nervous about taking photos and Laura made us feel so comfortable! She was an absolute breath of fresh air to work with and have at our special event, she was amazing and collaborative with us and a great director. The photos turned out better than I truly could have ever imagined. I won't ever use another photog again and would recommend her to anyone!”
"Laura was overall amazing. From the beginning she was professional and kind. During the photo shoot she was very nice! She did a great job balancing between directing us and letting us do our own thing. We had fun and felt comfortable being ourselves in front of the camera. I would hire her again and recommend her to others!"
“Laura is super friendly and did such a great job making us feel comfortable. We were blown away by the photos from our shoot, her use of color and shadows is very impressive.”
"Laura was absolutely fantastic - punctual, professional, and caring. We recently had an engagement shoot with her and couldn't be happier. Not only was her work amazing, her turnaround time was super quick (her words "I love editing!") and the quality was superb. We wouldn't hesitate for a second to recommend her to our loved ones.”
“Laura did some headshots for me and was super fun, professional and easy to shoot with. She does a great job of putting people at ease and getting them to open up, which always makes for the best photos! I absolutely loved all the photos she took (and she took a lot!) She allowed for multiple wardrobe changes, she experimented with the scenery and lighting, and overall was relentless in the pursuit of shots we both 100% loved. Laura was also quick with the edits and the finished photos were stunning."
"Laura is so so fun to work with because shes able to gauge the setting and lighting so effectively so that every photo taken is beautiful. My friends and I took our college graduation photos with her and got over a hundred gorgeous, edited photos back. She was so sweet and so patient with us and all of the different poses and photos we wanted to take. Seriously the photos blew us away - would definitely hire her again for my next event!!!!"
"Laura was amazing!!! She made my session very comfortable and welcoming I was able to be myself. She asked me what I wanted to get out of our session and I got more than what I expected. She also had the pictures ready so soon after she’s awesome!!"
"Laura was so easy to work with! My husband and I don't exactly love getting our photo taken and are a bit awkward about it, but she gently told us exactly where she wanted us and how to pose and we trusted her completely. She is professional, down to earth, and such a delight! We now have a photographer :) Thank you so much Laura!"
