FOR THE ADVENTUROUS AND MADLY IN LOVE

...LET ME CAPTURE YOUR STORY 

I am a visual storyteller and my aim is to capture moments that seem short lived that will last a lifetime. Whether I am shooting a wedding, a family, maternity session, or any other lifestyle session, I want to make sure that the images I capture showcase YOU and all of the unique quirky details that make you, YOU.

ABOUT

MEET laura

I am not a “copy and paste” photographer, but rather I believe that it is so important for me to capture who you are every step of the way.

On your shoot, you deserve to be yourself, so let me capture the butterflies in your stomach, the sparkle in your eyes, and the big smiles, because I want it all on camera!

ABOUT

I have been in love with photography since my first darkroom class in high school, so much so that I went on to receive a B.A. in Art concentrated in Photography from UC Santa Cruz. I grew up in a small California city you might know, Santa Maria, but decided to stay in San Jose after college and am now pursuing a Master's in Business Administration from Santa Clara University. I currently work full time at SCU but could not imagine a life without photography and am so blessed to be able to do what I love.  

Getting to know each person I work with is my favorite part of this job. And I’m secretly super pumped when we all become friends! I will be your hype woman behind the camera. My goal is to make you feel at ease and help bypass any awkward moments. I want us to connect and build a relationship to make sure we are a good fit for each other. 

I can’t wait to meet you and work together! I value love and compassion, and I am thrilled to be a part of the start of the journey for every person I work with!

PORTFOLIO

I will be your hype woman behind the camera. My goal is to make you feel at ease and help bypass any awkward moments. I want us to connect and build a relationship to make sure we are a good fit for each other. 

My style is more about getting you interacting with each other, rather than a lot of really formal posing. I will passionately work to capture all that your story is. I hope that your eyes catch the spirit of my work and that your heart catches the value and meaning within the photos. 

I am based out of San Jose but service the entire Bay Area including Santa Cruz! If you want to shoot in a location outside of those areas, just let me know! I’m happy to create a custom package for you! 

SO if you’re ready to do this, drop a line and introduce yourself!

“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!”

To say that Laura was amazing is to too simple... I am not sure I really knew what to expect regarding my experience with a photographer but she definitely exceeded those expectations. She was professional, kind, silly, and the best thing overall is that she connected with my family, my husband and myself. She knew when to step back and let us have a moment and when to encourage us. To be honest it felt like a friend was taking the pictures.

really reflected who we are as a couple."
