for the adventurous and madly in love

people photographer: 

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.

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! I photograph weddings, families, maternity, and seniors and am based in Modesto. I am SO excited to get to know you so don't hesitate to reach out!

Hi! I'm Laura

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 Fine ArtS 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 pursuing a Master's in Business Administration from Santa Clara University. I am now living in modesto and blessed to be able to do what I love.

MAGGIE & GREG | ANTIOCH, CA

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!

FRANKIE & SUSI  |  SAN FRANCISCO WEDDING

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.

"She listened and produced work that
REALLY REFLECTED WHO WE ARE AS A COUPLE."

Ari & Victor  |  Santa Maria, CA

Laura was spectacular on our wedding day! Not only did she work with us from planning to the actual BIG day, but she also made sure everything (and I mean everything) was captured. Her pictures definitely made up for us choosing not to have a videographer. She takes great pride in her work to ensure your special moment is captured! AND, she makes the best detail pictures I've ever seen. Truly talented in what she does! Her customer service is always professional and exceptional. Highly recommend!

Wowza! You are such a talented artist! They are just gorgeous. You really were able to capture her genuine smile! These are some of the most beautiful pictures of her. LOL, thank you for capturing some of her smiles with her boyfriend, too. She is very reserved....so....very nice!

"You are such a talented artist!"
