These sessions are not for the faint of heart - yes, they are 100% worth it in the end, but as one of my Grooms recently said to his new Fiancé in the middle of our session (after she said "yes"): "this took years off of my life - and Laura's!"

I'm glad to say I don't think secret proposals take years off of my life, but they are an extraordinary amount of preparation on both my part and the part of the proposer (and fellow conspirators).

I've been successfully photographing secret proposals for years and it always ends up being an incredibly rewarding experience for all - and, I know what does and does not work when considering embarking on the secret proposal photoshoot (wink wink, let's plan together).

All proposal packages include extensive, stealthy planning, unobnoxious (they won't realize I'm there) photography of the big moment and an engagement shoot right after "yes" happens. 

Proposal and engagement sessions start at $1400.

I exclusively photograph "not a wedding" weddings - those intimate backyard family gatherings, city hall civil ceremonies and beach elopements.

Even though your wedding is more low-key than most others, it's still a wedding and will be one of the most important days of your life - photography, of course, is essential!

I can't wait to hear more about all the details of your special day and truly understand how important it is to have photographs of your wedding that you'll love AND a photographer who can vibe with you on this monumental occasion.

All of my intimate wedding packages include up to two hours of coverage, a private online gallery of 75+ high resolution, edited images available for download & access to my full line of products with one-on-one design & ordering assistance.

Elopement photography starts at $2100.

your Baby's session will be:


Are you going to bring props?
↳NOPE NOPE NOPE. If you are into your baby being dressed like a vegetable and placed in a basket, you do you. I'm not your girl! I find babies to be fascinating little works of art all on their own that don't need much extra help to create beautiful photographs. We may use some items you have at home - baby blankets, pillows, sweet headbands, etc - to accessorize baby and make her/him comfortable while we photograph.

What is your turn around time?
↳Your edited, frame worthy, curated gallery will be delivered via online gallery within 4 weeks of our session.

Wait. I have another question...
↳Shoot me an email!

When should I book?
↳For newborn shoots, as soon as you know your due date! We'll pencil in a date for a week after you're due, and I'll keep availability open around that date so you are guaranteed a shoot.

When is the best time to do a newborn shoot?
↳It's always a good time to photograph your new baby! For those sleepy, womb-like poses, we should shoot within two weeks of birth - 5-12 days after birth is ideal. That being said, that's kind of a busy time and photos might not be a top priority. I photographed my son at 8 weeks old - by then he was smiling, less smushed up, and engaging! I've photographed babies at all stages, and my philosophy is - just do it when you can, but DO IT!

Are you going to pose my baby?
↳I am 100% not putting your baby in a basket, shoe, pile of stuffed animals, etc. If you have a baby that is happy being put down, then I will do some gentle posing. Most babies prefer to be held, which is just perfect. I'll provide you with some gentle guidance to optimize your. natural movement for the camera.

"I am SO glad we found Laura! Laura not only produced beautiful photos but was wonderful to have there! As two people who aren't very comfortable having their photo taken, Laura was a pleasure to work with, making my now-husband and I feel comfortable and confident and it shows in the photos!"
