Hi! I'm Laura!

I’m a wedding and brand photo-grapher for creative and adventurous hearts and and your resident work-life balance aficionado. I’m so glad you’re here! My favorite thing in life is sitting out by my fire-pit with a glass of Riesling and a s’more in hand with friends and family surrounding me. I'm rarely ever found without a warm blanket wrapped around me, and If my wallet didn't frown upon it, I’d probably buy everything in Anthropologie Home and Free People.

Michelle and Nick Brand Mini Session | NJ Brand Photographer

Brand Photography

I’ve got a super fun personal brand session to share with you today!! Michelle and Nick are a Wedding photography duo out of the Philadelphia area and came all the way up to Long Branch, NJ for their session! They were my final brand mini session of our November event!  

I got to photograph Michelle back in March in Philadelphia – she was my second to last session before the COVID lockdown. We got some GREAT shots of her outdoors at the Rail Park, as well as some awesome, personality packed indoor shots at an Airbnb we had rented! But, for this shoot, her boyfriend Nick came (who second shoots all her weddings with her!), and we wanted to get new shots of both of them together, as well as headshots of each of them solo! 

Michelle is really the primary photographer of the brand, while Nick is behind the scenes doing all her weddings with her! Which is awesome because being able to do what you love with the person you love is so special! And as Michelle would put it…they aren’t your typical couple. Michelle said they don’t like the typical “couple” photos so we made their photos more unique to them! They have more of a badass attitude, personality and brand, are covered in tattoos, and can give a serious stare like nobody’s business. We really wanted to capture the edgy side of them and I’d say we freakin’ nailed it if you ask me. ESPECIALLY THE BLACK AND WHITE PHOTOS – DEAD.

Annnnnd they let me get a few cute couply photos too, so it was a win-win if you ask me! We also got a lot of great headshots of them with and without their camera and I loveeeee how literally every single photo came out. PINCH ME. I can’t wait for another session with them in the future!
