    Laura….”your good you…” “you have a gift”

  • Michael (The Groom)June 9, 2008 - 8:01 am

    All,

    I first met Laura on my wedding day & we immediately hit-it-off. Rest assured she’s the real deal; full of talent and personality. Laura & her faithful assistant Hope attacked our wedding like the NY Giants in Super Bowl XLII.

    Laura,

    Thanks again for your hard work & dedication. You helped make our day very special. Best wishes to your business & family.

    Sincerely,
    Michael

  • Hope (assistant)June 11, 2008 - 5:03 pm

    Laura,

    Well, I for one am NOT surprised at the end result. You had everything going for you that day…gorgeous church, gorgeous couple, NYC as your backdrop, and genuine raw talent…what more could you ask for!

    To Karen and Michael, I wish you a world of happiness and never ending love….especially with that gorgeous little girl on the way. When I watched the dvd version, it brought tears to my eyes. Karen, I am soooo happy it worked out the way it did, and that I was a part of it all, along with the utterly talented Laura. Michael, thank you for the kudos, much appreciated.

    Now I need to land Laura a wedding out here in Portland, so I can relive the moment!!

    Laura, I’m afraid you may have to shoot my wedding one day 🙂

    I love you, girl!

    PS-my favorite shots are the one of Michael dancing with Karen, doing the (whats that move called, the swim or something??). It’s too much, he looks so happy! And the other is the very last shot of them on the balcony, with their noses rubbing…now THAT’S love!

    Love,
    Hope

  • laura bruenJune 11, 2008 - 6:03 pm

    Hope,

    You were an amazing assistant. If I could fly you with me for every wedding I would, in a heartbeat… Damn you Portland for taking her away!!! I know you will be living an amazing experience there.

    Love you too! We miss you here already.

    ~Laura

  • Karen (The Bride)June 20, 2008 - 11:15 am

    The minute I saw Laura’s website I knew she had “it” and I wanted her to shoot our wedding. I never even looked at another photographer and I have absolutely no regrets.
    Our wedding was out of a fairytale and Laura was a huge part of that. Her energy and enthusiasm radiated and the outcome was more than I had hoped for.
    We have so many beautiful pictures to choose from, I don’t know where to begin. The dedication and diligence she put into our gallery and slide show was unimaginable.
    Thank you Laura and Hope for capturing the beauty and joy of our wedding and giving us memories that will last a lifetime.

  • Lidia (mother of the groom)June 21, 2008 - 11:05 pm

    Laura, the wedding pictures are absolutely amazing. I look at them almost everyday, and still can’t choose which ones to select for our album — they are all so beautiful…You did an outstanding job.. of course what can I say as the mother of the groom, they are an absolutely gorgeous couple,, stunning.., but pictures don’t lie, and you captured the beauty of their special day, and thanks to you both Michael and Karen will have these fantastic pictures to remember their wedding… Thank for your hard work and enthusiasm.
    Lidia

    Hey Laura, just stopping in to take a peek, I’ve been to busy to blog, so I’m doing some catch up. Great stuff as always. I wanna see more wedding too!

  • KathrynJune 4, 2008 - 9:47 am

    The pics are AWESOME!!! So beautiful!!!!!! I wish you were doing our wedding 🙂 Can’t wait to see you guys!!!

  • Karen (The Bride)June 20, 2008 - 9:57 am

    What can I say? The minute I saw Laura’s website I knew she had “it” and I wanted her to shoot my wedding. I never even looked at another photographer and I have absolutely no regrets.

    Our wedding day was out of a fairytale and Laura was a huge part of that. Her professionalism and energy radiated and the outcome was more than I could have imagined.

    We have so many beautiful pictures to choose from I don’t even know where to begin, and the work she put into our gallery and slideshow was unimaginable. I’ve never seen such dedication and diligence.

    Thank you Laura for capturing the brilliance and fun of our wedding and recording memories that will last a lifetime.

I know, I know. There I go again – seemingly my cell phone shot of the month as opposed to the day – although I refuse to change the title in hopes that I get back on track. I don’t have allergies (knock on wood). My kids seemingly do. They both seemed better tonight (FINALLY)….

Random images from a day with friends in NYC. My friend Hope is moving to Portland. We spent the day together a few weeks ago. Us. Meet Max, Hope & Ezra’s Cat …and Monte, Brea’s Dog. Monte makes friends easily. So does his owner, Brea The Flower Shop …while we were chilling in the Upper…

    What beautiful friends, and looks like you guys had a blast!

  • mrslimestoneMay 16, 2008 - 4:59 am

    Love them all but the blackberry photo is super cool. Why can’t there be a professional photographer following me on my girl nights? 🙂

    Going there this weekend to celebrate a friends birthday. Anything you can recommend we do/see while there?

  • laura bruenMay 16, 2008 - 6:10 am

    Dinner? Dancing? Shopping? What are the desired delights? I’ll be there Saturday evening as well, I’m working.

  • MrsLimestoneMay 16, 2008 - 5:02 pm

    We plan on doing the liberty bell and that sort of thing but anything you can recommend, I’d be interested in hearing about. Im not quite sure what is there.
