    WOW!!! I knew these pics were going to be amazing, but I gotta say – you totally blew me away again!!! Fabulous!ReplyCancel

  • WOW! Amazing location and subjects! Worth the bump on the rump! These two look totally in love! Great work!ReplyCancel

  • Michelle

    She’s hot and he’s cute!!! The other day I learned on Bridezilla that either the word marriage or wedding literally means to gamble (!) I think the casino photo is then so very appropriate. Marriage is the best chance I ever took with someone.ReplyCancel

  • HAWT!!!!!!!! You rocked these!!!!!!ReplyCancel

  • You did a great job w/Melzy’s SIL e-pix! They’re wonderfully done! 🙂 Again, awesome job kiddo! 😀ReplyCancel

  • Erin

    creative use of everything: subjects, foreground and background… the pictures look fabulous and they look extremely happy together…. CHEERS!!ReplyCancel

  • Jennifer :))

    Ok, soooo here is my long overdue comment. First of all, Laura you are amazing! Second of all, we had the best time ever. With that said….all of the elements around us that day fit perfectly into place. The weather was great, the sun was about to rise, the company was fantastic, and the photographer was creative, proffessional, personable, relaxed, fun, friendly, and the list goes on and on. Once again, we had a great time, we love the pictures, and other than the “rump on the hump” it could not have been better. Thank you so very much!ReplyCancel

  • hi there and thank you for visiting our blog! this shoot is gorgeous – you did a great job with the lighting and making the couple look very natural in front of the camera!ReplyCancel

    For anyone who is already in love, watching this slideshow feels like an afternoon strolling through a favorite familiar place. I have goosebumps and (I must admit) am still a little misty-eyed. What a wonderful way to capture a day that embodies a lifetime to come. Norm and I wish for the two of you all the peace and love you can possibly squeeze into the universe. Thanks so much for sharing.
    PS – Chewy loved watching too. 🙂ReplyCancel

we’re engaged: nicole & robear

Whew, what a fun time I had with Nicole and Robert (aka “Robear”) on Sunday. What a session!!! We had so many laughs – they just don’t skip a BEAT AND…we did…after all, survive poison ivy, spiders, barbed wire, and horseflies. The session took place at “Tower Hill Farm”, a 1920 To-Die-For Private Estate in…

    Last night when I opened the link to view our slide show I was so pleased with the photos you took, and the way you orchestrated the pictures with the song that I LOVE, was just AWESOME!!! I watched it like twenty times last night and twenty times today…hehehe!!! Robear and I both had tears in our eyes when we watched it. It is so funny/weird, because I know how much I love him, but the photos somehow reminded me of how much I truly do love him. He is the BEST!!!

    We had such a GREAT time with you and we were so comfortable with you that it did not seem like we were having a shoot. It just felt like we were all good friends enjoying the day. You have a way with people that will make you very successful and I wish you all the BEST!!!

    Thanks so much for the AWESOME pictures!!!

    P.S And I really do love them all……ReplyCancel

  • Angie

    Ok, so I was finally able to watch the slide show with music…………………I have tears running down my face. Let me say that it’s evident through the way you look at Robear how much you love him. I am honored that I was there the first night you met Robear at Salt Creek Grill…..we had fun! STUNNING!!! Nicole, those were the most beautiful pictures I have ever seen!!!! I can’t wait to see the wedding Album!! I wish you and Robear all the best with all my heart……..you deserve it!

    Hi Laura,
    You captured the beauty of Nicole and Robear’s love, with such insight , passion,intutivness. It is truly your gift and artistic integrity that we can all see the love they share.

    As Nicole’s Mom, the tears just streamed down my face. I of course have always thought Nicole was stunning but you captured her soul.

    Thank you so much, now I can’t wait to see their Wedding pictures.

  • Hilary

    They are awesome, they made me cry, lol. i especially like the one of you guys down the little road, off in the distance, and you look like a sex bomb in the ones in front of the doors. my favorite though is the one close up of you looking directly at the camera and it is rob’s profile with his eyes closed. simply beautiful.

    ok. hope all is well, have a good day!

    Thanks Laura for taking our engagement pictures. We love them so much. I’m so glad that Vinnie (Event/Sales Manager of Roy’s) referred us. As soon as we got the pics, we showed all of our friends and family and everyone was amazed how awesome they are. I even showed fellow collegues who have recently got married or who are also engaged and all of them said their photographer didn’t or doesn’t do what you do. Can’t wait for the wedding…ReplyCancel
