Our clients are incurably romantic and wild on the dance floor, with a fabulous sense of humor and a sentimental streak a mile wide. They have impeccable taste when it comes to fashion, as well as a love for all things timeless and elegant. They love a good adventure, and seek to create life-long memories throughout their wedding day, surrounded by those they love most. Just as important as the whole wedding experience, they place tremendous value in having beautiful wall art + custom heirloom albums to cherish and preserve their memories long after the celebration is over. They love to put on a great party for their guests and run off into the sunset, hand in hand, for some stolen kisses. For them, their wedding day is so much more than a celebration - it is the next chapter in a lifelong story of two hearts becoming one.
Our goal is to make you feel at ease and excited about this engagement process and upcoming wedding day. We are also happy to lend our years of experience, artful eyes, timeline planning skills and our trusted vendor referrals to help create the perfect wedding day. And we have been exactly where you are... planning a wedding, anxious to be MARRIED!, and ready to check "find the perfect photographer" off the wedding planning checklist.
We'd love to learn all about how you met, how you fell in love and the beautiful life you're building together.
Contact us today! We can't wait to tell YOUR story.
We're located just west of the Twin Cites, about 30 minutes west of Minneapolis, in Delano, MN. We charge a small mileage fee for weddings more than 2 hours from our location if we can drive, or at-cost rates for travel if we are flying. Couples can hire Laura or Laura + Nathan, and applicable travel fees will follow.
We've been in business since 2011, and have shot 170+ weddings with Laura as the primary photographer.
Our photography style is a mix of photojournalism/documentary-style coverage, modern wedding photography, editorial detail photography, creative portraiture, landscape photography and more. As wedding photographers, we are prepared for any situation and are experts in numerous photography specialities. Our editing style is generally crisp, vibrant and clean... a more timeless style. No funky Instagram filters here... just beautiful, timeless images.
Yes, we do! We have a beautiful natural light studio, located right in historic downtown Delano, Minnesota. We would love to invite you in for some champagne and conversation as we learn more about you and what you're looking for in your wedding photography experience.
For those who are outside of Minnesota, we will gladly set up a time to connect via Skype or Google Hangouts.

I am passionate about love. I love to tell stories, and I believe that preserving those stories for future generations is an incredible challenge that I accept every time a client hires our team. But we don't want to just be the people you hired to take pictures.... we want to be the people you invite into the most incredible moments of your life to document once-in-a-lifetime events, as trusted friends and keepers of your memories. Whether we meet once or have known you for years, our clients become an extension of our family... and we are forever a piece of their family history, through our photos. It is a gift we treasure and a responsibility that we take great care with.
