Midwest based, with my suitcase ready by the door!

My name is Laurie and I am the lady behind the lens of elle rose | photo. I am a caffeine loving photographer that lives to travel and never puts my camera down. Since 2010, I have been photographing couples in love, capturing their personalities using my whimsical eye and love for natural light. I am inspired by all things vintage, fresh blooms, sunrises and photo sessions filled with love, laughing, and hopefully a little dancing.

Getting to work so closely with my brides and grooms through their wedding process is an absolute pleasure, and the lasting relationships I make with them is such an honor. I adore the excitement, the venues, and the personalized touches special to each couple. My goal is to continue to provide classic wedding images that will last a lifetime for each new family I work with.

Hiring Laurie was the first and best decision we made for our wedding! She is delightful to work with both in person and behind the camera throughout the whole wedding process from engagement shoot through wedding day. She is very organized and was always prompt in answering any questions or concerns I may have had with everything from suggestions on vendors, coordinators (Elle Rose Events), photo location and timelines. She made us laugh and made taking the "awkward photos" fun. It rained all day on our wedding day and Laurie kept us calm and lighthearted throughout the whole day. She braved the rain with us and got some amazing shots which turned out to be some of our favorites. I also used Laurie to take some glamour photos before our wedding day which were gifted to my husband on the day of in a beautiful book. She was professional and made the shoot a great experience and my husband LOVED the surprise gift! We couldn't imagine working with anyone else throughout the whole wedding process and would definitely recommend Elle Rose Photo to future brides & grooms.

I must have looked at 100 photographers before I found Elle Rose. Once I found Laurie, I stopped looking. I absolutely loved her portfolio. She captures love, emotion and light unlike most other photographers I have seen. I think this is because she is such a warm and lovely person. She is truly a pleasure to work with!

My husband and I were very nervous going into the engagement session. Neither of us is comfortable in front of the camera. Good thing Laurie kept us chatting and laughing to the point that we completely forgot she even had a camera. We absolutely loved our engagement photos.

We recently got married and we were so happy to have Laurie and Hillary with us on our big day. The nerves we had prior to the engagement session were absent on our wedding day. We knew we were in great hands! Our bridal party particularly enjoyed the fun ways they got them involved in the photos ("AEIOU!"). We are in love with the "sneak peeks" we have seen thus far. She has perfectly captured the love and emotion of our day. Laurie has provided us with the most priceless keepsake of the happiest day of our lives.

We cannot recommend Laurie and Elle Rose Photo highly enough. We would give 10 stars if we could!

Words cannot express how happy we are that we booked Laurie for our engagement and wedding photos. I was most nervous about a photographer since they are capturing moments you will look back on for the rest of your life. As soon as I met Laurie, I knew I had made a good choice. I have received nothing but the best compliments on our photos and had a really hard time choosing which ones to print for around the house and at my desk. We would book Laurie again in a heartbeat and I will definitely refer her to everyone looking for a photographer in the future.

Laurie (and her second shooter Jessica) were absolutely wonderful to work with on our big day! Laurie even turned bridesmaid on me and helped get my dress buttoned and details on correctly. I had a boudoir session with her that was surprisely comfortable and she somehow (me being naturally goofy and not in the least bit sultry) got killer images! Our engagement photos were stellar as well. I even hired her for corporate photography at my law firm because I know she'll rock it out. Couldn't be happier! Laurie- thank you so so much!

Laurie is amazing!!! My fiancé and I had a blast shooting our engagement photos. We could not be happier with our photos - they are classic, fun, beautiful, unique and vibrant. Laurie has the perfect eye for capturing the emotion of special moments. Our engagement photos tell a beautiful story that I cannot wait to show off to generations to come. There is not a single picture that I didn't like (and Laurie took a lot!). My friends and family are so impressed and many have said they wished they would have found Elle Rose Photo when they had gotten engaged/married. Laurie was flexible and sweet to work around our busy schedules to make sure we could fit our engagement session into September (her busy season). I cannot express how much I appreciated that - and the beautiful sunset photos we got as a result! I recommend Elle Rose Photo 100% - it has been my best wedding decision thus far. I cannot wait to have her shoot our wedding next fall!!

Laurie is not one of the best- she is the best. From the start point of your interactions with her you’re greeted with first class customer service and friendly demeanor. With our wedding package we received an engagement session as well which was out of this world. We could not have gotten more beautiful pictures that capture my now husband and I as a couple and our love. The wedding day was phenomenal. Laurie walked through the wedding day logistics with me days before the wedding to calm my nerves and make me feel at ease. The day of the wedding was flawless. Laurie was able to gather the cattle of our family and friends and capture every single photo. I cannot say more kind words about Laurie as a person and as a photographer. Her work speaks for itself. She is truly talented beyond words. If you are looking for a photographer for your wedding or special moment in your life- Elle Rose Photography is it…stop looking and get Laurie now before she is already booked!

when i get engaged, finding the perfect photographer was the #1 priority for me in terms of all the various components to planning a wedding. in fact, it was one of the ONLY things i really cared about! i spent hours and hours and hours searching the internet, trying to find the photographer who i felt would be able to "get" my style and what I hoped for.

i am SO lucky to have found elle rose photography, because i could not have asked for a better photographer than laurie. my wedding was very very small and intimate, and every guest at the wedding (especially my family/bridal party) would not stop talking about how amazing she was. it was kind of excessive, actually! haha. everyone just loved her. including me!

I absolutely loved working with Laurie. She was so pleasant with emails and meetings leading up to the wedding, helpful with suggestions on locations and timing, and then on the day of, she was just like a girlfriend hanging out as we got ready!

Of course, what I loved most is that the photos were AMAZING! I was blown away, as were my friends, family and others. She captured the spirit of the day wonderfully and naturally. She even captured special moments that I didn't even know happened ... Like my mom standing on my family home's front porch and watching with pride as I walked to the Church with my bridesmaids. (It's one of my faves!!) Now I just am having a terrible time deciding which images I want to frame because I want so many of them!!!! Laurie is wonderful -- I highly recommend her.

I truly can't imagine getting married without Laurie being present. Well her or my groom. She has literally been present at every major stepping stone in my relationship in the past several years.

When my then boyfriend was going to propose he contacted Laurie and together they set up the ultimate surprise proposal, completely captured by Laurie. Because of her keen eye and discreet ability, I will forever have that amazing time captured in beautiful photos.

For our engagement Laurie was so patient with us, she made us feel entirely comfortable, and even my husband had a blast. We took photos on my husband's grandfather's property and when Grandpa came out, Laurie was happy to oblige to a tour of his farm. It's about heart with Laurie and you see this resonate in her photos and in her work.

When it came to my wedding, Laurie was so thorough and great at keeping everything organized. Not only were her logistics impeccable but her ability to find the most creative and pretty shots was remarkable. I am still hearing from friends and family about the talented photographer we were blessed to have.

Laurie is the kind of person who you meet and instantly click with. In fact, my maid of honor jokes that her Mom is now obsessed with Laurie. My bridesmaids all loved her too and I have no doubt that because of her amazing talent that was candidly seen by so many, she will receive many more wedding inquiries.

I truly can't wait for our next photography opportunity with Laurie and know that she will continue to be a staple in life's biggest moments for our family.
