In our long search for a wedding photographer, I ended up asking several people that I went to high school with who they had used to shoot their weddings...I had seen photos on Facebook, and absolutely loved what I saw! Much to my surprise, all 3 people that I had asked told me that they had booked with Laura for their weddings! We initially thought we would not be able to book Laura because the packages were a bit over the budget that we had set aside for photography...but we liked her and her work so much that we ended up cutting a few things, and completely reworking our entire wedding budget just to be able to book her. And I can say that we’re 110% happy that we did! We have gotten so many compliments on our engagement pictures, and we know that our wedding photos will be just as beautiful!

My now-husband and I had met with and interviewed several photographers before we met Laura and her husband (and partner) Jeremiah. It’s really kind of weird how you just ‘click’ with some wedding vendors, and not with others...but we instantly clicked with Laura and Jeremiah the first time we met them! Laura’s a total sweetheart, and has such a fun, vibrant personality – she really loves what she does, and it definitely shows! You really have to like your wedding photographer, since they literally spend all day with you on your wedding day...and Laura and Jeremiah are SO much fun to be around, and totally fit in with all of our friends and family...everyone had a blast with them!

For someone who typically worries about everything, it was so refreshing to know that I didn’t have to worry about how our photos would turn out – I trusted Laura and Jeremiah completely, and knew that everything would be beautiful! I highly recommend Laura Ashbrook photography, and really cannot say enough good things about my experience. They did an amazing job in helping to make our wedding day everything we ever dreamed it could be! Thank you again for everything!

Laura was everything I could hope for and so much more! She and her husband (who assists her at weddings) were such a joy to have around on my wedding day, and she captured every moment beautifully. She was also upbeat during the portraits, which was perfect for my bridesmaids and I. When it came time to capture the ceremony and reception, she knew exactly where to be so that she would get the perfect shot without being noticed- it was amazing. When I look back at my pictures, I can remember every aspect of our wedding. Not only did she capture everything, she did it with such insight and beauty! I would highly recommend her to anyone and everyone- she is worth every penny and then some. She was always prompt to respond to any emails and would go out of her way to make sure she captured my day perfectly. I only wish we could have done an engagement session with her as well! My wedding was in Savannah, GA and I couldn't find anyone in the area who could compare to her (she also photographed my sister's wedding in Fairfax, VA) so we paid the travel fee. It was definitely the right decision- Can't thank you enough, Laura!!

We (my bride and I) loved the experience that Laura and her husband provided through the whole event! She is so fun and joyful, it made me laugh a number of times how excited she would get after taking various pictures. We flew them out to our california wedding, and they spent the day prior scouting out things. They knew exactly what to expect and have a lot of professionality! The pictures that they produced where amazing, and will stay with us as a beautiful reminder of our great day!

Laura Ashbrook photography without a doubt went above and beyond what I envisioned in a wedding photographer. I met with many photographers and when I had the chance to meet with Laura, she was a breath of fresh air. She is passionate about what she does and is all about pleasing the customer. She was flexible with our schedule for the day of the wedding and was able to capture so many aspects of our wedding day. I would HIGHLY recommend Laura as your wedding photographer!

Laura is absolutely amazing! I met with many photographers when I was searching for my wedding photographer. Laura was the most knowledgeable and most energetic person we met! She was able to quantify vague terminology that other photographers were using. I also loved that she was willing to come meet me at a location that was convenient for me during the initial meeting. She is the epitome of good costumer service and responsiveness. And I can not say enough about the energy she brings to a photo shoot. She is so much fun to work with; Jeremiah rocks, too!

LAP is unbelievable. They are extremely professional and are willing to go above and beyond to get the most amazing pictures. Laura captured the sweetest and most tender moments of my day and for that I am grateful. She takes the time to get to know you, and is great at making everyone feel comfortable- which is important! She is extremely flexible, hilarious, and works her butt off to give you the most professional, creative and unique pictures I have seen! We loved LAP and couldn't have asked for anything more! My family loved the pictures so much that Laura is now doing my brother's wedding... we just can't get away!!

Laura is amazing! Her photos speak for themselves - be sure to check them out on her website. I love the way she uses light and captures movement and the moment.

But beyond her photography and artistic talent - she is caring, fun, and goes out of her way to make you feel comfortable. She took time to show us how to pose, where to look, etc -- it really helped us be comfortable and enjoy the photo sessions knowing she was making us look our best. Laura and her team did a great job capturing special moments during our ceremony and reception from many different angles. Laura was also great during the 'getting ready' session before the wedding. She was a calming presence, while at the same time, very encouraging and excited for us. She worked to identify and incorporate elements that were uniquely 'us' in the photos.

Laura was prompt and responsive whenever I called or emailed. She worked well with our venue, vendors and wedding planner. She also helped us with our wedding day timeline - gave us valuable insight into how long certain photos would really take. I highly recommend doing your engagement photos or bridal portraits with her before the wedding -- besides the fact that its fun, you'll feel much more comfortable with all the photos you'll be taking on your wedding day.

I strongly recommend using Laura as your wedding photographer. She was by far, the best vendor we had for the whole wedding and we're so thankful we found her!

Laura Ashbrook Photography was the most professional yet down-to-earth vendor that is possible to work with... I am convinced! Laura and her team made us feel comfortable at every step, did everything that they could to ensure we had the most fun day possible, and truly become not only friends but members of our families at the same time. Their value for money cannot be matched and they often went above and beyond what the "customary" package would allow with other photographers. They captured the spirit of our day and were totally unobtrusive in doing so. The quality of their photos was artistic and the documentary style that we were looking for. I seriously CANNOT recommend anyone better in the area for all of your photography needs and I believe that this is a family who we will use again and again.

Laura and her team were absolutely fabulous! Every step of the way they were professional, fun, and honest. It was so important to me to have a photographer who told me if I had hair on my face or something that would bother me when I got the pictures back, and they did. Between Laura, her assistant, and second shooter, nothing slipped by them. They were able to capture every moment on camera but weren't in the way or pushy at all. I'm exceptionally happy with the proof book and CDs with all the images that were taken - things that were included in our package. Laura is very easy to work with and makes you feel and look so beautiful on your wedding day!

It is very important ahead of time to discuss what you personally want in photographs. I feel as though I had an idea, but Laura and crew had other (and better ideas), and it can be come overwhelming

Laura's creativity and attention to detail were phenominal. The photographs were unbelieveble and we could not have been happier with the results. She and her team were fun, attentive, and practically hanging from the ceiling to get the best shots - without being intrusive. We absolutely loved them.

One of the best things about LauraAshbrook is that they created a timeline for me for the day of the Wedding. It was SO helpful to have someone else keeping us on track and it made the day run so much more smoothly. Plus, I didn't have to worry about a thing (or worry about FORGETTING anything!). They were SO much fun and made getting your picture taken a good experience instead of an awkward one :)

Laura Ashbrook Photography did an absolutely amazing job for our daughter's wedding! I have never seen wedding pictures like the ones we received from Laura. The lighting, color, album, professionalism and expertise are like no other pictures or photographer I have seen! Not only was the work to die for, but her team traveled to the Bahamas for the wedding and assisted in making it a magical day for our family. Laura Ashbrook Photography is awesome!

Laura went above and beyond what I thought that any wedding photographer would do at a wedding. Apart from making me feel like a million bucks every time she took my picture she worked very hard. There were many times that I saw Laura doing her best to get fun shots that we would actually want, such as laying on the dance floor in the middle of a circle of guys dancing. The best compliment that I can give Laura is that I made sure that my sister used her as her photographer at her wedding because I wanted her to have the same great experience that we did. Did I mention that the quality of her work is impeccable and very professional -- we constantly get compliments on our wedding photos, despite the fact that I am in them. On another note I have used Laura to take photos of my real estate listings, and they always make the house stand out above other houses because Laura is so precise and truly cares about her work. I highly recommend using Laura the next time you need some pictures taken.
