Laura and her husband did a good job. I love that they come as a team and you get two photographers. I wish we did more photos that were "outside the box".

Anyone planning a wedding knows the stress of planning such an event. As the mother of the bride, I wanted the day to be everything my daughter and her fiancé imagined. Choosing the right photographer is one of the most important decisions you must make. Photographs that can only be done once and they must be done perfectly. That is what lead us to Laura Chapin Photography.

When we met with Laura and John, we were able to see the quality of their work and were impressed with their professionalism and expertise. My daughter had a large wedding party - 10 bridesmaids and 7 groomsmen - making it important to have someone who was able to direct and deal with such a large group with ease. Both Laura and John were able to handle the situation to perfection! We chose to do "First Look" photographs which meant that a lot of the group shots were done prior to the actual ceremony. I am so thankful that we did that; the bride and groom to actually had time to enjoy the reception and the guests were not waiting forever for the photographer to finish after the ceremony. Of course there were shots that were done following the ceremony, but it allowed everyone extra time to celebrate rather than pose. Laura followed through the ceremony and into the reception and captured all the moments without detracting from the celebration. She took so many shots that I am not sure how we can chose which ones not to include! I would highly recommend them as a wedding photographer. I am sure that we made the right choice and can't express in words how grateful I am to Laura and John for the hard work they did and what a wonderful job they did! She even had a photographer on the roof of the hotel and captured "aerial shots" of the ceremony!

If you are looking for a fantastic wedding photographer, give Laura a call! She will not disappoint you!

Thank you Laura!!!!

I thought John and Laura provided excellent service. There were a few things they pointed out to make my pictures better. My dress was busseled in many of the pictures and I wish they were more aggressive with the bridal party and what they needed from them. Overall we are very pleased with the pictures we do have. We get very good feedback from everyone who sees them!

Laura and her team were wonderful! She was able to get photos of all aspects of the day--from getting ready, close-ups of the rings/important details, the ceremony, and all the friends and family at my reception. She was quick to post proofs on her website for me to view. The photobook she put together as part of my package was such a nice quality--a great way to re-live the day. I appreciated her energy and enthusiasm, and would highly recommend her! Thanks, Laura!

AMAZING!!!! That is the only word to describe our experience with Laura and John. The wedding pictures and rehearsal dinner pictures were phenomenal. The wedding photo album and the included photo storybook captured our special day in the most amazing way.

Laura and John went above and beyond in so many ways to ensure that our wedding was a special day, and that those special moments were captured. Laura provided a lot of great photo recommendations for our pictures on the beach, and always listened to what we wanted; fulfilled custom requests and was both professional and friendly throughout our experience.

These photographers excel at not only the great candid moments, but also capturing whatever style you may be looking for: photo-journalism style, portraits or classic shots. They truly capture the wedding story, and their follow-through after the wedding is just phenomenal. I cannot say enough good things about our wedding photograph experience. Definitely one of the best and easiest decisions in our wedding!!!!!

Laura and John were always fast to respond to our questions throughout the wedding planning. They worked great with all of our other vendors, and came highly recommended from the other vendors. Laura and John were truly a blessing to an out of town bride planning a destination beach wedding. Our pictures look natural, beautiful, and captured the true emotion of the moments of my wedding.

Laura Chapin and her husband did a wonderful job taking photos at my wedding. They were kind, professional and organized. I received my photo DVD in person, 2 days after my wedding. I was able to choose the photos that I wanted hard copies of and received them in the mail quickly. They knew all the right questions to ask and did a wonderful job. They made the pictures stress-free and fun! I would recommend them to any bride and groom!

From the moment I met Laura and John, I knew they were the photographers for me. They had such a positive and welcoming spirit. The day of the wedding they provided soo much support and assistance from helping with getting me dress to keeping up with my little ones to transporting me and my family to the venue. They even had an assistant, Brenda to help as well. They took an enormous amount of pictures and were very creative with their ideas. They even stuck around until practically the end of the reception. I love these guys and would recommend them to any and everyone looking for photographers in the St. Pete Beach area of Florida.

Laura and John provided the most amazing photography for my wedding on January 20th. They were not just photographers, they helped with every aspect from the rehearsal to finding my earring back when I lost it. They made sure I looked beautiful and stayed all night taking photos of the reception and even passed out cake. I would use Laura again for any photo needs in the St. Pete area. All of our wedding participants couldn't have been more pleased with Laura and John. Thank you!
