Fine Wedding & Lifestyle Photography

To view my full portfolio and website, please visit www.lauragordonphotography.com

I try and understand each and every client, their personality, their passion, their relationship. To have a good photograph is something that captures their spirit, their essence, who they are. It's them in their truest form. The perfect photograph is the imperfect one. It's real life. Those are the photos that will bring us back to a time that we cherish and hold on to with an unexplainable obsession. It's those times that put a smile on my face and a warmth in my soul when I am able to create that for my clients. It's those times that make me fall in love with what I do and the perfectly imperfect all over again.

AH-MAZING PHOTOS! Our wedding day was beautiful, but the way Laura was able to capture those memories is so soft and romantic. She is truly a talented artist and has such a sweet personality. She made us feel very comfortable and provided advice on how to pose. We received a lot of compliments on how natural we looked in our pictures (ahhh...it's all thanks to Laura's magic). In addition, she is a professional in every regard as well. We received our engagement and wedding photos within a couple of weeks...which is great because I couldn't WAIT to see what they looked like. WORTH-EVERY-PENNY!

From day one after meeting Laura Gordon, my husband and I were excited! She was very professional and somehow captures something in an ordinary photo and turns it into something more. She did both our engagement and wedding photos, and there is not an instance where she failed to capture with her camera. She was never in the way at the wedding and all the guests loved her! We had researched over 10 photographers and we never regret choosing Laura for our big day. We would recommend her to anyone, especially close family and friends for those important moments in one's life. We got our photos in just over a week and there has always been easy and quick communication with her.

From the moment I first spoke with Laura Gordon, she was always so responsive and flexible. My fiance and I booked her for our engagement pictures and she is also doing our wedding in January 2011. My fiance and I are long distance and she has been willing to work with us on our constraints. She is a personable, professional, amazing photographer! I would recommend her to any of my friends and family.

I was more then pleased with the quality of work that Laura provided us before, during and after our portrait session. She took time out to help research our location, get in touch with the owners to make sure we could take pictures there, she braved the freezing cold weather for over 3 hours of shooting time and after getting our CD back...wow what an amazing talent she has in the editing department. We were an earlier session and being able to look at her recent work and see the progression her talent has taken in growth and in creativity just makes me that much more excited to use her for future sessions and maybe even a wedding one day. I love Laura Gordon Photography!!!
