Laurie took absolutely the most amazing photographs of our special day. She really captured the mood and feel of the whole day and each guest's personality really came through in the photos. Every time I look at the photos again, I find a new detail or nuance that she was able to capture. We will both cherish these images for the rest of our lives.

Working with Laurie Rhodes has been fantastic! The photos of our wedding day turned out amazing! From the start Laurie was attentive and curious, working with us closely to determine what it was that we were looking for in terms of capturing our day. She was always quick to respond and the process leading up to the wedding went smoothly. On the actual wedding day, Laurie took care of everything. Arriving early to photograph our venue before the guests arrived, she was prompt at meeting us to take pictures before the wedding and effortlessly photographed the wedding, capturing beautiful moments without being intrusive or obvious. Her high level of skill and talent is evident in the quality of the photos that resulted. Her artistic and creative eye allow her to freeze wonderful moments in time. We have just finished putting together our album after sifting through the multitude of options. This process, as the rest, has been smooth and easy. We cannot wait to get our album! We would highly recommend Laurie for any couple looking to capture the magic of their day! Laurie is a pleasure to work with, always prompt, helpful and patient. She has made this process one that has only enhanced our wedding experience. She is the best!

Laurie performed her job seamlessly and we were extremely pleased with the results. She seemed to instinctively know where to be at all times. She was able to blend and mingle among our guests to catch lots of wonderful spontaneous moments. We so enjoyed our celebration and having Laurie's photographic document of it a great way to remember it any time. I have already recommended her to friends in need of a wedding photographer and will continue to so.

Laurie Rhodes came recommended to us by our wedding venue & event planners at The Upper Crust and we were thrilled! We were not interested in having posed photos, so her style of photo-journalism was exactly what we were looking for. Laurie has a great eye and really captured the spirit of us, our wedding and our guests. The process of receiving the finished product was worth the wait! Laurie is personally warm, unobtrusive as you wish her to be, and a pleasure to collaborate with!

Laurie's photos centered around people, capturing the very best expressions and moments of the wedding. Before the wedding date, we met with Laurie a few times to discuss the types and style of photo we wanted. She made sure that she remembered names of family members in order to make the family photos as easy and efficient as possible. It took about 4 months for the photos to come back. The samples were neatly organized into labeled envelopes and were made easy to look through. Laurie did a great job before, during, and after the event. We truly recommend Laurie!

Laurie is fantastic! My husband and I contacted her, based on a recommendation from the folks at The Upper Crust catering, and general positive word of mouth. We met with Laurie in person six months prior to our wedding, at which time we discussed what we wanted when it came to the style and feel of our wedding photos. We felt comfortable and at ease during the meeting, and left feeling extremely confident that we were in good hands. We contacted Laurie several times in the interim, and she was always quick to return our calls and emails to discuss the details of our special day. About a week or two prior to our wedding, Laurie called us to solidify the specifics of our ceremony, i.e. - order of ceremony, order of entrances and exits, the timeline of the wedding post-ceremony, etc. After that call, we were absolutely certain that our wedding photos were going to be fabulous! On the day of the wedding, Laurie was careful to be present, and capture all of our special moments, while not being intrusive. In fact, this is something that she promised from day one. Laurie made a point to remind us that a photographer that is too intrusive isn't able to capture natural/candid moments. I am happy to say that she was/is right. She has a wonderful eye that is able to not only capture a moment in time, but also convey the emotions of that moment. Laurie really captured some truly AMAZING moments at our wedding. We're so happy that we chose her, and we’re honored that she was ready, willing, and able to work with us. I speak for both myself and my husband when I say that we highly recommend her services!

Laurie is really talented in capturing a lot of movement and emotion in her pictures. She is really good at picking out spontaneous moments to capture that reflect the personality of a person or the feeling of a day. For our wedding, she was really able to capture the emotion and fun of the day by picking the right moments to "click". We also did several "posed" photos, which turned out great particularly since they were not too posey.

It is hard to know how to express how amazing Laurie is. We met her through a friend of ours, whose wedding Laurie did several years ago. This friend STILL, after several years, speaks about how amazing Laurie is and how great the photos are. Our experience with Laurie was a dream. Her work is incredible, (INCREDIBLE!) and the pictures have a realism to them that is hard to believe. She is very responsive and incredibly professional. We had two pre-meetings with her, and both were a pleasure. She did both our party the night before the wedding and then the actual event. She was on time, courteous, and all of the guests loved her. She is on top of everything, but not obtrusive at the same time. When I look at the pictures now, I think "Wait - how did she get that? I don't even remember seeing her." Everyone is RAVING about our photos. You can't go wrong with her, and we can't possibly say enough good things!

Simply put, Laurie was fantastic. She listened to our thoughts/vision for the photos and came up with some great location ideas. But, really, finding nice locations was only the first step (and something many people could do). Once on location, Laurie really showed her talent - angles of shots, spots to stand, lighting, catching neat background elements, etc. And at the end of the process, we received several dozen awesome photos which we'll treasure forever. A great experience - and I'd recommend Laurie to anyone without hesitation.

Laurie was great! We knew when we met her she'd be the perfect fit for us. We were really comfortable with her and I was surprised at how fast the sessions went! Our photos turned out great, there are quite a few that we are just in love with. We did NOT want any of the standard shots and preferred candid over staged. Candid is what we got! Along with some formal shots of the family. I'd highly recommend using her.

When I came across Laurie's blog, her wedding photos blew me away. Laurie has an amazing eye. Once we booked an appointment to meet her, we knew we had to have her. Not only is she an amazing photographer, but she is a great person. She spent so much time with us during our initial meeting showing us samples from other weddings and asking us questions, assessing what exactly we were looking for. She is very enthusiastic and seemed genuinely excited to be a part of our wedding. She answered e-mails in a timely manner and always showed patience and professionalism. On our wedding day, Laurie started with our 'first look' photos. She had been to our locations before hand and scoped them out in order to be able to think about various shots, etc. This was great since there was no time wasted during first look. Laurie had a vision in her mind that she created after listening to what we wanted. Once we arrived at our wedding, Laurie carefully worked through the night, but was not intrusive in anyway -- she was our shadow and most of the time we did not even know she was there. It takes a special kind of photographer to be able to work like that. Laurie is a true professional -- talented, kind, courteous, and genuine. She was great with our guests and a pleasure to work with. I will post again once we receive our photos, but for now all I can say is FABULOUS!

UPDATE: We received our photos back from Laurie about 6 weeks ago and we are absolutely thrilled with the result. The photos are beautiful -- Laurie delivered on everything we wanted. Our wedding was captured in a beautiful way and we couldn't be more pleased. Thanks again, Laurie, we would definitely recommend her to other couples!

As an editor at a professional photography magazine, picking a wedding photographer was not easy. Out of all the photographers I contacted, Laurie was responsive, answered all my questions and above all her work is fantastic (and I look at wedding portfolios all day for work!). She always took the time to answer all my questions, spent time with us wanting to know what shots we wanted and she always emailed and called when she said she would. The best part is that the day of our wedding, she was always with us without intruding. I never had to look for her and ask her to take pictures. She was there, ready and anticipating what would happen. Now that we've gotten back our images, the quality of her work speaks for itself. Laurie captured how our friends and family look and how we act as a couple. She made us remember all the great moments (since it flew by!) all without intruding on our special day. I would highly recommend contacting Laurie if you want a top notch professional shooting your day. Trust me, no one remembers what the cake tastes like, but everyone will see these images.

I'm thrilled to be able to provide a review for Laurie; she is a joy to work with in every respect. We hired Laurie as the only photographer for our wedding; she was highly recommended to us by Eleanor Ambos, an interior designer in New York City who owns the Metropolitan Building. Laurie was the perfect photographer for us. She was extremely professional in her communication, she listened carefully to what we wanted, she took photographs that captured our wedding perfectly, she was unobtrusive when she was doing it (except when she needed to control a situation in order to get the photo we had asked for), and she delivered beautifully edited and printed photos to us, exactly when she said she would. She is a consummate professional and as such knows that business is not the end-all and be-all -- she was engaging and friendly and genuinely interested in collaborating with us.

I'm thrilled to be able to provide a review for Laurie; she is a joy to work with in every respect. We hired Laurie as the only photographer for our wedding; she was highly recommended to us by Eleanor Ambos, an interior designer in New York City who owns the Metropolitan Building. Laurie was the perfect photographer for us. She was extremely professional in her communication, she listened carefully to what we wanted, she took photographs that captured our wedding perfectly, she was unobtrusive when she was doing it (except when she needed to control a situation in order to get the photo we had asked for), and she delivered beautifully edited and printed photos to us, exactly when she said she would.

Laurie arrived on time and was very professional. She is very good. I went about the wedding and almost completely forgot she was there; very stealthy. She got some amazing angle and candid shots. The quality of the photos is excellent.

Laurie was one of the photographers our venue had worked with in the past. I emailed her and she immediately emailed me back her slide show, at which point I was blown away! Her style not only captured the important moments of the weddings she shot, but the individual character of each event. I was particularly struck by both the quiet moments she was able to capture and the sense of joy and fun that came across in her pictures. I called her immediately and we spoke at great length. She told me that the most important thing about any vendor is that you feel that you are communicating and that you trust the person. After meeting with Laurie, my fiance and I trusted her completely. On the day of the wedding (which was about 1.5 hours outside of NYC), Laurie arrived early, prepared and enthusiastic. She had recommended that we take portraits and family photos prior to the ceremony so that we could enjoy ourselves at the reception. We took her advice and were happy we did. After taking what turned out to be beautiful portraits, she encouraged each set of family members to "do something goofy." These ended up being some of the best photos we have from our wedding - they completely captured the spirit of our individual family members and were really spontaneous and special. During the ceremony and the reception, Laurie got amazing shots and managed to make herself completely unobtrusive. Some guests didn't even realize that we had a photographer there! She captured all of the amazing moments that I remember, and some that I had no idea were happening. Afterwards, she was fantastic to communicate with and we received prints and files in a timely manner (with plenty of time to make holiday gifts for family). We loved working with Laurie so much that I recommend her constantly to friends. When our son was born in 2008, we called her to do a photo session with our new family. I cannot recommend Laurie highly enough. Of all of our vendors, she was by far the most professional, honest and thoughtful.

We loved our photos from Laurie, and loved working with her. She was totally unobtrusive during the ceremony and reception and very easy to work with. The pictures came out great - she really captured how much fun we had! The one thing I wish had been different was that I didn't really think the pre-wedding portraits through 100% in terms of who should've been photographed, and it would've been good to have more direction from her (though of course I didn't ask for it). But she was super responsive to us doing our own thing and also gave me advice about makeup (since I didn't have a makeup artist). And can I say how much we love our pictures?!

Laurie was just amazing throughout the entire day. She took gorgeous photographs, was very discreet and so professional. I have recommender her to my dearest friends and they too were equally as happy. She has an eye for creativity and her photos really project her skill and passion. I am so thankful we used Laurie for our big day and now I have photographs that will make me smile as long as I live.
