INFO FOR PHOTOGRAPHY

What primary photographic style do you identify with?
Contemporary, Photojournalism, Portraiture, Traditional / Posed
What do your packages include?
Albums, Custom Graphic Design, Digital Files, Flush Mount, High Resolution Images, Prints
Do you have liability insurance?
Yes
Do you offer special techniques such as hand-coloring or toning?
Every image is retouched and edited before the final product is presented to my clients. I take great pride in ensuring the images are professionally corrected.
Do you have experience shooting in various lighting situations?
I have experience with indoor and low-light, and outdoor and sunny! I can work with it all.
Is your media preference film or digital?
I work solely in digital on a professional level, and have dabbled in film on a personal level. Some have said that I have produced images that are reminiscent of old film prints- a bit gritty and tonal. I suppose my love of film transfers into my art with digital.
How many photographers do you work with?
I network with many other professionals in the area, and can add a professional second or third photographer to any package.
Do you guarantee your presence at the actual event?
Yes, I am a sole-photographer business. I am my business- so when you book with me, you get me.
Do you sometimes book yourself for more than one event in a day? Weekend?
I do NOT double book weddings- once you book, the day is yours! I do not book more than two weddings per weekend, and even that depends on the length of the events and the locations.
Do you have a replacement photographer in case you become unavailable on the day of the event?
I do have back-up photographers in case I absolutely cannot be at the event. This never happens, but just in case- then we're covered.
What kind of equipment do you typically bring with you on the day-of?
Professional Grade- and lots of backups.
Do you bring back-up equipment to the event in case of malfunction?
Absolutely.
Do you charge hourly or full day?
I have packages that have set hours, ranging from $1,700 to 3,200 for all day/"all-inclusive." You are welcome to discuss your options to build your own package.
Are you available to shoot extra hours? If yes, how much do you charge for extra hours?
I often come early and stay late, but this is not a guarantee unless you book the extra hours.
What is your policy on taking breaks? If you require a meal break, do you require that the client provide your meal?
I do not shoot during the meal (people tend to hate having their picture taken while they're eating..go figure!) and do ask that two chairs be reserved for myself and my assistant during the meal, please.
Do you charge for travel?
Yes, flat fees depending on location. Long distance weddings (over 3-4 hours away) are subject to additional travel expenses- travel, hotel, possible flight.
How soon after the event are the proofs ready for viewing?
Per contract, based on season of the event, the shots are generally ready anywhere from 4 weeks to 6 weeks.
In what format are the initial proofs offered?
Online viewing and ordering.
How long can the client keep the proofs?
The online gallery for a wedding is available for 30 days.
Do you retain the copyright for the photos?
I absolutely retain copyright, but release personal use rights to the client based on package selection or purchase of the digital files.
Do you reserve the right to publish the photos?
Yes. Publication is prohibited without my written consent.
Do you provide the digital files and/or negatives (or copies of the negatives) to the client?
All packages include a gorgeous wooden usb flash drive.
What kind of albums do you offer?
Everything your heart desires.
When will the client get the final album?
Once proof pages are approved, roughly two weeks.

Laura was extremely professional and helpful, especially because we had to conduct business over such a long distance (military wedding). I would definitely recommend her!

We have worked with Laura multiple times but our wedding day she was above and beyond! She is professional and always coming up with great new ideas to try and going with the flow, for example when it started to rain during our pictures! She is always willing to try our ideas as well. I only have one picture back since our wedding was only 2 days ago but I can not wait to see the rest and know they will be amazing!

Absolutely adored my experience with Munro Photography! Laura's passion for what she does shows through her work and interactions. My husband hates getting photographed and he said he had a blast during our engagement session. Our wedding photographs turned out better than I ever imagined!

From the minute my wife saw her advertised (I think on this website) she had a good feeling about Laura. Well, we were in for a treat. Laura is a talented photographer with a lot of experience, the resources to get you the best pictures, prints, and albums, and a personality to make you feel at ease during the photo shoot. She was organized from the beginning and she not only did a fantastic job with taking our pictures for our engagement shoot in the cold and at the wedding/reception, she also was a resource for our other non picture related questions.She uploads the pictures onto her website so you can easily see your pictures. We both highly recommend her and I PROMISE you will not be disappointed.

Our whole experience from the engagement pictures to our wedding night was so perfect! Laura was so professional yet personal that I felt like I had known her for years. She did everything I wanted plus. Wedding pictures are all you're going to have left after it over, besides memories but those fade over time. You want your pictures to represent that night well! I look at our pictures and smile with so much joy in the shots that Laura captured. She is great at what she does and I feel so blessed that I was able to have her photograph one the biggest days of our lives. Thank you again Laura!

Laura took awesome engagement photos and even more fantastic wedding photos! Not only did she come through in a bind, but she captured the story of our wedding from beginning to end. Her pictures were beautiful and she got even the most random and candid moments of everyone, bridal party and all. She's laid back and fun. As well as creative with the different shots!!! We will be using her for any future pictures that we plan on having done!!!

We had our engagement and wedding pictures done by Munro Photography, and were elated with Laura, her fun demeanor, ease of scheduling, and of course, OUR PICTURES!!! She listened to things we said were important to us regarding poses and background, and really took the time to observe my husband and I, and see how we are as a couple, and how we interact with each other. I highly recommend Laura! Her level of professionalism, creativeness, and quality can't be beat!

Laura was fabulous to work with! Both my husband and I HATE taking pictures and are not the most photogenic, but somehow Laura made us look like beautiful people! She helped us with posing without "overposing". She kept the session light and fun by cracking jokes and laughing.. you could tell she loved what she was doing and was confident in her abilities which helped us feel more comfortable while she was shooting us. Laura was efficient and quick and still captured beautiful photos we will cherish forever. The only regret I have is that we chose someone else for our engagement photos and we didn't have her do those as well!
