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.

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!

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!!!

Laura does an amazing job making your photos unique and to reflect you and your significant other. She never disappoints! She is great at giving direction and we received our pictures quite quickly. Laura has photographed our engagement, wedding, and my trash the dress shoot. She has creative ideas and isn't afraid to get down and dirty to get a fantastic picture. My husband and I highly recommend her!

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!

Munro traveled to Mackinac Island for our wedding and delivered excellent quality and quantity of photography for our special day. I was super impressed with how she did a little research, scouted locations ahead of time and even worked out with our carriage driver a surprise stop for photos at the location where we had gotten engaged! Very thoughtful! She was also very open to a few photo-ops I had requested.

Laura is super enthusiastic, super friendly and great to work with! I am the type of person who does not really like my photo taken, but she always manages to catch my good angles and gives direction to those who need more help in the posing department. The value is great- her prices are reasonable and you will get outstanding photos with the opportunity to control the creative process as well, if you are looking for that. Laura always made sure that we were on the same page and I felt totally comfortable with her, as did all of my family and guests. I loved all of my photos and she even stayed later than we paid for to catch us lighting off our lanterns. Couldn't be happier!

Absolutely love Laura and Munro Photography. She shot both our engagement pictures and our wedding pictures. I looked long and hard for the perfect photographer and found it in Laura.

She made the day fun and we were really happy with all the shots she got. She encouraged me to let her come early and film while I was getting ready and some of my favorite shots are of my dress and shoes before the wedding and my sister, niece and son helping me get ready. She got great shots during the ceremony while being unobtrusive. At the reception she got great candid shots of our guests..and she was able to capture the emotions of the day--from my sister tearing up...to my new nephew grooving on the dance floor...to my parents joyfully sharing a dance.

Can't say enough wonderful things about Laura. She has a great Facebook page where you can scope out her latest shots and of course her website is awesome too.

Fifty years ago my husband and I got married at our pastors home. I wore a gold dress, only our parents were there and there was not a single picture taken of our ceremony. My family threw us a vow renewal (almost a wedding-complete with white wedding dress and all) to celebrate our special anniversary and Laura took our photos. All I can say is WOW! She made feel so special and beautiful! It was so very special to me to see the loving way my husband looks at me. Through all the years of having our portraits taken, I have never been able to see my spouse and I: #1 look so amazing #2 share feelings. Laura captured the love Stewart & I have. I don't know how she did it but looking at these pictures I don't just see us but the love we have for one another. I can't go back and make pictures from that first "wedding" but I feel so blessed to have the ones from December for me and my family to treasure and remember forever.

Laura is not only an excellent photographer, she is also incredibly fun and easy to work with. My husband and I are not the best with poses and she had so many fun and cute ideas while making the whole day feel so natural. Our pictures are breath taking because she is a true artist. We have had three photo shoots with her so far and look forward to many more in the future!

Laura was awesome to work with. We had a great feeling from the moment we saw her work online and then Skyped with her to discuss working together – she is very down to earth and willing to talk through clients' ideas and preferences to ensure a good fit. Because we lived out of state and were not able to have an engagement session, she made a point of traveling to our venue to meet with us, scope out shots, and get to know one another on an earlier visit to Michigan. She was also flexible in "trading out" the photo session we missed for a later one to ensure our package was fulfilled. Laura has a fantastic eye and we ended up with beautiful, creative wedding photos that captured our memories of the day. We felt very fortunate to find her and would recommend her to others.

Munro Photography is Amazing. She is flexible, thorough, outgoing, fun, creative, and insightful. She actually travelled with us on our destination wedding to Jamaica. We couldn't be more thankful that she did because we have amazing pictures that exceeded expectations and we enjoyed her company. Laura calls herself a photographer but she is so much more.. She was so helpful throughout the entire wedding process and willing to take risks for the sake of a great photo opportunity. We loved everything about the service we received from Munro Photography.

I spent three years planning my wedding and finding a great photographer at a reasonable price that had a down to earth personality that my very shy and reserved husband would feel comfortable around was extremely important to me. Munro Photography definitely delivered everything we were looking for. Laura's personality makes it so easy to be yourself and allow for your true personality to shine through in your pictures, which by the way were so beautiful that even now, 2 years later, I still do through the images and drool over how amazing everything looks.

Laura, and her assistant Tracy, were absolutely wonderful (did our engagement and wedding photos). She doesn't worry about how many pictures she took. She captures every moment with a beautiful artistic vision. Her attention to detail is amazing and it doesn't go unnoticed. We really enjoyed working with her. AND she gave us a CD with all of our pictures so we could print them ourselves...very rare to find that these days.

Laura has a way of pulling the "true you" into her photos.Not only does she capture an image but the relationship between two people and the immense sense of love they have for each other.While our wedding may have been three years ago but these photos remain my favorite pictures to date.Thank you Laura for being so creative,friendly and for pulling "us" into your work. You are truly amazing!

I met Laura 2 years ago when my (now) husband and I were searching for a wedding photographer. Since then, she has photographed our family 3 times, engagement, wedding and Christmas. Each time I have been very pleased with her service, her professionalism and the fact she is very reasonable. I continue to refer other people to her, and plan on continuing to use her services throughout the years.

Laura is great... we got lost on the way to meet her for the first time and she waited 45 minutes until we found our way. We had her come to out to our location to do engagement photos and she let us include my hubby's son from his first marriage and my neice it was great to get updated photos of all of them.

At the wedding she had a second shooter who was her mom... I met her mom on the engagement shoot and she was wonderful with the kids...so that was a great plus at the wedding. Laura had a great eye for photos and we got many great shots to choose from.

We also had Laura take family pictures a couple of months after the wedding.. our apt was supposed to take 30 mins but 50 mins into the session we looked at the time. It was great to have Laura take all the pictures of us... but this time she had a good feel of what we would be comfortable to do.

Laura is not afriad to lay on the ground to get the best shot possible... many times durring the engagement and family photos she was on the ground...getting many great pictures.

I was on a tight budget for pictures and was looking all over when I found Laura on Craig's List... and I am glad I did. I had a friend who is a photographer in a different state look at all the possible photographers and he liked what he saw on Laura's webiste... and she was willing to look at what he said and took the info as a learning experience and not critisim.

Bottom Line... Laura is great photographer and has wonderful prices!!

Laura is simply amazing! She is so down to earth and exceptionally good at what she does. She did the photography for our beach wedding in July 2009. She caught every special moment. The photographs she took were a thousand times more beautiful than I ever could have ever imagined! The proofs were up on the website very quickly, which was great.

Since our wedding Laura has also photographed a family session for us as well as boudior session as a surprise for my husband. She knows exactly how to take a picture to enhance what you've got. For the boudior session, I was very nervous and very shy, but that didn't last long. Laura showed me a few shots along the way so I knew what they were looking like, she made it so much fun. I am never going anywhere else for any other photography! If you're looking for the best, you can stop your search right here!! She's incredible!! :)
