As a child I always felt “different.” In pre-school we were asked to draw what we wanted to be when we grew up. I drew a squiggle of green and said I wanted to be a broccoli princess (actually this is kind of a lie. It’s actually something else more vague and impossible as a career but still related to broccoli. I just can’t recall what it is right now.). I became obsessed with the Beatles when I was 8 years old. When I was 10 the X-Files was my favorite show. In high school I was more interested in history (I interned as a costumed interpreter at Old Sturbridge Village and briefly considered somehow becoming a Civil War re-enactor) and music than drinking or partying. A lot of times I was frustrated at this – I couldn’t help being who I was, but it often put me at the bottom of the popularity food chain.

Thankfully now I’m grateful I stuck to my guns and stubbornly refused to be anyone else but me. As a result of all that, today I am independent, fearless, carefree, and joyously happy! Every day I live my life in the awesomest way I can. I meet people from all walks of life. I embrace different perspectives and lifestyles. I understand what it’s like to be different. I try not to take a single moment for granted – and this makes life one great big adventure!

I try bring a unique perspective to everything I photograph. Every person, couple, wedding, and event is different, and this needs to be celebrated!

Life is about adventures. Let me capture yours. Read less

We hired Laura as our photographer for our elopement in New York in September 2014. She was super responsive and very helpful prior to our wedding, suggesting locations and even venues for our post-wedding celebration. We had a blast with her on the day, and she made my very camera-shy husband comfortable and actually enjoy having his photo taken! The finished photos arrived well within the time period Laura had specified, and were gorgeous - everyone has commented on how fantastic they look. She also very helpfully coordinated a gift that a family member sent to New York for her to give us on the day - above and beyond!

I reached out to Laura only one week before our New York City Hall wedding. With an international move preceding the wedding, it was a hectic time, and I was planning to rely on photos from friends and family.

I am so glad I chose to rely on Laura's talents instead. As the wedding date approached, I suddenly realized that I was marrying the love of my life, and I wanted to capture the moment. A Google search on City Hall weddings led me to the Pennace Photography website. I knew upon seeing Laura's photos that I had to see if she was available in one week's time.

Laura was quick to respond to my email and extremely helpful and knowledgeable with regards to the best times to show up at City Hall, which does not make appointments. I was thrilled that she was available on our planned wedding date.

My husband and I could not be happier with our wedding photos. They absolutely capture the joy and love and laughter of the day between the two of us, as well as with our friends and family. Laura is not only a brilliant photographer, she is extremely professional, enthusiastic, friendly, fun, and knows all the best locations for getting great shots. I also love that, once Laura has finished editing the photos, they are all available to download -- something my friends and family also appreciate!

My husband and I decided to have a destination in wedding in NYC this time last year. Planning afar from Ireland provided hurdles, however when it came to our wedding photography everything was smooth sailing thanks to Laura and her excellent work.
From the outset Laura was informative, professional, laid back and fun. We picked the sweet and simple wedding package and then were given the freedom to customize the package to suit our needs (add extra hours if necessary, etc.). Laura made the nitty gritty straight forward with simple payments and e-mail communication and provided incredible flexibility with our photo locations, needs, desires and wants.
I distinctly remember the morning of our wedding Laura coming into my hotel room cheerfully saying 'We are going to just take things as they come today, take our time and mostly have so much fun'. She instantly, without probably knowing it, reassured me to slow down and enjoy every minute. She was present and really fun during our before wedding photos and then disappeared, capturing amazing candid shots during our ceremony, dinner and reception.
Her first priority was us and our well being throughout the day and with us, took the day as it came.
Overall, Laura ultimately made us feel like we were the only wedding she'd every captured! I can't recommend her highly enough.

We cant speak highly enough of Laura and her work, and we would absolutely recommend her services to anyone looking for a photographer for their wedding / elopement. When we were looking at other photographers in the NYC area Laura stood out immediately because of her website and blog showing the many excellent examples of her work, and because of her quick and friendly responses to our e-mails.
On the day of our elopement Laura surpassed our expectations. Neither of us have had professional photographs taken before and were both a little unsure as to what to expect. However there was no need to worry as Laura immediately made us feel at ease and we quickly began to even enjoy the shoot! Laura clearly had a good knowledge of the area we were in (Central Park), and gave us directions as to what she thought would look best, without making us feel as though we were being moved from pose to pose.
The turnaround of the pictures was also exceptional. We received initial 'teasers' from Laura within 24 hours, and the final pictures were received two and a half weeks after our ceremony. We are absolutely delighted with all the pictures that Laura has provided us with, they capture the special nature of the day beautifully as well as the amazing setting of Central Park, and we have been overwhelmed by the vast amount of comments we have already had regarding the quality of the photographs.
Overall, it was a pleasure to work with Laura and have her involved in our amazing day - thank you so much Laura.

I loved working with Laura. She was extremely professional yet personable and very easy to work with. She sent us photo teasers within 24 hours of our wedding to give us a sneak peek at the photos (which is an excellent turnaround) and we are so excited about the photos and can't wait to see everything else. She was completely prepared, arrived early to get set up and start shooting on schedule and was an absolute pro. I highly recommend Pennace Photography for your event.

Laura Pennace was recommended to us by our wedding planner and we could not be happier with her. First of all, she offers great value -- we definitely looked at some other photographers who were charging more for less.

Second, we love her professional and friendly demeanor. Neither the groom nor I are the type to enjoy having our pictures taken, but she immediately put us at ease. On the day of the wedding, she grabbed so many great shots without ever getting in the way. I don't know how she did it! She was also really efficient when it came time to do the family and wedding party portraits, which was nice because that meant we could get back to partying with our guests.

Third, she responds promptly and got her photos back to us quickly. I've heard so many horror stories about couples who paid lavishly for photographs only to wait months and months to get them back, so this was a huge relief!

Fourth, her photos are absolutely gorgeous. We didn't want anything too gimmicky or too staged, so we went with Laura because we loved her classic-but-not-stuffy style. We made the right choice -- she really captured the energy of the room. I'd recommend Laura to any of my friends in a heartbeat.

Laura is AMAZING. Really. She is the sweetest, funniest, most down-to-earth photographer I've met and, most importantly, she takes GREAT photos. She captures the essence of whatever is going on and does so professionally and without awkwardly injecting herself or taking over the fun. She's like a really talented observer, documenting all of the quick glances and big smiles you might not have noticed during your big event. I had the pleasure of working with Laura at both my City Hall wedding and my Central Park Boathouse ceremony and reception, where she had a second shooter (he was great as well!). I knew after seeing the pictures from our very short and simple City Hall wedding that the perspective Laura brings to photography is what I wanted for our "big day". Everyone who interacted with her at our larger event agreed she was funny and sweet and made them feel so comfortable-- which was important to us because we really wanted to capture our friends and family having fun and not being self conscious or stiff around a photographer. Moreover, Laura was so reasonably priced and flexible that it made wedding planning a breeze. I will recommend her again and again.

Laura is a Rock Star! She made Rodney and I feel like the luckiest and most handsome guys on earth from the moment she met us at our suite before the ceremony until she left us outside the Plaza nearly three hours later. We planned everything long distance, from Memphis, and communication before the event was flawless. She was right on time and the photos are amazing! We can't recommend Laura highly enough! Perfection!
