Our photographer was one of our most important decisions. It was very important to us that our photographer have an artistic style and that he/she could capture the soft, romantic feel we sought for our wedding day. In addition to that, we needed to click. The first time we spoke to Lauri, we clicked right away and we were already sold on her style before we even connected. We had a blast with her during our engagement shoot and she executed our wedding day flawlessly. She is so much fun to be around, bends over backwards to help with whatever you need and her pictures just take your breath away. Poring over her pictures now, Bo and I feel instantly transported to the love and magic we felt on the day of our wedding which is exactly what an incredible photographer's work should do.
There really are not enough words to describe how amazing Lauri is, not only as a photographer but as a person. She and I had an immediate connection from the very first meeting. She did our engagement photos, which turned out beautiful, urban and unique. My husband does not like taking pictures, and even he said that she made him extremely comfortable. That is huge!
Lauri just shot our wedding, and was such a comfort all day. She even mixed a small cocktail for me on the shuttle to the ceremony, when my nerves were getting to me. After the ceremony, she took care of everything. I didn't worry one bit. I cant wait to see our wedding pictures, as I know she will have perfectly captured every special moment. She is exceptional!
Lauri is amazing! She's not your typical photographer who takes traditional portraits (but will if you ask her to!) and orders you to "stand here" and "pose this way". Lauri's creative and journalistic style enabled us and our family to feel like we were reliving the wedding day when we went through the proofs! That's why we chose her! In addition to that, she makes the day fun and makes you feel like a movie star when she's taking your pictures! She is incredibly easy to get along with and very professional all at the same time--just what a bride needs on her wedding day! Not only did my husband and I love having her as our photographer, but many of our guests commented on how great and fun she was as well!
I was absolutely thrilled when I saw our extensive group of wedding pictures. Lauri is spectacular. Every photo she takes is truly unique and also maintains a strong element of sophistication. Not only is Lauri an incredible artist, but she is an absolute joy to work with - sweet, funny, organized, diligent, and polished. The second I saw one of her infrared photos I had to meet her. The second I met her I knew I was going to hire her. Lauri - thank you for capturing the spirit of our day so perfectly, for constantly having innovative ideas, and for giving us such cherished keepsakes of our wedding day. We love you!
Hands down the best photographer we could have booked. After meeting with Lauri I knew she was going to be a huge part of our lives. She was incredible up to the very last second, and I could not be more happy with my pictures. I have no regrets, and can not wait to have her shoot my babies and our family someday. Do yourself a favor....BOOK HER. It is the best $ spent for your wedding.
Words cannot explain how thrilled we were looking at our wedding photos for the first time. We hoped for a handful of perfect photos to capture our day, but instead, we have over 1,500 that we adore. How will we ever choose? You have been such a love to work with throughout this entire process. I knew immediately we would be in capable, supportive, and talented hands and you never for a moment let us down. Thank you for exceeding all our expectations and for giving us something we'll treasure for the rest of our lives. You are THE best.

As intimate as our wedding (elopement) was, our photos were one of the most important things for us to invest in. We rely on our fond memories and amazing photos to reflect on our wedding day and to share the experience with our friends and family. We could not be more grateful to Lauri for capturing the essence of our wedding and the special moments we shared through her artistic eye. Not only have we discovered an amazing artist we have found an incredible friend. We deeply value our wedding photos and Lauri as our photographer. We will always continue to use Lauri for future events in our lives and highly recommend her to anyone who is in need of a fabulous photographer.

Recently, I was in need of professional photos for work. It was a foregone conclusion that I was going to work with Lauri for my portrait session. She took the time to understand what I needed and worked with me to make sure that we achieved our desired results by putting me at ease and using her creativity to make sure the photos were unique and captured my personality. When I received the photos, I was blown away with what she was able to do for me. I highly recommend her to anyone who is in need of a high caliber photographer for a portrait session.
I love working with Zoom! Lauri is hip, talented and so fun to be around. When I work with her I know I will see beautiful work. Always a pleasure to find out we are both booked on the same wedding.
Lauri is truly an artist in her field! She not only can capture the soul of the subjust in her pictures, she makes them comfortable while doing so. I love working with Lauri as she is sweet, professional and ALWAYS puts her clients first. Her attention to detail is simply amazing.
Working with Laurie is always a pleasure! Zoom Photography does awesome work!
