laurie marie photography specializes in wedding & boudoir photography
food for thought...
I am not a traditional photographer, I do very few traditional shots. My style is a good mix of photojournalistic & candid, with alot of heart & soul! :). I do some directional posing only to achieve the look that I have in mind. I approach each couple differently and feel each are unique so each wedding I make special, creative and one of a kind. No carbon copies! :)
I include the engagement session in all of my packages, it is just something I add because I feel it is a big part of being a photographer. It builds trust and a relationship between myself and my clients. I feel a wedding is a special and important day and your photographer spends a large portion of that day with you, it should be with someone you can trust and feel confident in and have been able to work with. :)
I care very much for people and feel honored to be part of my clients lives, even for just one day. If you decide you would like to go with me I can promise you this, I will take the same care with your wedding as I would want someone to take with mine.
I am a huge romantic at heart and love what I do...Oh and p.s. I absolutly love & adore my husband :) There are goods ones, hope you found yours!

Laurie Marie Photography- We Shoot From the Heart!
What was your favorite wedding photo?
My favorite photo has to be one of our couples pictures. Laurie found this great cherry blossom tree that was loosing it's petals and we stood under it while her assistant shook the branches. The small white flowers cascaded around us while we kiss gently in the slowly setting sun. The pictures is absolutely priceless. We got a 10x13 to hang in our hallway.
How did the wedding photographer avoid disrupting the day? Great with candids? Action shots? Portraits?
Laurie is really attentive to you and making sure you get to enjoy your party, not just be out of the mix taking pictures all night. Her candids were perfect captures of the personalities of our guests and the wonderful love of our family members. Her portraits are well thought out and perfectly captured and she's totally open to any suggestions or requests we had.
What was included in your wedding photo package? Albums? DVDs? Engagement pics? Two photographers?
She has a great package that included a 4 different sessions. Because we booked with her right away we got a free boudoir session, and believe me Ladies it's SO fun and not too racy. I gave my album to my husband for his wedding present and he loves it! We also got an engagement session where she came to our apartment and we took photos all over the neighborhood where my husband grew up, they turned out spectacular. Everyone comments on our free guest book that was filled with the images. She then attended the wedding and pre-activities for an 8 hours session, and we will again meet her for a "rock the dress" session where I get to put the dress back on and go have some fun with it for more added photos. We get a free Disk of the photos and 100 dollars credit for prints, and 200 credit for the album. Her prices are more then reasonable for what you get and the photos are original and one of a kind not the same old same old you see from every photographer. People approached me during the wedding and told me how good she was and how they couldn't wait to see the pictures.
How did the photographer make you and family comfortable?
Laurie is an awesome person, kind, smart, and so fun to talk to. By the time we were all done, Laurie wasn't just our photographer, she's is our friend.
