When I'm behind my camera, I specialize primarily in wedding and portrait photography. I try to use natural light whenever possible, and my goal is to capture your family, children, pet, special day (or just you!) in an honest, relaxed and beautiful way. I truly adore the authenticity of candid shots. I also love, love, love black and white photography!
Laura (LD Photography) was such a delight to work with, from our engagement photos to the wedding day. When we received our finished photos, we were extremely pleased with the quality of her work and her attention to detail. We feel that Laura was able to capture our special day and deliver a product that will last a lifetime. Not only are all of our photos exceptional, we also received many more photos than we ever expected, which was a great surprise:)
Although we could say much more about the photos themselves, we were even more impressed with Laura. She is communicative, focused, and authentic. It was clear to us that she has an adventurous and kind soul and on our wedding day, she had a calming yet inspiring presence.
Laura was also flexible with our specific requests for a second shooter for a portion of the day. She was helpful and honest with us during the process of determining the number of hours to hire a second person. She chose another talented photographer to join her, Aleisha. They worked well as a team to get the best shots possible.
We are grateful to have worked with her and we HIGHLY recommend working with LD Photography if you have the opportunity. One of our best decisions was having her take our engagement photos in addition to the wedding day. It was an excellent way to get to know her before the big day and see a preview of the excellent images we could expect. Laura exceeded our expectations and we would choose her again in an instant.
Laura was wonderful! She worked with us to determine exactly what we needed and what our expectations were, and made a package for us that fit perfectly! She was very professional and super sweet and fun! Our special day got a little off schedule due to some rain but she didn't seem fazed and somehow made it all work!! Her pictures turned out absolutely AMAZING!! They are such great quality, I cant wait to hang them up in my home and cherish my favorite memories forever!! 10/10 would HIGHLY recommend.
Laura was the photographer for our 9/15/18 wedding, and what an absolute pleasure it was to work with her! From start to finish, Laura was responsive, friendly, professional and flexible-- like working with a friend who just also happened to be a vendor. Laura worked with me to customize a photography time frame to fit my budget, which I really appreciated. I was looking for a "no-frills" photographer who would be able to capture all the moments from the ceremony and reception without being overbearing and Laura was just that! I couldn't even tell she was working her magic from behind the scenes, that's how great she is at her craft! Laura even took the time a few days beforehand to scope out areas at our ceremony location (Denver Botanic Gardens) for the "first look" and family portraits. Knowing that Laura was committed to getting the quality, intimate shots that we wanted meant a lot. Overall, a fabulous experience and we couldn't have asked for anyone better to be there with us throughout our special day. I would highly recommend Laura for any photography need!!!
We chose Laura to document our special day because one look at her portfolio and we knew she had the eye for those tender, once-in-a-lifetime moments that we will want to remember our wedding day by. She was extremely communicative, professional, and clear throughout the process, and her advanced knowledge and expertise was evident early on as she helped us with some key decisions and provided wise advice. Day of, she was low profile -- present, yet not distracting -- and captured all the important moments we discussed, and got some amazing candids as well. Our resulting photographs from our wedding are stunning and are ones that I'm sure will bring back memories from that beautiful day for years to come. We can look back at our photos and really feel that day come back to life. We couldn't be happier. Thank you, Laura!
Ohhhh my goodness. Where do we start? When we decided that our ideal wedding day was actually an elopement, there were certain absolute "must-haves." Number one on our list was a kick-butt photographer who would embrace our unique day with joy, spontaneaity, creativity, fun, talent, and poise. We got all of that and more with Laura. Personality was as important to us as quality and style, given that we wanted to spend the day cruising around in our limo post-courthouse wedding and getting gorgeous shots in a variety of locations. The style of her portfolio is what initially caught my eye, and when I reached out to her to see if she might have time for our elopement, we clicked instantly. She picked up on what we were going for immediately and ran with it.
Our day was absolutely perfect, from beginning to end, and that is largely thanks to our photographer. Laura's photos speak for themselves - they are beautiful, intimate, real, and special. Her personality makes it so easy to relax and enjoy the moment, which contributes to the end result in the photos. She is a true professional: timely, courteous, and polished, but it felt like we were having our photo taken by a friend. Her turnaround time was phenomenal! I was already obsessing over our photos on day 2 of our honeymoon.
I have gotten so many compliments on the joy that the photos exude. Of course we were joyful (best day ever!), but not feeling awkward in front of the camera and not having to worry about anything helped. I am endlessly grateful for the photos. We made it to so many amazing locations and got such great shots (color and black and white) that we are struggling to pick which ones we want printed. We would look self-absorbed if we printed 100, right? :)
If you are looking for a photographer who will capture the most important moments and make you look and feel good in the process, look no further.
Laura is an amazing photographer! She responds fast, is creative, fun, and great to work with. We got a ton of photos back from her and we love all of them! Laura blended in with the crowd during the reception and she captured stunning photos throughout the evening. All of the photographs we received are spectacular and you can tell she is passionate about the work she creates. We couldn't have asked for a better photographer to capture our wedding day.
I loved working with Laura from day one! We spoke on the phone very early in the wedding planning process and I felt like she understood my vision for our small, low-key mountain wedding. She knew I wasn't looking for a $4000+ package for such a casual wedding, and she worked with me to create exactly what I was looking for.
On our wedding day, Laura arrived early and scoped out some photo spots on her drive in. I'd emailed her a few weeks prior asking for guidance with poses, and Laura totally delivered. She put us as ease and was also a ton of fun. I'd recommend her for any size wedding in the Denver area, but I loved her work for our intimate one!
A few weeks ago a good girlfriend of mine showed me some photos that she had done for her husband. It was a boudoir shoot so very sexy, but done in a very tasteful manner. I was extremely impressed with the photos and decided to use Laura for my business head shots.
I really enjoyed shooting with LD. Laura is extremely professional and warm at the same time. She has a great eye for detail and even helped me style some of my looks. I am extremely particular. Laura listened to my every request when it came to touchups and was able to produce the final result that I was looking for.
I will definitely be hiring LD in the future for any photography needs that I may have. Whether you're looking for sexy shots, head shots, wedding shots or anything in between Laura is an amazing photographer and a delight to work with!
The heart of any great photographer is their ability to capture a moment. If they have an eye for a particular look or feel, that's great too, but only every so often do you see someone who can truly tell a story and capture a subject's soul. With LD, you get that kind of photography.
We've used Laura on several different occasions all for vastly different reasons.
Laura initially was hired to do a "boudoir" shoot with my husband as a birthday gift to me. I would review those photos, but that would be a little too personal and as much as I love my Yelp followers, none of you are privy to THAT level of intimacy. ;)
Laura also got some awesome shots of our little babies... We have an English and two French bulldog who are total camera hams. She did an awesome job at capturing their little personalities and we proudly display those beautiful pictures in our living area.
Most recently, this past fall, Laura met me and my family at Boulder Falls for a photo shoot mainly showcasing my 2 year old niece and all her beauty. The plan had been to not only get candid family photos, but also give us physical memories that highlight what it means to be a family. Laura was able to capture many moments shared between each of us, and she also provided helpful suggestions to maximize the impact of every photo. It was great to see her work so flawlessly with a 2 year old who has a reputation of being quite the little Mariah Carey, if you know what I mean. Furthermore, Laura produced photos that captured each of our four personalities as well as how we interact together.
So, if you're looking for someone that can produce awesome photos whether it's family, festive, frisky, or even Fido related, do yourself a favor and give Laura at LD Photography a call.
Please tell me a little about the type of photography session you’re interested in and any other important details that you think I should know. I look forward to creating beautiful images with you!!!
