FEATURED PHOTOGRAPHER: Laura Marie
I recently decided to bring on board some awesome like-minded photographers to join my team, and I knew as soon as I saw Laura Marie’s work that she was extremely talented! Luckily for me she is also extremely kind and has a wonderful presence. I brought her on not only because I admire her wedding work, but she is a master at creating beautiful one of a kind Fine Art conceptual portraits that showcase her imagination and amazing digital manipulation skills.
A few words Laura uses to describe her work is “nostalgic” and “otherworldly”. She describes her practice as “having the ability to bring stories in my head to reality…I was always day-dreaming as a kid, creating story books with crayons and construction paper. Photography became in a sense, a way for me to hold onto these imaginative aspects of childhood. I think that art for many people (writers, painters, etc) is really just another way to contain our imaginations in a world that can be hectic, stressful, and lack creativity for the adult mind.”
I wanted to take this opportunity to showcase some of her beautiful pieces and also announce that with Laura, we are now offering Fine Art Portrait sessions. Clients will work with Laura to collaborate on a concept and bring their ideas to life with her photography, conceptual styling and fantastical Photoshop skills.
Available for all types of portrait sessions: bride + groom portraits, engagement sessions, kids and family!
Starts at $750 per session and includes 1 digitally mastered Fine Art image file, 1 Fine Art print and extra shots from the shoot. Please contact us here to inquire about booking a session: firstname.lastname@example.org
