Laura Mae

Hi there! I’m so glad you’ve stopped by. Love of photography has always been a part of me! Never in my wildest dreams could I have imagined where that love would take me. I’m beyond honored to photograph families! I can’t wait to get to know you, but for now, I’d love to share more about me.



Laura Mae Photography specializes in family and elopement photography. I make it my priority for you to feel comfortable and at ease, enabling both candid and posed shots to happen naturally and beautifully. Your photography session becomes a positive memory of its own, rather than a means to an end.

I wanted a few simple, yet beautiful baby pictures of my little boy and Laura gave me just that. This was a great, fun, easygoing experience for my wild kiddos and myself. I am very grateful and totally in love with the photos.


Laura Mae Photography was an easy, fun experience to capture our growing boy and sweet family this year! Everyone loved receiving our Laura Mae photography prints this Christmas!

Working with Laura was such a pleasure! She listened to all my ideas and gave me exactly what I wanted and more. She was up for anything and was so much fun to work with! I would recommend her to anyone!

I contacted Laura about doing a "Just Because" shoot with my guy and we loved every minute of it. She incorporated his guitar into our photos and even met us at a location we felt best represented us. We had a lot of fun and it was a very natural shoot. We will continue to work with her.
