Ohhhh yes- I love weddings for 2 people and 500 people. I do adore the intimacy of elopements so much, there is a beautiful vibe that cannot be beat!
Weddings are magic. We'd be over-the-moon to be part of your big day.
We are taking to the woods for our nuptials, do you have options for this?
We are looking for some vendor insight - do you have any recommendations?
No. 02ERE LINK?
I sure do! I have worked with some of the best vendors and love to share their brilliance with you.
For Event Planning, I always recommend first my talented partners at Elle Rose Events.
My wedding is on the cliffs of the Southern Italian Coast, do you travel?
My passport is up to date and ready to go – I can meet you anywhere and everywhere for your big day!
I am having a winter wedding, which means it is dark around 4:00 pm - do you shoot those?
Yes, of course! But, for evening winter weddings, I insist on a first look. Or we could talk about having your ceremony earlier in the day. As a natural light photographer I want to provide you with a portfolio that you have sought me out for, which means we will need to make the most of the daylight we get on your surely magical day.
how long have you been in the wedding photography game?
I’ve been shooting weddings for the last 7 wedding seasons and have captured over 100 different wedding days across the globe.
Laurie is an outstanding gal! From our first phone call I knew she was the photographer for us. The connection was instant and it was like talking to a girlfriend I've known for years! Our entire communication process was flawless and she had a game plan for EVERYTHING! On the wedding day had a full timeline for her and the other photographer ready to rock which made my life so much easier! Laurie makes you feel comfortable and calm throughout engagement photos and on the wedding day! The photos she has taken for us are ones we will cherish for the rest of our life. She captured so many special shots! Without a doubt I will be using Laurie for many years to come! If your trying to decide between Laurie and someone else....PICK ELLE ROSE! You will not be disappointed! Jessica + Eric
Laurie is so personable, charismatic, organized, and take-charge in the most perfect way! My husband and I are very awkward at "posing" for photos- Laurie is all about the candids, thank goodness!! Her abilities are so natural, and I couldn't be happier with the moments she and her second shooter, Maggie, captured that I was unable witness firsthand- my husband kissing my grandmother's cheek as she arrived at church, my grandfather laughing as he held up his wine glass at dinner, my friends taking a shot in a fit of laughter (the bar served shots?!), our flower girl's reaction as she fully realized her role in the expanse of the church...! Also, being slightly critical of myself of photos in general, I never felt more beautiful, largely due to Laurie's positivity, and because I know she's not the type of person to say something without meaning! Type A personalities take note- if you want to lighten your load, there will be no worries with Laurie- your pictures will be perfect, and when people ask you what you recommend as they plan their own wedding, Elle Rose will be the first thing that comes to mind, and for very good reason! 5 stars times a million. Thanks Laurie, and Maggie, too! Katie + Kyle
I stumbled upon elle rose photo while searching through wedding blogs and instantly fell in love. Laurie is amazing. She is cheerful, polite, professional and everything that you would want in a wedding photographer. From the initial conversation, to meeting for the first time everything clicked and we knew she was the one to handle our loud european family (Wouldn't know how we would have gotten all the family photos without you Laurie)! We exchanged a lot of emails especially rescheduling our engagement photos after Chicago wind/rain/snow got in the way and Laurie was always responsive. Her experience helped a lot with planning our timeline and general flow of the day. Photography was the biggest budget when we started planning and all I can say is money well spent. Laurie was by my side the whole day and helped out when others couldn't be found, like helping me bustle my dress! Laurie has a natural act to capture moments that simply would be overlooked if she wasn't there. I truly can't thank Laurie enough for capturing our love and our amazing day. She made us feel so comfortable and made every moment special, regardless if we were in a public crowd or surrounded by our wild family. Thank you Laurie and Maggie, for capturing a day that we won't ever forget. Thank you for capturing a day that we won't ever forget! Alana + Ned
Elle Rose is the very best when it comes to wedding photography and coordination. Photography was on the top of our priority list, and upon speaking with Laurie, we were certain that we had found our girl! Not only is her photography style beautiful, she has a vast expertise in all things wedding. She offered me so many pearls of wisdom in just our first phone conversation. Aside from being drawn to her elegant and natural photography style, we chose Laurie because she had a great sense of humor, but also photographed many large wedding parties (ours was 27 people deep) and she was experienced in shooting a dramatic and large ceremony venues, such as our's. Laurie was a true pro, even commanding a very rowdy wedding party to achieve the perfect photo. We fell in love with our engagement photos, but they pale in comparison to our final wedding photos. They are nothing short of stunning! In addition, we also hired Elle Rose Events. The combination of Laurie, her assistant Maggie, and our coordinator Anna, was truly the 'Dream Team.' The Elle Rose team orchestrated a perfect wedding weekend experience from start to finish. They even orchestrated a surprise visit from our dog! I have friends that I have spent far more or less on a wedding photographer, and Elle Rose is the very best value for the money. You will end your experience with not only incredibly pictures, but wonderful memories and a friend in Laurie! Britt + Phil
Hiring Laurie was the first and best decision we made for our wedding! She is delightful to work with both in person and behind the camera throughout the whole wedding process from engagement shoot through wedding day. She is very organized and was always prompt in answering any questions or concerns I may have had with everything from suggestions on vendors, coordinators (Elle Rose Events), photo location and timelines. She made us laugh and made taking the "awkward photos" fun. It rained all day on our wedding day and Laurie kept us calm and lighthearted throughout the whole day. She braved the rain with us and got some amazing shots which turned out to be some of our favorites. I also used Laurie to take some glamour photos before our wedding day which were gifted to my husband on the day of in a beautiful book. She was professional and made the shoot a great experience and my husband LOVED the surprise gift! We couldn't imagine working with anyone else throughout the whole wedding process and would definitely recommend Elle Rose Photo to future brides & grooms. Dani + John
