We cannot believe this day is finally here! Cue the confetti and dance party! Today not only are we sharing our new website and blog with then entire world, we’re sharing our NEW NAME! The end of the year calls for out with the old, and in with the new! We are so very proud and excited to announce we are now officially Laura & Rachel!
Funny thing is, a lot people may have thought that has always been our name. From day one, only six short years ago, we have always been a team. A high school freshman and a full time corporate working mom. Who would have ever though we would be rocking the wedding world as a full time mother-daughter wedding photography team? I know we didn’t, but now we love every single second of it! One thing we know for certain, we wouldn’t be where we are today if it wasn’t for an amazing group of creative friends and family, supporting us to reach for our dreams!
First and far most, thank you to our awesome readers and brides! You’ve been here to listen to our stories, stood by us though accomplishments and tragedies, and embarked along side us on our crazy journeys. You are who we write for and share our lives with. You are the ones, who in the very beginning, we felt were an inadvisable audience. Who would want to hear our stories? Who shared the same struggles? No one else obviously, because everyone had the perfect lives, businesses, and amazingly curated Instagram feeds. Well the day we dropped our walls, and began to share our hearts, what it really meant to us a small business owners with no business background, just a mother and a teenage daughter wanting to embark on the world of entrepreneurship, is when we found our place. We weren’t alone! In reality, we were surrounded by hundreds of people just like us! That’s the day our lives changed.
Thank you for all the cards, gifts, messages, “likes”, shares, referrals, and emails. Today is our day of new beginnings, the day officially Laura & Rachel is live!It has taken us six years to find our brand. A website and blog you can say this is truly Laura & Rachel. We could always imagine it, but it took the amazing Davey & Krista Jones, our designers, to bring it to life! We will never forget our trip to Maryland, where they welcomed us in their home with open arms, to finalize what you’re seeing for the first time today. They held our hand on an adventure we had only imaged, and helped bring it to reality. Today and forever, we are truly thankful! If you checkout the right sidebar, you will see they are offering everyone 10% and entire new website design using the code: LAURARACHEL
Thank you to one of our most beloved friends and remarkable photographer, Brenden Boggs of So Cute Photo, for our photos you will find throughout the new site. You have stood by our side through thick and thin, with unwavering joyfulness, we don’t know where we would be without a friend like you!
Then there is the incredible Dave & Colleen Estrella of Estralla Films, for catapulting the true us. We had a vision. We wanted the world to know us, not only as photographers, but who we really are, and what we truly believe in. If you haven’t already watched our new video, stop what you’re doing immediately, and go HERE and watch it!
Lastly, we are excited to announce the launch of our newsletter! We promise not to spam your inbox of daily shenanigans, just keep you up to date on new happenings, free educational content, workshops, access to early registration, and travels. Remember we’re not only wedding, but anniversary photographers as well, and we may be traveling to your area soon! What a better way to kick it off than with a giveaway!
