Congratulations! We're so glad you're here! We're sure your mind is running with all the things that need to be planned, but you are definitely in the right spot. We aim to make this one aspect of the wedding planning process simple. We believe that you not only deserve beautiful images, but an amazing experience from the first email you send to even after the wedding day has passed. When our couples feel comfortable and relaxed in front of the camera, that results in real, genuine images. That being said, grab a cup of coffee or glass of wine and take a look around! We hope you feel right at home!

THE                  BEHIND OUR WORK


the Process

You're ENGAGED! Just like that, there's a ring on your finger and you are starting to plan the wedding you've been dreaming of your entire life. We're here for you and we strive to make this part of the process super simple and stress-free! Let's grab a cup of coffee (or wine), even if it's virtual these days, and get to know each other so you can determine if we're the perfect fit to help you bring your wedding vision to life!

Let's Chat!

the process —

Yay! You've chosen this mother-daughter duo as your wedding photographers and we are just as excited as you are! Now let's secure your date so we can start dreaming together! We will send you over a custom proposal, which once you sign and pay the retainer, the date is yours. Easy peasy. You're then an official #lauraandrachel couple! 

Date Booked!

the process —

Now it's time to have some fun! And don't you worry about a thing... we're here to guide you through this every step of the way, from receiving our style guide that walks you through how to choose the perfect outfits, to giving you ideal location ideas. It's normal to feel nervous or "un-photogenic", but all our couples do and end up having a blast! Also, it's a perfect time to have your makeup trial done so you're not only camera ready, but once it's over, you're all dressed up, might as well make it a date night! 

The Session

the process —

We just love creating custom timelines for our couples, to ensure everything you've always dreamed of having photographed, gets captured with ample time. We truly believe your wedding day should be circled around celebrating with friends and family, not photography, and creating your timeline early in the planning process helps everything come together smoothly with all your vendors. Need vendor recommendations? We can help with that too!


the process —

You are a month away from marrying the love of your life and all the final details are falling into place. You will receive our wedding day questionnaire that will help with getting family formals organized, share with us any last minute information, and we will include a reminder of what details to have set aside for upon on our arrival on the wedding day (full invitation suite, rings, jewelry, perfume, heels, etc.)

Wedding Prep

the process —

The day you've been counting down for months has finally arrived! So much planning has gone into today, and it will be over in a blink of an eye, so take time to enjoy every moment of it! It is also our job, along with your planner, to ensure everyone stays on time and everything is flowing seamlessly. Take a deep breath, get ready to say "I Do" to forever, relax, and at the end of the day you will be married and we cannot wait to celebrate with you!

The Big Day

- Paul & Carly 

We couldn’t have asked for a better photographer team for our wedding! Laura and Rachel are the best team around. They cheered us on, taught us specific poses, and kept our whole day organized. The photos are out of this world-so beautiful. We have found lifetime friends in Laura and Rachel. Forever grateful for these two!

“The BEST team around... We are forever grateful!”

There is not enough words that I can say about Laura & Rachel, but I'll start with this… they are AMAZING! L&R are the sweetest, most creative team I have ever come across. Their professionalism, kindness, sweet smiles, and laughs made us feel so comfortable and confident which translated to amazing photos. I loved the entire process from start to finish with these two and would do it over and over again!

... they are AMAZING!”

Laura and Rachel were a joy to work with! I cannot say enough great things about them. From the start of finding Laura and Rachel, they took the time to get to know us and understand our vision for our wedding. They showed up on time, kept us calm throughout the day, fixed boutonnieres, and even bustled my dress. We felt so lucky to work with such amazing photographers! All I can say is we consider Laura and Rachel more than photographers, we now consider them friends. Anyone would be crazy to not hire them!
