My husband, Tom, and I were lucky enough to get the last Saturday in May that Laura had available. She had come highly recommended from a family member, but she blew any exceptions we may have had out of the water.
In our first conversation on the phone I knew Laura and I had much in common. Her attention to detail and perfectionism spoke loudly to the Type A woman I am. We had some specific, rather out of the ordinary, ideas that she not only attached herself to, but she helped bring to fruition that day.
On the day of the wedding Laura was early and prepared, flanked by her two AMAZING assistants, Gabrielle and Amy. Everything we had discussed, down to the minute, was taken care of. She went out of her way to make sure we were getting the shots we wanted, but so many more we hadn't even considered. In those precious moments leading up to the ceremony, the last thing you want is stress. Laura and her team made us feel so comfortable and excited at the same time.
It was a frigid day in May, and even though we were freezing, everyone pulled together to make it happen. When we look back at the pictures it's next to impossible to tell that we were shivering. Laura was so encouraging and she managed her time well, so no one had to be out in the cold longer than needed.
It was very important to Tom and me that the photographer be present but almost invisible. Laura did this SO perfectly! Of course there were moments that were posed, but overall her willingness to find those candid shots, and allow for moments of honesty, was truly remarkable. It was even more wonderful because we could tell that she and her assistants were having just as much fun as we were.
Laura's photographs are stunning! There was such variety in what we were given that it was difficult to choose our favorites. The album that she put together for us was so beautiful, because it truly told the story of our favorite day.
Tom and I can't recommend Laura (Leppert Photography) highly enough. It's easy to see that she loves what she does and her energy is infectious. Thank you so much to you Laura, and your outstanding team, for not only being a part of our special day, but for capturing those moments in time in a way that only you could. We are forever grateful.
Meredith and Tom
