Need a little love injections? Wanting to connect at a deeper level? A couples session's might be just what the doctor ordered! I create an experience for the two of you, not just another dreadful photo session. Over the years I've developed sessions that are much more than just stand and say cheese. These sessions not only produce amazing images but they create love and connection at a deeper level. In our busy lives sometimes we need to remember to check back in, to celebrate why we chose one another and to be reminded to not take one another for granted.
COUPLES PHOTOGRAPHY MAY BE FOR YOU IF:
- You are wanting to reconnect
- Want to celebrate an engagement, anniversary
- Celebrating the passing years together and how you're changing

About Couple's Photography
WHAT TO EXPECT BEFORE THE SESSION...
WHERE ARE SESSIONS DONE
All sessions are done on location. Either in your home, showcasing your lifestyle or on location. Locations will be discussed further prior to the session. I don't like taking couples to the same place that every other photographer takes them. I want to know places that are unique and special to you. Whether it's your home, a beach you love to spend time at or a cabin in the woods... I want to tell your story!
SHOULD I GET HAIR AND MAKEUP DONE?
It is completely up to you but I highly recommend it. I work with top stylists in the industry who understand how makeup works with lighting and photography. Having hair and makeup done gives you an overall pretty and polished look!
WHAT DO WE WEAR?
No worries, I've got you covered. I help you create a look and feel that's custom to you and who you two are as a couple. I take down info on how you typically like to dress and pull together a custom style board on Pinterest just for you! Let the inspiration begin!
I'M A BIT NEVOUS
Its perfectly natural to be nervous at first. Most people are. But have no fear I have everything covered! All you need to do is relax, have fun and I will let you know exactly what to do. Your only job is to love on your partner :)!
WHAT TO EXPECT AFTER THE SESSION...
HOW SOON DO I GET MY IMAGES?
Editing takes time but typically depending on the time of year images take 1-2 weeks to be processed. Sneak peaks will be shown in about a 2-3 days. HAVE ANY MORE QUESTIONS, DON'T BE SHY I'M HAPPY TO HELP!
WHAT HAPPENS AFTER MY SESSION?
After the session I will be sending you a sneak peak within 5-7 days. Your images will be available and ready to view within 7-10 days. Once your images are complete you'll be sent a private online gallery with username and password. You will be the only one with this information unless of course you share it. If you need help with the ordering process, I'd be happy to walk you through the ordering/sales process via skype. I've got a no pressure approach, I want you to love your images. So much that you want to have them all! And you will, love them all!
We couldn't be happier with Laurie Marie and our wedding photos. I'm a graphic artist so I'm a little bit picky. Laurie Marie's work is technically beautiful and it tells a story, your story. Our wedding day flew by and it's so wonderful to have these moments captured so I can relive them whenever I want. - Jessie
Simply amazing!! Laurie Marie and her team were so incredibly sweet and detail oriented. You will be SO happy if you use this talented and gracious photographer for your event!! Simply can't say enough. Every detail was considered, and we felt incredibly at ease as well. The photos are spectacular! - Milada
She captured moments of the wedding. That's what's important to me. She was able to capture the look be also the feeling and I will treasure these forever. There is nothing more great than to have these pictures as a memory of our special day. My husband isn't one to comment on pictures or take notice in smaller details but wth our pictures he sat and looked at them for hours with me laughing and talking about our day. He was very impressed and I will forever be grateful of the moments she captured! -Kasey
Great photographer, very attentive to the needs of individual couples (she met ours 100%) and very good at finding the perfect way to tell our unique love story! Her photos are beautiful, full of light and color. She also did an amazing job adapting to the situation, particularly in working with my family (they don't speak English). 100% recommended, we plan on using her services again in the future when babies arrive and we will need family pictures! -Marianna
There are no words that could adequately describe how amazing Laurie is! I honestly want to get married again just so I can have her capture more images! Not only is Laurie professional, but she is confident and has a plan. Being a bride, the last thing you want to worry about are details of your photographs on the day of your wedding. Laurie is calming, easy going, and never made me feel uncertain of what the outcome would be. I am absolutely in love with my images, and am still tingling from head to toe in sheer wedded bliss! - Jennifer
It was extremely important to my husband and I to have beautiful, high quality photos of our wedding day to look back on for the rest of our lives. Laurie Marie was the person that helped us accomplish this and exceeded our expectations in every regard. Her unique and cutting-edge approach to photography and keen artistic eye sets her apart from the rest. Just as noteworthy is her fun and loving personality, true passion for her work, and willingness to accommodate all of our needs. We sincerely couldn't have chosen anyone better. With all of this and more, we pass on Laurie Marie's name with highest recommendation!!-Meghan
Laurie marie was easily one of the best wedding planning decisions that we made. Looking through her work, we knew she was incredibly talented. After just meeting with her, we also quickly realized that she was fun, personable, and super sweet. We had two engagement sessions with Laurie, I did a boudoir with her, and she photographed our wedding day. For each event, she was incredibly professional, our pictures were beautiful, and we had a ton of fun. She also made great recommendations for hair & makeup and other vendors and was willing to listen and provide advice for some of our other wedding planning decisions. When initially deciding between Laurie marie and another photographer, it was hard not to consider prices. Laurie marie's prices are a bit higher than many other area photographers, but after working with her and seeing her work, we certainly understand why. Knowing that our day would go by so fast and the pictures would be our keepsakes, we decided it was worth the money. Soon after the wedding, my grandmother passed away. When hiring Laurie marie, we knew the pictures she took would be priceless for remembering our day, but I also quickly learned that they are keepsakes for remembering all of the important people in our lives too. Moving forward, we are so lucky to know such a talented photographer and awesome person. Someday when we start a family, we know who we will be going to for pictures! -Amanda
Hiring Laurie was the best decision we made in our wedding. Her services and talent were above and beyond what we expected. She photographed two engagement sessions, a boudior session and our wedding for us. She is fun, relaxed, professional and extremely talented. The quality of the photos is remarkable and her style of photography is unique and real (you can see the emotion in the photos). Throughout the entire process, it felt like we were Laurie's only clients. She recommended other vendors, styled us for all of our sessions and even made a special trip to North Carolina to take engagement photos at our house. For our wedding, I didn't have to worry about anything, she captured every detail and so much more. Laurie will be our photographer and friend for the rest of our lives. I highly recommend her!! -Sarah
Laurie was fantastic to work with people! I was apprehensive at first because her packages were more than we wanted to spend but I emailed her anyways and we instantly connected and she discussed with me what her packages had to offer and I quickly realized she was worth every penny! Our engagement pictures were amazing and we got a sneak peak of our wedding photos the Monday after our wedding! Her pictures captured every detail and her ideas and the way she portrayed us as a couple was spot on! Make room in your budget and hire her...we cut corners in other areas to afford her and she still made our wedding look like a million bucks! She also loves to have fun while working with you and makes you feel super comfortable in front of the camera...my husband and I always felt we looked awkward in pictures but with Laurie we looked awesome and photogenic!-Lindsey
Laurie Marie is absolutely AMAZING! We did our engagement and wedding pictures with her. From the get-go, I knew she was the one we wanted for our pictures and nobody else. She's got this positive energy about her that just makes you wanna smile. My hubby doesn't like taking pictures, but Laurie Marie made him feel very comfortable and we were able to get lots of good pics in! She's very creative in her shots, and the pictures turned out beautiful. She even made time for me to squeeze in a boudoir session to surprise my hubby-to-be then and tease him a little the day before the wedding. We are very happy with going with Laurie Marie, and am even more happy to have met and made such a wonderful friend! We are looking forward to doing maternity pictures with her down the road! :D -Angela
Laurie Marie is such a wonderful person, and she is a phenomenal photographer!! We girlfriend found Laurie Marie by searching the internet for photographers in the Green Bay area. One look at her website, and I HAD to get in touch with her! I loved her photos - the way she captured the emotion, the way she used light, the way that they just made me smile. From our first email correspondence, I knew I wanted to work with Laurie Marie - she just seemed a great fit for us. We went to Appleton to meet Laurie, and my husband said the same thing. We just knew she was a great fit. The following January, we headed to Door County for our engagement photos. We brought our German Shepherd along - and he and Laurie got along great. The photos turned out wonderfully, and we had the perfect one for our Save the Date. In addition to Engagement photos and Wedding photos, I knew that Laurie Marie did Boudoir photos, and I decided that would be the perfect wedding gift for my husband. I spoke to Laurie and she came to my house one day in August. She hooked me up with Sarah Miller for my hair and make-up (Sarah also did my hair for our engagement shoot), and then it was just Laurie and me. She made me feel so at ease and the shoot was so much fun. The photos turned out better than I could have imagined, and my husband really loved the book we put together. Finally, the wedding day - WOW! Seriously, WOW! Every.single.detail was captured from the flowers to the centerpieces, to the cheese tray and card box, to the cupcakes and various decorations. The wedding ceremony, the cocktail hour, the dinner, the speeches, the reception, everything. I do not know how it is possible, but we received 1,170 photos, and there is NOT A BAD PHOTO in the bunch! It takes serious talent to make that happen. We look forward to working with Laurie Marie for future life experiences! -Heather + Nic
I researched and interviewed a lot of photographers and she was by far the best. The first time I talked to her I knew she was the one, we got along great (we practically talked on the phone for over an hour). She also was the first person to respond to all my emails I sent out requesting info. And has responded to all my emails and questions very quickly there after. For the engagement pictures she was very flexible with when to do them (since we were coming from out of town over the holidays). She had lots of excellent suggestions/ideas and also had people she worked with to do hair and makeup...one which I hired to do mine and the pictures turned out absolutely beautiful. As for the wedding she was very on top of everything and had a little worksheet for me to fill out to make sure she didn't miss a shot that I wanted. She also called me a few days before just to go over the last details. On the day of the wedding she showed up early and I was freaking out about time (because our hair/makeup went longer than it was suppose to), but she was quick to take the pictures I wanted and off to the church. Then we had a problem with one of the places I wanted our pictures taken at (there was another wedding there), but Laurie was quick to improvise and picked someplace different that was just as great. Laurie Marie is a wonderful person and goes above and beyond. My pictures turned out beautifully and I thought they looked just as good as some in magazines. She really does have an artistic talent...much of what attracted me to her pictures in the first place. She overall does an excellent job and I would recommend her to anyone. -Amy
I could not have asked for a better wedding photographer :) I am so in love with our engagement and wedding pictures and have gotten nothing but compliments on all the photos. She captured every little detail of my wedding and even though the big day is over I can look at our photos and relive the entire day :) Laurie Marie was so flexible and had such great ideas for our three engagement sessions (loved the idea of multiple sessions to capture the different seasons). If I were to do our wedding all over again there is no doubt I would choose Laurie Marie to help capture our special day!! -Kimberly
I am not one who typically writes reviews, however, I could not hold back this time! I could not be happier with how Laurie was able to capture each moment of our wedding day. To be able to collect so many feelings (love, excitement, adoration, etc.) through a camera lens is truly remarkable and Laurie did it with skill and precision. I will always refer her to any newly engaged couple looking for the best photographer in the world! When we look back on our day, we have every minute of it detailed by photos and that is the greatest gift a bride could have - we are truly grateful! Thank you! -Brooke
I can't say enough about Laurie Marie and what a pleasure and a privilege it was to work with her during our engagement and our wedding day! I don't even know where to start... Laurie Marie was sooo professional, timely, and fun to work with. My fiance and I learned early on we could just trust her to take us on a "date" for a photo shoot and it each one turned out so much better than we could have every imagined. She put together a Pinterest inspiration board for us before each shoot, which really gave us direction about what to wear, etc. None of our pictures looked "posed" or cheesy...she had a way of saying the right thing at the right time so our smiles and laughter were always genuine. Our engagement shoots were, by far, the funnest thing we did leading up to our big day! As for the wedding day itself, I was grateful to have gotten to know Laurie Marie prior to big day because I felt like I had a friend by my side the entire time...we spent most of the day together and she was absolutely wonderful. By the time the wedding day came, we had worked together so closely that I never once worried that the photos would turn out. My fiance and I had a substantial bridal party and extended family, and Laurie Marie was on the ball the entire time making sure we stuck with the timeline, got all of the photos that were important to us, plus many more I would have never thought of. She also did a great job of gently prodding family to the right place (and into and out of photos) at the right time. My hubby and I have gotten so many complements on our photos. We will be coming back for family photos for years and years to come. Laurie Marie was worth every penny. She has a kind heart, wonderful spirit, and is absolutely gifted at what she does. I can't recommend her highly enough. -Ashley
Choosing a photographer was a little scary especially because of some of the horror stories we had heard. We had an amazing experience with Laurie Marie and couldn't be more pleased with our decision. Laurie Marie provided us exactly what we wanted from a wedding photographer and then some. She gives great value because she is super amazing at what she does! We were thrilled with our wedding photos - she couldn't have done a more beautiful job and the extra touches and support she gives her couples lets you know how much she cares about you. She is professional and sweet--the perfect mix :) Thank you LM for the PERFECT wedding photos! -Erin
Laurie was awesome to work with! She is so fun and creative and really made everyone in our wedding group (and our families) feel comfortable smiling for the camera! We now have such great images to help us remember what was already a fabulous day!! -Ashley
We can not rave enough over Laurie Marie! Between her personality and ability to work with individuals as well as organizing large groups (whole wedding party & family) was flawless. Her skill and knowledge for photography is impeccable. Looking over our prints we are so grateful for all the memories captured by Laurie Marie photography. They will last a lifetime, simply priceless. -Josh + Brianna
She is incredible. Her images and vision really make memories last. Laurie is so nice and easy going. My husband wasn't thrilled with the engagement session, but once we all met, he really seemed to get into it way more that I expected. She had great ideas and her product really reflect emotion. I highly recommend her if you want well above par photos to last a lifetime. I'm so glad I made the right decision. -Lesley
We love Laurie with Laurie Marie Photography! She is creative, brilliant and funny! She could not have done a better job capturing the photos for our engagement session and wedding day. We were so comfortable with her and it shows in our images! We look like ourselves having a good time with each other, not stiff or posed. Laurie is a true professional! She has the eye to really capture the mood of your special day - just as she did for ours! I would recommend her to anyone! You will not be disappointed in the results! -Cynthia
From start to finish, Laurie was amazing. I took a big risk making photography 1/4 of our budget, but I had faith in her. I would GLADLY pay ten times what I did for the memories she gave us. She has the best personality, and puts you at ease and allows you to be yourself. She has the most amazing way of catching the perfect moment, not just the standard poses. She is professional, prompt, and organized- which was great for me because I am none of those things. My husband and I both are uncomfortable getting our photos taken, and though her magic she made us SOMEHOW look like movie stars. My family and friends were all captured just the way I wanted- EVERYONE is so jealous at what she did for us. I can't wait to book her again for our next "life happening". Love you, Laurie! -Amanda
One of the best wedding decisions we made (besides saying I do) was choosing Laurie Marie Photography to capture our big day. Her creativity, confidence, patience and ability to make everyone feel comfortable made the day go smoothly, and also gave us memories we can treasure for the rest of our lives. She captured so many natural, heartfelt moments that brought tears to our eyes. I couldn't have asked for anything better. Her assistant the day of was also very professional, fun and talented! -Liz
Laurie Marie just photographed our wedding in Milwaukee, WI. My wife and I both live overseas in Russia, so it was especially important for us that we select someone who really knows what they are doing, who is flexible and most of all, someone who takes great pictures! We found all of that in Laurie Marie. Further, we were looking for someone who brings that special added touch into the pictures, i.e. not your standard shoot and pose, but really someone who knows how to get the best out of you. Again, that's Laurie Marie. From beginning to end, perfect! We highly recommend doing the engagement session with her as well, as it gives you a great idea of how she works and what you can expect for your wedding. Further, we got our pictures super quick and in amazing quality as well. All of our friends were jealous when they saw our pictures (which was not our intention, but made us smile, as we already knew how great she was)! So, if you are looking for a photographer who is creative, has a wonderful personality and is basically perfect in every way - CHOOSE LAURIE MARIE! You will NOT regret it! She rocks! -John
Thanks Laurie Marie! Wouldn't have wanted any other photographer than you! -Andrea
Laurie Marie is an absolute dream to work with! Like every bride, I was trying to find the best deal possible but after speaking with Laurie, I just couldn't imagine going with anyone else. I was slightly nervous about spending so much on photography but I have to say that with Laurie Marie, I would do it again in a heartbeat! She is quick to answer every single e-mail and phone call, always with a smile! She truly wants to get to know every couple she works with - we spent an entire day with her for our engagement session and enjoyed every minute of it! Her creativity is unmatched and she has the ability to find beauty in almost any setting. The turnaround time is insanely fast, with quality that cannot be beat! We have received so many compliments on both our engagement pictures and wedding photographs. She is truly an artist; if you are looking for someone who goes beyond the traditional poses and settings, then look no further than Laurie Marie! She captured the most natural, beautiful moments between my husband and I (smiles, laughs, tears, and all!). We are so proud and lucky to have had the opportunity to work with her! Don't pass this talented photographer up! :) P.S. She is fantastic when it comes to working with large bridal parties and young children!
Laurie Marie Photography was AMAZING to work with! We have nothing but great things to say about Laurie Marie. She made every little moment special--from the first day we met with her for our consultation, to the day of our engagement photos, all the way to our BIG day, Laurie Marie made us feel like we were her only client. On top of it, her final product is stunning, to say the least. Her creativity is one-of-a-kind. We knew we didn't have to worry about a thing, that whatever she recommended (backdrops, photo shoot locations, page layouts for the guestbook, etc.) would turn out great, which took a lot of pressure off of us. All of our family and friends have been raving about our photos and so are we--we LOVE all of them and will cherish them forever! We would definitely recommend Laurie Marie Photography--we promise, you won't regret it.
I adore Laurie, her pictures are to die for. I literally cried when I saw her photos of my husband and I. She captures the real sense of who you are as a couple. She is reliable, creative and AMAZING. Photography was one of the most important aspects of my wedding, it was one of the highest priorities to us because it is the only thing remaining when the day is done, besides the memories. Laurie is worth every penny and it is a GIFT to have her photograph your day! You will be blown away by the quality of her work and the moments she captures! Hands down, best photographer EVER! Don't waste your time researching.....she's the real deal and it would be a mistake not to hire her! Just make sure you call early! We were lucky she had our date available! -Dayna
I am so incredibly pleased with my wedding photos! Laurie captured every special moment of my day and I couldn't be happier! My friends are upset that they didn't have nearly the quality of photos that I did on their wedding days. Thanks Laurie!
Laurie Marie was amazing. We eloped and planned everything in under one month. We were so lucky Laurie Marie was available. Not only was she our photographer, but she stepped in as a wedding helper extraordinaire. She was totally on top of everything knowing we were under a time crunch. Our experience with her was wonderful and our photos are out of this world amazing. I wouldn't change a thing about our day, and that includes our choice for a photographer. Laurie Marie made us feel comfortable and captured images of us I never thought we would have. We feel blessed to have such amazing photos of our special day, and a new friend! -Trisha
We had the pleasure of working with Laurie Marie Photography for our wedding in May. Laurie was such a professional throughout the whole process. She did a fantastic job on both our Engagement and Wedding Photos. Working with Laurie was very relaxing and she made everyone feel at ease. After everything is all said and done you have photographs to remember your big day, Laurie Marie is worth every penny!!! -Erin
