About

I am a freelance wedding photographer based in Weymouth, Dorset. My style is natural, I shoot moments and raw emotions as they unfold - nothing staged or forced. I work hard to build the creative trust and relationships with my clients, I want to ensure you enjoy every part of your wedding day - even the couple shoot. This is where my job gets hard, not only do I have to be technically good - I also need to be funny as! Be prepared for some horrendous 1 liners and distinctively average puns. Let face it, I am the person who you will spend the majority of the day with so it's super important you guys actually like me. Lets meet, have a coffee and get creative. 

On top of my wedding photography I also have experience in shooting commercial and lifestyle . I love combining these elements of photography together as it offers so much diversity within my work. Whatever the job, get in touch, I'm up for (almost) anything. 

I love to travel and be outdoors, this is where I am most comfortable shooting as well. Nothing like an adventure to start or end the day. I am a skier and (bad) surfer but lets face it, I'm also a serial Netflix's binger! We've probably got something in common - even if its short girl problems - we will bond! So if you're looking for a fun, relaxed and natural photographer then get in touch via the contact page.

LOVE THEM, we flew Laura out to Italy to shoot our wedding. She was amazing, can’t thank her enough. The photo’s are just perfect. She was so natural and we felt completely comfortable around her. We’ve had so many compliments from family and friends and we couldn’t be happier. Thanks so much. x

Laura shot our wedding in June 2018. We felt so at ease despite not usually feeling comfortable behind the lens. I can honestly say that the half hour that we took to do a photo walk after the service was the most perfect and was one of the wedding highlights rather than a hindrance.Laura allowed us to be ourselves, do our own thing, enjoy the first few moments of being married whilst she unobtrusively snapped some of the most beautiful memories ever. Words won’t do justice to how happy we are that she captured these moments so perfectly. Thank you!

Where do I even begin? Laura captured every single moment of our wedding so beautifully & ever since we received our photos, I haven’t been able to stop looking at them!
I have always found that I’m quite uncomfortable and conscious in front of a camera but Laura LITERALLY made me feel so at ease and confident. She knew exactly what angles to capture the perfect shot from and managed to capture us and all of our guests at the most unexpected times, and every picture we have everyone looks so natural, beautiful and happy.
Laura listened to our requests and made sure she captured every image that we wanted, as well as capturing those lovely moments that we didn’t even know were happening throughout the day.
If you want a photographer to laugh with you, calm you down, make you smile & capture the most phenomenal photos ever you need look no further, Laura is a dream to work with.
Thank you from the bottom of our hearts we will be showing these photos to our friends, friends of friends, family, children and grand children they are everything we wanted and more.
So much love, the newly married Mr & Mrs Hicks.

Laura is an absolute babe!
We asked Laura to photograph our wedding because I’d seen her travel and wedding photography online and the way she captures the atmosphere of the day is sublime! Not only is Laura the most chilled and relaxed person to have around but she just got straight into taking snaps whilst we got ready, at the ceremony and the aftermath, you hardly even notice her there! She also works really hard to find the right photo to suit the couple, hence we got shoulder deep in a corn field and the photos were magical!
Another lovely thing about Laura is that she turns around about 4/5 edited photos from your day within, for us, 24hrs. This was amazing as we could share them with family and friends who were still around after the wedding straight away, kept the excitement going really nicely!
She is truly a star, trust me, you want her to shoot your wedding! x

We asked Laura to photograph our wedding as all the shots I’d seen of weddings she’d done previously were exactly what we were looking for. Laura was incredible on the day, I didn’t even realise she was there taking pictures, she just blended in with the bridal party and made us all feel completely at ease. Every guest I’ve spoken to has said how great she was and how hard she worked to get the best shots she could. I received our photos yesterday and they are beautiful! The style of the shots are amazing and they have such a natural tone to them. I would highly recommend Laura to anyone requiring a photographer. X

Laura is an absolute star! From our first FaceTime call to taking our couple shots (on our second wedding!) she put us at ease and made us feel comfortable in front of a camera. In fact it felt like we were chatting to an old friend who was just taking photos of us. All our wedding guests have said the same, how lovely Laura is. And the photos, WOW! They are incredible-so much more than we could have hoped for. Thank you so much Laura. We love you!!!

A Massive thank you Laura for capturing our day. You were phenomenal. Not only did you take some amazing photos which you delivered a sneak peak before our night had started you also had the whole album to us within weeks. We can’t stop looking at the beautiful photos, we love every single one. You captured ourselves and our guests personalities and all our special moments. You helped so much with everything it felt like you were a friend. I would highly recommend Laura and we are so glad we chose you. Xxx
