My passion is travel and capturing couples special moments

well hello there

Maybe you just read that as Obi Wan.  If so, we’re already besties. I’m Laura and I am an overzealous, happy go lucky adventurer. I am that goof that wanders into galleries and antique shops just to walk around and be in awe of things (and touch everything I can). I love animals, traveling, Disney, vinyls, coffee (my job requires so much coffee), laughing, dancing, and basically trying to enjoy things as much as possible. I am your typical introverted extrovert, girly tomboy, scientific artist, soft-hearted, hopeless romantic photographer who has a drive and passion for capturing those beautiful fleeting moments of our lives that leave so us blessed in life. That, is me

As a photographer I actually started doing landscape on film along my travels, and then became OBSESSED with capturing people in these amazing places. The juxtaposition of a stunning couple surrounded by this wild landscape just leaves me giddy and breathless and I am stoked to capture a wedding day that is a thousand percent YOU. Let me be your best friend, your travel buddy, your hiking leader, and your fav photographer!

 

"Laura is an incredible photographer and the sweetest person to boot! She made us feel so comfortable and became an instant friend, which is so important when you are considering a photographer, especially a wedding photographer. She is professional, responsive, and knowledgeable. She captures the true nature of relationships and we love our photos from Fyrelite Photography!!"

While I am an avid traveler, hiker, and explorer I have become increasingly passionate about preserving the outdoors.  My travels have taught me that where people disregard respecting the beauty that nature provides, it gets absolutely destroyed over time and it looses its value, physically and emotionally.  The experience of these places are tainted with people, trash, and the deterioration is obvious to the eye.  But that doesn’t have to happen if we are mindful and considerate.  As I guide you through your wedding day, wherever it be, I aim to have us be mindful in how we plan your day to have the least impact possible and what we can do to be a part of that in our lives. Regardless of making your day memorable, creating stunning photos to last a lifetime, you can rest assure that we will do our best to accomplish all this while being thoughtful of our parks and our impact

Some of my favorite adventures!

Being a Destination Wedding and Elopement Photographer has taken me some amazing places as well as my own travels.  From the glaciers of Iceland, to the beaches of Bali, the stunning history of Greece and Italy, to the shores of islands such as Hawaii or La Graciosa,  my knowledge of travel is extensive. 

One of my favorite things is getting to share with couples the vibrant life of each place and how it can add to your overall experience as well as your photographs to serve as amazing memories to always look back on.

The Most Amazing Beach Portraits – Destination Wedding Photography

As a Destination wedding photographer, one of the most amazing experiences this summer was with these two. 

I was so stoked to meet up with this rad couple in Washington and hop aboard their boat, the Sailing Kist. 

From there we sailed for about 8 days and took portraits along the way. 

This day in particular we anchored in a place known as Rebecca Spit, to photograph a quick session and take some amazing beach portraits.
