the Laura Tjepkes

Wedding Experience

I'm here for you every step of the way

It is my passion to provide you with every resource to feel confidently elegant on your special day. 

It is my mission to serve you well right from the beginning! Once you inquire, I will send over my packages and pricing for you to look over and then we can set up a free consultation to see what kind of coverage you are needing specifically. 




After a brides inquiry I strongly encourage them to meet up for coffee or do a phone call. It’s during this time we talk all things wedding! We go over all the basic information wedding venue, bridal party numbers, wedding colors and ceremony time. This gives me an idea of how many hours you will need and which package we should go with. 



Hooray! Once contract is signed and retainer paid, you are officially booked! I cannot wait to help you with anything I can. I love to be an abundant resource of knowledge as you get ready for your big day! 

You're booked!


From here I will be in touch with you to set up your engagement session and set you up with any vendors you might be needing! I'm here for it all!

Stay in touch


It's time for your engagement session! This is one of my favorite sessions because it puts us in a low pressure enviornment and you can get familiar with my posing styles/direction. We'll laugh, get to know each other more and just have some fun all while getting some GORGEOUS photos you'll treasure forever!



This second consultation happens a couple months before your wedding, where we go over timeline and all the nitty gritty details. It's so important to me to get all the shots that you really want and capture the style you are envisioning for your wedding!

2nd consultation


Wedding week!! I'll touch base with you at the beginning of the week just to make sure we are all good to go and on the same page!
