Gorgeous Photos, Fantastic Photographers - Such a great decision!

Reviewed on 9/11/2014

My wedding day was the most incredible, emotional, and exciting day of my life. Thanks to the fabulous photographers of Laurel Mountain Photography, I am able to relive each wonderful moment any time I want to. Their ability to capture every heartfelt smile, tear, and kiss is... Read More priceless to my husband and I. I get goosebumps each time I open my wedding album! We hired Laurel Mountain Photography to take our engagement photos after several word-of-mouth referrals, and after receiving the proofs, there was no question who we were hiring to photograph our wedding day! We knew we had professionals that we could trust to document all of the intricate details we would want to remember forever. The photographers were a dream from the start - they showed initiative by contacting me to schedule a meeting where we discussed my wedding vision, my theme, a shot list, possible locations, and the day's timeframe. On the big day, they were extremely flexible, agreeing to photograph myself, my mother, and the bridesmaids during our hair appointments and make up appointments. They also photographed my groom, my father, and the groomsmen/ring bearer putting on their jackets and straightening their ties before the ceremony. Those pictures are particularly special to me. During the ceremony, photographs afterwards, and reception, Laurel Mountain Photography was professional, efficient, and most importantly, respectful of my timeframe and shot requests. Thanks to them, my wedding day ran smoothly - we arrived where we were supposed to be at the right time, and our guests did not have to spend their evening waiting for us to arrive! Even though I did not wish to spend several hours after the ceremony taking pictures, the photographs that I received were breathtaking. The photographers recommended my new husband and I stepping outside for a few minutes during the reception, and those intimate nighttime moments between he and I are some of my very favorites. When choosing photographers for your wedding, just consider this - anyone can take a picture (including my 2-year old nephew!). But the key is to find someone who is talented, considerate, and reliable who will take the time to know you and your fiancé as a couple to ensure that the most special moments are captured. Laurel Mountain Photography did this for my husband and I, and we couldn't be more grateful for them!


Captured the memories!

We had our wedding in June 2015 and honestly could not have worked with a better couple for the day. Even when meeting for the first time we were blown away with how professional and friendly Anastasia was. She met us at a location near our house to save us the travel, she... Read More brought pictures of other weddings for us to look at and also fully reviewed the package options so we could find what fit our budget and wishes best. On the day of the wedding they were prompt and stayed for long into the night they the heat and then the rain! Despite the elements they made our day beautiful knowing when to take photos in certain locations based on the sun and weather,etc. not only did they take the photos but they kept us calm and kept the day running on schedule...not to mention helping me with my dress, veil, etc. they sent us a booklet to work on before the wedding to list our group photos, special photos etc and they did not miss one thing we were looking for. as for getting the photos we (Along with comments made by family and friends) were shocked that we had access to the online gallery in as little as 2 weeks. We then got two full albums of our photos by mail and are so thankful we have these to save and enjoy for years to come. I have already suggested Laurel Mountain Photography to friends and family and hope to use them in the future myself (although it won't be for another wedding hahah). We give them 5 stars hands down!!! Thank you so much!! Michelle & Travis.

Read More haven't been to a venue or location before they go out before the day and scout it, I thought this was great. It allowed them to make a game plan for our day so we could get some beautiful photographs! I loved that Anastasia came to where I got ready and Mark went to where my husband was getting ready, afterwards it gave us a wonderful view of the morning the other didn't see. Anastasia and Mark stayed with us the entire day to capture each and every moment. We received our photos within a few weeks of our wedding which was wonderful!!! They have several photography packages listed on their website but work with you to create the best one for you and your wants/needs. We have used Anastasia and Mark for both our engagement photos and our wedding photos, they were amazing to work with and I continue to recommend them to anyone that is looking for a photographer, I will continue to use them in the future!

Photography for me, was the hardest decision that I had made about our wedding day. I was a little overwhelmed when I first started looking. Luckily, I had met prior with a friend and she had made this packet of information with me, outlining different things that she had... Read More learned throughout her own research for her upcoming wedding (Thanks again Nichole!!!). The night we met, we went over a thousand different things, my head was spinning. Finally, at the end of the night, I was just like, if you were me who would you go with? And she is like Laurel Mountain Photography, the one I am going with. I’ve never been happier! So, that night I went home and checked out their website one more time, and I really liked what I had saw and the quality of the photos. I also, had saved a few photos from other photographers and had asked my friend who is also getting into photography if he could rate who he thought had the best pictures and why he thinks they’d be good, etc. Well he also rated Laurel Mountain number one, so I knew, they were who I had to pick. That next Monday, I had emailed them, and got the sweetest response back from Anastasia. I already knew I would like her. We set up an appointment to meet and talk, and fiancé at the time, after meeting her knew right then and there she and Laurel Mountain are who we wanted taking our pictures! We had Anastasia and John, and we couldn’t have been happier. We also decided to do our engagement session with Anastasia, and our pictures turned out fantastic. She even took some with our little puppy! When it came time to meet with her for our last meeting, she had everything organized asked all the questions we would need to make our day go as smoothly as possible. And it did. The day of the wedding Anastasia and her father were awesome, she was such a trooper being pregnant and didn’t let that interfere either. Once, they got started it was like they were barely there and made you feel so comfortable. They made sure all of our favorite photos were captured, and they did their homework on some places that they never shot at before (they went there months before to make sure they knew all the best places to get a photo, the lightening, positions, etc.) they were a blast! We were on our honeymoon when we received our wedding photo site. We were shocked to see how many photos we had, and the fact that we liked them ALL! That’s so hard to do because I usually hate every photo of myself! But not this time. You really can’t go wrong with Laurel Mountain. I know you’ll be happy you picked them! Thanks again for everything!

Read More felt comfortable enough around them to get caught in several fantastic candids which is really saying something since my husband is not a big fan of having his picture taken. He even looks happy and relaxed in the posed photos as well, thank you for that LMP! Each time we met with them or spoke with them before the wedding they were professional but very funny and easy to talk to. The shot book they provided really helped me narrow down the most important shots I wanted to see them take and they really followed through. They took great care and listened to what I wanted and used their artistic ability to capture the best candids and poses that fell in line with what we discussed all day. They were a blast to work with and when things got rolling they were like ninjas taking the candid photos, I forgot they were there that's how good they were! They even performed a miracle for me, one of the most important photos to me was of the look on my husbands face seeing me walk down the aisle for the first time and it was not looking good as a guest was practically in the aisle and so close to my husband that he and his cell phone were all you could see! I was devastated! But LMP pulled through and combined the photo with another so that I was covering the guest and all you could see was my husband looking at me! It saved the day and is a gorgeous photo! If you're looking for a photographer for your wedding I highly recommend LMP, you won't be sorry.

I honestly cannot say enough nice things about Laurel Mountain Photography. We’ve only done our engagement pictures thus far, but after seeing how amazing they turned out I’m positive my wedding photos will be flawless. Let me start by saying I have NOT been an easy client. Due... Read More to some crazy circumstances my wedding date has changed..not once..but TWICE…and each time Anastasia handled it with a smile. I have a difficult time explaining my vision, but Anastasia never had trouble understanding. The team is so talented they can suit your photos to whatever style you want. One of the most important things to me was the level of responsiveness…and LMP nailed it, always prompt in answering any questions I had. Anastasia even took a good deal of time helping us pick a location for our engagement photos. As for the actual shoot, Anastasia made us feel completely at ease. My fiancé and I are not the most photogenic people…but we look like models in our photos! Anastasia kept us laughing, and seemed to enjoy how silly my fiancé and I are. She’ll do anything to get the shot (Including taking off her shoes and wading through the river.) I brought all these silly props and she used them in adorable/creative ways. I couldn’t be any happier with them. Overall we have 180+ photos, with maybe only 4 of them that I wouldn’t want to get GIANT prints of for our home. The pictures took about two weeks to get back to us, exactly like she said they would. I even asked her to make some minor changes to two photos, she had them done the next day and was eager to know if I wanted anything else changed. Attentive, accommodating, fun to be around, and exceedingly talented…what more could you want in a photographer? Two things to note….book early, as popular dates seem to fill up over a year in advance. The other thing is they have packages to suit an assortment of budgets, but they aren’t the cheapest you’ll find. However, it’s very easy to see why! Anastasia is worth her (and my) weight in gold, and trust me, you won’t find a better photographer for less. If you’re looking for typical, better than average, cookie cutter photos, LMP isn’t right for you. However, if you want exemplary, unique, magazine worthy fine art photos don’t bother looking anywhere else, hire Anastasia and her company as soon as you can!
