Get dope photographs to look back on and to share with friends and family.
Imagine a wedding day that is stress-free (and a whole lotta fun!)
"Laura did the planning of picking the hiking spot, building the timeline to perfectly align with the sunset, and of course taking the most ridiculously incredible pictures I have ever seen!"
“As we live out of state, she worked with us to scout locations and craft the perfect timeline...”
"...Laura has an amazing style which truly shows through in her photos."
You'll remember this day for the rest of your life. Make it an epic experience!
Only the best day ever!
Regardless of the guest count, this is still YOUR WEDDING DAY! Eloping doesn't mean you have to have a quick shotgun wedding. You can absolutely fill the day with all of your favorite things. You've chosen to ditch the big wedding for something more unique. Now all you need to do is dream!

Don't worry. This isn't an all-day photoshoot.
I'm here to capture each moment as it unfolds organically.
Having photography coverage of the whole day allows you to share your story with friends and family who weren't present. You can show them everything you experienced. Start to finish.
Plus, photos will be all you have left from the day. Years from now when you look at them, you'll be whisked away remembering how it all felt.
Every photograph you receive will be a high-resolution, edited digital image with unlimited downloads to share with friends and family.
The Sparks in the Forest experience begins with 4 hours of photography coverage. Your day deserves so much more than a 1-2 hour rush job.

Holy shit! You’re really doing it! You relax and soak it all in, I capture every beautiful moment. After you do the damn thing, I always send a couple of teasers/sneak peeks within 24 hours for you both to enjoy. The entire gallery will be delivered in about 4-6 weeks!
We keep in touch and I’ll recommend awesome vendors, help you find a killer location, and create a killer timeline to make the most of your day!
Let’s schedule a time to chat and/or have some drinks over FaceTime or Zoom. You tell me all about your relationship and how awesome it is. You ask any questions you might have for me. If we seem like the right fit for each other, then you sign a contract and pay a retainer to book your day.
hate bland, cookie cutter photographs with awkward posing.
want a relaxed wedding experience full of laughter and fun!
are a lover of experiences over possessions.
I'm a good fit if you...
I don't take on every elopement I'm approached with. This will be one of the most important days of your lives and you should absolutely have vendors that you connect with! It's also important to me to work with couples who share my brand values!
