  • I hired Laurie to film and photograph our proposal. I was looking for someone to capture my proposal to my then girlfriend. Someone who would capture all of the emotions of this special moment in our lives so we can share with our family and friends. The entire experience working with her was extremely positive and I am very happy with my decision. Laurie was very responsive, accomodating, helpful, and friendly throughout the entire process. I initially found Laurie when researching proposal photographers online. She had stellar reviews on multiple sites and her background in Entertainment was the perfect fit for what I was looking for. My proposal was very unique, so I wasn't sure if she would even be willing to help. While all the other photographers either didnt respond or said they could only photograph or film the proposal, Laurie was more than happy to assist with both. In fact, in her first email she even told me the exact camera equipment she was planning to use for the ni... Read more

    Dear Brett, Thank you so much for the incredibly detailed review! Filming your proposal was one of the highlights of my year. When we spoke on the phone for the first time and you told me your plan to propose to your girlfriend, I was filled with emotion and so excited to capture it. You pulled off something that most people probably wouldn't have the patience to do, given all the changing scenarios. Congratulations! It was a huge success!! I loved being a part of your plan!

  • We used Laurie for our wedding 5/6/19. She was very professional, on time and made us feel comfortable while taking the pictures. My wife was nervous about the whole process. Laurie, went the extra mile; and gave her some great advise, and made her laughed. That was thoughtful of her to do. The pictures were awesome, editing was perfect not too photoshopped just right. Overall, 10/10 experience, will be using her again to capture more of our life’s milestones.

    Thank you so much! I loved working with you both on that day in May. I especially loved the photos with the pink blossom carpeting!

  • Laurie was so easy to work with and got our style, which was pretty low key casual. Impressed she scouted potential sites the week before the wedding to see what the light would be like. We shot at five or six sites at her suggestion (all in close proximity) so we have a variety of backgrounds to choose from. 30 in my immediate family and even the group shots came out great. We loved the posed and casual shots and the black and whites were among our favorites.

  • Laurie is an absolute gem. During my initial search for a wedding photographer, I was looking for someone who not only took beautiful, well-angled, well-proportioned photos, but also someone who was able to capture the in-between moments of a wedding, where you can clearly see the personalities of the people in the photo. As we looked through our wedding photos, my wife and I felt transported back to the wedding itself; we were re-experiencing all the emotions we felt during our wonderful wedding. I have no doubt in my mind that it was all thanks to Laurie. She was able to take our humble gathering of friends and family and turn it into the same magical day that we experienced. The photos made us look like celebrities. Just one look at her wedding blog (https://www.laurierhodes.com/blog/) you can see that she does that for every single couple she works with, no matter how big or small the wedding is. If I were to go back in time to do it all over again, I wouldn't hesitate to choose... Read more

  • I can’t say enough about Laurie. First the pictures she took are just wonderful. And so is she! Laurie has the perfect balance of knowing when to stay in the background and when to be a bit more assertive and in a bustling and confusing wedding that’s so crucial. She even stepped in to help us manage our videographer (who did not have that balance) and we were so grateful. She just made the whole experience of working with her seamless and joyful. And we LOVE our photos! Truly a professional.

  • We had our wedding at The Hoxton, Williamsburg on October 5, 2019 and Laurie Rhodes captured it perfectly!! We had 125 guests and after sharing the photos with them, each and every single one of them was blown away on how perfectly Laurie photographed the evening. We had our ceremony and cocktail hour on The Summerly Rooftop and Laurie photographed it flawlessly -- in the bright sun and then with it setting! My husband and I are an interracial couple too, which added a complexity to photographing us but every photo, we both look great!! We then moved into The Apartment for our reception/party and everyone was in awe of how Laurie photographed both the space and all our attendees in dimmer lighting! Indeed, Laurie took the perfect mix of candid and staged photos, capturing all of our friends, family and us throughout the entire evening wonderfully. Stated simply, our guests were blown away by Laurie's attention to detail and letting her take photos seamlessly the entire evening, f... Read more

    Dear Tony, Wow, thank you so much for your incredibly detailed review! I loved working with you and Brian starting with the engagement shoot and then the wedding. Thank you for being so flexible with my portrait locations! ;-). I wish we could do it again as well. I miss you both!

  • Laurie is incredible. She was at the venue in advance and prepared. She took incredibly beautiful photos that will help us preserve the day. And she helped us navigate the day with her extensive wedding knowledge. She was also wonderful at helping add some levity at key moments when needed.

    Thank you Judy! I loved photographing your niece and her husband - such a sweet couple! I'm thrilled we had a nice day and could take the portraits outside in NYC!

  • Our experience with Laurie Rhodes was spectacular. Our wedding photos are beyond words to explain. She captured every special moment from just posing to everyone dancing. Laurie is very professional and takes her job seriously to provide the best. We were blessed to have her as our photographer. We love every photo she provided.

    Dear Yomy, Thank you so much for the review! From our first meeting at the New Leaf Cafe, I knew your wedding was going to be amazing. I loved working with you and Freddy and your boys. The love was flowing between all of you and your family and friends. I loved being part of it and capturing all those moments.

    Thank you so much Peter for leaving a review of my photography services for your wedding this past July! I really enjoying getting to know you and Camber well before the wedding and hearing about your relationship and especially about your preference for candid photos. I live to capture candids! All the best to you and Camber!

  • Laurie's photos truly reflect who we are as a couple, and her years of experience are so evident in the quality. Laurie's well-honed eye as an artist is matched by her technical abilities and refined use of them. This, IMHO is one of the most important ingredients to having timeless photos that never look dated; compositions, color corrections, and captured moments that are all spot on and technically top-notch. Laurie is a photographer's photographer, and we were so lucky she squeezed us into her schedule.

  • Laurie is the photographer you are looking for. Rest assured, you'll be meeting a wonderful person whose kindness and warmth will not only make you and your partner feel comfortable - but all your guests at your wedding day or special event. You might wonder "how will the photos turn out?" Or "will they be special? Will she capture my feelings and all the love we felt on our day?" And guess what ... she will! Laurie's docu-style photography is an art one can't just master by being "good" you have to have that extra sense and appreciation for social connections, interactions and emotions which I know Laurie unquestionably has. Finally, as a gay couple getting married ,we wanted someone who "got us" and understood the relationships we had with various people .. such as our girlfriends or gay best friend or even siblings etc. Laurie got it! I could go on and on but I'll say it again - if you're lucky enough to book Laurie - just smile and know you're in good hands. Even videos won't captu... Read more

  • Laurie was very professional and loves what she does. She set up an appointment to meet me at the venue 1 week before the wedding to scout indoor and outdoor locations to shoot. She also wanted to meet at the same time as the wedding to get an idea of sunlight and shades both indoors and outdoors to plan her shoot. She arrived a bit early to get situated and photographed the bride in her room prior to the ceremony. She took guidance well to my wedding outline. She took plenty of pictures and we were very pleased with the outcome.

    Thank you Justin! It was such a pleasure to work with you before the wedding and to be a part of such an exciting celebration!

  • Wow, its hard to imagine what I could say to properly explain our experience with Laurie- she was SO amazing from start to finish!! Setting up our initial meeting, she got back to us in less than 24 hours of our initial request - and scheduling with her was a breeze. The minute we met her, we knew she was going to be our pick - her photography is gorgeous, and her aura is incredibly assuring and calming. She was so courteous and professional and would check in with us every few weeks until our wedding day. Laurie was so accommodating, and really made us feel that she was invested in our day, and in helping us to capture it the way we wanted. We took engagement photos as well, and she gave us suggestions on where to go and helped us to feel comfortable being photographed, even though I hate being in front of a lens! She captured the most beautiful shots at our wedding that truly encompass the whole feeling of our day. The photos were artistic and beautifully framed, but more than anythi... Read more
