Welcome to my practice! As a photographer, I have the privilege of having people welcome me into some of the most important occasions of their lives. The opportunity to capture these precious moments and the trust I am given to do so is a deep honor I do not take for granted. Whether it is your wedding day, corporate event, or simply the beautiful, everyday movements of families, I am committed to excellence and my client’s satisfaction.

- Laura Ashbrook Burke | Owner/Principal Photographer


Laura possesses an authentic love for people, genuine interest in her clients, a deep emotional investment in her practice, and the innate ability to create a safe and relaxed environment for all involved. With these traits, she is able to make everyone feel comfortable in front of the camera and look their best in photographs, bringing out the natural beauty in her subjects and their surroundings.

This, combined with her exceptional technical and artistic ability, allows her to achieve a balance of timeless beauty with a fresh and modern edge. The resulting series of images appear simple, yet contain a complex blend of beauty, creativity, and technical expertise. They are photographs that both capture the memory, and honor it.


Laura comes from a family of photographers, and spent much of her early young adult life assisting on photoshoots and helping with the business. In college she looked to make the practice her own, pursuing a degree in fine art and photography to further hone her craft. After completing her degree, she naturally gravitated towards wedding and portrait photography, and successfully transitioned into starting her own company in 2007.
