Hey there! I’m Laurie,
creator and photographer behind Laurie Smoker Photography.
I’m a 28 year old family and wedding photographer, wife to my high school sweetheart, mother to an adorable red headed four year old boy, 6 month old baby girl, and fur mama to my 12 year old husky/malamute mix named Dodger and 9 year old tabby cat named Oliver- just doing life in Salisbury, MD. I’m East Coast born and raised, but having spent 6 years in Lawrence, KS (go Jayhawks!), part of my heart will always belong to the Midwest. I bought my first canon dslr in 2012 and haven’t looked back!
I consider myself an intimate, lifestyle photographer and specialize in families and weddings. Light, sun filled, colorful images are my favorite! My camera bag stays pretty simple- a couple of prime lenses are all I need for most sessions. My goal as a photographer is to create a fun and relaxing environment so I can document families just playing and being themselves. My favorite images are always full of emotion, detail, and movement- the way your daughter twirls in her dress, the way you brush her hair back to kiss her forehead, the excitement in your son’s face when he shows you a new rock or stick he found, and the way you smile and hang on every word he says. Capturing intimate, genuine moments between couples and families is what I live for! I do not shy away from harsh light and shadows. I want to beautifully document the moment for what it is; I fully believe that as a photographer my job is first and foremost to be a story teller. If you are looking for “just one good photo,” studio sessions with lots of props, or searching for the cheapest deal, I’m not your girl- and I’m ok with that!
I am naturally detail oriented and hold myself to high standards in all that I do. Every part of my photography process, from choosing equipment, location scouting and session styling, helping clients plan outfits and session timing, to editing and product packaging/presentation, is thoughtfully done with attention to detail and quality. I pride myself on my quick turnaround time for both online galleries and product delivery. I want my clients to have the best, because you deserve it!
If you are interested in having me document your family or wedding, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org or use the contact form linked at the top of the page. I can’t wait to meet you, hear your story, and create the most beautiful images together!
