I am very lucky to have worked with so many amazing clients so far! And because so many of them have been so generous in spreading the love about Laura Boyd Studio, I’m thrilled to say that we were rated by local brides and won The Knot’s Best of Weddings again in 2013. I’ve collected some reviews and testimonials here, both from notes clients have sent me personally and from reviews they have left on third-party websites like The Knot. Take a peek at what people are saying about Laura Boyd Studio…
“If I could give Laura 100 stars, I would. She is A-M-A-Z-I-N-G. From the first time we met, I had a super awesome feeling about her – and let me tell you, it’s only gotten better since! As a hobby photographer, I had a lot of strong feelings about that particular aspect of our wedding. I poured over a lot of sites & met with a fair amount of local photographers, but when I saw Laura’s work, I was sold. She has an amazing eye and her work across the board is stunning. We ended up booking her for both our engagement & wedding photos and the results were beautiful – as evidenced by the endless compliments we get on the albums! I think her work speaks for itself, but I also want to add something about working with Laura – it’s also pretty amazing. She’s warm, funny and easy going – things that we really appreciated throughout the year leading up to the wedding. Did I mention that she’s also really organized and super quick to respond to email? It’s a dream come true for slightly overwhelmed, stressed out brides. Doesn’t sound like you? Trust me, you’ll still appreciate her. Hands down, it was the BEST wedding-related decision we made. We are so happy with the results! (ps: I say life photography because her ability to capture moments – real, heartfelt, emotional moments – is not something that’s limited to weddings. And that shows in her boudoir work, family portraits, newborn photo sessions, etc. We don’t plan on starting a family any time soon, but I know that when we do, we’ll be calling Laura.)”
“Laura is an absolute gem. Her photos are artwork–we feel so blessed to have family portraits that look so ethereal and genuine. Her talent is undeniable and she is an absolute pleasure to work with. We plan to make a Laura photo shoot an annual tradition.”
“Thank you very much for the photo, you sent us last week. Actually, I think it is not a photo, but it is pure art. We are extremely impressed and deeply grateful…. Laura, we really had a great day and are extremely happy that you were on our side. Thank you for that…. Regarding the photo you already sent us and the one that’s on your website, we have the idea that we hit the spot, taking you as our photographer!
“Laura’s photography is amazing. My husband Brian and I had couple’s portraits taken in Central Park, which turned out to look like iconic magazine images! I can’t wait to get photos of our baby taken with Laura – she just has that magic talent to document special moments like no other. In addition to her artistic skills, she is a pleasure to work with – she makes the photo shoot fun! I highly recommend Laura Boyd Studios for anybody looking for world class photography!”
“We got a package with Laura that included a maternity session and shoots of our daughter every three months. As a result, we have a truly priceless record of our baby’s first year.
“Laura is a joy to work with; she instantly puts you at ease with her kindness and humor, and she makes even studio photos feel spontaneous and candid, never posed or stilted. The results speak for themselves; her photos are breathtaking — she creates images that capture the essence of the subject, whether it be a bride or a family or a landscape.
“We have purchased prints, albums, canvases and keepsake boxes from Laura, and each one is of the highest quality, worthy of prominent display in our home. Laura also creates a lovely online slideshow of each session’s photos, and I dare you to get through one without tearing up! I have recommended Laura to countless friends, and wholeheartedly recommend her to Yelp at large, too!”
“I wanted to find a wedding photographer who had the artistic eye to capture the colors, textures, details and emotions of my wedding in a similar style as editorial photographs of fashion and design magazines. I did not want a typical wedding photographer; I wanted a photographer with a modern approach and a creative style. I found this type of talent in Laura Boyd. Laura took photos of both our Friday night Hindu ceremony and welcome dinner; and our Saturday night Christian ceremony and reception. The photographs she took of our wedding surpassed all of our expectations. When my husband and I reviewed the images, we felt that the moments and memories of our wedding weekend in New York City were precisely captured in the most unique and beautiful way. Laura was a pleasure to work with too. Among all of the individuals we worked with to plan our wedding, she was one of our favorites because of her easy going nature and willingness to listen to our needs. Simply stated, you will love your wedding photos if you select Laura Boyd as your wedding photographer.”
“Laura was our photographer for both our engagement shots and our wedding. We also did day-after wedding portraits with her. Laura is absolutely fantastic – She has a great eye and is so easy to work with. All three sets of pictures (engagement, wedding, and day-after) were out of this world. I could frame practically all of them. I’ve had so many people tell me our wedding photos are the most amazing they’ve ever seen (and a lot of them have daughters who have been recently married and they made me promise not to tell their daughter’s they said that!!) Laura is great to work with because 1) the photos will knock your socks off, 2) she responds super quickly to emails, 3) she respects your ideas and incorporates your wishes/ideas into the photos she takes, 4) she makes you feel comfortable and at ease, and 5) she’ll do anything to get a great picture! (We were in Central Park in the FREEZING cold for our day-after portraits to get some AWESOME shots in the snow, and she didn’t flinch or shy away from the frigid temps!) I highly highly recommend her without hesitation.”
“Laura Boyd was the best decision I made for my wedding, besides marrying my husband! We had a country Virginia wedding and from the day I started planning, I knew that I wanted her to capture the day. She was easy to work with in planning and she was fun and professional during the day. The only request my husband had was that he didn’t want to hear clicking during the ceremony. I seriously don’t remember seeing her during the wedding except when we took our pictures after the wedding. Yet, when I got the pictures, she somehow captured every single moment from the day…. even some moments that I was too busy and all over the place to see. Everyone, and I mean everyone loved our pictures! And I can’t count how many of my married friends said, “I wish I had HER for my wedding.” If you are in the NYC or DC area, you can’t go wrong with Laura. Sheer Perfection!”
“ehrich and i had a small, intimate wedding in the park. laura was nothing short of amazing. you feel like you have known her forever when you meet her. she listens to every detail and will do everything in her power to make your vision come true. her pictures are quality! we loved her so much”
“Laura photographed our wedding in New York in May and she did an awesome job. We had to plan our wedding from out of state which is complicated, but she was very informative, helpful, and easy to work with. Her personality is very sweet and layed back and flexible. Her artistic style is very unique and creative which is what led me to choose her without being able to meet her in person untill our wedding day. On our wedding day we went to multiple locations around the city with a limo full of people which provided many challenges which she handled like a dream. She was always very proffesional and understanding. I would reccomend her to everyone for any photogrophy needs.”
“We had Laura as our wedding photographer and she was fantastic. Our wedding was in a hot, hot June day and she was not distracted by the heat for one second. Not only was she on time and into details, she did such a good job in capturing the moments! Oh and also, the presentation box is so awesome and different from what photographers usually offer. We absolutely LOVE our wedding pictures! Thanks so much!”
“Timeless…creative…beautiful works of art…PERFECTION! These are just a few words I have for the Laura Boyd Studio experience. Laura photographed my family on a muggy October day. Bugs flew into my childrens’ eyes for the entire photo shoot! My kids did nothing but complain and run around! Laura stayed relaxed, supportive, and entirely professional as I almost lost it. Sure enough…after five years of dozens of photographers, Laura created the most precious works of art I will ever own. Her photos are the parts of my house most often asked about! I highly reccommend Laura Boyd to anyone who wants quality pics that are one of a kind!”
