"We used Laura Marchbanks Photography and couldn't have been happier with our decision. Laura met with us at our home and showed us past sessions (wedding and otherwise) to give us a sense of her style. It matched with ours perfectly. She is the perfect balance between classic and modern... incorporating current trends, traditional (timeless) poses, and candid/real moments. She got it all and told the story of our wedding beautifully, using film, light, and timing. To offer a bit context as to our style. We’re younger (mid 20s, early 30s), cosmopolitan professionals with a flair for things that are a little ‘different.’ We love food and wine and consider the PNW the perfect place to live. We hit the trails for outdoor adventures, but clean up regularly for fine dining and wine events. We decorate our home in the ‘Restoration Hardware’ style, but hunt in antique stores to keep things personal. If that’s you, then you’ll love Laura’s style. An added bonus was Laura’s knowledge of weddings in general. It felt like we had another wedding planner with us through the entire process only it was our photographer. Simply amazing service. I can’t recommend Laura enough she helped make our special day one of a kind."
"Laura is amazing! We live in Illinois, but wanted to get married near Seattle because it is such a special place for the two of us. Laura made time to meet with us in-person during her maternity leave, since it was the only time we were able to get out to Seattle before the wedding. She is so warm and caring, and made us feel as though we were her only clients...even from across the country! She was always available to answer questions, and she helped us create a thoughtful list of "must-have" family portraits so that on the big day, we didn't forget. We had a small wedding (around 35 people made the trek from the midwest to join us) and every single one of our guests has told us how warm, welcoming, and wonderful Laura was. She made the time to learn about us and really understand the vibe we wanted to create for our wedding and reception, and she was an essential part of making our day totally amazing. Working with her on our album was fun, too - she put the story of our wedding together in the most beautiful way. We are already talking about "throwing the party again" for our 10th anniversary, and we hope Laura will be a part of that day, too!"
"We are so happy we were referred to Laura and that she was available to photograph our wedding. After meeting with her the first time I knew she could do the job. She not only did the job, but so much more! The entire process went very smoothly, she was organized and made everything easy on us. She is fun, happy, professional and has perfected the wedding photographer job:)"
