meghan + hannes | quaint alleyway at sunset engagement session

These two like to laugh.

They show absolutely no fear when it comes to being lovey dovey on camera, which just makes my job easy as PIE.

They play like kids, hold hands while they push their bikes, and they make sure that not too much time passes between each kiss... I'm so excited to share these images from Meghan and Hannes' engagement session!!'re stunning! No wonder he can't take his eyes off you!

I'm seriously smitten with their second outfit choices...and let me just gush for a moment about Meghan's flowers from the garden that she brought with us! 

Did I mention I love props at an engagement session?

We found this beautiful spot where the sunset poked in through the trees, and I was in heaven!! It lasted for only 5 minutes, but they rocked out every second of it :)

Meghan and Hannes...I can't WAIT for your wedding in February!!!

fall mini sessions!

By now, you guys totally know the drill...

Mini sessions are here again -- and they're going quick! I think at this very moment I only have 10 spots remaining. Send me an email to book your spot!


Mini sessions are perfect for families, babies, couples, or even newly single people who need a killer profile pic ;)

The sessions will last roughly 30 minutes, and I'll include 30 photos in a digital collection for you to download, save, and share however you'd like! At $200 per session -- it's perfect for everyone!

Can't wait to share some of 
this Fall goodness on the blog!!

{featured: style me pretty} sarah walsh bridal photo shoot!

I am SO excited to share this link to a brand new feature in Style Me Pretty, especially because these photos are JAM PACKED with so many things I love!

Take, for instance, the amazingly talented Sarah Walsh...

We've become such great friends this year and her business efforts have made me want to be a better entrepreneur. 

There is nothing better than beautiful bridal accessories, and models who are all dear friends. Kim, Kristie, and the two Brittany's... we couldn't have done this without you. So incredibly thankful!

And as always, here's a little peek at what the complete gallery has to offer...

I love that Style Me Pretty included almost every single photo from our shoot!! Seeing Sarah's pieces displayed like this makes me SO happy for her :)

How's THAT for a great start to the week?!

melissa + mike | sweet arboretum engagement

Melissa and Mike are getting married in only a few months and I'm so very excited about their day!

Enjoy a few of my favourite photos from their musical engagement session in the park...

LOVE this ring -- and here's a sneak peek at Melissa & Mike's handmade wedding decor!

Mike brought along his guitar to serenade his future wife :) It's so nice to incorporate details like this into an engagement session! And for someone as musical as Mike, it was a no brainer. Apparently this theme will carry into the wedding day too!

And finally...a few images to celebrate their loyalty to the Jays :)

Also, I'm so excited to announce the winner of Tuesday's GIVEAWAY!!



Congrats, girl! I'm so excited to see what you do with 
your lovely set of Origrami prints!

origrami prints!! (& a GIVEAWAY!)

I have something SO FUN to share today!!

A little while ago, I stumbled upon Origrami's website, and fell instantly in love. You see...they bring your favourite instagram photos to life by printing them on these adorable polaroid-sized cards!

I was so excited to find that my package arrived in the mail yesterday, perfectly safe after a long journey from Australia...

One of the best parts is the info on the back of each card, including the date you posted it, your intagram comment, anddddd if you added the photo to your photo-map, that map will show up on the back! GENIUS!

I love this photo from Mexico :)

I'm so excited about this product that I'm giving away a gift-card that's good for one set of 36 retroprints this week!


1. Follow @laurakellyphoto on instagram.

2. Leave a comment on this blog post about what you would 
do with your lovely polaroids! 
("anonymous" comments are fine as long as you include your name at the end!)

The winner will be chosen Thursday morning and announced on the blog. We'll then be in touch by email so I can mail the gift-card off to you :)

I'm really excited to figure out how to incorporate these prints in my home! But most of all, I'm so happy to be able to share this photo-goodness with someone else -- because this purchase really brightened my week!

And because I might be Instagram's biggest fan...
