Hi! I'm Laura Brenden.
I've been a wedding photographer since 2017. My first wedding was a good friend that put a lot of trust in me and I've been building trust with my couples ever since.
My passion has been photography since I was a teenager and I followed that dream into college where I received a Bachelor's in Photography from Northern Arizona University. I photograph people in an artistic yet natural way. I like to think of it as photojournalism and always try to get candid and real moments from people. When I'm not behind the camera, I'm usually hanging out with my family (toddler, husband, and many siblings). We are fixing up our 1960s home & eating our way through the awesome restaurants in the cities.
I've also joined a real estate team- Pentz Homes- as a buyer's agent. I'm so excited about helping couples along their wedding journey and helping them buy homes (especially first time home buyers!). Every photo client that buys with me also receives $599 off their transaction fee (say what!?)
-I listen to true crime podcasts daily
-I love supporting local businesses (oh you sell honey? I'll buy that. Oh, crystals?! Sold!)
-I love mountain biking, hiking, skiing, and kayaking (cannot say I'm great at any of them)
-I have a degree in Fine Arts as well as Photography
-I'm a total cat person (I have a Maine Coon named Lenny and he's what we call a "puppy kitty")
My only published photo is of my late cat featured in an LGBTQ+ Calendar (super cool, but I need to add more to my repertoire)

Laura is AMAZING! If you don’t have her as your photographer then get on it ! She is so easy to work with, very comfortable, easy to talk to. She makes sure everything is set perfectly to get the shot. She will point out the little things like fixing ur hair or give suggestions on different poses! So happy I found her she will definitely be doing ALL my professional photos from now on :)
