Fiji and Beyond

BULA from Fiji!

 

I’m Laura, a wife to Ray, a mother to three girls, a director of a non-profit, and a photographer.  I love connecting with people here in this beautiful country where I’ve lived for 18 years.

 

Photography is my passion.  It’s seriously such a privilege to share in these beautiful moments with couples, families or individuals, and it’s not a job I take lightly.  Even with 100+ weddings under my belt and many portrait/family shoots, I am still in love with this job and the opportunities it presents to connect with people.

 

I love creating beautiful, artistic images that capture the moments you want to remember forever.  I am available for weddings, portraits, travel and water photography.  My husband Ray joins me as a second-shooter when needed, and helps with aerial and water photography.

 

Welcome to my website. . . please have a look and drop me a note if you’d like to talk more about photography.   Click below for more about me and my photography.

 

I’m looking forward to meeting you!

Talia + Dan : Mana Island

Talia + Dan : Mana Island

Talia and Dan's wedding remains one of my favourite weddings of all time. They were so in love, and so enjoyed every single detail of their beautiful day. The beach was perfect, and the reception followed on the same private stretch of white sand that they married on. They also had a gorgeous Drown the Gown session the next day, which was amazing!

Lara + David: Lomani Island Resort

I loved Lara and David's wedding because it was so personal and so full of joy. The look on David's face when Lara walked through the palm trees to their beach ceremony was priceless! The couple married on the Lomani Island Resort beach (adults only), and the next day we boated out to the Malolo Sand Bar for an epic Sand and Sea session!

Donna and Nathan had the most simple, beautiful elopement at Namale. They wanted to incorporate horses into their wedding and so we got some beautiful shots on the beach with horses in Donna's second gown. I loved the tropical vibe of the entire wedding.

Charlotte and Morgan's wedding was stress-free, full of golden light, smiles and the laughing of children. We were blessed with a gorgeous sunset and an amazing beach setting. Simple perfection.

Kind Words

“ . . . coming from Australia it was a little scary to know we had never met our wedding photographer, but I was at ease the moment I met Laura. She is a wonderful and talented photographer with a beautiful soul and now I couldn’t imagine anyone else to have photographed our special day. Thank you Laura for bringing the best day of our lives to life in our beautiful photos.” – Melissa
