IN 2011 I STARTED MY BUSINESS AS A BOUTIQUE WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER.

I GREW THAT BUSINESS BEYOND MY WILDEST DREAMS, AND FORMED A REPUTATION AS ONE OF THE TOP WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHERS IN OTTAWA.

SINCE THEN, A LOT HAS CHANGED.

If you found me on Google, you were probably searching for the best wedding photographer in Ottawa.

Well, you found me! Except there's one tiny little hiccup... (keep reading! your girl loves to drag out a story.)

AND I'M MAKING THE LIFE OF MY DREAMS, ON MY OWN TERMS.

HEY, I'M LAURA KELLY!
2011
STARTED A BOUTIQUE WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHY BUSINESS FROM MY CORPORATE CUBICLE.

FOCUSED ON BUILDING A KILLER REPUTATION IN THE CITY AND FOUND MY STRIDE AS THE LUXURY WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER FOR HAPPY PEOPLE. 
BASKED IN THE GLORY OF having created the business of my dreams, BUT QUICKLY REALIZED I DIDN'T HAVE ANY OTHER GOALS I WANTED TO ACHIEVE with it.

KEY REALIZATION: THERE WAS GOING TO BE A SECOND CAREER.
MY PODCAST, "YOU MIGHT NOT LIKE IT," BEGAN AS A WAY FOR ME TO DOCUMENT THE JOURNEY OF FINDING SOMETHING I LOVED EVEN MORE THAN PHOTOGRAPHY.
TRIED MY HAND AT BRAND MESSAGING / COPYWRITING, BUT MY PASSION ALWAYS BROUGHT ME BACK TO CONFIDENCE AND OVERALL LIFE FULFILLMENT.
STARTED A transformational PROGRAM CALLED CHEER CAMP TO HELP OTHER CREATIVE SMALL BUSINESS OWNERS HARNESS THE CONFIDENCE TO pursue the goals they truly care about.

I STILL FIND TIME FOR 2-3 PHOTO SESSIONS PER MONTH. CHECK OUT WHAT'S ON THE PHOTOGRAPHY MENU BELOW!

BRANDING & SMALL BUSINESS PHOTOGRAPHY

Some people call it a social media shoot, a headshot session, lifestyle / brand photography, etc.

For me, a branding session encompasses everything from "stock" style photos to promote your products or services, headshots, casual candids to promote you and your work, studio/location tours, and everything in between.

$625 +HST
CASUAL LIFESTYLE PHOTOGRAPHY

Every season I take on a handful of sessions to document the big milestones. A maternity session, a lifestyle newborn session, a milestone anniversary, etc.

My style is light, casual, and focused on documenting the JOY at every stage! I also love to mix it up with candids, natural-looking posed shots, and closeup details.

$625 +HST

INCLUDES: 50 edited photos in an online gallery

WEEKDAY WEDDINGS & ELOPMENTS

My business used to be so weekend heavy, but that doesn't serve me in my pursuit of creating the life of my dreams! For 2022 and 2023 I'm happy to open my books for the occasional weekday wedding or elopement. 

Make sure you drop me a detailed note about your plans!
