I am a Sonoma County wedding photographer with a focus on outdoor weddings because I love people who are drawn to nature and outdoor beauty. That’s how my career in weddings began more than 20 years ago.
I wanted to capture people's love stories on one of the best days of their lives. Walking in the vineyards, riding on your horse, taking photos in a vast field while the sun sets or a romantic walk on the beach. If that's your idea of a fairy-tale wedding photo session, then we should meet.

Riding my horse, King, four times a week
Gardening (I have a green thumb)
Hiking and watching The Voice
Spending time at the coast with my man
Meeting clients, taking photos and creating memories
When I got King about six years ago, it started an amazing journey. Being with him is very spiritual to me. I am planning on taking a few trips to photograph wild horses in their natural habitat.
I have two bright and sweet children, and two adorable grandchildren. I also have a terrier mix pup named Maxwell and a black lab named Pupster. I have three cats — Powder Puff, Black Cat and Mr. Kitty.
I have a sweet tooth!
Nature makes my heart happy. I love to hike and spend the day breathing fresh air, seeing nature growing and changing. I live in the country where I see wild turkeys, birds, deer and raccoons almost every day.
Capturing that one perfect moment that makes you tear up with emotion!
"Laurie is nothing short
She went above and beyond my expectations. I love romantic style pictures with lots of light flares and all our pictures turned out amazing. She is a great listener and will make you feel comfortable in front of the camera. Can't say enough about this wonderful person

Laurie was a dream come true to have as my wedding photographer! We all know weddings can be stressful but she was so positive, sweet and fun the entire time. It was a breath of fresh air knowing that I could enjoy my day and not worry about the photography. There was not a moment of our special day that was missed.

" I would recommend Laurie Ann Martin to anyone who wants a great photographer and wants some really wonderful and creative pictures of their wedding. I could not have been happier with her services. Truly a great experience working with her. "
Laurie and Roy did SUCH an amazing job capturing the beauty of our wedding! Not only were the pictures and video incredibly beautiful, but their personalities and attitudes added to the positivity of the day. They were truly able to capture the beauty of the day. Our wedding day wouldn’t have been the same without Laurie and Roy!
