Hi there! I'm Lauretta

I am your...


Your story isn't cookie-cutter.
Your photos shouldn't be either.

I believe in the power of human connection. 
I prioritize moments over poses so that you can focus on what truly matters in life... and SHINE, inside and out.

I split my time between Washington DC and Cabarete, Dominican Republic, and love to travel worldwide.

"She truly captured the essence of my brand"

Laura was amazing to work with! My session was delayed because of the pandemic, but Laura was super flexible and very responsive to my changing timeframe. When the day finally came, Laura made the branding session comfortable and fun. I tend to be nervous in front of a camera, but Laura put me at ease. She truly captured the essence of my brand, and for the first time, I loved every single photo! I'm already planning my next photoshoot with her! I highly recommend Laura for small business owners looking to rebrand or refresh your online presence!

 "she made us feel so relaxed and we ended up having a lot of fun!"

I had a hard time choosing a photographer for my wedding because I wanted my pictures to be perfect. I'm so glad I was able to find Laurentina Photography! We knew she was the photographer for us when she took our engagement photos. Not only was she easy to work with, she made us feel so relaxed and we ended up having a lot of fun! And when it came to our wedding day, we already knew we were in good hands. Our photos turned out amazing and we couldn't be more grateful!

"She truly exceeded my expectations."

I secured Laurentina Photography for my Ribbon Cutting. Laura captured every moment without being intrusive. Most of the time I didn’t realize she was there until I reviewed the shots later.  During posed pictures, she provided subtle cues to get photography that looked professional without being stiff. Additionally, she captured candid conversation shots with an artist's eye and special moments like a hug with my family. I am so very grateful to her as I now have these professional photographs to showcase the event for use on my website and for future marketing. She truly exceeded my expectations.

"our wedding video is magical."

We loved working with Laura! She was our videographer (along with her second video shooter) and our wedding video is magical. We're so grateful for how she documented our day - and we received a highlight reel, a regular video (6ish min), and then a FULL documentary-type video of all the ceremony, dances, speeches, and more. My brother-in-law's speech in particular was so moving, and for that reason alone, I'm so so grateful we have an awesome full video of everything. Thank you, Laura, for documenting our day so beautifully! (Laura also did our engagement video and, again, MAGICAL!)”

"The pictures turned out better than I could have ever imagined." 

“Laurentina Photography was absolutely amazing for our wedding day! Complimentary engagement photos where she came to us, and was willing to try crazy locations. As the wedding got closer, I got very sick- and Laura knew how to make the most of the energy I could muster for our big day. The pictures turned out better than I could have ever imagined. We will be using Laura for all big events to come in the future!”
