Hello there - thanks for stopping by!
I'm Laura - Laura Kesler Photography's owner and primary photographer.
I have been honing my craft since 2010 and am thrilled to have turned my passion for photography into a profession in 2015 (I'm also a licensed attorney and a retired military veteran) while living in North Carolina. In August 2017, I relocated to Washington state, where I now serve the Washington and northern Oregon regions.
Laura Kesler Photography LLC is registered with the Washington Secretary of State and is accepting bookings for weddings, portraits, and events scheduled through 2019.
Laura Kesler Photography LLC is a proud supporter of the lifesaving work of Humane Society International (HSI) and donates a portion of all sales to support their efforts to combat the dog meat trade.
In terms of my education and experience, I hold an LLM and Juris Doctorate Degree in Law, a Bachelor's Degree in Political Science, and an Associate's Degree in Photography & Media Arts. I am a member of the Professional Photographers of America (PPA), Professional Photographers of Washington (PPW), and Lakewood, Washington Chamber of Commerce.
In 2016, Expertise.com named me as one of Fayetteville, North Carolina's Best Wedding Photographers, and I provide the same high level of customer service and quality products to my clients in my new home state of Washington.
My business values mirror my personal ones: integrity, diligence, attention to detail, service to others, and a strong work ethic.
Laura Kesler Photography LLC's area of coverage includes Centralia, Chehalis, Joint Base Lewis McChord, Lacey, Lakewood, Olympia, Puyallup, Tacoma, Yakima, Yelm, and surrounding areas. Laura Kesler Photography LLC has limited availability for weddings, portraits, and events in northern Oregon as well.
My husband Chris sometimes helps behind the scenes here at Laura Kesler Photography as well, and has been honing his photography skills for more than five years. Like me, he is a member of PPA and PPW. Chris can often be spotted setting up lighting and equipment and serving as an assistant photographer at some of my photoshoots and sessions.
I am excited and ready to put my talent, creativity, and technical knowledge to use in capturing the important people, places, and events in your life, and to offer heirloom-quality images, prints, and keepsakes - ones designed to be passed down from generation to generation.
Please feel free to look around my website. Check out portfolio samples and my photography collections and packages. Contact me for more information or to book me.
Thank you again for stopping by. Hope to hear from you soon!
