Laura Kesler Photography LLC | About

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 was thrilled to have turned my passion for photography into a profession in 2015.  As of July 2018, however, I am no longer taking new clients and am moving in a new direction with regard to my career.

Laura Kesler Photography LLC is a proud supporter of the lifesaving work of Humane Society International (HSI) and donates a portion of sales to support their efforts to combat the dog meat trade.

I am also an affiliate volunteer photographer for two national charitable organizations (Now I Lay Me Down to Sleep, and the Magic Hour Foundation).

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) and Professional Photographers of Washington (PPW).

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. 

Thank you again for stopping by!
