A William Penn Inn Wedding - Laura Lee Photography

Hi! I'm Laura!

I’m a wedding and brand photographer for creative and adventurous hearts and and your resident work-life balance aficionado. I’m so glad you’re here!
My favorite thing in life is sitting out by my fire-pit with a glass of Riesling and a s’more in hand with friends and family surrounding me. I'm rarely ever found without a warm blanket wrapped around me, and If my wallet didn't frown upon it, I’d probably buy everything in Anthropologie Home and Free People.

When two of your most incredible friends get married, your boyfriend and college friend are in the groomsman party, the dog is wearing a bowtie, the guys are playing with ice axes, the bride is STUNNING in her Nicole Miller Bridal gown, the fall foliage is absolutely PERFECT, and you get to shoot a wedding at the William Penn Inn and then change into a gala dress halfway through the reception to be a guest, you KNOW it’s going to be a damn good wedding. Well, let me tell you how much Andrew and Faith’s beautiful fall William Penn Inn Wedding did not disappoint.

From the second we arrived at the rehearsal dinner I could feel the emotions coming on. I seriously love all my couples and I feel so honored when someone trusts me to tell their story, and then add on top of that that they are two dear friends and you just reach a whole new level of emotions!

I got the pleasure of meeting Andrew and Faith when I was back in college at Philadelphia University, I think the first time I met Andrew was when a few of us went to Colorado for a ski trip! He and my boyfriend have been great friends since college and since Faith is one of the most awesome people I know, we have gone on a number of great adventures together and we became quick friends. They both attended Philadelphia University as well and led the Cross Country teams.  They started dating their Junior Year of college and the rest is a long history of adventures, rock-climbing, hiking, off-roading, and playing with their amazing pup Calvin! I feel so honored that I get to experience so many adventures with them and know we will continue to do so for a lifetime.

While Faith was getting ready at the hotel, the guys were at Andrew’s parents house playing with guns, and ice axes… typical pre-wedding festivities right?

And then came party time. I might be biased because I also got to be a guest and had a super cute and handsome date and all my friends surrounding me, but it was one of the best receptions ever! Midnight Hour was their band and they rocked it all night! I think you’ll be able to tell from the pictures just how much fun we had! I’ve been looking forward to this day for a long time and to be totally honest I’m really sad it’s over! Can you guys have an annual anniversary party? Sigh.
