I'm often asked how I got started in photography, and the truth is...kind of by accident! During my undergrad I photographed my best friends' engagement photos, and the excitement blossomed from there! When I graduated with my master's I entered the real world with a "big girl" job, but I quickly realized where my heart was truly meant to be...photographing weddings + families. And I've been here ever since! 

During the week, you can find me in my pajamas (or yoga pants if I'm feeling fancy), trying to keep my kids from chasing the chihuahuas + managing the chaos with my manchild by my side (he likes to be called Cory). 

On the weekends, you'll find me shooting weddings, geeking out over pretty sunsets + their golden light, crying during a father daughter dance + providing an easy, fun experience for my couples. 

I love podcasts, rainy days, sleeping in and an ice-cold diet coke. I believe that date nights are the most important part of a marriage, even if it's just playing a board game. The episode where Jim + Pam get married will always make me cry. And if you email me, expect heavy use of emojis 😝

and if binging entire netflix seasons in a day were a sport,
i'd be a gold medalist

I've been skydiving twice and I'd go 100 times if I could!


My favorite date nights usually include board games + hanging out on the patio of a brewery


My littles are named Micah + Nolan, and they are 12 months apart (FYI, don't do that to yourself. Ever. 😆)

I'd choose listening to a podcast over music any day...my favorites are Crime Junkie + Dateline


all the fun random stuff about me

Our wedding pictures turned out better than we could have imaged. LJP captured all the vital moments of our day and so much more. She is organized and even helped us with the layout/small planning details of our wedding day. She goes above and beyond. She was a joy to be around and helped ensure that the day ran smoothly. I cannot say enough kind things about Laci. Highly recommend! Thank you Laci, for being so personable, down to earth, and talented! We will be able to relive our wedding day thanks to you.  -Dana + Drake

"she was a joy to be around and helped ensure that the day ran smoothly"

Our wedding day was just absolutely beautiful, couldn't ask for a more perfect day. She was great and we had so many people ask who our photographer was because if there was a moment that needed a picture she got it. She was all over the place and our pictures turned out absolutely breathtaking. We loved her and I would recommend her to anyone! So easy to get along and work with and if I had any questions I could text her and she would get back to me super quick. She is hands down amazing at her job! If you're looking for a photographer for your special day she is your girl and you wont be disappointed! Thank you again Laci, you're amazing!" -Jess + Courtney

"We loved her and I would recommend her to anyone!"

Laci was such a blessing when it came to our big day! We took engagement photos with her a few months before the wedding and we knew from the very beginning that she cared about US and wanted to do whatever she could to help us have the best wedding day ever!! Laci took the awkwardness out of engagement/wedding photos and made it a fun and memorable experience! She offered up suggestions for poses but was always down to try something we had in mind! Her organization before the big day made everything run smoothly and helped alleviate any possible stress the day of! I cannot recommend her enough to anyone looking for the perfect person to capture their day!! Thank you Laci!!  -Logan + Selene

"Laci took the awkwardness out of engagement/wedding photos and made it a fun and memorable experience!"

We highly recommend LaciJane Photography. Her professionalism and “get it done” attitude is what every bride needs on their wedding day! We also had our engagement pictures with her and her tips and tricks really made them turn out perfect. She notices all of the small details; i.e. a piece of hair out of wack, or a hair tie on your wrist. Who doesn’t want such a sharp eye on their wedding day?! She makes your entire day run smoothly! There are SO MANY great things I can say about this photographer but one thing that really sticks out about her is her quick response time. With all of my small non-sense questions, Laci was right there to text or message me back. She is always available. The kindness and humor that radiate from her can and will make any special day go great! Again, we HIGHLY recommend.   -Kyle + Paris
