Laura was fantastic! We live in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada and are getting married in Las Vegas in August 2014, and finding a photographer was the most stressful part for me. I love pictures and they are overall one of the top things that had to be perfect. I went back and forth with Laura for a few weeks with some very bold statements and a lot of reservations. Laura's professionalism was top notch and she made me feel very comfortable. We have just gotten out engagement photos back from Laura and they are AMAZING!!! No words can explain how pleased I am. Laura was very friendly and easy to work with and even with some of our left wing ideas for photos she embraced every photo just the same. I can't wait for the wedding next August to have the opportunity to work with Laura again. In my opinion you won't find a better photographer. Thank you Laura!

Couldn't have asked for anything more from Laura for our Vegas wedding shoot. Had an amazing time during the shoot and the photos are absolutely stunning. We had quite a few location requests and we kept changing our minds and Laura was brilliant with all of it. Turns out all of her own suggestions were better than any of our ideas anyway!

As we live in London we were like fish out of water when it came to what we wanted from our photography. We knew we wanted some cool, laid back, arty wedding photographs, not too staged or formal but we had no idea about how to achieve this. Laura took the reigns and talked us and our driver through the different locations we would visit and managed to make us relax and really enjoy our session. I hate having my photograph taken but with her professional and warm personality I got through it! Not only that, I really enjoyed it and we have some terrific wedding photographs. We were charmed by her and the whole experience and I would highly recommend her a reliable, creative and professional service that is very good value for money.

I was booking my wedding in Las Vegas from New Zealand, so every step of the way I was relying on reviews to help me choose the best options for us. I knew straight away that I wanted to use Laura from Top Banana after I read her reviews and saw her portfolio online.
I contacted Laura by email and almost immediately received a response. She took the time explaining all the different options and made suggestions for photo shoot locations. I think that I must have changed my mind at least three times about where we would have the photos taken and nothing was ever a bother for her.
On the day Laura immediately put us at ease as we started taking photos. Although I told her I liked the more candid photo shoot she made sure we didn't miss any of the important shots. She would tell us how to place ourselves so that she was getting the most flattering shots and would suggest locations that we hadn't thought of. Most importantly she made it a really fun and memorable experience. We loved all the photos that we received and have had so many fantastic comments about them.
Thank you so much Laura for being able to capture our special day exactly as I had imagined.

I am so happy we found Laura and had her capture the moments from our elopement. Laura was wonderful to work with throughout the whole process - from initial email/phone contact, to the day of our event and follow up afterwards, she was always friendly and responsive. We had never been photographed professionally before, and Laura was patient and consultative with us - providing guidance on locations and different natural looking poses. We promptly received our photos a few weeks after our elopement, exactly as promised, and they turned out beautifully. I just can't say enough wonderful things about Laura, I would highly recommend her to anyone looking for a professional fun and fantastic photographer for any event!

When my wife and I decided to go a bit out and have a cliche Elvis wedding, we decided to look for a professional photographer to document the day. We went online and came upon Laura's work. From the time we made our first inquiry over email, to the day she personally delivered our photos, Laura has been nothing less than professional. As with most couples, it was our first photo shoot with a professional photographer and Laura was extremely friendly - putting us at ease, and the photos definitely show. Since we were not familiar with Vegas, we gave her free reign to take us to some of her favorite shooting locations. The places she chose were extremely colorful, vibrant and visually interesting. Unless you are dead set on a particular style or theme, I would recommend you let Laura do what she is best at. She'll make you guys look great.

Laura is amazing! I love her work! She shot both our engagement and wedding photos. Laura is organized, detail oriented, and very easy to talk with. My husband is never really thrilled about having to get his picture taken but Laura was patient and did her best to help him relax. We also had our easily distracted dog in photos and Laura was able to capture many great photos of the three of us. She met with us twice before the wedding to ensure that our expectations would be met and communicated with us throughout the entire process. I had no doubt that our pictures would come out anything less than wonderful. I can't say enough about how awesome Laura is!

I don't know what I would have done if I had not had the luck to hear about Laura at Top Banana Photography! First of all, my pictures were beautiful! They captured our personalities, the light, everything. Family was so happy with them... just fantastic. But also, Laura herself was so helpful, in terms of thinking of great places to shoot the photos, helping us find our way to a good spot, advising us on time and light and poses, etc. If I had the money, I would fly her from Vegas to Colorado to do more photo shoots - for the family receptions, pictures of the kids, anything... she just really is very talented.
