Natural & candid photography


my name is


The face & photographer

behind LDP

If there's one thing I strive for every time I pick up the camera, it's observation. Watching for those little, yet wildly significant moments between people and freezing them into a frame. Oh, and of course remembering to take off the lens cap!

How it all started

The first *digital* camera I ever picked up was back in 2009 from entering youth group competitions to photographing friends' senior portraits, engagement photos, and whatever else I could slap heavy editing and type over for my Facebook cover photos *still cringing*.

Otherwise, you can credit the hundreds of disposables from my childhood for my first introduction to an interest in photography (is that 90s enough for you). Except for back then my thumb covered the lens in half the shots. 

I have humbly come a long way.

Where it's been

In 2020 while working a remote marketing job, I started my side hustle photographing mainly engagements/couples, families, and UCF graduates. Before I knew it I was flying across the country or in the backyards of the most beautiful wedding days capturing couples and their loved ones as they celebrated .I wouldn't have it any other way.

Where it's at

I still love capturing families, grads, and other big life moments but nothing beats a day full of laughter, happy tears, crazy dance moves, and seemingly small but incredibly significant moments as two people in love bring all their loved ones together to start their journey into marriage. Both in digital and film formats!

We are so happy we hired her because it felt like she was a friend instead of just a photographer. Laney works tirelessly to get you your pictures as soon as humanly possible. We got maried and had previews the next day. She is so dedicated to her work and it truly shows[...]
