Meet Laurel McConnell, who describes herself as chief photographer, cocktail maker and janitor. She forgot about a thousand other descriptors, including entrepreneurial, clever, mischievous, FUN. This girl is serious fun.TELL US ABOUT LAUREL McCONNELL PHOTOGRAPHY
Throughout the last 16 years, I’ve photographed weddings in hurricanes and dust storms, on islands and in snow, multi-day cultural events and 1.5 minute ceremonies on New Year’s Eve, and have documented love in America and not-America. I learned photography from the basics up at art school on actual film, evolving alongside the digital industry and refining my craft as went. Even though I’ve spearheaded worldwide commercial advertising shoots and have been commissioned to photograph A-List celebs and VIPs, I still love the intimacy of a wedding; each one brings an exhilarating challenge, warmness, and uniqueness that I am ever thankful for!
WHAT DO YOUR CLIENTS SAY ABOUT WORKING WITH YOU?
They have so much fun :). Often we become great friends after we shoot together, and always keep in touch over the years!
WHAT INSPIRES YOU TO GIVE, AND HOW LONG HAVE YOU BEEN INVOLVED?
I’ve been a VP, board member, or vendor each year, and sometimes all three!
The 10 year milestone is a big one. We never dreamed our organization would have flourished this way- touching nearly each person in this industry and helping so many people realize their dreams along the way …. I kinda wish I could travel back in time and show the 10-year-ago us how amazing this organization has become 🙂
