Service and Investment
Laurel Mountain Photography is a boutique fine art wedding photography company. We offer highly personalized service and take on a limited number of weddings each year. We take the time to get to know our couples and meet with them multiple times before the wedding. We provide our couples with more than just documentation of their wedding day, we provide them with works of art! We love incorporating beautiful scenery and romantic moments into our photos. This type of photography is the culmination of the profession and it is the defining ability that truly separates our photographers from the rest!
Our packages start at $2499.00 and are all customizable. Each package includes two award-winning photographers, full editing on all proofs, a proof book (that is yours to keep!), a password protected online gallery, and the fully edited proofs on a flash drive with full reprint rights.

History and Background
LMP started as a fine art photography company. We spent our time photographing landscapes and other aspects of nature and sold our prints at art shows and galleries. At one of these shows, a wedding photographer approached us about editing his work. Up until that point we had never considered photographing weddings, but after a lot of research we decided that blending fine art photography with weddings would be the perfect way to turn the captured moments of a wedding day into beautiful works of art! We dove into photographing weddings and loved every minute of it. Most of our weddings now come from referrals and we cannot thank our amazing couples enough for passing our name along to friends and family! To read reviews from past brides, click here!
What to expect as an LMP Couple!
You will have several meetings with your primary photographer leading up to the wedding day. It is so important for us to get to know our couples and make sure we are a good fit. Out of all of the vendors on your wedding day, you are with your photographers the most, so feeling comfortable is key! We want to know your vision for the wedding and we want to see how you interact as a couple. This information helps us when we draw up the plans for your wedding day, including itinerary and shot lists, so that you can enjoy yourself, have as much fun as possible, and stay stress free. Your wedding is a day to savor and enjoy, so live it up and pack in as much fun and romance as you can! Also, don’t be shy about asking our opinions on anything wedding-related. We’ve been to hundreds of weddings and are more than willing to offer advice on scheduling, locations, or anything else you have in mind. Wedding photography is what we do, and love, so we’re happy to share!
Our photographers work in teams of two for weddings, but being a family company means we photograph and practice alongside one another all year long. You are just as likely to find us at a chapel on a summer Saturday as you are to see us taking landscapes, or working out new techniques at a nearby park, in the winter months. The familiarity we’ve developed both as a family and as artists means each photographer knows what to expect from the others and nothing will be missed.
To find out which of us is available for your wedding and to view photographs of their work, e-mail or call us to set up a free consultation.
The Editing Process
We do not put limits on the amount of proofs we edit from each wedding, in fact, it is our standard practice to hand-edit every photograph that we select as a proof! We color correct, adjust exposure, smooth skin, remove shine, and take out any distracting objects in the background of each photo. Once we have all of our color proofs properly adjusted, we move on to the effects. We always include black and white, sepia, one-toned, high dynamic range,
and a number of other effects in our finished products. Below is an example of our editing process.
You can expect to receive anywhere from 700 to over 1000 proofs from your wedding day!
We are located southeast of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA, but we are willing to travel worldwide for your wedding day. There are no travel fees for anywhere in the Pittsburgh, Greensburg, or Altoona regions, and we are also willing to travel to meet you for a free consultation.
If you are interested in a destination wedding, please e-mail us for pricing. To date, we have worked in North Carolina, Virginia, Florida, Hawaii, California and Maryland. Many couples find we are often willing to work with them and it can be cheaper and more convenient to bring us along for a weekend rather than hire local photographers.
Our destination services often include photograph sessions prior, during, and after your wedding day for both you and your family.
Albums and Items
We produce custom designed boutique flush-mount albums, leather traditional wedding albums, coffee table books, any size prints you require, and literally hundreds of other items ranging from coffee mugs to calendars to tapestry paintings. In general, if you have ever seen something with a photograph printed on it, we can produce it and work out a way to include it into your customized package.
We also can post your photographs online in a password-protected or open gallery for your friends and family to view and order photographs if they desire. As a standard practice, all couples receive the digital files to their edited photographs and have the ability to print them on their own for family and friends.
We offer many different portrait sessions, including engagement,
post-wedding (trash-the-dress), boudoir, newborn, maternity, child, family, and senior.
