about

a photographer who cares,
 & photos that prove it.

I want you to remember what it felt like.

To walk back down the aisle as a married couple, to cry tears of laughter during the best man's speech. To hold your baby's tiny fingers, to dress them in your favorite onesie. To hear your children's laughter as they chase seagulls and "accidentally" get their cute outfits wet in the waves, as children do. 

My style: capturing natural, joyful, & artistic photos that look & feel like you and your story. I aim to capture your memories through the same reverent eyes that I would photograph an old friend. So to start our friendship off on the right foot,
 let me invite you into my world too….


klacik, like classic

I have been a practicing artist for all of my life. Being formally educated in the arts, I approach my job with a refined artistic eye, and allow inspiration to be sourced from my subject's unique story.

Of course, my own story informs what I am drawn to as an artist. My heart is composed of my family (& the beloved Golden Retrievers we grew up with), dear friends, a love of the ocean, fashion, & color, and the places I have called home (including NJ, RI, CO, SC, MA, & Italy!). 

I hope that my photos remind you and your family about what is truly important, & inspire a sense of gratitude for the little things. I hope they will live in family photo albums and will be cherished, time and time again. Thank you for trusting me with such an important job.

Aside from the often unglamorous side of homeownership, we regularly pinch ourselves that we get to live in our coastal neighborhood, and are overwhelmed with pride each summer that we manage to keep our beloved endless summer hydrangeas alive. It’s a dream for a beachcomber like me to spend our days here, and I love that I find a shell or seaglass in every jacket pocket ever since we moved here. (Hint: Keep clicking to see some of our own wedding photos!)

We regularly pinch ourselves that we get to live in our coastal neighborhood, and are overwhelmed with pride each summer that we manage to keep our hydrangeas alive. As a beachcomber, I love how ever since we moved here I find a shell in every jacket pocket. A few of our RI favorites: blood orange margaritas at Perro Salado, Beavertail Lighthouse, Castle Hill Inn, and date nights in Providence. (Keep clicking to see some of our own wedding photos!)

I have always loved working with babies & children, and used to work at a children's hospital in the Newborn Intensive Care Unit as a Child Life Specialist. It was one of my most cherished life experiences. I met amazing people through this phase of my life and wouldn’t trade it for anything! I love any chance I get to work with families (and you know I'm all about those cute flower girl & ring bearer moments, too!). 

2. I HAVE A SPECIAL PLACE IN MY HEART FOR NEWBORN & FAMILY SESSIONS.

Our first wedding was cancelled, and then our plan B city hall elopement got cancelled. We finally got married in September 2021! Being on the other side of the camera gave me a new appreciation for how special these memories are. We loved reliving the funny moments of the dance floor through the photos, and watching my cute flower girls walk down the aisle in the video. You don’t get to see everything that happens on your wedding day, so being able to relive it all through photo & video is priceless.  

3. I WAS A PANDEMIC BRIDE!

I went on to complete my BFA in Studio Art and opened Laura Klacik Photography soon after.
