Beautiful Day

The Essence… Artistically

Photojournalist/owner Laura Grier specializes in capturing the essence of your wedding artistically and with an editorial flair.  Living abroad and traveling extensively through her work has influenced her technique to always take the perfect shot in spontaneous situations.

Laura holds dual degrees from Syracuse University in photojournalism and art photography, blending the two genres and creating a unique, conceptual style, Laura creates powerful images in a wide array of disciplines, including wedding, commercial, music, celebrity and fashion photography.

Laura and her team understand the importance of building a relationship with each couple they shoot, because it is not just for one day, but an experience to go through together.  No event is too intimate or extravagant for BDP to cover.  We ensure that our images will be as intimate and personal as the moments they reveal.
