I'm your girl.

When it comes to all the goings-on of a Catholic wedding,

After a decade of photographing Catholic weddings — and being Catholic myself — I know all the not-to-miss moments.

The elevation of the Holy Eucharist, receiving the Nuptial Blessing; these details of our faith are some of my favourite to capture.

And you can’t exactly get the first time you receive communion as a married couple back.

Because not everyone knows when to sit/stand/kneel 

You need to be focused on what you’re entering into that day.

I’ll take care of your memories — like they're my own! — so you can be present to the graces God has for you.

Your wedding day is first & foremost about the Sacrament of Marriage.

but i promise i won't make it all about the photos

And since you wouldn't want a straight up stranger at your wedding, let's start our friendship right here:

I'm Laura-Anne Smid and my life motto is “keep it simple.” I love watching the neighbourhood dogs, nibbling milk chocolate more than I probably should, and reflecting on life and what God’s up to in mine.

A few of my favourite things include the smell of incense, the sound of the door unlocking when my husband gets home, and all my friends and their snuggly babies.

My husband, Brandon, and I live in Langley, BC, and go to the Traditional Latin Mass at Sts Joachim & Ann Parish. 


I'm celebrating & supporting you as a friend.

as a witness to your vows, i'm more than just a photographer.

Things I Know to Be True

Life's better when you keep it simple. It was the motto for our wedding and has served us well making decisions ever since!

Things I Know to Be True

PIZZA MAKES FOR A GREAT DINNER PARTY.
AND THE FLOOR IS THE BEST PLACE TO SIT AT SAID PARTY.

Things I Know to Be True

I WANT TO OWN A SMALL FARM ONE DAY, COMPLETE WITH LOTS OF BIG DOGS AND HORSES AND A VEGGIE GARDEN AND AND AND...

Things I Know to Be True

I LOVE DOGS. SO MUCH. IT'S GOD'S LOVE LANGUAGE WITH ME TO SEND A GOLDEN RETRIEVER my way WHEN I NEED IT MOST.

Things I Know to Be True

I LOVE BEING CATHOLIC. THE RICHNESS OF THIS FAITH HAS CARRIED ME THROUGH THE BEST AND WORST TIMES OF MY LIFE.

Josh & Rachel

Looking at them now, we still feel that way. It was a gift to have you as
part of our day, reminding us to focus on the now while capturing
moments we wanted to hold forever.

the first time we saw our photos,
it was like reliving the day over again.
