Natural &Candid

Modern portrait photography for couples, families, and seniors.

Hello there.

We’re Joren & Laura. We’re married. Laura is wacky. Joren is serious less wacky. We enjoy a good charcuterie board. Our dream is to live in a tiny house and go kayaking every day.

We got our start in photography by taking photos of our trips around the world. We wanted to capture our best memories, but they weren’t photos that we would hang up on the wall. We wanted something better. So we bought better cameras and learned manual mode. Then we learned how to edit. We learned composition and lighting and all the things that go into taking a really good photo.

We realized we wanted to use our photography to capture great memories for other people. Stuff you want to hang on the wall. Or send in a card. Or put on your fridge. Natural photos. People laughing, joking - having fun with their loved ones.

We’d love the opportunity to get to know you. To see if we jive. And if that feels good, let’s get you on the calendar.

We got some great pictures! Very thankful!


The Byers were extremely helpful throughout the entire process, were timely with communication and delivered fantastic pictures of our family. The pictures will be cherished for many years to come!

Laura and Joren were so wonderful to work with. Photos were amazing! Highly recommend!


[Laura and Joren] helped guide us through the session and made it super fun! We received our pictures back quickly and they were great! I don’t consider myself a very photogenic person but they were able to capture great moments that we shared with our family and friends who absolutely loved them!


Laura and Joren took my son’s senior pictures and they were so great to work with! They worked well with my son and accommodated all of his ideas in a great and creative way. I look forward to using them again for my younger son!


Laura and Joren took beautiful pictures for us on the day we got engaged. They were able to make us extremely comfortable when they set up poses even though we aren't necessarily super comfortable in front of the camera. They are very well prepared and professional. The final edited photos turned out great!


Laura and team are wonderful to work with and I absolutely loved their work! They are creative, give attention to details and I appreciated their willingness to do the photo shoot at our backyard. My kids had so much fun!
