S&L Photography


Hey there! I’m Laurie- creator and photographer behind S&L Photography. I’m a 27 year old family and wedding photographer, wife to my high school sweetheart, mother to an adorable red headed three year old boy, and fur mama to my 12 year old husky/malamute mix named Dodger and 8 year old tabby cat named Oliver- just doing life in Salisbury, MD. I’m East Coast born and raised, but having spent 6 years in Lawrence, KS (go Jayhawks!), part of my heart will always belong to the Midwest. I bought my first canon dslr in 2012 and haven’t looked back!

I consider myself an intimate, lifestyle photographer and specialize in children and families, though I also take on a limited number of weddings each year. Light, sun filled, colorful images are my favorite. My camera bag stays pretty simple- a couple of prime lenses are all I need for most sessions. My goal as a photographer is to create a fun and relaxing environment so I can document families just playing and being themselves. My favorite images are always full of emotion, detail, and movement- the way your daughter twirls in her dress, the way you brush her hair back to kiss her forehead, the excitement in your son’s face when he shows you a new rock or stick he found, and the way you smile and hang on every word he says. Capturing intimate, genuine moments between couples and families is what I live for! I do not shy away from harsh light and shadows. I want to beautifully document the moment for what it is; I fully believe that as a photographer my job is first and foremost to be a story teller. If you are looking for standard posing, or studio sessions with lots of props, I’m not your girl- and I’m ok with that!

I am naturally detail oriented and hold myself to high standards in all that I do. Every part of my photography process, from choosing equipment, location scouting and session styling, helping clients plan outfits and session timing, to editing and product packaging/presentation, is thoughtfully done with attention to detail and quality. I pride myself on my quick turnaround time for both online galleries and product delivery. I want my clients to have the best, because you deserve it!

If you are interested in having me document your family or wedding, please shoot me an email at laurie@slphotographs.com or use the contact form linked at the top of the page. I can’t wait to meet you and create beautiful images together!

  • Finally seeing the light at the end of editing tunnel!!!🙌🏼 If you’ve been waiting on your gallery, it’s coming this week!!
  • Just a little PSA that even photographers can be awkward in front of the camera💁🏼‍♀️ (Swipe for a little Instagram vs reality!) If you’re scrolling through Instagram wondering how there’s so many perfect families and couples out there, I promise you that for every perfect photo, there’s at least 5 of these!
  • We had such a beautiful evening yesterday at Assateague! It’s always such an honor to photograph another photographer and their family. @lindsay.haynes
  • After a busy weekend of working, nothing beats a slow evening with my family❤️ Shout out to my husband for getting a rare shot of me with BOTH of my babies. •

  • Oh hey! It’s been a little while! Anyone else let social media be the first thing to go when you get super busy?? It’s true what they say about October being for photographers what April is for accountants. It’s been a beautiful month full of weddings, family beach sessions, small business shoots, and of course all the fall activities with my family. I’m not quite ready for it to end!
  • This bouquet😍
  • Yesterday was such a beautiful day for a fall wedding. Congratulations Cyle and Lauren! Your day was perfect❤️
  • Happy Friday! It’s finally feeling like fall around here and I’m surprisingly pretty happy about it! I think we’ll have to make a trip to the pumpkin patch this weekend. Anyone else have some fun fall activities planned for the weekend??
  • Photographing families laughing and being silly together has got to be the best job ever❤️ Here’s a peek at the Medford family from earlier this week!
  • I’m a few days late posting this, but I couldn’t let this week go by without wishing this amazing couple a happy Anniversary! I’ve had the privilege of knowing Amanda since high school and you will never meet a more kind, down to earth person, and Joe is just perfect for her! I’m so happy and honored to have been able to document their beautiful wedding day.❤️
