Monica and Drew - May 26th, 2007

Sorry about not posting more/sooner - we've had non-stop shoots over the last few weeks, and this is the first chance we've had to come up for air! We are so lucky to have such great couples and opportunities, so trust me, we are NOT complaining about being busy! We love this!

I've back dated this post a bit so it keeps the events in sequence.

Monica and Drew had an excellent day! The weather was just perfect for a center city wedding. Philadelphia had some Memorial day weekend traffic but this didn't slow anyone down at all. We went from the Doubletree Hotel, to the Art Museum, to the church, and then back to the Doubletree.

Monica and Drew had an awesome large family, everyone was extremely friendly and one of them was even a fellow photographer. Was great meeting you Peter, keep in touch!

Here's a few shots from the day.

It's OFFICIAL! Laura Eaton KIDS is here!

Lets clear something up first.... Our last post about our "big & exciting news" left a few of our friends and family wondering if we had a little bun-in-the-oven...... Sorry to disappoint, but we aren't HAVING kids yet - we are just taking pictures of them! :)

We are happy to announce that Laura Eaton Photography is now offering Kids & Family Portraiture!

We are now reserving dates for Environmental Portraiture - this means we'll shoot in the comfort of your home, or at a local park - no stuffy studio rules, or cheesy backdrops! Just great natural light and a natural setting so your kids can be kids!

Please check out the site at: and click on the last button to enter the kids site!

Let us know what you think!

The couple in Venice - Tatiana & Julien!!!

This story does have a happy ending!!!

I couldn't believe my eyes when I opened my email this morning! There it was - a message from the couple that got engaged in Venice!

They are french and they got engaged on their last day in Venice...

Here is a little bit of what Tatiana wrote:
"We wanted to visit Venice for a long time, and we decided this year... We stayed 4 days. Then before leaving, we made the touristic turn of gondole! After, we went on St Marks Place. And in full medium, we kissed each other. Julien put himself on his knees..... It was so romantic, I cried about it...

We didn't notice that people could look at us. When you came to see us, it's true we had not understood well. We thought that you want us to take a photo of you.

Then we realized that you have assisted at this moment. We sincerly thank you to approach us and leave us your card. The 2 pictures on your site remind us a really splendid and magic moment."

I've just sent the two from the site - and I will be sending more soon!

To Tatiana & Julien - thank you sooo much for getting in touch! It means so much to us to be able to share these images with you! We are just so happy that we could document this truly amazing moment!!!

Thank you!
Laura & Paul

To the couple who got engaged in VENICE - San Marco (St. Mark's Square) May 3, 2007!!!

If you are this couple - please email us at -or-

We want to give you these images!! FREE, no charge!! (And we have a few more!).

Ok, now to explain...

While we were in Venice (for three short days!), we visited St. Mark's Square (San Marco to the locals) and happened upon this adorable couple who I noticed were getting engaged. I of course couldn't help but take a few shots to capture the moment. After waiting what I hoped was an appropriate amount of time, I gingerly approached them to give them my card and explain that I wanted to give them the images (for free of course!). There was a little bit of a language barrier (the barrier being that I speak nothing but english, and I'm not sure I do that very well!) - so I'm not sure they completely understood me...

Hardly anyone has this moment captured, so I really want to make sure that they have these images - it was so beautiful and moving, I couldn't help but snap a few shots.... I really hope they didn't mind... :)

So if you are this couple, or if you know them - PLEASE EMAIL ME!!!!
