_MG_2612B-blog

In order for you to make the very most of your upcoming event, whether it be big budget or a modest one, your bottom line is that you want your event be super stunning and something no one will soon forget.  With all of my clients, Laura Barnard Photography likes to pour over the details: what to wear, where to get some really great outfits and accessories, as well as talk about any other needs you may have at the time, including gifts for the upcoming graduate and party planning. So, I have developed this important list – to help everyone get some serious support, help you get organized and introduce you to lots of fun and first class businesses & their people to work with.
