Photographer Laura Reeve was born and raised in Anchorage, a lifelong Alaskan, she studied Art at the University of Alaska Anchorage. Originally a painter, she discovered photography after playing with her parents film cameras and exploring the similarities and differences between creating art with a brush and a camera. Laura loves witnessing the fleeting moments of her client’s lives and documenting them. A mother of two, she is great with children and has more patience than anyone we know 🙂 She has no problem being a little goofy or embarrassing herself to help make her subjects relax and be themselves. She doesn’t take herself seriously, and it’s a rare day that you will find Laura without a smile on her face. When she’s not photographing weddings, she enjoys playing hockey, exploring the mountains with her husband and children, and spending time at the family cabin along the Kenai River in Cooper Landing. A fun note about Laura – we have known Laura for quite a few years! Chugach Peaks photographed her wedding in 2010.
