Hi there! I’m Laura Sponaugle – that’s me to the left. I’m a wedding and portrait photographer in Houston, specializing in weddings in Texas and destinations all over the world. I’ve photographed events from Oklahoma to Italy. My work on top wedding sites such as Wedding Sparrow and Junebug Weddings illustrates these trips and highlights my love of capturing moments.

Studying photojournalism with a focus on documentary storytelling and studio art photography, my experience at the University of Texas at Austin shaped my style today documenting events where people interact and families come together in real time. I like to keep things simple when it comes to shooting. My approach is all about getting to know you and depicting your true spirit. I see light, shadows, reflections, attitudes, connections, and love. Sometimes, my favorite part of a scene is just a simple shy smile or the way the light passes through a window or a leaf, giving the eyes that sparkle of life.

As for what inspires me: I am a dreamer, a visual artist, and admirer of light. I find adventure wherever I go and love to meet everyone along the way. My family and friends mean everything to me, and, in my free time, you’ll find me hanging out with the fam or finding adventure. Also, I am a huge animal lover!! When I’m not photographing people, I’m photographing wildlife and exploring national parks. Love all creatures big and small. I’ll leave you with a favorite quote from John Muir … “When we try to pick out anything by itself we find that it is bound fast by a thousand invisible cords that cannot be broken, to everything else in the universe.” Personalities and connections fascinate me – and I can’t wait to connect with you.
