I’m the wild and crazy photographer behind Wandering Creative. So excited to have you here and I promise you, you’re in the right place.

I am based in Memphis, TN and love living here, BUT... I travel anywhere and everywhere. I am very much a non-traditional person (not just in photography), and I'm SO excited to capture you running out of the courthouse, throwing a huge party, or having an intimate wedding with your family and closest friends. Your photos should reflect YOU, as you are, who you are. As an inherently candid photographer, the real life moments are my bread and butter. I'll capture every breath, every blink, every belly laugh, and every ugly cry. I’m that wing-woman that can capture you in real-time and save the memory forever.  

I also have a soft spot for the drama. I love the art of photography and the visual medium.  Humans are so beautiful. So, if you’re looking to recreate any of your favorite photos or you have a particular setup in mind, I’m your go-to girl.  I’ve got your back.  Can't wait to hear from you :)

Hey! I'm Laramie

Memphis Photographer + Travel Enthusiast

Let's do something wild :)

Laramie was our wedding photographer for our Chicago wedding last summer along with her husband Dylan as her second-photographer, and the whole process was a dream! Where do I even begin?!
The planning process was smooth and stress-free. Laramie helped us organize family photo groups, portrait location spots, and recommended a schedule that made the entire day run like a well-oiled machine. She couldn't have made the process easier!
When the wedding day came, Laramie was the BEST to work with. She kept to her timeline, and organized our very large wedding party and family without a hitch. We loved how the photos felt organic, too. She really made sure we felt comfortable and the photos represented us as a couple. Best of all, we had so much fun! My husband hates taking pictures, and five minutes into the process he smiled at me and said, "Wow, this is the best experience. Laramie and Dylan are the best!" I could repeat the day over and over again and wouldn't change a single second or photo that was taken.
Now, onto the wedding photos... we were completely speechless when we received the sneak peaks, and then the full album came along. There are no words to describe how beautiful the images were. They were absolutely breathtaking. We receive compliments constantly on how good they turned out. Laramie and Dylan could not have captured the day more perfectly. We are forever grateful to have these memories for the rest of our lives!

Laramie is absolutely amazing! She graciously took us on as clients last minute after our original photographer canceled. From the very start she was our ally and so helpful during the process. We loved being able to spend the day with her and will treasure the photos forever. Cannot over recommend!!!!

Laramie is such a beautiful and kind spirit who captures the most gorgeous images. I couldn’t be more grateful that we snagged her for our wedding photography and videography. She and her husband, who tag-teamed the photo and video, were so lovely to work with and helped make our day be about us. They kept us on schedule, gave us breaks, and made us laugh, all while creating magic with their cameras. Truly an amazing experience!

Besides the actual getting married part, working with Laramie and Dylan at Wandering Creative was the highlight of our wedding day. My husband and I are not naturals when it comes to getting photos taken, but you'd never know it from the photos that Laramie took. If you're looking for a documentary style with gorgeous light, and if you want those sweet, secret moments captured with you and all your loved ones, you can't pick a better team. On top of Laramie's technical skill, she's also an absolute delight to work with. Great communicator, great advocate for me, and helped wrangle family and bridal party with grace. I couldn't be happier with our experience.

Laramie photographed our wedding this past July, and we can't say enough good things! We absolutely LOVE our photos! Neither of us are super comfortable in front of a camera, but Laramie made it so fun, easy, and made us look natural and not awkward! She captured the essence of all of the moments- the joy, the love, and all of the excitement of our wedding day! We love that she captured so many pictures of us in the moment and not just posed pictures. Her photography and editing is so artistic and beautiful. Before our big day, Laramie talked us through everything and met with us a couple times to make sure everything would go smoothly and answered all of our questions. We recommend A Wandering Creative to anyone looking for gorgeous, artistic, beautiful photos!!

Best experience ever! Laramie was so fun and professional, she made my husband and I feel comfortable and the shoot turned out amazing! She was so flexible with our dates and details of the shoot, super easy to work with and just a dream come true! In love with our photos and the memories we made!

You absolutely fucking nailed it and maybe I’m just going to wallpaper my house with these pictures. You were so easy to work with and rolled perfectly with our ideas. The first thing my mom said when she saw these was “wow she really captured exactly who you two are” and we both feel the same way.

Laramie was the perfect photographer—and she even went above and beyond photography! She was so kind and generous to us from our first communication, and the photos she took were stunning. When our florist fell through, she even jumped in and did our flowers too! Our wedding wouldn't have been the same without Laramie. We're so happy to have found her, and we can't recommend her enough!

Laramie is a phenomenal photographer! She made the whole process easy from start to finish. Excellent communicator, extremely professional, if I could give her 10 stars, I would. Not only did she produce gorgeous photos for my wedding, but she is also a very sweet person and made our photo session a blast. While she photographed our ceremony, she was so quiet that I forgot she was there, and I didn't feel nervous at all. For your next event, hire her. I couldn't have asked for a better photographer or wedding album.

You were such a dream to us yesterday. Safe, steady, directed and fun to have there. It felt so natural and right to have you there. I’m annoyed for you that you took so many great shots you’ll have to cull and edit now but I’m so dang happy, because these have been elevated to such a level of magic. No one else could have made my heart explode quite this way. Thank you so much for giving so much of yourselves to us yesterday. What a gift.
