Laura Grier is the Indiana Jones of adventure, travel, and destination wedding photography. A self-proclaimed jet-setter at heart, Laura has been a globe-trotter from an early age having grown up internationally with two parents who worked for the CIA. she graduated from Syracuse University with a dual degree in Photojournalism and Art Photography and in 2003 founded Photograph based in Los Angeles and specializing in destination weddings and Beautiful Day Photography, events. Her ability to channel her storytelling into a chic, vibrant perspective, has made her a veteran International Photographer, shooting weddings on 6 of the 7 continents. while on these trips, Laura felt an overwhelming need to tell the stories of the people and experiences she gathered along the way through her lens. This desire sparked the creation of “wanderlust by laura grier”, a personal blog focusing on travel, Portraiture and Fine Art, highlighting the behind-the-scenes of her photography and personal stories while jet-setting around the world. Laura’s photos have been featured in over 25 publications worldwide and she is presently a Tastemaker/blogger/lead photographer for Novica in association with National Geographic, shooting all of their catalog work, training their in-house photographers around the world ad shooting and filming their “happiness” philanthropic projects.

Laura also teaches, mentors, and inspires other photographers through her travel workshops and through telling her expereinces over the past 14 years of being a Professioal Photographer. Last year Laura photographed a project for the Women’s Global Education Project in Senegal, Africa documenting a huge project underway to build schools for girls in a mostly Muslim Country.
