Our Reviews

"Not only did we love the final product of our wedding photos, but we loved the experience of working with Dan & Laura." - Ashleigh

"We had the most AMAZING experience with Dan and Laura!" - Molly

"The absolutely stunning pictures we received from The Pinckards blew our wildest expectations out of the water." - Sarah


Before my husband and I were even engaged, I reached out to Dan and Laura. I knew I needed them as our photographers when the day came! From our breathtaking engagement photos, to our one-of-a-kind wedding, and most recently the announcement of our first baby, Laura and Dan have 100% completely exceeded our expectations of anything we could have ever imagined. They are creative, patient, kind and so incredibly talented. We have certainly found our photographers for life and would absolutely recommend them (and already have) to anyone who is in need of photographers. Thank you Dan and Laura, for making our dreams come true, and sealed forever in our beautiful photos.

stress-free planning

  • Crafting a photo timeline for your wedding day

    We'll help craft a timeline for your wedding photography that fits seamlessly into the flow of your day, focuses on the things that are most important to you, and accounts for details you may not think of.

  • Identifying the photos that are most important to you

    We'll work with you to identify and list all of the photos - group shots, creative portraits, special details, etc. - that are a priority for you. This will help us to focus on the specific pictures that are must-have's for your wedding!

  • Timely, thorough, and consistent communication

    We want you to feel like you're the only wedding on our calendar, no matter how busy we are. We will have check-ins scheduled for specific times leading up to your wedding day (e.g. 3 months away, 1 month away), but we're also available ANY time if you have questions for us.


Every wedding package that we offer includes both of us (Laura & Dan) as photographers, so you get a 2nd photographer no matter what. We never do weddings solo, because we want to to capture every special moment perfectly.

From your mother zipping up your wedding dress, to the group photos with your loved ones, to the candid moments during your ceremony… Your gallery will be full of pictures of precious memories from your wedding day.

PHotography expertise

Years Of Experience

We can't overstate how important it is to make sure your wedding photographer has ample experience, not just in photography, but also in weddings. Knowing where to be standing for the perfect shot, how to quickly handle problems like a memory card failure, and what settings to use in various lighting scenarios... you only have one shot to get the shot, so being experienced is crucial.

Efficient + Secure Workflow

If you Google "my wedding photographer lost my pictures," there are over 96 million results. We have personally heard a few insane horror stories about photographers accidentally losing or erasing memory cards.
We have a strict workflow for every wedding, which includes making three separate back-ups of every single photo, to make sure that NEVER happens to your memories.

Professionalism / Confidence

When challenging situations arise (e.g. a), whether your photographer handles it professionally can make or break your wedding day. Our #1 goal at every wedding is to make sure the couple is having the best day of their life, so we approach every challenging situation with that in mind.

Not-boring photos

perhaps most importantly, your wedding photos won't be boring

You deserve to have wedding photos that you’ll love. Photos that you’ll show off to your friends and family. Photos that you’ll hang up in your home for the next 30+ years.

We refuse to deliver the same, boring pictures that wedding photographers have taken for decades. Our commitment to you is that we will never stop pushing the creative boundaries & coming up with new ideas, so that you will have unique wedding photos that you’re proud of.

What our clients say about us


"Dan and Laura were the easiest decision I made when it came to planning my wedding. The quality of their photos are incredible and I will cherish my wedding photos for a lifetime. When my wedding ceremony site cancelled due to covid restrictions, Dan and Laura helped us pick the perfect place. They really listened to what I wanted. I could not be happier and hope to use their services again in the future!"

"Laura and Dan are absolutely fabulous! They are extremely talented, kind, responsive, and overall amazing people. I could not imagine any other photographers capturing my wedding but them. Our sneak peak photos look like they came straight from a wedding magazine. I really do not have enough words to explain how much we love them!! If you have the opportunity to work with Dan and Laura, DO IT! You will thank yourself later!"

"There are no words to begin to describe how phenomenal our experience with the Pinckards was. We wanted to do scenic portraits with our dog and have intimate time together but also wanted to have a ceremony and reception with our close friends and family. Dan, Laura and Rachel helped to make this become a reality. They were so communicative and AMAZING to work with.

The Friday before our wedding, Dan and Laura went adventuring with us to get epic portrait shots. They spent a significant amount of time researching places we could go and even back up places. There ended up being a giant snow storm during our Friday photos so only one of the original places worked out. Laura and Dan were quick to come up with additional locations. They made us feel incredibly comfortable while we were taking the photos. They worked with us in negative degree temperature, during a snow storm without hesitation! Not only that, but when our car got stuck in the snow, they helped to push it out!

On Saturday we had our ceremony and reception with 80 people at Saranac Waterfront Lodge. Laura and Dan captured every moment so perfectly and got amazing shots of everyone on the dance floor having a blast.

I truly cannot recommend The Pinckards enough. They helped make everything flow and run seamlessly. They made us and our dog feel so comfortable and they captured everything in the most stunning photos! They helped to give us the best of both worlds."

"Laura and Dan went above and beyond our expectations. We couldn’t have asked for a better wedding photographer. Our photos came out beautiful! They are so personable and each session with The Pinckards is fun and stress-free! We are so happy they have captured the most important moments of our lives!"

"The Pinkards did our engagement shoot & small intimate wedding and they made both experiences feel light & intimate!!! We will continue to use them for our upcoming maternity shoot and all of our future milestones! We are always amazed with all of Dan & Laura’s work!!"

"My husband and I were on a budget for our small, intimate wedding in Lake Placid, but photography was a piece that was truly important to me. I browsed photographers local to that area for what felt like weeks when I came across Laura and Dan. I immediately fell in love with the style and tone of their photography. Our wedding day went seamlessly. Laura and Dan were so receptive to everything we wanted photographed, even venturing to the Herb Brooks Arena before the beginning of our reception. They both captured such beautiful moments that I didn't even realize they were around for. They were very kind and made us feel so comfortable. I was extremely excited for our GIF video and it was above and beyond any expectations I had. My husband and I are both so happy and have pictures from our wedding day hung up all around our house."

"Dan and Laura were hands down the easiest and BEST decision while planning our wedding. They are both a dream to work with, and are all around wonderful (also the definition of goals!).

Originally when hired, they were doing just our first look + portraits, however when our ceremony photographer (supplied by the venue) backed out just weeks before, they didn’t hesitate to step in, making it a literal dream come true. We can’t begin to express how great our experience was with Laura and Dan. They are both very personable, professional, kind, and truly care about your vision, while not being afraid to step in as an advocate so others don’t dampen your day. Laura was truly a blessing when the venue staff became a bit overwhelming, and I am forever grateful!

The quality and style of their photos is beyond incredible, and they make it such an enjoyable time. When our venue had us postpone due to Covid restrictions, Dan and Laura didn’t jump ship, and instead helped us to replan even during the current pandemic. They really listened and cared, and we could not be happier with the end results!

We hope to use their services again in the future! And will always ALWAYS recommend them for any of your photography needs!!"
