Mistakes Make Magic


Oct 23, 2019

Laura Murray is a photographer in Denver, Colorado.  

After graduating with a degree in mathematics and spending several years working in the technology sector, Laura Murray found inspiration in photography.  She never dreamed her career would transition from data cruncher to wedding photographer.  She considers herself unbelievably lucky that she gets to document the happiest of days for her clients.  

Laura is passionate about the pursuit of being the best versions of ourselves. She believes each day we can find little ways to improve which will culminate into big changes.  She loves teaching the business aspect of photography, particularly about the power of goal setting, productivity tricks to get more done in less time, and marketing for the creative entrepreneur.  Her new brand Spark & Bound provides tools to creatives to achieve their wild dreams and extraordinary goals.      

Laura has traveled across the world in pursuit of photography, but she thinks there's nothing quite like home.  Laura resides with her husband and three boys in the Colorado foothills, surrounded by the natural beauty of the wild.

Laura has been named one of the top wedding photographers by Martha Stewart Weddings, and her work has been featured on Style Me Pretty, Brides Magazine, Once Wed, and The Knot, among others.

I love Laura as a person, peer mentor, and friend, and Iā€™m excited for all of you to hear from her.
