I worked with Anna Laura at the Shine Studio Co. to snag some new photos for the launch of (my) website. She was a better hype woman than I could have ever asked for. She made me feel like a legitimate supermodel. I had the best time ever, no understatements. Working with Anna Laura made the entire shoot SUCH a special, memorable experience. She curated a perfectly on-brand list of locations and her creative intuitive on-the-go is impeccable. I'm so in love with the final photos! Overall, it was an invaluable experience. I'd work with Anna Laura a hundred times over again. ...Go hire her like, yesterday.

Anna Laura Sommer partners with my business, Francesca Ragucci Marketing to document and tell the story of each business opportunity. She is reliable and adaptive in many situations. She turns my requests into purely joyful experiences through Photography and Videography. When I found Anna, I was seeking Photography for my speaking engagements and business opportunities. When she told me she videos events too this made our partnership even stronger. Thank you, Anna Laura Sommer, for being kind and caring about my business message and fully representing my character in each photo and video.

Anna Laura is a woman who inspires you to be the best version of yourself just by being in her presence. She pours her heart and soul into her work and passions. She truly has a gift for serving others. The best word I can think of to describe Anna Laura is "authentic". Incredible experience from start to finish. I cannot recommend her enough!

Working with Anna Laura was a dream. She immediately puts you at ease and makes you comfortable, and she checks in regularly to make sure you're happy with the direction of the shoot and how you're feeling. The photos are exactly what I asked for and what we talked about before the session. I can't wait to work with her again!

Anna Laura is amazing and was such a joy for my daughter and I to work with! She made us feel completely comfortable and helped guide us through shots (which we needed) and was not afraid to do what it took to get the perfect shot! :) Thanks Anna Laura for making this a great experience! Will be using her again very soon!

Anna Laura is amazing! She makes you feel super comfortable and guides you throughout your shoot. She has fresh ideas and took the most perfect pictures for my event and website! I didn’t even let a full week pass before booking my next shoot with her. You’ll have a great time and leave with model shots! And a few new profile pic options!

Anna Laura is a breath of southern fresh air! She instantly made me feel comfortable and confident during my session and it definitely shows in the finished product. My vision for the session was fun, light and airy which is exactly what I received along with some great laughs!

Anna Laura was a great photographer. She was professional, very nice and talented. What she does (with branding photography) isn’t common. I for sure recommend her to anybody trying to create content for their business.
