All About Werth Photography


Laurie has been an artist from a very young age. Running around Philadelphia with a sketchbook, her love of drawing and painting evolved throughout highschool and until she was accepted into a summer art residency at the Pennsylvania Governor’s School for the Arts in Erie, PA.

Matt, who grew up just outside of Pittsburgh, was totally distracted with ice hockey for most of his childhood. In highschool he started taking pictures on an old 35mm film camera and just so happened to be accepted into the Governor’s School the same year.

On the first night of the residency there was an art show and Laurie’s drawing was hung directly next to Matt’s photograph. As they stood near their pieces they started chatting. After a few minutes of Matt’s awkwardness, Laurie laughing at Matt’s awkwardness, some talk of art, and a shared love of excellent tacos - that was that!

Werth Photography was established a few years later by two excitable creative, taco-eating newlyweds. They have been collaborating and creating together ever since.

Laurie is a classically trained painter and uses her understanding of light and composition to create dynamic, beautiful images of your important wedding items. She is very interested in photojournalism, and uses these principals to capture truly candid, intimate moments during the wedding day. She also works directly with all of our couples to help plan the wedding day for the best possible photography.
