About - Laurie Johnson Photography

People and Event Photography in the

Asheville, NC  Area and Beyond!

Hi, I’m Laurie and photography is my life’s passion! I discovered photography at the early age of eight years old when my parents sent me to gymnastics sleepaway camp. Sadly, I was terrible at gymnastics, but as luck would have it, the program was on a college campus where I was able to go AWOL and join the college students in their photography class. They thought I was cute so they set me up with a camera and taught me how to develop film and make prints. I was hooked! In fifth grade, at the age of ten, I was part of the Kodak Young Photographers League and at fourteen, my dad finally built me my very own darkroom. While most kids were partying and doing other unmentionable things, I was holed up in my darkroom until the wee hours, every Friday and Saturday night through high school. From there, I attended New York University and received my Bachelor of Fine Arts in Photography. I was off and running!

I love people and soon discovered that people photography was what I wanted to focus my skills on. I excel at children and family portraits, corporate headshots, acting head shots, weddings, Bar & Bat Mitzvahs and just about any event that you can think of. Well, mostly any event...I do have to draw the line somewhere. ;-)

About Bar Mitzvah & Bat Mitzvah Photography: My family and I are Jewish and are members of Congregation Beth HaTephila in Asheville. We have also spent a lot of time at Congregation Beth Israel and Chabad House of Asheville. We are so lucky to have such a warm and loving Jewish community in Asheville!

My son became a Bar Mitzvah in August of 2013 and my daughter's Bat Mitzvah was in June of 2017. Also, because I dropped out of Hebrew school when I was 10, I did an adult Bat Mitzvah in February of 2015. I know my stuff! I have photographed dozens of B'nai Mitvot and would love to help you come up with a plan to have beautiful photos to commemorate this important milestone.

LGBT Weddings: Yes! It would be an honor to photograph your special occasion!
