Laura Gilligan

Hey I'm Laura. I’m a 23-year-old content creator and photographer based in Chicago, Illinois. I specialize in weddings, portraits, lifestyle, and product photography. I enjoy documenting memories that mean so much to my clients. When I’m not shooting weddings and portraits, I work at Idea Booth, a digital advertising agency that specializes in building brands. Contact me if you’re interested in working together. I look forward to hearing from you.
