Fire and Gold Photography

Husband and wife team Laura and Matthew Schaefer are grounded in their Catholic faith and encouraged through new relationships. Laura reflects, “I see [photography and running my business] as participation in God’s own creation of beauty. He is Beauty itself and I honestly see my work as a form of prayer.” They capture the beauty of the vocation of marriage throughout the engagement season, beginning with a complimentary engagement photography session and prayerfully through the wedding day. “We form friendships with our couples… it allows us to be open with them about our faith and allows us to pray for and with them.” The photographs—and the various ways Laura and Matthew cultivate authentic love—are timeless, joyful, and genuine. Fire and Gold Photography is local to Ohio, Pennsylvania, West Virginia, and Western New York, but “will happily travel all over the country and world.”
