About Kinser Studios

About Kinser Studios

My name is Laura Kinser and I am the owner and lead photographer at Kinser Studios. I’ve been a professional photographer for over 10 years and have been able to work with incredible clients across the United States. The corporations that my team and I have photographed work hard and play hard and have relied on us to convey their corporate culture through our pictures. They have repeatedly invited us into their world… and we’ve had the BEST time being there.

Over the past decade, we’ve seen the good, the bad and the ugly of corporate photography; many event photographers specialize in social shooting (weddings, family portraits, etc.) and their work just doesn’t translate to a corporate setting. We at Kinser Studios have specialized in corporate photography (conferences, events, professional headshots) which allows us to focus on putting your business in the right light and your best foot forward. Our fast-paced and reliable photographers know how to get the right shots at the events that you’ve worked so hard to orchestrate. Make no mistake, the right training and experience will make all the difference.

What Our Clients Are Saying

  • Laura is amazing. She did head shots and took photos at a party that we hosted and I could not be happier. The head shots turned out amazing and the party photos were perfect. She really captured the fun and the excitement.

  • We recently worked with Laura for my organization's Annual Conference. She was fantastic to work with. Laura made my onsite work easier than it's ever been. She was friendly, professional and captured phenomenal photos. I am beyond impressed by the work that she did and the way that she did it. Thanks Laura!

  • We hired Laura to photograph Blakemore Real Estate's biggest client appreciation event of the year and she was absolutely incredible! She interacted excellently with our guests making them feel comfortable and confident. She captured countless candid moments that are special to both us and our clients who attended. She also photographed joyous posed moments between guests and our team. We confidently and without hesitation recommend her!

    C. Blakemore
  • Laura does a fantastic job. We had her take some head shots at her studio. She made it quick and painless 🙂 Afterwards she was more than happy and accommodating at doing some additional editing of the photos for particular project we were working on. We also had her come and take pictures at a client appreciation event. She did an excellent job at interacting with everybody and taking some great photos to capture the event.

    S. Gubler
  • I hate having my photo taken. Laura put me at ease and made me look better than I should. She’s an amazing photographer with great taste.

    J. Baron
  • Laura was very professional. She does it right, and knows what she's doing. You won't be disappointed.

    J. Lundgren
  • I needed to get an updated headshot for a new job and was referred to Laura. She was very helpful and made the process fun. In fact, I never felt comfortable enough to smile with my teeth showing until Laura gave me the confidence to truly smile. She is an expert behind the lens and will work wonders with the lighting to make sure you have the best picture for a first impression. A couple weeks after our photoshoot, I had a person call because my picture was something "different" than everyone else listed on the website. Thank you Laura for being so responsive and helpful, it has been great for my business and you were a pleasure to work with.

More about Laura . . .

I graduated from the Hallmark Institute of Photography – a dream school for aspiring photographer’s, it was a fantastic training ground for my career. I started my professional life in Las Vegas, NV specializing in corporate events and portraits and I’ve been hooked ever since. Las Vegas was an amazing venue for event photography and gave me the experience that I needed to be able to photograph conferences and corporate events all around the globe.

After meeting my husband, we moved to Denver and continued my work there for 6 years and I was able to work with great entrepreneurs, nonprofits, companies and corporations, photographing their events and executive teams. In 2018 we decided to be closer to family and found our permanent home in Salt Lake City, UT. I continue to travel and shoot conferences regularly in Denver and Las Vegas as well as at home in Salt Lake.

We are a fun family that loves great food, home brewed beer and snowboarding. Fun fact, we gave our kids awesome middle names. We have Owen Danger and Robin Rogue.

Feel free to ask me about my family and team, I love getting to know new people!


The Team

I’ve developed an incredible team of support staff and associate photographers that I’ve been able to train to deliver the same great service that my clients expect. They are reliable and personable and produce incredible results, every time.
