I'm not a PHP dev by day but I often reach for it for many side projects and contract jobs. When I do, I really appreciate an opinionated framework like Laravel. The amount of time I save is extremely helpful. I don't want to have to think of things like routing or whatever. I would likely spend time writing some of the same solutions Laravel has already put together for me. I can really focus on solving client issues, which is probably not routing. I've also found that with a little digging, I've not had any issues customizing when needed.
