WELCOME, I AM LARA!
I have been doing photography for more than fifteen years: I started as an amateur and continued training and gaining experience until I turned my passion into my career. And I feel so lucky for it!
However, five years ago, one of my best friends who is also a photographer asked me to be her wedding photographer. That day, everything made sense: I knew that I wanted to tell love stories with my camera. I am all about people and true love.
Turning your wedding and love moments into memories is an honor and a gift for me. I am so looking forward to knowing your story so we can start creating together.
APPROACH & STYLE
When I photograph weddings I love being a storyteller, not a story maker. The fun, tears, emotion, and craziness are all captured for you to remember in years to come. I will document your day in photographs as it unfolds, putting more emphasis into capturing the moments, emotions and feelings of your day. My main goal as a wedding photographer is to give you an experience that you love so we can create epic images together that you can see in the years to come. I see my job very much as a collaboration between the three of us in which communication and creativity are key.

IF YOU ARE CONSIDERING ME FOR YOUR DAY OR WOULD LIKE TO FIND OUT MORE ABOUT MY WORK, THEN PLEASE GET IN TOUCH AS I WOULD LOVE TO HEAR YOUR PLANS!
My approach to photography is calmed and relaxed. I love photographing people naturally, without forced smiles or poses, from an authentic, candid perspective and simply enjoying the day with you.
I like to blend into the background, capturing all of the details that will make your photos so unique and personal to you. Photography is not just taking photos but a story, a visual narrative that with one look can tell more than words can describe.
Lara is such a talented photographer! So blessed to have been able work with her in Hawaii. Being nervous having not ever done a photoshoot Lara's bubbly personality and kind reassuring nature made us feel at ease from the first shot. My partner James and I were completely blown away with the magnificent photographs. I couldn't wipe the smile off my face when scrolling through the images. Thank you Lara x

Lara is the absolute BEST!!
Absolutely amazing! I am so thrilled with Lara's work for our wedding day. Lara was an amazing choice for our outdoor wedding. She was so much fun and so professional throughout the entire experience. Every moment that she captured takes me back to our wedding day. I can see that she put her heart into capturing the entirety of the day beautifully. Words cannot express how happy we are with our wedding photos! Lara is the best, book her now!
Lara is really great! Coordination with her has been easy and she has a great personality. We had a wedding on the UC Berkeley campus and did an engagement session with her in San Francisco. Her pictures were beautiful and not artificial. She captured many real touching moments and was not intrusive throughout the wedding. I loved working with her and we loved her photos!

The pictures Lara took for my daughter's wedding are wonderful. Her deep sensibility was able to reveal expressions and emotions of my daughter that are hard to see, her happiness for a new life in which she is an adult woman ready to start a family, the beauty and the trust in her eyes for this lifelong project, the sweetness towards the man she chose for the biggest of the adventures. But also the beauty and the depth of Cj's gestures and expressions. Thanks Lara for giving me the chance to live those emotions through your beautiful, delicate and refined pictures.

The short version is, hire her! Don't even think twice, you will be more than satisfied with the results. Lara captured every magical moment with extremely high-quality shots. She was unobtrusive, never in the way or distracting and always in the right place at the right time. She does amazing things with the lighting that is available and has a knack for timing her shots. By the latter half of the day, when we toured the city for post-wedding pictures, we got to know Lara a person a bit better as an individual. She is a really cool person, very friendly and easy to talk to. So the bonus on top of amazing pictures was that her company is top-notch as well.
Lara was exceptional and made our day so special. She is very familiar with city hall and its features and our photos were just incredible. She is very professional and my family and friends loved the photos. Thank you so much Lara!
