Hey! I’m Lara (say it like Sarah). I’m a Detroit native, but have been soaking up the gorgeous South Florida sunshine since 2014.
I’m an old soul: a lot of my friends joke that I’m 30 going on 90. I love old movies, crossword puzzles, practicing piano, studying European history, sappy love stories, Peruvian food, animals, and Harry Potter.
My dad was a photographer so I picked up photography pretty quickly from a young age. I always enjoyed capturing people the most, even as a kid. Being around happy people celebrating happy times is one of the most rewarding ways to spend time — I am truly grateful every day that I get to professionally do the thing that I am most passionate about!

Helping out at a wedding 🙂
Pre-Party time, at a wedding 🙂
I love traveling the world with my favorite travel buddy, my husband. We got married a few years back in 2017, and going through that process of being a bride myself gave me a fresh perspective on the art of documenting a wedding day. I firmly believe that photography should be an adventure, and not a stuffy photoshoot. If I have the honor of photographing your wedding, know that I pour my heart and my soul into the weddings that I get to document. These are precious moments and I love that I get to be the one to tell those stories.
I can’t wait to chat with you and get to know your story — please head here to get in touch.
"Lara is an absolute gem! She is not only an amazing photographer, but an outstanding person as well! She worked with me months in advance to make sure all the planning for my proposal was how I envisioned it. People still rave about how amazing our photographer was and I could not have been more pleased. When you choose Lara, you are getting so much more than a photographer; you are getting someone who will dedicate herself to capturing that perfect memory that you have envisioned your entire life!"
"Lara photographed our wedding in March and there aren't enough words for how amazing she was throughout the entire process. From finding her website, to first contacting her, to planning, to the big day, and receiving our beautiful pictures, she was amazing throughout the whole thing. She made us feel comfortable and was very patient with us. The morning of the wedding I was feeling some anxiety and she even came and talked to me and helped calm me down. She is super easy to talk to, and she responds quickly. She planned out a timeline for the day and we stayed on schedule the whole time! Fast forward to now, we have received our pictures and they are so so beautiful. Every time I look through them I relive that day and it makes me so happy. She is professional, yet laid-back and just so amazing. She captured every single moment, and she got so many amazing candid shots. I can't say enough about her!"
"Lara is beyond amazing. From the very first meeting until the day we were married, she was always on point. She's one of those people that make you feel like you've known them your entire life because of how sweet and caring they are. She is a remarkable photographer, very creative and produces great work. But, even more, she really is a great person. I had so many people at our wedding compliment how great she was - from making sure every moment was captured to making sure everything we wanted happened."
"Lara is the ONE. She is super sweet, caring, and makes you feel sooo comfortable. Her pictures are beautiful; I had no stress at all leaving everything to her creative eyes for our wedding pictures. And I'm so happy we found you Lara. Thank you for making our special day so amazing."
"We had no idea that we would find such an amazing and wonderful photographer. There are not enough good things to say about Lara. From our first meeting where we talked about what we wanted to the wedding itself and then the product...everything she did was excellent. We now have a keepsake that reflects exactly our wedding and the beautiful ceremony we had. I cannot say enough good things about Lara...you will be lucky to have her as part of your wedding!!"

"Lara was absolutely phenomenal photographing our wedding...She didn’t miss a beat -- from getting kids, elderly and tipsy family together and in order with perfectly planned timing ...to busting a move on the dance floor with all of us crazies to get the best shots. She was discreet in her presence but was right there when we wanted to pose for a shot. So thank you, Lara, for the dancing, the laughs and now my favorite photo of me and my wife."
