My interest in photography started as a childhood passion, developed through photographing events at Bristol University, and then organically grew into a full time career.
Beyond the fast pace of events and weddings, I love to work more personally with families, children and individuals through portraiture. Though a different challenge, the focus is the same: to combine technical precision with intuition and to put the subject at ease by becoming part of the moment myself.
I’m driven by my desire to be an authentic storyteller, so I work with a natural style, aiming to reflect emotion, personalities and to capture the true spirit of the occasion. Photography is a skill that involves not just sensitivity, discretion and creativity while shooting, but also huge dedication in the post-production process – and I work hard to ensure my photos are frame worthy and able to transcend time for generations to come!
Regardless of the commission, working with people is where I’m happiest. I feel grateful that my career allows me to meet so many interesting and beautiful characters in all walks of life, and that the camera has opened up so many new worlds, allowing me to see life in all its complexity.
When not with my camera, I love to travel, am a dedicated yogi and pursue an avid interest in the environment.

“People love Lara, and her camera loves them. She’s efficient, prompt and has a wedding smile/editing suite.”
I’m so excited to have partnered with Tree Sisters - an amazing global women’s movement that has collectively funded the planting of over 10 million trees.
The mission of TreeSisters is to accelerate reforestation by making it as normal to give back to Nature as it currently is to take.
I’ll now be donating 3% of all my business to fund the planting of trees, so with each job I do, my clients and I will be helping to grow a forest! The average wedding will plant 150 trees, and the average event will plant 50 trees - so my goal is to plant over 3500 trees by the end of next year!
The dream is that one day ecological restoration will be embedded into every transaction we make, shifting us from a consumer species to a restorer species, with everyone growing their own little forest.
A huge thank you in advance to all my future clients - so pleased we can become part of the solution together!
