Photographer based in Burford, Cotswolds
Covering Oxfordshire, Gloucestershire, Warwickshire & beyond.
I love getting to know my couple, their friends and family, and getting to spend so many special and emotional moments with them. Each wedding is different and I love this. I do not view photographing weddings as a job, but as a privilege, and I just love every second of being there. I get butterflies before every wedding out of pure excitement of being present at such a beautiful and emotional event.
I like to keep my photographs natural and in keeping with the atmosphere of the day using the relationship I have forged with my clients to keep them relaxed , so they can also enjoy being photographed and creating their memories.
I capture candid shots and find a natural shot of someone laughing- be it an adult or a child really lights up their eyes. Once my clients are relaxed and enjoying their experience it is then that I am able to capture some more formal shots- especially true in Weddings where the typical Bride & Groom shots, along with family shots are required. This is why engagement shoots are invaluable as we can meet each other prior to your special day and get to know each other.
Every wedding is different and I always try to tailor my packages to suit your requirements. Below is a list of what is included...
All full quality, edited digital images. (approx. 300 - 800)

"Lara is an amazing photographer and you will be sorry if you do not book her for your wedding!
Lara did our wedding on the 14th March (one of the last before the crazy lockdown), and the photos are just stunning. Her down to earth manner, easy attitude and all-out caring personality made our engagement shoot and wedding day feel great, and us at ease.
She stayed calm throughout the day and was very helpful (she helped with balloons in the morning!). She kept stating that it is our day and we need to enjoy i"

"Lara was amazing at our recent wedding !! She was so lovely and calming for me even when a family accident meant we had to change up the order of the day a little at the last minute - she took it all in her stride and just got on with it ! All our guests have since commented how amazing she was, and how she made everyone feel at ease. I cannot wait to see the photos !
Thankyou so so much Lara - words cannot express our gratitude for your hard work and contribution to making our wedding the best day ever !"

"Thank you so much, we absolutely love the photos. You’ve managed to capture the essence of our special day. It’s so lovely to see so many people chatting and laughing - it feels like we’ve filled in some of the gaps of the parts we didn’t see on the day!
Just a quick one to say a huge thank you for yesterday. We had a great day and are so grateful to you for being part of it. Our guests all told us about how fantastic you were and how easily you fitted in to everything."

I want to book you, what now?
A.Great! Once I receive the signed booking form along with the 20% deposit the date is yours. I can reserve dates for a short while while you decide if you request this.
Why should I book you?
A.I can't make the decision for you. Picking a photographer is a very personal choice. However, I really hope you like what you have seen - professionalism , fun, friendship , discreetness and natural photographs of your day. If so, then let's talk!
Can I extend the session on the day?
A.Yes, of course! I am not a clock watcher. A lot of people book me thinking they will hate every minute of having their photographs taken then on the day, completely come out of their shell and want me to stay. I only take one booking a day so if this happens, then I can stay and we can sort the additional £ after.
Will there be a second shooter?
A.No - however I can provide one for an additional cost. I specialise in smaller weddings (under 100 guests) but for larger weddings, second shooters are advised.
What equipment do you use?
A.I am a Canon lover. I won't be converted I just love Canon!
What if something goes wrong?
A.Noone can make 100% guarantee's that nothing will ever go wrong however I do everything I can to minimise the possibility of anything going wrong. This includes:
Using two camera bodies and back up memory cards in each camera
Carrying a variety of lenses should one be lost / damaged
I am fully insured including public liability insurance
I have photographer contacts should i be unable to attend
I keep fit and healthy as best I can - never undertaking dangerous sports shortly before a booking
Keeping my car serviced and tyres in order as best I can
I need a florist / hairdresser / cake maker
A.I can help! I have worked with many different suppliers and can provide recommendations from florists, live bands , hairdressers, just about anything!
Do I have to order prints through you?
A.Not at all. Many clients use online printing companies such as photobox or similar. However, if you are 'going large' or making photobooks I would strongly suggest using a professional printing company. Yes, it is more expensive but the quality is guaranteed
Do you shoot destination weddings?
A.I would LOVE to! Let's talk!
