Lara Jacques Photography was born in 2013 after the birth of my first son, Benjamin where I used this new venture as an escape from nappies and baby talk, doing something for myself and enjoying every second of having a camera in my hand. This hasn't changed and I am still as obsessed with photography as I have ever been, and have so many fond memories of all the couples, families, individuals and pets that I have met on my journey.
I am now a mother of two boys so photography is my escape from a crazy life! Some people do yoga to relax; I do photography and I highly recommend it. It is just the most rewarding job ever. It also offers a good dose of adrenaline too (an homage to my days as a police officer)!
Like so many people I hate being in front of a camera and this photo is one of very few that we have of us as a family but it will hopefully give you reassurance that I completely understand the fear you may currently have about being photographed. My job is to put you at ease so you enjoy the experience, which we will! I just wish I could take my own advice!
Every photographer is different; we all like to do things in a slightly different way, and have our own 'style' and working practices and this is what should make your journey to finding your ideal photographer so exciting.
I hope you like what you see!

"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."
