For me, there's just something about capturing emotion; freezing that special moment in time that I just can't get enough of...and then adding a little something to it...something that makes it special; unique. My goal is to not only provide memories for my clients, but meaningful and beautiful artwork that they can proudly display in their homes.
My love for photography started in highschool. I learned my trade on a film camera...yes I worked in manual mode 100% of the time (crazy!), developed my own film and exposed my own prints. What an amazing experience!!! Don't get me wrong...I love my D4, but watching your very own concept come alive before your eyes in a darkroom is a ton of fun; and I have to admit I miss it!
My second in command is my mother...who provided our family with a ton of wonderful memories throughout the years and is probably where I get my creative eye from. She's amazing :-).
So...if our style catches your eye; I'd love to talk more with you about your wedding day plans, how you met the love of your life, and other tidbits you'd like to share.
I absolutely love what I do and hope that translates into the images I take. So... shoot me an email or give me a ring if you have any specific questions.
Looking forward to hearing from you!
Best Regards -- Lara's Photography, LLC
FYI...we LOVE coffee in our home!!!!...so if you decide you'd like to talk further and check out my stuff...be prepared for coffee and sweets! OR if you prefer...wine/beer and snacks.

There are not enough words I can write to describe how fantastic Lara Arthur is. I found her when I attended my friend's wedding last May. After flipping through their guestbook, I was blown away by her talents, creativity, and technical skills. A week after their wedding, my fiance proposed. A week after that? I booked Lara as our wedding photographer. Anyone can grab a digital camera and call themselves a photographer these days. But if you are looking for someone to capture the moment so you can relive it as often as you want, to not have to worry about whether she is able to see what you see in a special moment, to have more than just professional snap-shot photography, then look no further than Lara. I am a bit of a photography buff myself, and never once did I have to worry about Lara not seeing what I wanted her to. She was all over it. Not only that, but one of the most special things about working with Lara is that she works with her mom, Karen. You get double the coverage at no extra charge and Karen is just as exquisite in her creative talents. While not the cheapest photographer out there, I would bet my left arm that she has the most bang for your buck in all that is included in her wedding package (she has multiple levels to choose from). If you want cheap photography, go with a cheaper photographer. When it comes to this art form, you get what you pay for. For me, there was only one shot at capturing my wedding day and only one photographer. Thank you, Lara, I know this is a start to a beautiful relationship :).Sent on 10/29/2013

Lara and I met back when I was in college and I knew she was artistic and into photography however, it's been awhile and it was through Facebook that I was reminded of just how talented she really was. My husband and I actually hired another photographer and she left me feeling anxious. As I was on Facebook I started seeing a lot of Lara's work pop up on my newsfeed. I was so impressed, I messages her for information and it was a done deal! We never looked back or regretted our decision. Lara listened to us every step of the way and was a tremendous guide in helping us capture the essence of what we wanted. We loved her artistic eye and how she was willing to experiment. We had a great time with her on out engagement shoot and she was priceless on our wedding day! We had our wedding in DC on Labor Day weekend of 2013 and there were protest going on at the White House, Lara made sure she left extra early and she was actually the 1st person to my room. She was with us the whole day and she went above and beyond what a photographer would and should do. She was like a wedding coordinator, bridesmaid, and photographer all rolled into one. We were so excited when we saw our pictures. She captured our big day beautifully and words can not express our gratitude and how happy we are with her work. We would highly recommend Lara to anyone looking for an amazing photographer.Sent on 12/16/2013

Wow! What can I say about Lara! She made our engagement and wedding photos more than I ever could have imagined. I knew I could count on her every step of the way. It was so nice having at least one thing not to worry about during the wedding planning process and that was Lara. Our photos and albums turned out perfectly. Lara was so easy to work with and was helpful and patient with me throughout the entire process. I would highly recommend her for any of your photography needs. I know we'll be using her expert skills for many years to come! Thanks again, Lara!Sent on 12/15/2013
