About Laurentina Photography
Hey! I'm Laura, though most people know me as Lauretta. I'm a runner yogi, cat mom to my brown tabby cat "Gioia Lucia", Italianista and world traveler who resides in Reston, VA. I am also a destination wedding photographer who serves the DC Metro Area and beyond!
It's been over a decade since I received my first digital camera and spent an unforgettable semester abroad in Orvieto, Italy. Countless hours were spent (with friends & da sola) sitting in the piazzas of this medieval town, people watching and observing their interactions. I was also fascinated by how light frames the photo, both through the stained glass of a church window or gently emerging into the horizon.
After I received my M.A. in Art & Museum Education from Georgetown University & Sotheby's Institute of Art - London, I started documenting special events for an art gallery in Washington DC and invested in my first DSLR camera. Not long after that, I officially started wedding and commercial photography... and the rest is HISTORY!
My photographic journey has continued through work in independent schools, art galleries and community events across the DC metro area and beyond. These adventures have taught me the true power of photography: to not only preserve ethereal moments, but also to invite the viewer to look deeper.
I am so grateful for a job that allows me to travel all over the world and connect with a diverse array of people -- telling their stories through powerful scenes and imagery. We added wedding videography in 2017 and love creating films that are both memorable and meaningful.
