A personal introduction


About Me
Lara Hotz ~ Director & Lead Photographer

I am a social being and an avid dreamer.
I like old furniture and fresh air.
I am an explorer of new places and faces and a hopeless romantic.

But most importantly, I love taking photos.
It’s not just my job it’s my passion.
I’m never without a camera and documenting life and moments is a daily occurrence.

Whilst my love of taking pictures began at a very young age, the College of Fine Arts UNSW allowed me to really explore the art of visual storytelling.
I carried this passion on to further studies at the National Art School and the Australian Centre of Photography and still continually work on developing and evolving my style and knowledge.

In 2006, I had the privilege of documenting my first wedding, and I instantly fell in love with the experience. Being invited into someone’s special day and entrusted to capture the joy, anticipation, excitement, and unfolding events is an extraordinary gift.

With over 15 years of experience, I take immense pride in my association with esteemed brands like VOGUE, Marie Claire and The LANE as well as beloved wedding publications such as Hello May Magazine, Green Wedding Shoes, Cosmopolitan Bride, Ruffled Bride to name a few. This recognition reflects our expertise in capturing the essence and magic of each unique love story.

It would be an honor to be part of your special day, preserving the precious moments that will forever be treasured.
Let’s embark on this incredible journey together, creating timeless photographs that encapsulate the depth of your love story.
