Acacia & Daniel

“I have been a big fan or Lara’s work for some time and was ecstatic when we were able to lock her in to document our wedding day! We knew she was incredibly talented, but we were blown away with how thoughtful and organised she was. Lara went above and beyond to share her experience and guide me throughout the whole wedding process. She was the angel on my shoulder reminding me of the things I hadn’t thought of, from reception timing to umbrellas for if it rained!
On the day Lara and her team were superstars; easy going, while still making sure we got the shots we wanted. They were flexible when it rained and managed to get incredible shots regardless of the weather. We knew we were in safe hands when it came to the quality of the photos, but we were still unprepared for how amazing our wedding documentation was when we received it! Lara captured the spirit of our day perfectly. Every time we look at our photos, we’re in awe of how beautiful and fun they are. So much goes into a wedding day, we couldn’t be happier that we invested in Lara and her incredible work because now we have stunning photos of our special day and loved ones to cherish forever.”


Jules and Sonia

“We are so glad to have had the opportunity to have Lara document our wedding day. Her enthusiasm glowed through all communication from our very first conversation, and her understanding of our concept is proven in the end result. The first sneak peak absolutely took our breath away, and upon collecting the whole set we absolutely glowed with joy. Perfect moments we would not have known were captured for us to see and enjoy.
Any idea you have, she will run with it and make it as grand as possible.
Throw away the traditional checklist photo itinerary, gather a list of what YOU want captured and she will not fail to deliver.
Lara, thank you so so so very much for everything. I just want to keep looking at the photos over and over and over.”


Miriam and Toph

“We just received our wedding photos from Lara and we are blown away! Lara was one of the first vendors I booked, as I have always loved her work, the candid narrative she tells through her photography, the vibrant colours and attention to the detail. However, our wedding photos exceeded all expectations and they are beyond glorious – we are in love with them! We’ve had so much fun reliving all the memories of the day. Lara, we cannot begin to thank enough for the natural and unobtrusive way you captured the love and spontaneity in every photo.”


Sara and Adam

“Lara and her team are totally professional but fun and relaxed (and great) all at the same time. She is creative and inspiring, and makes you feel beautiful. Lara has a way of becoming part of your wedding in a really special way. Lara also brings inspiration to the planning and it feels like she really cares about you and your wedding day. We have had more compliments on our wedding pictures than any other aspect of the day. Lara captured beautiful photos that actually reflected who we are as a couple rather than just the usual posed wedding shots. I love looking back at my pictures and smiling at all the little moments which Lara captured that I would’ve forgotten. We couldn’t recommend Lara Hotz Photography highly enough – I need more stars in the rating!”


Victoria and John

“Lara’s photographs exceeded our expectations. She captured so many beautiful moments that we will treasure for years to come. After looking at Lara’s beautiful portfolio, we knew she was the photographer for us – her unique photographic style makes everything look bloody gorgeous!
On the big day, Lara shines. I was particularly impressed by Lara’s skill at herding large groups of excited wedding guests for group photos, and the way she made my husband and I (we are both camera-shy) feel comfortable for our couple portraits. She excels at noticing and documenting the unexpected moments of the wedding day – moments you would probably forget were it not for her photos.”


Sue and Jamie

We were so lucky to have Lara capture the story of our wedding day and I truly believe no one could have done a better job than she did. Not only was Lara there to guide us on our photos, but she also provided invaluable advice on running the ceremony & reception. Her ability to tell a story shines through her portfolio of amazing work, and we always knew we wanted Lara’s eye on the day. It’s not every day (especially in the wedding industry) that you find someone who genuinely cares about their clients like Lara does.


Pinky and Bobby

“Lara documented my 2 day wedding affair in Bali and I have to say I am so happy with the results that I cannot imagine anyone else doing it. I have researched literally hundreds of photographers before settling on Lara, her style captured my attention immediately, tasteful and romantic imagery, and she made her brides look so gorgeous! Early on in our conversations she was able to advise me on how the wedding day itinerary and photography sessions would fit together. She also listened to the ideas I had and we worked really well together. On the wedding day she made everyone feel comfortable and made sure we were on schedule, while taking so many photos that I still have a hard time choosing my favourite ones! Thank you Lara for doing what you do, and for the beautiful photos that I can always look back on to remember my wedding day!”


Isobel and Matt

“Lara was incredible in every single aspect of our wedding process! We feel so lucky that we had Lara capture our big day. From the get go, she understood exactly what we were after and was detail focused, making our wedding preparation seamless. On the day, Lara was amazing. No task was too big or small and she made the sometimes arduous task of capturing everything so fun and memorable. I couldn’t recommend Lara and her team more!”
