July 24, 2011

If you live in London, England and you are looking for a fantastic photographer for a Bar/Bat Mitzvah, a wedding, engagement, a bris or any other family or communal function – you might as well stop your search right now.  Because I have found your girl!  Her name is Lara, her website is – and after you have taken one look at it, you will know why I am raving about her services!  With the click of a lens Lara has the incredible ability to capture time, life and emotion.

Just look how she captured the excitement here:

Since we have a growing number of UK visitors to our website, I thought it would be helpful if I opened a lens into Lara’s work (excuse the pun).  I contacted her with some questions, and this is what she told me:

Q: Where do you work?

A: My studio is based in Hendon but I work wherever the functions are  – all over London, Herfordshire, up north etc.

Q: What sort of events do you photograph?

A: I do all functions baby parties, brit milahs, bar/bat mitzvahs, weddings, anniversaries, birthdays.

Q: Anyone looking at your work can tell you have talent and a magic touch, what do you think makes your work special?

A: I have been blessed with an arty eye & one for detail. As a photographer I strive to be everywhere- but at the same time to be discreet and not to get in the way.  I blend in and photograph the simcha as it is. Before the simcha even begins I create lovely portraits of the family, and I know that my photos are always cherished.

Q: What do you like best about your line of work?

A: I just love capturing simcha – happiness, fun and laughter. It’s amazing to be apart of so many lovely things. Put it like this – I am always smiling behind my camera.

Q: What advice would you give to Londoners looking for a photographer for a bar/bat Mitzvah, an engagement, a wedding or any other function?

A: The best advice I would give is to make sure firstly that you like the photographer’s work and secondly to make sure you like them!  Your photographer will be around you the whole day/evening and then you will be dealing with them afterwards, so be sure you are comfortable with their company.

Q: What’s the best feedback a client has given you?

A: I am so lucky to get fantastic feedback from most of my clients but I keep on going back to read this letter – I was the photographer at the baby’s bris:

Lara- I just had to write to you- I was just looking at the pictures from David’s bris and had to tell you how BRILLIANT they are- you really captured the emotion of the day- all the tears and the smiles, the family unity, not to mention the sheer joy that we all felt to finally be there celebrating the long awaited event!”

So readers in London, if it’s party time and you need a fantastic photographer – then don’t hesitate to check out Lara’s fabulous work at
