Hi there! I’m Laura. I am a wife, mother to a cheeky 2 year old girl and a creative 8 year old boy, and a photographer. When I am not capturing weddings you can find me scouting the best photo locations with my family and enjoying all the coffee, food and wine that the Mornington Peninsula has got to offer.
I was born and raised in Italy. With my family I go back to Lake Como every year to visit the nonni and extensive relatives. As a true Italian, I am very romantic and very passionate about everything I do.
I love photography with all my heart and it’s crazy thinking that what started as a dream is now a successful wedding photography business. I have found a team of photographers that share my passion and vision for weddings. Perla Photography has captured more than 400 weddings all over the world and we have been featured on countless magazines and wedding blogs. But what makes me happier is all the joy that we have been able to deliver to all our couples.
You will be so busy and caught up by your emotions on your wedding day that you won’t be able to see the little things that happen in the background. But we will! So when you view your images, it will be like getting married again. For the first time you will see your mum crying as you were walking down the aisle, your grandparents holding hands as you were saying I do, your bridesmaids losing it during speeches… all those tiny little things and moments that make your Day uniquely yours!
I believe that our couples want to savour every single moment from their Day and not just the portrait session. That is why we LOVE candid photos of not only the couple but all the guests laughing, interacting and just having FUN! But don't worry, we will also give you those amazing images, the ones with the perfect light, with the perfect posing.. the ones you will print and hang on your walls where you are looking like movie stars 😉 .. For this reason, we offer more guidance during the couple and bridal photo-shoot. Your images will be a combination of carefully curated images from your portrait session and super raw ones.
And let’s be honest, in 10 years’ time you don’t want to look back and see darkness (sorry moody photographers!) So, if you love natural light, soft and light editing, happy shots of all your loved ones and lanscape/scenery images, than Perla Photography is the right photographer for you!
Our studio is located on Main Street, Mornington. There’s nothing we love more than flicking through the pages of the albums we have designed while getting to know you better and planning your Big Day ahead.
We are available to travel anywhere. Most of our weddings take place on the Mornington Peninsula, Yarra Valley, Dandenong Ranges, Daylesford and Melbourne. But if you are getting married interstate / overseas we will be happy to hear from you too! We have been to Europe, Fiji and many more countries to capture weddings!
