Imagine what it would it would be like to wake each Saturday morning with the knowledge that you’re about to witness two people declare their eternal love for each other. Some Saturdays you’re lucky enough to be a bystander at back to back weddings.
For photographer Lara Hotz, this has been her reality for years. The award winning ‘visual storyteller’ has made an indelible mark on the world of weddings, chronicling the special moments of brides and grooms both here in Australia and internationally.
So, with an artillery of knowledge, tips and tricks, dos and do nots, we were thrilled to learn that Lara’s own nuptials were fast approaching. Her Kangaroo Valley wedding to long term partner Cass Mezups.
With a penchant for whimsy, florals, quirk and nostalgia, her almost 10000 Facebook followers had a fair idea of what her big day may look like. But the pressing question remains…who does someone within the industry choose to help create her vision?
Interestingly, Lara chose not to photograph her own wedding, a la Liisa Luts and instead enlisted the collective talents of her guests, a photo booth (The Photo Booth Guys) and fellow photography colleague Dan O’Day.
Naturally, the results were breathtaking. Check them out here: https://www.facebook.com/larahotz
So who else did Lara and Cass enlist to bring their dream day to life?
