Laura Barbera Photography

Hi, I’m Laura!
Or maybe I should say “Hi, I’m a lucky girl” because my work is my greatest passion!
I'm an Italian wedding photographer, based in my beloved Tuscany, but I love traveling and having the opportunity to tell the story of your wedding or elopement day wherever you want.
I love spontaneity and people who have the courage to express their emotions, so my photographic style is a mix of photojournalistic wedding photography and romantic couple portraits, not posed but natural.
I'm available for destination weddings in Italy: Tuscany, Val d'Orcia, Cinque Terre, Amalfi Coast, Venice and wherever you want me to be with you.

I have always been, since childhood, deeply attracted to people, intrigued by their actions, their thoughts, and especially by what they feel and express.
I went to school with my little Nikon camera, one of the most fitting gift that my parents could do! I filled rolls with faces, situations, emotions … review photos helped me to settle the most beautiful memories.
I remember that I tried to photograph the joy, the student spirit, the complicity, friendship, love … and still, today, reviewing those shots, I feel again the same feelings and emotions.
In this way, I understand that the photograph has enormous power in the life of each of us.
When I grow up, all this turns into a job, I’m a psychologist psychotherapist specializing in the use of photography as a tool of psychological insight.
The transition to becoming a wedding photographer was by accident…
To tell the stories of the people through images, was the completion and integration of my passions.

I love…

…Cooking, as the conviviality shared with loved ones
…The summer, when I sip a glass of chilled white wine on the beach at sunset
…The winter, when the noisy storms contrast with the silence of a book, a sofa, and a plaid
…Playing hide and seek with my cat, I swear!
…And say what I think even when it can sound inconvenient!

I could not live without…

…My few but trusted friends
…My car
…The fear that gives me the courage

I think…

…The sensibility, the determination, the curiosity, the accord with own emotions, the knowledge, the continuous research to discover and to expose ourselves, can move any mountain!
…The Love, the real one, that has nothing to do with our unfulfilled needs, exist
…But to live it authentically, first of all, we have to learn loving ourselves!
