About

wedding photographers

Our photography style is dreamy, romantic but most of all real, just like our couples! 🙂  Our aim is to capture your day as it really is, a natural reflection of who you are as a couple and the Love that is between you combined with lots of scenery shots, amazing sunsets and the nature that surrounds you.

We truly believe that in 10 years’ time you don’t want to look back and see darkness. So, if you love natural light, soft and light editing, not super imposed poses and lanscape/scenery images, than Perla Photography is the right photographer for you!

Our studio is located in 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. If you are getting married interstate / overseas we will be happy to hear from you too!

Laura

Hey there! I’m Laura. I’m a mother to a beautiful 4 year old boy, a partner to an amazing man that I adore and … a photographer! I am a winter freak, boots and checked shirts lover and I am totally obsessed with Italy (where I am from) and Canada! Most days you can find me sipping a coffee in my yoga pants and editing images away with a smile on my face!I truly believe I have the best job in the world: documenting LOVE and giving memories that last FOREVER! When I’m not busy working you can catch me scouting the perfect coffee places around the Mornington Peninsula, doing yoga with my 4 year old boy (I believe it looks more like a circus routine with him 😉 ) and enjoying food and wine (after all…I am half Italian!) I absolutely love what I do and I hope you can see my passion for photography in my images. I love wedding photography. I’m a romantic at heart ( I still cry watching Walt Disney movies .. I’m not joking 😉 ) and I get excited every time I get a phone call/email from a couple that wishes to have me as their photographer. I want to capture that magical moment when the groom sees his bride for the first time, the look of loving parents gazing at their children getting married, that spark that is in the eyes of a newly engaged couple, the fun of the bridal party

… I JUST LOVE PHOTOGRAPHING PEOPLE IN LOVE…

..so.. if you love my pictures (and only if you do) please contact us here! My second biggest passion is travelling. So, if you are getting married anywhere in the world that is not Australia contact me on my email laura@perlaphotography.com and we can start planning together!!

 

CASSIE

Hi my name is Cassie, and I always have a camera in my hand, or a coffee. I love capturing all the special moments and memories in life and preserving them forever, and Wedding photography is definitely a special moment in life that I LOVE capturing for everyone. When I’m not photographing, I spend my time adoring my family (husband, daughter and son), going to the gym keeping fit and escaping in our caravan camping whenever time permits our busy schedules.

 

 

 

 

Laura photographed our wedding and made life so much easier. From the first meeting to the newsletters she sent to the big day, Laura was nothing but helpful. She captured the day beautifully with a mix of formal and candid shots. I am so happy we chose Perla and could not have imagined my day without her.

Laura and Cassie are so talented, we are so so lucky that they captured our special day. We had a January wedding and in true Melbourne style, had torrential rain for the entire day. But this did not make a difference to Laura and Cassie - they took the most breathtaking images and absolutely made the best of the lighting we had. My husband and I are so happy with our wedding photos and couldn't have chosen better photographers! Thank you so much Laura and Cassie!

Booking Perla Photography for our wedding was by far the best decision we made! Laura is a true professional. A master of her craft, but also a genuine, kind and supportive individual – any bride and groom would be lucky to have her by their side on their big day!Laura handled everything from beginning to end in a positive, professional & calm manner. Laura made our guests feel at ease and relaxed so the photos were not your standard, posed photos, but more candid moments of genuine happiness. Laura worked with us to come up with a timeline so that we knew what to expect and when, however, her easy going nature and flexibility on the day meant we were all able to relax. We didn’t feel like Laura staged our photographs, but instead, captured natural moments making them so much more beautiful. You can see this when you look at the final product!Laura has everything under complete control and did not miss a single moment. The images produced were of such high quality – I had never imagined we could have photographs like that and I am so pleased that we found Perla Photography.

Whilst planning for our wedding at the end of 2016 we were amazed by the photographs Laura had taken of other weddings in the area - they looked beautiful, natural and included the most amazing sunset shots. We met up with Laura to discuss what we were hoping for and left knowing that Laura HAD to be our photographer - an amazing person with an amazing talent. Just over a year later and we got married on 03.01.2018 and she most certainly did not disappoint us. Laura arrived on time and quickly got to work capturing us getting ready for the wedding. She was unassuming and quickly captured beautiful moments of us, our friends and family. After the ceremony she whisked us out a couple of times to take some amazing beach photographs (and sunset ones!) and they were definitely worth it! Amazing photos! Every single person at the wedding that spoke to us about her said how wonderful and lovely she was throughout the whole evening. Once it was all over - just one day later and the sneak peak photos had appeared on facebook, followed a few days later by a private photo slide and then only a few weeks later by the rest of the photos - Just enough time between to keep people saying WOW to us every day for a couple of weeks! 🙂

We booked Perla Photography for our wedding in November 2017. Laura was fantastic throughout the whole process and always made us feel comfortable to ask questions whenever we needed too. On our wedding day Laura and Vlad were just amazing, making us feel so comfortable and capturing the most amazing images! We had the first images within a couple of days of the wedding, and all the remaining images well within the time promised!! We are so pleased with Perla Photography and we would highly recommend her to anyone requiring wedding photography! Thank you Laura!! Sam & Rich

Laura was absolutely incredible! She was super helpful in the planning and lead up to our wedding day, she replied promptly to emails and was willing to give her time to ensure the day ran smoothly. On the day she gave us great direction, she rearranged my Mum's house for the perfect backdrop, and wasn't phased when she got stormed on and pooped on by a bird! She captured the most beautiful images for us in a short amount of time between rain and sun, you would never have even known the weather was not the best! She also brought along an extra photographer and gave us double the amount of images we paid for as she wanted to ensure we got perfect photos regardless of the weather. She is a gorgeous, talented and warm hearted person who will help make your day run smoothly. Thank you so much Laura!!

We met Laura a year before our wedding and we just loved her immediately! We knew we'd get along so well with her because of her bubbly, easy going personality. We did our engagement photoshoot with her a few months later as a trial to practice how to take photos for our wedding (lol!) and she BLEW US AWAY with our engagement photos. That magic hour shots were just amazing.We got married on the 15th of September 2018 and we already received all our photos. Let me just tell you, Perla Photography go ABOVE AND BEYOND your expectations. We could not be happier with our photos, and the fact that she got all our big moments and candid moments that we hadn't even realised were happening while we were busy. We all loved photographing with her as she made us feel so happy and relaxed and we didn't feel like we were posing at all for our photos. I could not tell you enough how pleased we are with the photos and how difficult it will now be to choose prints to put up in our home because we pretty much have at least 30 photos we love - but we don't want to make our home a wedding day gallery lol. Laura and Miranda, thank you thank you thank you from the bottom of our hearts for the amazing photos of the best memories of our happiest day. Thank you for being so awesome and for being so fun to be around!xoxo Sophia (and Kieran)

Laura at Perla Photography is such an amazing person, as well as photographer. From our first meeting with her, my wife and I had a great feeling about her as a person and a professional. Laura's experience and photographs really speak for themselves, do yourself a favour and check out her website and facebook page. Laura was soo helpful before the wedding, giving us tips and reminders coming up to it. Then on the day, nothing was too big or too small for Laura to handle. She has a very natural and comfortable way of getting you to do certain poses and shots that was fun and not at all akward. We just got our photos back from Laura and, as expected, they are all amazing. The quality and care taken in each photo really shows (had a slideshow going on our FHD 55" TV and they looked incredible), and the turnaround was surprisingly quick. You will be glad that you choose to have your precious memories captured by Laura and Perla Photography.

Perla Photography was just amazing on our wedding day. The pictures are such good quality and stunning. Laura was so good on the day as well. She just made everything flow so easily. It is definitely worth spending a bit extra and knowing that the pictures will just speak for themselves. Thank you once again for capturing all the moments possible xx

We cannot recommend Perla Photography highly enough! We fell in love with Laura the moment we met her. She was so lovely and we could see how passionate she was about her job! In the lead up to the wedding Laura was so helpful in answering all of my questions. On the day she was a complete professional and made us so comfortable. When we got our photos back we were taken back by just how beautiful they were. She captured the day perfectly. Thank you again Laura!

From the very beginning we could not fault the team at Perla Photography. The packages they have covered exactly what we wanted and they were happy to have additional time added to ensure they covered all of the special moments of our day. Cassie and Sean were fantastic on the day very calm and professional on the day which is helpful to a busy and nervous bride and groom. They captured beautiful photos and many natural and candid moments. Shortly after our wedding day we began to see the beautiful work these two lovely people did and were so impressed with the amazing photos we could choose for our album. We are so very happy with our beautiful album. The quality is amazing and the beautiful images you both took look even more stunning printed. We couldn’t be happier to have chosen Perla Photography for our big day you both captured a lot of beautiful moments we will be able to cherish forever. I would highly recommend Perla Photography and have had so many comments on how amazing our wedding photos are. Thank you

Perla Photography is absolutely incredible!!! From start to finish Laura was so wonderful to work with. She was so helpful and responsive to all of our questions. On the wedding day she was so easy going and made us feel so comfortable! The weather on the day was a bit crazy but we ended up having the most amazing time taking pictures in the rain! Laura has such a beautiful presence that helped to create such a great atmosphere on the day. We received a few sneak peak photos the very next day which were amazing! When we received our entire album (very soon after the wedding) there were so many gorgeous images to choose from! We absolutely loved the photos she took, she really captured the day perfectly. We cannot speak more highly of Laura and her team at Perla Photography. We could go on for days about how amazing she is and would highly recommend her to anyone who is getting married! Thank you Laura for making our special day even more special!

We used Perla Photography for our recent wedding. Couldn't have been more impressed with their professionalism, attitude, approach and of course the results. On what is a somewhat stressful time they were nothing but accommodating and helpful. We had an enormous bridal party and a large group of friends and family attending on the day, Perla managed to capture all the special moments - without us hardly noticing them in the background. They also managed to help keep me (the bride) calm and help us on the day and night to keep things running smoothly. I felt very comfortable in their capable hands and taking their directions in regards to photos. In the lead up to the big day they asked all the right questions so they knew exactly what we were after, as well as that they sent through helpful information which meant we were well equipped for any situation and all on the same page. I am so happy we chose Perla Photography - the results are perfectly us, nothing was staged or unnatural. Highly recommend Cassie & the team at Perla - absolute legends! xxx
