Originally written for Laura Trif Photography
My name is Laura and I am a professional photographer, specialised in couple photography – with a twist. I help couples bring to life their love stories through candid shots and real moments captured on camera, in the magical city of Barcelona. For the last two years, Barcelona has been my home and happy place. Now I want to share its thrilling charm with you through a photo session that you will remember long after, with a smile.
My mission is to bring to life a reflection of the beautiful love that exists in people’s lives. I am a romantic at heart. I breathe, dream and aim to have my photography be like the light touch of Cupid’s wings that embraces the inimitability of each love story. It is my hope that the ravishing imagery of your love on Barcelona’s background will hang on the walls of your home, as a tender token of the love you have one for another.
My journey as a photographer started back in 2003, with an old film camera. Fascinated, I bought my first DSLR camera in 2005 and taught myself how best to capture delightful scenery, peculiar details and hypnotic perspectives. My camera quickly became my own extension. In 2013, I took it a step forward and graduated from a professional photography course. I started photographing couples soon after, discovering my biggest passion in the process. I haven’t stopped since.
What makes a photograph extraordinary in my view? Its ability to grasp the gripping, strong, raw emotions we all know and make them accessible, relatable, universal. During my travels I learned that cultures are different, but emotions are alike. I love capturing human emotion in all its forms, rawness and beauty – the warmth in the eyes of a couple, the love for a child, the overwhelming joy of having achieved a goal. My photography offers distinctive interpretations of the everyday magic that we create. I see it, and I want to show it, too.
I speak Romanian, English and Spanish, but my language of choice remains photography. The longer I photograph, the more fascinated I am by the power a single image can hold. They say that photography is writing with light. I believe that whole-heartedly, and continue to express my love for stories through candid, heartwarming shots. My photography style is part art, part medium for storytelling.
I would love to help you plan your special day with your loved one, but if you prefer an individual session, I am also specialised in lifestyle and portraiture and will gladly turn your portrait photography session into a fun, tailor-made experience that best reflects your personality.
