My name is Laura. I am in love with photography, and its ability to tell stories, spark emotions, make political statements, document history, reveal tenderness between lovers, and I love that it is our only means of truly stopping and going back in time.
I began Rust and Bark Wedding Photography in 2016 with a primary focus on intimate weddings, couple’s, and creative conceptual work. Prior to beginning my business, I studied photography at OCAD University, and it was there that I began to understand how to execute ideas into concepts and stories, and my vision into tangible photographs. I draw so much of my inspiration from old paintings and cinema, which is why I will always aim to create images that hold a sense of softness and romance through my composition and editing techniques. Though I am based in Toronto, Ontario, travel is a huge part of why I love what I do, and I embrace any exposure to new places and people. My mission is to peel back your layers to show the real emotions you share with the world by photographing those raw and candid moments.
