If I had to to describe our photo style in one phrase, it would be “Artistic Photojournalism”. My goal with every wedding and portrait session take a photojournalist approach, focusing on capturing real moments and emotions while putting a creative edge on the photographs. I see every client and wedding uniquely and take the extra step to match my photos with the personality of each individual couple. As your photographer for any wedding or other event, I pride myself with providing you the quality service you deserve in a fun and professional manner.
Today’s camera technology is fascinating and with a little bit of practice, anyone can take a good photo. “Uncle Bob” can come to your wedding with his camera and probably capture a couple of really great shots. What “Uncle Bob” can’t do however is coordinate large groups of family for a well composed photo, know how to properly pose a bride and groom, understand what moments to look for, or how to take incredibly creative images while sticking to a strict timeline. What sets me apart is the 250+ weddings I’ve captured since 2010 and thousands of hours on other photo assignments. I know what moments to look for and when they’re going to happen so you can be assured that when it comes to capturing your special day, you can actually enjoy it and not have to worry about your photographer. I bring a large variety of photography gear not only to be prepared for different situations, but in the event that my gear fails – I’m always prepared with backup equipment. Myself and my photographers are fully insured to cover equipment, incidentals and to meet venue requirements.
Our images are fun, creative and stand-out from that “cookie-cutter” style you see everywhere else. I use advanced lighting techniques to create drama and romance, employ the use of infrared photography to create an amazing piece of art, capture all of the details you’ve worked on for months that tie the wedding together and help pose you, your family and friends to look their best.

We’re great at posing small and large groups to help everyone look their best.
Sean Lara Photography and friends specialize in Wedding, Engagement and Portraiture photography. We also provide all sorts of event coverage, lifestyle photography and product photography. Our home base is in Fort Collins traveling all throughout the state of Colorado and surrounding regions. In addition, I regularly photograph weddings in California and other destination locations around the world. There’s no where I won’t go.
With every photo session, printing and sharing rights are included. You can have me make some beautiful framed prints or albums for you, or you have the option of doing it yourself. All the final photos from the day of the session are uploaded into an online gallery for you to share with family and friends. They’re organized by event for easy viewing and navigation. You can download all the photos at once to your computer, or you can download them individually if a guest just wants to pick out the select few. In addition, you have the option to buy prints directly from the gallery which will be sent to your door. Here are some live examples of what those galleries may look like: View Event Galleries Here.
