I used Sean as my photographer for my destination wedding in Punta Cana, Dominican Republic and couldn’t have made a better choice!! Sean was so attentive and helpful before, during and after the whole trip and really made us feel comfortable. Our wedding package came with a photographer, but I chose Sean anyway and took a big risk paying an additional photographer to come to the D.R. and make the most memorable day of my life come alive forever through the photos, but we couldn’t have made a better decision – probably the best decision of my entire wedding! We told the photographer that came with the wedding package to take a hike and didn’t keep any of the photos they took, whereas I got HUNDREDS with Sean (seriously, like nearly 1000 photos…) and when trying to choose which ones I’d put in my frames at home, I just couldn’t choose because they were all equally as good!! Trust me and pick Sean for your photography needs, whether in Fort Collins, or the moon – he will impress you with more than expected! – Amanda & Joe Hoffman

Sean is an amazing professional. We chose him over dozens of other photographers because he was on point from the very first day we contacted him. He checked in routinely leading up to our wedding and when the day came, he knocked it out of the park! (Literally, we were married in a park) He was punctual, dressed professionally to fit in with the occasion, and captured the most amazing moments of our special day. We had concern that family members and friends would slow down the posed shots but Sean kept everyone, and therefore the entire day, on schedule. When it came to the reception, he floated in and out of the fun without any notice and took some epic photos! He even managed to get a perfect shot of my brother doing “the worm” across the dance floor which is absolutely PRICELESS. Sean is incredibly talented and we fully endorse him to make any memory last a lifetime. -Will & Emily Dehner


At first, I was nervous to have Sean as my photographer, solely for the reason because I thought I could not afford it. But Sean worked with my budget 100%, and I was so incredibly happy to have him shoot the photos at my wedding! He was very fun and personable while taking the photos, and half the time, I didn’t even see him taking pictures (which is a good thing [no bride wants a camera up in her face])! Once I received the photos, I was truly blown away! Sean is the #1 photographer in CO for a good reason! He was so artistic and creative, and he captured every moment and detail from the wedding perfectly. I can say that I could not be happier with these photos! He is amazing! If you’re second-guessing, DON’T! He is worth it! Thank you Sean — you rock!Mishayla & Cody Stevenson


10 STARS!!! Sean Lara Photography is absolutely the best!! Sean was there with us every step of the way! The second we talked to Sean about our wedding we knew right away he was the one who would do our photography and trust me we had calls with at least 8 different photographers. Everyone’s biggest advice was make sure you love your photographer because you will have those photos for the rest of your life. We lived in Dallas and was planning a wedding in Colorado. I can honestly say it was the most seamless experience. The photos are stunning and they captured the whole day. They were very realistic with me but also brought visions to life. You will LOVE Lara Photography and I can assure you won’t be disappointed! – Jenna & Nick Harpin


“Where do I start when there’s so much AWESOME to talk about… I mean, you can look through Sean’s photos and see that you’ve got a 100% chance of getting an amazing portfolio of pictures from him. Sean’s talent knows no bounds. We had super high expectations for our engagement photos because of this and he STILL massively exceeded them. But as we learned on our adventure photoshoot trip with Sean, there’s so much more to being a great wedding/engagement photographer than just being able to compose a pretty picture. He is incredibly friendly, extremely well-organized, and knows how to interact with people to get the best out of them while reducing stress levels to zero. He’s brilliant and you should absolutely give him a call to talk about your event!” – David & Nicole

Sean took photos for our engagement and wedding, and he did such a phenomenal job! He was amazing to work with and has such a fun personality that made our time with him so fun. He has an excellent eye for what makes beautiful photos, and takes a good mix of artistic and genuine photos. We also loved that he uses infrared photography, which was so unique. Sean is just simply the best there is, no question about it! We definitely will keep him around for future family photos. We also used Chris to take video during our wedding, and he as well did an amazing job! We felt that the photography and video for capturing our day was so important, and Sean and Chris exceeded our expectations and created wonderful memories for us to look back on. I wish we could give him more than 5 stars! – Stephenie & Kevin Hobson


Sean is such an amazing photographer! He shot our wedding on 03/03/13 and also did our engagement photos. I cannot say enough how wonderful our photos turned out for both events! He is extremely talented! He saw photo opportunities that I never would have thought would work, but they turned out beautifully. He took photos from a lot of different angles and in different light. He carried multiple cameras with him, and he managed to catch a lot of things other photographers would have missed. He was very professional and flexible. Whenever I emailed him he was very prompt with his responses. My husband and I are so grateful to have such beautiful pictures to look back on. Sean helped create many memories for one of the most important days of our lives and we can’t thank him enough. – Shannon & Bryan Jacobs


Sean has such an amazing talent for capturing ‘moments’ which is exactly what you want on your wedding day. Sean creates stunning shots that take us back to the day each time we look at them. Sean, You’ve captured all the emotions, laughter and love perfectly. They have also been amazing to show family and friends that couldn’t make our day and all of them have said they feel like they were there after viewing them. I especially loved the infrared photography. Sean’s ability not to miss a moment is incredible, and his energy and passion comes across in the photos. I feel extremely fortunate to have found this talented photographer. I would recommend Sean to everyone. – Selina & Jake Novak


From beginning to end, Sean was an amazing person to work with. He was always available to answer questions, provide advice and give suggestions when we needed it most in terms of our vision for pictures. Because of his open-mind and detail to attention, our wedding pictures turned out so perfect! He captured everything from start to finish and I was so moved by how many amazing moments he caught for us to enjoy for many years. I would suggest to any future bride/groom that you make an appointment with him. You won’t be disappointed! Thanks Sean for these amazing pictures that we will enjoy with our friends and family! – Natasha & Trent Mellgren


Sean was amazing on our wedding day and the time leading up to it! I can’t say enough wonderful things about Sean as a person and a photographer. He is sweet and fun to work with. From the minute we started working with Sean he had wonderful ideas and made us feel confident about all our decisions. We did not want to have a first look but had limited time after the ceremony for photos. He told us no problem- it was our day and he would make anything possible and he did! Throughout the day his energy was upbeat and fun, creating a relaxed atmosphere for the photos. During the ceremony and reception you could barely tell he was there, however he got the most fantastic candid shots that really captured the essence of the day. He made sure to pull us away briefly at sunset from the reception to get some incredible shots which are some of our favorite from the day. Sean will make sure that the photos you have from your wedding day are an everlasting memory that you want to look at over and over again! He uses unique tools and approaches to capture images and create an updated look to your wedding photos. Definitely use Sean if you want to work with someone you enjoy being around and beautiful photos that you will love forever!. – Kim & Austin Bell


FIRST and foremost, WOW!!! This guy was SO fun to work with, it was truly an honor to work with him. 5 stars isn’t enough stars for this guy. Sean, not only did you capture all the moments to cherish, but thanks to your explicit sense to detail, like me, I am truly blessed to have gotten such quality photos!!! Not to mention his fiance working the photo booth was AWESOME!! She has such a personality. I am excited for your guys big day!! Congrats times a million! anyways, I intend to use you for future uses when needed. He made it so easy! One thing that was my fault that I should have done that HE suggested (you know every bride loses track lol) was to send him examples of the major pics i wanted. Even though we captured most of them from memory, there were a few I wish I tried. Throughout the day I did have him do a few from memory and they turned out perfectly perfect! Made us feel like a model. SO in all seriousness, YOU ARE THE BEST!!! thank you for having talent and passion for your work– Ruben & Jamie G.


We booked with Sean for our wedding on Sept 17th, 2011 and just got our wedding pictures back. I can’t emphasize how happy we are! Not only with Sean himself, his professionalism, flexibility, and the turn around time of getting our pictures, but the shots themselves are breathtaking. I really wanted wedding photos that had an artistic, unique look to them, and Sean has an eye for capturing images with dramatic lighting, angles, and effects (foreground focused, background soft, etc.) There are some gorgeous shots of a full scenic area with us off to one side, or walking from the back. I am also extremely pleased with the variety of shots taken- he got every moment possible, even moments I missed seeing at my own wedding! It was as if we hired 2 photographers, because he got us coming and going all the time, and many shots of each moment (putting on the rings, reading vows, kissing, walking, shots of family members’ expressions, etc.) I don’t remember seeing him in all those different places during the wedding, which meant he blended in well, but he was climbing rocks and waterfalls to get the right shot! I am so happy with Sean- he is wonderful. Don’t hesitate- I would recommend him to my family and very best friends. Thank you Sean! – Carrie & Mark C. 


We had Sean as our wedding photographer and there are not enough words to describe how GREAT he is! Sean was always professional, patient and very accommodating. He listened to all of our suggestions and was always willing to try anything we wanted and most importantly he made us feel relaxed and comfortable during the entire process. We received our engagement and wedding photos quickly and every single photo was AMAZING!! Sean was extremely easy to work with. He was responsive and very helpful. Compared to all of our other vendors, Sean was the easiest to work with. He was the one vendor that gave us absolutely no problems and nothing to worry about during the entire process. I would and have already recommended Sean to others. If you are seeking a professional, easy to work with, and great photos of your event, then I highly recommend Sean. – Manny & Chiyo N.


Sean has been capturing my family photos for 3 years now and I have consistently been ecstatic with his results. Sean is very open to ideas and trying new things. The first year we booked him our family decided to do a family photo with our firearms in the Poudre Canyon for our Christmas card, I will tell you they were a huge hit. It was such a blast, he captured some awesome shots. Just this year, Sean was gracious enough to get my family in for a last minute shoot, when my son who is stationed in Germany serving in the Army came home on leave unexpectedly. Sean is awesome and braves the weather conditions to make his clients happy. His attention to detail is paramount, along with being accommodating with scheduling and his turn- around time with pictures is even greater. Sean is meticulous about his work and invariably aims to make his clients happy. Book a session and believe me, you will not be sorry. – Camarillo Family


fort collins senior portrait photographer

Such a good experience with Sean for my senior pics. He was willing to work with me on time, location, help with outfit, every detail that could possibly matter to make it easy as could be for me. You can tell that with Sean it’s not about quantity as much as it is quality. The day we originally scheduled had not ideal weather and he insisted we change it just to ensure the best picture quality, and for me that was the most meaningful part of the experience because you can see there’s pride in his work. Definitely have and will continue to recommend Sean to my friends because he’s amazing at what he does and awesome to work with! 10/10 stars if I could! – Denis Malinin


I met Sean several years ago when he was one of my top photography students. Back then, he was already an aspiring photographer and had an artistic eye and a passion for the medium. Recently, I attended an event that Sean was photographing and I hired him to take my family’s portrait. Sean worked with my family to find a time that was best for our young daughter and us. We wanted a location that was unique to our family and I was thrilled that Sean not only made several recommendations for our shoot, but also was flexible when we had our own suggestions. On the day of our photo session, we met Sean on location. He arrived early with several cameras and a smile. The time we took taking pictures flew by, as it was a blast! Prior to the shoot, I was concerned with how my daughter would react to getting her picture taken, but Sean had a way to get her attention and make her smile for the camera. Overall, our experience with Sean was awesome! The photographs were exactly what I wanted and a huge hit with our extended family and friends. Since this shoot, I have highly recommended Sean to both friends and family for both weddings and portrait sittings.Kelly Family
