The Studio Nouveau is the fusion of two creative minds, brought together to bring you the utmost in inspiring documentary wedding photography. This isn’t photography for the faint of heart; we’ll go the distance to get the photo that makes your heart race when you look at it years later. Sure, we’ll still do the pretty group shots that your family will all want for their mantles. But we’ll also do the romantic ones of you two alone on the beach. The sassy ones of you smooching in an ice-cream parlor. The chic ones of a couple strolling down a busy city sidewalk.

With a background in illustration, painting, design and photography, Lara and Kate bring weddings alive with color, emotion, and a fresh perspective. They’re two cheeky girls, with one chic vision. Read less

Lara, Christine and Val shot our crazy Indian-Jewish wedding in June 2014 -- we are unbelievably thrilled with the pictures. From the very beginning of the process to the end, the SN team were accommodating to our needs, were flexible and responsive, and were just an absolute pleasure to work with (and so much fun -- they were not even afraid to get into the mix for the Horah and bollywood dance!) Thank you so much for capturing the night so perfectly (and capturing so many details we couldn't see!)

Kate and Lara are fabulous (and from what I have seen from their staff, the rest of the Studio Nouveau team is just as fabulous)! Our guests continue to talk about how professional, fun, and energetic our two photographers were. They are creative and friendly, and have a genuineness about them that makes their clients instantly feel like part of the Studio Nouveau family. Not to mention - their photography is to die for! I would recommend them over and over and over again!

It's tough to sum up all of Studio Nouveau's awesomeness in this little review, but all I can tell you is that their work speaks for itself. Just looking at the original sample slideshow they sent me brought tears to my eyes - and the pictures were of perfect strangers. I knew right then and there (puffy eyes and all) that they were the photographers for me.

All of the ladies that work with the Studio are the perfect mix of professional and personable. They're stylish, fun and like they say - they love love. Basically, you'll want to be best friends with them.

Most importantly, they're no nonsense. No one at the wedding will know they're there, which I mean in the most complimentary of ways. They work their photo ninja magic to capture formal and candid moments alike, with the utmost attention to every single detail. I already told them in an email, but it's worth rewriting here: I am in absolute awe of everything that they do.

I can't say enough good things about The Studio Nouveau. One thing I should point out though is that I am so glad they were by our sides to take pictures on the biggest day of mine and my husband's life. I feel forever indebted to them for providing us with photographic proof that our wedding day was perfect :)

I was referred to Studio Nouveau through a professional photographer friend of mine and was thrilled with the ladies, Kate and Lara, from the start. They have great senses of humor and just made us feel so comfortable immediately. We ended up getting an engagement shoot, and were so incredibly impressed with their work. On the actual wedding day the girls were so inconspicuous, and did such a perfect job. At the reception I even asked them to stay an extra hour because guests were having such a fun time at the photo booth. Get the photo booth!!!! Their photography style is beautiful and natural, and they are not intrusive at all. Plus, they're really cool chicks!

My first interaction with Studio Nouveau was when they photographed one of my best friend's weddings where I was a bridesmaid - and they were AH-MAZING. So fun, flexible and really got in there to guarantee the best shots. They also did a boudoir photo-shoot as my friend's groom's gift and I knew right away I needed to do one for my wedding a few months later. Not only were they super fun, accommodating, friendly AND professional during the shoot, they also hustled to make sure I would get my album in time for my wedding! My *now* husband is BEYOND thrilled with the album - he had no idea I had gone to get this done. Best decision I have ever made was going to Studio Nouveau - thanks again Lara & Kate!! You girls ROCK!!!

I recently participated in a Boudoir Marathon shoot with Kate and Lara, it was awesome! I was a bit nervous and unsure about doing it, however they immediately put me at ease. I was laughing and having fun in no time. I am also involved in the wedding industry so I work with photographers all the time and see their work product, these ladies are so fun to work with AND they are incredible at capturing gorgeous images. I highly recommend them!

Studio Nouveau is beyond amazing. I recently signed up for their boudoir marathon and was so incredibly nervous. Within 10 minutes of being in their presence, I forgot about all my inhibitions. Even without the photographs at the end, the experience with them; the way we laughed and how they made me feel, was absolutely incredible. The beautiful images were the added bonus.

So if you need photography services for any event, do not hesitate - call Lara & Kate today!

I cannot say enough how happy my husband and I are with everything that Studio Nouveau did for us. Lara and Kate were professional, flexible, understanding and invisible on the day of our wedding. Our pictures came out unbelievable, we don't even know how to pick our favorites! Every picture was beautiful in it's own way and they went above and beyond putting together a beautiful slideshow for us, capturing the fairy tale feel of the day perfectly. If anyone is on the fence about who to pick for a photographer, I say Studio Nouveau, hands down.

I hope one day we'll be able to use them again (maybe you guys will consider branching out and doing baby/ newborn pictures?!) Lara and Kate are the type of women you meet and instantly want to become friends with, that they got to spend our big day with us is an honor. Andy and I are delighted with how everything turned out and we have some tough choices ahead of us! I know that these two wonderful women will be a part of our lives for a very long time to come.

The ladies at Studio Nouveau are amazing. I cannot say this enough. From their style to their personality to their to-cute-to-be-true slideshows…they are awesome! When you see the pricing, you may think it isn’t worth it, but let me say this: when you are old and grey, what else will you have to remember your wedding except for the photos. Hire this studio. I splurged on their services and saved elsewhere. Well worth it!

Lara and Kate were so much more to my husband and I than wedding photographers. From the moment you meet them you feel their warmth, any awkward first meeting feelings melt away and they will have you laughing within seconds. Trust is so integral when you're planning something as important as your wedding and we can honestly say they were the only vendor we trusted 100000% from start to finish. They strike a perfect balance of super organized professionals and down to earth fun chicks you feel like you've known for years. Working together harmoniously, feeding off each other's humor like the longtime friends they are make you feel so comfortable in front of the camera, resulting in perfectly natural, gorgeous portraits. Their eye for the best shots and remarkable artistic talent will blow you away. They have this uncanny ability to tell our story and keep those memories fresh through photographs and that is what every bride and groom wants, right?? To this day I can't get through our pictures without tears in my eyes. These ladies have SKILLZ. Our bridal party loved them, keeping everyone laughing nonstop. Kate risked life and limb when our transportation stranded us in a park, piling into a good samaritan’s VW van with six bridesmaids, a groomsman (for safety) and a dog. If that’s not above and beyond the call of duty, I don’t know what is. We're so incredibly grateful to have connected with Lara, Kate and all the wonderful associates at Studio Nouveau. We so look forward to reconnecting with them when it's time for our family to grow and capturing all of life's beautiful moments.

Laura and Kate are the most fun to have at your wedding. If you are looking for someone to tell your story, these two are your people. They are artistic, real, and capture the moments perfectly. Our guests loved them, but more importantly, they didn't stress us out and we had full confidence in them. also unlike many photographers, they don't make you choose only 200 images, you get every image they take so you get the whole picture of the wedding... literally. Likewise, we had a hard time finding people who could accurately get a multi-cultural couple and family captured with the right light, etc. Lara and Kate were perfect and will pretty much do anything to get the shot... literally!

Very few times in life are the highest and most hopeful of expectations actually exceeded. Well, Studio Nouveau did just that with our wedding photos.

We were married on a rainy May 26, 2012, in Northern California and I’m telling you that you cannot tell it was raining in the photos. The weather took a back seat to the emotions of the day and the beauty of the surroundings in the images. Studio Nouveau captured outstanding pictures of everything: the details, our family and friends, and the moments shared between us. We couldn’t have hoped for anything more.

Studio Nouveau was the best wedding vendor to work with as far as ease of communication and professionalism. They executed like masters. Then they created the most beautiful wedding album and slide show that I have ever seen.

My husband is a professional photographer so his expectations were very, very high. Our photos are extremely special, high quality, and unique and we are so proud they are ours.

Lara and Kate were an amazingly important component of our day. We fell in love with them over our first meeting and really can't imagine the same wedding day without their smiles, their personalities, the million laughs we had with them, and their calm professionalism with all details. I felt like I could ask them anything wedding and I would trust their answer. Paul and I want to spend many more afternoons with them taking pictures or just laughing over a cocktail. We love them and recommend them with every last inch. I have already sent their name to my best friend getting married next september!
Oh yea, and the pictures! It's like we can taste the happiness that we felt that day every time we look at our photos.

They are a true dynamic duo whose wacky (I mean that in the best way) personalities allowed my husband and I to be our goofy selves in front of the camera. We feel so lucky to have such beautiful pictures that we can look back at and remember how much fun we had on our wedding day.
I can not recommend Studio Nouveau enough if you are someone who appreciates vibrant, modern, exquisitely detailed, and FUN photographs! All boring persons need not inquire.

Kate & Lara's Studio Nouveau came up on a long list of Boston wedding photographers when my husband and I started looking for someone to take photos for our wedding in September. The second I saw their website, I HAD to talk to them. They were even more wonderful than I had imagined. They were so easy to work with, they kept me on track when I got lost with the wedding planning process, and they created gorgeous photos!

During the ceremony, they didn't disrupt anything. They were incredibly professional and quiet! When we got to our reception, I had trouble with my bustle. They jumped right in and fixed it for me! They were so much fun to work with during the photo session after the ceremony. They make you feel totally at ease the entire time!

I can't imagine having any other wedding photographers. They helped make it the best day of my life!

Oh yeah, you HAVE to do the Boudoir session with them too. It was SOOO much fun!!!

Kate and Lara are some of the most fun, talented artists I've ever met. I say "artist" because they do so much more than take pictures. I was able to work with them on a few photo-shoots over the last 18 months and each one was a unique but positive experience. They are so professional, but always fun-loving. The fact that they love what they do shows and makes for a relaxed environment in which it is easy to look and feel your best. They manage to fine the most natural and, therefore, the best looking you and capture that moment.

I love their quirky, candid style as it makes for truly memorable pictures. Nothing ever feels stiff or posed, keeping you relaxed and in the moment.

At the wedding itself, they not only took photos, but pitched in with things like my dress bustle, my veil, all sorts of things that were way above and beyond the call of duty. They handled my large, diverse wedding party (include 4 children ages 5 and under) with charm, grace and fun! I would have them at any and every event I ever do in my life.

I cannot say enough good things about these two or their work. They were the only photographers I interviewed and I have absolutely no regrets at all.

From my first email correspondence to Studio Nouveau, I had a feeling. When my fiancé and I actually got to meet Lara & Kate, I knew it was meant to be. Their portfolio was amazing – and no two weddings were the same. In each different wedding album, you could see the personality of each bride and groom and the special moments they shared. We knew at that moment we had found our photographers. I won’t lie, my now husband is extremely picky when it comes to photos and I knew it would be a difficult task for any photographer to work with my divo, but Lara and Kate managed him like a pro. These ladies go to leaps and bounds to get that special shot, but are never intrusive or interrupt your special moments. We could’ve taken our couple photos with them all night – the love of what they do and fun approach put us both at ease and completely trust them. When I saw my wedding photos for the first time, thru an amazing slide show L&K made for us to share with our friends and family it brought me to tears. I was able to relive my wedding day thru amazing pictures – what more can a bride ask for…. I can’t wait to do my trash the dress shoot … and well… when the babies come… I’m thinking fabulous mommy-to-be shoot….. Studio Nouveau will be a part of our lives and future family for many years to come…. xoxo

They both have an amazing artistic eye and my photos came out exactly as I wanted and phenomenal. I have gotten several comments on them just out on my desk at work.

They were both extremely professional and unobtrusive during the entire day.

I already have my photos and my wedding was only a month ago.

I did the Love.Note.Spot which was totally worth it and it produced some of my absolute favorite photos of the night!

I just love them and you cannot go wrong hiring them for your wedding!!!

I just wanted (actually, I felt compelled) to take a few minutes to
tell everyone how absolutely AMAZING our wedding album turned out. Lisa and I both couldn't be any happier with it. We gave the parent albums to our
parents and they all fell in love with them too. None of them had
ever seen a wedding album like it. They showed their friends and they
said the same thing. Lisa brought ours to her work and all of her
coworkers said the same thing too. I think these guys are amazing at
what they do, and if we ever need professional photographers
again...although hopefully never for another wedding ;-)...we'll
definately look their way.

Thank you for everything Kate & Lara!
