Our photography team for The Wedding University is pretty awesome. I'm going to start with Geoff and Lara White, another dynamic husband and wife team that has captured the hearts of many couples with their amazing photos. They will be talking about the different styles of photography out there, what photojournalism REALLY means, and what couples should truly look for when seeking their perfect wedding photographer.
Here is their story...
Geoff White has established himself as one of the premiere wedding photographers of the Bay Area, employing a style that combines the crisp, contemporary elements of photojournalism with a lovely, perceptive artistry.
Geoff fell in love with photography when he got his first camera at age ten. Photography remained a hobby while Geoff and a former classmate decided to start a business in
To learn the craft, Geoff apprenticed himself to a professional photographer (who would later join the Geoff White team). At the same time, he indulged his love of cutting edge technology by being an early adopter of digital photography, which allows him speed and tremendous post-production flexibility. Ultimately, Geoff is distinguished for his combination of technical prowess and artistic vision. With his wife Lara, who shares his business acumen and meticulous attention to detail, Geoff has grown Geoff White Photography into a unique Bay Area brand, where a deft understanding of cutting edge technology meets a detailed and visionary eye for design.
Geoff comes highly recommended by his clients as well as a variety of professionals. His work has been published in Wedding Bells, Professional Photographer, Wedding Guide, American Libraries, and a Destination Weddings book. TITLED?

Her sense of professionalism and her dedication to exceptional customer service round out the artistic excellence that Geoff White Photography has come to be known for, making her a natural fit as a business partner for Geoff. With her planning sensibility and solid understanding of the composition and flow of the wedding day, Lara is directing the game plan and insuring full coverage, leaving the photographer free to focus on the artistic end.
Lara’s not all business, though, and she’s always had a passion for weddings in particular. Growing up in an artistic household (with a dancer mom and a wedding photographer dad), she was always intrigued by being in a house where the walls were covered by strangers’ wedding photos. Self-described as the little girl who kept a detailed notebook of her dream wedding, Lara’s life took a funny turn when she and then-boyfriend Geoff were traveling in his native
