Welcome to Alaura Creative

classically-inspired fine art, weddings, & more.

My name is Alaura, and I am a Chicago-based photographer with a love of great art, true stories, and old-school glamour. 

I believe in romanticizing everyday life for the joy of it. For me, that means fine teacups on a Wednesday, bouquets for no reason, and beautifying my space to make my eyes happy. I believe everyone has “main character” energy, and I delight in showcasing it!

Though 10 years of experience lends me a range of styles (actors’ headshots, product images, fashion spreads…you name it) my strength and passion lie in timeless fine art imagery with an emphasis on authenticity and nature. Think of my approach as showcasing your unique, true story in its most flattering light.

My team and I aim to provide a safe and positive environment for you to feel comfortable (and have the time of your life!) in front of the camera—be it for your wedding, business, milestone, or a self-love photo shoot. Whether we're out in beautiful Chicago or in my private studio, I want your session experience to be just as fun as the final photo delivery.

If you also love historic buildings, dramatic entrances, and the twirl of a good skirt, let’s chat. I look forward to meeting you!

“Alaura is such an incredible photographer and I'm so lucky to have had the chance to work with her for our wedding. She scoped out our location perfectly and made my husband and I feel at ease. It felt like a friend was cheering us on, and our photos are something special! I'm so grateful to have them to remember the day.”
