Larissa Cleveland Photography

San Francisco Photographer

Larissa’s fine art photography is a unique blend of photojournalism, classic portraiture and editorial style, resulting in images that are both timeless and modern in the same breath. Modern in that they evoke emotion and tell a story as a photojournalist might. Timeless in their beauty, true-to-life colour palette, and composition in congruence with an editorial look and feel.

Larissa receives continued praise for her creativity, and ability to put her clients at ease, allowing them to relax in front of the camera. Her work has been featured in top publications including Brides Magazine, Martha Stewart Weddings, Pacific Weddings, Grace Ormonde, The Knot, Brides Modern Luxury, Cosmo, Destination Weddings and Honeymoons, C Magazine, Style Me Pretty and Green Wedding Shoes, as well as The New York Times, and The Huffington Post.

Classically trained in both film and digital, Larissa received a Bachelor of Fine Art in Photography as well as a Masters in Photography from Rochester Institute of Technology in New York. She first took up the camera at age 13, and has been refining her ability to capture the world around her in an honest and artful light ever since.

Her greatest passions live in photographing people…It is a privilege to document and create joyful, vibrant, thoughtful and emotive memories for her clients.

Interview

IF I HAVE A FREE SUNDAY I WOULD SPEND IT… hiking somewhere beautiful!

MY MOST MEMORABLE TRAVEL EXPERIENCE WAS… shooting a wedding on Safari in South Africa.

THE COUNTRY I MOST WANT TO VISIT IS… oh, too hard to pick just one! New Zealand, Morocco, Japan, Sweden

WHAT I LOVE MOST ABOUT MY JOB IS… that I’m helping clients to capture a bright moment in their lives. Something they can keep with them and will lift their spirits in the dark times. An heirloom that will only gain significance for their family as time goes on. It’s truly a gift and an honor to be untrusted with documenting life’s happiest moments!

IF I DIDN’T DO THIS FOR A JOB I WOULD BE… a veterinarian!

I LOVE WHERE I LIVE BECAUSE… San Francisco is the perfect home for an artist who loves the outdoors. We have rich diverse culture, culinary delights, an amazing art scene, and breathtaking natural beauty all around

IF I COULD LIVE ANYWHERE IN THE WORLD IT WOULD BE…The South of France

MOST MEMORABLE MEAL I’VE EVER EATEN WAS… in the Kitchen at French Laundry, whilst photographing the food!

THE PETS I OWN ARE… a dog, a cat, and I’ve also ridden horses most of my life.
