Toni Larsen Photography


I'm Toni and I love dogs and shoes and old things and new places and food. And wine. And telling stories with images.

I specialise in photographing people - people in love, people who are taking new and exciting steps in their journeys together, people who just want to document their time in the world. People who want to celebrate who they are and the people they adore.

I love creating a fun environment where you can relax and it will feel like we're just hanging out - I promise. 

I’m crazy happy when I’m photographing people. It makes my heart sing - I really believe this is what I was made to do.

Photography is my 2nd career. I had a corporate life before this one, and after years of having a nagging feeling that I couldn't put off any more, I quit my job to become a student again. I hold a Bachelor of Applied Visual Imaging, Majoring in Photography and since making that awesome decision, I've met and photographed the most amazing people and been a part of documenting their stories - I'm so excited to see what the future holds.

I take great pride in what I do, I value the trust that people put in me and I work hard to ensure my clients love what we create together.

A little more about me:

  • I grew up in New Zealand but now I call Los Angeles home. I travel back to NZ every year to photograph weddings and let's be honest, I'm ready and available to travel anywhere!
  • I love vintage stores and hunting for gorgeous old things. I love seeing new places and meeting new faces.
  • I love food. Like, I LOVE FOOD. I adore long dinners with friends and of course, to indulge in a little wine!
  • I'm a total sun bunny... cold weather makes me sad. Wearing more than 2 layers should never be a necessity!

If you got this far - thanks for taking to time to learn a bit more about me. I look forward to hearing from you soon! 


Special thanks to my friends Ryan Meta for creating the awesome video above, and to Emily Smith for the portrait of me and Neo.
