THE LA EXPERIENCE
your photography journey with Lauren Alatriste
It's so incredibly important for me to understand my client's wants and needs. First things first, let's connect! I want to hear all about your style and make sure we are the perfect fit. Whether I am documenting your wedding day, an intimate event, or a photo session, it's important that we vibe. I want you to feel your most comfortable, so let's Zoom or schedule a call. If you haven't already, hit that contact button above.
Next, for my wedding clients, I highly recommend an engagement session. Let's state the obvious first: more images with your lover. This is the time to get these! After your wedding day, it will surely be a while before you get professional photos done of the two of you. Second, you totally get a sense of my direction as a creative director and how we interact together. Plus, you get a taste of what it's like to be in front of my camera without all the wedding day nerves! I love creating a relationship with my clients. Engagement sessions are such a fun way to think of imaginative concepts. Let's create something natural, fun, and beautiful together!
Let's get organized! When it comes to your wedding day or event, it's so important that everything runs smoothly on my end. Anticipating your wants and needs starts with a complete review of the day. I will personally create a photography timeline based on your expectations. From the moment we begin working together, I love to see what imagery and aesthetic inspires you. I encourage my clients to message me throughout the time we are working together, so we can build a mood board for their day. In addition to the creative moments, I want to know the VIPs of your event. In our timeline review call, we will also discuss your must have family and friends list.
The big day is (finally!) here. The day we have been talking about for months. Let us do all the work for you this day. It's your job to enjoy and my job to capture the amazing energy of your day. From the moment I arrive, to the moment I leave, it's all about creating for me and my team. At this point, I know your style and what you love. It's easy to tailor your needs with my style put on it. I work with your coordinator to stay on time throughout the day (and luckily we build in plenty of time for photos!).
And so the anticipation begins.. seeing all the content from your wedding day! Typically, around 10-15 images are sent the week following the wedding. But this is where the social media package differs. I absolutely love that my clients have the opportunity to get 50-80 images the week immediately after the wedding! These hand picked images will tell the love story of your event day from start to finish. In addition, I will personally curate a tailor-made Instagram story and reel that shows your day with a refined eye. I love giving my clients this opportunity because after the wedding day there is nothing better than seeing pieces of the story come together, with an artistic approach! The full wedding day edit takes about 6-8 weeks following the event day.
The grand finale! I always recommend purchasing prints or albums to remember your day. Each image for printing goes through a second level of retouching. This allows for the cleanest imagery possible, as your images will hang on your walls or sit on a coffee-table for years to come. It's not typically priority number one for a client to purchase prints or products in their contracts, but after your very important event, other life events get in the way! I strongly recommend adding these from the start, so you can have a timeless heirloom.

Did I just peak your interest?
Lauren is here to document all the seasons of your life. From maternity and newborn sessions to business branding images, Lauren documents your key moments in a lifestyle format. This is a great opportunity to get creative with either a cozy session in your casa or a stylish, upscale editorial session. Lauren is happy to travel for sessions!
Do you have an intimate event that you would like captured in an artistic light? Though weekend dates are limited, Lauren loves capturing the small events too! Whether it may be a civil ceremony, bridal shower, or even a birthday party, LA will capture these events in an artistic light. This isn't your average event photography coverage, but more high-end artistry with authentic moments.
Lauren specializes in weddings and elopement photography. She creates imagery from your love story that are inspiring and timeless. Although based as a Miami Wedding Photographer, Lauren also travels as a Destination Wedding Photographer to document couples around the world. Getting to know you before your event is key, as Lauren captures true emotion and authenticity. Her style is a photojournalistic approach made for the art-centric couple whom appreciate deep black and whites.
Documenter of all things love and life,
LA documents weddings, intimate events, and portrait sessions.
What type of story do you want La to capture?
Yes! I absolutely encourage destination weddings! It's a great way to spend even more quality time with your family and friends. It allows you to enjoy your wedding day more, which allows me to capture the more relaxed you. A small travel fee may apply, but there are plenty of extras included. Let's connect about your destination wedding!
Do you travel?
It's sooo important to me to capture the most authentic version of you. I take time to have conversations with my clients about what inspires them when looking at wedding photos. In addition, I highly recommend an engagement session! Not only do you get to know me better as your creative director, but you also see yourselves in front of a professional camera (for probably the first time). Portraits on a wedding day go by a lot quicker when you've already had the practice!
How do you get to know our style and how we like to be photographed?
Ask about my social media package when inquiring! If you are the kind of couple who wants a full story of your wedding day, the week immediately following your wedding, then this is for you. I love giving my clients the option to share their wedding day in a professionally curated way-- almost immediately. The full wedding gallery takes 6-8 weeks to receive.
How long does it take to receive my images?
My full-day wedding packages begin at 9 hours, as I feel this is absolutely necessary. The more time, the better! You don't want to feel rushed on your wedding day, and we want to maximize the in-between moments. After all, those are my favorite moments to capture. If you are having a more intimate affair, I also offer intimate event packages. Hit that contact button to learn more!
How many hours do you document on a wedding day?
Please contact me in order to find out more! Provide as much details as possible, so I can give you my proper pricing. I offer normal-day wedding collections, as well as intimate wedding collections. Pricing varies for portraits, depending on the type of session!
