MEET THE FOUNDERS:
ALBERTO LAMA & LAUREN RICH-LAMA
What happens when a wedding photographer and a creative-minded entrepreneur meet at an Upper West Side wine bar? Sparks fly and ideas are born, in this case leading to I do’s - we tied the knot right here in NYC (City Hall) followed by a destination wedding in Tulum - and shortly thereafter, the vision that is now Unveiled Weddings. Officially founded in 2015, Unveiled Weddings was created out of a mutual passion for storytelling, now realized through beautiful, timeless and authentic wedding photography.
As Creative Director Alberto leads the overall creative vision of Unveiled, including personally overseeing all image editing and album design as well as hand-selecting our team of talented Lead Photographers. Meanwhile as Studio Director I manage all things business-related as well as client communication, which pretty much makes me your behind-the-scenes, wedding logistics ninja for everything pre & post I do's.
Here’s a little bit more on each of us, for good measure:
ALBERTO, UNVEILED WEDDINGS PHOTOGRAPHER + CREATIVE DIRECTOR
Bringing over a decade's experience in photography with a unique eye for the unexpected, Alberto shoots with a personal approach and natural ability for putting people at ease on their special day. He is bi-lingual in English and Spanish, available for shoots in New York City, the Tri-State area, Charleston, Mexico City, Mexico's Riviera Maya and further destinations around the world. When not busy shooting, Alberto can be found working on language #3 (German), searching for the perfect taco al pastor, and exploring the globe for inspiration - where he admittedly still spends time behind the lens. Alberto currently resides on Manhattan’s Upper West Side with his wife and partner in crime, Lauren.

LAUREN RICH-LAMA, STUDIO DIRECTOR
Lauren keeps logistics running smoothly at Unveiled Weddings, making sure every last detail, special request and behind-the-scenes item is covered for the big day. A serial entrepreneur, she brings over a decade's experience in public relations, marketing & content creation for lifestyle brands and has now found her calling in the treasured world of love stories. When not busy multi-tasking, Lauren can be found fueling her wanderlust with Alberto, trying to finally become fluent in Spanish, and scouring the city for the best happy hour. Cheers.
