MEET THE FOUNDERS
You might be wondering how Unveiled Weddings came to be. Well, I'll tell you. Once upon a time a single New York City girl (me, Lauren) met a dashing wedding photographer at a wine bar on the Upper West Side. A few pours and many sparks later, the rest, they say, is history. Alberto & I got hitched at the City Clerk's Office in Manhattan in 2013, followed by an intimate destination wedding in Tulum, Mexico the following year.
Along the way we decided to join forces and merge Alberto's creative eye with my business-savvy background, met with a combined passion for storytelling, and Unveiled Weddings was born.
Now, as Principal Photographer & 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 and Cinematographers. Meanwhile as Studio Director I manage all things business-related as well as client communication, which pretty much means I'm your behind-the-scenes, wedding logistics ninja for everything pre & post I do's.
For those of you wanting a little more info on each of us, we got you:
ALBERTO LAMA, PRINCIPAL 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 the New York City area, Charleston, SC, 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 in Manhattan with his wife Lauren, who also happens to be his business partner (and partner in crime).

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.
