Lauren Fair Atelier
it's time for you to HAVE the business of your dreams.
Ready for your business to change?
Nice to meet you...
Businesswoman. Mom. Photographer. Artist. Traveler. Wife. Endlessly optimistic. Lover of Chanel, a crisp glass of Prosecco, a barefoot beach town, the tawny colors of European villages, and medium format film. Will hop on a flight to anywhere, anytime. Enneagram 7 and 3, outgoing to a fault, and a friend to all.
My photography business began in college, when I bought my first DSLR camera to visit my sister studying abroad in Florence, Italy. I fell in love suddenly, all at once, and irrevocably, with the art of photography, and I've never looked back. It's a love affair that has never faltered and I am honored to share my love of this beautiful craft with other photographers.
Since then, I've been honored to shoot hundreds of beautiful couples, grace the pages of top magazines like Vogue, Harper's Bazaar, People Magazine and more, work with celebrity clientele, and be named one of the top photographers globally by BRIDES.
This is a bit about me....but really, my story is universal. This chapter? It's all about YOU and YOUR journey.
This course is for you
Lauren Fair Atelier is for you if
You've been in this industry for a few years and you KNOW you have more to give. You're not being challenged at your current level of work or weddings.
You know you're under-charging, but aren't sure how to bring in that next level of dream clientele. You're feeling stuck, burnt out, uninspired, and ready for a fresh shift in your business.
Traveling the world and shooting epic destination weddings in far-flung, beautiful locations = your dream! You want your future clients to fall in love with your work and be willing to value you.
You want to unlock the secrets behind the businesses of top photographers, planners and more. And while you're at it...you'd like to make more money and shoot less.
if any of the following are true:
"Lauren's workshops - in addition to being encouraging, highly educational, and incredibly beautiful - provided me with a space to see my own business with fresh eyes, and walk away with the confidence to increase my rates and move into serving luxury clientele. Lauren was kind and attentive to questions while intentional with her content and what I learned in the classroom time was equal parts inspiring and educational."
And I vividly remember the years and years of frustration, the steep learning curve, and the feeling of burnout that accompanied my trajectory of growth. I don't regret a single step of it. The lessons learned between $500 Craigslist weddings and celebrity, Vogue-featured weddings were precious, and I'll be pulling back the curtain and sharing them with you in Lauren Fair Atelier.
There's no shortcut to success: but there are strategies that can get you there with passion, hard work and a little bit of insider knowledge.
"Working with Lauren gave me the confidence and content to elevate my brand." - Hannah Q Photography
"I elevated my career as a luxury wedding photographer."
"I walked away [from Lauren's workshop] with the most breathtaking content that helped attract my dream clients, dream weddings, and elevate my career as a luxury wedding photographer. Since then, I've increased the value of my services and I now charge on average $15k -only booking weddings that bring me the same joy Lauren's workshop brought me. Working with Lauren gave me the confidence and content I needed to elevate my brand." — Hannah Quintana

"I'm booking higher wedding collections than I ever have."
"Lauren's insights into the wedding market truly infused a new sense of life and strategy into my business. The work and knowledge I gained from attending Lauren's workshop have contributed to my prices increasing, my brand elevating and with an increased ability to navigate the wedding market. Attending the workshop was an amazing investment in myself and a wonderful experience, on every front. I was published in BRIDES Magazine this past year and I am booking higher wedding collections than I ever have in the history of my business."
— Sienna Turecamo Photography
“The Lauren Fair Workshop was by far the BEST decision I made for not only my photography business, but also for myself. I walked away feeling like I could conquer all the DREAMS I had set for myself and I also walked away feeling so much more confident in myself. Lauren truly puts her heart and soul into her workshops leaving her attendees with an experience that you just can’t experience from anyone else in the industry. Lauren is one of the most humble, inspiring, kindest people I have ever met and she is someone you want to surround yourself with because she gives so much joy and love to everyone around her. Words can’t describe how fast my business transformed after Lauren's workshop. If you’re ready to take your business to the next level that you’ve always dreamed of, look no further.”
— Jordan Joseph Photography
