Austin Texas Wedding Photography & Puerto Rico Wedding Photography

After graduating with honors from Texas State University with a degree in Fine Art Photography, I have continued my love for photography by providing portrait and wedding photography services. Photography allows me as an artist to take the time to get to know the subjects of my photographs. In this way, I can capture their personalities behind the lens and define them in an artistic context. Let me transform my love of photography into a useful service for you and your family. I offer a variety of different portrait and wedding services. I am currently focused on Austin Texas Wedding Photography and Puerto Rico Wedding Photography.

Wedding Photography


I specialize in capturing and preserving the events of your wedding ceremony, reception and all the wonderful moments in between. My goal is to create photographs that capture the emotions on your special day, emphasizing the romance between the bride and groom. I use unique compositions and creative lighting to accentuate candid moments, personalizing each shot. Every wedding is different and I take this into consideration when preparing for your big day. I offer full wedding day coverage with customizable package options to best fit your needs. Austin Texas wedding photography | Puerto Rico wedding photography

Portrait Photography


A one hour photo shoot at a location of your choice. I offer individual, family, engagement, bridal, baby, and small group portraits. My goal is to transform your unique personality into a photograph that accurately describes you. I prefer environmental portraiture because people are generally most comfortable in a familiar environment which allows their true personality to emerge. Environmental portraits are unique in that they allow the background and composition of the photograph to help tell your story. I offer a variety of portrait photography services, such as bridal portraits, engagement portraits, individual portraits, and family portraits.

Locations and Destination Weddings


Destination weddings are often unique and transcend expectations of the traditional wedding story. While my primary focus is Austin Texas wedding photography and Puerto Rico wedding photography, I can accommodate any destination wedding. I love to travel and will gladly meet you at any destination to provide my wedding photography service. I am most familiar with Texas Hill Country wedding photography, Houston Texas wedding photography, San Antonio Texas wedding photography, Rincon Puerto Rico wedding photography, San Juan Puerto Rico wedding photography, and Culebra Puerto Rico wedding photography. Contact me for information about locations and destination weddings

Photography Equipment


I use professional grade Nikon equipment to ensure your photographs are of the highest quality. I am constantly investing in new equipment to stay up to date with technology and I carry backup equipment to each session. During a ceremony or quiet moments, I will not use flash (unless requested) as I do not want to be a distraction. Learn more about me, Lauren McLaughlin and my techniques.



I love getting feed back from clients so I can continue to grow as a photographer. Read some of my testimonials to see what other clients are saying about me and my work.

Fine Art Photography


This is one of my favorite styles of shooting. Light has a beautiful way of painting a scene and is a great way to creatively capture special moments. Fine art photographs are dramatic and often highlight a broad spectrum of emotion. I bring this style to my wedding and portrait photography with unique compositions and playful lighting.
