Signature Style

Lauren Fryer loves San Antonio—its culture, its laid-back people, and the weddings. “The weddings here are beautiful and really awesome,” says the wedding photographer and owner of Lauren Fryer Photography. “My couples are always up for something fun and different.” And it’s that creative freedom that she loves.

But creativity she has in spades. It’s the relationships Lauren builds with her clients—and the trust therein—that allows her the freedom. “I really get to know my couples. I try to connect with them as more than just another vendor. Their wedding day is one of the most important days of their lives and I want it to be special,” Lauren says. So she works hard to make it exactly that. Whether she’s fluffing the bride’s dress or calming the couple’s nerves, she always takes time to add those personal touches that make her clients’ wedding day turn out perfectly. “It’s not just the photography. It’s the relationship.”

Of course, photography is her expertise. The photography bug bit back in middle school when Lauren shot for the school newspaper and yearbook. It remained a hobby throughout high school until she got to college, took a couple of marketing and entrepreneurship classes, and realized she wanted her own business. The San Antonio native graduated from Texas A&M University–Corpus Christi on a Saturday, moved back to Alamo City that Monday, settled into a new house, started a new job, and a week later, got married. “It was a lot,” she laughs. Two years later, she got a bonus at work that became the seed money for Lauren Fryer Photography. She bought her first camera; taught herself the craft through workshops, conferences, and online training (all of which she still devotes a significant amount of time to); met people in the industry; and shot her first wedding for free. “I learned and blossomed from there,” she says. “I owe a lot of my growth to the Professional Photographers of San Antonio. We’re a close-knit community of competitors but it’s healthy competition. We like to help each other because if we are all better then it makes the quality of photography in San Antonio better.” Besides, she adds, each photographer has a different style and there are plenty of couples to go around. “Everyone’s getting married!”

It’s Lauren’s signature style—and even more, her signature shots—that make her stand out. Her couples often become her friends, so she’s able to take what she knows about them to compose one photograph that is truly them. Whether the bride and groom are architects and Lauren frames them in front of a grand cathedral or the couple loves the river or a bride’s favorite spot is the New Braunfels bridge, Lauren takes the time to compose that one signature photo. “It’s a little bit Lauren Fryer style, a little bit the couple’s style, and they always love it.”

Lauren’s talents and business don’t stop on the wedding day, though. You can also catch her in the bedroom shooting boudoir sessions. “I’m really focusing on boudoirs,” Lauren says. “I want to continue learning and building that side of the business to empower women.” She’s certainly on her way, creating an experience where clients get pampered by a hair and makeup artist while listening to music, sipping mimosas, and having fun. “I was only a quarter of the way through my first boudoir shoot when I knew I was in love. When these women walk away feeling so great about themselves, it makes me feel amazing.”
