Oh hey! Fancy seeing you here!
I'm Austyn Elizabeth
A little rundown on who I am...
I'm a very broken person who constantly wants to remind people that there is beauty in the really dark spots.
I will work the rest of my life to make my loved ones feel safe, seen and healthy.
I love talking to strangers at the checkout counter.
I thrive on sunshine & sharing the world with others. Specifically, being able to share some of our personal favorite places and meals with others brings me so much joy.
I want people to feel seen and valued.
I'm someone who wants to be able to always find space & inspiration in nothing.
I prefer not wearing shoes.
Grateful you're here.
I hope you stay around and we get a chance to connect.
I'd rather be
at the beach
making others feel seen
how to surf
drink of choice
The back story
Over 15 years capturing couples and the families who love them, one well-earned photography degree, and an unlimited amount of positivity set the tone for our experience together to be lovely and as comfortable as possible.
A knack for bringing out your best and quietly sharing support when needed, photography is not only a passion but a natural extension of who I am and what's most important—ensuring your magical moments transform into timeless memories.
Thanks to adventures across the other side of the world (and here on California's beautiful Central Coast!), I'm constantly inspired by fresh light and creative desire; fascinated by humans and all that brings us together. The way we feel at home with a certain person, the way we vow our lives to theirs, and the way we receive and show love.
I create imagery that shares who you truly are in the moments you want to remember.
A few more things you should know...
THis is my Sexy beast of a husband.
He likes physics jokes and long drives on the beach. He's a dream boat and has a passion for all things aviation.
This is Brian.
THis is MY lil clan.
Brian and I were babies when we got married and had kids much sooner than we had planned (plans?! Who can really rely on those anyways?! They tend to go out the window all the time - but I'm so stinkin' grateful for it. Especially when it comes to these two).
Liam & Emery
I live on a compound.
It sounds a little insane, "compound" is not my favorite word, but here's a brief story. Not that long ago, we went in on a property with my parents + brother's family—it's a little hill top overlooking the Arroyo Grande Valley. If we're not at the beach or venturing along the coast, you'll find us here, raising chickens, a goat and sheep, and working on making a double wide feel like the most beautiful homestead imaginable.
You should come visit sometime.
I share a lot about our life
In the goal of always finding the good, even in the ups and downs of life — I share a lot of our stories here on Instagram. I'm pretty transparent and love the community there. Would love to connect with you over there!
