Catalina Elopement


services & investment guide


a lil note before we dive in

My number one hope for your wedding: the two of you can be yourselves and fully present. It's easy to get caught up in the to-do lists and expectations, but this is your marriage. Your day. Your memories. And I love that you've already chosen to keep it small and elope—props to you guys.


This is a celebration of a lifetime. And my biggest desire is to document it in a way that allows you to feel completely yourselves, at ease. That way you can relive all of the same emotions as you revisit your photographs decades from now.


Marriage is flippin' awesome. Helping support and craft intentional wedding days for couples (like you) is my jam. I would be extremely honored to come alongside and help make this day exactly as you're wanting it to be!

Cheers + love,


She captures emotions, stories and the heart.

Having Austyn as our wedding photographer was straight-up one of the best decisions we made through the whole process. She is endlessly friendly, deeply interested in her clients' lives, and unbelievably talented--and all of this shows up in her work. We loved her (and her work) so much that she photographed our family a few years later, and those pictures are just as beautiful. She has the unique ability to capture a scene, but also the intangibles of her subjects--she captures emotions, stories, and the heart. I cannot recommend her highly enough.

You instantly feel comfortable around her

She is an extremely talented photographer and is tremendously easy to work with. My husband and I keep saying this - but we are so happy we found her. She went above and beyond to create stunning photos. We had an idea while shooting that things would turn out great, but when we received our photos we were blown away. For a couple of people who aren’t used to being in front of the camera, she made us feel incredibly at ease.

some answers to your questions

Can we be at cocktail hour?

This is one of my favorite requests. And my answer: A thousand times, yes. I want nothing more than for you to be available and fully present throughout your whole day.


If having portraits of the two of you, your wedding party and of your family are important to you, then we craft a timeline where those take place outside of the moments you are able to have with your people. Scheduling those before the ceremony or choosing to do a Day After Session is always available!

We think we are ______________

Insert: Un-photogenic, awkward, nervous, etc....

To put you at ease, most of my couples say this about themselves. To be honest, I probably would say the same things about me. However, when you just focus on eachother and the joy you feel... everything melts into place.


I'm excited to prove to you that you don't need to think those things about yourself anymore. Capturing people as they genuinely are is my specialty.

We don't need an engagement Session...

If you've already had engagement photos taken, we can relocate that hour and add it to your wedding day coverage or rehearsal dinner.

How do we reserve the date with you?

A signed contract and 25% of your package cost is all that is required to reserve us for your date. The remaining three payments are split up evenly, with the final payment due one month prior to your wedding date.
