My approach to photographing weddings is simple:

It's about the two of you and what matters most.

I approach your wedding as a close trusted friend because you deserve photos that truly reflect who you are and the love the surrounds you both. My goal is to make you (and your guests) feel completely at ease and comfortable being yourselves; I pinky promise. At the end of the day, I am just as much excited about photographing your wedding as I am celebrating your marriage. Because your marriage is what really matters.


After all the toasts, twirling, and happy tears—your photos will give you the magical ability to relive every moment of the day within the pages of your wedding album and on the walls throughout your home.

Living memories, Your photos are a lasting reminder of what matters most. Living heirlooms to treasure today and share with generations to come.

You instantly feel comfortable around her

She captures moments that feel so genuine and sweet, and for a couple of people who aren’t used to being in front of the camera, she made us feel incredibly at ease.

The Process

What you can expect



Your wedding day doesn't need another stranger present, and that includes your photographer. Shoot over an inquiry and I'll give you a call so we can get to know each other more! If we both feel this is a good fit, a signed contract and retainer is the next step to reserve your date!


Engagement Session

While wedding days are my fav, engagement sessions are fun and so special. Think less posed and more adventure. You'll walk away with awesome photographs of the two of you, but also the time we spend together creates a really unique groundwork that helps your wedding day feel even more comfortable. Also, a hint—I highly recommend making a date night out of this; you'll thank me later.


Wedding day

This is when you get to fully enjoy and allow yourselves to be completely present. My job is to make sure you get to soak in every moment, not worrying about a thing. I'll take care of capturing all the joy, love and celebration. It's gonna be epic. And your gorgeous memories are gonna land in your inbox within 2 weeks.



Let's fill your walls and coffee tables with tangible moments and beauty that fill your heart so. These are some of your first family heirlooms! From wedding albums to framed prints, and even some gifts to give your parents, everything is personalized and handmade with quality and beauty in mind.

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.

All of my wedding photography packages are tailored to the needs of my couples. I care about what you want, and the things that mean the most to you. Your wedding photography doesn't need to one more box to check off the wedding planning list. I hope you're creating this day as uniquely as the two of you are. You're focusing on what really matters and most likely are making this day less of a show, and more about the heart and love you have for your people. (When will you ever have all these people in the same place again?)


I want to hear about what you're dreaming up and what you want your wedding to feel like. Send off an inquiry and we'll get the conversation started.

asked Questions

how do we feel comfortable and natural in front of the camera?

Making you feel yourselves is my number one priority. And that is why us building a connection is a game changer; it goes from hiring a stranger to be a part of all the intimate moments of your day to having a trusted friend who always has your back and makes you feel comfortable being around. Having your photo taken is very personal and requires vulnerability, and with over 15 years of experience, I know how to help gently guide you while always bringing your focus and attention back to the love you have for one another and the magic that surrounds you.

When can we expect To see our images?

Beyond helping you feel completely you in your photographs, this may be one of my favorite gifts to be able to give you: you can expect your images within two weeks.

We treasure our photos so much.

Besides the fact that our photos are gorgeous, the best thing about working with Austyn was getting to know her. She's a wonderful person with so much appreciation for beauty and life, and it completely shows in her photos. Even my bridesmaids kept saying to me, "I want to be her friend! She's so awesome." I couldn't agree more. I am so thankful that we found Austyn and I highly, highly recommend her for your wedding!
