about working with us.

the client experience



We document your wedding in a way that tells your unique story in a beautifully honest and romantic way. 

 Your wedding day will be full of the biggest hugs, the loudest laughs, and the happiest tears, & we want you to live fully in the moment while we take a step back and bottle it all up for you!

While we definitely give direction to help create those romantic and gorgeous photos, we're always seeking out the honest moments.

The pretty details? Oh, we've got that covered. We'll photograph the heck out of your gorgeous details. They're part of your wedding day story too. 

At the end of the day, we want you to be present with your family, and celebrate like there is no tomorrow because you know we've got the rest covered.

FAQs

"Austin and Rachel are the nicest people and extremely talented!..The pictures came out STUNNING! I look at them almost every day."

the kindest words from our past clients

 Our engagement photos turned out great with a super fast turn around. Also, Rachel was really good about buttoning up final details such as timeline and important pictures that I wanted a week before the wedding. On the wedding day they arrived on time and got straight to work. During the whole day they were very professional and kind to my bridal party, family, other vendors. We ended up running early on time so they took A TON of photos of us in hot July and did not rush us. The pictures came out STUNNING! I look at them almost every day. I will forever recommend them to all future brides!

"Working with Austin & Rachel was like working with people you’d known your whole life who rocked at taking beautiful photos. "

the kindest words from our past clients

I was so happy we booked with Austin and Rachel for our wedding day. The first time we met them we fell in love with them. They’re warm and inviting, funny and you can tell they genuinely care about you and your big day. I remember them asking me things about my wedding day that I had not even thought of and thinking to myself that we would be in great hands with these guys. Wedding planning was easy with them because they were available to answer any questions I had and again asked me questions I had not even thought of. Overall, working with Austin & Rachel was like working with people you’d known your whole life who rocked at taking beautiful photos. Our experience with them was more than exceptional and I would recommend them to every single person who is considering them for their big day.
