About Me

Photo: Jill Lafleur Photography 


My formal name is Austyn-Marie but you can just call me Austyn. I'm a proud New Orleanian photographer who grew up in this city with painters for parents who gifted me my first camera at a young age. Since then I've let the camera be my guide ever since. I've studied 35mm & 120mm film Photography and Fine Arts at the University of New Orleans. I've studied under a successful local wedding photographer who helped spark the love for passionately documenting each wedding's unique day.

​ My goal is to provide each couple with photographs that show emotion. I want you to be able to look back at these photographs years from now and remember what your day felt like. And for those who weren't able to be there to feel like they experienced the whole day as well.

I was lucky enough to have Austyn photograph our wedding in September. She is a true professional that cares about what you want. She anticipates your needs and was a calm presence on our day. She captured my vision and also incorporated her own to take magnificent shots that are hanging in our homes. My family adores her and think of her as family. The pictures are artful, beautiful and whimsical. They are real-life pictures and not posed or staged. Call her because you will not have to worry about anything with her at the helm.


We recently had our destination wedding on April 12th 2017 in NOLA. Having to plan a wedding from halfway across the world seemed a little daunting at first, especially finding the perfect photographer for one of the biggest days of our lives to capture it. Austyn-Marie wasrecommended by Stella Plantation, and I was so thankful they did! Not only was Austyn professional from start to finish, she was so easy to work with, and we didn't even notice her half the time snapping away during the day. There are not enough words to explain how amazing the photos turned out. My husband and I relived the day when the package arrived with the photos, (which we received in record time). The quality of the photos are outstanding, and every single guest is still talking about how she captured them at their most joyous. The photos were retouched to perfection, they were candid, natural, and had a wonderful journalistic feeling to them which was exactly (or even more so) than what we had imagined. I couldn't imagine anyone else capturing our day the way she did!


"Austyn is not only an amazing photographer she is a great person inside and out and it comes through in her photos. Her contagious fun loving spirit makes photo sessions a blast. She has done several sessions for my family from maternity, newborn, parties, weddings, and all of her photos exceed any expectations we had. Not only does she take the "regular" posed photos, she takes creative candid and intimate shots you don't notice her taking that will be some of your favorites. She is quick to get photos back to the customer and highly recommend her to everyone!!!"

I feel like every picture captured who we are as people, a couple, and a family. I already feel nostalgia for that day just seeing the photos. I am so in love. You are an artist and a magic maker. 


Aus, these pictures far exceed the wedding photographer I had the first time...he was the main guy to do anyone's photos where I come from. You blew him out of the water!
