When you’re in the middle of planning the biggest day of your life, the search for the perfect wedding photographer can feel like a lot of pressure. You want a photographer who knows how to capture not only the events, but the feelings - those moments that only happen once in a lifetime. An exceptional, creative photographer who you can trust to put you and everyone else at ease on your wedding day.
And so you scroll through endless photos and websites, searching for someone who just feels right.
Well, I’m very glad you’re here. I’m Donny, and I’m an Austin, Texas-based wedding photographer who specializes in wedding photography from the heart.
Wedding photography is my sole focus and my passion. My role is to capture both the biggest events and the quietest moments of your big day .
I believe that powerful one-of-a-kind wedding photos are less about cliche poses we’ve all seen before, and more about capturing the mood of your day, who you are, and how you feel about each other.
For years to come, you’ll look at every photo and remember exactly what was happening in that moment as you relive your favorite day all over again.
I spent many years as a hobbyist photographer, working with everything from fine art photography, to mobile photography, to portraiture. As I moved through different types of photography, I was always looking to create work full of feelings that were real and truly meaningful.
Then in 2014 I was asked if I'd be interested in shooting a wedding. The chance to work with couples in love and to capture memories that would be in their family for generations resonated with me immediately. I knew I’d found my specialty and I’ve never looked back.
To create our connection, all of my wedding packages also include an engagement session. I promise you’ll have fun as we capture the excitement of your engagement - I’ve learned over many, many photoshoots how to put even the most camera-shy couples at ease. I specialize in making sure you’re reacting to each other, not just to me (although I may crack a joke or two!).
You’re my kinda couple if you believe that:
- Real and in the moment is better than perfect and posed.
- Details are great but emotion is better.
- Connection happens when trust is in abundance.
- Where there is laughter there is light.
- Your friends & family come second only to your love.
Want to know a little more about me?
I was born and raised in San Antonio, TX.
My favorite book is East of Eden.
My favorite band is The National.
I can’t live without ice cream, my family (3 kids + my beautiful better half, Becky), travel, and football - though not necessarily in that order.
Something else you should know about me: I’m a true people-person. In fact, I’m known for hitting it off with everyone on the big day! My goal is to make life easier for everyone on your wedding day, from you and your beloved to all your friends and family.
Some of my very favorite feedback I often receive is that after working with me, my clients feel as though they’ve gained a new friend. And I absolutely feel the same way.
