BEHIND THE LENS

with clay austin

I'm a firm believer in true love, and I try my hardest to document it in its most raw and authentic form. Shooting film allows me to be completely in the moment, patiently waiting for windows of honesty and those sparks that make each couple unique. It gives me overwhelming joy to provide my clients a way to relive such a meaningful occasion for the rest of their lives.

Seeing how a photographer captures the whole wedding day can be paramount when deciding if they are a good fit for you or not. That is why I make sure my website reflects a similar representation to what my clients will receive just a few short weeks after their wedding.

I like to photograph each moment from an authentic, candid perspective and simply enjoy the day with you, whilst capturing all of the details that will make your wedding so unique and personal to you.

“Clay is unbelievably talented and can make anyone feel extremely comfortable in front of his lens. He not only captures the “formal” photos that all the parents want to have, but also captures the very special candid moments that show raw emotions. Clay’s photos are one of a kind and he has a unique gift of finding the most amazing lighting in every one of his shots.”

The Experience

client testimonials

“Clay effortlessly captures the candid, raw emotions that are so special and fleeting throughout the day, all the while making everyone feel at home in front of his lens. The images Clay created for us were beyond what we could have hoped for. He is an incredibly gifted photographer and to top it off, if Clay didn’t have his camera gear with him, he would have been mistaken as a much-loved guest, as he’s such a fun, kind, charismatic person to be around. We can’t thank you enough, Clay!”
