365 New Orleans: Austyn-Marie Captures



Austyn-Marie is a New Orleans bred local Photographer with a journalistic approach to capturing moments. She grew up with painters for parents and her father, also a photographer, handed her first camera and paint brush at a young age.

She later studied 35mm and 120mm Film Photography at UNO, then went on to study under a successful local wedding photographer until she spread my own wings. That sparked a love for not just photographing wedding but to passionately document the day as a whole experience. Since then Austyn-Marie has won The Knot’s Best of Weddings Photography in 2018, 2017 & 2016 she was awarded an International Wedding Award by WedAward, and have been featured in wedding blogs. 



1. What products and services do you offer? 

I offer wedding photography from small elopements to full multi-day weddings, family portrait sessions, and boudoir. 


2. How long have you been in business? 

This is my 5th year as a professional photographer but I’ve been photographing friends, family, and places since I can remember. 


3. How do people find you online? 

I can be found online through The Knot.com, my website AustynMarieCaptures.com, and on Instagram and Facebook as @AustynMarieCaptures


4. What is lesser known about your business that you wish more people knew? 

I try to be as transparent as possible with my style and my services, but I wish that more people knew that I offer Mardi Gras krewe photography. I don’t advertise it much but I’ve had the pleasure of photographing the Merry Antoinettes, The Sirens of New Orleans, and The Crescent City Fae, and I absolutely love it!! I love the environment, the costumes, and how much fun all the members have. 


5. Lagniappe Info. 

A fur-momma of two adorable pups, I’m currently planning my own wedding!, and when I’m not photographing weddings or events I work IT for some of the local hospitals 🙂
