Hi, I’m Austen, lead photographer for Austen Diamond Photography.

I’ll start with an anecdote: A three-year-old guest at a barn wedding in Vermont snatched a Fuji Instax and made portraits (including mine here) until the film was nearly gone. The joy from both he and his subjects was indelibly candid, authentic, and pure—that’s exactly what I strive for every day as a photographer.

I’m grateful and humbled that you would choose me to photograph your wedding, or any of the significant moments of your life. I want to craft original photographs that honor the unique personalities of you and your partner, as a couple and as individuals. I hope our mutual desire leads us to create the hallmark of your visual legacy and is the cherished visual inheritance you pass on to your loved ones. This isn’t just my job; it’s my true passion. I’m fascinated by the alchemy that photography does to our hearts.

Couples who see our time together as an opportunity to make lasting and impactful photographs fulfills me as an artist and craftsman. Whether the setting is one of Utah’s awe-inspiring national parks, a luxurious destination wedding, or an intimate backyard wedding, I love being given the room to be creative and spontaneous. If you’re looking for a photographer who strives to be thoughtful in producing elegant, modern wedding stories and creative portrait photography, let’s work together!

I’ll also document candid moments and raw emotion throughout each wedding and commission through my own unique filter. I think you’ll know if my style matches yours by looking through my portfolio and reading my blog. Throughout this site, I’ve curated a small selection of my favorite photos from recent commissions. Feel free to contact me to request to see an entire client gallery so you’ll know what you can expect from our time working together.

Most importantly, I hope that you reach out soon so we can make a real connection, one that leads me to being your trusted personal photographer.
