“Austen did an incredible job taking photos at our destination wedding in Utah. He’s so creative and invested in taking unique/personal photos; I feel like he really captured OUR wedding, in addition to getting standard wedding shots. In particular, he stayed late after the reception was over to take some incredible photos of us in our gorgeous setting. (I’d post the picture in this review if I could!) I really love his talent for capturing the scenery and ambiance of the day! On top of everything, Austen is both professional and very fun to be around, which means there’s none of that usual awkwardness of posing for a photographer. I’d give him 6 stars if I could.”

“Austen did an outstanding job with our wedding photos! He totally captured the beauty and magic of our most special day. The entire album is beautiful, creative, unique, and amazing. Austen was so professional and unobtrusive at the wedding and was an absolute delight to have around. We will forever cherish our photos and give our highest recommendation for Austen’s photography.”

“Austen Diamond Photography did our first-ever family photos this autumn, and it was a wonderful experience! Austen was flexible, kind, and patient with our toddler, and the end product was more beautiful than we could have imagined. After several years’ worth of fuzzy selfies, we’re so delighted to have photos worthy of framing. We’re hoping to make it an annual thing!”

“Our experience with Austen was great. My husband and I weren’t sure what to expect, since neither of us had ever really been in a photo shoot before, but he put us at ease immediately. He is funny, friendly, and comfortable to be with, and he is also professional and deeply invested in his work. He was on time and completely focused throughout our session, while also managing be laid back and relaxed. We wanted unique pregnancy photos which would capture our personalities and our love of the outdoors, but we didn’t have any clear ideas about how or where we wanted to pose. Austen asked for our feedback throughout the entire process, and he suggested ideas when we weren’t sure what we wanted. Ultimately, the pictures he took not only record a particularly important moment in time, but they also seem like a window into who we are as a couple, and what we were feeling just before we launched into parenthood. I loved his personalized approach, and the pictures we ended up with still make me misty-eyed when I look at them with my son. I would love to work with him again. I didn’t expect to have so much fun during a photo shoot, but the entire experience was a blast. I cannot recommend him highly enough, and my husband feels the same way.”
