Figure out what style of photo you are looking for – Light/Bright & Airy, Darker & Moody, more classic and posed, etc. Look at several photographers Instagrams and see which one aligns with your look the most. Most of them have engagement photos included in the pricing as well!
Also, this is a great time to think about a Videographer. You can typically add that service into your photographers fee, or can shop around and find some independent Videographers (Check out Parisa & Joshua, the Bird and the Bear, or ILC Films) – there are some great ones in Austin!
Nikk Nguyen Photo – Nikk loves capturing love stories; he says that his job is not a documentor, but a keeper of time. He is an Austin based photographer, but can travel if needed, and has been shooting these dreamy wedding photos for over 5 years. We love the candid shots he gets with moody lighting – it makes for the perfect photos that will last a lifetime. Check out more of his work here. Nikk’s photos are the dreamiest.

Pro Tip: Look into Photobooths! A great interactive way for some fun memories, they even have 360 degree photobooths now for some really cool shots. Check out Vannagram – an old Volkswagen photo booth bus; and Amurica – they hang outside of Cheer Up Charlies and Violet Crown Social Club.
You don’t have to use your larger photographer for things like rehearsal dinner, bridal luncheon, engagement party, etc. Shop around and see if you can find someone less expensive for the side events – check out Rick Kadets or Kathryn O’Brien. They both have gotten some amazing shots for friends recently and would be an easy pick!
