Hello & Welcome to Danny Austin PHOTOGRAPHY Blog

I recently did a shoot for Kingston's first birthday. His mom called and wanted an out-of-the-box photo shoot,so I picked a location that had high grass and graffiti on the wall because I thought that it would give her the edgy look that that she asked for. She hated the location and first and didn’t want to walk in it. She began to trust me and my vision after I showed her a few of the photos while we were doing the shoot and fell in love with the idea and the location.

Even though it was King's birthday, his older brother, Prince joined in on the shoot as well!

Kendra and Tyrin met in 2012 while Kendra was managing a Finish Line and Tyrin was passing through Birmingham on a road trip to escape a storm that was brewing in his hometown of New Orleans. They exchanged numbers and a relationship blossomed. Flash forward to 2015 when Tyrin popped the question on a trip that he planned as a celebration of Kendra's hard work to earn her certification.

They got married this last June at the English Turn Golf and Country Club in New Orleans.

Earlier this year, I was asked to shoot a new product line for The Kloset, a fashion company that specializes in Greek and Fan Gear, but also has their own line of apparel. You can see some of that apparel below. You can also check our their website and shop their "Kloset Brand" and see more of my work HERE.

If you haven't figured it out by now, I love traveling to my clients. For this wedding, I got to go to Destin, Florida for Tiffany and DeCory's oceanside wedding. The ceremony took place right on the beach but the best part was the 2 day "trash the dress session". After a night of "I Do's" and celebrating, Tiffany and DeCory met me at sunrise to get the amazing shots in the water. I get super excited when my clients allow me to explore the non-traditional side of wedding photography! Craving mornings like this when it's mandatory to eat, dive, soak, rest, and REPEAT!!!!

Alonzo and Zaressa had eyes for each other while she was on the dance team and he was a member of the chorus while attending high school together. They officially met while their families were standing in line for college registration. They became friends in college, but started dating when they reconnected years later. Alonzo popped the question on a birthday lunch date and the two wed in Mobile, AL in July in a wedding fit for a king and queen!

Delonica and Chaz Engagement | New Orleans, LA

Delonica and Chaz are getting married this summer in Mobile, Alabama, but asked me to come to New Orleans where they live to shoot their engagement photos. I had a great time spending the day with these two because we became great friends during the shoot. My wife and Delonica made a great connection so the four of us just drove around the city taking pictures. It rained the entire day so we had to get creative with inside locations and snuck outside between showers for the dramatic outdoor shots. The city was decorated for Christmas and their styling was a perfect match for their personalities and the New Orleans holiday backdrop.

Nw THIS is how you style an engagement shoot! This is a very special engagement session that I did for my brother and soon to be sister-in-law. This was the very first engagement video I had ever shot. Somehow, some way, I managed to capture several video clips while we were doing their photography shoot for their engagement session. I had an immediate idea to take them outside and do several shots, and I didn’t realize that it was 21 degrees outside the day of the session. They were freezing!!! We all were freezing!!! But it was so worth it seeing a happy couple. The life of a photog!
