There’s a lot you could worry about on a wedding day. The weather, family drama, saying your vows in front of an audience, whether you’re going to be distracted by worrying too much. Not that I am a totally guilty as charged of all of the above or anything. Which is why there’s one phrase people say about their vendors that is music to my ears: “We didn’t have to worry at all.”
And that is exactly what couples say about working with Austin, Texas–based (but traveling everywhere) Diana Ascarrunz Photography. Beyond just being ridiculously talented at capturing romantic portraits and candid laugh-out-loud moments (this wedding slays me with its combo of timeless elegance and cheeks-hurt-from-grinning-ness), Diana is someone who makes it possible to just not have to worry about how your photography is going to turn out. Because, spoiler alert, it’s going to turn out this good…
As a person and a photographer, Diana is unabashedly feminist, committed to being inclusive and representing diversity, and equally at home charming your grandma in Spanish (her parents are Bolivian) and talking pop culture with your friends from college (favorite podcast of the moment: Still Processing). Her clients say:
Diana is PHENOMENAL. Five stars doesn’t adequately capture her exceptional qualities as an artist and human. She was one of the best decisions we made about our wedding. She knows exactly how to capture your chemistry as a couple and the magic/spirit of your wedding. Diana’s down-to-earth, relaxed approach made us feel comfortable, and we could see this reflected in our photos. She is a consummate professional, too. We never worried once about her reliability or skill—she was always there and several steps ahead of us. As an LGBTQ couple, we wanted a photographer who valued diversity and social justice. We found that in Diana! She is a gem and has given us such a gift through her art.—Delilah Dylan
And when it comes to skill, Diana is the kind of photographer that other photographers hire, because she’s that good:
Diana is the best! As a photographer myself, I was very worried about who would take MY wedding photos. Thankfully I found Diana. Her calm personality is a breath of fresh air. I was 100% confident in her work, and it was such a relief to not have to worry about her capturing our day the way I envisioned it. I loved the vast selection she gave us in our gallery—especially the intimate special moments of our family that I will forever treasure.
P.S. As a Latinx couple it was also very important for us to have someone who photographs culturally diverse weddings. I can’t say enough about how great she was with our family.—Cynthia Zubia
Diana is also one of those people for whom being endlessly helpful comes as automatically as breathing. Her website is chock full of useful tips on everything from how to swing a short engagement to how to plan a vegan wedding, and she’s even got your back with her personal favorite fellow vendors in Austin and beyond.
Diana Asacarrunz’s rates start at $3,000 for up to 8 hours of coverage and a free engagement session, and travel to anywhere outside Central Texas is a flat rate of $600. So no matter where you are, you can have photos as jaw dropping and heartwarming as these, without having to spend a single second worrying about how they’ll turn out.
Because spoiler alert: they’re gonna turn out real good.
