Frequently Asked Questions:

➢ What is the best time for a beach portrait session?

The best time for a beach portrait session is either at sunrise or sunset. The sunlight at these hours create a soft ambient light that is flattering and brings out beautiful colors in the sky.

➢ How far in advance should I book a session?

Clients typically book with me a few weeks to a few months out from their session. If you're vacationing here, we want to schedule your session early in your vacation in case we need to reschedule due to inclement weather.

➢ Can I do a beach portrait session alone or with my friends?

Absolutely! These portrait sessions on the beach are great for friends, couples, or even just yourself too!

➢ Do you have a place for me to change?

Yes! I can bring a portable changing tent with my to my location shoots. Please let me know in advance if you need it on location.

"Austen was so much fun to work with, he was efficient and friendly! The process was a blast and working with his creative team was such a wonderful experience. The photos turned out better than I could've hoped for and I am so glad I chose Austen for my photoshoot! Highly recommend!" - Maelyn C.
"Always love working with Austen! He not only is extremely professional but also such a positive energy to be around and shoot with. I have worked with a handful of times throughout the year and would always do it again. He creates a freedom for the model to try new things and guide them during the shoot. Cheers!" - Alyssa C.
