Your wedding day should be perfect. Trust me to capture all the magic moments. Let’s talk photography.
In 2022, the average cost for a wedding in Austin was around $28,000. A small or intimate wedding would cost significantly less since the highest cost factor in weddings is typically providing for guests.
Plan to budget at least $100 per guest, but the total cost may be higher if you choose higher-end vendors.
A small wedding has between 15 and 50 guests, less than 15 guests is considered an elopement.

It’s no secret wedding days are my favorite! What makes them extra fun are beautiful details that make this photographer’s heart happy. It’s icing on the cake if the wedding is in a gorgeous venue. Leslie and Patrick’s day had all of the above and more. I can’t wait to share more of this wedding at Jacob’s Well Vineyard with you!
Leslie and Patrick were both new to Austin, TX when they first met, so exploring new areas was their way of getting to know each other well. Shortly after starting their relationship, they moved in and have been living life as a family of three. They have an adorable cat that completes the trio!
These two lovebirds got engaged while on a trip in San Francisco. As they climbed to the highest peak of the hike they were on, Patrick got down on one knee. He popped the question, and Leslie said, “yes!” It was an incredible day, and they have experienced so many special moments since then.
My favorite parts of this wedding at Jacob’s well vineyard included the stunning natural light at this wedding venue. A really sweet moment was when Leslie’s mom finally zipped her into her wedding dress. It’s a part of the day that always gets me a little emotional. I loved Leslie & Patrick’s color palette they chose! The neutrals and blacks went beautifully with the sage greens and whites. The classic tuxedos and satin bridesmaid dresses added to the luxurious feel of this wedding too!
Make sure you scroll all the way to the end of this post for a cute peek at their adorable first dance! Congratulations Leslie and Patrick! It was an honor capturing your day.
Special thanks to these amazing vendors for the day!
