Caroline Studios has been shooting weddings in Austin and the surrounding areas for over 10 years. I approach weddings with a photojournalistic style; I love capturing true and authentic moments on the wedding day. I strive to make your wedding photos unique and your own. There is no formula in the way that I approach weddings since everyone is very different and I treat it as such. I also love incorporating the environment into portraits. Since many of my clients are destination clients having their wedding in Austin or elsewhere, I want to make sure that I take the opportunity to show it off.
Austin is an amazing location for destination and local weddings. I am lucky enough to have mild winters and beautiful spring & fall temperatures. While the summers are hot they are much more bearable than Houston summers since it is far less humid here. The winters in Austin can hop around in temperature from freezing to 75 degrees, so you never really know what you’re going to get! Austin has an awesome variety of venues from modern ballrooms, to victorian ballrooms, outdoor hill country sites, and barn settings. If you can dream it, it’s a good chance that Austin has it. Austin has become a huge destination wedding city due to its’ accessibility from coast to coast and its’ beauty and proximity to Dallas and Houston. This ensures that many venues book farther out than in other markets. Austin hasn’t been able to keep up with how popular it has become! This is the same case for all vendors in Austin as well. Most of my weddings are in the popular months of April, May, October, & November and book 9 to 12 months out. Some days will be significantly more popular than others because of other events going on in Austin. With the city’s popularity has brought a lot of events and activities, which is good for the city but bad for wedding planning. Austin has SXSW week, 2 ACL weekends, and Formula 1, so weekends around those events tend to become more popular. With good reason too; those dates become very difficult for any wedding guests coming from out of town since many hotels in Austin will become very expensive or not be available at all.

There are many venues that are lumped into the “Austin venue” category even though they can be up to an hour outside of town. There are venues in Lakeway, Dripping Springs, Driftwood, Bastrop, Round Rock, Salado, and even Georgetown.
