My name is Austin Gros. I was born in Louisiana, spent the majority of my life in Texas & have now made my home in Nashville, Tennessee with my wife Amanda & our beautiful children.
Working as a wedding photographer for the past fourteen years has been an incredible honor. There is a great privilege & responsibility in being selected to document one of the most important & meaningful days in the lives of two people.
Remembering back on my own wedding, the day goes by so quickly. When it's over, people are left with very few tangible elements. Photographs are such an important piece in revisiting & reliving moments, emotions & experiences.
The work that I do serves to capture the start of a big, beautiful new chapter in life. My goal is to create heirlooms that will be reminisced over & passed down from one family to the next.
Simply put, there is no better job in the world that I could ask for.
" From the beginning of the process, Austin put us at ease & made us feel so comfortable. He listened to our story & our hopes for our photos - and his vision perfectly matched what we had in mind. Our pictures came out better than we could have ever dreamed - natural, without feeling too posed. They are effortlessly “us.” We will cherish our photos for a lifetime. ”

" We decided that it was a priority to have a very specific photographer - someone whose style & portfolio matched our taste, someone professional who knew exactly what to do & someone who was willing to accommodate our ideas. Austin was just that. He was like a friend, while still being a director. He was hard working, flexible, ever-present & never underfoot. His communication was clear & helpful.

“ Austin captured our wedding as no one else could have. He becomes fully immersed in the couple’s vision & all their elements. Our wedding was full of outdoor challenges & tiny details that Austin conquered & captured magically. His pure & honest approach to photography cast a certain cleanliness over our shots that I will cherish forever. I can pick up our album, or look around our house, & experience our wedding all over again…without a detail feeling missed. ”
