AS A PERSON:
Hola! My name is Yazmin and I am a portrait and wedding photographer based in Austin, Texas and surrounding areas. I was born in Corpus Christi, but practically raised in the capital city. I graduated with a degree in photography but most importantly I have a large group of friends to share my life and Moscato with, I have 3 dogs I call my children, and I love food just as much as I love my stretchy pants. I try my best to be a girlie-girl and keep up with my nails, my eyebrows, and even the mustache my momma gave me, but I'm really just a messy-bun and popcorn kinda girl.
Like any great “pinterester”, I love trying new recipes and have many DIY projects that I'll probably never start/finish. While I'd love to say I wake up at 4:45am -- just like my sister, eager to start my workout at the gym, the truth is I love sleep and wake up at an unspeakable time in a desperate search for my glasses. I have a love for people and human connections. I believe we should celebrate each other in every way because we're all just kids on this playground we call Earth, with our own fears and insecurities.
AS A PHOTOGRAPHER:
My focus is to capture your story and personality. Traditional wedding photography has a reputation of being very static and overly-posed -- this is not my style. I enjoy working with romantic, fun and quirky people.
Weddings are stressful! -- That is exactly what SHE said. My goal is to turn busy, messy, and distracting into simple, elegant and beautiful. I put artistry in my images as opposed to just snapping pictures. That's the difference between a high-end operation and some Joe Shmoe with a fancy camera. I want you to enjoy your art piece as much as I did creating it.
OMG, You've read all that?! I love you already! I'd be honored to hear from you. Please email me even if it's just to say, "Yaz, it's octopi not octopuses."
