      WELCOME TO ALL

      Hello! My name is Austin Francis Sylvest, I’m an intimate wedding and elopement photographer based in Boulder, Colorado. I made my way to Colorado by way of Louisiana in 2018, after marrying the love of my life, Elsa.

      After picking up a camera for the first time in 2015, I’ve found that I value the emotional power and intimacy that a photograph can render without speaking a word while creating a legacy of love, and a lifetime of joy. In other words, I love photographing couples in the great outdoors and am honored to play a part in creating their visual legacy.

      In my spare time you can often find me traveling with Elsa, spending time with friends, getting up at the crack of dawn to enjoy a calm morning with a classic Colorado mountain top sunrise, and of course, taking photographs along the way.

      WHAT COUPLES ARE SAYING

      Austin was PHENOMENAL to work with! He was so comfortable behind the camera which made us feel comfortable in front of it! He gave us direction but also gave us the space to do our own thing! His photos were stunning and we got our gallery back in record time!! You won’t be disappointed if you book Francis Sylvest for any of your photography needs!

      My wife and I could not be more pleased with the way our engagement and wedding photos turned out! We never felt awkward during the photo sessions, and Francis did a great job of capturing the aesthetics and moments we most wanted. Was extremely satisfied with the professional quality of the photos and the timely manner in which we received them. Would recommend to anyone wanting professional quality work. We got more than our money's worth, and will definitely use Francis for our future photography needs!

      We hired Francis for a very last minute elopement in Rocky Mountain National Park. We didn't really know exactly what we wanted or where we wanted to be, but Francis was full of really helpful suggestions. We went to the places he recommended and our pictures turned out gorgeous. He was super friendly, helpful, and on top of things. We will definitely use him again if we're ever back in Colorado!

      We recently hired Francis to shoot my engagement and family gathering afterward. He did an incredible job of capturing the essence of the moment during the engagement and was extremely personable and interactive during the event. We received photographs from the engagement much sooner than we expected and they were extremely easy to access. His rate was very affordable and competitive. We will definitely be requesting his services for personal photography sessions again in the future!

      A LITTLE ABOUT THE PHOTOGRAPHS I TAKE

      I take photographs because I want to remember, reflect, and share. One of my fondest memories of looking at photographs came from the legacy that my grandparents lived. We would always flip through their photo books, as they told us the story of each photograph, the places they had been, and the people they had met. A true life of love and adventure.

      To me, photographs create a visual legacy that can live on well past our time, and invoke memories of the bigger picture of life, and I’d love to share that journey and experience with you.
