I'm Austin Francis Sylvest

A husband, friend, destination wedding photographer and cinematographer

Connection Always Matters The Most.

I’m a wedding cinematographer and photographer based in Boulder, Colorado but travel extensively to Iceland and New Zealand. I specialize in elopements and small, intimate weddings for couples who want to share an intentional experience with their closest loved ones.

Most days, you’ll find me spending time with my wife, Elsa. Others, I’m sharing meaningful conversations over coffee or beer with friends, hitting the slopes or trails, or scouring google maps for my next wedding or getaway.

To me, connection matters most. Landscapes leave me in awe,

but it’s loved ones that fill that space and give meaning to these places.

It All Starts With Everyday Moments.

Moments where for a sliver of time,

the right light, would breathe life

into the ordinary, the mundane.

The Moments,

The Truth,

Is we overlook these insignificant moments every day. But the truth is, they become the triumphs of our journeys, substantial moments overshadowed in the business of life. It’s not until we cut through the noise do we expose the work of art that’s been there all along. Your story is already there, and I want to help you bring it to light.

Where for a sliver of time, the right light would breathe life into the ordinary, the mundane. Something as simple as a plant cascading over a table, veins and new leaflets exposed in the sun, or capturing a photo of loved ones exchanging laughter and the subtle clasping of their hands together that signifies their connection.

Your Journey Is A sculpture

Music, Cinema, art. All of these mediums shape the way I view film. But, sculpture best captures my approach. Like a work of art unveiled from a single block of stone, your story already exists. It’s just a matter of trimming away the excess and getting to the core of what brought you both together.

Specializing In:

Iceland, New Zealand & Colorado

The goal isn’t to create a trendy narrative or portray you in a way that misrepresents you. Instead, I want to understand your journey and what you’re looking for, so we can capture the intricate details that no one else sees and bring them to the surface through film. Those moments of shadows, lights, and everything in between, those details already exist; they are yours, and they give life to your masterpiece.

Film, even more so than photography, allows you to preserve some of your most meaningful moments, creating a cinematic legacy that you can revisit and share for generations to come.

I'm Here To Understand Your Journey and What You’re Looking For

From your first contact, through your wedding day, I'm going to look after you.
