Lana's Lens Photography
MEET LANA: AUSTIN-BASED PHOTOGRAPHER + STORY-TELLER
Thank you for considering me to capture the real emotions and spontaneous moments of your best day ever. Whether you're having a wedding, planning your intimate elopement, or need an engagement session, I'm here to provide the photos of your dreams! I get really invested in my clients. Providing a personable and unique experience to each of you is as equally important to me as the everlasting heirlooms I deliver to you!
THE VIDEO GUY
I am lucky to have a husband, best friend, second shooter, and videographer all in one. If you add-on a second-shooter or video, Bradley is the man! He is as extroverted as they come and ready to have a great time! Also, I am a frantic clicker (IYKYK) so Bradley is my go-to person to freak out to about technological “glitches,” which ends up in him laughing at me and resolving the issue only 30 seconds later.
HOW WE OPERATE:
We are here to make your day run as smooth as possible! If you hire us, I promise you will find us running across the venue so that we don't miss a single moment, holding and fluffing your dress, handing you water all night to ensure you stay hydrated, and blending in and joking with the wedding party all day long. My favorite thing about working with my husband is that I get to embarrass him by busting a move or two on the dance floor.
We have a 1.5 yr old Border Collie named Lily and she is our pride and joy! Find us being outdoors, in nature, chasing waterfalls and the sun. If your adventurous heart is planning on having your engagement session, elopement, or wedding somewhere near or far, you can totally count us in!
WHAT TO EXPECT
A lot of people ask me why I love what I do and here's my answer: I'm driven by passion, vulnerability, creativity, and romance. I'm not interested in staged moments; I'm interested in the hair blowing in the wind, uncontrollable laughter, tender touches, and teary-eyed moments. My documentary approach creates honest galleries that highlight the authentic connection and passion between partners and their people.
It's easy to tell someone to not be camera shy or stop feeling awkward. That's an unrealistic expectation and way easier said than done. As an observer at heart, it's my job to create the environment that allows you to take in every moment and forget about the camera.
If I've captured every exciting moment and messy detail on your big day, then I know I've succeeded at doing my job. I'm not the photographer who is going to interrupt you before having your most intimate moment to change the scene. That's just not my style.
If you're someone who's overly focused on equipment, big blinding lights, and looking perfect in every single photo, then I'll be honest we might not be the greatest fit, which is perfectly ok! My packages include a complimentary engagement or bridal session to establish a connection with each other and build mutual trust so that on your wedding day you can kick back as much as possible and trust me to document the day as it unwinds.
