Austin elopement and Microwedding Photography

First off, congratulations! You are probably a bit overwhelmed at this point. Planning a wedding is a big deal. We understand the stress you are feeling, especially with COVID restrictions on venues and restaurants. As a result of these COVID-19 restrictions, many couples have had to revisit their original plans and rescheduled their wedding dates.

For couples embracing an alternative wedding style, some brides and grooms have chosen to forgo the large wedding entirely, instead choosing an elopement or a microwedding. But others have opted for a happy medium: an elopement on their original date and a larger celebration scheduled for a later time. We can put together a custom package for every possibility. 

We have considerable experience as Austin elopement photographers and regularly photograph intimate microweddings in the Texas Hill Country each year. It is our goal to photograph the elopement you envision. We capture those special moments that last a lifetime.

There are many benefits to choosing an Austin microwedding, not just a more modest budget. Having a shorter guest list means you get to spend more time with your guests, and that’s an opportunity for us to capture your interactions beautifully. More intimate Hill Country weddings mean a chance to opt for more non-traditional details and events. How about a dress in a unique color? Perhaps have adorable beer burros to entertain your guests during cocktail hour? Or maybe forgo a traditional reception and include an inflatable obstacle course instead? Don’t miss out on a chance to put on your creative thinking caps and come up with fun ways to spend your wedding day with your closest family and friends. We’ll be there to help you remember it all with beautiful, candid photography.

What Our Clients are Saying

Every soon-to-be bride I speak with, I tell them that finding a photographer for your wedding is THE hardest thing. There are SO many photographers to choose from so I had tasked my mom with helping me find one… she picked Mercedes Morgan Photography and we couldn’t be more happy with her selection. They photographed our engagement shoot and our wedding day. They were AMAZING at suggesting locations for our engagement session that matched the style I was looking for. We loved our engagement photos and am still in awe over our wedding photos. They sure know what they’re doing. Not only were the photos stunning, Mercedes and Jesse are fun to be around and easily share in the joy that is happening during your wedding day (which makes posing for pictures all day MUCH easier). We’ve already told Mercedes and Jesse that we want them to capture every next step in our lives… these photos are going to be cherished for our lifetime, our children’s and many more.

– Abby and Robert’s Wedding Driftwood, Texas

Mercedes and Jesse were wonderful to work with and I’m so glad we chose them for our wedding. They really took the time to get to know us and was so sweet and responsive during the process. I didn’t know what to expect but I let them know what I was looking for and they delivered above and beyond. They are extremely talented and have an eye for light. I was absolutely blown away by the pictures and have received so many compliments from our family and friends. They took our engagements photos as well and made us feel so relaxed and comfortable throughout the shoot. You won’t regret choosing Mercedes Morgan Photography for your big day, she is amazing!!

– Helen and Wes’ The Creek Haus Austin wedding

Choosing a photographer is probably the #1 important aspect of a wedding. You only have one chance to capture it, one chance only! After texting several photographers, it seemed Mercedes Morgan Photography was #1 in customer service and very prompt & courteous! I enjoyed our small talk and humorous conversation in less than 30 minutes. I believe having a smooth conversation was one good part of choosing them, but also their images speak for themselves. Some of our images were candid shots and they captured them amazingly! You can catch the feelings through those shots and I love that! She and Jesse did amazing! Thank you guys!
