For the poetic, quirky, & intrepid

I'm a Tennessee based photographer who specializes in High School Senior Portraits, Weddings and Elopements.

Photography has been a love of mine since middle school when I picked up my first Canon film camera. Finally, after so many years, I've decided to put this creative skill to work and take care of people with it!

I'm a Wyoming native, but have lived in Tennessee for ten years now with my hubby and our toy fox terrier Bonnie! I'm a sci-fi nerd, love to bake sourdough, and if its a nice day you'll most likely find me outside.

Fun fact: If I went on the show Alone, one of my ten items would be a gallon jug of Frank's hot sauce, because then I could eat anything! What's one thing you'd definitely take with you?

Thanks for stopping by & I hope we get the chance to work together!

I'm Austin Claire

Hey there!

Everyone has a cellphone camera so why do you need a photographer? 

When you hire me, you aren't just getting someone to snap a few pictures.

You are benefiting from the countless hours I've spent studying lighting, location, and posing. You're getting someone who knows how to shoot manually, how aperture, ISO, and shutter speed work together. You're essentially renting the best camera bodies and lenses on the market. You are getting someone who will spend hours after your session fine tuning your images with editing software to create stunning photos. 

So why hire a photographer? Because your kids are only this age for now, your high schooler only graduates once, your wedding day in all of its beauty deserves to be preserved professionally.

You can set a timer and run frantically to jump back in the picture, or you can hire me because I'd love to use my time, knowledge, and passion to take care of you & document these milestones in your life!

Is it really necessary?

My Work


Working with Austin was a complete dream! Not only did she make my family feel comfortable on the other side of the lens, but she was also completely flexible when our kids weren't the most COOPERATIVE  on a sticky TN summer day. I love how she captured a good mix of "posed" looks, but her candid shots turned out to be my favorite! She was able to capture our family heartbeat in her pictures, and they are something i'll treasure forever!


Austin did my wedding photography and truly went above and beyond. not only did the pictures turn out perfectly, but my wedding wouldn't have been the same without her there. she helped out in every other way she could! I couldn't thank her enough for all that she did. She is truly talented.


I wanted a quick session for some updated pictures of my family & austin Claire Photography was perfect for that! we brought our dog and she was so patient with getting him to sit still for the photos. the pictures turned out great! we used them for christmas cards and have several hung around our house. will definitely be booking again!


Austin was AMAzing! she had a relaxed energy and was willing to listen to my many requests. for a family of boys who don't love having their pictures taken, she had them laughing and feeling completely comfortable!


we loved working with austin. it was an impromptu shoot, but it ended up being a really nice way to showcase our engagement! we originally planned for a different location, but the weather caused some changes. Austin offered a few different options and even provided pictures to help us pick a new spot! Austin was very flexible, professional and easy to communicate with. many of the photos were candid but there were also posed ones with easy to follow prompts. we loved how they displayed our relationship & personalities!

Congratulations on your engagement! What an exciting time! I am honored to be considered as a wedding photographer to document your special day! 



Congrats on reaching this special milestone in life! I would love to capture it for you - let's make these pictures uniquely yours!
