Mixing European sophistication with the still moments that leave generations in awe, I’m Esther Makau, a wedding photographer in Austin and San Antonio. I help travel-loving couples add a romantic, destination feel to their wedding events, creating a grounded, yet uplifting experience that focuses on your vision, connection and the history — your story— in the making.
“On our wedding day, it brought a tear to my eye, the way she was able to capture, so vividly, the love in our eyes, and the joy on our faces. All the photos came out beautifully! Esther is forever our photographer.”
~Stacey & Eric
I’m the kind of storyteller who is passionate about romance in the real, unprompted sense that it portrays itself. I want to get to know you and capture every essence of you and yours. I pull together elements of love and lifestyle to create portraits and wedding photos that evoke connection.
Plus, I love giving sincere compliments, filling my sessions with kind words and the resulting smiles. Together, we’ll laugh and dance until the overwhelming feeling of love encapsulates you and you find unbidden tears traveling down your face.
I’m committed to documenting real moments as they unfold, capturing the tender glances and authentic connections.
