Let's collect memories.

The Details

What makes photography unique compared to other forms of art is the social aspect. While one could paint in seclusion for days on end, photography is all about relationship-building and developing trust with your clients to make sure they feel comfortable with the experience and the end-product.

No matter whether you feel
right at home or a bit camera shy, 

I promise you will feel relaxed and at ease with me. I pride myself on giving my clients an experience that leaves them feeling confident in themselves. 

The Experience

You get in touch with me via my contact form, and I will reply back to you within 24-36 hours! I will send you my pricing guide, example full galleries, and check that your date is available.

We’ll hop on a FaceTime or call to meet and talk! From there, we chat about life, your  wedding, and probably the latest Bachelorette gossip. We get to know each other and decide if we’re a good fit for each other! This is also a great opportunity to ask me questions; you probably haven’t been a bride or groom before, it may feel like you’re figuring things out as they come. I’ve photographed dozens of weddings and have the know-hows when it comes to planning the big day.

2 | connect

If we decide to work together (yay!), I’ll go ahead and send you my contract and invoice. The invoice is payable via credit or debit card, making it super easy to do electronically. Once that is complete, we will be booked! Woo!

Just like KP - call me, beep me, if you wanna reach me. I am here as a resource, so please use me! By being part of my wedding crew, you also have access to discounts on other vendors in town, from event rental to venues. I work with you and your wedding planner to make sure we are all on the same page.

Let’s call this our first date! It’s important for me that my couples get to know me and see how we work together. You’ll get a better understanding of my personality and the experience. Plus, you get your save-the-dates and invitation photos done.

5 | LEADING UP TO THE DAY

The big day. No need to stress today.
Just be in love and dance the night away.

Within 6-8 weeks, you will receive your wedding images. I prefer looking at them as a slideshow with a beverage of choice, taking in the whole day.

7 | delivery

Our relationship goes beyond the wedding, and I am here for you as both a friend and photographer. Hold your memories! I offer custom heirloom wedding albums for all my couples so they can have a tangible book that will stand the test of time.

FAQ

Ailin is actually simplified from Ai Lin - pronounced EYE-Lin! If you’ve been a past client, this is how you probably refer to me as! However, my family and friends have called me Rachael since birth, so please call me Rach :)

How much do you charge?

You can see all my pricing information here! Weddings start at $2100, and standard sessions start at $500.

Do you shoot both film and digital?

Yes! While digital is my primary camera, I do integrate film shots into your day so you will have those as a keepsake.

Who is your ideal client?

My ideal client is someone who knows the importance of capturing life’s moments in its true, authentic form. I’m someone who’s work is derived from building relationships, so it is important to me that we have trust with one another to create something beautiful that you will keep forever.

WHAT IS YOUR STYLE?

I asked my followers on Instagram this question, and here is what they said: timeless, happy, elegant, authentic, personal, lively, vibrant, and f*cking badass! I would agree. 

What do I do if I’m awkward in front of the camera?

Don’t worry, because I am pretty awkward myself (it’s okay to be self aware). My goal is to make sure no matter who is in front of the camera feels at home. And that starts with developing a trust and relationship between the photographer and the subject. If you are feeling stiff or don’t know what to do with your hands, I lead you through prompts and questions that help you feel like yourself, even with the paparazzi.


Do you travel for weddings?

Absolutely! I’ve traveled to Colorado, Florida, Illinois, Mexico, and Singapore for weddings. If you’re within a 3-hour driving distance from Austin, I do not charge a travel fee. If I am in Singapore (which I am twice a year!), I do not charge a travel fee. However, any additional travel will include a small travel fee to cover flights and accommodation.

How early do I need to book you?

Most couples book me between 9-12 months prior to their wedding date! However, with smaller weddings, I’ve had couples book me closer to the day, from 6 months ahead to even 2 weeks in advance!

How does payment work?

Once you’re ready to book, I will send over my contract and invoice for you to review. If it looks good to you, you will send the e-contract back signed and a 30% retainer to hold your date. This retainer can be paid via debit or credit card. For weddings, the final payment will be due 30 days prior to the wedding. For ala carte sessions, final payment will be due 7 days prior to the shoot date.
