Behind The Lens

with Yazmin Moreno, Your portrait & wedding Photographer for Love and Life

Based in Austin, Texas

Known for my candid portraiture, I love making couples laugh and sometimes cry (but in a good way!) to capture the kind of raw emotions that create the most authentic imagery. 

As an extroverted introvert, I’m irrepressibly drawn to people and their stories. Wedding days, with their hustle and bustle, spark my energy and ignite my creativity. While editing in sweet solitude, doing my part to create works of art that you can cherish forever, recharges me to do it again and again. 

Hola! I’m Yazmin.

Cultivating Connections + Building Relationships


I’ll never get over how amazing it is for me to get to capture the happiness and greatest moments of some pretty cool people up close and personal. But it’s long after the wedding when I’m invited to backyard barbecues or asked to photograph a new member of the family, that I am reminded this is why I do what I do. 

see my passion in action ➝

I graduated with a degree in photography but the most important thing I gained from college was a group of friends I can call on for a mental health check. I'm "the baby" of a Mexican-Puerto Rican family, I recently became a wife, new mom and bonus mom. I'm a traveler and lover of experiencing cultures and food.

My passion for people and their stories has been the drive behind my business. I am unapologetically terrible at maintaining a work-life balance because I love what I do.  While photography has taken over much of my life other things that bring me joy are summer BBQs with my very large family, a cocktail by the pool or planning our next vacation. And when I'm not busy taking photos or otherwise chasing after adventures in life, I enjoy having conversations that go deep - those that make up the story of who we are today. I’ve been told I have a talent at getting people to open and perhaps it’s because I enjoy discussing life’s memories and lessons both good and bad.

Getting to know...



I believe we should celebrate each other in every way because we're all just kids on this great big playground, all dealing with our own fears and insecurities. 

My focus is on capturing your story and your personality. Traditional wedding photography has a reputation of being very static and overly-posed. This is not my style. I might ask you to grab your partner's butt. I might ask you to tell them a couple of reasons you admire them. I may even ask you to dance.


THE Photographer

In 2015, I started this business with nothing but a camera, a kit lens, and a passion for people. Today, my work is powered by cold-brew coffee and the deep friendships I cultivate with my clients.
