Flashback to 2009: Austin photographer, Elissa R was using Offbeat Bride to plan her wedding. As a result, here in 2011, Elissa told us:

“I feel like I was able to have a wedding that was true to ourselves instead of some Wedding Industrial Complex concoction. I feel the same way about the weddings that I shoot now… I would rather be a part of something heartfelt and awesome and a little off-kilter, than something gorgeous but steeped in traditions that don’t matter.”

Nothing better than a wedding photographer that freaking gets it. Amma right? Wait, actually there is one thing that would make it better — a discount for clients who freaking get it. Elissa R Photography is offering BOTH.

  1. I’m half of the Royal Tenebaums couple and I can tell you that in addition to taking awesome pictures of you, Elissa is an amazing person who you will genuinely enjoy hanging out and working with. Hire her! It was one of the best wedding decisions we made.

  2. Yay! As someone who used to live in Austin it’s so great to see more Offbeat Austin photographers carrying the torch. These pictures are stunning. Go Elissa!

  3. As the photographer of that awesome photo of Elissa, getting to know her was amazing. Elissa is hilarious, down-to-earth, and totally professional. Not to mention TOTALLY nerdy. But that’s okay because that’s what makes her the best offbeat wedding photographer in Austin I know!
