Hand Heart and Crown Weddings is a wedding company run by husband-and-wife team, Austin and Christel Stuart. Based in Austin, Texas, we are totally willing and able to travel for your wedding. Our passports are current!
Austin: I am usually the one behind the camera. I have been shooting photos since high school. That was about 100 years ago! My storyteller super power is capturing your day to tell a story. Using a blend of contemporary, natural and vintage photography styles to capture the perfect moments, I want you to be able to share your gallery with friends and family and they can almost smell the flowers, and feel the sunshine!
In my spare time, I can usually be found outside. On my bike, in a kayak, playing golf, enjoying baseball games, or camping!
I shoot weddings, events, portraits, and nature. If you will stand still long enough, I can stop time.
Christel: I am usually the one in front of the camera. I have been officiating weddings since 2014. My first wedding was my cousin's...in Costa Rica... under a waterfall. Not a bad day at the office! Since 2014, I have traveled all over marrying folks!
If you are looking for someone charming, funny, and professional to be your storyteller. I'm your "guy". I want your wedding to be personal and touching. I want your guests to connect to your story. Falling in love is ugly. That is what I adore about weddings. I get to take the ugly, personal stories and make a lasting, beautiful moment out of them.
Hand Heart and Crown Weddings offers a range of elopement and wedding packages, which vary by hours of coverage. Packages include a consultation, open-communication via email phone, Skype, FaceTime, carrier pigeons... a custom wedding ceremony, and an online gallery of images.

Friendly and organized photographers
We found Austin and Renata through what seems to be an agency that books independent contractors, so we actually found our photographers through Classic Photography. We knew we wanted a package that included a videographer, and we also wanted the raw footage along with the edited videos because we are musicians and want to use the footage in some of our future music videos! We asked around a few businesses, but Classic Photographers had the most reasonable rates AND the least complicated access to the raw footage. They also sent us a list of photographers in our area (they are a business that spans the country and seem to hire contractors through their site) and look at their work, so we were able to connect with our actual photography team beforehand and were very comfortable and happy with our decision (Renata and Austin are the BEST!)Sent on 09/04/2019
