Life is precious to me and I value the memories and connections I make every day. This is what drives me on wedding days. I love observing the connections people share. To tell your wedding day story EXACTLY AS IT IS. Every memory matters.
I’m an award-winning luxury wedding photographer based out of Austin, Texas and Denver, Colorado. I focus on capturing genuine, candid images for joyful carefree lovers. I love to make people laugh and I enjoy life to its fullest. I also love singing along to all Taylor Swift songs!
I started my wedding photography business over 5 years ago after working as a Climate Scientist. I decided Climatology wasn't my passion, so I decided to switch to something I was passionate about. I am passionate about living life to its fullest and capturing everything that makes life beautiful. I genuinely care about capturing your story with an artful, caring approach. I strive to make everything stress-free for you by making sure you feel comfortable and cared for on your wedding day. I focus on your connection together rather than getting you to take very forced, posed photos together. I want you to look at your photos and remember the special moments that happened on your day. To me, you are like my family and I will be just as excited about your day as everyone else is. I will most likely laugh, cry, and party with you on your wedding day!

Hiring Aurelia Baca to capture our wedding day down in North Carolina was the absolute best decision we made. She was incredibly organized and thorough leading up to the day, ensuring that she understood our vision and the shot list for the day. On the day she was the most down to earth, chill, calming presence. Her and I sang along to Taylor Swift in her car heading to the first look, she felt like the ultimate hype girl but in a very calming way. She made my fiancé and I feel so comfortable throughout the day. What you need to understand is how efficient she also is, we got our sneak peak literally two days after our wedding and it contained 50+ of the most amazing wedding pictures I have ever seen in my life, WE WERE BLOWN AWAY. Merely two months later we received our whole album and again we were floored, I didn’t think the pictures could get any better, but Aurelia truly bottled our magical day up in her pictures, I just know I will continue to look through these photos for years to come. Her photos are absolutely stunning and timeless, she captures magic and we could not recommend her more highly. She is a MUST book for your wedding, engagement, or event!

“Aurelia is as wonderful a person as she is a photographer and is the first person I rave about anytime I talk about our wedding. She is organized, dedicated, exceedingly talented, fun, and a joy to be around… As someone who is extremely Type A having Aurelia take charge during the wedding day was a dream come true… I highly recommend working with Aurelia you will receive amazing photographs and get to know a very cool person at the same time.”

BOOK AURELIA! She is truly a master of her craft. I first met Aurelia years ago when she was starting her photography journey, and I knew I wanted to book her for my wedding from the moment I got engaged (I literally planned the wedding date based on her availability!). She is extremely organized and had a precise plan for photos so we could enjoy our cocktail hour. The photos came out beautifully and Aurelia was expeditious in providing us with a sneak peak of our photos!

“I was blown away by her style of photography and knew that it would be perfect for us. Aurelia has a way of making you feel like you’ve known her forever, and it makes it super easy to let loose and just be yourself in front of the camera. Her communication during the whole wedding process was superb, and she was always there for me when I had a question, needed some suggestions/recommendations,... On the day of the wedding, she was on top of everything and was able to capture all the shots we wanted and helped relieve so much of my anxiety so that I can truly enjoy the day.”
— Taylor and Adrian
“5 stars is truly not enough! Having her shoot our wedding was the best thing that could've happened to us… The day of the wedding, she was so fast, great at communicating on how to pose and her personality was the freaking bomb… her work is PHENOMENAL and BREATH TAKING. Please have Aurelia shoot your wedding/engagement pics... you will not be disappointed.”
— Myriam and Eric
“Aurelia was incredible. She has such an artist's eye for photography, so you know your photos will be beautiful (I mean just check her insta or her blog) but she also has a fantastic personality, she is a dream to work with. She is so fun, but professional when she needs to be, we only had a short time to get the golden hour photos but she herded my and my husband's entire families to get beautiful photos. Best photographer in the business in my opinion. Thanks Aurelia!!!!”
— Aura and Chris
“Aurelia was absolutely amazing and we loved having her capture our special day. Our friends and family cannot stop talking about how beautiful our pictures are. She was so accommodating to us with certain picture requests and we cannot stop looking at the photos and reliving our day. She was so fun to work with and is so talented!”
— Becca and Hunter
I fell in love with Aurelia’s style of photography on Instagram and quickly booked her for our engagements, bridals, and wedding day photos. To say I am obsessed with them is an understatement. Aurelia knows how to capture the in between moments, the small things, the candid photos. She made my husband and I feel comfortable during the shoots and gave us pointers the whole time. I am so happy we chose her as our photographer. Also extra bonus points that we both share our love for dogs and tswift. ♥️
