Hello there.
I'm Aurelia Baca.

I’m an award-winning wedding and elopement 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 don’t take life too seriously. I also love singing along to musicals and Taylor Swift songs!

I started my wedding photography business years ago after working unhappily as a Climate Scientist for years. Wedding Photography is not just a job to me. It's a huge part of my life. I genuinely care about every single client I work with and capturing their story with an artful, caring approach. I strive to make everything stress-free for my couples and ensure they feel comfortable and cared for on their wedding day. I focus on my client’s connection together rather than getting couples 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. I genuinely care about my couple’s stories and what makes them unique. To me, my clients 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!

I’m an enneagram 1 and super Virgo
I have about 50 house plants
I love to chat about true crime
I am a dog mom to a crazy aussie
I’m still mad about the GoT ending
I have a masters in atmospheric sciences
On repeat: The Office and Parks and Rec


“WOW! So we had Aurelia for our engagement shoot and as our wedding photographer and we loved her both times. Aurelia is a really fun person who remembers to keep you as her focus on a day as busy as your wedding. She took such amazing shots and we are so glad that we will have these images for the rest of our lives. She will sometimes make you do quirky things that might not make sense at first, but the end results always look so good!! She is a great photographer and even greater person! Would highly recommend to anyone who needs a wedding photographer!!”

— Amber and Jordan

“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.”

— Alexandra and Matt

“Let me say, she blew my expectations out of the water. Aurelia has a magical way of making you laugh and just feel so comfortable around her and this magic transfers through to her pictures. All her pictures capture the true raw love and joy that my husband and I share together. On the day of the wedding, she was my rock!”

— Heather Kimmel

“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

“Stumbled upon Aurelia on the knot and as soon as I saw her photos on Instagram, I knew we had to have her for our Austin, TX wedding. She went above and beyond for us the day of our wedding, and knew exactly what I had envisioned wanting in my photos and made sure to nail everything the day of! I can’t thank this girl enough! Aurelia, you are a rockstar! You will not be sorry once you get your photos in hand either, I can’t even pick my favorites because everything is completely perfection!! Thank you so much Aurelia, Dan and I have classic, timeless, photos to last a lifetime!”
