Working with Bryan and his team at The Bird and The Bear for our wedding photography and videography was an amazing choice!!! The team you choose to document your wedding is such an important and personal choice as they will produce pictures an...
d videos you will look back on for years to come, and because the team is there for such intimate moments. We did an engagement photoshoot with Bryan before our wedding which was a great choice as it meant we got to meet him in advance, and in a sense practice for the "big day." On our wedding day Bryan and his team were calm, flexible, and so helpful. I decided in the moment that I wanted to do a first look with my Dad, and The Bird and The Bear team were flexible and accommodating, and now those are some of my favorite photos! During our portrait photos the team gave excellent directions and guidance.
In the end, the photos The Bird & The Bear produced were breathtaking, fun, and far exceed our expectations! Also, we were SO glad we did videography with this team -- there is something so special about having footage from the day, and the video captures the emotion of the day perfectly, and brings all of the emotion back. We will cherish the photos and video from The Bird and The Bear team for decades to come!

The Bird and the Bear were one of the first vendors we booked as soon as we got engaged in 2019 and we’re so happy we did!! I had searched around for other Austin wedding photographers but something about their style really stood out to me. Fas...
t forward two and half years later and we were finally able to have our wedding and Bryan and his team absolutely killed it!! We had Bryan and Mercedes as our photographers and Jorge, Nick and Justin as our videographers. They were all so fun to work with and they genuinely helped make our wedding day so special. They were energetic, professional and the final product was just so so amazing. We got around 45 “sneak-peaks” the day after our wedding which was an added bonus! We are absolutely in love with all our pictures and highlight video. My husband and I normally hate taking pictures but Bryan and his team made it so easy and effortless. We HIGHLY recommend the Bird and the Bear to anyone and everyone!!! Thanks again Bryan - we are forever grateful!!!

Caryn's direction and the poses she put me in made me look like the bride I dreamed I would look like. Every person I've shown, even those who weren't at the wedding has been blown away. I couldn't recommend them more highly.

wedding communication, Bryan has been extremely professional, reliable, and so easy to work with! In fact, he and his team were able to provide us with AMAZING edited sneak-peek photos THE DAY AFTER OUR WEDDING! Our initial wedding date was postponed from April 19th to October 5th of this year due to the pandemic, and Bryan was able to accommodate our changes without any extra charges or re-negotiating our initial contract. Nick and I were anxious about our initial photoshoot but Bryan made things so organic and fluid, we had a great time with our photoshoot and the pictures turned out so much better than we would’ve imagined! We asked Bryan pretty late in the game if there was any way he’d be able to live-stream our ceremony for the family and friends who weren’t able to make it, and he was able to accommodate that without any problems. Bryan, Caryn, Jorge, and Jody were able to capture the most intimate and magical details of our special day without being intrusive at all, and for that we’re extremely grateful and we ABSOLUTELY recommend them! Thanks so much for your hard work and dedication Bryan, we’re so grateful to be able to have you and your team as a part of our big day!

while being a fun and calming presence. From the beginning, Bryan was accommodating and willing to work with me to create a photography package that fit our unique needs and timeline (we had a Sunday brunch wedding!). My husband and I are both a bit camera shy, but Bryan made our engagement photos so much fun and he really captured our relationship and personality. That also carried through to the wedding. Bryan and his team captured every detail, every smile and every tear, while not being at all disruptive to the festivities of the day. They have perfected the balance of beautiful and posed wedding portraits with the fun, intimate and natural moments throughout the day. In addition, the turnaround time for receiving both engagement and wedding photos was incredible! My friends were commenting on how quickly we were able to receive them (and how lucky we were for that!). We have extended family overseas that was unable to attend the wedding, but seeing the photos brought them to tears and really made them feel a part of the day. I cannot recommend The Bird & The Bear enough. Thank you, Bryan!

were also really fun and comfortable to work with, which I think shows in your photos.

Any editing done looks very natural and brings out the best in the photos. They did a FANTASTIC job capturing important moments, and the photos were very candid which brought back all sorts of memories from that day. The wedding day goes by so quickly and is such a blur, it can be hard to remember every moment, but Bryan and his team captured it perfectly and looking at our pictures for the first time was so fun!
