About Austin & Nicole
My name is Austin Williams & this is my wife/sidekick, Nicole.
We both met in college in Nampa, Idaho where I was studying Film.
I studied and obsessed over every beautiful film out there & eventually wanted to be a Director of Photography one day (people who setup lighting for movie scenes).
I watched, analyzed, and obsessed over every award-winning film in existence. I yearned to learn how film production studios lit every scene & thoroughly enjoyed constantly listening to great film scores.
Almost finished with film school, I purchased my very first camera.
When holding a camera in my hands for the first time, I immediately felt the need to take photos of everyone and everything.
"Can't... stop... taking... photos..."
And when I wasn't taking photos... I was learning the fundamentals of this amazing hobby.
Eat. Sleep. Take photos. Repeat.
And I haven't stopped since 2008
The time I met Nicole...
...my entire life drastically changed (in the best way possible).
I immediately fell in love with her the moment I saw her!
Nicole and I were inseparable in college & always tried to be with each other every chance we could.
"I'm pretty sure this is what love feels like... I Love you."
Realizing that love was the most profound feeling of all time, I was eager capture this powerful emotion on camera and eventually took photographs of a wedding two months later. From then on, my mission was to learn everything there was to know about weddings.
Years later, Nicole & I got married, and suddenly Nicole wanted to become a photographer too... PERFECT!
She also had this immense passion for photography, and, in fact, was the first of us to have her images go viral from a wedding at Glacier National Park. It was an incredible moment & was shared all over the world!
Together, we had the grand idea of starting AdventureWeddingPhotography.com, where we would travel to beautiful places, take photos of those who are in love, and present the final images in the highest quality we can possibly produce.
Along the way to our couples' weddings, we couldn't help but notice how majestic and beautiful the areas were, so we started capturing the scenery.
We both felt connected to nature and there was no turning back.
After building our landscape portfolio, we started AdventureArtGallery.com to showcase everything we have experienced on our adventures! We started this gallery because we want to give our friends, family, and fellow explorers the opportunity to have beautiful artwork in their home. :)
