I'm Peyton! A wedding, editorial + portrait photographer passionate about capturing honest and gorgeous photographs. After graduating from St. Edward's University in Austin I decided to establish my own business and Voilà! 1778 Photographie was created! I have a deep love for loud laughter that makes people look at you funny, adventures, pine tress, mountain air, vibrant florals, piñatas, cactus, desert landscapes, handwritten notes, surprises, romantic love stories, cats, wind-swept hair, grainy film and anything mid-century modern. Oh yes and chocolate cake (how could I almost forget that)! I adore capturing fleeting moments and delight in creating happy emotive photographs. I take a photojournalistic approach (along with an editorial vibe when the mood strikes) to documenting your unique day while taking the time to capture candid, organic moments that tell the story of your wedding celebration + the love you share.

I believe the imperfect is fantastic and authentic moments captured on camera are pure joy!

1778 was composed out of love for creating images that capture your natural beauty and illustrate your unique spirit. One of my favorite things (besides capturing awesome photos) is meeting new people and creating art that emanates joie de vivre. I endeavor to capture wonderful, unexpected, joyous moments that you will cherish and swoon over. The name 1778 was inspired by old world charm and my love of French history. The 18th century being my particular favorite to read about.

Based in Austin, Texas + Durango, Colorado. I will happily travel nationwide and across the globe for your wedding (or any) celebration!

I am incredibly blessed to do this for a living and cherish each unique individual I have the privilege to work with. Each year 1778 Photographie donates a percentage of profits to animal charities (I’m a HUGE animal lover). I’m very grateful to be able to do this (so THANK YOU THANK YOU)!
