After years immersed in the art world - acquiring her Bachelor of Fine Arts, rubbing shoulders with the crème de la crème of NYC fashion photographers, and even dancing through a European Master's in art direction - Audra found her true calling. "I came full circle and landed right back behind my camera, exactly where I belong," she confided.

For over a decade, she's been at the heart of weddings, capturing them in a style that's uniquely her own. "A mix of fine art film, editorial/fashion flair, and a photojournalistic approach," as she aptly describes.

Yes, her tools of the trade include elite equipment like the Contax 645 medium format film cameras, but it’s her perspective that sets her apart. Audra's photographs aren't transient fashion statements. They're timeless heirlooms. "Unlike the beautiful glossy fashion photographs of this season’s trends, these images are never last season, never out of date, but they live on forever," she says with pride.

The Magic of Connection

And if you're wondering about the secret sauce in her work, it's the connection. "What I found in photographing weddings that simply fills my soul, is the fact that by connecting with my clients, I’m able to create visual memories of their unique stories," Audra reveals. This connection has led her to capture weddings across the globe, including Parisian romance and sun-kissed ceremonies on the French Riviera.

In the realm of logistics, Audra is quite selective, focusing on "no more than 15 weddings per year," ensuring that each couple gets her undivided attention and artistry.

In conclusion, Audra Wrisley isn’t just a photographer. She’s a maestro in the art of visual storytelling. If her narrative has piqued your interest, her photographs are bound to capture your heart.
