My Values

Photography is sacred & I intend to keep it that way.

I have never been a religious person. But I believe photography is sacred. In
those moments of being behind the lens, you make a vulnerable connection with
the person, people, or landscape on the other side. And it is a sacred connection.
Who we are as people shapes that connection. This is something I take seriously. I am a cisman and I know that shapes the considerations many take when
deciding if am the person to take photos of them especially with intimate
portraiture. Many people especially women and folks in the LGBTQ+ community
have justifiable reasons for being hesitant when working with men
photographers. Photography is sacred and intend to keep it that way.

Hey there!
I'm Anthony .

Photographer, Husband, Dad, Failed Rockstar, and Total Goofball

Hey there. I’m Anthony Gauna (he/him/they). When I was younger, I was hang-banging musician that came close to getting signed. After my band broke up, I picked up a camera in 2010 and LITERALLY learned how to use it by photographing bands while in mosh pits at dark dive bars. In 2012, I was fired from a data-entry job and took the risk of doing photography as my full-time career. Since then, I've photographed hundreds of weddings and people. 

I specialize in weddings, couples, and boudoir photography. I'm obsessed with authenticity and my focus is to document everyone as they are. I'm also a husband and dad. I'm an ambivert (a person whose personality has a balance of extrovert and introvert features). When I’m not busy working on my business you’ll find me in my cozy apartment with my wife Amanda, our son Ethan, and our cat Nermal. In my free time I enjoy playing guitar, listening to loud rock music, going on walks, sipping on Lone Star beer, dad jokes, and laughing a lot.




Amanda

She's waaaaaay smarter than me. She's got a fuckin' PHD. She's a doctor of sociology. She also loves naps, reading, trash TV, and stitching.

The Son

Ethan

He loves watching Bob's Burgers or SNL, playing Minecraft or Fortnite, collecting Pokemon cards, reading, and doing crafty science experiments.

The Cat

Nermal

She's a terrible creature. She loves stealing human food, getting into the cat treat cabinet, hissing at people, and biting you for no reason.
