"After finding and meeting Audra, we knew immediately we had found this magical unicorn of a wedding photographer. Not only are Audra and Thijs the consummate professionals, with truly endless warmth and care for their clients before, during, and after the wedding (yes, even after!), but they captured some of the most beautiful photos I have ever seen. When our photos arrived, my husband and I clicked through, stunned, and on repeat said, "oh my god, look at this one!" until we confirmed that they were all "oh-my-god-look-at-this-ones!" frame on your mantle photos. We are so grateful to have found Audra Wrisley Photography, and will cherish our wedding through their art for years to come."

"Working with Audra & Thijs is truly a wonderful experience. We had initially worked with them on our engagement photos and loved their work. We were lucky enough to have them also be a wonderful part of our wedding and have captured memories that I know we will cherish forever. They are so professional and wonderful to work with, but they are also the most lovely human beings and go above and beyond to make sure your big day is as special as possible."

Ashley & Dustin

"Audra and Thijs were absolutely our best wedding vendor. After securing our venue, finding a wedding photographer was our top priority. I talked with many DC area photographers until I found Audra and knew she was perfect for our wedding day. On our wedding day, my husband and I felt so comfortable already because of our engagement shoot with Audra. She captured the day perfectly and the photos are beautiful. She and Thijs were so professional and you could tell they had done this millions of times.

If you are so lucky to have Audra as your wedding photographer, she will make you feel as if you are her only client. She and Thijs always have smiles on their faces and make you feel so comfortable during your wedding day. When your wedding day is over, all you will have to look back on are the memories. Audra will make sure that these memories are flawless :) Thank you for everything, Audra and Thijs!"

“Working with Audra was an amazing experience. Audra was also incredibly responsive and helpful throughout the whole wedding process. I have no words to describe how beautiful our photos turned out. We continue to get flooded with compliments and how kind and courteous Audra was to our entire family – both of which are priceless. We wouldn’t recommend other wedding photographer in the DC area.”
