DOCUMENTARY STYLE PHOTOGRAPHY

Deciding on a professional photographer for your special event can sometimes be stressful and unpleasant, but it doesn't have to be.

What makes Anthony Johnson Photography stand out from the thousands of options that are out there is the amount of raw talent and personal detail we pour into each event. We focus on the things that are important to YOU while capturing & documenting an exciting story.

Whether you are the host or the event planner, the last thing you want to be doing during your special event is being all over the place with your phone, trying to chase special moments, smiles, conversations, while connecting with your guests.  It’s impossible! That’s where we come handy! And because we are specialized in events, our focus is documentary oriented.

Documentary and photojournalism style photography is more than simply snapshots from a day. It’s about having an instinct for what may happen, a grounded experience of the day itself. It’s still and always will be about composition & story telling. Lay a dozen prints side by side from a professional photographer and a guest with camera and you should be able to tell immediately how engaged the professional is. For me, that is the real difference between a professional and a guy with a camera.

What people are saying about our services!

I’ve had the pleasure of working with Anthony in the past, and he did not disappoint when I asked him to shoot my 40th birthday pool party! He was so awesome to accept the job at such short notice, and he was very flexible the day of the event when the weather decided not to cooperate. Although the rain was challenging, Anthony still delivered amazing photos that captured everything I wanted from my party! The photos were fun, yet they captured the raw emotion of my special day. Anthony was so easy going and a pleasure to work with. My guests absolutely LOVED the photos... Thank you, Anthony!

My fiancé and I hired Anthony based on a recommendation from a dear friend. Anthony exceeded our expectations with the quality of work as well as professionalism. His attention to detail at the event was impeccable while maintaining a low profile. He captured everything we desired throughout the evening. We will be using him again for personal as well as corporate events.

When it comes to capturing the party or the emotion of people, Anthony always sets that bar high. His knowledge and creativity quickly take over and before you know it, you have your new default pictures for social media or that instant flyer image you were needing.

Anthony shot an online marketing training event for us here in Austin and his photos and “eye” are spectacular! He did a headshot for me and I’m in love with it! I’m not particularly photogenic, and I really am not a fan of getting my pic taken - but he put me at ease and got me to bring my best, most natural smile forward! Thanks so much, Anthony - really appreciate your time!

Anthony was the photographer at a business conference I spoke at in Austin. He did a great job of capturing so many angles of the event. Speakers, the audience and many unique views of the interaction from the day. He really understands how to frame up the right shot and capture it.
