San Antonio, TX Wedding + Portrait Photographer for non-traditional folks.
About Your Photographer
Hi, I’m Anthony
I help people who feel awkward in front of a camera look & feel their authentic selves in photos.
Hey there. I’m Anthony Gauna (pronounced GOW-nuh). I’m a wedding, portrait, and boudoir photographer based in San Antonio, TX. The photos you’ll find here are inspired by the connections built between me and the people I photograph. My hope is to photograph everyone’s stories as authentically as possible.
"My now husband and I had such a great time with him throughout the process. By the time the wedding rolled around, I felt like we were old friends just hanging out. When I got our wedding photos, tears filled my eyes because he took me back. I literally laughed and cried as I scrolled through our photos one by one."
- Diana + MatT
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 I 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 I intend to do my part to keep it that way.
What it's like to work with me
Lauren + Forrest
"His work truly reflects the experience you will have with him. I will be using him for any important life events in our life, meaning we will be flying back to Texas from Seattle to do just that. We didn’t just hire a photographer, we gained a friend."
Phong + Megan
"He goes above and beyond to get to know you and it shows with the final product. Anthony remembers the smallest details which made our experience unforgettable. You won’t regret choosing Anthony to capture any special moment in your life."
