Behind The Scenes

Anastacia -

I am LGBT friendly, an animal lover, and a nerd! I love creating things (woodworking, photography, drawing, and writing), watching movies, playing video games and spending time with my son and my fur baby!

I have an American Stafforshire Terrier whom I rescued (he's my little three legged miracle), and a 6 year old troublemaker and is notorious for making me laugh.

I am originally from Central America and was raised in Asia and Europe (Army daughter), but now I reside in the beautiful capitol of Texas. While Austin, TX is good to me, I still love to travel, and so I look forward to having my first destination wedding outside the state.

TJ -

Originally from Missouri, I too am a huge animal lover, LGBT friendly and a big nerd. I love the outdoors, going to the gym, bowling and shooting pool. I served in the Army as a mechanic for nearly five years.

After being stationed in Texas, I immediately fell in love with this state. And so I made it my home as I moved forward focusing on my passion for photography.


About The Brand

Hi! Anastacia (Natasha), here! I founded McCarthyStudios in 2017 after re-branding my image to honor my family and what they mean to me. I have been a photographer since 2012, originally specializing in portraits and fashion photography.

I changed the focus of my work to weddings in 2015 after coming across a couple that needed their wedding photographed. After helping capture their big day, I was hooked!

I loved being there for them from the start of their day until the very end, experiencing all the joy along with them. Seeing that kind of happiness and magic come together really stuck with me, so I continued to offer my services for more lovely couples!

Shortly after, I teamed up with TJ so that we could make the McCarthyStudios brand one to remember!


Our Style

We adore the light and airy look! Our style consists of candid moments (the best!) as well as some elegant poses (for those loved ones).

Our clients create the magic, we just capture it, but in doing so we make certain that the end results look just as magical!

We also love the romantic and whimsical look, but as long as you are happy with what we create together, we are happy!
