Hello! My name is Francis Sylvest, I’m a photographer and filmmaker based in Boulder, Colorado. I made my way to Colorado by ay of Louisiana in 2018, after marrying the love of my life, Elsa.
After picking up a camera for the first time in 2015, I’ve found that I value the emotional power and intimacy that a photograph can render without speaking a word while creating a legacy of love, and a lifetime of joy.
I take photographs because I want to remember, reflect, and share. One of my fondest memories of looking at photographs came from the legacy that my grandparents lived. We would always flip through their photo books, as they told us the story of each photograph, the places they had been, and the people they had met. A true life of love and adventure.
In my spare time you can often find me traveling with Elsa, spending time with friends, getting up at the crack of dawn to enjoy a still morning, and of course, taking photographs along the way.
“Austin is such a talented photographer and a great person to work with!! We can not say enough great things about him and our experience working with him. He took the photos of our elopement at Brainard Lake, we will definitely use him again in the future for family photos. He made the process so smooth and went ABOVE and BEYOND for us, he was available for any questions we had along the way. He put us at ease on our wedding day and helped us and our guests have a wonderful, smooth experience that we will never forget. Our preview photos are out of this world!”

“My wife and I could not be more pleased with the way our engagement and wedding photos turned out! We never felt awkward during the photo sessions, and Francis did a great job of capturing the aesthetics and moments we most wanted. Was extremely satisfied with the professional quality of the photos and the timely manner in which we received them. Would recommend to anyone wanting professional quality work. We got more than our money’s worth, and will definitely use Francis for our future photography needs!”

“Austin was PHENOMENAL to work with! He was so comfortable behind the camera which made us feel comfortable in front of it! He gave us direction but also gave us the space to do our own thing! His photos were stunning and we got our gallery back in record time!! You won’t be disappointed if you book Francis Sylvest for any of your photography needs!”
