Austin Wedding Photographer | Liz + Tim at The Driskill

Liz and Tim were married at a very personal and heartfelt ceremony at First United Methodist Church of Austin followed by an elegant yet rollicking reception at The Driskill Hotel. Liz’s amazing beaded gown and the men’s black tie tuxes fit right in at The Driskill. Even with the large wedding, everyone had fun and seemed to be a good friend or family member. The dance floor was consistently packed. I love it when I see a couple actually enjoying their reception.

Thanks so much for everything Liz and Tim! I wish you all the happiness in the world!

Austin Wedding Photographer | Kristen and Brad

New Year (ish) and I’m back to blogging! Kristen and Brad’s ceremony and reception was one of my favorites from last year. They are honestly two of the sweetest people you will ever meet and their entire wedding was built around family and sentiment and love, which is how it should be right? They had a ceremony at the Smith Family Chapel in Austin and then headed up to Kristen’s parent’s home in Round Rock for an elegant and fun backyard reception with amazing dancing, ice cream sandwiches, a cigar bar, cracker jack, sparklers and a sweet vintage getaway car.

So much love to both of you!

Congrats to Kristen and Brad and what a great backyard wedding. These photos are just amazing plus I really adore the wedding decorations.

Austin Wedding Photographer | Kelsey and Carlos

Darling Aggies studying to be Veterinarians? Sign me up! I met Kelsey and Carlos for their engagement photos on a threatening (weather-wise) day in south Austin. I knew I was in for a fun session when these two were completely unfazed by the drizzly weather that greeted us. In addition, they are some of my early morning troopers.

As we walked around and took photos, we were eventually greeted by the most amazing few minutes of sunshine. Like EPIC sunshine. As I recall, the rest of the day was completely dreary, so I like to think that Kelsey and Carlos’s sweet personalities and up for anything spirit is what brought the sun out.

Can’t wait to see you both in just a few months at Vista West Ranch!!!

Detail of the Week | Redux

Last year around this time, I was able to photograph the Driskill tree lighting and party. It was beautiful and festive and cozy. I love the Driskill for weddings, events, bridals – anything! It was planned and designed by the creative geniuses over at BZ Events and featured a beautiful champagne cocktail with a sparkly swizzle stick.

A few weeks ago, I noticed a lot of traffic from Pinterest to that photo and I felt badly that we didn’t have a recipe to go along with the photo. So I hit up the BZ people and voila! Just in time for the holidays, a festive cocktail recipe for you. It’s easy and gorgeous!

Oh I love Instagram! Do you? There is a huge amount of freedom that I feel when I lift my little smart phone and just snap with no settings or focus adjustments to make. I am also a huge fan of the square picture. I have an old vintage camera that shoots square negatives and it’s always been a pleasing shape to me.

You can find me HERE if you’d like to follow along with me.

I often talk about relationship driven photography. My Instagram feed is definitely a little slice of my life and by following it, you can learn all sorts of silly and not so silly things about me. I’ll occasionally post something pretty from a wedding, but mostly it’s whatever catches my eye.

Be prepared, my feed is not art, but it is pretty fun.

Happy Thursday!
