Austin Wedding Photographer | Jennifer & David at The Terrace Club

As it seems that things aren’t going to slow down for a while (not complaining, by the way) it is time for me to buckle down and get some work up on the blog! I have lots to share with you!

Jennifer and David were married at The Terrace Club in Dripping Springs on one of our million hot days this summer. It was a sweet and genuine day with lots of love poured into it. I know Jennifer spent many hours designing and crafting away to add a personal touch to their wedding.

This wedding also had some of the most fun dancing! Breakdancing! The Limbo! David and his work friends cutting loose! Justin Bieber sing-a-long! All of that and more. Fun fact – David knows all of the dance moves to ‘Bye, Bye, Bye’.  Nice. I like when people come ready to have a good time.

Many thanks to The Terrace Club for the lovely hospitality and especially to James, who second shot this wedding with me. Some of his photos are below as well.

Extra special thanks to David and Jennifer for having me along on this awesome day. You two have been such a pleasure and I wish you nothing but the best!

Shot of the day right here people… James took this one. It’s right before the ceremony and I keep coming back to admire it. The people that second shoot with me humble me with their talent! There is so much emotion here.

The toasts were funny, sweet and very touching.

Fredericksburg Wedding Photographer | Amy & Kepper at Becker Vineyards

Amy and Kepper! We already know and love them from their incredible rehearsal dinner, so now let’s get down to business with their wedding, yes? These two live in Virginia where Kepper is a helicopter pilot for the Navy and Amy works as a government contractor. There was much debate about the location of their wedding, but as they said, once they visited Becker Vineyards, they knew that a Texas Hill Country summer wedding was for them!

Amy and her girls got ready in a super charming house in downtown Fredericksburg. For a photographer, it was a great location. Bright and airy and full of charm. Kepper got ready at his parents equally charming home in Fredericksburg.

Amy and Kepper’s ceremony was unique in that it featured readings from two former Presidents; John Adams and Ronald Reagan. The readings were love letters to their wives and the letters made me happy that my camera has autofocus, because I was a little misty after hearing them. I love unusual, personal elements in a wedding ceremony!

I liked them so much, I went and found one on the ol’ interwebs. It is below and I hope you enjoy. It’s from Ronald Reagan to Nancy Reagan on their wedding anniversary.

Dear First Lady,

I know tradition has it that on this morning I place cards Happy Anniversary cards on your breakfast tray. But things are somewhat mixed up. I substituted a gift & delivered it a few weeks ago.

Still this is the day, the day that marks 31 years of such happiness as comes to few men. I told you once that it was like an adolescent’s dream of what marriage should be like. That hasn’t changed.

You know I love the ranch but these last two days made it plain I only love it when you are there. Come to think of it that’s true of every place & every time. When you aren’t there I’m no place, just lost in time & space.

I more than love you, I’m not whole without you. You are life itself to me. When you are gone I’m waiting for you to return so I can start living again.

Happy Anniversary & thank you for 31 wonderful years.

I love you

Your Grateful Husband

I mean, right?! Wow.

Amy has the best big smile and most contagious laugh. You’ll see it several more times in this post. Love. Her.

It’s always a nice way to start off the morning learning that a wedding I photographed has been published, especially when it’s a couple that is as fabulous as Lori and Jason. I still smile thinking about their glamorous and FUN wedding at The Driskill Hotel this spring.

Austin Wedding Photography | Amy & Kep’s Rehearsal


Up today is Amy & Kepper’s Tin Star Ranch rehearsal dinner!

Amy and Kep live out of town and wanted to bring a real Texas flair to their rehearsal dinner for all of their out of town guests. They chose the Tin Star Ranch in Fredericksburg, had barbeque, Shiner Bock and margaritas. This place is seriously a ranch – check out those scenic vistas! There was nothing to see except ranch land, rustic charm and big Texas sky. Kepper told me they have sharpshooting contests there as well – cool! I almost feel like I should save this post for the winter when we (eventually) get rain, so we can remember how gorgeous the sky is during summer.

This was my first time to meet Amy and Kep in person and both they and their families made me right at home. It was a great night of celebration. Their Becker Vineyards wedding will be coming up next!
