Austin Wedding Photographer | Emily & Trey at The Four Seasons

Comfy chair alert – big post ahead.

Emily and Trey were married on the lawn, under those big, incredible oaks at The Four Seasons Austin. These two have been dream clients (along with their lovely families) and I was so happy I got to spend so  much time with them between our meetings, the engagement session, Emily’s Bridal and their rehearsal dinner. I was so thrilled for them on their wedding day. It is always my dream and generally my reality that I am so excited for my clients on their wedding day.

Despite planning a large wedding with many, incredible details, these two were relaxed and happy throughout the planning and the wedding festivities. I will say that I suspect the expert planning at BZ Events helped with the stress level, but still, they were two cool cucumbers that were just delighted to get married to each other.

Emily and Trey, thank you so much for inviting me into your and your families’ lives this past year. I have loved getting to know you and wish you nothing but the best in life.

Staying Cool | Summer Updates

This weekend I wrap up a VERY busy July with Aurelie and Jarod’s sure-to-be-delightful wedding.

I’ll be taking a bit of a break from all of the crazy busy shooting in August and focusing on some business housekeeping and hanging out with family and friends. However, there are a bunch of weddings yet to be blogged, so keep hanging around. I won’t desert you in your procrastination hour of need.

I’ll also be working on a new project with a friend that should be ready to unveil in the next few months.  We’re very excited about it. Finally, I’ll be announcing a portrait special and fall /winter holiday mini session information over on the PhotoFrolic blog. If you’re interested in a family/holiday session, be sure to go like PhotoFrolic on Facebook; I’ll be announcing the details there first.

Anyway, I hope your summer is going swimmingly. We sure are having a great time over here.

XOXO, stay cool and see you soon!

Emily & Trey’s Rehearsal Dinner | The Vince Young Steakhouse

This is a beautiful rehearsal dinner! I am getting sad that I’m almost to Emily and Trey’s wedding post as I will feel like they are really not my clients anymore and I will miss them! So I’m dragging this out by putting the rehearsal dinner up first.

I had not been to the Vince Young Steakhouse, but it a lovely venue full of helpful and gracious people. The food looked amazing too.  I know Trey’s parents put a lot of effort into making this a special evening and I’m so happy it turned out so well.

Enjoy!
