Austin Wedding Photographer | Published

I have been neglectful in telling you about this as we are knee deep in the ‘week before Kindergarten madness’ at our house, but Emily and Trey have been featured on the delightful Elizabeth Anne Designs Blog.

I love this blog – full of pretty weddings, DIY and inspiration. Ami does an amazing job featuring luxe details and stunning wedding days from all across the country.

Go check it out and tell Emily and Trey that they are incredible! Their full wedding day blog will be up here later this afternoon – so check back!

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.

Austin Wedding Photographer | Laurel & Jon at Vista West Ranch

It becomes apparent VERY quickly after you spend any time with Laurel and Jon that they have fairy tale love. The kind where little birds and hearts and ribbons follow them around. It really is something to be in the presence of that kind of emotion. I knew after shooting their engagement portraits that their wedding would be a special one.

They had an emotional and beautiful wedding at Vista West Ranch and every part of the day felt like them. It was an honor to be a part of it.

Thank you so much Laurel and Jon and I hope the next chapter in your lives is even more exciting and beautiful.
