Kelly & Robert | Austin Wedding Photographer

Again – Happy New Year to you all!

Today is day one of the catch up posts and it’s a great wedding at The Austin Club in downtown Austin with Kelly and Robert! This was my first time shooting at The Austin Club and I loved the old style urban club feel this location has. It’s also in a great spot downtown with lots of cool options for photos.

Kelly and Robert are from Dallas and I had met them in person just the evening prior at their rehearsal dinner. (On a side note, I love shooting rehearsal dinners!) They are a smart, sophisticated couple and I knew their wedding would be a great mix of classic touches and fun.

The lovely and talented Lorena Molina coordinated the day and my pal Scott Stater was there to second shoot.  

It was great getting to know you two and I am so happy for you!! Best of everything.

So let’s talk about lighting really quickly. It. Transforms. A. Space. Seriously. If there is room is the budget – I cannot recommend it enough.

Saturday Sweetness: Not So Basic Black Album

If you’ve been by the studio and looked at my sample albums, you know I’m a big fan of showing you what’s possible in album design. Pink! Purple! Yellow! Silver! Zebra! I have all of the colors of the rainbow and then some. However, while you have pretty much any option you want, there is someting to be said for timeless, classic choices.

The lovely Leslie and Ryan picked up their album this week and I wanted to show you that the basic black album got an upgrade. It is so pretty. Gorgeous printing and modern binding – sharp, square pages. Yum! It’s completely archival too. It’ll outlast all of us.

Leslie + Ryan: Austin Wedding Photography

A winter wedding with two of the loveliest people I have ever met? Yes, please.

Leslie + Ryan’s  beautiful winter wedding was a great way for me to finish off 2009. Leslie is a dream client. She is thoughtful, appreciative and a classic beauty. Ryan is a perfect match for her with his quiet, relaxed way. They are both a little quiet, but the way they light up around each other was a joy to witness. The two of them planned a timeless wedding. I loved how so many of these photos would have looked great 50 years ago and will look fabulous 50 years from now.

Becky and Stephanie from BZ Events made sure that the day ran smoothly (and also conquered a little bustle problem). Miss Tali was along for second shooting and was great as always.

Thank you so much for having me as your photographer. I enjoyed every bit of my time with you both!

I love love love the Ketubah signing at Jewish weddings.
