Detail of the Week | Instagram hashtags for weddings

OH YES! I love Instagram (and will have a post on it next week). I’m ‘SCPHOTO’ if you want to follow me (and I would love that because you’ll get a really great glimpse into my life and what makes me tick).

Just click on the icon to find me. But more about that later…


I think an Instagram hashtag is the PERFECT thing to incorporate into your wedding because who doesn’t have a smart phone at this point? Trust me, these people will be taking photos at your wedding and how FUN is it to see those photos immediately after the wedding? It is FUN, trust me. Plus, my assistant and I are all over the place, but can’t be everywhere at all times. Your guests can get some great behind the scenes perspective photos for you.

Jill and Matt (who you will be seeing more of later this month) had this delightful little sign at their Camp Lucy wedding and got to see lots of fun photos of their wedding immediately. I also participated (and totally will at your wedding too if you do this). Check out their hashtag and see the GIANT tarantula that crashed cocktail hour.

EEEE! Oh hill country, never change.

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.

Four Seasons Austin Wedding Photographer | Sandra + Andrew

The Austin Four Seasons on a crisp and sunny Fall day, a romantic night time ceremony on the lawn under twinkle lights and a rocking reception that went on long after most of Austin was sleeping. This is most definitely the kind of wedding to end my year on.

Sandra and Andrew are my travelling couple and it was only fitting that their wedding guests flew in from all parts of the United States and Mexico to celebrate with them. I know how much effort Sandra put into her wedding plans and she had the extra challenge of currently living in Washington DC. As a former long distance planning bride, I know the extra challenges it presents, so I was so happy to see her vision come together so nicely on her wedding day.

Aimee Villa fromLizzeBelle was a big part of the reason that things looked so great and ran so smoothly. As I’ve told you all a million times, a great Wedding Coordinator not only makes things run more smoothly for the couple, but all of their vendors as well. Thanks for everything Aimee! ALso, big thanks to Tali for seconding as usual. Complete vendor info is at the bottom.

Thank you so much Sandra and Andrew for having me in your lives these past months. I hope you had a lovely honeymoon and know that you will have a beautiful life together. Talk soon!

We shot a mini Bridal Session with Sandra to start the day.I did zero retouching on her skin – it’s just this perfect. The first look – always a delight to me. Their bilingual night time ceremony incorporated many Mexican wedding traditions.

The reception was decorated in shades of purple with gold accents. The lighting really helped transform the space and made it glow.

The food looked great too. Something I love about the Four Seasons is that they will customize anything you want for your menu. I can honestly say that this crowd had the best time, was the best dressed and probably on the whole, the best looking group of reception guests I have ever seen. As far as I know, they might still be dancing. 2011 party goers – the standard has been set.

Vista West Ranch Open House Reminder

Just a quick reminder that the Vista West Ranch Open House is this Saturday!

I got the official flyer from the lovely Aimee of LizzeBelle Events who is coordinating the event and now I’m even more excited! This is a super group of vendors (and yes, I am a little biased as I’ll be there, but it really is a great group). I know you will love meeting all of them.

Come play!

 Shannon Cunningham is an Austin, Texas Wedding Photographer and very proud member of the Vista West Ranch preferred vendors list.
