Liz and Nathan chose the beautiful venue of Villa St. Clair in Austin, and it was a perfect backdrop to a fun and elegant wedding with great photography opportunities. This couple had a lot of big personality and seem just made for each other. Laughing and spunky attitude everywhere. I heard the bestest of the best man toasts ever: “Now instead of hanging out with me, a pit bull, and WWF, you get two little white yappy dogs and HGTV. We’re gonna miss you, man, but she’s a way better kisser!” It was also some of the most dancing I’ve ever seen at a wedding, almost all the guests were getting in on the action. Even the videographers, my assistant, and I did a little two-step bootie shake!

I’ve known Kim since she was about the age my oldest daughter is now. Seeing her step out of the restroom at the Texas State Capitol in downtown Austin dressed all in her white wedding gown was an other-worldly experience! I realized in a few short years that will be over after just blinking, my own daughter will be ready to be getting her bridal portraits taken in true Texas fashion with cowboy boots underneath that beautiful wedding dress. I can only hope she finds as much happiness as Kim has found with Landon that was so obvious after spending time with them during their engagement photography session. Thank you for letting me be part of this time in your life and share in your beauty and joy through my photography.

110611-wedding-photography-Austin-Salt-Lick-BBQ-guests-Charlies-AngelsThis gorgeous couple definitely made the most of their day with some of the best silly facial expressions I’ve seen yet! Of course, only those that showed their intense devotion to one another that is the flip side of their intense senses of humor! During our consultation I asked if they wanted to forward any links to favorite wedding photos so I could get an idea of what they like, and Chris said, “We didn’t look at any other web sites but yours. Your personality had us hooked!” So my honest sarcasm for once hasn’t bitten me in the butt. When I met their friends I fit right in. A great laughing group with so many inside jokes like Charlie’s Angels and the “claw,” all the time they spend together was obvious.

They chose the beautiful outdoor Chapel Dulcinea in Driftwood, TX with a reception following at the Salt Lick BBQ Garden Room. Of course they were generous enough to feed me at my favorite restaurant. Best to the both of you on this next phase in your lives together, and thank you for having me a part of your wedding.

Sneak Peek of some of my favorites from Tara and Chris’s wedding today at Chapel Dulcinea in Driftwood near Austin, Texas. Beautiful summer weather, not too hot, with a gorgeous couple. Experienced actors, their boisterous, fun personalities came through with a lot of joking for such a laid back event. Definitely a model couple for staying chill, fun, up for anything I suggested for poses, with lots of ideas themselves. I’m looking forward to editing the rest of this session for their wedding.
