Kristen and Chris were married at the gorgeous Casablanca on Brushy Creek in Round Rock on a warm February day. My last wedding before maternity leave was the perfect combination of casual elegance. The harp and viola music, the dignified Tex-Mex catering, the creek at sunset, and the variety of huge, open indoor spaces together with a beautiful couple and their friends created a timeless princess story.
I always get a kick out of seeing the photos we created for engagement and bridal shoots on display at the reception, on their blogs, or Facebook profile photos, and they had decorated many of the tabletops with vignettes of our sessions together. It’s always an honor being involved with a couple creating their first family heirloom from such a treasured part of their lives, helping remove the stress and capture the feeling of romantic fun and closeness around their wedding day. Thank you for having me as your wedding photographer…and engagement photographer…AND bridal photographer! It was an honor getting to know you better as you set off on this new journey together.
Sara and Edwin are getting married this summer with a reception at Texas Old Town in Kyle. They spent a lot of time dating around Texas State University Campus, and the San Marcos City Park is especially dear to them. It has great photo opportunities for a natural outdoor look. Their excitement was infectious as they had only become engaged just days before. Congratulations to you both!
Sparks flew when Kristen arrived for her bridal at the Texas State Capitol in downtown Austin! A beautiful bride, we had some fun adventures trying to change into her gown in the foyer bathroom, braving the February freeze for outdoor shots, then going back in through the security line still in a bridal gown! Of course, she got priority treatment while her mom and I had to actually wait in line, even though I was 8 months pregnant. However, we got to wear jackets and sweaters outside, so she deserved some special treatment for braving the biting wind chill in a strapless bodice with such grace and good spirits, especially with the last minute change of venue from Zilker Botanical Gardens to the Capitol. Indoors ruled the day, but as the sun dipped into that gorgeous evening light, we decided to sacrifice a little comfort (okay, for her it was a LOT of comfort!) for such a beautiful location. Congratulations, and I’m excited to be at your upcoming wedding later this month!
