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!

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.

Beautiful Ruth booked the San Antonio Mission national park for her bridal, and what an amazing opportunity to shoot there with a such a beauty. Her unique dress and cathedral veil created a dreamy mood with the quiet stone cathedrals behind her. After photographing Ruth and John’s engagement session, it really helped me get a true sense of her quiet but quirky sense of fun, and the exchange of ideas we both had for shots we wanted to capture was custom photography at its best. She chose a full-length bridal gown portrait for the large canvas to display at her reception this summer at Springhill Event Center. Good luck on your upcoming wedding, I can’t wait to create more beautiful images with you both!

Old Glory Ranch in Wimberley, Texas is exactly the kind of old time Texas rustic ranch chapel you’d expect in these here parts. We adore Wimberley with its antique downtown charm, but mostly for the almost lush naturescape along the lazy creeks and rivers that crisscross this area. Complete with a to-die-for lace train, cowboy boots, and a wagon, these bridal shots will be displayed at the reception for all to bask in her beauty, and I promise those are her real eyes with no assistance from Photoshop!
