140405-wedding-photography-Austin-photographers-camerasHolly and Jeff shared an intimate, stylishly casual wedding at Holly’s sister’s home in central Austin. Surrounded by their family and friends, their sons stood up with them on the beautiful covered front porch. And of course, I always love my second shooter capturing me “chimping” at the back of my camera with the paparazzi!

Texas State University students Sara and Edwin celebrated their wedding with a lovely backyard reception in Plum Creek, Kyle, Texas. I love getting to know a bride and groom before a wedding because we can tailor their photography. My first opportunity to work with them was a family photo session, then their engagement session, and then their wedding. Her youngest sister and my oldest daughter became close friends throughout the process as well. Their intimate backyard gathering with family and friends was a perfect way to show their quiet devotion to one another, and set off Edwin’s sense of humor. I know they’ll take wonderful care of one another. Congratulations on your wedding, and best to you on your long, happy marriage together!

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.

Kristen and Chris, the only thing cuter than their names are themselves! Gorgeous couple with stunning blue eyes, and she is just flawless, making great engagement photography so easy. What a great session at Mayfield Park and Mt. Bonnell in central Austin with perfect sweet spot golden light. The only other guests at the park that night were photographers trying not to get in each others’ way. Seems we all knew the weather had cooled down and that the sun was in a good mood that day. Kris and Chris were a tender, fun couple with great attitudes and good conversation. They’ve chosen the impressive yet quaint Casablanca on Brushy Creek as the venue for their February wedding. I love February weddings because my own anniversary is that month, back in 1997. Photographing weddings always make me melt in appreciation for my own marriage. I am looking forward to getting to know them better to make their wedding photos really make a statement about who they are!
