Kim and Landon were married a week earlier in his Utah hometown, and came back to her hometown of Austin for a local wedding reception at Old Settler’s Park in Round Rock. Wedding photography at second receptions is always fun and low key because the post wedding stress and honeymoon bride and groom are always so relaxed. Plus, it’s a great way to get a lot of mileage out of that beautiful dress. It was great to see their families again, our old friends, and share in this whimsical Western-themed event complete with cocktail gowns with cowboy boots. I loved seeing their framed prints from their engagement and bridal photography sessions decorating their wedding reception. It’s amazing how fast Kim grew up. I wish I could stop blinking, because my own kids are growing up just as quickly when my eyes are closed.

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!

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.
