Danny & Jess | Band mates and a couples session in Austin, Texas

I had a great time shooting these band photos with Danny and Jess (I also shot Danny’s first album photos too)! They also happen to be dating, so it was extra easy catching photos of their personal connection on top of their musical connection. Not to mention Jess’s beautiful blue eyes and  both of their styling outfits.  Most of these photos were taken around east Austin. If anyone is ever looking for colorful walls and fun backdrops, East Austin is the place to go! We started off at this amazing green wall with bamboo and then headed over to a warehouse for some seriously rockin’ band photos.  -You can find out more info on Danny and Jess here – they play all over Austin on a regular basis so go and check them out sometime! Enjoy!Younge couple.

Meredith M. :: Bridal Portraits in San Antonio, TX

Meredith & Travis finally tied the knot yesterday in San Antonio, TX (yay!), which means I can finally reveal her bridal session to you (yay!)! Meredith is a natural stunner as you can see, and she had her dress handmade by a local seamstress, complete with lacy shoulder straps and custom belt sash. We took a little trek down to San Antonio to shoot these bridal portraits in her parent’s lush backyard gardens. I especially love it that she picked a place that had special meaning to her. We even got a few sweet shots of her in the swing she used to swing in when she was younger… so cute! We continued on to the neighborhood club house to snag some gorgeous architectural shots with it’s stone pillars. Mom Cheryl even helped out with veil flinging duty – it was a super fun family affair and I can’t wait to show the wedding photos soon!

Hope & Noah :: Hummingbird House Austin Wedding Photos in Austin, TX

How do I even begin a blog post when it’s about one of my best girlfriends’ wedding? I can’t even put into words how much I love these guys, and their Hummingbird House Austin wedding. I’ve know Hope for at least 6 years, and we’ve seen each other through a lot of ups and downs, so when I found out her and Noah had gotten engaged, I was absolutely giddy for them! And because we wanted to get our dance party on during her reception, I just shot her “getting ready” through shortly after her ceremony when another photographer took over photos. My boyfriend Tom & I also did a surprise performance of “Islands in the Stream” by Dolly Parton & Kenny Rogers, so I had to have some time to warm up the vocal chords, you know? :) But seriously, the Perkins family girls are pretty much known as the Holy Grail of craftiness in the DIY crafting scene. Mom Fredda,  an avid antique collector and crafter, made the stunning bridal brooch bouquets from vintage finds, and sister Jen is the force behind jewelry queen Naughty Secretary Club and Blogher, while the bride Hope is single-handedly one of the funniest and most talented artist I’ve ever met. Operating under the business Hot Pink Pistol, Hope has won countless accolades for her 3-d painting and glitter pom-pomed taxidermy. So when you see glittered high heels, bedazzled guest books, giant 3d tigers and animal heads in centerpieces, you won’t have to wonder who made them. It’s entirely a family affair, rooted firmly in Hope’s love of color and bling. I feel so luck to have been part of such a special day and hope that you enjoy these photos as much as I enjoyed being a part of it!

Sidni & Jay :: Deep Eddy Caberet | Austin, TX Engagement Session

What a fun Austin engagement session! I don”t think there is a better way to break the ice on a first date than to shoot some pool and drink some Lone Stars.   Sidni and Jay had their first date at Deep Eddy Cabaret and that’s where we went to start the day.  Deep Eddy is a great hole in the wall and made an excellent back drop for such a fun couple.   Later we went to Jay’s parents house to take advantage of the beautiful landscape and lush lawns.   This also allowed for us to get some awesome pictures with their three (!) sweet Labradors. I think we broke the record for most cute puppies in one photo! Can’t wait to see how much fun their wedding will be!

Austin, TX Wedding Photography >> Umlauf Sculpture Gardens Wedding :: Carla + Jeff

Does it seem like I’ve been at Umlauf Sculpture Gardens a lot lately? It’s true, but I love it, and shooting Carla and Jeff”s wedding there was a blast! They live in San Francisco but, having met in Austin, decided to have their celebration here.  And they lucked out with one of the first cool Texas nights and a long while.  The Umlauf Sculpture Gardens, with its lush lawn and dramatic sculptures, was the perfect setting for such a hip couple.  The flowers from Rosehip Flora were absolutely beautiful and were a perfect match for the bridesmaid’s (Carla’s daughters) colorful dresses.  The gorgeous food from Ecstatic Cuisine was pleasing to the both vegan and meat eater’s pallet.  To finish the evening at Umlauf the couple danced to a great song by  local Austin band Quiet Company. After the reception, everyone hopped back on the party bus and headed downtown to continue the good times at the Speakeasy.  It was the quintessentially perfect Austin wedding!
