Kimpton Hotel Van Zandt Wedding | Austin Wedding Photographer

This fearlessly fun couple from San Diego traveled with their closest friends and family (quite a few of them!) to Austin, Texas for their wedding day. I got a glimpse of how much fun Amy and John would be to work with when they told me their love story started at a silent disco! These two definitely know how to live it to the fullest together. And their wedding day represented their awesome personality from start to finish, just as it should be.

The big day

After the “getting ready” photos, I met them in the hotel mezzanine to capture their private and heartfelt first look. They cried happy tears as they saw each other for the first time, ready to step out in this new adventure together. I enjoyed taking all the creative, modern couple’s portraits around hotel—there were so many great backdrops and photo opportunities! Check out those romantic, edgy closeups in front of the fire.

After relaxing and getting into a groove together, it was time for the ceremony. Their personal vows made even the most stoic guests shed a tear. Amy shared story about how John proposed on her father’s birthday (who was incredibly missed on her wedding day—you will see several toasts to the sky for him and a bouquet charm with his photo & handkerchief on it.)

Next, it was time to get their dance moves on. This group knew how to party—easily one of the best receptions I’ve attended. I don’t think anyone left early. John’s dad broke his foot and was stuck maneuvering a scooter with a hot pink cast, but he didn’t let that stop him from getting out on the dance floor a few times (definitely made for some hilarious pictures).

If you’re familiar with the trend, they got ICED at their own wedding reception (thank you to wedding planner Jen &Smirnoff)! Amy & John took it all in stride, dropped to one knee, and took it like champs! To keep up the energy for dancing (or even breakdancing), they served ice cream sandwiches at reception.

And for the finale, Amy and John took advantage of the hundreds of white balloons for a photo op during their reception, and then used them for their final exit! It was stunning.

Thanks to the spectacular event planners Pearl Events, one of the best DJs from Austin Pro DJ, beautiful florals from Bouquets of Austin, and hair & makeup by Adore, everything went off without a hitch for this epic destination wedding. Congrats, Amy and John! I wish you both the very best!

Bluebonnet Bridal Portraits at Ladybird Johnson Wildflower

It’s an absolute blast when I get to photograph a couple through their engagement session, bridal portraits and then wedding. By then, we know each other well and the trust is well established, and everyone feels stress free when it’s time for wedding day photos. Erin & her mom Debbie have become very close to my heart, and I love this family so much! Erin’s bluebonnet bridal portraits were a total blast and we got so many amazing images out of just two locations.

The stunning Erin had originally planned on her bridal portraits at a completely different location, but we realized her session was scheduled right in the heart of wildflower and bluebonnet season. So at the last minute, we had a change of plans and shot in some gorgeous South Austin parks that I scouted, then headed over to the always exquisite Lady Bird Johnson Wildflower Center. Her Martina Liana dress, her perfect glow by Lipservice XO,and her bright bouquet by Bouquets of Austin were the sprinkles on top of a gorgeous bridal session!

After seeing all the gorgeous images of Erin in their gallery, this mom decided they needed to order two bridal albums stat! Sadly, so many clients let their images live on a USB drive and never actually get to enjoy the photos. With an album especially, it can be put out on the coffee table or book shelf to be enjoyed every day! These flushmount bridal albums are archival heirloom quality. I love that this family chose for an image cover instead of the usual leathers… something a little different!
