Wedding

Allie + Rob - Married!

Allie and Rob were married at Cheval Manor in Manor, Texas. Rob is an avid Polo player and arranged for the wedding to take place on the day of a match (or for a match to be played at the wedding, I'm not entirely sure. Either way, there was a Polo match at this wedding!). I've known Allie for several years and was so honored to be part of this day. Every detail was perfect, the white tents, the wildflowers on the table. A perfect mix of elegant and carefree. 

Thanks to Susan Beth Photography for second shooting with me. Some of the photos below are hers and I could not have done this w/out her.

Liliana & Marshall: Married!!

Liliana and Marshall were married on 09.10.11 in a small ceremony with friends and family and then had a fun, swank reception at the beautiful Driskill Hotel. They prepared me ahead of time their family was very welcoming and by the end of the day I'd feel like one of the gang. I'll be honest, it didn't take near that long. I was invited to brunch, welcomed to partake in the homemade paella and pulled on the dance floor nearly every song. This, folks, is why I love what I do.

Congratulations, Liliana and Marshall! I loved being part of your special day. I'm so glad we were able to work together!

Below is a selection of my favorite photos. The rest of the gallery can be found here.

 

Liliana & Marshall: Engaged!

Liliana and Marshall are the sweetest couple. We connected a little last minute, and thankfully I had their date available. In situations like that, sometimes things get a little chaotic or rushed, but not with these guys. They were so calm and laid back, everything just fell right in to place - like it was meant to be. The more I get to know this couple, the more I see that's how they are in everything they do. What a great way to start their life together.

For those of you who attended the wedding last weekend, the photos will be posted within 2-3 weeks. I can't wait for you all to see them!

On an sidenote, this awesome couple found me through a photographer I'd met last year at an event called Help Portrait Austin. Help-Portrait is a community of photographers, coming together across the world, to use their photography skills to give back to their local community. This year's event is on December 10, 2011. If you are a photographer, make-up artist, hair stylist, or just want to help out, they can always use a hand. You can find more information at http://www.facebook.com/HelpPortraitAustin.

Tracy's Bridal's at Fonda San Miguel

My good friend, Tracy, got married recently, and a few weeks before the wedding we took these amazing bridal portraits at Fonda San Miguel. Fonda holds a special place in her heart as that's where she and her (now husband!) had their first date. In a stroke of good fortune, a mutual friend of ours knows the owner and we were able to have a few quiet moments before the restaurant opened.

This has to be one of my all time favorite sessions, and not just because Tracy and I are friends. The location was amazing and she looked stunning. Planning a wedding isn't easy, and doing a session like this so close to the wedding can be stressful. But once we got started, all that fell away. She was so happy and excited. I loved seeing that unfold before my eyes. Congratulations, Tracy (and John)!

Kendall + Jason - Married!

Awhile back I had the pleasure of meeting Kendall and Jason while taking their engagement photos with Susan Beth Photography. We had a blast hanging out and taking pictures at some of their favorite places in South Austin. This is definitely a couple you love being around. It was more of a fun afternoon on the town instead of a photo session! (In fact, we ended up in a bar having fries and a drink at the end. This is how all my sessions should go!)

 

Fast forward to early April and they were married at St. Luke United Methodist Church with a beautiful reception at the Grey Rock Golf Club. This is such a sweet couple - I can not think of two people more perfect for each other. Thanks again to Susan Beth Photography for the opportunity to second shoot on this. I had a great time all around!
