Garrison Family – Lakeway Texas Photo Shoot

Garrison Family – Lakeway Texas Photo Shoot

It’s always a joy to see my friend and hairstylist (and fellow Austin/Hill Country wedding vendor) Ashley and her hubby Will and son Jax! We were able to take some updated family photos last week out in Lakeway, Texas and couldn’t have asked for a better day.  After a few postponed shoots due to weather, we were blessed with 65 degrees and the most beautiful evening sunlight! Ashley previously did an interview with me with some great advice for brides on how to best prep/book your wedding day hair and makeup.  So, if you or someone you know is getting married, you definitely want to check it out here: http://jessicafreyphotographyblog.com/austin-wedding-hair-makeup-ashley-garrison —— If you’re getting married or know someone who is (or who wants updated photos!!)

Lifestyle Head Shots in Austin – Maria

Lifestyle Head Shots in Austin – Maria

Meeting for iced vietnamese coffee and enjoying french macaroons while discussing gelato, prosecco and a mutual love for Disney sounds like the perfect afternoon in Austin, don’t you think? Top that off with a stroll through 2nd Street district and the Lamar Bridge for epic sunshine photos!  That’s exactly what I did last Friday when I met Maria for the first time to photograph her ‘lifestyle head shot’ photo shoot.  It’s officially my new favorite portrait session that developed after emailing with Maria about they type of photos she was looking for.  She found me via social media and I’ll let her speak to her ‘why’ for wanting these photos.  I hope these showcase the joy that radiates from her and I’m so grateful to have a fellow Cinderella & “all things Italy” fan here in Austin!  Bella Maria! Caio! 1) What was your motivation behind wanting lifestyle head shots? I wanted to have a special memory some of my favorite things to do and places to be in Austin, to share with my friends and family. I wanted to capture this beautiful moment that I’m living, and have fun! As they say in Italy, perchè no?  2) How did you decide on locations/backdrops/outfits you wanted? For the locations, I knew I wanted something like a cute café or restaurant and the view of downtown, which made me fall in love with Austin when I first moved here.  I shared this with Jessica and she proposed some locations, and after some conversation we decided on Elizabeth Street Café, Dolce Neve, 2nd Street and the Lamar bridge. Elizabeth Street Café is such a cute place,...
Capra & Cavelli – Austin Wedding Vendor

Capra & Cavelli – Austin Wedding Vendor

Welcome to another Austin wedding vendor highlight! I’m so excited to share some great advice to groom’s getting married or really any man looking for a great suit/tuxedo.  I had the pleasure of meeting Buddy Estrella at Capra & Cavelli and enjoyed working with him in April to create an Italian look for our Tuscany in Texas wedding theme.  It was a great experience and he took my vision and created a perfectly tailored, modern look for our two models.   I know from a photographer’s perspective, nothing looks better on a groom than a perfectly tailored suit or tuxedo…it really makes a difference and just as the bride gets her ‘once in a lifetime’ dress, I think the men need the same treatment! As a top wedding clothier in Texas, I asked Buddy for his expert opinion and advice for grooms (or their brides searching online for what their man should wear!).  Check out his answers below and if you’re in the Austin area or visiting, go see him at Capra & Cavelli for all your menswear needs and tell him I said Hello!

Santa Barbara Anniversary Wedding Shoot – Knapp’s Castle

Santa Barbara Anniversary Wedding Shoot – Knapp’s Castle

There are certain locations around the world that have taken my breath away (dining at Hotel La Scaletta in Florence, Italy, riding on a scooter bike in Thailand, hugging a Koala in Australia, cave diving in New Zealand, Glacier Bay National Park in Alaska, taking a dip in the volcanic hot springs of Arenal in Costa Rica) AND watching the sunset atop Knapp’s Castle in Santa Barbara!  I feel so blessed that this was my third photo shoot here by request of Justin & Jeanette and I was looking forward to our shoot for months!   The sun didn’t disappoint as we hiked to the slightly hidden ruins high above the clouds and I couldn’t be more happy to capture their love in such an epic location.  (**speaking of epic locations – I’ll be heading to the Cliffs of Moher in Ireland next month in July if you know anyone who wants an epic photo shoot there!!!) Sending love to you both, thank you for trusting me and having such a fun day with me capturing memories!!  xoxoxo, Jessica If you missed part 1, make sure to scroll back up and click here: Justin & Jeanette – Santa Barbara beach photos —— Now booking Fall 2016 & 2017 Weddings in Austin, Texas and Destination! *I’ll also be back in Central California/Yosemite/Bass Lake June 30-July 9th and LA/Bakersfield for a week in November if you’re looking for a photo shoot!

Santa Barbara Anniversary Wedding Shoot – Jeanette & Justin

Santa Barbara Anniversary Wedding Shoot – Jeanette & Justin

If you’ve been following on social media (Facebook:  www.facebook.com/JFreyPhotography or Instagram: @jessicafreyphotography) you’ve seen some sneak peeks of this epic Santa Barbara photo shoot with Justin & Jeanette!  I was so excited to get an email from Jeanette when she knew I was heading back to California to schedule a special photo shoot in Santa Barbara that incorporated Knapps Castle and the beach.  We met up on a Freyday and spent 3 hours together first at the Biltmore Four Seasons, then to the beach to stuck our toes in the sand, and finally we drove the fun/scary drive up to the castle ruins in the mountains above Santa Barbara known as Knapps Castle.  This was my third trip to the epic and slightly hidden destination and it never fails to inspire me and provide the most dramatic views and sunset.  If you ever have a chance and are in the area, look it up and make the trek!  Here’s a look at part 1 of their photo shoot at the Biltmore Four Season and the beach.    Come back soon for part two full of Knapp’s Castle photos! Part 2 coming to the blog soon! —– Now booking Fall 2016 & 2017 Weddings in Austin, Texas and Destination! *I’ll also be back in Central California/Yosemite/Bass Lake June 30-July 9th and LA/Bakersfield for a week in November if you’re looking for a photo shoot!

High School Senior Photos – Baylor Street Graffiti Wall

High School Senior Photos – Baylor Street Graffiti Wall

High School senior photos can be so much fun when they bring out the personality and unique passions of each person!  Last week, Joey visited Austin during her spring break and as an artist and muralist in her town of Ennis, Texas it was only fitting that we visit and take photos at Austin’s famous Baylor Street Grafitti Park!  It was my first time visiting and was we were both so excited by all the colors, artwork and artists all painting.  We paused for the first few minutes to take it all in and watch a few creating their murals before exploring some of the dryer sections.  Side note…not a great place for heels, but Joey made it work in her booties!  Check out some of my favorites below and a huge Congrats to you Joey – good luck on your future plans!!
