Bull Creek Austin Engagement Photos with puppies!

I am so thankful my job leads me to some pretty special friendships and two years ago, I worked a Valentine’s Day wedding at Camp Lucy (Thank you Ryann & James!!) and met an amazing coordinator named Ashley – we quickly hit it off, had lunch with my then 3 month old baby and pretty much met for tacos and town lake walks once a week after that!  She’s an incredible person and it’s been so enjoyable watching her romance with her then boyfriend blossom into the real deal.  These two are engaged and having a fun year of new puppies, a new home and many adventures together!  Ashley & Dan – you two are wonderful together and I’m thankful to know you and count our laser tag brunch double date as one of my favorite double dates ever!  Congratulations and thank you for trusting me with your puppies and to capture this special time in your life!  Love you!   ...
Garden Grove Luxury Spanish Wedding – Styled Austin Photography Workshop

Garden Grove Luxury Spanish Wedding – Styled Austin Photography Workshop

This is my 6th styled wedding photography workshop to host and instruct at and dare I say, the most adventurous one yet?  We started the morning with a tornado warning, hail and possibly flooding in the Texas Hill Country! In April!  Ever the optimist and tracking my weather ap, it appeared that by noon on Sunday the weather would clear and it would be beautiful….and guess what…the weatherman was right!  This amazingly talented and trusting group of local Austin wedding vendors came together at Garden Grove in South Austin and created the perfect vision for our “luxury Spanish villa’ themed wedding!  Jessica Upton of Uptown Events designed an inspiration board full of color and little touches of lace and Spanish vibes that all came together seamlessly.  I love that we get to spoil our attendees with so many details and situations to photograph and truly create a ‘wedding day’ worthy of publication! My goal each year is to provide a professionally styled ‘wedding’ and teach through the important parts for photographers looking to get into wedding photography or enhance their knowledge and provide a safe & fun environment to practice their skills, try new lenses, work on posing and have fun!  I’m blown away each year with the photographers willing to invest in their education and who come eager to learn – I’m so excited to get to be a part of their journey!  I learned from some amazing photographers when I started out 10 years ago and feel blessed to get to pass along my knowledge and processes.  If you’re interested in being a part of the next styled...
Austin Downtown Elopement – Josh & Kiley

Austin Downtown Elopement – Josh & Kiley

I’m so excited to share with you this sweet Austin elopement story and am so thankful to have met these two who will forever hold a special place in my heart…and not just because within 5 minutes of meeting, I was the witness, bridesmaid and photographer, but they’re truly a special couple and we had a grand adventure navigating the SXSW streets of downtown Austin and even shed some tears together! Kiley & Josh chose March 10th for their Austin elopement which is a special date because Kiley’s grandparents would have celebrated their 50th wedding anniversary on March 10th and Kiley wanted to share the same wedding date. How special is that?!  In honor of that, Kiley wore her Grandma’s ring on her right hand which was inscribed with their wedding date and had been custom made in Italy! The icing on the cake…. Josh surprised Kiley with a monogramed The Mrs Box to display her ring in and this photographer’s heart was so happy to see it! She sent her grandmother flowers to celebrate the day and in remembrance of her grandfather who passed away a few years ago. We started the afternoon meeting at The Driskill Hotel where Kiley got ready with her maid of honor, her dog Daisy! She presented Daisy with a “Maid of Honor” dog biscuit from Woofgang Bakery Austin and it made for a fun ‘getting ready’ moment! Also, it was so sweet – Kiley’s friends got her a special “knot” necklace from Tiffany and Co. and a ring holder from Kate Spade to celebrate her special elopement wedding day.  I just loved arriving to their beautiful suite at The Driskill...
SXSW 2017 – The Son and Nobodies

SXSW 2017 – The Son and Nobodies

South by Southwest (SXSW) keeps getting bigger and bigger each year and I’m excited to not only be back in my hometown of Austin, but to have some opportunities to photograph a few things going on around town!  If you follow me on social media, you saw some of these fun moments, but I thought I’d blog about it too just in case (and so I can look back years from now and say wow that was fun!)  I got to preview the first two episodes of both The Son (AMC) and Nobodies (TV Land) and can’t wait to set my DVR and enjoy the rest of the seasons – both are so well acted, written and something I think both Eric and I can watch together! —— Number 1: I photo bombed James Bond.  That’s right, a random new friend took a photo on her phone of me hanging out behind Pierce Brosnan while he chatted with author and producer Philipp Meyer. The Son – AMC Based on Philipp Meyer’s acclaimed novel, the multigenerational epic will follow two concurrent time periods: One, the story of young Eli McCullough after he is kidnapped and indoctrinated into a tribe of Comanches in 1849. The other, 60 years later, when we see a grown Eli struggle to maintain his family’s cattle empire during the turbulent Bandit Wars of South Texas. Actor Pierce Brosnan will play the role of Eli, the charismatic patriarch of the McCullough family who applies the brutal Comanche worldview to his business dealings. Born on the day Texas became an independent Republic, “The First Son of Texas” is...
