Ireland Adventures – Galway & Cliffs of Moher

Ireland Adventures – Galway & Cliffs of Moher

Travel is my love language…along with tacos, but that’s for another day.  I am so thankful to have the time and flexibility (yea for the best husband and grandparents ever) to travel to Ireland with one of my closest friends, Anna!  We had 4 days and 5 nights to explore one of my all-time favorite countries: Ireland!  Since we’ve both been before and had already done certain areas we found that neither of us had made it to the west coast and planned to head straight for Galway after landing in Dublin.  We took a bus (for 10 euro!!) from the Dublin bus station (yea for Bus Eireann….and for anyone wanting to do the same, make sure to take the EXPRESS bus to Galway and not the local. We know from experience, trust me you don’t want 4.5 hours of roundabouts in a bus.) and arrived during a festival celebrating Galway and their excitement over being the designated the European Capital of Culture 2020.   After 3 days, I can see why they were chosen and have fallen in love with Galway!  In another lifetime, I would move there right away, set up shop and become besties with our Airbnb host who just happened to be a dancer IN RIVERDANCE.  That’s right, I tried so hard not to fangirl when we met her and for those who know me, know it was hard not to ask to try on her shoes and perform my ‘routine’.  Seriously though, Riverdance.  She’s living my other dream life 🙂  Gillian, if you’re somehow finding this and you & sweet Michael get married in the near...
Texas Hill Country Engagement Photos – Brian & Jill

Texas Hill Country Engagement Photos – Brian & Jill

Cheers to Brian & Jill!  What a wonderful evening meeting these two and getting to document their engagement at one of their favorite Austin locations, the awesome Jester King Brewery just west of town on the way to Dripping Springs!  I’ve been a few times and love the atmosphere of hanging out, enjoying craft beer and amazing pizza from Stanley’s Farmhouse Pizza (The Sparky is my favorite…prosciutto, caramelized onions and truffle oil…yum!).  The humidity and heat of a July evening didn’t bother this Louisiana and Florida native as we wandered the grounds, toasted to their wedding day and enjoyed the sunset that only the Texas Hill Country can produce! Thank you Brian & Jill for a fun evening, I enjoyed getting to hear your love story and wish you all the best on your adventures together!  Congratulations!!!   xoxo, Jessica We met up on a Friday night new-brew release night and it was packed!

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!
