Brianna + Nick | Renaissance Hotel Austin Wedding

Brianna booked me for this wonderfully emotional Renaissance Hotel Austin wedding over a year before the big day!

Nick and her made it worth the wait! Loved these two!

Brianna and Nick met at Freddy’s Frozen Custard where they literally worked ONE shift together, met, and fell in love!

This was a super spiritual ceremony and I loved how they truly seem fated to be!

The decor was that perfect shade of bright purple with magenta uplighting and SPARKLES!

Brianna was a cheerleader for years and chose comfy cheer shoes for dancing in! I loved them!

Their ceremony was a brunch time wedding (mmmmm, brunch……..) so afterwards we went to the adorable Freddy’s Frozen Custard in Cedar Park for additional portraits!

Thank you both so much again! Enjoy this sneak peek!

Estefania + Chase | Austin Engagement Photographers

Aren’t these two adorable? Seriously, I could eat them up!

So don’t judge me if you’re going to hate, but I can’t stop thinking how much Estefania looks like Elena Gilbert from the Vampire Diaries!

Mixed with some S. American sass!

While I was shooting these super lovely peeps, I kept thinking….I’m totally shooting the Petrova doppleganger y’all!

Hopefully Estefania is a fan as well! She seems to big a huge fan of the very handsome Chase!

These Houston kids met in high school but didn’t get together until college at UT.

We loved hanging and see all the new spots on SoCo. Austin is always changing it seems!

Estefania and Chase are getting married at the amazing Barr Mansion! It’s going to be a great time!

Thanks so much for driving out to shoot with me on a work night! You guys are awesome!

Sabrina + David | Hoffman Haus Wedding

Continuing my very enjoyable streak of beautiful, gracious and blond brides comes this Hoffman Haus wedding in Fredericksburg!

Sabrina and David were married on Valentine’s day!

When Sabrina reached out to me it was crazy! We actually knew each other in junior high and hadn’t seen each other in (cough, cough) many, many years!

It was amazing to reunite, get to know her again and enjoy the person that she has become. Truly.

David is a gregarious, handsome fellow with some seriously wonderful daughters!

His enthusiastic love for Sabrina and the happy faces he gave all day makes me so sure these two have some killer years ahead!

This ceremony had several great elements to it with Sabrina surprising David by a live performance of their song! Like not a cover, the real artist performing their song!

Check out Eric Wilson’s work here! Their song is “Lavender”. So freaking pretty!

Sabrina also gave David’s two daughters these amazing necklaces symbolic of the fact that she was not only marrying their dad, but also them.

Not a dry eye in sight y’all………..

It’s not easy blending families and I cannot imagine it being easy to become a stepmother to daughters but it was so obvious how much they genuinely love her.

This was probably one of the teariest weddings I’ve ever shot! Even I was choked up by how sweet the toasts were and I hear lovely toasts all the time!

Many, many, many congrats to these two!!! Much love!! xoxoxo
