Alyson + Matt | Hyde Park Engagement

Alyson and Matt live in an adorable house in Hyde Park and wanted to start their engagement session there!

These Baylor alums (and their adorable kitty Manuel) didn’t disappoint!

I loved this Hyde Park engagement session!

Per usual, Lauren from Hint of Shimmer did a killer job on Alyson’s already gorgeous face!

Melissa + Chad | Pecan Springs Ranch Wedding

“And that’s why birds do it,
Bees do it,
Even educated fleas do it,
Let’s do it, let’s fall in love……”

These two brilliant New Yorkers had a killer Pecan Springs Ranch wedding last month!

Melissa and Chad met on OK Cupid (like many of my couples!) and it was a terrific match from the get go!

Their wedding was officiated by Chad’s cousin, Joe, and was so unbelievably tender and mindful.

Like every weekend this year, it rained cats and dogs but we were still able to have a bit of portraits and the ceremony outside!

The incredible first dance was to “Let’s Do it” and it did not disappoint.

I’ve been a sappy one this year but Chad’s first dance with his mom to “The Rainbow Connection” had me full on bawling.

The Kermit that joined them surely enjoyed it as well.

Melissa and Chad were amazing to be around and the day was simply magic! Much, much love!

Incredible peeps involved with this day include the following!

Natalie + Bryan | Austin Engagement Photographers

Looking at this engagement session, I think it would be hard to tell that these two had had a super rough day!

Beaten down from doing residencies, planning a wedding from afar, extensive day-of traveling, and then getting into a car accident usually doesn’t make for cute photos!

I am shocked and honored by how much energy they saved for me!

Natalie and Bryan were so much fun and we had a great time quoting Zoolander together!

I’m so pumped about photographing your Southwest School of Art San Antonio wedding next year!

Thank you both!
