Meeting Oryn! | Austin Family Photographers

Last week I met nine month old Oryn, the hilarious progeny of Arianna and Jeff, and he did not disappoint!

What a ham for the camera and fun little dude!

You might remember good looking Jeff and young Parker Posey lookalike Arianna from their wedding four and a half years ago!

News flash, they are still looking super fine! I missed Arianna’s awesome smile!

Now these three amigos are kicking it in Dakar, Senegal!

Mad props to them for making the long journey from Africa with a small child, that sounds like such a challenging task for new parents.

The weather was it’s usual humid, September “is it going to rain?” confusion so we had the portrait session inside their Austin rental!

Many congrats to these two on their adorable kiddo and very safe travels home to Africa!

Come back soon!

Lindsey + Benny | Big Sky Barn Wedding

I’m hoping this comes off authentic and not too cheesy but it’s pretty freaking cool to photograph another member of a family you photographed before.

I’m sure that grammar isn’t correct but y’all it was so great to see the Goode family again! #goodtoseethegoodes

You might recognize those beautiful, large brown eyes on Lindsey!

I photographed her sister Kelsey’s wedding a while back!

This wedding took place at this rad venue near Lake Conroe called Big Sky Barn!

It’s awesome and easily one of the top places to photograph in the hot Houston summers!

The on site chapel is cute with incredible lighting with the reception hall being literally next door!

I tend not to use the word “fairytale” or “princess” with brides these days but I have a feeling Lindsey won’t mind!

Love that dancing on the bridge shot!

I love this black and white photo of Lindsey here! Also Benny is a total Chuck Bass!

Someone dug their boudoir album as a gift!

Nope, not a 50 Shades of Grey themed wedding! Lindsey and Benny did a “first touch” before the ceremony!

Chloe + Stephan | Austin Engagement Photos

It was mighty hot for an engagement session, but these two cute Houston kids made it awesome!

Aren’t they adorable? Look at Chloe’s precious, most gorgeous, wee little face?!

Norwegian born Stephan is no slouch either!

Hopefully he will find this comment positive but he reminds me of my first crush…..Marty McFly from Back to the Future!

I think it’s the hair, easy smile and boyish good looks! Not sure if he skateboards or time-travels yet…

Hopefully he can teach me how to say “whoa, Doc, this is heavy” in Norwegian!

Chloe and Stephan are getting married in November of this year and I’m truly pumped to be involved!

Mad thanks to Rosa from Austin Wedding Planners for hooking us up!

Also, Erica Gray did Chloe’s rad hair and makeup! Props yo!
