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!

Minju | Musician Headshots Austin

This fine looking woman is about drop her debut solo album!

Minju Choi is a Juilliard trained, Korean-American pianist and general badass!

Currently I’m listening to her work on her website and feeling like I’m living my most poignant life ever!

Her album, “Boundless” will be released in November this year and feature three solo piano works by three diverse American composers: Gabriela Lena Frank, Ching-chu Hu, and Philip Lasser.

 The common theme of the album is that these works are by composers that were born in the U.S. and are Americans, but are all of different ethnic backgrounds.

Most of their music is influenced by their various heritages.

The composer Hu wrote a song called “Pulse” for Minju that is inspired by the physical and emotional heart.

I can’t wait to check that one out y’all!

This was a great session and I absolutely adored seeing Minju again (I photographed her sister’s wedding and family)!

Many, many congrats on the upcoming album and don’t forget about us little people!
