Amanda + Jon | Justine’s Secret House Wedding

Amanda and Jon’s wedding at Justine’s Secret House was definitely one of the most stunning I’ve photographed in recent history!

Don’t get me wrong, I’ve photographed a lot of beautiful weddings, but this Justine’s Secret House wedding was incredible.

The venue itself is a small coral house (probably 1930s era if I had to guess) hidden by a large, fairytale vined fence.

A tiny courtyard lends itself to a ceremony site and palm trees provide some shade.

The main interior is painted a bright red with gold framed artwork, peacocks and a piano.

I really loved the gigantic Rembrandt reproductions that were put outside to show thru the windows.

It’s gorgeous and perfectly complemented Amanda’s brocade dress from Anthropologie.

The ceremony itself was a quick ordeal and officiated by Jon’s lovely father.

A tasty buffet was provided and Voodoo Donuts were served in lieu of cake!

The night was intimate, romantic and full of champagne!

Many, many congrats to these two!




I think I need to get out a bit more, putting this Rembrandt next to this photo of Amanda and Jon kissing is making me laugh a bit too hard!


Laura + Arash | SFA Intercontinental Hotel Austin Wedding

The unfairly adorable Laura and the handsome Arash got married last month at the Stephen F. Austin Intercontinental Hotel in downtown Austin!

Laura and Arash had a combination of a Western and Persian wedding ceremony and it did not disappoint!

Check out this super sumptuous sofreh full of treats, candles, flowers, pearls and a mirror to top it off!

I enjoyed learning some of the traditions involved in a Persian wedding!

This wedding was a blast to photograph and full of tears and laughter!

Anyone else do that thing where if you see someone cry, you cry? Yeah, that was me all day!

Between Laura’s sister Becca and her dad….not a dry eye in sight!

The dance floor was on fire all night and these two snuck out in a pedicab following their sparkler exit!

Many congrats to these two!
