Elizabeth + Guhan | Austin Indian Wedding

Forgive me if this blog post seems a little disjointed!

There were so many photos I wanted to post but would make this thing like 8 pages long!

Elizabeth and Guhan had both an Indian wedding and a western wedding at 800 Congress in June!

The Indian ceremony took place in the morning followed by a tasty lunch and the western ceremony took place in the early evening.

Both ceremonies were unbelievable!

As some of y’all might already know, my husband and I eloped in India five years ago next month and Indian ceremonies will always be my favorite.

This wedding also had some of the best food I’ve ever seen at a wedding with caterers including Perla’s, Elizabeth Street, and Lambert’s!

I couldn’t believe how many people were still raging on the dance floor towards the end of the day!

So much energy!

This shin dig was held together by the powerhouse that is Gina Whittington of The Whitt Experience!

Other amazing vendors involved include the following!

Rentals : Whim Hospitality

Indian Caterer : Suprabhat

Caterer : MMH Catering

Lighting : Ilios

Steve Ackley - Tara,

You did a fantastic job capturing so many special moments.
All through the day you were a delight to work with.
What a joy,

Thank you,


Hannah + Sheldon | Vintage Villas Wedding

These two are in serious love y’all!

Married for only a year, Hannah and Sheldon wanted to do it all over again with a vow renewal ceremony at Vintage Villas!

It was a hot day in August but these two were troopers and made it so fun for me!

Hannah is a blonde with this amazing laugh of a smile and was wonderful to photograph.

Sheldon was such a gracious event host and you can see nothing but kindness in his face.

Vintage Villas had amazing food per usual (that chicken piccata is unreal) and it was my first time there since they redesigned the main hall layout. So much more room now!

Also isn’t that blue uplighting awesome?

While everyone started out in their fancy clothes, after the sun went down many people changed into something a bit more casual for dancing!

Nice to have the hotel right next door!

Hannah and Sheldon make their home in the highly underrated city of Omaha, Nebraska and I know they had a blast coming back to Texas.

May the next year of your marriage be just as wonderful as the first and many congrats!



Hannah had her two sisters walk her down the aisle since her dad got to last time.

I love this black and white image because you can see Hannah’s dad’s hand on her mom back bringing her in closer despite the heat.

Katherine + Jonathan | Northeast Wedding Chapel Wedding

It’s finally happening…..

I finally blogged Kat and Jonathan’s wedding photos! (Cheers ensue)

You probably recognize Kat’s ginger hair and round brown eyes by now, this is my fourth time photographing her!

These two crazy kids met online, fell in love and were married in May at the Northeast Wedding Chapel!

Despite being close to my high school place of employment, this was my very first Northeast Wedding Chapel wedding and it did not disappoint.

The chapel itself was large and spacious with lots of gorgeous natural light and the courtyard was very appealing as well!

There were many wonderful moments during this day but one of my favorites was their last private dance together to Sam Smith’s acoustic version of Latch.

So great, so romantic!

Many congrats to these two!
