Alisha + Nick | Engagement Photographers Austin

Yes, it’s true, I’m obsessed with the Austin skyline!

I love, love, love seeing it everyday and truly get excited about city life!

Alisha and Nick were Austinites until January of this year when Nick took a position in Seattle.

They are loving life in Seattle but definitely missing the ATX.

Thankfully they’ll be back a bit more before their wedding at Allan House in December!

Alisha and Nick flew back for their engagement session with yours truly and although it was windy, the weather was stunning!

Despite the traveling, these two were bright eyed, smiley and full of laughter!

Also, don’t you adore Alisha hair?

Makes me want to go blonde so hard!

Thank you so much for coming back for this portrait shoot!

Many, many congrats to you both!

Christina + Fermin | Wedding Lady Bird Wildflower Center

I always adore photographing weddings at the sublime Lady Bird Johnson Wildflower Center!

We had the most incredible weather that day as well!

This was my first time meeting Christina and Fermin and y’all…..these are wonderful people!

It’s unbearably cliche’ to say someone’s smile can light up the room, but Christina rocks a high voltage smile!

The outdoor ceremony took place near sunset and the wonderful wooden altar was built by Fermin himself!

To thank a few vendors I worked with…….

Alicia Collins held this show together! Always great to see her again!

Rosemary’s Catering served up some seriously tasty dins!

As if she wasn’t the coolest already, Christina made her own flowers for her wedding!

Aneysa Moreno from Rebel Beauty perfected Christina’s already wonderful face and hair!

DJ Aaron Ward kept this party bumping!

The toast made at this wedding were so emotional that I even choked up a bit.

Lots of great dancing on this fun night and a party bus to escape in!

This couple had their after party at Whisler’s on Austin’s East side!

Many, many, many congrats to Christina and Fermin!

C + M | Hotel Van Zandt Wedding

Happy Valentine’s Day to everyone but especially to C and M!

They had a sweet, small wedding here in Austin about two weeks ago!

First off, if you aren’t into photos of adorable dogs, leave while you still can.

C and M’s heartbreakingly precious King Cavalier spaniel, Oliver, is all over this blog post!

The couple began the afternoon of their wedding at the lush Hotel Van Zandt near the infamous Rainey street.

One of the best things about Kimpton hotels is their animal friendly policy!

I’m sure Oliver was thrilled to be included!

One of M’s oldest friends, M, was made an officiant the week before and met us at the hotel for the pilgrimage to Chapel Dulcinea.

It was almost pitch black by the 7pm slot and we caught a shooting star!

The ceremony only lasted a few brief minutes but was enjoyed by all!

I was honored to be their witness on the legal documents. : )

Many, many, many congrats to this family of three!
