Tara + Luis | Chapel Dulcinea Elopement

I’ve been a full-time photographer for almost ten years and this gorgeous Tara is the only other Tara I’ve ever photographed!

She was the worth the wait y’all!

Tara and Luis are cute California kids residing in equally rainy Houston right now with their pup, Jolene (yep, named after the Dolly Parton song!).

Their Austin elopement went down on one of the rainiest days we’ve had this season and I was impressed by how laid back they were about the whole thing!

Tara was literally all “so yeah, I guess I’ll bring an umbrella”.

Seriously, many people would have freaked out it was torrential!

Chapel Dulcinea can be challenging in the rain for sure but like magic…..the skies lifted and we enjoyed a bit of dry weather for their portraits.

Their ceremony was officiated by the groom’s best friend and the used the good word of Mark Twain for sacrament.

This was a short but sweet ceremony and I loved Tara’s emotional response while speaking her vows!

Also, doesn’t J.J. the puppy look so happy in some of these images? Illegitimate no more!

Right now Tara and Luis are in Belize enjoying that good, good honeymoon life!

Hope those rum laced cocktails are going down smooth!

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!
