Shannon + Ashley | University of Texas Graduation Portraits

These two gorgeous sisters, Shannon and Ashley, graduated this Spring from the University of Texas here in Austin!

Both whip smart (biology and chemistry majors respectively) they are bound to have an awesome post-grad life!

I adored seeing them interact with each other and I’m still finding glitter from those last few shots!

Thank you both so much again!

Tracy + Jeff | Camp Lucy Wedding

Tracy and Jeff’s Camp Lucy wedding took place on a beautiful (finally not raining!!) day in April!

You might remember this gorgeous Louisiana girl and her handsome Texas fiance’ from their Houston engagement session last year!

Tracy and Jeff’s wedding was absolutely perfect and they ran off for their Greek honeymoon the very next day!

So romantic!

#prudonforthenguyen indeed!

There were some seriously great vendors involved for this unforgettable wedding!

The epic Camp Lucy | Sacred Oaks set the scene for a great day!

My amigos from Moonlit Films documented this thing!

My name twin Tara Blackwell from Whim Hospitality  kept this bad boy on track!

Whim also provided the tasty taste, rentals, and even the rad floral design! Go Whim!

That killer cake was created by Classic Cakes by Lori!

Unique Style Productions provided the sick jams!

Taylor Swift head and hilarious photo booth images by Envog Photo Booth!

Tracy’s look was completed by Laura Martinez Makeup and Glitter Knockout!

Hanneke + Andrew | Austin Wildflower Center Wedding

I know, I know, it’s been too long since I posted an Austin Wildflower Center wedding!

The Wildflower Center was full in bloom with bluebonnets, Indian paintbrushes and other amazing local flowers.

Hanneke and Andrew are super cool kids and currently live in Cambodia for Hanneke’s job.

Hanneke works for World Food Programme in Siem Reap and probably changes lives on the reg!

International living/traveling is a big part of their relationship and the couple got engaged in Johannesburg, South Africa.

These two had an incredibly diverse wedding with people coming from all around the globe!

It was great to see new faces living it up here in Austin!

Heavenly Day Events kept this wedding on track!

My amigo Anthony from Greenbelt DJ provided the Hanson (yep, MMMbop Hanson!) and Madonna laced soundtrack!

Royal Fig provided the killer catering!

Many congrats to these two!
