Kelly & Joseph | I Luv Video Engagement Session

i luv video austin

Whenever couples and I discuss engagement session locations, it’s usually a matter of what places are important to you? not just what places do you think would make a good backdrop? Joseph and Kelly check movies out of the (very) Austin video-rental spot, I Luv Video, and they often eat at Komé Sushi on Airport. So we made a little date out of it. Indoor photos during the hot summer months? Check. Some warm sake sipped throughout an air-conditioned engagement session? Check. Two laughing, smiling, happy people making photos in places that are near and dear to them? Check, check! Super excited about seeing these two again this fall for their wedding!

Julia & Dante | Wildflower Center Wedding

Believe me when I say I am a little infatuated with this wedding. Julia and Dante held their wedding at the Lady Bird Johnson Wildflower Center during — apparently — our rainy season. Droplets pattered down throughout the day and rearranged their table plans, but it was a joyful celebration. Family and friends watched Julia and Dante exchange vows safely indoors, away from the wet; they dined family-style on the covered porch outside, and enjoyed dancing and flower-painted macarons through the night.

Everything was beautiful; be sure to scroll to the end for a list of amazing vendors. If you are friends or family of Julia and Dante, you can view their photos here.

Aintzane & Lee | Camp Lucy Wedding

After Aintzane was buttoned up into her wedding gown, her mother teared up and embraced her. Her soon-to-be sister-in-law presented her with an heirloom ring from Lee’s family, and they too teared up and embraced. Before stepping out of the door to see Lee for the first time in their respective wedding splendor, Aintzane asked me to not only capture their first look, but her bridesmaids’ and relatives’ reaction to their first look as well.

And I feel like that is a good way to describe the people that Aintzane and Lee are: they are so in love, they were so excited to see each other, but their wedding day wasn’t just about them — it was the inclusiveness of becoming a bigger and closer family. Aintzane’s relatives came from Spain, and those who couldn’t make it showed up in a video presentation during their reception toasts. The couple invited one of their favorite bands from Ohio, Von Stomper, to dine with them and then entertain them on the dance floor. And though their mainecoon, Mr. Butters, wasn’t at the wedding, these cat people (my people!) had little kitty touches: a cat cake topper, cat place card holders.

The day was beautiful, it was sweet, it was full of tears and laughter, singing and vigorous dancing. It was magical.
