Austin Engagement & Bridal Photography | 2013

2013 was a pretty kick-ass year. I took a few more chances, used weirder light, stepped back more, got closer sometimes, and am thrilled to share some of my favorite shots from the year’s engagement, bridal, and portrait sessions.

My goal for 2014 is to get a little bit weirder, step back further, get even closer, and really bend the light. But let’s not get ahead of ourselves. Here is some of what I consider my best work from 2013. (Later this week I will share my favorite wedding images, so stay tuned!)

Katie & Phil | Butler Park Engagement Session

Katie and Phil are such sweet people, and they’re getting married¬†this weekend! I’m so excited to share their wedding photos with you soon. But first, a few frames from our engagement session together earlier this month. Austin was uncharacteristically pleasant so our session in Butler Park was a breeze!

Cabo.

Honestly, the blog post for today was not supposed to be Cabo — it was supposed to be my 2013 round-up — but I’m still kind of in beach mode and I just want to think about the beautiful place I just left. So here is an excessive amount of paradise photos. (Taken with a Canon EOS M and my iPhone.)
