Bruce & Jose | Austin Engagement Session

gay engagement session

Jose had flown in from LA and wanted the entire Austin experience. Bruce took him to Jo’s for coffee and breakfast tacos, then we went to the lakeside and checked out the skyline. We finished the session at the Texas Capitol with Texas Forever shirts during a veteran’s rally — a fitting end, they said, because both men are in the service.

Throughout the session, we were slowed down by joggers on the hike & bike trail who wanted to high-five and congratulate the couple on their engagement. Joggers stopped to compliment Bruce and Jose on their matching Love Conquers Hate t-shirts and many more gave thumbs-up. This is the Texas I know: vibrant, happy, tolerant, and proud.

Amy & Justin | Austin Greenbelt Engagement Session

“This is so gorgeous,” Amy sighed, as she and Justin crunched through fallen leaves along the Barton Creek Greenbelt. “I wish we had something like this in Dallas.” The two had come down to rock climb some of the well-known rock faces — Justin brought along a heavy bag of rope — and also to get their engagement photos taken in the nature that they loved.

We found a little pocket of Greenbelt that wasn’t too popular and took advantage of the lovely scenery and unusually warm February sun. Love!!

Austin Musician Photos | Sammie Zonana

live authentic

I don’t get asked to do non-wedding portraits that often, but when I do it’s always a treat — especially if your client is the incredible musician and singer Sammie Zonana. I heard her voice and knew immediately that I wanted to buy all of her records. Amazingly, this talented lady is going to be a contestant on The Voice — which means that I’m going to tune in for the first time ever on the 27th! We shot at Laguna Gloria when the lake was drained, which made for the most unique and dusty beach I’ve seen in Austin. So glad for the opportunity and I will be keeping tabs on Sammie’s undoubtedly upward career trajectory.
