Aubrey & Mike | East Austin Engagement Session

When I met with Aubrey and Mike at the Capitol building, I gave a small whistle at their appearance: Mike, neat and polished in his Marine service uniform; Aubrey, stylish in a svelte black 1940s-style dress, looked like screen actors in a vintage film. “I know, right?” Aubrey said, touching him lightly on the chest. “He cleans up good.”

 We wandered all over the Capitol grounds and parts of East Austin. I’m so excited about their wedding this summer!

Laguna Gloria Wedding

Laguna Gloria is a hidden Austin gem: so close to the city center, yet set near a calm river’s edge. A sanctuary full of flowers, art sculptures, and immaculately-shaped trees, Laguna Gloria is the perfect spot to host a wedding, and last spring I was lucky enough to join Caitlin McWeeney there. With the roses in bloom, a long and epic tablescape near the riverside edge covered in garlands, and a bounty of champagne and tacos, this was one fabulous wedding. I’d love to photograph another one there in the near future!

Bailey & Jordan | Allan House Wedding

It’s the little things: Bailey calling Jordan minutes before the ceremony, because she wanted to hear his voice before she walked down the aisle towards him. Jordan, holding Bailey’s dress train so that it didn’t get dirty. Koozies with drawings of their French bulldogs; cake toppers with their likeness and their dogs’ likenesses too.

That February Saturday shone with good weather — so good, the winter tent at Allan House wasn’t really required, but it warded off the chill once the sun set. This wedding was warm with love, bright with Stems florals, and delicious with multiple Polkadots cakes. What I loved even more than Bailey and Jordan’s obvious care for one another was their humor; every so often I’d catch them making silly faces at one another. Congratulations to these two lovely humans for getting hitched!
