austin wedding photography

      I’m done teasing y’all with this wedding. Liz and Steven’s wedding was awesome, from their sweet first look, to the men’s toasts during their Tisch, to the intimate Ketubah signing, to the heartfelt and beautiful ceremony under the oaks at Mercury Hall… all the way to the delicious dinner, toasts and serenades from friends, and epic Bohemian Rhapsody singalong at the end of the reception.

      I’ve known Steven since we were in the third grade together, and knowing that he married such a wonderful woman makes me so happy!

      Enough talk. Here are some of my favorites from Liz and Steven’s epic-nerdy-Jewish-offbeat-Mercury-Hall wedding!

      This wedding is so beautiful and captured so beautifully. I love everything about it. That wide shot during the ceremony is such perfection.

      Wow Elissa, these are beautiful. I particularly love that first photo – the light is incredible!

      Love, love, love those papare cranes. Oh and the food… ! What a wonderful and special wedding. Beautifully captured.

      It looks like such a sweet, fun wedding. You did a great job on it. That first shot is killer.

      Yay! So much fun. I like how you have a placecard for David and Nola. Clever. :-)

      After a full day of vainly staring at these pictures I can’t get enough of them. They perfectly capture the day. The fun, the joy, the happiness, the nerdiness. The lighting is absolutely gorgeous and I really am re-experiencing the wedding. :-) I really love the pics of everyone singing Bohemian Rhapsody. LOL. And if I had to choose between all of them it would be like choosing between my fave children. They are all so perfect! :-D

      Very cool, it looks like an event to be remembered for the ages.

      Ahhh – so much JOY!!! And I love all the personal touches – seriously beautiful. Also – your attention to light and composition always floors me!

      SO MUCH FUN!!!! Thanks for ending the teasing, I love this :-)

      Love the framing against the trees. Lush.
