Joanna & Amaury | Intimate Austin Wedding

simple lace wedding dress for outdoor ceremony

In every wedding, I see a tiny piece of my own marriage reflected back at me. Whether it’s the same reading during the ceremony (we had e.e. cummings recited at ours, and it’s a favorite among some of my couples), similar style choices or cake flavor choices or backgrounds, I always feel a little echo of my own wedding and relationship. For Joanna and Amaury’s wedding, it was definitely the feel of the celebration: small-ish, international — the groom’s family was from France — and, I don’t know, just the joy of it all.

Joanna and Amaury were wed at the top of a hill in a tiny chapel, and both bride and groom wept happily when they first saw their beloved at the other end of the aisle. While their multilingual guests drove out to a rented house for the reception, we hung back and took a few photos with a fancy Cobra roadster (borrowed from a family member). The reception in the backyard was lovely: tables dragged halfway into the shade, champagne, and a fun dance party. It was a lively afternoon celebration and I loved being a part of it.

Vanessa & Jerry | Sekrit Theater Session

Vanessa and Jerry got married ten (!!!) years ago on Maui, and wanted to commemorate their decade-long anniversary with a session in Austin. They chose Sekrit Theater specifically for the beautiful greenhouse and then we made our way over to downtown for photos with their two pups. A sweet couple and sweet doggos, what more could you ask for? Though the sky threatened rain a little, it didn’t do much but drizzle on us, and made for cool, moody light in the Sekrit greenhouse, so I’m happy.

Here’s to more years with your beloved and your doggos!

Austin Wedding Photographer | Best of 2018

Yeah, I know that it’s almost March and I’m finally getting this post up. Shhh.

2018 I began experimenting a bit and creating more “weird” photos. I really enjoyed taking some risks and will continue to do so this coming year. If you want any weird portraits of yourself, hit me up.
