Bruce & José | W Austin Wedding

w austin hotel wedding

Soul mates. From their first date five years ago, to their long-distance relationship for three years (the two men are in two separate branches of the military), to their clandestine Vegas rendezvous, culminating with the big wedding in Austin a year later, Bruce and José have been through so much together. Gathering with friends and family in the posh W Austin downtown, done up in Vegas style, was the perfect party to celebrate their love.

Bruce and José also invited friends and delegates from the Special Olympics of Texas to give a speech and raise donations for the organization. The couple was able to raise over $2000!

This wedding was full of delights: a rooftop ceremony. A Love is Love cake, the cutting of which was emcee’d by a drag queen. Two mothers delighted with their new son-in-laws — one of whom is excited that there’s “finally a doctor in the family.” And through it all, two handsome grooms totally in love and dancing the night away.

Cassie & David | Austin Greenbelt Engagement Session

artistic wedding photography austin

It’s always an honor to be asked by other creatives to photograph their weddings — but even moreso when another wedding photographer you’ve worked alongside before requests that you shoot their wedding! I’ve known Cassie for years and am thrilled that I’ll get to see her marry her beloved, David, this fall. Quiet, jovial, and always up for adventure, these two hiked through the Austin Greenbelt with me and climbed to the top of Mount Bonnell. I can’t wait for their wedding in a few months!

Regan & Peter | Mercury Hall Wedding

I know, it’s been a spell since I’ve updated this blog. But look at the pretty that I’m sharing now! Regan and Peter’s wedding in early June was sweet, soulful, and fun. With a custom macrame backdrop for their ceremony, Micklethwait BBQ, and a few familiar faces (Peter and I realized at the consultation that he knew my sister!), this wedding hit all the right spots.

(And as a bonus, I was way too excited by all the awesome bow and bolo ties worn at this wedding! The father of the bride wore a bow tie made of feathers. A little compilation here!)
