Dusin & Robin Wedding | Austin, Texas | Life Austin Chapel

I had the great opportunity to photograph Dustin and Robin's wedding on a gorgeous, sunny Friday afternoon at the end of October in Austin. The day could not have been more perfect. They chose @LifeAustinChapel to have their ceremony and it is a beautiful chapel that sits on the edge of the hill country. The chapel sits on a large piece of land that is dotted with lots of oak trees and whispy, golden grass. Upon arrival, I snuck into the bridal suite to get some shots of the girls getting ready curling their hair and doing finishing touches to their makeup. All was calm and bright which is always a good sign. I dashed over to the groom's suite to get Dustin putting his finishing touches on with bow tie shots and the guys attempting to put the Boutonnières on which was very cute. The ceremony ran seamlessly and was really beautiful. After the ceremony, we photographed the families together and then had to do a few of Dustin and Robin alone outside with that fall hill country scenery. Their love shines through on all the photos and I love photographing love! After we finished the photos, it was time to get the party started so we headed to the reception @Eberly. Everyone turned it up a notch at the reception and the fun was had by all! The room was filled with friends, family, laughter, dancing and drinking. A perfect ending to a perfect day.

Lifestyle Sibling Shoot | Bali & Dylan | Downtown Austin, TX

I've been photographing these little nuggets since practically their birth. They have grown into such beautiful, sweet teenagers and I love photographing them every year. The name and age tshirts have become a tradition and we joke about at what year they'll out grow them but not this year! This year I love how the red, black and white tshirts pop off of the black and white mural down at Seaholm and mixed right in with the giant red and white picnic table down there, too. After they changed into their dressier outfits, you know we had to utilize the mini 360 bridge at sunset! It's definitely a challenge to get that shot on a Saturday late afternoon in November. There was a line for all the families doing fall photos to be photographed. Grab your glass of vino and snack and kick back and watch Bali and Dylan's music video.

Blake + Karissa | Austin TX Surprise Wedding Proposal | Lou Neff Point

Oh my goodness! This was so exciting to be a part of! Blake and I worked out all the details before hand to try and make this proposal perfect for Karissa. I felt like an under cover agent working on a top secret project with this surprise proposal. Originally, he had wanted to propose to her at Zilker Park because that is where they first told each other that they loved each other (cue the kleenex). Unfortunately, ACL threw a kink in our plan and Zilker Park was still fenced off from all the concert festivities so he made a plan B to do it at Lou Neff Point. Lou Neff Point is where Ladybird Lake and Barton Springs meet and there's a nice look out with an amazing view of the city. We met earlier in the week to work out our parking situation (thank you @Chuy's) and time the walk over to the point! On the day of, I arrived earlier and got situated in my hidden spot behind an electric pole and apparently some poison ivy, too. Eek. I made sure to clear the people out of the area a few minutes before they arrived. I didn't want anything to spoil this proposal. I moved about 6-8 people out of the way...crackin' that whip! I think they all went and sat up above to view the whole thing. :)) Blake and Karissa arrived right on time and as they walked over Blake gave me a side eye to check to make sure I was ready. Karissa had no idea and he took her over to the spot with the perfect view of Austin behind them and proceeded to pour his heart out and get down on one knee. It was SO exciting especially when Karissa said yes. All the strangers up above that were secretly watching the proposal happen from afar started cheering loudly when Karissa said yes. I hopped out of the bushes and moved closer to get some up close shots. So, without further adieu grab a pumpkin spiced latte and kick back and watch their sweet, sweet proposal.

Lifestyle Senior Shoot | Caden | Austin High

I photographed Caden downtown @Butler Park for his senior session and he knocked it out of the park. Haha! Pun intended. As the sun started to set, we walked over to the Lamar bridge and got some really good shots of him there. He had a little bit of a James Dean vibe happening. Kick back and check out his video.
