There isn’t much like the beauty of young love… Amber + Andrew are so genuine. They love so hard, yet have so much potential they’ll fill in years to come. It’s incredible to see… then I met their families, and realized they’d both come from some amazing families who love hard, too.
These musicians had not only that perfectly classic look… we could have plucked them from the pages of a magazine… but they curated that intimate, meaningful ceremony that most people dream of… followed by dinner, dancing, and a groom with a saxophone. I mean, really <3

Thanks to a fantastic set of vendors who helped make this day so beautiful:

Some wedding days get off without a hitch… those days are unicorns, though. Most wedding days have some variable that goes the way you wish it wouldn’t… it all comes down to how the bride and groom handle the situation.
When I realized it was going to rain on Susan + Jake’s wedding day, I packed umbrellas and rain boots, just in case, but trusted the weather forecast that all rain would pass well before their ceremony.

But we live in Texas. If you don’t like the weather, wait a minute…

The massive thunderstorm that popped up while Susan was getting her makeup done looked as though it would head right toward us… and rain it’s tears right onto their ceremony. The couple had dreamed of an outdoor ceremony at Ma Maison’s gorgeous Green Cathedral, but fortunately Susan + Jake hired Tracy Collins and her dream team , and Tracy jumped into action getting an elaborate backup plan rolling to have the ceremony under the Trellis.

The rain began to pour the moment Susan stepped foot down the aisle… but to see Jake’s face, you would never know this “backup plan” mattered one little bit <3

Every little detail in place, this wedding day had a well-seasoned team of professional vendors who pulled out all the stops and made everything literally picture-perfect. Thank you SO much to every single person who had a hand in pulling this off… to Susan + Jake for trusting me to capture the day that made you married… and to Susan’s wonderful family who were so incredibly kind and supportive throughout what could have been a very stressful day for Susan. This couple has some amazing people standing behind them!

The love these two share… is incredible. But their plan for the day tugged at my heart, because their wants were so similar to what I needed from my own wedding. Simple, family-focused, surrounded by the people they love, and who love them… after Callan walked down the aisle, their guests filled in the gap to surround our bride + groom with support.

I adore this couple. Some day I’ll get around to showing off their engagement session… but for now, check out their beautiful wedding day.

Special thanks to everyone who made this day so incredible, including:

Thistle Springs Ranch

Anais Anette Gowns

Kristin Nastoupli + Ashley Lopez of Pretty You Artistry

When Olivia asked me to shoot her wedding, I was beyond ecstatic. A true New-England-in-the-fall wedding is something every photographer would love. But when it’s family? Oh yes. Olivia + Kyle hosted me in San Diego last summer when I was working on the west coast for a few days, and it was so obvious how they are made for each other, and have cultivated a beautiful partnership.

So when Hurricane Matthew made his appearance off the Eastern Seaboard and threatened to rain out their wedding day… it was no surprise that their faces still showed nothing but pure joy. In a world where I see so many people get upset about weather that is outside of our control, these two partied like they’d just been married, and it was the happiest day ever.

I have a lot of emotion wrapped up in this one… a beyond stunning bride, an incredibly handsome groom, guests huddled together under tiny pavilion, committed to supporting this union. It’s what a wedding should be, rain and all. blog_test2_proofing_01 blog_test2_proofing_02 blog_test2_proofing_03 blog_test2_proofing_04 blog_test2_proofing_05 blog_test2_proofing_06 blog_test2_proofing_07 blog_test2_proofing_08 blog_test2_proofing_09 blog_test2_proofing_10 blog_test2_proofing_11 blog_test2_proofing_12 blog_test2_proofing_13 blog_test2_proofing_14 blog_test2_proofing_15 blog_test2_proofing_16 blog_test2_proofing_17 blog_test2_proofing_18 blog_test2_proofing_19 blog_test2_proofing_20 blog_test2_proofing_21 blog_test2_proofing_22 blog_test2_proofing_23 blog_test2_proofing_24 blog_test2_proofing_25 blog_test2_proofing_26 blog_test2_proofing_27 blog_test2_proofing_28 blog_test2_proofing_29 blog_test2_proofing_30 blog_test2_proofing_31 blog_test2_proofing_32 blog_test2_proofing_33 blog_test2_proofing_34 blog_test2_proofing_35 blog_test2_proofing_36 blog_test2_proofing_37 blog_test2_proofing_38 blog_test2_proofing_39 blog_test2_proofing_40 blog_test2_proofing_42 blog_test2_proofing_43 blog_test2_proofing_44 blog_test2_proofing_45 blog_test2_proofing_46 blog_test2_proofing_47 blog_test2_proofing_48 blog_test2_proofing_49 blog_test2_proofing_50 blog_test2_proofing_51 blog_test2_proofing_52 blog_test2_proofing_53 blog_test2_proofing_54 blog_test2_proofing_55 blog_test2_proofing_56 blog_test2_proofing_57

We flew up to Boston last month to celebrate Olivia + Kyle’s wedding, and made a vacation out of the week in the Northeast. These kids took me to a super cool spot called Purgatory Chasm to climb around and shoot some yay-we’re-about-to-get-married photos… I love it so much, I went back twice during my stay in Massachusetts.

SERIOUSLY THOUGH:

When I met Amy + Jonathan for their engagement session , I knew their wedding day was going to be tons of fun. And then I walked in, and realized there was a DONUT BAR… and I considered asking Amy to just marry ME instead 😉

I was invited into this family’s home just before their move to a new town… watching them was truly magical. The relationships between these siblings, the love mom + dad share and show to their babies… witnessing these moments reminded me just how good life can be.
I wish I could gift everyone a family with the strength and bond these 6 share. At the very least, I can show you what this kind of love looks like in a photograph. I owe a huge thank you to this beautiful family for allowing me into their life for a brief moment, for trusting me to experience their world, and to hold for them the images of the place they called home from the beginning.

You might remember Ann + Will’s engagement session… their wedding wast just as much fun. Married under the oaks surrounding Hamilton Twelve, the day was gorgeous and all the little details fell perfectly into place.
Special thanks to my second shooter, Amy Zumwalt.

Amy + Jonathan are getting married in October up in Dallas, but jumped at the chance to meet me here in Austin for a mini-vacation while shooting their engagement session.

They’re so much fun to be around… and like very much the same things I do… so we shot a bit a Laguna Gloria (because #art), then hit Vintage Heart Coffee (because #caffeine), then split for dinner and met back up at Bull Creek for hiking in the sunset (because #duh).
