Jacob & Katie: Westridge Stables Spicewood Springs Engagement

jacob-and-kathleen-austin-hill-country-advendure-engagement-photos-016

We met Jacob and Katie through Jacob’s company Lone Star Wake Rentals. Jacob takes people out on the Austin area lakes to have a good time. I don’t know that I’ve ever seen a better job fit. About half way through their engagement session I looked at Katie and said “I assume Jacob was always the class clown?” The answer was a resounding “yes!”

Needless to say, Katie and Jacob’s engagement session at Westridge Stables was a lot of fun. The property is huge and we spent the afternoon roaming around it looking for photos. We even made some creative use of our Polaris transport under the milky way..

Nancy and Jose: Wedding at Tenroc Ranch in Salado, TX

Nancy and Jose at Tenroc in Salado

Nancy and Jose were married at the beautiful St. Stephen Catholic Church in Salado, TX.  The ceremony was traditional and elegant.  The couple was poised and full of smiles, beaming at one another as the officiant addressed them, as well as their family and friends.

From the moment they stepped through the threshold, it changed from the traditional and spiritual Catholic ceremony to an all-out celebration.  The freshly wed couple and their guests made their way to gorgeous Tenroc Ranch to begin the festivities.  There were beautiful, emotional dances but things really got interesting during the bouquet toss and the blindfolded garter toss.  The couple was lifted off their feet, carried around by their wedding party and after a few minutes of the festive (and potentially dangerous!) ring around the couple, the game ended with lots of laughter (and no injuries, thankfully!) and dancing, oh and we can’t forget the delicious, self-catered food.

Posh Events and Jenny’s Florals were responsible for making the event custom tailored for Nancy and Jose’s style, and the event hall looked beautiful.

Nancy and Jose were the epitome of happiness on this night, and we wish them that throughout their lives together.

Joseph and Sara: Horseshoe Bay Wedding

20160322__AF13962

We have been eagerly anticipating Joseph and Sara’s wedding.  Their Hill Country Engagement shoot was fun, relaxed, and resulted in some of our favorite images (and moments) from last year. Unsurprisingly their wedding had the same vibe, a small ceremony on the patio over the lake surrounded by family and friends, some tasty BBQ (mmm… Sticky Bones…), a little dancing and some chilling by the lake (thanks to a great planner: Karla McNeil). Really, it’s hard to imagine a more perfect day for Joseph and Sara’s wedding.

Stay tuned for a coming soon video from their wedding day. For now, enjoy the pictures and congratulate the couple.

Rachael and Kevin, Take 3 – Day After Shoot

Sometimes the world conspires against you, or it seems that way…

Rachael and Kevin - Day After Session - 13

Rachael wanted a bridal shoot before her wedding and we scheduled one for the week before the wedding right after the dress would be done. That morning we had to cancel. The area got 10 inches of rain and there was widespread flooding and road closures.

Flash forward to October. The wedding is over and the wedding photos are long done (including some epic weather on their wedding day too). We regrouped and tried again in the cooling fall weather only to have the second major rain event of the year happen that day… More flooding and road closures. Scratch attempt 2.

Attempt number 3, and this time we missed the rain by a day and had beautiful weather. As a bonus, Kevin tagged along and we turned the shoot into a “day after” couples shoot and had a lot of fun. We started off at Rabb House in Round Rock and then used the open skies at Old Settlers Park for some night sky shots.
