Get a sneak peek of Kristina and Britt’s wedding at the beautiful Vintage Villas on Lake Travis with this coming soon video trailer!
The Texas hill country is full of beautiful locations to explore and we love it when couples say yes to exploring them during their engagement session. Jason and Shey met us for an Inks Lake Adventure Engagement. Check out (and I don’t normally get to say this) Shay’s adventure giraffe bridal shoot.
Inks lake is a beautiful natural location for engagement photos. The rugged landscape fit Shay and Jason’s adventurous spirit perfectly. Thanks to some recent rain, there were even reflective puddles on the granite.
The stars were big and bright over Shay and Jason. They said yes to hanging out and waiting for full dark. Then the fun began.
I’ve known Jonathan for a long while through the swing dance scene and later met Lindsay the same way. I’ve often found them efficiently making things “just work” as a part of Austin’s booming dance scene. They are a couple that make a great team and are also really cute together.
Given how their engagement session went, I wasn’t surprised when their wedding was heaps of fun too. Lindsay and Jonathan applied their dance scene skills to their wedding and made it work flawlessly. They DIY’ed all their decorations to turn Prospect House into a setting that perfectly reflected their playful sense of style. Lindsay made hundreds of gorgeous paper flowers, cute place settings for each guest, and a lot of nice small touches to help the guests enjoy the wedding.
Congratulations Jonathan and Lindsay! Thanks for having us as your photographers.

You might remember Kristina & Britt from their engagement session session where Josh got soaked stepping too deep in a lake. And with Austin’s weather this spring threatening rain everyday we lucked out for the wedding ceremony with a calm day and a wonderful sunset (our favorite). Everyone in attendance enjoyed the wonderful views of Lake Travis at Vintage Villas and we all managed to stay dry for the wedding. The weather gods appeased, we were treated to a night of heart rending toasts, ecstatic dancing and a blending of families and cultures. The last part is the aspect of weddings that we feel are the most compelling. Families coming together to witness and share in the love of an union such as Britt & Kristina.
Ale, a long time friend of AzulOx, contacted us to do her College Senior Portraits. She knew what we were all about and wanted to use our expertise to craft images that told a story of a young woman who wasn’t so approachable, a woman in nature with maybe a bit of magic to her. We chose the setting of McKinney Falls in south Austin to add a touch of history and a feel for the story of Austin. The water around the falls was really running strong so we started there with time slowing techniques to capture Alejandra with an infinite feel, like she had always been there. The sun was peaking around the clouds here and there and for a moment it felt like we were in another Continent with the way the light was bending.
We finished when the light from the day was almost entirely gone and the clouds were at the most dramatic. We took one of the darker portraits and took it a step further with a few crow composites to really drive home the magical feel of the evening. What type of magic can AzulOx conjure for your special portraits?
On a boat! Emily’s Senior Portrait Experience featured the first time we have ever used a ski boat as a movable platform for our studio lights, or photographed a cap and gown on water skis! When Emily’s mother contacted us, we knew we were in for a special assignment. The conversation started with cheer-leading photographs and maybe around downtown Seguin in her Aggieland outfit, but the talk turned to Emily loving to waterski at Lake McQueeney and could we take some on the boat too. Well of course #teamblue was ready for that challenge. Josh was on the main boat with his flash on the chase boat where Andrew was stationed shooting with a flash back on the main boat. Team shooting allowed us to get different angles while Emily cruised around the water on 2 then on 1 water ski.
Projects like this are what AzulOx is known for, taking a normal senior portrait session and turning it into a Senior Portrait Experience with 2 photographers, assistants, and lights firing all over the waterfront. What can Team Blue do for you?!
