What could be better than a touching surprise proposal on the 360 Overlook?
Sometimes the world conspires against you, or it seems that way…
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.
Let’s party brother! A fun wedding full of awesome moments at Vista on Seward Hill.
Care Bear Attack! Because really, what is scarier than Share Bear coming after the wedding party to rain down hugs and warmth. Garrett is a bit of prankster and wanted to have dinosaur’s or king kong chasing the bridal party. We had to raise his joke one more level and go full Ghostbuster style in photoshopping in the Care Bears.
Julie, Garrett and their families went over the top DIY on the decor for the wedding, even going as far as making polished wood stands for the floral vases. Friends and family came and pitched in to help setup and break down the venue as fast as any wedding we have seen. Warmed our heart to see the social fabric wrapped so tight around Julie & Garrett.
Thanks to the Hotel Alsace for hosting us on a great fall Saturday.
Fun Fun Fun Fest happened this past weekend in Austin, but I don’t think anyone had more fun fun fun than Angela & Arron at their wedding. Every photo we took had either Angela smiling, Arron laughing, Angela making a silly face or Arron trying to make Angela laugh some more. Just infectious laughter throughout the evening. Seriouly, watch the trailer we made for their wedding film and try to find a face that isn’t one step from hypoxic laughter.

We can’t believe Chelsea is graduating college from Texas A&M already. Seems like yesterday we were photographing her high school senior portraits. We traveled up to Aggieland on a beautiful fall Sunday to photograph Chelsea around the A&M campus. The session started at the iconic Dixie Chicken and their Bottle Cap Alley. We then travelled to a few of the campus highlights including the Aggie class ring, Kyle Field and the Administration Building.
Next time we photograph Chelsea I think it will at her wedding in another 4 years!
No pressure for this wedding, the groom Antonio is also a photographer and he is up for anything. The bride, Michelle, is the little sister of one of our running friends. The expectations are always high of course, but I would be lying if I wasn’t a bit nervous heading into this fall Saturday. Thankfully we had the team from Life Styled Events to keep the day running smooth.
The ceremony at St. Elizabeth of Hungary started the day off with a dual language service. Beautiful stained glass adorned the chapel with vignettes of the other area Catholic Churches, a nice inclusive touch. From the church it was off to one of favorite venues, Lone Oak Barn in Round Rock, where the party really got started.
A few of the brushstrokes from the reception that stood out to me: A fun photobooth, a dad’s toast that veered into Cajun, the groom and his mother dance that left my eyes a little watery, and a couple madly in love. Of course the cowbell to ring for a kiss was the evening’s favorite game to play anytime Antonio and Michelle were more than 5 feet away from each other.
Congratulations to Antonio & Michelle!
