Shilpa + Nilay :: Sneak Peek | Austin Engagement Photographer


Shilpa + Nilay :: Sneak Peek | Austin Engagement Photographer

Coffee, anyone?! I met with Shilpa and Nilay for the first time about a month ago to discuss shooting their engagement session. Things were going great, we were having some coffee, the conversation was flowing. At some point I said something that Nilay found to be really funny and he just wasn’t able to hold in his laughter. The only problem was that he had just taken a swig of his iced coffee – PPPPPPBBBBBBBBTTTTTTTT – followed by a fine spray of some of Austin’s finest caffeine beverages hurling towards me. I froze. They froze. It seemed that time also froze. Luckily, the table we were sat at was large enough that the majority of the spray missed me. Can you imagine?! One of the funniest things that has ever happened to me while meeting with clients. Hilarious! They showed up for the portrait session this past Saturday armed only with a bottle of water and smirks on their faces. Good way to start the shoot! Here are a few sneak peeks from the day.

Ali + Dan :: Sneak Peek | Grapevine Wedding Photographer

This past weekend’s adventures brought Eric and I to Grapevine, Texas for Ali and Dan’s drop-dead-gorgeous vineyard wedding at the Delaney Vineyards and Winery. Combine this beautiful venue with one of the coolest couples on this planet, and you’ve got yourself an unforgettable celebration. I had been looking forward to this wedding for several months and it’s almost sad that it’s already come and gone. This was one of those days that you wished would never end. It’s ok, though…I KNOW that I’ll be staying in touch with these cool cats for a very, very long time. Maybe once Dan has fulfilled his obligation with the Navy, they’ll plant their roots in Austin so we can hang out again. Congratulations to you both and thank you Dan, for your service to this country!

Last, and absolutely not least, we have Beth and Wolf’s charming wedding at the Terrace Club to complete the holiday weekend wedding trifecta. It’s so great that, even though I shot three weddings in a row, each celebration was so unique and so different from the one before it. I love that. This was my first wedding that included a four-legged participant – Eric the dog. A big thanks to Mr. Eric Kotara for assisting me on this shoot.

Kendall + Jake :: Sneak Peek | Boerne Wedding Photographer

Day two of the Memorial Day weekend mayhem!  Although, this gorgeous wedding was anything but mayhem.  I love getting to work with super duper fantastic couples who have the best friends and families in the whole world. Seriously, everyone was so cool and so nice! This day brought Eric and I to Boerne, TX, to the lovely Marquardt Ranch. I love shooting at this venue – it’s clean, beautiful and they have Amanda – one of the best wedding coordinators ever.  Kendall and Jake both really love the beach, and especially Jake – he is a huge surfer.  I thought that bringing some beach balls was the least I could do.  That, and I don’t really know where to get 10 surf boards. Here are some teasers that I’d like to share with you. Congratulations to Kendall and Jake – I am gonna have to visit you guys in San Diego some day!

LOVE IT!

Julia + Matt :: First Look | Austin Wedding Photographer

What a huge Memorial Day weekend it was!  The craziness started off with Julia and Matt’s wonderful wedding at Villa Antonia on Friday. It was such a flawless day filled with so much emotion, happiness and laughter. Matt and Julia are a really fun couple and both Eric and myself are really glad to have been a part of their awesome day. Here’s a sneak peek…this was during their first look. So awesome! Can you feel the love?!?! Gotta love Julia’s gorgeous dress….never seen anything like it.

P.S. I am so jealous that Matt got to sport a Seersucker suit!
