I’m having a hard time coming up with words to describe how much I love this photo shoot. Taking photos that are conceptual and candid at the same time might just be my favorite thing in the world.  I consider this a creative collaboration since most of these photos were created from Molly’s concept drawings. Molly and Pat really wanted photos that described them as people and represented their interests as well as their adoration for one another. Molly Brau is an extremely talented painter and artist.  Seriously check out her work here. The masks she created for the “bobble-head” photos blew my mind. Pat is the drummer for The Wheeler Brothers. If you haven’t listened to their Americana/ folk/rock/bluesy melodies do yourself a favor and check them out on Spotify or your favorite music source. You’re welcome! Pat is one of the jolliest, sweetest, creative, adored by his friends guy I have ever met. Make sure to scroll to the bottom of this post to see the grand finale shot and you will see that there’s so much excitement around the union of these two. Sometimes I just get couples that AMAZE me in their perfection for one another. Molly and Pat are rockstars but also the most down to earth people you could ever hope to meet. I love it when couples or any kind of client knows what they want from their photos. Making someone’s vision a reality is one of the most rewarding things I can do. Can’t you just feel the love and creativity? I can’t wait for this wedding next month is Tarpley, Texas during Utopiafest!

Tiffany and Palani had an outrageously gorgeous wedding ceremony at Lady Bird Johnson Wildflower Center this past spring. I loved how they chose different locations for the wedding and ceremony. Tiffany and Palani met hiking and they wanted their ceremony to resemble their love of nature, but they wanted to add some classical wedding elements so they chose the Austin Club for a fantastic ballroom celebration. I just loved everything about this wedding. It was so lighthearted, fun and filled to the brim with love! Thanks to all the great vendors who helped make this day extra special:

Cake – Sugar Mama’s Bakeshop // Texas ProDJ – Barrington Miles // Florist – Natasha from EcoChic // Makeup/hair – Red Stella // Mehndi – Anju of Mehndi Time

Becky is one of my dearest friends who I met 6 years ago when I first moved to Austin. She is the kindest and smartest person you could ever hope to meet. When Becky met Bo four years ago in acupuncture school, there was no doubt in my mind he was the love of her life. The make each other laugh like crazy, they love sci-fi, Chinese medicine and their 2 incredible dogs and 2 cats! Getting to photograph one of my best friend’s wedding was an amazing experience, though I had to fight through lots of happy tears! It was so cool to see Becky’s vision of her wedding day come to life since we’d been talking about it for so many months. The ceremony was held at a pavilion in the quaint downtown of Jonesborugh, Tennessee. The reception was at Becky’s parents house and we all enjoyed fantastic sangria and Chinese food at the conveniently located park directly across the street. The music was awesome and the dance floor was kinetic. Best of all, I finally got to dance at a wedding! I could not be happier for Becky and Bo – these two are the definition of love and I am so lucky to call them my great friends. Congrats!! I love you guys!

Emily and Mike were married at one of my favorite venues, Fischer Hall. You could not ask for a better wedding. The whole day was a gorgeous reflection on Emily and Mike’s personalities- sophisticated and colorful.  Emily and Mike are an amazing example of two people who are completely perfect for one another. There is so much tenderness and laughter between them and I’m so happy they decided to have a big old fashioned Texas wedding to celebrate their union. Special thanks to all the great vendors who helped make this day incredible!

Top notch, high energy, mega talented band!: Groove Knight // Caterer/BBQ: Stile Switch // Cake: Tabitha Griffin // Flowers: Arnosky Flowers // Plates and cups: Loot Vintage // Emily’s Hair: Chelsea at Method Hair // Bridesmaids Hair and makeup: Pink West Hair Salon

Dawn and Connor’s wedding felt like the most amazing backyard party you’ve ever been to! The processional was hands down the most creative and fun I’ve ever witnessed. Connor rode in Texas style by horseback. Little did he know, Dawn’s father’s friend was following with a shot gun (don’t mess with his baby girl Connor!). Dawn and her dad made an unforgettable entrance dancing all the way down the aisle to a childhood favorite “Do Wah Diddy Diddy”. Dawn incorporated her Louisiana roots with a crawfish boil and Connor brewed some tasty beer to compliment this festive meal. The entire day and night was filled with nonstop fun, amazing dancing and great moments with family and friends. I would also like to give a big shout out to Audrey at Timeless Beginnings for doing such a great job coordinating this wedding. Check her out if you want your wedding day to go by flawlessly!
