Two of my four shoots last weekend were in Austin… on what was probably the coldest two days of the entire year… or.. .maybe the last couple of years? ha! We decided to shoot the majority of the e-session inside at the Capitol where it was a little bit warmer than the wind chill of -10 degrees… Ha! I promise. It felt that cold! We spent the last 10 minutes outside… and I think its safe to say we couldn’t feel our fingers… or toes… Literally. Sheliah & Chris… Thank you for braving 27 degree weather with me!! Haha!! You can’t even tell you guys were freezing!! Yall are awesome! Can’t wait for your big day!!
Oh my goodness… This is such a long awaited post!! I had the sincere privilege of photographing Ashley & Thad’s Wedding in October… Due to a crazy stint of shoots and taking some time in December to catch up, I am just now posting. Thank you for being so incredibly patient while I tried to catch up and find balance between work and life! Ashley & Thad… I adored you guys the moment I met you at Ashley & Trinity’s wedding. And when you asked me if I would photograph your wedding… I honestly could not have been more excited! I am fortunate to work with truly great clients… and one of the best perks of this job… is that these are client-turned-friends! I love that! And really… these are two of the sweetest, most beautiful people you will meet!
I have to give a huge thank you to… fantastic New York City photographer, Jessica Lavoie for second shooting Ashley & Thad’s wedding with me! She captured that aaamaaazing sun flare shot of Ashley & Thad below… (You can’t miss it!- Really. It’s amazing…and as my dad would say… “I wouldn’t steer you wrong!”) haha!

Madison & Billy… Thank you for trusting me… when I asked you to walk through the weeds… and when I asked you to lay in the grass… you did. haha!
