Alex & Allyson and their two cute offspring met me downtown Austin for a fun afternoon of walking around Congress street. Lots of color for this graphic designer family during a quick mini session.
This wedding was one of the most authentic weddings I've had the pleasure of photographing. The couple infused every detail of the wedding with their personalities - from the tattoos the bridal party got the night before to the tiny Brazilian cakes guests enjoyed to the lovely ceremony to the fact that the bride wore the groom's grandmother's gown.
Ian & Nicole's plans for a sunny backyard wedding had to alter (excuse the wedding pun!) a bit when it poured all weekend. But rain doesn't need to stop a wedding - and Ian & Nicole took it all in stride. They got married (and were so excited the jumped the gun on the first kiss!), I waterproofed my gear (throwing a ziplock bag on your flash works wonders), and we braved the rain for some cool portraits. Kudos to Nicole for jumping in mud puddles in a white wedding dress!
With some creativity and a willingness to have fun, rain or shine, you can definitely still have awesome wedding photos. Thanks so much to Ian & Nicole for trusting me to capture their day!
Ian & Nicole found me through a referral from one of my Michigan clients - small world! Nicole suggested a retro-themed shoot in their backyard, since Ian repairs vintage hot rods. It turned out wonderfully! Taking photographs in a place that is important to the couple (in this case, Ian & Nicole's home together) really makes the engagement session special.
Ian & Nicole were game to try any and all of my ideas ("Let's climb up into the treehouse!"). This is what Nicole had to say when she saw them:
Erica & Jess are one of those couples where you can tell they belong together - from the way Jess lit up when he saw Erica during the first look to how Erica found serenity in Jess's arms during the inevitable chaos of the wedding. It was a joy to capture these two and their family and friends at TerrAdorna in Austin, TX.
