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.
Last weekend I shot an elopement at the Chapel Dulcinea at the Wizard School. It's a free wedding venue provided by the oddly named business school - a beautiful open air chapel sitting on the edge of a cliff. Click to enlarge images.
Danny & Sophia's wedding was a very personal, very special celebration. From their ceremony location - their home, filled to the brim with bookshelves and sweet artwork - to their special family hug during the ceremony, everything was infused with their individual personalities. Danny's love of cameras was represented through the many Instax prints and Sophia's anthropology background showed in their choice of dessert - an anatomically correct chocolate skull - complete with flower crown.

I photograph a lot of weddings, so I don't usually get super emotional during the ceremony. But I cried happy tears when Kera & Travis got married - and I'm just the photographer! Typically quiet Travis shouting "I LOVE YOU" at the top of his lungs just did me in - there wasn't a dry eye in the house. Kera & Travis had one of the most personal weddings I've had the pleasure of photographing. Every detail was infused with their personalities, from the custom cake topper that Kera made herself to the bluesy music they wove throughout the day. Click to enlarge.
Every time I spend some time with Tim & April, I like them more - we share a love of vegan ice cream for starters - so I was super excited to capture their wedding. Tim & April got married in an intimate ceremony on January 1, 2016 at the Institution Theater.
Their ceremony was personal, sweet and incredibly unique. The opening was filled with references to Bill & Ted's Excellent Adventure, Doctor Who, Firefly, Star Trek and more. April is a musician and she performed a very sweet Snow Patrol cover. Afterwards, friends and family feasted on the most delicious of kolaches, punch (complete with Tardis ice cubes) and other goodies.
A few months later, we got together at the Blanton to capture portraits that weren't possible on their big day. Click to enlarge.
