Kera & Travis - Colorful Ladybird Johnson Wildflower Center Wedding

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.

Kevin & Casandra - Kickass Nerdy Outdoor Wedding

Kevin & Casandra's wedding was one of the most unique weddings I've shot and a great way to kick off the 2015 wedding season. KJ, their son, was included in the wedding ceremony in a really awesome way (and he has some of the sweetest dance moves I've ever seen!).

They opted for a lifestyle wedding shot, forgoing the traditional family photos and opting for more photojournalistic photos that captured natural moments - mom and daughter laughing, Kevin & Casandra snapping post-wedding selfies, and friends showing off their shoes. Kevin is super into sneakers, and he exchanged custom-made sneakers with Casanda that were designed to show off their past, present and future together.

Ismael & Kate - Texas Barn Wedding with BBQ

Ismael & Kate got married on one of the rainiest days imaginable, but the rain did nothing to dampen the spirits of their family and friends that traveled from all over to see them tie the knot! (I think it even rained during their engagement shoot.) Check out this outdoorsy, laid back barn wedding - complete with Texas barbecue. Click to enlarge.

Andrew & Mary - Rainy Wedding in a Pioneer Town

I met Andrew & Mary on the day of their wedding after a flurry of emails and a Skype date. It was unusually cold for Texas, and the sky was doing exactly what we had hoped it wouldn't - rain. Andrew & Mary and their guests shrugged off the rain, and the day went without a hitch - including the outdoor ceremony. What I loved most about Andrew & Mary's wedding was that beneath the gorgeous exterior - fur stoles, crystals hanging from tree branches, and the most ornate bouquet you could imagine - was a VERY nerdy core. Andrew & Mary expertly wove their interests into the small details - the bouquet was hiding a GoPro camera, the wedding program read like a computer program, and the groom's cufflinks featured Trailer Park Boys characters. Check out their multi-layered wedding below - click the images to enlarge.

Year in Review: Best of 2014

2014 was my first full year in Austin. I have had a blast shooting my way around central Texas. A big thank you to all of my clients this past year - you guys are the reason why I do what I do. Here's a round up of some of my favorite shots, in no particular order, from the last 12 months. Click to enlarge.
