We shot a beautiful wedding yesterday at Kindred Oaks in Georgetown, TX! Y’all, their centerpieces were suspended from beams, hanging above their tables! It was such a delightful twist to the reception area. Here is just a tiny sneak peak of their beautiful day:

Beautiful, right?! These two were so much fun….But what this post is REALLY about is Rachel’s bridal session that took place in downtown Austin, TX last month. Travis covered this windy session and also captured it via vlog (his new obsession if you can’t tell!). We love people getting to see what really goes behind the scenes of our passion and it’s fun for potential clients to see how we work, so make sure to watch the video of this session too (included is a cameo from our impatient daughter, Amelia hah!)

Check it out below:

Can you believe it’s July?! I am still drooling over this June wedding we photographed at Hummingbird House in Austin, TX just a few weeks ago. There were so many special elements that went into this day and I adored all the sunflowers that decorated the reception, Wow Factor Design made the room look summer-time-effortless.  The pre-ceremony festivities took place at the venue which makes it easy for everyone and also allows us to capture the special moments Aaron and Stephanie wanted, like when they prayed together on either side of a door right before the ceremony. I think everyone can agree that Stephanie has this timeless look about her, and Aly with Flair Style Lounge did a great job at enhancing her natural beauty (and those GORGEOUS red locks!)

Stephanie had the most detailed custom rose-gold (swoon!) engagement ring and the groom had a special engraved band that matched. Her parents wedding rings were tied around her bouquet and I also photographed their rings on Stephanies fathers bible, matching the bible verse that she had delicately tattooed on her shoulder.

This couples faith and love filled the rooms they were in, and their ceremony included a lot of firsts for us. Stephanie and Aaron chose to wash each others feet during their Christian ceremony and it was breathtaking and unique! It is no surprise these two met serving the Lord on a mission trip together.

Their bridal party was so much fun and the guys had so much fun posing…they came up with the post ceremony posing you see below and I loved how lighthearted they were. The girls brought chalkboard signs saying how they met the bride but not shown…the guys posing and playing with them as well, ha!

Pearl Snap Cuisine had the most amazing exotic fruit & cheese platter that greeted the guests to the reception. This amazing catering company also provided an excellent dinner and fabulous s’mores bar for dessert. Having sweet treats along with cake has been such a trend for 2016…who can complain with variety?

These two and their guests DANCED the night away thanks to Jaime with Live Oak DJ, and were sent off into the night by sparklers….

Lauren and Enrique are getting married in Guatemala where he is from but they really wanted to showcase their new city ( they both recently moved here from Houston ). Not only were they so much fun to hang out with but their love shown through so easily on camera! We started our session at the Lamar Pedestrian Bridge downtown and moved to Zilker Park. The shoot ended where they got engaged, The Driskill downtown! After a few drinks we started out on our amazing shoot and I couldn’t be happier with the turnout. We even filmed the session so others can see how enjoyable these engagement shoots can be. I hope you like these as much as I did making them.

This beautiful wedding took place at Vista West Ranch in Austin, TX. This venue is absolutely stunning and perfect for those that want an elegant and rustic feel. Lanterns adorn the beautiful trees and native wild flowers are still in bloom, but I must say that the reception decor of this modern barn-like structure takes the cake! The hanging balls of lights and dried babies breath that cascades from the main entrance is STUNNING. This duo chose Austin for their destination wedding and we are having more and more clients following suit. It’s so crazy to think that this great little city of ours has love birds flying from all over to experience the Austin goodness for their special day!

Lauren and Kevin had so many special touches that didn’t go unnoticed! Kevin had the most killer cuff links, gifted to him from his grandfather, and all four of his brothers were in his wedding party.  Lauren’s niece was the most special flower girl, and you can see her just completely enamored with her aunt when she is putting on her dress below. She took her job SERIOUSLY and she was an amazing big sister to the precious ring bearer. I think its super important to get portraits of the flower girl and ring bearer, separately from the rest of the bridal party, and use the time after the ceremony (when Travis is doing formal family portraits) to do so. This sweet little duo knew how to work the camera!

Kevin and Lauren met down the isle, and you could tell that she took his breath away. It’s always cool to me that you can see the exact moment a nervous groom takes a giant sigh of relief, the second he locks eyes with his soon to be wife…and this was true for Kevin. They had a short and sweet ceremony and kept their photo list to a minimum because these two were ready to party!

The cocktail hour had some killer munchies and it was hilarious to see guests (predominately from Chicago) ask questions about the BBQ, ha! Vista West Ranch has a cool set up that has the perfect outdoor area for cocktail hour while the guests are awaiting the reception. Once the party started, I must say…his brothers gave some of the best speeches to date. They were absolutely hilarious and the groom was in tears from a combination of laughter and memories. I feel like toasts really give you a sense of who these people were before they met and usually give insight on how they came to be one. You learn about their past and present all in a matter of minutes, and this was true for these two. They had a table of sweets for desserts, everything from cake balls to banana pudding and even had a s’mores bar outside! Their favors were so perfect…scratch off lottery tickets….which totally complimented the grooms moment of glory when he decided to have a concert of his own, ha! Their band was amazing and everyone in attendance had a blast. Below is a recap of their special day:
