Milltown Historic District |Amber & Chris|

Amber & Chris tied the knot back in November 2017 but that doesn’t stop me from crushing on their fall wedding day! Chris and Amber are such a FUN couple and their families were just as easy going as they were. They got married and had their reception at Milltown Historic District and the scene was so unique compared to some local Austin, TX venues. The venue sat on a beautiful property, full of lush trees, a river and a gorgeous bridge that we took advantage of at sunset. All the deep jewel tones of their wedding day meshed perfectly with Milltown, the perfect mix of rustic and romance! C&A had so many personal touches, INCLUDING MONOGRAMED ICE CUBES, YALL. Also, Ambers grandmother served as the flower girl and I have been trying to convince every bride since to follow her lead, it was by far the sweetest thing I have seen.  Their band was awesome and Ambers brother serenaded the newlyweds as they danced to their first song as husband and wife. Check out the amazing vendors we were able to work with below! We loved working with Zac, the videographer and Silver Thistle Events made our jobs a breeze…Cheers to the spring wedding season!

Rancho Mirando Wedding |Ashley & Derek|

Guys. IT’S MARCH. How did this happen?! Wedding season is about to come at us full force, but I am still swooning over this wedding from February. Ashley and Derek tied the knot at Rancho Mirando and it was absolutely dreamy. This was also our first VLOG of the year…Travis really loves to vlog and the creative process afterwards and he truly has such a good eye for video. Did you know that he traveled to India some years ago with a fellow photographer, shot video for the first time in his life and the short film went on to win SO. MANY. AWARDS? I am still so proud of it years later and you can watch it here: Cloth Paper Dreams

BACK TO THESE LOVEBIRDS: I knew I recognized Ashley but I couldn’t put my finger on where…later in the day it was mentioned that she competed on America Ninja Warrior and THAT IS OUR FAVORITE SHOW to watch with our kids! I suddenly felt like I was photographing a celebrity, ha! These two are just so kind and giggly. I mentioned in their engagement blog (here) that they had such a noticeable chemistry, and that held true on their wedding day. They never took their eyes off one another, and their laughs together were endless. It’s so comforting to be able to photograph couples on the first day of the rest of their lives together, and A&D couldn’t have been sweeter.

Their wedding had some personal touches that were so fun to capture, from their amazing grooms cake (fit for a deep sea fisherman!) to their wedding invitations. Their wedding was riddled with notes of deep blue everywhere…even their champagne! Without these amazing vendors, this day wouldn’t have been possible, so check out these links if you’re in need of some wedding inspiration:

These two get married this weekend! WE CAN’T WAIT…I mean just look at their chemistry. These guys were so much fun to photograph at Rancho Mirando and we will be back there this weekend for the big day. Look at their sweet pups- we might have gotten a few forced smiles out of him, ha! This venue has such epic lighting, greenery and such a vast amount of sweet spots to shoot in.

Check out their session:

South Congress Engagement Session |Rachel & Alex|

At every consultation with a new client I try to express just how important an engagement session is. Not only is it the only professional photos you will probably have done while you engaged ( and to most couples the only professional photos they have of them together ) it is a great way for the couple to work with us before the day of the wedding. It can be so stressful having your photo taken and on the day of the wedding you want to feel so comfortable you forget we are photographers! Sessions like this justify all of my beliefs, that having an engagement session before can really help calm nerves on the wedding day.

 

“I am not good at taking pictures” is something I hear from almost every single one of our Grooms. I get it, I hate having my photo taken too ( Travis might disagree ) but most of the time it’s not having your photo taken that is the bad part but how you feel while having your photo taken. Thats where we step in and do our thing, if we do it right you feel like we aren’t some photographer you found because you are getting married but someone you have known for a long time who is invested into your relationship. Alex and Rachel are getting married this coming April and I can tell you for sure we are going to have a great time with these two! See you both soon!

Danielle & Michael had such a beautiful wedding last spring at the Texas Federation of Women’s Club Mansion! Their bridesmaids were so much fun and the day truly was easy going and classic. Danielles shoes were SO PERFECT and they definitely topped the list for my favorite flats I saw last year, not to mention that they matched her blooms just perfectly. The reception space is just so stunning and uplighting the room completely transforms this space and Andrew with Made From Skratch weddings did such a wonderful job! This venue had the perfect indoor option (because lets be honest, Texas summers can be pretty brutal) for their 100 guests and I HAVE to mention their cocktail hour…LOOK AT THAT SPREAD. These two had their first dance to a Smashing Pumpkins song and ended the evening with every single guest singing their brains out to “Bohemian Rhapsody” to end the evening. Yes, these two are as perfect for each other like grilled cheese & tomato bisque (again…best cocktail spread EVER.) and we were so happy to capture it.
