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.
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!
Nina and I have been in Austin for almost our whole lives! Well, she was born and raised here and I “came as quick as I could” when I was 10 but I feel like I’ve grown up here. This place is our home and as it has grown we have seen more and more brides coming from out of town! I remember when Austin only got busy during SXSW but now it seems like there is some festival every weekend and its popularity has skyrocketed! Seriously cranes have become a part of the Austin skyline, and out of town clientele has become a huge part of our business. Erica and Alex came all the way from Washington D.C for the bluebonnets and their session couldn’t have been better. With crisp sunny skies and a very blossoming bluebonnet season, everything was in place to create this beautiful session:
Emily and Eriks engagement session took place last February at Mayfield park. I loved the variety of outfits they chose (I mean THAT HAT *swoon*).
These two already tied the knot and their wedding will definitely be blogged soon. We had such a blast and Emily was so beautiful, we can’t wait to share. Until then, check out these spring engagements as we hope for some warmer weather!
I can’t tell you how much I love to travel, anyone who knows me knows its one of my passions. Not only do I love to travel but I love the city of San Francisco so whenever Crystal and George asked if I would be interested in shooting the engagements there I said of course ( but secretly I jumped for joy inside ). Without questions I couldn’t travel to such a great city and NOT invite my brother in law, he is like a brother to me and I knew he would be a huge help on the shoot. Everything went off without a hitch ( except poor George had just had knee surgery, but he was a trooper ) and I came back with an amazing session and vlog to compliment. Enjoy the shoot!
Rachel and Alex are two peas in a pod! Not only are they getting married next year at the amazing Barr Mansion but they chose South Congress for their engagement location and it couldn’t have fit their style more! If you have been following us for any time now you can tell when I ( Travis ) write these posts and when Nina does, so without further bad grammar and run on sentences enjoy these two’s sweet images!
