Shot at another gorgeous venue, The Villa Antonio for Christina & Kyle’s wedding this past weekend. I’ll be swamped for a bit with editing so I thought I’d put up a couple of teasers to keep you all at bay. Hope you like them. Also, I am in the process of improving the look of this here blog of mine, so keep an eye out for the face lift! Should be a vast improvement.

Cadillac Ranch

I suppose this is a valid blog post since it’s somewhat related to a wedding. I was in Canyon, TX this past weekend, which is about 20 miles south of Amarilla, to shoot a wedding. Because it’s such a long drive from Austin(9 hours), I decided to head up there a day early – it just made sense, logistically. Even though I left at 6am, by the time I arrived at my hotel and got settled in, there was only about 3 hours of daylight remaining. My original plan was to go to Palo Duro Canyon State Park so that I could do some landscape photography, something I haven’t done is so long. I miss it! Instead, I decided to visit the famous Cadillac Ranch. I tried to see it once before on a road trip I was taking to Colorado, but the timing wasn’t right and you can’t see the Ranch at night. Located west of Amarillo on the old Route 66, there lies 10 Cadillacs buried halfway into the ground, covered in graffiti, in the middle of a wheat field. Truly a spectacle to feast the eyes on! If you’re driving through that general area, I highly suggest stopping by. Maybe they’ll even be some cans of spray paint laying around for you to make your mark.

Marci + Joe | Wedding

Shot another fantastic wedding with Arol at AJH Photography this past weekend. The celebration took place at the gorgeous Plantation House in Pflugerville. I was really blown away by this venue. The attention to detail inside and out was absolutely amazing. The folks that run it are some great people! Easily one of the best venues that I have shot at. Add a great looking couple who, are utterly in love with each other, to that equation as well as one of the more stunning dresses I’ve seen and you’ve got a wedding that is really easy to photograph! Made me forget that it was 95 degrees out that day, even if more a moment. Hope you enjoy the pics!

Writing to report about another great experience from Canvas On Demand, my favorite vendor to order gallery wraps from! Not only do they do a supreme job, but they have some of the best customer service I have ever experienced. There’s no waiting on hold for eternity. They reply to your emails with lightning speed. And the pump out some really nice products. I could not be happier. Well, ok…I might be happier if I was at the beach, sipping a margarita. Maybe!

Christina :: Bridal

Howdy Y’all! Shot a bridal session couple weeks ago with Christina at the LOVELY Villa Antonia. What a beautiful venue this is! Out in the middle of nowhere. Surrounded by the lush hill country. Let me start by saying thank you to Ed Lehman, a colleague of mine, for coming out to assist me with this shoot! And it should also be known that Christina was such a trooper that day! It ain’t easy trudging up and down stairs of a hilly venue in a wedding dress in 90 degree weather. But, she did it, with no problem or complaints and a constant smile on her face. I’ll be shooting her and Kyle’s wedding on June 21st, so keep an eye out for those pictures! Here are two of my personal favorites from the day.
