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.

Hey, Everyone! I shot a wedding last week in Houston for another local Photographer, Ben, of Godkin Photo. It’s really awesome to be able to work with other Photographers in the area. I think it’s important that we do that. By doing so, everyone benefits from learning off of one another. Needless to say that Ben is a great guy to work with. He has worked with this family in the past, so they were ultra nice and very welcoming to us both. The couple and the family were SO easy to work with. The wedding took place in yet another stunning Catholic church, St. Annes and the reception was very cozy and intimate. Here are some of my favorites from the day. Hope you enjoy!





















Melissa + Rick | Wedding :: Fredericksburg

Howdy Y’all! Shot a Wedding in Fredericksburg on the 2nd of May, assisting my Buddy, Arol, at AJH Photography. Arol is a great Photographer and is really fun to shoot with. Melissa and Rick were such a great couple who have super awesome families. They got married at one of the most beautiful Catholic churches that I’ve ever been in. You won’t know from the pictures, but Melissa had to use crutches for a good portion of the day. She fractured a hip while running the Boston Marathon. Rick is also very active – he’s a personal trainer here in Austin. They make such a great couple who really know how to have fun and I wish them the best! Thanks to Arol for the opportunity!

























Liza + Tim | Wedding :: New Orleans

Not having been to New Orleans as an adult, it’s suffice to say that I jumped on this opportunity without even blinking. Liza and Tim had just finished college and decided to moved back to Tim’s home town – The Big Easy. Young, but traditional, this wedding was both beautiful and fun! The ceremony and reception both took place at the Audubon Nature Center Golf Clubhouse. With Liza having been a sorority [girl] and Tim a fraternity [boy], this was no small wedding. There were 11 bride’s maids and 10 groom’s men. ELEVEN! Huge bridal party! And speaking of party….did these folks know how to! Probably one of the most fun receptions I’ve witnessed in a while. I hope you enjoy the pictures! As always, thanks for stopping by 🙂

For those of you who don’t know what SXSW is —>

For the past 12 or so years, I’ve had the GREAT pleasure of attending this magnificent festival of sorts, right here in my beautiful city, Austin. This year, I decided to experience the festival from a different perspective….as part of the SXSW photography crew. The only part of it I didn’t like was being stuck at a heavy metal showcase for a whole evening. Nothing against all you metal heads out there, but it’s just not my thing. I’m kind of over the whole mosh pit thing as well. Other than that, it was a cool experience. I’d love to show you ALL the pictures I took, but SXSW has the rights to those for the next 6 months. However, I did keep a few to myself. Nothing stellar, really….but a little slice of what I got to capture. Enjoy!
