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!

This lovely weather is just too conducive for this type of shooting that I could not resist the urge to hit the streets again. This time, though, it didn’t start off as smoothly as last week. You’ll see what I mean with the first image. But I think I’ve been down there enough with my camera, laying down in suspicious and awkward positions on the sidewalks and streets, that the folks are getting used to me. They have grown numb to my intentions. In general, people are inherently nice….even if they don’t have a job or a home. I’m very fortunate to be allowed the opportunity to document a small portion of their lives. Like my last street posting, I was only armed with my camera and one single 35mm lens. I like to shoot wide and get close to my subjects, while incorporating the surroundings at the same time. I hope you enjoy this series!

Been a while since someone gave me the bird!

These gals were pretty cool. I asked if I could take their picture and they sorta hesitated but agreed to. I went inside the shop and got some coffee, when I came out, they ended up inviting me to sit down with them – interesting conversations ensued! Really nice and eclectic gals. I love the people in this town.

I hope you’ve enjoyed these as much as I have enjoyed taking them. Feel free to let me know what you think of them.

Ahhh street photography…….how I love thee. There’s just something so organic about it. So raw. So visceral. It’s just me trying to show you what I see, how I see them and the things I notice as I walk the streets. It’s been a while since I’ve shot some candid street shots. In fact, it’s been too long. But it’s March now and the Spring-like weather is here! Even if it only lasts for 3 weeks before the stifling heat smothers us like a thick, dense wool blanket. I was lucky today. Everyone seemed in good spirits. I never once got yelled at for taking someone’s picture. The Greenpeace canvassers were even singing to me. What nice people they were! I thoroughly enjoyed myself and I hope it shows in the images. As always, thank you for taking the time!

I busted someone else doing a bit of street photography! And in turn, I captured myself in the reflection. I didn’t realize this till I uploaded the images. True story!
