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.

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.

Veronica + Dennis | Wedding

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!

Sue + James | Wedding

I had the honor of shooting my Sister’s wedding over this past weekend. It was a really small backyard wedding with only the immediate family attending. James and his children(think Brady Bunch) are a welcomed addition to our family! The ceremony took place in my Mother’s beautiful garden and the reception was at Rio Grande Mexican Restaurant in downtown Austin. Mariachi Bands + wedding receptions = awesome! I highly recommend hiring one. The final song they played was the very song that made my Parents elope, which ultimately led to the conception of my sister, Sue…..funny how things work out like that. Thanks for stopping by! Enjoy!

Brittany + Stephen | Wedding

Shot this great couple in Ft. Worth this past weekend with one of the Wedding Photographers whom I look up to, Sam Hassas. The groom, Stephen, who is half Shrilankan, was a pretty suave guy – in a James Bond kind of way, but without the cool gadgets and lethal hands. Somewhat reserved, but you could tell he had his head on his shoulders and his feet firmly planted on the ground. Brittany had the oh-so-ever classic look about her….photographs real well. She’s got the quintessential southern drawl as well. Straight out of “Steel Magnolias” The couple and wedding party were all really great and very willing to participate. Though, I must admit, it was a rather different experience for me – no wedding rings, no dancing and no booze. WHOA. I’m used to the all out parties that are indicative of Catholic weddings. Nonetheless, it was a fun day and it was a pleasure to photograph such wonderful people and to work with an incredible Photographer. I owe you BIG, Sam!

Believe it, or not. The Pastor forgot to sign their marriage license, so technically, they weren’t recognized as a married couple by the law! Way to go separation of state and church! But, the Pastor, being the hero that he is, met us at the parking garage downtown where we were shooting and signed the paperwork.
