I met up with Alex and Dewilyn at this amazing coffee shop called Flat Track, to discuss their future wedding. Right off the bat they seemed like such a sweet couple and we hit it off really well. Before their wedding, I photographed Dewilyn for her bridal session at Sekrit Theater. Because I got to know them before their wedding, this wedding was pretty special to me and I felt like I was photographing my own friends. I was super excited to photograph their wedding because it was on the rooftop of the Austin Central Library, which is THE coolest library in Austin. It’s in the heart of downtown right across the street from the river and also has a beautiful walking/biking trail adjacent to it. I loved getting to explore all of these spots with Alex and Dewilyn during their portrait session after their ceremony. Thank you to my pal Nick Meza for grabbing some getting ready shots of Alex!

As if their engagement session wasn’t cool enough, Hannah and Drew got married at this super cool Houston spot called Nouveau Antique Art Bar. I remember coming to this place when I lived in Houston and loved how many unique lighting fixtures they had all over their ceiling. Hannah wanted these captured in her photos, and you can see them in this blog post! I definitely recommend making a visit next time you’re in Houston. And yes, their wedding date was on purpose. And their hashtag? #TheKennedyConspiracy, since Drew’s last name is Kennedy. Amazing.

Jess and Rorie’s wedding was so perfectly them. They got married outside at The Plant at Kyle, under trees, and then had their dinner under a tent that was decorated with beautiful flowers and pictures and postcards from their travels across the world. Their reception had some travel themes too, with a giant postcard board for guests to write letters to them. Check out their awesome engagement session too!

Chelsea, Nathan, and I got to get to know each other during their engagement session earlier this year, when we got to explore downtown Austin at sunrise. On their wedding day, my second shooter Nick and I arrived at Lone Oak Barn and we were so amazed by what we saw. The number of wonderful vendors that worked to make Chelsea and Nathan’s vision come true was just amazing. Everything was so perfectly put together and arranged, it was hard for me to narrow down what images I would include in this blog post! The ceremony and reception were indoors, but the piece of land Lone Oak Barn is on is also gorgeous. And a special shoutout to the Matchmaker Band, I’ve shot a lot of weddings they’ve performed at and they’re always a crowd favorite!

Christina & Femi had a beautiful spring wedding at Mercury Hall. (And their engagement session can be found here.) They chose to have an indoor ceremony and reception, and I think Mercury Hall is one of the best venues for that. Whenever I’m photographing weddings I always appreciate venues that have well thought out indoor and outdoor spaces for couples to choose from. Christina and Femi had a wonderful ceremony and a full dance floor. Everyone was taking turns being the DJ so the dancing went on all night! They also left the reception in a Maserati, which is pretty badass. Thank you to Megan the Photographer for capturing a few of the getting ready shots!

Jennifer and Andrew found my portfolio through Jennifer’s awesome coworker Chloe, whose wedding I shot in 2018. We met up at a coffee shop called Epoch Coffee in North Austin to talk details. We immediately clicked, and were so excited to talk about their wedding. I also LOVE the area they live in, so that was a topic of conversation too! They tied the knot at Saddle Creek Weddings, a gorgeous venue in the Austin area. It’s also pretty new, and it still smelled like fresh wood (one of my favorite smells). The venue features two barn-type buildings - one for a reception and one for a ceremony. The ceremony building has beautiful, large windows and ample space for the wedding party to get ready.

Amy and Kevin are such a cool couple. They met on Bumble, and when we first met they showed me their awesome first conversation that eventually led to their first date. (And their engagement session can be found here!) They even had me turn it into a giant poster to be displayed at their reception! They began their wedding day with a short ceremony at their local church, followed by a pre-reception at a bowling alley called Dart Bowl. They had lanes reserved for all of their guests while they waited for the reception at Gather to be set up. When everyone got to Gather, there were a couple of friends playing a song they wrote to welcome guests in. The reception venue was beautifully decorated and had a live band and a lively dance floor. They even did a paper plane exit, which is something I’ve never seen before!

I’ve known Megan for about 8 years now, so when she asked me to shoot her wedding I was thrilled! Her family and I go back to when I was in high school, so it was great seeing all of them, too. She and Mikey got married at a halfway point between Austin and Houston, called The Vine at New Ulm. It’s on a large, peaceful property in the country. Check it out below!

Larissa and Azat got married at the beautiful Mercury Hall. Their love for each other radiated throughout the venue and all of their guests were so excited to celebrate their love. I love Mercury Hall because you can decorate the space so freely, and the way they decorated the ceremony space was my favorite by far. Not to mention their dance floor was FULL for the whole night! Thank you to Marisa Vasquez Photo for having me as the second shooter!

As most native Austinites know, Pecan Springs Ranch is known for its beer toting donkeys. Each time I’ve photographed a wedding here, they always bring out the donkeys for a cute photo op.
Crawford and Sarah were nothing short of adorable, and their wedding was a blast to photograph. From the custom groomsmen suits with unique inner lining to the beautiful reception decorations, this wedding was one for the books.

I've known Kim for a few years now, so I was thrilled when she asked me to photograph her wedding at the beautiful Woodlands Country Club in Houston. I got to check out the venue when I photographed her bridals back in April. She and Nic are so crazy about each other and they're both really goofy, so this made for some great portraits of them! Luckily the country club wasn't too crowded on the day of the wedding, so we got to use a lot of different green spaces around the golf course. Their wedding was an absolute blast! They had Houston Astros themed cookies around the cake (Go Astros!) and the dance floor was full all night long. They also had a glass chicken they would drink out of, which was a huge hilarious inside joke between their wedding party members. It couldn't have been a more perfect day!

Sarah and Kerry got married at the gorgeous Rancho Mirando in Fischer, Texas. I actually got to photograph at this venue twice in May, and each time did not disappoint! The day was very relaxed, and it was still cool enough outside to leave all of the doors and windows open in the reception hall. The ceremony was in a gorgeous field overlooking the hill country, and when we brought the couple back out during sunset for more pictures, the sun hit everything perfectly. They also got married on May 5, so they had Cinco de Mayo themed elements throughout their wedding!

I first met Chloe at a coffeeshop called Flightpath in Austin, when she was looking for a wedding photographer. We hit it off immediately, and I absolutely loved getting to photograph her bridals too! This was my first time photographing at The Lookout, and it was such a gorgeous spot! Every detail that went into planning this wedding was perfect. They had the cutest details and decorations all throughout the venue, and the venue itself had a diverse range of spots to photograph Chloe & Garrett. Also, they had P. TERRY'S AND EAST SIDE KING CATER. Are you kidding?! Those are in my top 5 favorite restaurants in Austin! But I typically get very excited about food generally, lol!
