seminary of the southwest weddings | jillian and sam multi-colored wedding

Jillian and Sam had an amazing wedding with some of the craziest dancing I’ve seen at the Seminary of the Southwest. The bride looked amazing in her bird veil and BCBG dress, she actually reminded us of Keira Knightly! There were a lot of theatre and Winedale people, and it was reflected in the lovely toasts that were given. Jillian made a 1000 cranes for the wedding, and everything looked colorful and fun! They also climbed a tree during the portrait session, which made me a bit nervous, but showed what an adventurous couple they are!

birth

These are photos from my daughter’s birth. Taken by the amazing photographer Cory Ryan.

We tried for a home birth, and had to transfer to the hospital because of blood pressure issues. And then labored for 20 hours, until finally a c-section. It was a long and hard day, but in the end, we had an wonderful baby. My life is completely changed.

hummingbird house wedding | austin wedding photographers | maria and nate

I always love shooting at Hummingbird House, and the weather was perfect for this wedding. The flowers were in full bloom and everything was alive and verdant!

The bride was stunning, and I think in the photo above she has a Natalie Portman like look about her. It was wonderful to see the love the couple have for each other, and the love their family poured on the couple.

The reception dancing was lively and they ended with Queen’s Bohemian Rhapsody as the last song. The entire dance floor erupted in song as people sang their hearts out to Queen. It was probably the most epic last song I’ve seen done.

balloons engagement session | pecan springs ranch | austin weddings

This amazing engagement session was styled by Heather from Vintage and Lace. We ran into surprisingly strong winds for Texas and it was quite an endeavor trying to get the balloon to stay in place, but we managed! I love the dresses that the bride wore, simply beautiful.
