Austin Wedding Photography - Kelsey & Chase at Casa Blanca

Sure there were severe thunderstorm warnings and flash flooding throughout central Texas, but that did nothing to dampen the spirits of this bride & groom and their guests at their wedding ceremony and reception at Casa Blanca in Round Rock. This wedding was shot—as usual—in support of the multi-talented Shauna Autry Photography.

Bastrop Family Photography - The Lambs

The Lambs are some of the nicest folks you could hope to meet. My wife and I have known them for years and they're always quick to lend a hand should you need it. They're also a lot of fun, and that trait has been successfully passed down to their daughter in spades.

With the addition of a son this winter it seemed appropriate to get some family photos done. I was honored and happy to oblige!

Austin Wedding Photography - 4th of July Photo Booth

When you get married on the 4th of July, it makes sense to play it up a bit. And when you get married, it makes sense that many of the guests may want to get a picture taken with the bridge and groom. Amy & Jed did both, with life-sized cutouts of themselves in front of a large American flag. It made for some odd photo combinations as you'll see.
