Got to spend an evening with these two lovebirds on South Congress here in Austin, Texas. Can't wait to meet their new addition.
My sister-in-law lives in Northern Idaho, so this past Christmas we took a trip up there to visit in hopes of experience some snow for the holidays. Unfortunately there was no snow to be had, except of course on our way to the airport to return to Texas. Fortunately the lack of snow was accompanied by some truly spectacular weather.
This could very well have been the easiest wedding shoot of all time. I'd had the pleasure of meeting Josh & Jessica while shooting a few other weddings, which meant lots of familiar faces. Combined with an amazing Hill Country evening at Stonehouse Villa food from East Side King and music provided by three bands (all of which Josh is part of), it was truly unforgettable.
I had so much fun shooting this wedding for former co-worker/friend Crystal and her husband Adrian. A church ceremony followed by a rooftop reception on South Congress avenue with just about the nicest late April weather you can possibly imagine. There were semi-choreographed dances, push-up contests, and food from Eastside King. What's not to like?
As is often the case I had the pleasure of shooting in support of Shuana Autry Photography for this spring wedding at Mercury Hall—one of my favorite Austin venues—that included a photo booth setup during the reception. Congratulations Allison & Bobby!
My wife and I took H. up to northern Illinois to visit her great grammie—my grammie—and thanks to the polar vortex she was able really play in copious amounts of snow for the first time. This is what happened when she inevitably tried to eat it.
Enjoyed some unseasonably warm but improbably perfect weather over the Thanksgiving holiday weekend for this shoot at Butler Park with some new Austinites by way of Illinois.
A few weeks ago I had the honor of documenting the wedding of these two kind folks with my friend Erica. All through the morning and into the afternoon the weather forecast didn't look good. It looked even worse as I drove through a downpour to get there.
Upon my arrival at The Inn at Wild Rose Hall however the rain stopped, the clouds eventually parted, and the sun came out leaving the ceremony to take place amongst the trees instead of indoors, and cooling down the late September evening nicely.
Congratulations to Grayson and Matt!
In the heat of the Texas summer you've got to cool down any way you can. For a 16 month old year old, there are fewer places better to do so than a splash pad.
H. would like to wish you all a happy Fourth of July! Be safe out there. Dress by Charlie & Mills.
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.

I had the pleasure of shooting the intimate wedding reception of Amy & Gerry this past weekend at Parkside in downtown Austin following their private, family-only wedding captured by Shauna Autry Photography Speaking of which, you may spot my regular wedding photo partner in crime in a few of these images as she got to enjoy the evening as a guest!

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!
