This romantic morning session was at the Austin Rowing Club docks and it was so still and peaceful to be by the water with these 2! Their love for each other is so evident and I love getting to hide behind my camera and watch how couples interact and look at each other- it’s precious. JT and Regan are currently living long distance and it’s a joy to see them together when they get the chance. Distance makes the heart grow fonder and these two definitely are bursting with love.

Enjoy this sweet couple!

 

 JT and Regan are engaged!!!!!

This was a well thought through sweet proposal to be a part of. The Botanical Gardens in Austin was where JT’s parents got married. As a parent, this would be so special to experience my kids getting engaged where Branden and I got married- melt me! Regan followed a map down to the point where JT popped the question. After looking through a scrapbook JT made her of their story, he read her some scripture from the Bible and then hit his knee. She was smitten and the ring was everything she dream- he nailed it!

What a celebration of good things that are to come and this was just the beginning- congratulations JT and Regan!! It was an honor take these.

Not even the weather could damper the joy from this couple and the hundreds of people at this wedding. Threatened by a huge storm passing through, we weren’t sure how things were going to turn out. Looking back it was one of the smoothest and most energetic weddings I’ve ever been to. Lauryn and Michael have the greatest of friends and their energy only contributed to that perfect feel of this day. I still can’t get over how clean and crisp all of the decor was. From start to finish this is one for the books. Congratulations Lauryn + Michael!

At one point during this bridal session, Lauryn’s mom said out loud, “I think this picture could win a photo contest or something!” I remember thinking how much I agreed simply because of how comfortable and relaxed Lauryn was in front of the camera. Any photographer knows how rare that is. I think you will love checking out this session.

Lauryn, you have such a sweet spirit and I so loved how open you were to all of my photographing ideas and adventures! You rock!

Congratulations, Lauryn!

Rivals and soul mates! Meet Emma and Nathan. Nathan is a recent graduate of AggieLand and Emma is a recent graduate of the 40 Acres here in Austin. They are both the most genuine and precious souls out there. Gentle, playful, kind, and thoughtful only begin to describe them.

There was something special about this shoot and I was honored to be a part of it.

They are getting married the middle of December and are giddy to tie the knot.   🙂
