I took around 70,000 images last year. It’s a lot of pictures to go through, but I actually love this annual ritual of looking back. Especially when the editing process is over (WHEW) and I can just sit back and look at my year from this perspective. We had so much fun!! On the beach in Cancun, throwing holi powder, dancing up a storm – it was all a celebration of love. It’s no contest, my couples are the best. They are wonderful human beings and I love them. Without further ado, here are some of my favorite images from last year.

Happy 2o16! Every year I tear my hair out, going through THOUSANDS of images from a year’s worth of weddings to choose my 50 favorites for a ‘best of’ gallery in January. In 2013 we decided to go wild and design an entire digital magazine to showcase my favorite photos from the year. It turned out so well that we decided to do it AGAIN! Because, who needs to sleep, really. Our second annual book is finally here and I’m deee-lighted to share it with you!

These are my three favorite things about this stylish wedding brought to you by the fabulous team at CLINK: First, the most STUNNING modern mandap you’ve ever seen. Second, the most ADORABLE puppy (Mowgli) and three, this joyful couple ❤

These are my three favorite things about this stylish wedding brought to you by the fabulous team at CLINK: First, the most STUNNING modern mandap you’ve ever seen. Second, the most adorable puppy (Mowgli) and three, this joyful couple ❤

This has been the year of adorable dogs for us here at Studio Uma. Nearly every engagement session we’ve done has included at LEAST one canine companion. Plus a handful of our 2015 weddings as well. Not that we’re complaining… we’re suckers for these cuties!

This couple flew their little pup out to Austin from Seattle to celebrate with them, and he completely stole the show. Amila even had a henna tattoo of Mowgli drawn on her arm.

Enjoy!

Happy holidays everyone! We just wrapped up our most incredible wedding season ever. The last few months have been a beautiful blur of weddings and engagement sessions. AND THIS. This stunning couple eloped and it was a JOY to be a part of their special day.

Happy holidays everyone! We just wrapped up our most incredible wedding season ever. The last few months have been a beautiful blur of weddings and engagement sessions. AND THIS. This stunning couple eloped and it was a JOY to be a part of their special day.

Masha and James live in Manhattan, but their love for Austin brought them to our fair city for their elopement. Happily they chose lovely Hotel San Jose on South Congress Ave for their ceremony. We spent a little time there before going to Bull Creek for a portrait session.

I loved everything from the flowers in Masha’s hair, to the color of James’ bowtie. And Masha reminds me of Audrey Hepburn. What do you think?

Enjoy!

Meet Allie and Chris! This intrepid couple braved an outdoors photo shoot – in Austin in the summer – and lived to tell the tale. I love, love, love the locations they chose. Laguna Gloria with it’s classic style and we all know how I feel about Zilker Park. This gorgeous watery hideaway is my favorite spot in Austin, with or without a camera

Dogs should be at all weddings don’t you think? Especially these two. Abby and Simon were all dressed up as bride and groom and pretty much STOLE THE SHOW.

0 Comments

It was a perfect spring day in April for Dahlia and Ryan’s Four Seasons wedding. In fact, they got married twice in one day! The Four Seasons Hotel in downtown Austin is one of the most beautiful locations I know for a wedding. I love fusion weddings, and this was no exception. The day blended the Bengali Hindu rituals of Dahlia’s family with those of a traditional American wedding. Hands down, this was one of the best Four Seasons weddings I have been to. There was so much awesome at this wedding, between the TWO ceremonies, the gorgeous saris, the confetti explosion on the dance floor (you’ll see) and of course Abby and Simon.

 

Enjoy!

Wow, Dallas! I had no idea you were so gorgeous. And just so many options – everywhere I looked, I saw the perfect backdrop. You know what they say: location, location, location. I can’t say enough about how important photogenic locations are when it comes to these photo shoots. Imagine my delight when these lovebirds presented me with the historic Majestic Theatre in downtown Dallas. It feels like something out of the Great Gatsby. What. A. Treat.

We finished at the Winspear Opera House and the Arts District. I have to admit, I wish we had such dramatic architecture to work with in Austin!

I’m beyond honored that the editor-in-chief of JUNEBUG WEDDINGS asked me to be her wedding photographer. I am feeling blessed! The most wonderful brides and grooms just keep showing up…. Carrie is the talented, smart and stylish woman at the helm of my favorite wedding blog. She’s a born and bred Texan, graduate of the University of Texas at Austin (hook em horns) and is getting married on a bona fide Texas ranch. Her wedding dress is something truly special and is going to blow you away. But I’m getting ahead of myself! First, the engagement session. Meet Carrie and her handsome Phil.

I’m beyond honored that the editor-in-chief of JUNEBUG WEDDINGS asked me to be her wedding photographer. I’m giddy with excitement! The most wonderful brides and grooms just keep showing up and I am feeling blessed. Carrie is the talented, smart and stylish woman at the helm of my favorite wedding blog. She’s a born and bred Texan, graduate of the University of Texas at Austin (hook em horns) and is getting married on a bona fide Texas ranch. Her wedding dress is something truly special and is going to blow you away. But I’m getting ahead of myself! First, the engagement session. Meet Carrie and her handsome Phil.

In Austin we’ve had gray skies and temperatures in the 30s for weeks. Except for last Thursday afternoon. Carrie pulled some strings to get us a warm, sunny day with blue skies. We headed to Laguna Gloria, one of the most beautiful wedding venues in Austin.

You can read about Carrie’s adventures as she goes “From Blogger to Bride” on Junebug. Spoiler alert: the gorgeous colors she picked for her autumn wedding are cranberry, gold and dusty blue.

Junebug was founded by photographers and has the highest respect in our industry for showcasing the best wedding photography in the world. No pressure or anything right?

I dare you not to fall in love with Krishna and Rishi. Go ahead, just try to resist the charms of ‘RishKrish’! These two lucky ducks dreamed of being married outside. But with a February wedding date, no one was expecting it to actually happen. Amidst this unusually frigid, gray winter we’ve had in Austin, we were blessed with this one bright, warm Saturday in February. And that just happened to coincide with Krishna and Rishi’s wedding at the beautiful Oaks Event Center in Austin. I mean seriously – even Mother Nature warmed to these lovebirds.

I dare you not to fall in love with Krishna and Rishi. Go ahead, just try to resist the charms of ‘RishKrish’! These two lucky ducks dreamed of being married outside. But with a February wedding date, no one was expecting it to actually happen. Amidst this unusually frigid, gray winter we’ve had in Austin, we were blessed with this one bright, warm Saturday in February. And that just happened to coincide with Krishna and Rishi’s wedding at the beautiful Oaks Event Center in Austin. I mean seriously – even Mother Nature warmed to these lovebirds.

My favorite part of their wedding was being around this family that is just SO close and so loving. You can see it between Krishna and her affectionate parents. And Krishna’s haldi ceremony was the most intense I’ve ever seen! Let’s just say it was payback time for her cousins. They rubbed banana in her mouth, up her nose, and poured water on her. A water fight just broke out amongst everyone. Uncles were being carried out in blue tarps. Like I said – close family! It was a joy to behold these wonderful moments.

I want to share this epic shoot with everyone! Sadie and Aneel met in 8th grade and started dating in 9th. Twelve years later, they’re getting married. How lucky are these two? When I’m around them, it’s clear they’ve known each other since age fourteen. Truly a love for the ages.

I want to share this epic shoot with everyone! Sadie and Aneel met in 8th grade and started dating in 9th. Twelve years later, they’re getting married. How lucky are these two? When I’m around them, it’s clear they’ve known each other since age fourteen. Truly a love for the ages.

I’ve noticed that when you put a couple in a canoe, you can suddenly see how strong (or not) their connection is. A boat has a sneaky way of sliding around the water. It takes solid communication and patience to work together towards a common goal. And these two? They were in perfect sync. They worked together seamlessly to row their boat exactly where I wanted it to be on the water… right into that gorgeous golden hour light.

I can’t stress enough how important locations are in a photo shoot! Sadie settled on two of the most photogenic locations a photographer could ask for. The combination of a wonderful couple and gorgeous locations made for an incredible photo shoot.

Is it still February? Forget the cold and gloom for five minutes and spend some time with this warm, sunny, romantic engagement session!
