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!

Location, location, location. One of the things I love most about planning an Austin bridal photo shoot is the incredible choice of stunning locations. And I wow did I ever find a gem in Lustre Pearl. A bar may not be the first place you think of as a romantic, photogenic backdrop. But if you think about photography in terms of beautiful light and color – it’s a no brainer. Add a gorgeous bride to the mix and poof. MAGIC.

Location, location, location. One of the things I love most about planning an Austin bridal photo shoot is the incredible choice of stunning locations.

But if you think about photography in terms of beautiful light and color – it’s a no brainer. Add a gorgeous bride to the mix and poof. MAGIC.

And oh, the SHOES. If spiky Louboutin pumps get your heart racing, keep your eyes peeled.
