Hutto, Texas | Portrait Collaboration | Paige

Paige is one of my absolute favorites to collaborate with! She has the best sense of style and I am always super jealous of her outfits (um… those heart jeans!!) You can check out her blog for more awesome outfit ideas. She is constantly putting together killer outfits and giving great advice on how you can have killer outfits, too. Her Instagram is an absolute must-follow. Trust me. If you’re not following her you’re missing out…

Austin, Texas | Commercial Headshots | Erica Vargas

Shooting with Erica is always a fantastic time! She is such a natural in front of the camera. She has the biggest happiest smile of all time ever. You can feel the joy in her soul in each photograph. When she contacted me for updated headshots, I was so excited. She wanted to do them in her beautiful home and I am so thrilled we got to shoot there! Her home is gorgeous and made for the perfect backdrop! You really get a sense of who she is as a person in these photographs and I am so in love with them.

Hutto, Texas | Portrait Collaboration | Lauren

Lauren was kind enough to come to Hutto to our in-home studio to work on some new lighting techniques! We got these colored gels and wanted to do a little testing on them before we take them out of the studio and into our portrait sessions. I think they look pretty good, but I’m excited to see them used in an outdoor session where we have a little more room to play around. They’d be especially fun in another cosplay shoot, too. Excited to use them again!

Kansas City, Missouri | Engagement Session | Jessica and Zach

We had such a fun session with Jessica and Zach. They are so hilarious and playful together that the entire session was a posing dream! They barely needed any direction and were naturals in front of the camera. I can’t wait for their wedding day! I am so excited to share a few of the images from their session with you!

Austin, Texas | Wedding Photography | Amanda and Michael

Austin, Texas | Cosplay Photography | Ally Lucas' Link Barbarian Armor from Breath of the Wild

We got to shoot something a little different last week!  We have done a few projects with Ally Lucas and when she mentioned she was doing a cosplay set from Breath of the Wild we knew we HAD to be a part of it!  Breath of the Wild was one of my favorite games from 2017, so it was really fun photographing cosplay I was really familiar with.  I have been wanting to try out some creative cosplay photography for a while now, so this was the perfect opportunity.  We met up at Austin's Walnut Creek Metropolitan Park to give us a backdrop that was reminiscent of the BOTW series. I am really proud of how this set turned out.  Ally will be at a few conventions this year in Austin, so if you see her be sure to say "Hello"! :)

Mission, Kansas | Wedding Photography | Mr. and Mrs. Sanderson

Mr. and Mrs. Sanderson had the most beautiful wedding day at Mission Theater.  Their whole day was absolutely full of joy.  The Mission Theater is a gorgeous venue, and it provided a beautiful backdrop for a fantastic wedding.  These two are so absolutely in love.  One of my favorite parts of their day was the first look.  These two had been waiting all morning for the moment they'd be reunited and you could tell that the moment they first saw each other again they were overjoyed just to be together.  Their friends and family all told us stories of what amazing people these two were, and we are so blessed to have witnessed them joining together as husband and wife.  I am so thrilled to share these images with you from their day.  

A special thanks to all of the vendors involved in creating their perfect day will be listed at the bottom of our post.

Austin, Texas | Wedding Photography | Mr. and Mrs. Talamantez-Graham

Brook and David had an absolutely stunning wedding day on Brook's family's farmland.  The day started with each of them spending the morning with their bridesmaids and groomsmen in the family's gorgeous cabin.  Their ceremony was made extra special with the addition of Brook's father acting as officiant.  It made their ceremony feel cozy and genuine.  I felt like every little detail put into their wedding day showed you something personal about them.  Their time abroad together, their love of books, and Studio Ghibli.  All of their friends and family made us feel like a welcomed addition to their day.  We were so blessed to have been a part of it and we are so thrilled to share our favorite images with you all!
