Winter Maternity Session

My beautiful sister-in-law and her husband are expecting their first child in April! They came up to visit this weekend from Houston and we got to take their pictures before the ice hit!! We are so excited to meet baby Emma 🙂

Robyn and Andy’s Winter Wedding {Sacred Oaks at Camp Lucy in Dripping Springs, TX}

Well, here it is, the last wedding I photographed in 2016! Robyn and Andy are an incredible couple and I’m so thankful to have been their photographer for this very special day! Family and friends gathered at Sacred Oaks at Camp Lucy to celebrate this couple on what might have been the coldest day of the year 🙂 The chilly temps didn’t put a damper on the day, as we got hundreds of really wonderful pictures of the gorgeous wedding party, ceremony, bride and groom and their families! As the wedding party walked down the aisle to “Here Comes the Sun,” the groomsmen surprised the bridesmaids by sacrificing their jackets at the end of the aisle, an act for which they were applauded by the bundled up crowd! So thankful that 2.5 years after meeting Robyn at her brother’s wedding, I got to photograph the JOY of her and Andy’s day! Thank you to Leah Boaz for 2nd shooting this wedding with me. If you get cold looking at these pictures, you can warm up with a look back at Robyn and Andy’s engagement session in July 🙂 Enjoy this preview of the wedding day images:

Sean and Anna’s OSU Alumni Center Wedding

Anna and Sean were married December 16th, which was also Anna’s parents’ 38th anniversary! We were very fortunate with the weather, as the 16th was the best day possible that week, sandwiched between bitterly cold days!! The ceremony and reception were at the OSU Alumni Center, with a dinner for family following at the couple’s home. This sweet wedding included a “puppy of honor,” along with the best man, maid and matron of honor! Check out the awesome wedding cake and toppers, representing this musical duo. The couple exited through the tunnel of love of friends and family ringing bells. I’ve enjoyed every moment of working with Anna and Sean; from the surprise proposal where I tried to hide behind a fake tree and time the shutter clicks to Anna’s laughter to engagement session on campus, and finally, the beautiful wedding celebration. And now their adventure begins!!

Thank you to Paige Wallace for 2nd shooting the ceremony with me. Flowers by Flourishes. Cake by Cake Crazy.

Charlotte is 2!

We danced, played, composed, were a little silly and had a lot of fun for Charlotte’s 2 year portrait session!!! Love you guys!

Katie and Pete’s Wedding Weekend {The Retreat at Balcones Springs}

Down the winding roads of FM 1431 between Cedar Park and Marble Falls, 45 min NW of Austin, TX lies a very special place. Pictures of the signs alone bring back so many happy memories of this place I love. Prepare yourself for a wedding at camp! Complete with all the fun, beauty, style and emotion you can imagine. Katie and Pete’s wedding celebration was a weekend event, starting with the rehearsal Friday night then Saturday morning games and lake activities, all leading up to the heart-felt and memorable ceremony in the rose garden. The gorgeous reception under the pavilion capped off the night! I can’t think of a more perfect place to share a weekend with your family and closest friends than The Retreat at Balcones Springs. Of course it will always have a place in my heart from the years I worked there, and I’m so thrilled that Katie and Pete decided on this location for their wedding. Flowers by Cutting Edge Floral in Marble Falls. Thank you to Leah Boaz for 2nd shooting this wedding with me. Enjoy these highlights from an incredible wedding!
