Style Me Pretty features Austin wedding :: Heather and Rob, Part I

May 30th, 2011  |  Posted in published work, weddings

I distinctly remember the first time I met Heather.  I was a nervous wreck because she had been referred by Rachel LaCour Niesen, a fellow photographer whom I greatly admire both professionally and personally. The pressure! Within minutes of meeting Heather I knew I just had to shoot her wedding.  She loves books, wine and chocolate and has a heart for helping others — a kindred spirit! And then I met Rob and I knew I loved this couple.  Rob indulges my geeky side.  He even brought a light saber to the engagement session and if you don’t know, I’m a big Star Wars fan!

I am thrilled that Heather and Rob’s wedding is our first wedding to be featured on Style Me Pretty because their celebration embodied the true essence of a wedding. Yes, it was a gorgeous, perfectly orchestrated affair, but what made it shine were the details and sentiments woven throughout the weekend were a reflection of Heather and Rob and a reflection of their gratitude for the family and friends gathered to share their wedding.

I got to spend a lot of time with Heather and Rob at their engagement session, Heather’s bridal portraits, their rehearsal dinner (coming soon!) and finally the wedding.  My one true hope is that the depth of character, emotion and nuances that I witnessed along the way are reflected in my photographs.  I wish you a life of love and joy.

Austin Engagement Session at Antone’s :: Channing & Roy

May 4th, 2011  |  Posted in engagement, portrait

Antone’s has been a major force in the Austin live music scene since 1975 and has hosted some of the biggest names in music.  All fame aside, for Channing and Roy it will forever be the place they first met.  I was thrilled when Channing suggested we drop in during their engagement session because something magical happens when a couple is in a place or situation that is meaningful for them.  It’s transformative.  You move beyond a nice picture to something deeper – a glimpse into the bigger story of their life together with a hint of all the little things that brought them to this day.  Channing and Roy did not disappoint!  Look at these two!  100% completely in love, in the place where it all started, lost in their own private story and totally oblivious to the camera!
