Austin Rehearsal Dinner at The Belmont :: Heather & Rob

June 21st, 2011  |  Posted in weddings

I absolutely love photographing rehearsals dinners and this one was no exception!  It’s a great opportunity to get to know the families in a relaxed, fun atmosphere.  And, they get to know me better which makes them more comfortable with me during the wedding. By the end of the night I felt like I was just another member of their family.  I wonder if they’ll invite me to the next family reunion?

The rehearsal dinner was at the always swanky The Belmont in downtown Austin.  As you enter you’re instantly transported to the 1960s Las Vegas.

Junior League of Houston Bridal Portraits :: Stephanie

June 10th, 2011  |  Posted in bridal, portrait

We dedicate today to the lovely Stephanie!  Remember when I got to be the photographer-in-disguise to capture her surprise proposal?   Stephanie and I had more fun than should be allowed shooting her bridal portraits.  There was dancing to music that didn’t exist and jumping fences in a wedding gown.  Really!  We started at the lovely Junior League of Houston then Stephanie pulled on some killer kicks (a gift from her grandad!) and we headed to the country.

What better way to set the tone for a book themed wedding?  A knock-your-socks-off wedding invitation book, of course!
