Jentri and Ryan | A Texas Hillcountry wedding at Montesino Ranch

I’m so excited to get to share Jentri and Ryan’s wedding!
I’ve known Jentri since my little one was born and that’s actually how I met this lovely bride!  I needed someone caring to come to my house and hang out with the kiddo so I could work on pretty photos!   When we connected back on Facebook a few years later, it was like faith!  Jentri and Ryan had just gotten engaged and she told me she had been thinking about me!  If you know me at all, you know that I get extra happy when someone I know asks me to take their photos- specially for such an important event!

Fast forward to the big day at Montesino Ranch!
I was so excited to see these two love birds and to get to meet Ryan!  There were just so many good things that came together that day!  Lovely people, a beautiful place in the heart of TX Hillcountry, Crazy TX weather and lots and lots of good times!  I am so honored to have been part of this beautiful wedding!
Thank you Jentri and Ryan for making us feel like family at your wedding!  xx

Laura and Kate | Austin wedding at Barr Mansion

I am so happy to share Laura and Kate’s wedding with you!
I met these two lovely ladies via a mutual friend and photographer and I am so glad that I did!   They are the most laid back, sweet and lovely girls you’ll ever meet!  I got to hang out with them a couple of times before their big day and each time, it just made me more and more excited to be their photographer.
Their wedding was at the always amazing Barr Mansion. It’s always a treat to shoot a wedding there, specially when it’s for people like Laura and Kate.  With their friends and family gathered and their good friend overseeing the ceremony, these two tied the knot under the beautiful trees at Barr Mansion.
I think I should just let you look at the photos since they tell the story much better than my words!

Shipley | Austin Newborn Photography

Happy Monday!
I got to meet sweet Shipley just a few days ago and take photos of him, his cutie-pie big sister and their mom and dad! Today, as I am sitting here looking through the photos and getting prepared to start editing, I just could not help but post a little preview!
Can you even stand the cuteness?!!!

Editing | Why does it take weeks to get your wedding photos back?

What a night!
You got married in a flurry of love, happiness and it was all a whirlwind- right?  You probably saw your photographer from the corner of your eye here and there and she was there directing you during the portraits.   You know there were lots of photos taken and you just can’t wait to see them all!

I don’t blame you!
I come home from a wedding and I’m excited too!  Usually the next day, I pour over the images and pull a few favorites to send to my couples because I know they want a few glimpses of their big day as soon as possible!  This is usually met with a lovely response which basically makes my day!  I love doing this!

If you are that bride, you might not see another “here are some photos” email from me for a bit.   Depending on the season it can take a few weeks for everything to be edited.  Who are we kidding?  There is no “season” in TX right?  People get married pretty much year around here!
Now, I know every photographer has their own methods and workflow.  Some have editing assistants in house, some outsource their edit work, some do minimal editing and some do extensive editing on their own.  If you have researched your photographer and talked to them, you probably have a pretty good idea of what they do and what their turnaround times are.
One thing I can tell you is that you should never be shy about asking!  We much rather you ask and let us help clear up a question, than to have you wonder and think we might have forgotten about your photos!

I have a philosophy.  This is something I think about when I pick out the final count of photos to be edited, when I edit the images, when I blog or when I put them on my website or Instagram!
Here it goes:   I want every image out there with my name on it to be edited well!
Sound simple enough right?  Well, I tell you, editing photos well takes a whole lot of time but it’s usually so worth it!
When I edit an image and transform it from what came out of the camera to a striking photo, I just get so excited!   I know that when my couples get their photos they don’t really think about that or will ever really know what the “before” photo might have looked like.  My hope is that each bride and groom sees their final images and love them!

So back to what brought on this post!

I was looking back at some photos from 2015 today. Photos that I love but somehow they never made it to the blog or my website.  I started editing and I want to share that with you.  Check it out!
Here are a few before and after images!  Pretty big difference right?

 Let me know what you think!

Xoxo!

Lauren and Scott | A Reserve at Lake Travis wedding

The Reserve at Lake Travis is a really special place and I’ve had the pleasure to shoot a few weddings out there.
Lauren and Scott’s wedding made the place even more special!  Their wedding was just so beautiful and they were the best!

We had a bit of rain to deal with, but did that stop them or dampen their mood?
Not at all!  It was so lovely to be there for their big day!  I had a blast with them and I’ve got photos to prove it!

Thank you Lauren and Scott!  I wish you love and happiness!
