Valerie + Taylor {married in Terlingua}

When Valerie first contacted me about documenting her wedding, I told her she had me at “Terlingua!” We love all things west TX and always enjoy our time in the quiet desert landscape. Valerie and Taylor had a vision of their wedding day out in the west Texas desert, surrounded by their closest friends and family under the big Texas skies, and with the help of their nearest and dearest, they created the most magical day that was a total dream for us to document. This was definitely a labor of love. Valerie is a talented floral designer and created all of the stunning floral pieces herself. Taylor is a sous chef at one of Austin’s most-loved restaurants, Justine’s, and created the delicious menu for the evening. What they created together was a day filled with love and celebration. We felt so honored to witness this special day amongst this awesome group of people and help preserve these joyful memories for many years to come. Congrats Valerie + Taylor!

Stephanie + Cody {married}

You may remember Stephanie and Cody from their East Side engagement session, and Cody’s gorgeous vintage Cadillac! These two have so much style, so we were especially excited to see how they’d put their own stamp on their wedding day. I’m in love with Stephanie’s Jenny Packham dress! It suits her so well. And Cody looked sharp in his custom, green velvet jacket made by Austin’s Ghassan Karim. Stephanie and Cody celebrated in style with their friends and family downtown at Brazos Hall. Such a fun occasion to document! Congrats Stephanie and Cody!

Amber + Patrick {married}

Amber and Patrick tied the knot on a sunny February day at beautiful Ma Maison in Dripping Springs. We were thrilled to work with Ellen Westcott of Westcott Weddings on this one. Not only is she one of our favorite past brides, but she’s an amazingly talented event planner with a great eye for design and a lovely aesthetic. Bristol Lane provided the gorgeous florals and this stellar team created the perfect celebration for the newlyweds. Congrats Amber and Patrick!
