As I was sneaking down a gravel road headed towards Three Graces Cabin I could literally feel my heart pumping. The ground was covered in oak leaves and every step sounded like I was stepping on a bag of Doritos! I texted Andres to let him know I was[...]
There is nothing quite like your dog waking you up or running to the door when you come home from a long day. They will love you unconditionally wether you are the CEO or homeless. Anytime a client wants to bring their dog to the engagement portrait [...]
2016 was an amazing year. I photographed weddings in Costa Rica, Alaska and all over Texas, proposals in Texas, Hawaii & Colorado and commercial jobs in San Francisco. I took over 70,000 images and photographed some amazing people and wouldn't ch[...]
Proposal's are photography gold. They are emotional, raw, unscripted and most of all a pure joy to photograph. As soon as a knee is taken everything is off the table. Will she cry, scream, laugh, cuss, drop her purse or all the above?!
As soon as [...]
Part of the fun of proposals is keeping a secret especially if I know the couple. Add to that the logistics of a proposal in Oahu, Hawaii and it becomes just plain surreal! In a day in age when everything is posted online during or immediat[...]
"I can't stop kissing you!" says McKenzie to Hunter soon after he dropped down to one knee on a cool December afternoon. Yesterday's proposal was truly special as she was completely surprised and said yes to marrying the man of her dreams.
It's how we handle the things we don't plan for that makes us who we are. Adrianne and Ben certainly didn't want it to rain on their wedding day but they both had faith they would still marry the person of their dreams.
For the past two [...]
After watching some of the debate last night it was huge relive to see the joy, love and passion from Chip & Brooke's wedding pics. It was everything the debate wasn't...positive, relaxed, beautiful and most of all a blast! People always ask me i[...]
"Do you have the ring?"
That is the LAST question a wedding photographer wants to see/hear the best man ask...especially DURING the ceremony. It's like kryptonite for the best man to not have the ring. As I frantically searched my pockets (while s[...]
One of the best things about photographing weddings is getting to know the families. To help everyone feel comfortable in front of the camera, I get to know not only the bride and groom but parents, grandparents, aunts, uncles & cousins. This o[...]
Movies are dramatic if not down right ridiculous sometimes. Ever seen a action adventure movie and the bad guy falls thru 4 stories of a building and then gets up slowly like it was no big deal? I stub my toe and I'm down for a week.
Dogs know people. They sense if your not feeling well, stressed, leaving on a trip or in love. Casey's dog Cooper is no exception. Cooper embraced Tracy with open paws. He trusts Tracy with his kindness, character, and of course with Casey.
Photographing Kaylee & Hayden in San Marcos for their engagement photos at at their wedding at Terrace Club in Dripping springs I realized something special. They are in love no doubt, but its a comfortable relationship between them that makes it[...]
When I first spoke with Cody & Cynthia about their wedding at Kindred Oaks in Austin I was very honored that solely based on my work and a phone call (that felt like I was speaking with a old friend rather than someone I had never met) they hired[...]
Joy, laughter, family and having a blast are what Zach & Amy tick. Those are the things that keep us going and Zach & Amy are no strangers to that.
The day of the wedding just had that special feel to it. Everyone was relaxed, the guys wer[...]
They say absence makes the heart grow fonder and it shows with Danielle who lives in Vegas and Victor who lives in Wyoming. With plans to move back together later this fall, I'm sure these two love birds can hardly wait!
I had never met them befor[...]
Photographed a wedding at Vista West Ranch recently for the celebration of Amy & Adam. I thought for a second I was at a Jayhawk tailgate as one of Adam's relatives rolled into town in a RV and there were multiple guests with Jayhawk shirts on. [...]
After waiting a long & patient 7 years Joe & Chase tied the knot on a day filled with rain, then sun, then rain again only to be followed by blue skies the rest of the day. Welcome to Texas amigos! The grooms never let that deter them and ke[...]
Whats the best way to be photographed on the day of your wedding? Be yourself, confident and let loose! What happens after that are candid, natural photographs that truly show the emotion of the day.
Rachel & Trey did exactly that. They laughe[...]
Kevin has the type of job we dream about as kids and respect as adults. He is a firefighter in Houston protecting our homes, businesses and most of all our families. That type of commitment, honor and integrity was evident with Madison, his family a[...]
Friends & family are everything. They are the ones that support, cheer and gladly fly over 2,000 miles to see you marry the love of your life in Tamarindo, Costa Rica. Best part about it...wifi is not so good. Time to tell stories, relax on the b[...]
Was very honored to be asked by Ma Maison to be a part of their 2nd Anniversary Party yesterday! It was an amazing day and over 400 people stopped by to make it a huge success and wonderful party. Here are a few of the pics and check out the rest at [...]
I've known Mike for over 7 years and he is genuine, fun and most of all a blast to be around. When he first called to say he was getting married and wanted me to photograph his wedding I couldn't have been happier. Peas in a pod, cut from the same cl[...]
"We're gonna warn ya. The wedding guests will be a mix of old school Dripping Springs hippies and a Mariachi band." Needless to say I was hooked and I've never seen so many people dance as long as they did. It was photography bliss.
Now I've seen [...]
