Austin Wedding Photography – Lake Travis Wedding

When Erika and Eric asked me if I would like to document their wedding in Austin, Texas, I was really looking forward to it. Any time I’m able to travel to a new place and do what I love as a wedding photographer it’s like a double bonus. Plus, who doesn’t love Austin wedding photography? The wedding took place on Lake Travis at the Lakeway Resort overlooking some of the best views that the Texas Hill Country has to offer. It was planned to be a gorgeous outdoor sunset wedding, but alas, a gloomy cold front put a damper on those plans. Nevertheless, Erika braved the cold and we were able to get some romantic wedding portraits out on the balcony.

For Austin Wedding Photography, the Lakeway Resort and Spa is a great place to have a wedding and has lots of space for portraits. As a Wedding Photographer from Houston, it’s always a treat when we get to experience Weddings away from our home town. Needless to say, I had a great time and want to thank Erika and Eric for entrusting me with recording your memories that will be around forever.

Imelka and Rick – Portraits at The Houstonian

Imelka and Rick got in touch with me by way of an old friend and Bride who’s wedding I shot many moons ago. It’s always nice to make new friends by way of past Brides. Despite being in the middle of December, the climate outside was quite muggy, a common contradiction of weather and season here in Houston.

The Houstonian Hotel and Spa is one of my favorite places to shoot.  We did the First Look Portrait session there in the front garden of The Houstonian beneath their giant Lighted Oak Tree. Their wedding was an intimate affair, with close friends and family witnessing their union, and later joining them for dinner at Eddie V’s Prime Seafood Restaurant at Citycenter. I loved the free-flowing emotion in this wedding. The tears. The laughter. The affectionate gazing. Every bit of it.

Congratulations, Imelka and Rick. I hope you enjoy the photos we made together.

Destination weddings are something that most wedding photographers want to do at some point in their career. You get to do what you love in a gorgeous location that’s not in your hometown. When they’re on the white sands of a beach overlooking crystal blue water, great images are afoot.

Vanesa and Bryan wanted to get married on the pristine beaches of Destin, Florida. What do you get when you have a great looking couple, great looking beaches, with the joy and excitement of a beach wedding? Well look and see:

Analy and Elmer – Humble, Texas Wedding

You may remember seeing Analy and Elmer here a couple of times before. We did their Engagement Photos a few months before their wedding, and then we did Analy’s Bridals, which were just awesome if you ask me 🙂

Well at long last I’ve gotten around to blogging their wedding images. The Bridal Party started the day off with the girls having lunch and the guys hanging out and playing a little football. (If you can’t tell, they’re HUGE Houston Texans Fans) It was an emotional ceremony that really made for some great moments, you could just feel the anticipation and excitement! The rain restricted our post ceremony portraits but we were able to grab a few before it really came down, and once we got to the reception the live band really kept things alive.

Congratulations Analy and Elmer!

Xanthe and Cody – Outdoor Houston Wedding

I’ve known Xanthe and Cody for a few years, so it was an honor for me to document this most special day for them and craft some images that I hope will be treasured for a long, long time. I always love when couples choose to be married in an outdoor wedding ceremony. When the weather cooperates, there’s nothing else like it.

Enjoy, Xanthe and Cody’s outdoor wedding at Shirley Acres in Spring, Texas.
