Rachel & Patrick | Austin Engagement Photographer


It’s rare I get to do engagement photos, mostly because I don’t photograph weddings.  When I do, I looooove it!  These two were so fun!!  We actually bartered for these, Jase and I were in the market for some gym equipment for our new home gym in the garage (we just did a garage reno).  Rachel and Patrick had some to sell and needed engagement photos for their wedding next year.  It was a win/win for all of us and I’m so glad it worked out.  They are the sweetest couple….the last group of shots with the champagne are my favorite, they both work in the beverage industry, so it was perfect to incorporate that in to their session.  Congrats you two, thanks for being such a blessing to our family.  I’m positive both your wedding and marriage will be beautiful!

magic is right | austin couples photographer

Michele and I went downtown tonight to photograph the winner of our Helping Hearts for Haiti session.  Michele called the night magic and boy is she right.  These night sessions are truly something special, I think I am getting addicted them.  Seriously, there is just something so challenging, so creative, so romantic about being out with a couple in love after dark that I absolutely love.  And these two showed up ready for anything!!  Aren’t they adorable?!

And I have to give a HUGE thank you to my wonderful clients and owners of Blu who allowed us to raid their amazing venue for awhile tonight.  If you’re in Austin and you’ve never been to Blu, you’re missing out, that place rocks!

dancin’ | austin couples photographer

I was so honored when Elizabeth booked a session with me before starting out on a new grand adventure.  I still can’t get over the fact that they have known one another since pre-k.  How amazing is that?!  Love it…..



I love that i was able to convince them to show me some of their dancin’ moves down on the bridge!  I was impressed!





Thanks again you two, Austin will miss you!!

on the verge of a grand adventure | austin couples photographer

It is such an honor when another photographer hires me to photograph their family.  Elizabeth contacted me because she wanted some photos of her and her husband…..


These two met in preschool.  How crazy cool is that?!  I would love to have known my husband for almost my entire life.  They are such a nice couple with a fun, sweet love that just shines through.  They also happen to be right on the verge of a very grand adventure.  They are picking up and moving to Maine after having lived in Texas their entire lives.  And get this…..they have never even been to Maine….oh man, what a great time they are going to have, exploring a new place, young and in love.

Elizabeth & Eric, I wish you all the best with your big move!  Thank you for entrusting me to capture you and your love for one another tonight, it was an honor.
