Casey & Tim | Engagement

What a fun couple. I don't think I've laughed so much during a session as much as we all did (my lovely assistants and I) on this shoot w/ Casey & Tim. Of course, the guy in the Speedo cleaning the condo pool across the street from us provided some laughs, and so did the shop owner that told us to "PROCEED!"... trust me, you just had to be there!

Casey and Tim did an amazing job and I'm so glad to have the opportunity to be a part of their special day coming up very soon. I hope you guys and gals enjoy looking at these pictures as much as I enjoyed taking them.












Tim made these signs when he proposed to Casey... so we found a cool way to put them to use. Again!

Thanks again for a great day and looking forward to the wedding!

Lauren & Kevin | Engagement

So Kevin is my usual (Houston) 'Lovely Assistant' on shoots. He's an aspiring photographer himself and he made sure I knew how awkward it was for him to be on the other side of the lens when we were taking pictures. Looks like he didn't miss a beat though... they rocked it, and after a few jokes we were rolling. Literally.

My brother gets married.

When my brother Fred asked me to shoot his wedding, I knew I couldn't do it. Not because I wasn't capable or wanted to, because I did, but because his wedding was probably the most important to me (other than mine, of course) and I wanted to enjoy every minute of it. I know, selfishness on my part! So my job became the recruiter of his wedding photographer.

I knew exactly who I wanted to do his wedding photography, but there was one problem... he didn't live in Austin. Matter of fact, he lived no where *near* Austin. He lives in San Francisco. But I knew his work would speak for itself, and it did.

I flew Jason ( down to Austin for Fred's wedding for a few days. Since distance was an issue, Jason agreed to do their engagement shoot on the Thursday before the wedding. Not only did he shoot the engagement shoot, he stayed up until 3 AM the following morning editing and posting the pictures on his blog! Now thats dedication!

As amazing and creative as the engagement session was, I had no idea how amazing the wedding pictures would come out. He absolutely knocked it out of the park. He captured Fred & Regina the best anyone has done in my opinion. The pictures are totally them and its a great reflection of how fun the wedding really was. I hope you guys/gals enjoy the pictures as much as I do, because I've looked at them about 20 times, just today!

The only thing I ask is that if you enjoy the pictures as much as I did, leave him a comment and let him know how talented, appreciated, and what a great of a photographer he is.

Here is Jason's blog post, check it out! FRED & REGINA'S WEDDING!
