Style Me Pretty Feature {austin wedding photographer}

Today is a GREAT day! Not only was yesterday the most wonderful 1st Mother’s Day, but I woke up this morning to some fabulous news. Meagan and Dustin’s engagement shoot is featured on Style Me Pretty today! There are no words to tell you how excited I am about this… not only because it’s an honor, but because Meagan and Dustin are the most adorable couple alive. I am so looking forward to their wedding in June!


Family Sale {austin family photographer}

Families… you are in luck! Ever since bringing Little Dude into our home, I can’t help but feel all mushy when it comes to family. There is just something so great (yet so terrifying) about becoming a mommy for the first time. So, because I am in such a lovely mood, I would love to offer families a REALLY great deal for the entire month of May.  YES!!! This can include anything from newborn, senior portraits, or just your good ‘ol fashion family photos (with a modern twist). Sessions will include an online proofing gallery of ALL of your photos, along with a DVD of 30-50 HIGH-RES retouched images.

Are you ready for the AMAZING deal?? Only $200. Yes, that is correct… you are getting a whole $100 off of your session. I may be crazy, but you should probably take advantage of me during this oh-so-sweet new-mommy-moment.  :)

Nikki + Chris {austin engagement photographer}

These two are just so adorable… I can’t even begin to tell you. Their wedding is in August, and I can not wait. You can be sure that there will be loads of sweet family and friends there to celebrate this couple. They are the kind of people who just radiate love, and you just can’t help but want to be around them.

What to Wear {for the bride + groom to-be}

One of the most common questions I am asked by my bride and grooms to-be is… “What should we wear for our engagement photos?”

The answer is really very simple. Be YOU! Yes, there are a few things that I would steer away from, such as; your everyday tennis shoes (converse are the exception), super matchy-matchy, large writing and logos on your clothing, etc. However, there are some exceptions to the rules, but for the most part try to avoid those things.

This is not the same for every photographer, but I prefer everything very sweet and simple. Do you really want to look back at your photos 20 years from now and think, “Wow, that is not at all who we were.” Does anyone remember those Glamour Shots from the 90’s? You know, the place in the mall where they gave you big hair, hot pink lipstick, and sparkly clothes. I remember my Mom doing this (Sorry Mom!), and now when I see those photos of her I think, “That was not my Mom.” You want your photos to reflect who you are now as a couple, rather than the craziest/latest trends. Keep it simple and YOU. Don’t over-do it. Trust me, you won’t regret that decision.

Everyone knows of Pinterest, right? It’s one of my most favorite things. On my personal Pinterest, I have created a “What to Wear” board. Take a look around for some inspiration, and notice how simple everything is. When I look at these couples, I feel like I really have an idea of who they are.
