Say it ain't so! My photography contract with Horn-Ball Tailgaters has come to an end. It has been an absolute blast getting to photograph these events, and I hope I will be back for it next year!

The party was HOPPIN' before the UT vs Kansas game. I don't think I've seen people dance so much before outside of a wedding! Check out the photos from the event below, and let me know if you need photography for an event covered!

Becca & Tim | Wedding BTG-309BTG-309

Tim was in a car club I used to be a part of (before I started BAMBOOZLED) and when I saw him looking for a wedding photographer, I of course had to offer my services! Tim is a great guy - I photographed his Shelby GT350 in the past, and he's just a laid back and easy going person, and I love working with people who don't stress out too much.

I didn't realize it until I got there for their wedding day, but I actually went to high school with Becca, and worked with her brother. Funny how small the world can be sometimes! 

Becca and Tim put on a great wedding! Complete with a fireworks show and everything. Loved seeing these two tie the knot and being there to capture it all. Check out my favorites below, and let me know if you need a wedding photographer!

Adrain | Birthday A_GR-98A_GR-98

I met up with Danielle after she reached out to me to see if I could photograph a surprise birthday party she was throwing for her husband, Adrain. We met up at a coffee shop, and really just had a conversation for about an hour. She was genuinely just a cool and fun person to chat with, but I did get to learn more about the birthday party she was throwing for Adrain: surprise birthday party at The Range, an Austin gun range.

I've only been to the gun range once in my life, so I wasn't sure what to really expect but it seemed like a fun idea. So the day finally came, and it went really well! Adrain was surprised, and everyone got to shoot some really cool firearms from pistols to ARs.

Joshua | Rollers JS-DUC-8JS-DUC-8

I really need to do more rolling shots for motorcycles. I met up with Joshua for some downtown rollers on Sunday morning and really love what we were able to capture. We switched things up this time by mounting my camera to the other side of my car to get a better angle on the important bits of his bike, and it really helped the overall look.

Fly Unfeathered - INFERNI FUI-332FUI-332

Fly Unfeathered put on another delightful and curious show at the Sekrit Theater a couple weeks ago called INFERNI. The story follows Dante through the 9 circles of Hell, and the show was full of great aerial and dance performances, complete with incredible visuals and costumes.

Plus, how many people can say they've been served a cocktail by Cerberus? 

I highly recommend giving Fly Unfeathered a follow so you can get in on the next show they do! Check out the photos from the performance below, and let me know if you need photography coverage at your next event!

Horn-Ball Tailgaters | UT vs OSU HBTG-179HBTG-179

Horn-Ball Tailgaters came back with another fun event prior to the UT vs OSU game this last weekend! This time they got to utilize the big lot that sits caddy-corner, which created so much more space for these fans to come and party before the game. 

Lots of out of town visitors for this one, too! Folks from all over the place - Boston, New York, Oklahoma, Miami... Check out the gallery or the slideshow below to see what the vibe was all about this week!

Perla & Jonathan | Wedding PJM-131PJM-131

Perla & Jonathan
When: August 14th, 2021
Ceremony: Chapel Dulcinea

It's not very often you meet someone as charismatic and friendly as Jonathan, nor someone as sweet as Perla. I've photographed the weddings of a few of Perla and Jonathan's friends (shoutout to Amy and Austin, and Kristy and Matt!), and Perla and Jonathan were referred by them to me. I love getting to photograph weddings of friends of couples I've photographed in the past! It lets me see some familiar faces, and just changes the dynamic a bit in a great way.

Perla and Jonathan had this perfect reservation slot at Chapel Dulcinea right before sunset, and... well if you look at the photos below, you'll see why it was perfect. We got some shots with a killer sunset behind them. This beautiful couple made the whole shoot very easy. 

Check out my favorites from their wedding below, and reach out to me if you have a wedding coming up and are still looking for a photographer!

Illuminatra Private Party | Event Illuminatra-11Illuminatra-11

I've met some incredible performers through Lache and the Fly Unfeathered shows, and one of those people was Mary with Illuminatra. She invited me out to photograph their performances at a private party at Casa Cartel, and... just WOW! I love photographing performance art, but this setting was just a whole 'nother level of sweet.

They did everything from fire spinning acts to different aerials, and even had a big inflatable ball in the pool they could climb inside. It was a lot to take in, but I am so glad I got to be a part of capturing the magic.

Check out my favorites from the shoot below, and let me know if you have some performance art you'd like me to capture!

Jesse's Moving Away Shoot | Rollers BAM_JFC-58BAM_JFC-58

My good friend Jesse had to move to Indiana for work, but before he left we did a short cruise just for him. Before that cruise, I wanted to get some rolling shots of his car before he left. So I invited him and the car club out to my downtown route and knocked out some rollers for them.

It was a perfect morning for them, too! Light traffic, little overcast, and of course they brought the sexiness with their cars.

Phil | Rollers PW-18PW-18

Too many people sleep on the Kia Stinger, but it's one of the quickest 4-door cars on the market! And I got to meet up with Phil and take some rolling shots of his ride in downtown Austin.

Not a whole lot to say other than it's a beautiful car, sounds great, and it was a blast getting to roll down these city streets with him.

Alexander & Cheryl | Rollers ACK-140ACK-140

It's not every day you get to take photos of 700+ HP cars, or take a photo with 1400+ HP in it! But a few weeks ago it was that day for me. I took photos of Alexander and Cheryl's cars before back when she drove a Mustang GT, but she made a little upgrade to a GT500 recently and wanted to show it off.

So we met up downtown and did the Congress bridge route, and then I took them to my favorite parking garage rooftop to get some skyline photos. These guys take the term "power couple" to a whole new level, and I was glad to be able to take these photos for them.

Don & Rob & Jenn | Rollers DRJ-34DRJ-34

My car club held a contest and I put up a rolling shot session as one of the prizes. Don won first place and we setup a time to get together for his session. His Mercedes is IMMACULATE! Very beautiful car, and it made me excited to do the shoot.

So we hit up 360 and tried a couple of angles and got some really spectacular shots. I usually invite members of the car club out after I finish a session to take photos of their cars, too (hey, I am out here anyway, right?), and got some great rolling shots of their cars.

Car Club September '21 Cruise | Event & Rollers BAM9-21-19BAM9-21-19

As some of y'all know, I started up a car club earlier this year. Last weekend, we went on our third club cruise! This is a time we have together where we drive spiritedly through the hill country, stop at a couple local joints for food and libations, and generally just get to know each other better and have a nice day out.

Along the way, I busted out the camera and took some rolling shots of several of our members, and also stopped for some stills. You can check out the whole blog entry for the cruise HERE!

Aubrey Logan @ Austin, TX at Parker Jazz Club AL-26AL-26

Who: Aubrey Logan
When: July 1st, 2021
Where: Austin, TX @ Parker Jazz Club

Years ago when Postmodern Jukebox was starting to gain popularity, I watched a video of Aubrey Logan doing a rendition of "Can't Stop the Feeling" and I just kinda fell in love with her style! Strong voice, lots of scat jazz runs, and throw in a trombone for good measure! I saw that she was going to be performing here in Austin so I reached out and got a press pass to photograph her show...

Color me surprised when I found out she actually lives here in Austin now, and performs regularly! The whole show was fantastic, and I came out of there with some great new songs I hadn't heard before that night in my playlist on my phone. 

Below are some of my favorites from the set, so check them out! And if you are a musician looking for some great live show photos, reach out to me and let's set something up!

And finally, part 3 in the series of me catching up with blog posts. Back at Empire Garage again, but this time it was a YOB Anniversary show! The venue was absolutely FILLED. There were inflatable beach balls and pizzas, an insanely loved setlist, and non-stop fun for a few hours! 

I've already said it before, but these guys are an insane talent, and you'd be hard pressed finding a better act besides seeing the original bands themselves to get your pop-punk and emo fill!

Back for round two, and don't worry - there is still a third post coming up! I got to come back and photograph Y'all About Boy again at Empire Garage, and they sure as hell didn't disappoint. It was another wild crowd, and I even got some killer shots of Dave crowd surfing.

Jesse's Haircuts & Headshots | Fundraising Event HnH-16HnH-16

I've met lots of really cool people in the car enthusiast world. When I first got my Mustang, I saw someone in front of me at Round Rock Donuts with an Instagram tag decal, so I gave them a follow, and eventually that led me to joining my first car club. In that club, I met Jesse. Jesse drives a killer yellow Corvette, and just knows so damn much about cars. He was always answering questions and lending a hand in people needing to install mods or do other repairs.

It was devastating to learn that he found out he got diagnosed with cancer. We held a couple of fundraisers to help him get the money needed for his surgeries, and one of those events was this Haircuts + Headshots that my friend Ace (Reunion Barbershop) and I hosted. People came in for barber services or a headshot (or both!), and paid what they wanted as a donation to Jesse's fundraiser. Lots of great people came in and it was a total success!

Below are some of my favorite images from the day:

Ace's Haircuts & Headshots | Fundraising Event HCHS-86HCHS-86

My friend Ace, the founder and owner of Reunion Barbershop, and one of my best friends since 3rd grade, tested positive for the gene that gives her a 90% chance of developing breast and ovarian cancer.

Not the line I'd typically want to start a blog post off with, but the event that we created to help pay for some of the medical bills and downtime was a big success, and the impact it had really made a difference.

Ace, her shop, and I hosted an event called Haircuts + Headshots in the past for my friend Jesse who was diagnosed with cancer. We let people come in for barber services and headshots and let them decide how much to pay as a way to raise funds. We brought it back when it was time for her to get her preventative surgeries, and found it successful yet again!

Below are some favorites from the photos I took that day.

Chandler & The Bings @ Austin, TX @ Speakeasy CaTB-220CaTB-220

Who: Chandler & The Bings
When: June 11th, 2021
Where: Austin, TX @ Speakeasy

I first listened to Chandler & The Bings at a Circle of Soul Block Party hosted by Circle Brew, and I was blown away by not just their musicianship and talent, but how well they put their own spin on some classic 90's pop songs. It wasn't a grunge and alternative cover band - they did the songs you would hear from Spice Girls, Backstreet Boys, and other big pop groups!

They invited me out to come shoot their set at Speakeasy, and the crowd and energy were freakin' GREAT!

Horn-Ball Tailgaters | UT vs Louisiana HBTG-1HBTG-1

My first tailgating experience was when I first started hanging out with my wife about 5 or 6 years ago. We went with some friends to a random tailgating event, ate some great food, had some drinks, and endured the heat. Since then, I haven't gone to a single tailgating event despite really wanting to.

So imagine my delight when I put in my bid and got chosen to photograph and take video of Horn-Ball Tailgaters' events! I get to be there every home game this season capturing the crowds and antics.

Check out the photos below to see what these events are all about, and come out to the next one!

I put a big emphasis on groups of people at this tailgating event by Horn-Ball Tailgating because the crowd was just AWESOME! Lots of people came out to support the team and have a good time. Plus, it was my first time seeing the Twin Peaks girls bust out the SHOT CHAIR!

I love UT fans. It doesn't matter that the game started at 11am, and that Horn-Ball Tailgaters started their event at 8am. These fans are LOYAL! Despites the early start time, people were in line, getting their Bloody Mary's and sporting all their UT gear to support our boys.

Never let anyone tell you that 10am is not a good time to sit in the Twin Peaks shot chair, either!

Ah, Cameron and Marina! It wasn't too long ago that I was photographing their wedding, and now they've brought a new bundle of joy into the world. They actually saw my photography package at a silent auction for Todos Juntos and placed a bid! It was a wonderful surprise to hear from them, and to hear that they welcomed baby Quentin to their family.

We went for more of a lifestyle shoot at their home, and I am really happy with how it turned out. Check out some of my favorites from our session below, and contact me if you're needing new photos of your family!

It's about that time of year! I've been photographing Melissa and Ed's growing family for nearly a decade, and this time we met up at a nearby park to get some new family photos of them and the kiddos. 

I love the spot they picked out! Lots of greenery, near the water, a fun playground for some candids of the kids. And of course, they are all looking as beautiful as ever.

Lauren | Maternity LD_MAT-15LD_MAT-15

Postponed once due to weather, and then almost again because we had a day forecasted to be full of rain. But baby was almost here! So we said screw it, and did the shoot with a little bit of rain coming down.

I took Lauren and Josh over to the Southwestern University building because there is a path that is covered in trees (pretty AND stops some of the drizzle), and I thought it would be the perfect backdrop for their maternity shoot. I am really happy with how the photos came out despite having to battle a foggy lens (thanks, humidity).

Y'all Out Boy @ Austin, TX @ Empire Garage YOB-98YOB-98

Who: Y'all Out Boy
When: May 28th, 2021
Where: Austin, TX @ Empire Garage

How have I not seen these guys in the last few years?! Y'all Out Boy wakes up your inner early 2000's kid, belting out hit after hit from pop-punk and emo bands like Fall Out Boy, blink-182, Brand New, Hawthorne Heights, and more!

I had just wrapped up photographing a high school graduation in South Austin, and I was looking for something to do since I was near downtown anyway. My friends Matt and Virginia were downtown about to take video for a band. I mostly jokingly asked them if they could get me in, and to my surprise they worked with the band and I was able to snag myself a press pass. 

And man, am I glad they did!

They put on an incredibly high energy show for a packed venue. Great showmanship, great set list, and it was just a lot of fun to have those feelings of nostalgia while I was clicking away taking photos. I will actually have a part 2 to this coming soon, because I went back to another one of their shows a few weeks later and I was able to get more behind the scenes style shots! So stay tuned.

Leslie & Travis | Family Portraits LTHDRJB-2LTHDRJB-2

Kind of a short and sweet post this time, but I got to visit Leslie & Travis and their beautiful family during Mother's Day weekend to take these photos for them. It had been awhile since I saw the gang (last time was during Hannah's (their daughter) wedding), but without skipping a beat I showed up, enjoyed some Knob Creek while I got the lights setup and caught up with them, and captured these images right before sunset. 

I love these guys. They're incredible personable, hospitable, and just fun to be around. I need to make my way down to their neck of the woods more often. Love y'all!

When: April 3rd, 2021
Ceremony & Reception: Shooting Star Ranch @ Liberty Hill, TX

Where do I start?! This was my first time photographing at Shooting Star Ranch in Liberty Hill. The venue is beautiful! Nestled in the countryside, you'll find a ton of big trees and pretty architecture. The string lights, the long driveway, the rustic architecture... everything just fits really well. Definitely in my Top 10 venue list.

And then there is Lori and Ryan! Both were extremely laid back throughout the day and just let me do my thing, which I am extremely grateful for. I was able to get a ton of beautiful shots of them around the venue, focus on details, and I am really happy with how my photos turned out. There was so much love between these two and their families and friends, and it was all smiles throughout the day.

This was a bit of a two-for where we did some headshots, as well as a showcase of Christian's new bike!

I brought my portable backdrop to the parking garage we met at, and I took some headshot style photos to show off his get-up. Afterwards, we went upstairs to the top of the garage and got some very scenic shots of the bike, going around and getting some of the tiny details. 

Then my favorite part came up - the rolling shots. I have a pretty solid route for when I do downtown rollers. Lots of great scenes were captured during our session this time. What do you think?!

This was a short and sweet wedding at Chapel Dulcinea that I shot for this wonderful couple from the Houston area. I met up with Sierra and her wedding party at their AirBnB to capture some photos of them getting ready before we did the drive over to Chapel Dulcinea. 

When we got to the chapel, I got to finally meet Thomas and hang out with him for a little bit while everyone got their finishing touches done. The ceremony was short, sweet, and beautiful (you know those views from the chapel are breathtaking), and we got to take some time afterward to take some photos afterwards on the chapel grounds.

Sound Shed AV Solutions | Company Portraits SSAS_Team-102SSAS_Team-102

My friend Matt does amazing work. I've been friends with him since high school when we were both getting into playing guitar. I had just been hooked up with a BC Rich Warlock that I was pining for, and I had no idea how to really play anything. Matt and a couple mutual friends and I got together a few times to try and jam, whatever that meant when you only know a few chords and pop riffs. 

A lot has changed since high school! Matt went on to form and play in different bands, built out his own recording studio, and basically became an AV god. One of his most recent endeavors was to build out Joe Rogan's podcast studio when Joe moved into Austin. 

From there, things just blew up! And now Matt has assembled a great team to do other builds, and that's why we took these photos. Going for an 80's/90's cheesy portrait aesthetic, I setup a huge backdrop in a warehouse and setup the lighting. Matt and team came prepared with different outfits and props, and we knocked this shoot out. Everyone looked great, and I think we really got that JC Penny feel in these photos.

Be on the look out for more projects being done by Sound Shed AV Solutions! These photos will be featured on their website soon! And check out some of my favorites from the shoot below:

I love clean black cars, and Paul's Challenger is no exception. Purchased as a birthday gift from his wife, we setup this rolling shot session for Paul and his Challenger, and this thing is a beaut!

We did my the shots at my favorite spot - along 360. It's such a beautiful mix of hill country and roads. You get some shots with the bridge, some of 2222 while crossing over it, some cool spots with big waving American flags in the background, carved out rock, and more.

Several weeks ago, I got together with my car group, Lone Star Squad. We went right into the middle of downtown Austin to the top level of a parking garage and had ourselves a photo shoot. The shots below are the ones I took, but we had a couple photographers there.

It was just fun getting to hang out with the guys and gals that make up this great group. Can you guess how much horsepower is in the photo above? I'll give you a hint... it's over 4,000 HP!

Big hair. Loud guitar. Leather pants. Amps turned to 11. What wasn't awesome about the 80's hair metal scene? Hair Metal Giants is here to keep that vibe alive. They are a tribute band to all the greats of the 80's from Def Leppard to Motley Crue hailing from Austin, TX and they bring the goods!

Since I upgraded to the new Nikon Z6ii, I wanted to put it to the test so I reached out to some local bands to see who was playing in the near future. These guys hit me up and let me know about this show they had, and I was stoked to be invited.

I really loved how the camera performed, and the show itself was just a ton of fun to watch and experience. Really great show, guys! Can't wait to see y'all again in the future. Check out my favorites below!:

Jessica | Family Portraits JC_FP-12JC_FP-12

Jessica & Isiah
Memorial Park @ Round Rock, TX

This was such a sweet shoot to do because it has been so long since I've seen my friend Jessica! I was always really close friends with her, having first met her back in middle school. The last time I saw her, her son was still a baby!

So we met up at Memorial Park, and it was pretty cloudy and foggy that day. Luckily the fog wasn't too bad, but the ambient light was absolute perfection. I carried around a single speedlight with my big ol' 48" umbrella, and captured these lovely shots from different spots around the park.

It was just so nice to be able to catch up and see her son growing up - it's also so great to have rekindled our friendship! Check out some of my favorite shots from our session below, and don't forget to reach out to me if you need some updated family photos yourself!

Melissa, Ed, and Family
Central Park @ Austin, TX

Merry Christmas, y'all! I met up with Melissa and Ed and their beautiful family to capture some photos for the holidays at Central Park in downtown Austin. They came prepared with Santa hats and (as always) looking their best.

It was nice to have a little normalcy to start wrapping up 2020. Seeing familiar friends, getting to catch up between shots, walking around and getting photos of their kids playing, and doing what I love to do...couldn't ask for more!

Check out some of my favorites from the shoot below, and have a happy and safe holiday out there!

Country-ish Showcase @ Austin, TX at Sahara Lounge CISH-105CISH-105

Who: Country(ish) Showcase ft. Texas Tilly, Megan Lacy, Stac3y Bell, and Annie Davis
When: December 9th, 2020
Where: Austin, TX @ Sahara Lounge

One of the major reasons for my rebranding to The Vinyl Lens was because I wanted to do more music and concert photography. I had a lot of plans for 2020 before COVID-19 hit. So many great shows were rolling through Austin, and I wanted to photograph all of them! But shutdowns and all had different plans, so it has now been several months since I've gotten to photograph a live show.

Then I got a new camera body, and some small venues were opening up for smaller, socially distanced crowds. So I put some feelers out there to see if any local bands needed some photos so I could swing by and test out the new gear, and Stac3y Bell came to my rescue.

She told me about a showcase she was hosting at Sahara Lounge that could use some photography, and I jumped on it. So glad I did! Not only am I really happy with how this camera performs in such low light conditions, but each artist that performed was great. Just really chilled, heartfelt lyrics in this dark dive bar - it was nice. Plus, without a big crowd and all, I was able to hone in and take my time getting some of these shots.

Jay | Porsche 911 Turbo S Rollers JH911TS-27JH911TS-27

Oo-freakin-wee! I recently upgraded my camera body, so I've been doing some test shoots to make sure I know how to do everything I need to do. I posted up on one of the local car groups on Facebook I am in and invited anyone with an interesting car to comment for a free rolling shot session.

Well, lucky me, someone with my dream car responded. I set up a quick shoot with Jay, the owner of this gorgeous Porsche 911 Turbo S Cabriolet, and we took these awesome rollers over in Round Rock. This car is just insanely beautiful. I do see this model around town sometimes while cruising, but it's something else when you finally get to take some up close and personal photos of it.

Rocio | Shelby Portraits RS-Solo-14RS-Solo-14

Portraits with Shelby
Downtown Austin

I originally met Rocio because she was looking for a wedding photographer, but before the big day she wanted to do a portrait shoot of just her and a car. So I reached out to my car group, Lone Star Squad, to see if anyone from there would be willing to let us use their car. My buddy David pulled through, so all three of us got together at an parking garage smack dab in the middle of downtown and we took these shots as the sun was setting.

This was a really fun shoot! Rocio was a natural model, and we got so many great shots of her. Check out some of my favorites below, and reach out to me if you'd like to do a shoot like this, too!:

Debbi & Michael | Wedding DMT_Wedding-541DMT_Wedding-541

Debbi & Michael
When: November 7th, 2020
Ceremony & Reception: Twisted Ranch @ Bertram, TX

This wedding is one where I really got to showcase how much more comfortable I've been getting doing single light portraits at sunset and dusk. It all kind of just came together, and I am glad we were at Twisted Ranch for it. It doesn't get a whole lot more scenic than this place!

I met Michael and Debbi through a referral from Holly (my go to second shooter for weddings), and I felt so lucky to be a part of their wedding. We spent most of the day at Twisted Ranch to capture everything from them getting ready to their last dance. There was just so much to take photos of! Lots of cool scenery and things to do... as much fun as I was having as the photographer, I know they and their guests were having even more of a blast.

Now I just gotta find some shin guards so I can join these two in some indoor soccer.

Edge Addicts | Track Racing EA-282EA-282

There is a great group of folks over at Edge Addicts who hold track days at Circuit of the Americas. People can sign up for instruction and sessions to take their cars onto the track and put their cars to the task of besting their own times at COTA.

I got to take my camera to one of these events and photograph a few people from my car group (and a bunch of others who were on the track). I had a blast seeing some of my favorite makes and models rip around the corners and make a bunch of engine noises... oh, and I suppose I liked capturing photos of it all, too!

Whimsical Sekrits - Austin, TX @ Sekrit Theater WS-124WS-124

Who: Whimsical Sekrits
When: November 15th, 2020
Where: Austin, TX @ Sekrit Theater

Man! It has been awhile since I've gotten to photograph performance art, and it felt great! With the shutdowns and all, most shows have been canceled. However, this Whimsical Sekrits show did something awesome - they took the show online and streamed it via Twitch! So they still got a nice online crowd to watch, and I got to be there to photograph it in person.

This was also my first time to the Sekrit Theater. I had heard about it many times, but never got to see it in person. It's kind of hard to explain... it's basically someone's big backyard, and there's just a lot of stuff back there. A non-running school bus, a big projector screen, a gazebo, a green house, and a bunch more. It's kind of a photographer's dream. It's incredibly charming and almost seems magical in an Alice in Wonderland type of way.

The production itself was a lot of fun, too. It had a little bit of everything from aerial performers, pole dancing, to fire spinning. If you are familiar with my work, you know I love capturing people playing with fire.

Check out some of my favorites from the show below! And if you know someone in the performance arts who needs a photographer for a show, send them this post!

When: October 10th, 2020
Ceremony & Reception: Private Residence

This was my second wedding where I got to shoot alongside Everett. This pandemic has moved a lot of weddings into backyards and smaller venues, which I've actually been enjoying getting to photograph! It makes for a more intimate occasion.

My duty was to hang out with Michael and his groomsmen for most of the afternoon. It was nice getting to geek out about Dungeons & Dragons with someone for awhile! On top of that, they had a really wonderful wedding with close family, and everything turned out beautiful.

Little River Test N Tune | Drag Races LRD-67LRD-67

I finally took my camera over to Little River Dragway to take some photos of the races. Nearly every weekend, they have a Test N Tune event, so you see pretty much every kind of thing with four wheels seeing what kind of numbers they can put down. Not many better ways to spend a Friday night!

Below you'll see some of my favorites from the night. It is really tough to take photos this time of year because it gets dark so early. It really puts your camera gear to the test!

Ceremony & Reception: The Milestone @ Georgetown, TX

I finally got to second shoot for a wedding photographer that I've been following for awhile, Mr. Everett Christopher at Everett Christopher Photography. The guy is a lighting and Photoshop wiz, and I really wanted to see how he does his weddings.

So for the first time, I got invited to second shoot with him at Breanna and Kevin's wedding! The couple were so great. Their friends and family and themselves were just so happy and lively and ready to party and celebrate. I learned a lot from Everett during the shoot, and really just had a great time in general getting to be a part of this day.

I feel so incredibly lucky when my clients (who I consider friends right away) keep me in mind for future shoots. It feels rewarding! And in instances like this, where I am doing a second maternity session, I get to see a family grow and bond more and more over time.

I've got to be there for Lala and Eddie's first maternity shoot, and an engagement session, and wedding, multiple family photos, and now I got to help them spread the word that they were expecting another addition to the family!

Absolutely love these two (well, four now) and can't wait to keep seeing their family through the years. Congratulations on your plus one!

Jack | Lime Creek Road Rollers JH_Rollers-13JH_Rollers-13

Not every day I throw my rig onto the back of my car and get those sweet rolling shots from the front and center. Jack and I went out with his GT350 that's been decked out to make it even more of a beast on the track and took these rolling shots along Lime Creek Road. It was the perfect time of day, and everything came together really nicely.

Check out some of my favorites from our shoot, and let me know if you'd like rollers of YOUR cool car!

Mallory & Will | Wedding MWM_Wedding-124MWM_Wedding-124

Mallory & Will
When: November 14th, 2020
Ceremony & Reception: Private Residence

I've mentioned before how many great people I meet through car culture, and one of those people was Will and his (now) wife Mallory. They kept this light with a smaller audience, but no less beautiful in a backyard near Lago Vista.

You could tell how insanely happy they were to finally be tying the knot! And during some of our formal photos of just the two of them, we got to swing around front for photos with their cars.

Check out some of my favorites from the day below, and let me know if you need a wedding photographer for your upcoming wedding!:
