Andrea + Josh | Engagement Session at Bull Creek District Park | Austin Wedding Photographer

I am head-over-heels in LOVE with this engagement session at Bull Creek. Andrea and Josh were easy to work with, super nice and GREAT models for this beautiful setting.

Every now and then I’ll do a shoot that really inspires me, and changes the way I think about photography. This was one of those times, and it’s got me thinking of all kinds of new things that I want to try, and new ways that I want to plan my photoshoots.

These guys will be getting married on my birthday! March 17th, 2018. I absolutely adored working with them (so nice, easy-going, and SO PHOTOGENIC!), so I’m really excited for their wedding!

1st Annual Mini Sessions | 2017 | Mayfield Park | Austin Wedding Photographer

MINI SESSIONS were a hit this past Saturday, September 23rd!

1st Annual Mini Sessions at Mayfield Park – Austin, Texas – September 2017

Last weekend I held my first annual mini session event at Mayfield Park. This was a single day event, and clients (both new, and returning!) were able to choose a time slot and book a 20 minute session. Each client received 10 images in an online gallery (with free download and printing rights included!), and because there was a limit of 10 photos I tried to make sure that everybody got a good variety of images incase they wanted to do something like this.

It turns out that nobody really wants to do their family portraits in the middle of the day, while the lighting is harsh and the sun is hot (duh), but my morning and afternoon/evening sessions were completely booked up! (plus ONE daring middle-of-the-day couple haha).

Missed This Year’s Mini Sessions?

I have big plans for NEXT YEAR’S mini sessions!

2018’s mini sessions will be Christmas Card sessions (non-themed), and will happen sometime in late November, after Thanksgiving. I will announce the date for these on my Facebook Page sometime in the summer, and then in early fall I will create a Facebook event with details/location/available times and officially open up booking.

This time, there will be morning and evening sessions ONLY, but there will be WAY MORE OF THEM!!

Follow me on Facebook so that you don’t miss the announcement! 🙂

Mini sessions are great for a quick and easy update of your family portraits, or for kids that don’t have the best attention spans. But keep in mind that these types of sessions are very limited in many ways, and not able to be as in-depth as a full portrait session.

Austin Family Photography

While I specialize in wedding photography, I do offer portrait sessions with families and children, high school/college seniors, etc. A typical portrait session takes about 45 minutes to 1 hour, and produces roughly 50 final images so that you have plenty to choose from to display in your home, in an album, or however you decide to use them!

For more information and pricing for portrait sessions, you can see my portraiture pricing here, and feel free to contact me about any questions, or if you are interested in something that you don’t see listed!

Jennifer + John | Engagement Session in the San Marcos Square | Austin Wedding Photographer

This was actually part-2 of Jennifer + John’s engagement photo session, but these photos taken in the Downtown San Marcos Square are what I’m most itching to share, so the other part will have to wait a little longer!

Something I’ve been thinking a lot about lately are new ways to get my clients moving, relaxed, and showing off their unique relationships. These guys made it too easy!

I loved getting to play with the cool shadows from the sun setting through the buildings and the trees, and I’m so in love with the overall emotion and feel of this engagement session! They absolutely rocked it.

I can’t stress enough how beneficial it is to have an engagement session done before the big day. I’ve personally seen time and time again how much better the wedding photos can be when we’ve warmed up to each other a little before hand, and had a chance to “practice.”

Misty + Roy | Engagement Photos | Zilker Botanical Gardens | Mayfield Park | Austin Wedding Photographer

I met with Misty + Roy for this beautiful evening engagement session at the Zilker Botanical Garden and Mayfield Park in Austin, Tx.

Engagement Photos at Zilker Botanical Garden – Austin, TX

We started our photoshoot at the Botanical Garden, and it had so many amazing spots! I kept trying to make our way to the pretty little bridge on the other side of the park, but I had so many photos ideas on the way to it that we wound up running out of time (the gates close at 6) and had to head over to our second location. Keep scrolling to find our shots at Mayfield Park, too!

After the Botanical Gardens closed for the night, we headed over to our second planned location: Mayfield Park!

I love Mayfield Park, because it’s one of the first places that I shot at when I first started doing photography professionally. I love many pretty backdrops there are in such a concentrated area, especially when it’s hot and we don’t want to have to do t00 much walking.

Last evening’s engagement session was one of my favorites yet! For starters, I’ve been dying to do a shoot at Landa Park, in New Braunfels, secondly because I got to really take my new 50mm F1.8 for a spin (Hello Nifty Fifty!), and lastly because I love this couple!!  These two will be tying the knot this October, and I absolutely cannot wait to be there to capture it all.

Reyna + Ryan | Mueller Lake Park Engagement Photos | Austin Wedding Photographer

by Harper Jones

Meet Ryan and Reyna.  They’re getting married in just two days, and I CAN. NOT. WAIT. So why did we do their engagement photos so close to their actual wedding day?  Well, they don’t exactly live here.  So we had to schedule them for when they would be in town for the wedding!

Something I should point out is that these were done on a very overcast day! I ALWAYS have clients on cloudy days texting/emailing me before their session’s worrying that the cloudiness will make for bad photos… and I always reassure everyone that they’re photos will come out great whether or not the sun is out!!

We met up at Mueller’s Lake Park in east Austin, Texas for this shoot.

Yesterday’s engagement sessions was awesome! We hopped around to different spots in Austin, including the “I Love You So Much” wall and South Congress, the “Greetings From Austin” wall on 1st street, on and under the south Lamar pedestrian bridge (which I had never stopped at before.. and it was so beautiful!), and ended with some backlit bluebonnet shots at a great little patch I spotted next to Lady Bird Lake, near Austin High School.  I love so many of the photos we captured, and I’m especially happy about all of the variety we got from using multiple locations!

Congratulations on your engagement guys!
