I always encourage bridal photos if it is in your budget because while I will always do my best to take as many solo photos of the bride in her dress as I can during a wedding, it can never be as detailed and as many as a photo session dedicated to the bride. I have heard some brides say "oh I don't need any photos of me alone" -- I disagree! You only wear this dress once ladies! Show it off!
Michele and Brian got married in February and it was a very foggy day in the hill country. If you are familiar with the weather out here sometimes we get this fog so thick I cant even see out of my windows. This day was like that. Michele told me after she got her photos back that she was so scared about how they were going to turn out because of the weather that day and that she LOVES her photos and that I exceeded all their expectations. It is my job to be able to shoot in any condition and weddings are rain or shine... I always do my best! :)
Chapel Dulcinea is one of my favorite small venues out here in the Texas Hill Country. Its in Driftwood, TX right outside of Austin. If you are having your wedding at Chapel Dulcinea please contact me! Go HERE to see Michele and Brian's Engagement session at Butler Park in Austin.
This little girl looked so pretty in her tutu, but didn't like cake! Its so funny how some like cake and some don't. hehe
Its June right now but honestly if you are thinking of family photos, now is the time to plan them for this fall! Fall is family photo season. I took these family photos last fall.. I start to offer 30 minute sessions in September - December.. this family had their session in the morning and they went to have breakfast afterwards.. quick and painless. :)
I was contacted by Michele to photograph her and fiance's wedding and engagement session. They are a couple from Austin and were having their wedding at Chapel Dulcinea, in Driftwood, right outside of Austin in February. I called her back immediately because 1 LOVE the small weddings at Chapel Dulcinea. It might be my favorite venue in the Austin area for small weddings and elopements. They only had a little over 2 months to do the engagement photos and everyone has a full schedule during December, plus we had a lot of rainy days, so we took the photos as soon as we could. It ended up being a pretty cold and overcast day just a couple days after Christmas, but since it was winter in the hill country we just went with it. At least it wasn't raining! The location is Butler Park right outside of Austin, TX ... with a great city skyline backdrop.
