Whitney & Justin’s Engagements | Austin, TX

Whitney and Justin are so freaking cute, it makes me hurt. For their engagements, Whitney wanted to take them at the library on her campus. When I was literally pulling up around the corner, she called me and sounded like something terrible had happened. I was instantly concerned and fearing awful things, when two seconds later she told me that the library closed early. Phew! With no real plan for the first half of our session, we hit up a close-by parking garage and then spent some time canoodling at Spider House.

About halfway through our session, we headed to the awesome set-up that Lindy Floral had created. Color me blown away! As soon as I saw the green trees mixed with the colorful red and pink flowers and streamers, I was overwhelmed with inspiration. And then Justin and Whitney took their cutie selves in front of the wonderful decorations and my mind was blown.

This was definitely the kind of session where, if the sun hadn’t set, I could have kept taking pictures forever. I was so in love with our surroundings, the way Justin and Whitney were interacting with each other, everything. I can not wait for their wedding next month where I’m sure my mind will explode some more.

Summer Time Backyard Birthday Party: Harper is 2!

Sunday was a big, wonderful, special day, awesome day- Mother’s Day AND Leah’s daughter, Harper turned two! In celebration, Leah and Taylor threw a little backyard shin-dig for all their friends and family. We decided to set up a little make-shift photobooth for the occasion and filled it with goofy props (I can’t think of anything more hilarious than babies wearing mustaches and giant glasses…) and a hand made banner I whipped together Friday night. Harper is such a lucky kid to have so many people gather in celebration of her life.:)

A pretty bouquet brightens my day

There’s a website that I can’t get enough of called Pinterest. Basically, you sign up for an account and then you can make online bulletin boards of endless inspiration from around the internet. I look at least once a day to feel inspired, get ideas, or just browse the awesomeness. I’ve always known that I like flowers but it wasn’t until I started with pinterest that I realized how much. I literally found myself wanting to “pin” every single picture of a pretty flower, just to stare at. Then I started daydreaming about having the type of home that has a fresh floral arrangement on the table every week. Simply stated, LOVE flowers.

I’m super lucky to have such talented friends and even luckier when my talented friends cross over in to the wedding community. I work with Lindy Floral often and recommend her to all of my brides. I’ve seen her do so many different sorts of things and rock all of them. I jump at the chance of surrounding myself with her work! So last weekend when she asked if I could quickly snap a few shots of one of her newest bouquet creations, how could I resist?!

I’m in love with this look and haven’t seen it used at all on wedding days, something that I hope will change. Exposed stems? Adore. Also, pitchers (the ones with the veins) are my new favorite flower. Let’s all just breathe in how pretty flowers can be.

Lauren’s Bridals at Mayfield Park | Austin, TX

Lauren got married on Sunday, amidst abnormally awesome weather and lovely friends and family. But before I can share those awesome, let’s take a look at her bridals!

We met at Mayfield Park for some fun in the sun and I was excited the second Lauren stepped out of the car. Her hair! I love me some red hair. Also, her dress was beautiful and also the flowers rocked and.. also, also, also. We took these pictures just a few weeks ago and it was actually the first time that I met Lauren. I had a great evening taking pictures and learning more about her and her soon-to-be husband, Lee.

You guys are seriously rocking the bridals lately. This one is lovely, and my favorites are the last one and the one toward the middle, which is also symmetrical, in front of the white structure. She looks so calm and lovely in them both. I LOVE THEM. For real.
