To say that I am excited about posting this next session would be an understatement. Shiri is my BEAUTIFUL little sister and Mark her soon-to-be husband! They both live (and will marry) in Los Angeles, but made a recent visit here to Austin to have their pictures taken by yours truly. This means the world to me since I’ll be too busy playing bridesmaid on her special day and can’t be her photographer. My dear friend, Francis Joseph, will have the honor of shooting their wedding and was able to tag along on our session and busted out the analog film camera – I’ve seen a few frames of what he came up with and looking forward to more :)

One of the most rewarding aspects of my job is finding out that clients and friends like my work so much that they refer others to me. I have been fortunate enough that every single one of my clients to date has been through word-of-mouth which is a huge honor. Jeanine and Scott were referred to me by a dear friend (and customer) and we recently did a Downtown-Austin engagement portrait session and had a blast! I really love having the opportunity to do engagement sessions prior to weddings. Not only do we get to capture fun moments on film (…er…memory card), but we get to spend some time getting to know each other and getting couples used to being in front of the camera prior to your big day which makes wedding pictures a lot more fun and easy! Anyway – I know Jeanine is waiting on the edge of her seat for these pictures, so enough of the small talk – and on to the fun :)

I am SO excited to share this next session.

Parisa and Bryan live in San Francisco, but met while living here, in Austin. They’re getting married here, next month, and I have the fortune to capture their special day.

Last week we galavanted around Austin and had a blast taking pictures. It was touch and go for a while as the day started off pretty nasty and rainy, but we held on as there was really no option to reschedule and I’m so happy that we did as everything ended up PERFECT. Our evening included an adventure at the University of Texas campus which included a police officer inviting us up to the top of the UT Tower at sunset. I hope I don’t speak for myself when I say we had a great time. Out session was so much fun that I’m really looking forward to the wedding :)
