Just like with any job that there ever was, some days are easier than others. Some days I see a daunting to do list of taxes to pay, spreadsheets to update, & e-mails to send. Running a photography business is so much more than meets the eye and it’s difficult to accurately depict how chaotic and inconsistent it can be. It truly is… a labor of love. With those overwhelming down days comes highs that outweigh any low. Days like Lauren & Tom’s are the highs of my job, hands down. Lauren has been following me since the days that I was ‘Sweet Caroline Photo’. While that is at least 5 years, I shot her good friend’s wedding in 2010 so I’ll bet it’s been closer to 7. I am well aware that it is terribly sappy of me to say that that fact makes me a bit weepy. She said that my photos were a huge part of the reason that she had a wedding in the first place, to be able to remember a time they could bring their family & friends together to celebrate. Lauren & I chose her wedding date, hoping to not end up with a 100 degree day and where they should have their engagement photos taken. (Tulum, Mexico!) I grow attached to my clients because I make bonds that aren’t easy to forget and these two are no exception. They hired my favorite team of vendors to create a magical ambiance with nothing but good vibes. Thank you Lauren & Tom, Lonie & Josh, and Tenley & Dustin for keeping me in the family. (and of course) Pearl Events, Texas pro Djs, bouquets of Austin, & Polka dots cupcakes.

When I rolled up to Naseem & Ricky’s sangeet the day before the wedding, I was greeted with the biggest of hugs from Ricky’s mother, Noreen. Five years, four months, & 2 days prior I photographed Ricky’s sister’s wedding in Puerto Rico and to this day, they treat me like a member of the family. They held their wedding at Naseem’s family ranch in Bastrop and hosted a sangeet at my favorite Austin Indian restaurant g’raj mahal. The wedding incorporated Persian traditions including a sofreh aghd and the cake knife dance. It was a truly beautiful reception just far enough out in the country to not receive cell service. There might not be anymore Nainani sibling weddings to shoot anymore but I know that this family hasn’t seen the last of me ;)

I love a good cross country love story. Layla & Aaron, both being from Los Angeles, didn’t mean until they were both living in Manhattan through mutual friends. After a few visits to Austin, they not only decided to have their wedding here, they are both happy to call it their home. Their September wedding was full of people from all over the country and incorporated Filipino wedding traditions. Layla & Aaron know how to throw a good party, especially by hiring the dream team of Austin wedding vendors including Pearl Events, Adam Grumbo, The Drywater Band, & Bouquets of Austin. They ended the night with party (school) buses to take everyone back to town. I need to grab a beer and catch up with these nomads stat.

Adrian & Matt gave me the opportunity to be among the first photographers to photograph a wedding at Austin‘s brand new Hotel Van Zandt located off Rainey street. They checked the venue out for the first time in hard hats while it was still being built! Adrian had a busy getting room with not only 14 bridesmaids but also her sweet beagle dog, Lola. I love being a part of all the activity, it means there is always something to photograph. The ceremony was held at one of my favorite Austin churches, Central Christian. The reception had the absolute dream team of Austin vendors to create an amazing party for 290 people from all over the U.S. Pearl Events, Polka Dot macaroons, Simon Lee cakes, The Pictures band, & ILC video made the wedding complete. After two months shooting weddings outside of Texas it was so nice to be greeted back into the city with such an amazing wedding on every level.
