Last night was the first time I photographed a wedding at the Star Hill Ranch… I gotta say, it is was one of my favorite wedding venues in Austin. There are so many interesting backdrops to photograph. The venue is also very flexible to fit any size wedding with the option to choose between two different chapels. They also have accommodations for up to 500 guest, Amazing place…
Leticia and Josh got married on August 30th, 2009. The wedding could not have turned out more perfect. The weather was very pleasant considering it was over 100 degrees just two weeks earlier. They choose to get married in the smaller chapel which had much more character than the larger one so there was not quite enough space for everyone to fit. The wedding went on without a hitch and after they exited, they rang the chapel bell to Que the Mariachi Band to begin playing for the guest while I took the Bride and Groom around for some portraits. There were so many interesting locations, I almost wanted to keep shooting for another hour, but the party continued inside. After dinner everyone really enjoyed the candy bar provided by the Bride and Groom and then when it came time to cut the cake, all the Brides Maids went around to cut the cakes which had been placed on every table. Very clever idea… the rest of the evening was nice and relaxing. Close friends and family stayed around for some dancing celebrating. I wish the best to Leticia and Josh. Congratulations!

I LOVE this picture! He just has that look that makes the image perfect.
This one was shot with the 100mm Macro lens. I placed the Rings on the mirror that was underneath the center pieces. Christmas lights were hanging all round the reception hall so I used them as a backdrop in the reflection. I would have liked to get more DOF but I was already at 3200iso and 1/60th shutter to get as much ambient as possible so I could not lower the aperture.
