Bahamas

As with many of our work trips we have a hard time bringing out the big camera for any other times other than official shooting/work times and this trip was no exception. This doesn’t mean we don’t want to take photos of our surroundings, we are simply saving our backs and our mental energy for the intense shooting hours that we have ahead of us. We arrived in Nassau, Bahamas on Tuesday after a early morning flight from Austin. We had two full days of opportunity to explore the island and you know what we did? What most other tourists do. Normally, this would disappoint me as we barely left the Atlantis resort, where the wedding was, but we are in the middle of wedding season damnit and for once in my life I just didn’t mind sitting on my butt and drinking a pina colada out of a coconut. The Atlantis resort feels like Vegas in many ways, we walked what felt like miles to get to the other side of the resort, there is a large casino & an endless supply of alcohol. The long walk was far from boring though as most of it passes by a few beaches, waterslides, more pools than I can count, & what felt like a never ending aquarium. The directionally challenged, such as myself, may find themselves getting hopelessly lost at night but with the nonstop amusement and beauty of the Bahamas it’s difficult to get frustrated along the way. I will be back in November for a wedding vendor conference and have intentions of exploring the other islands and the different side of the Bahamas.

I still managed to take plenty of photos with my iphone (most of the photos below) and snapped a few for Charlene & Jeff with the 5d MarkIII (the night photos). I am very excited that on my next trip in one week, to Panama, I will be trying out my new Fuji XT-1 with 18-55mm lens. I am very hopeful that this will be my new travel camera instead of my phone!

Austin Engagement | Shera + Raimy

As a photographer it is always exciting to shoot somewhere new! Although I have lived in the great city of Austin for over 5 years and lived within 2 miles of the Hotel St Cecilia I had never had the opportunity to photograph an engagement session there. Raimy contacted me 2 months before he had planned to propose to Shera ensuring that I would be available during their stay at the hotel and just a day after he proposed to her in that very same spot. How special it is that I got to capture them in a spot that will always hold such fond memories to them.

Houston Wedding | Kristie + Adam

From the beginning Kristie & Adam  told me that they wanted to throw the best party their guest have ever attended! They certainly followed through with those plans due in part to the amazing band they hired, The Spazmatics. The wedding ceremony was held at one of the most beautiful Houston churches, St. Anne Catholic Church. It rained a little bit on their wedding day but that didn’t stop us from getting some beautiful night portraits just outside The Crystal Ballroom at The Rice Hotel in downtown Houston. After a wonderful dinner and some touching speeches, they turned up the volume and danced the night away!

Barton Creek Resort Wedding | Megan + Matt

Megan and Matt were an incredibly fun couple to work with and brought their A game when it came to throwing an awesome shindig for their wedding. Their ceremony was in Atrium at Barton Creek Resort with a beautiful ballroom reception to follow. Blind Date provided the music and kept the party rocking and the dance floor busy well into the night. It was a lovely evening with plenty of great moments that I am excited to share with you all. Special thanks as well to Becky Brock of Brock & Co Events for putting it all together and making it happen.
