It’s almost spring so I feel myself trying to remember what warmer weather is like through the weddings I’ve photographed. Susan & Kyle’s wedding was a perfect way to bring in 2019. My friend Bradford and I got to hang out with them for a few days at the Dreams & Secrets Playa Mujeres resorts. The resort was a beautiful spot to get married with the ceremony right on the beach. The reception was held right from their suite balcony where they were able to have fireworks for their first dance. After an amazing dance party, Bradford and I joined the wedding group for tequila at the resort club were we reminisced on such a beautiful day. :)

I was lucky enough to click with Laura the minute I spoke to her on the phone about her wedding day. We went to Zilker Park and Lake Austin for their engagement session where Lindsay took us out on their boat. A perfect evening watching the sunset over the 360 bridge finished off by an amazing dinner. So by the time I showed up in Hawaii to meet up with them at their rehearsal dinner, they felt like good friends. In true Hawaii style it was a beautiful day at the Mauna Kea beach hotel where the ceremony and reception were held outside. Despite the fire dancers briefly catching the DJ’s stage on fire, they put on an amazing show before the party got started. After the reception exit I hung out with the bridal party until the wee hours of the morning getting to know the couple and their group of friends. Since then we’ve been able to connect in their current city of Austin as well as their former city of Denver. We’re due to catch up again asap. :)

I absolutely love reconnecting with former clients at weddings, it is such an honor to be thought of again years after their friend or family’s wedding day. In this case, I photographed Camillia & Will’s wedding in Puerto Rico back in 2011 as well as her brother’s wedding in Austin in 2016. On their wedding date last June, I couldn’t help but post one of my favorite photos (the last) and write about how I felt. “Putting in words how I feel tonight has been a difficult undertaking. Appreciative, proud, grateful are a few words I can think of but they still don’t do my feelings justice. There is so much more to the way my clients can make me feel after photographing them. I’ve always thought of myself as a person that is weak in empathy, (in true honesty), but my clients evoke feelings in me I didn’t know I had the ability to feel… and like finding a muscle you didn’t know you had, you work it out to become stronger. Then all of a sudden, it’s a regular muscle in use. I photographed Sandra’s cousin’s wedding almost 7 years ago and today I hung out with their family again like it was yesterday. That is special. ♥️ ” Looking back on the photos 10 months later makes me feel so special all over again.

One of my favorite parts of my job is getting to know my clients. I work with a huge variety of clientele from doctors to fellow photographers which gives me so many opportunities to learn new things. These two Austinites now live in San Diego working on their residency and fell in love with Yosemite on a recent trip and wanted to have their engagement session there. I had never been and while enticed by the idea upon the initial suggestion, I put my bar too low for the location. HOLY MOLY this place was breathtakingly beautiful. Like one of those spots you just can’t take a bad photo at; add the adorable Thao & Doug to the mix and I felt like the universe was handing me gold. I think my next stop should be Yellowstone, who wants to be photographed there? :)
