Bader & Williamson

Most of all, I remember... This couple! How fun it was to photograph two people so deeply in love and so passionate about taking photographs and photography. Bridget and Andrew started off their cocktail hour on the roof of Brazos Hall, overlooking downtown Austin. They had clean modern furniture paired with gorgeous florals, some of Bridget's studio B&W bridal portraits,  family wedding photos and their favorite personal photos displayed. After their romantic last dance alone, they dashed through the sparklers, ending with a kiss, as their dearest friends and family looked on.

Hall & Coudron

Most of all, I remember...Jon proposed to me in Lake Como, Italy! He took me to Northern Italy because my family is from there. We started in Milan, Italy, and our plan was to work our way further north to Switzerland. But just four days into our trip we were in Lake Como, Italy, and Jon had reserved a private antique wooden boat for us to take around the Lake.  We had a personal driver who only spoke Italian and a wonderful spread of cheeses, salami and Prosecco.  The driver took us in front of the most amazing lush estate I have ever seen called "Villa Balbianello." It is absolutely gorgeous.

Jon knew that was where he should propose so he had the driver take us around the lake for a few more laps and then we came back to this beautiful Villa where he proposed on one knee! Later that evening he had a back-up plan in place just in case "Plan A" didn't work out. So we had a private dinner, poolside, looking at the hillside of Lake Como with our very own saxophonist.  I was on Cloud 9; he really made me feel like a Gem!

Rachel & Sam

Most of all, I remember... We don't always have the chance to create engagement portraits, but even with Sam and Rachel's busy schedules--including Rachel training for and completing The 2017 Boston Marathon (!)--we got to spend some time together making these.  It was an incredible Austin evening and we were able to incorporate both their love for downtown Austin and LadyBird Lake. While we made sure to get those classic portraits with Rachel and Sam looking at the camera,  it was the moments that Rachel and Sam were after, and the moments between them that got me as well. I'm sharing a few of my favorites below. Are you considering an engagement session? Why or why not?
