Modern Hotel Van Zandt Wedding // Rachel & Ben

Rachel and Ben's wedding at Hotel Van Zandt in downtown Austin was one of my favorite weddings from last year! Everything from the beautiful purple sari's and henna tattoos to the colorful florals designed by Flora & Fauna made the wedding so beautiful and unique. 

My favorite part of the day was Rachel & Ben's first look. I originally planned to have it in the hotel lobby, which is stunning, but I quickly changed my plans when I stepped foot in Rachel & Ben's hotel suite. The light-filled modern suite was the perfect private backdrop for their first look. During their first look I asked them if they would like to practice their first dance and without hesitation, Ben put on their song and they danced like no one was watching. I'm so glad we chose to do the first look in their hotel suite because it ended up being so romantic and intimate.


Austin, TX Engagement Session // In-Home Lifestyle Session // Emilie & Ian

This authentic in-home session with Emilie and Ian gave me life! I knew this engagement session would be special when Emilie told me that she wanted to incorporate their love for cooking into their photos. Emilie and Ian spent the evening making homemade pizza, sipping on wine, dancing in their dining room, and snuggling with their pups while I captured all of the sweet moments. 


Austin, TX Maternity Session // Laguna Gloria // Callie & Ian

I've known this sweet couple since I met them through a mutual friend back in 2014!  Since then I've been lucky enough to shoot their engagement, wedding, maternity, and newborn photos. I'm so grateful that they chose me to capture some of their most precious moments! The pregnancy glow is real ya'll, look at this beautiful mother glowing with joy!


Santa Barbara Couples Session // Butterfly Beach // Shay & Andrew

When I was in Santa Barbara last March I was lucky enough to shoot with this adorable couple at Butterfly Beach! Andrew and Shay got engaged at Butterfly Beach so it was the perfect location for their short & sweet couples session! We only shot for an hour, but this session gave me a little taste of what it must be like to be a photographer in California. I'm pretty jealous of the photographers who get to shoot in such a beautiful state on a daily basis!
