Despite Adrienne & Drew hosting their wedding at their family’s private ranch, I have still had the opportunity to photograph here before! Last year I took wedding photos for Adrienne’s cousin and was grateful to be able to catch up with Megan & Ryan at this wedding. (read more about that fun experience here!) There is something so humbling about being able to recognize family members and remember who had the best dance moves;)There is no shortage of them in this family! The ceremony was the kind of ceremony every photographer dreams of photographing, love, tears, smiles, beautiful people,  & of course beautiful light. The dance floor was always full but Eric made sure to snag the bride & groom to take advantage of being in the middle of nowhere by capturing a long exposure with the stars. My biggest take back from this wedding though will have to the sweet song that Drew sang to Adrienne  during the reception, the kind of music that warms your heart and reminds you what love is all about.

I didn’t get to meet Claire & Adam until just a couple days before the wedding because they were having a destination wedding but I felt the love immediately upon meeting them between us and between them. They’re both extremely charismatic and charming and it is no wonder that so many of their friends and family made the treck down to Austin from all over the country. Claire’s aunt officiated the wedding with letters that Adam & Claire had written to each other before hand. Oddly enough, they were very similar, full of sweet sentiments and big laughs. While her father could not be at the wedding, he was their in spirit with a letter he had written before he passed to be read on her wedding day. He wrote it making sure to reference Adam even though this was 4 years ago and well before they were engaged. There was not a dry eye at the wedding, including me. After a moment of remembrance the reception ensued, special appearances were made by Claire & Adam’s dog ‘Pico’ as well as Mary-Kate Olsen, both in poster cardboard cut-out form. The wedding was made complete with a sparkler exit and pedi-cab at the end. Shout out to some of my favorite vendors, Posey, Greenbelt DJ, ILD, & Pearl Events for helping to make this wedding so awesome. Huge thanks to Kirsten Lewis for 2nd shooting this one with me.

Amrita was at a wedding I shot almost exactly three years ago. So naturally when she reminded me of this, I had to check out the photos. She rocked the dance floor. It was at that moment I knew the wedding would be amazing. We started the wedding day fairly early at her parent’s home in Magnolia, TX. They did a traditional Sikh ceremony for Amit’s side and a traditional Hindu ceremony for Amrita’s side. Both with beautiful pink outfits that made Amrita look like a true Indian princess. Amit was introduced at the barratt via tractor, in true Texas style. There was a small break in between the ceremonies and the reception which was much needed for everyone as this would be a long party going until the wee hours of the morning. At the end of the first dance Amrita & Amit invited their close friends and family on to the dance floor which was a perfect start to what was going to be an amazing night. Then their friends surprised them with a flash mob style dance. My former clients at the wedding had informed me it would be happening so I was not surprised but that did not make the venture any less impressive to me. It was one of the coolest things I have ever seen at a wedding and Amrita & Amit were beyond stoked. There is something about Indian weddings that gives people an unending energy, especially me. Despite shooting from early in the morning until late into the night, I wasn’t ready to go to sleep immediately after, I only wanted to look at all the colorful photos that we had taken. The morning after was painful but it would never stop me from doing it all over again.

With just a few e-mails and a phone call with Samantha, I knew that it was going to be the start of a good day and an even better wedding. I showed up to St Mary’s church on a beautiful sunny day in Austin to meet Samantha for the very first time. Samantha showed up a little after I did but she looked at me, looked at her dress, and said ‘lets get this started!’. Within 10 minutes there were already tears in her eyes after her grandfather came in the room to see her. Her grandfather and her dad walked her down the, one half of the aisle each; during which Louis could not help but shed tears as well. The pastor was great keeping them laughing during the ceremony after which we head to take more photos and to the reception at the Driskill in a vintage car. The reception dance floor was filled with people the majority of the night to a wide variety of music. Samantha & Louis ended the night with a flower exit and then asked Eric & I to join them on their honeymoon but alas, duty called in Austin. Adore these two.
