It’s always nice when we have the opportunity to shoot a wedding in a new venue. We get a fresh perspective on shooting and we get to have a blank canvas to work with! Rachel & Dayton had their wedding in the hill country at the new Ma Maison wedding venue. Such a beautiful backdrop for their summer wedding. One of my favorite moments was when they exchanged love letters & gifts before the ceremony around the corner. Dayton was so nervous he asked Caroline to take off her mirrored sunglass so he would not accidentally see her as she approached. It was such a sweet moment. Ma Maison also turned out to be a fantastic space for a fun reception complete with a live band and a hopping dance floor! Our favorite shot from the reception was during the first dances where were were able to showcase the beautiful open spaces and elegant chandeliers. The dance party continued into the night ending with a sparkler exit and a vintage car getaway.

It’s amazing that through people we have met over the years, via business, school, & friends we are able to meet people of all cultures, careers, & places. Weynab & Colin are some of those people we were lucky enough to photograph based on a referral from a former classmate Ben had at Texas state 7 years ago (who also happened to be living in San Francisco). Weynab & Colin had their ceremony at the Moraga Valley Presbyterian Church and the reception at the Bridge’s Golf Club in San Ramon. After photographing portraits on the beautiful grounds, exploring via golf cart, they had an action packed reception with tearful speeches, packed dancefloor, & spiced with a few Ethiopian traditions.
Sometimes we have a wedding that we cannot properly describe with words. A sweet & emotional first look, tables with candles as far as the eye can see, a sweet song written by parents sung by everyone, and a raging dance party complete with confetti. Well, it does sound pretty epic when we write it like that but the photos are the best way we can properly show off this wedding. We knew that Tatianna & Will were going to get down based on their dance skills at Sarah & Dan’s beautiful wedding just 2 months prior but we didn’t know that their friend’s could get down just as well as they could. They even hosted a competition, complete with trophy, to appoint an official champion. Thank you to Brock & Co Events for doing such an amazing job at this Austin wedding at the Driskill hotel.
Bucking the trend and opting for an all out wedding bash, Katie and Derek chose a favorite local dive, The Rattle Inn, to host their wedding reception. With everything local and nearby, their friends and family from out of town could really soak in the Austin scene for a few days and enjoy all we have to offer as a city. The ceremony was at St. Mary’s downtown; with its resplendent, freshly restored pink granite facade shining in the sunset light of the warm summer evening. We enjoyed a short blue hour photo walk near the capitol on Congress, allowing Katie to get a much desired image with an iconic Texas capitol building in the background. All in all a fun filled wedding day, a memorable party, and many, many great moments.
