PAULINA & ALEX
CHELSEA & JAKE
I opened the weather app to see green and yellow pixels floating across the area marked “Georgetown.” Those tiny squares confirmed the day’s forecast: Raining cats with a chance of dogs. THIS was going to be a very interesting outdoor wedding, indeed. Although Chelsea and Jake had their hearts set on having photos taken in front of Kindred Oaks’ trademark LOVE sign, the outlook wasn’t so great. No matter how careful you may be, most brides will kindly remind you that a shining white dress like this has no business in a muddy field like that (especially before it’s made it’s way down the aisle). Then again, Chelsea isn’t like most brides.
With a disposition far sunnier than her wedding day sky, she pulled on her cowboy boots, hiked up the train of her dress, and happily marched out to that field, groom-to-be in tow. Like their engagement session, their wedding day was filled with peals of laughter (and lots of teasing amongst each other). It was clear that it was going to take a lot more than rain to dampen Jake and Chelsea’s big day. Congratulations, Chelsea and Jake!

KATIE & SETH
I don’t know what it is about these two, but somehow they bring the most amazing skies with them for their photo shoots. First there was their engagement session – a perfect Texas sunset with beautiful blues and pinks. Then, under a bright blue sky and billowy white clouds, Katie and Seth said their vows. And once their ceremony was over, we hopped over to the Horseshoe Bay Yacht Club shores where we were greeted by a sunset that rivaled that from the engagement session. I simply could NOT believe our luck! Congratulations, Katie and Seth! May your life together be as beautiful the Texas sky!

LAURA & CHRIS
It’s always an honor to be asked to photograph a wedding. And when I’m friends with the bride and groom, that feeling for me is magnified. I’ve known Chris (though he’s always been “Sovine” to me) for a good number of years now, and when he asked me if I would photograph his wedding, the only answer I had was, “ABSOLUTELY!” Ours is a friendship built on a mutual appreciation of the simpler things in life: good people, good music, good beer, and good food. In fact, I met his bride, Laura, at an awesome crawfish boil he hosted, so I knew their wedding at Hummingbird House would focus on precisely those things.
Their wedding program listed the day’s events as follows:
WE GET MARRIED
See what I mean?!?!?! And that’s exactly what they did. Laura was escorted down the aisle by her father and her son as music played. She and Chris said their vows (between plenty of smiles and giggles), and then everyone celebrated. The day’s activities overflowed with love, evidencing just how cherished these two are not only by each other, but also by the people who surround and support them. Laura and Chris, I can’t tell you just how honored I am that you asked me to photograph your wedding and just how happy I am that you found each other. I wish you all the best!! Congratulations!
