the way a mom looks at her son before his wedding ceremony at Central Christian church in austin

So much love for Haley and Andrew’s big Central Christian Church and Mercury Hall wedding here in Austin. One of the hottest days of the year (like 106 y’all) didn’t stop these two from partying their butts off with all their college friends.

I mean, just check out the cake cutting photos for some epic expressions. I so love these venues and take any chance I can to go back. They’re perfect central locations for a church wedding and a little white house reception. The golden hour light at Mercury Hall is just a photographer’s dream and makes for the most beautiful “Austin” photographs.

The Royal Dukes brought down the house with their incredible talent as H & A’s friends and family partied with light up glow foam sticks.

This wedding was shot for Elissa R, my BFF and an all around awesome wedding  & elopement photographer.

mount bonnell proposal in austin, austin proposal photographer outdoors

Alex contacted me about 2 months ago, saying he wanted to propose to his long time girlfriend at Mt. Bonnell in Austin on a “weekend” trip. We hit a few roadblocks during the scheduling but we managed to make it work for my last free October weekend.

I hustled back from Marfa in order to capture Alex and Marissa’s Mt. Bonnell proposal right at sunset. What a true pleasure to capture the sweetest “all knowing” look on Marissa’s face as Alex got down on one knee. After which, she examined her new left hand bling which featured a diamond from her grandmother’s ring. I love when clients incorporate heirloom jewelry into new settings for modern times. Ah love is sweet. I hope fall brings many more Austin proposals!
