Summer feels as though it’s winding down, and even though it’s still 90 degrees outside here in Austin, I’m already thinking about fall engagement session inspiration. If you will it into existence it will happen, right?

Dreaming about sessions where cozy sweaters, layers and a date to your favorite downtown beer garden or warm coffee shop are exude warmth and comfort rather than excuses for a bit of free air conditioning.

When planning your outfits, think about the textures and tones of what you’re wearing.

Knit sweaters and wool skirts paired with your guy in jeans and boots and a flannel button down look so cozy against the fall colors outside.

Earth tones like burnt orange, cranberry, chestnut browns, mustard yellows and sky blues are complemented by evergreen and fuchsia scarves which contrast against the softness of Austin & the hill country.

So I present to you, a compilation of fall sessions for you to glean some outfit AND location inspo for your next Austin or San Antonio engagement session.

Ah Houston. My childhood memories involve electric green plush grass, Shipley’s donuts and humidity so thick you can swim in it. There are so many more I could name but I think you get the point.

This Houston engagement session is special because it features my cousin Chris and his lovely, adorable, now fiancée Jennifer! Not any old family member, Chris and I are the oldest cousins on my dad’s side of the family, meaning we spent a lot of time together being the *only* cousins back in the early 90s. It was so much fun to re-visit a huge city like Houston with a fresh perspective of a business-running adult and I really enjoyed the brief visits in the downtown/Heights/”inside the loop” area.

Chris and Jennifer are simply adorable together. This was the first time I met Jennifer and after a few minutes of awkward introductions, we laughed together over the silliest things and it really made the session fun. When I asked them how they met, Chris told me the cutest story. “Jennifer would wait for me to walk my husky outside before running her dog out to “randomly” talk to me.”  Wow! How sweet is that?? I love using dogs as an excuse to talk to anyone you find attractive :)

Congratulations, and I can’t wait till the wedding guys!

This week I’m breaking the rules and sharing two of my favorite photos from recent weddings. Neither of these photos are strong enough to stand on their own, and in fact, I think they work together to tell a mini story. Not every photo is a gold medal winner on it’s own because sometimes we all need a little boost.

Weddings always make me emotional. I get to see the pride in a parents’ eye as they walk their kid down the aisle. The nervous titter of bridesmaids’ being photographed while making weird faces during hair & makeup. Little kids on the dance floor shaking it without a single care about what others think. It’s a bittersweet moment for your parents, your siblings, your closest crew, and I always think about what my mom would do whenever I get married.

This photo makes me smile because for one moment, I was able to capture that post-ceremony energy.
