I thought I should let you all know that I am throwing in the towel for shooting weddings. There are a lot of reasons but the main one is that I have kids and they are only young once. Other people may scoff but that is ok because I don’t live my life for other people. I have to make sure that my family is taken care of and I didn’t feel like this was happening while being a wedding photographer. I also didn’t see much progress and felt like I was SHOVING doors open to make anything happen. So right now I am being a Mom, soul searching and trying to tap into every aspect of my creativity. BUT if you still want family photos, birthday photos, Christmas photos etc I would be more than happy to help you as these are MUCH shorter time commitments than a weddings. I may or may not ever do weddings again but I did love doing them and will give my full heart to the last two that I will be shooting. If you would like to follow our new adventure in crafting and kid related fun you can check out my new blog here… Enjoytodaymomma.blogspot.com (working on being a full time blogger with this new blog we will see where it goes). Thank you for all your love and support over the years!

So last week I photographed Keni and Wayne’s wedding at Lakeway Resort and Spa. It was so beautiful there! I LOVE the big glass windows! It made for an AMAZING ceremony backdrop! Keni booked me over a year ago in which in between now and then we did a boudoir shoot and an engagement session. Which was GREAT so that I could meet them and get to know them as they don’t live in Austin. I like to suggest to bride and grooms to have an engagement session to get to know each other and get used to having their photograph taken. Back to Keni and Wayne, they are such a SWEET couple! Totally in love! Their favorite nickname for each other is “Buddy” – tooooo cute! Well onto the images here are some of my faves….
Keni had a GREEN center stone! GORGEOUS!!
Her bridesmaids looked amazing in black! Then her jr. bridesmaids (her sisters) were in adorable jewel toned bubble dresses!
GREEEEEEN SHOES!!! and BLUE TOE NAILS!! ADORABLE! Then how can you not LOOOVE his socks!
I KNOW, STUNNING!!
This was at the end of their aisle runner, this is the first one I have seen that I actually LOVE! The writing is awesome and the rhinestones! Awesome!
Wayne shed a tear of joy (above)!
This Dance pic above was one of MANY group dances, they were AMAZING at getting their groove on! It was such a fun reception!
They made paper pomanders, which was BRILLIANT because paper doesn’t wilt!
As you can see by the menu, dinner was AMAZING!
Loved their cakes, the golf balls were made of white chocolate!
They had their guests sign a guitar as their “sign in book”, Wayne plays guitar. They framed a well wishes card sent from President Obama and the First Lady.
Keni and Wayne went out onto the patio to enjoy hand rolled cigars!
Keni made some pillows for two couches that were in the Reception Area, too cute!

I wish you all the best! May you have many years of love and happiness!

I have known this bride for YEARS! I was her youth leader when she was in youth group almost 10 years ago! I became and still am best friends with her best friend at the time, they grew apart when our friend of ours moved to Maui. Mainly because life happens and we meet these boys that become men and ask us to marry them! So after her proposal she contacted me as over the years she has fallen in love with my work. We reconnected and I am so thankful we did! Not only is Christine one of the prettiest people I have ever seen in person she is also the sweetest! (Kindof makes you want to throw up or hate her, but then you can’t cause she is so freaking nice! LOL!) Oh also her nickname is “Teenie” and you will see why, I think I could wrap one hand around her waist! (again I HATE her LOL just kidding sweetie just wish I had your metabolism! ) We have had several deep heartfelt talks since reconnecting and they were so timely and needed for me! Thank you Christine for be such an encouragement to me and being a friend! I look forward to continuing our friendship and getting our guys together too! You have such a sweet man! And he is one lucky man!
It is 4:30am and I neeeeeeeed to go to bed. There are a few more that I would like to add but until then I hope you all enjoy these photos from this very beautiful wedding!

I hope this inspires other brides out there. Enjoy these images of love!
Isn’t she gorgeous!? I LOVE her little pink and white fairy girls!!!
This was an idea I came up with since the kids were running around anyway why
not run around the bride and groom and cause some fun wedding motion blur.
I LOVE LOVE LOVE brooch bouquets!
The bridesmaids carried a bundle of Baby’s Breath- so sweet! As there were TONS of kids involved in this wedding!
They did a birdseed ornament (since it was December) that once the season was over you could
put it outside and watch the birds go to town on it! What a cleaver wedding favor!
Handstiched ring pillow that reads “Me-N-You” so freaking adorable! That little girl is Lacy’s little girl
from a previous marriage but is now a daughter to Chris as well! Oh and the wedding
fairies wore little wings and rang bells as they walked down the aisle!
Zilker Clubhouse overlooks downtown and is perfect for a rustic vintage wedding!
This is the bride and groom’s son, isn’t he adorable!!! Makes me want to have a boy
(NO not pregnant right now) Keep an eye out cause I am going to be putting up some
pics I took of him at a whole session of his own, it was sooooo cute and fun can’t wait to share with you!
Sand for Sand Ceremony
I LOVE how the sand spilled everywhere!
This is a guitar pick the Bride had made for the Groom as he is a musician. So sweet!!
OHHH what a GREAT idea for a Christmas gift next year or maybe anniversary
One of the Groom’s relatives collected over 300 jars for Y2K and as you know it didn’t happen
but they were put to GOOD use at this wedding! Also they filled the bottom with
bird seed which I was told you can get a BIG bag for $25 that filled all 300 jars!
This is a line from the Bride and Groom’s favorite song!
They put lace into LARGE embroidery hoops to make these unique and beautiful decoration!
Can I just say the food was AMAZING! It was catered by a friend of theirs MAN was it TASTY!! They also got pizza for the kiddos
Smore’s bar with a fire pit to roast in.
Hot cocoa and coffee bar had these unique mugs! I LOOOOOVE fun mugs like these!
I would LOVE to buy/steal/be gifted these two mugs in particular Lacy
Father daughter dance old and young
THIS WAS MY FAVORITE TORTE OF ALLLLLLL TIME! LACY PLEASE SEND THE RECIPE!!!
The ring shot was the Bride’s idea as this is the feet of the Bride and Groom’s son,
adorable! Then, what do you put next to a pic of feet? SHOES!
This was a fun take on a guest book. They painted a bare tree and had guests put their thumbs in green ink to create leaves.
Congratulations Lacy and Chris!!
