Kristin & Cody's Wedding

May 01, 2015

There's a lot to be said for the low-key wedding. Kristin and Cody chose to have their ceremony and reception at Cody's parents' house in Austin. It was clear that a lot of work was put into the event, but everyone came across as so relaxed and so comfortable. It made the proceedings look absolutely effortless. Kristin in particular was one of the most laid-back brides I've ever encountered. No stress and all fun is what it should be all about.

Kristin & Cody's Wedding - The Photo Booth

May 01, 2015

I loved Kristin and Cody's wedding, the photos from which you can see here. I was asked to set up a little makeshift photo booth, which basically involved just me, my camera, some lights, and some props graciously provided by our hosts. Good times!


Anna & Brent's Wedding

April 19, 2015

It's been almost a year since I shot Anna and Brent's engagement pictures, and I couldn't have been more delighted to finally be shooting their big day at Mercury Hall in Austin. Anna and Brent are one of the most genuine, downright lovely couples I've ever had the pleasure of working with. Even with all the stress that comes with a large wedding, they were so pleasant and courteous to everyone. It was a really wonderful day.


SXSW 2015: An Above Average Evening with the Upright Citizens Brigade Theatre

March 25, 2015

Comedy showcases at SXSW always bring me nothing but joy, but when the UCB Theatre is involved you know you're going to see something extra special. Hosted by Esther's Follies, it was great seeing such big names as Amy Schumer and Judd Apatow in such an intimate venue, but even the non-headliners were of the same exceptionally high standard. As one of many highlights (they were all highlights!), I was absolutely delighted to see Lauren Lapkus, a very prolific performer on the comedy podcast scene of which I'm currently a shameless addict.

Pictured below are:

  • Eliot Glazer
  • John Early
  • Jay Pharoah

  • Amy Schumer

SXSW 2015: Domino Records Showcase at Mohawk

March 24, 2015

I like shooting at the outdoor stage at Mohawk. The venue's three different levels can make for some interesting compositions. Tonight's Domino Records showcase was great. A particular highlight for me was seeing Hamilton Leithauser (lead singer of The Walkmen) performing his solo material. Man, that guy gets intense. The shots below also include the wonderful Matthew E. White and Laura Marling.
