We're not quite into the blisteringly hot part of the year just yet, and being outdoors at sunset is very pleasant indeed. These shots of the lovely Elizabeth were taken at San Gabriel park in Georgetown.

Emily & Jerred's Wedding http://www.richardmcblane.com/blog/2015/9/emily-jerreds-wedding I really enjoyed shooting Emily and Jerred's wedding at the River Oaks Garden Club in Houston. Even the post-ceremony formals (which aren't always the most fun for people who just want to get to the eating and drinking and dancing), were a blast, thanks to a very funny and up-for-it crowd.

Heidi & Omar's Wedding http://www.richardmcblane.com/blog/2015/8/heidi-omars-wedding Heidi and Omar's wedding at Chapel Dulcinea in Austin was a very intimate affair. Both bride and groom are accomplished musicians, with Omar even performing a song for Heidi during their reception, making the rest of us husbands look like unromantic chumps in the process. I also loved, loved, loved their choice of music for the reception - mostly classic rock 'n' roll and R&B from the 50s and 60s. I'm pretty sure this is the only Texas wedding I've ever shot where they didn't play Boot Scootin' Boogie.

Kristin & Cody's Wedding http://www.richardmcblane.com/blog/2015/5/kristin-codys-wedding 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.

Anna & Brent's Wedding http://www.richardmcblane.com/blog/2015/4/anna-brents-wedding 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 http://www.richardmcblane.com/blog/2015/3/sxsw-2015-an-above-average-evening-with-the-upright-citizens-brigade-theatre 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

SXSW 2015: Domino Records Showcase at Mohawk http://www.richardmcblane.com/blog/2015/3/sxsw-2015-domino-records-showcase-at-mohawk 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.

SXSW 2015: Film http://www.richardmcblane.com/blog/2015/3/sxsw-2015-film In the past, I've covered a lot of panels and shows during SXSW, but this year I got to shoot a few movie premieres. While mostly low-budget indie films, it was a real treat to shoot and talk to some people whose work I genuinely admire, particularly Reggie Watts (Comeday Bang! Bang!, soon-to-be band leader on The Late Late Show) and Mark Duplass (The League, The One I Love).

SXSW 2015: Panels http://www.richardmcblane.com/blog/2015/3/sxsw-2015-panels I shot quite a few panels during this year's SXSW. As I've mentioned before, taking pictures of people talking under convention center lighting is never going to be too much fun for a photographer, but I do enjoy the experience of being there and listening to what the speakers have to say. Here is just a small selection from this year's panels, which include the following people...

  • Jonah Peretti (founder and CEO of Buzzfeed)
  • Cameron & Tyler Winklevoss (rowers / internet entrepreneurs)
  • Wiz Khalifa (rapper)
  • Lauren Giraldo (digital personality)
  • Robert Rodriguez (film director)
  • Dave Stewart (ex-Eurythmics musician)
  • Frank Sinatra Jr. (singer)
  • Steve Van Zandt (E Street Band musician)

Also, while not technically from a panel, I've included some shots of comedian James Adomian, who presented this year's Interactive Awards. I'd seen him at last year's SXSW where he instantly became one of my favorite comedians. While I'm a wee bit disappointed I didn't get to see him perform a set this year, seeing him host the awards and then having the opportunity to photograph him afterwards was a great consolation.

Taryn & Shane's Wedding http://www.richardmcblane.com/blog/2015/1/taryn-shanes-wedding First wedding of 2015! And I don't think I could've asked for a nicer bride and groom to shoot. Taryn and Shane were one of the most easy-going and relaxed couples I've worked with in a while, traits they shared with their entire wedding party. It's always immensely fun to shoot a group of people who have such great chemistry together.

I'd also like to give a little shout out to wedding coordinator Rachel Stepanov of The Fairytale Effect. Wedding coordinators have such an incredibly hard and stressful job to do, but Rachel handled this one with seemingly effortless grace and professionalism. My photography partner and I felt like we were well taken care of. Highly recommended!

Lisa & Ryan's Wedding http://www.richardmcblane.com/blog/2014/10/lisa-ryans-wedding For Lisa and Ryan's wedding, I got to spend more time with the groom and groomsmen than I normally would, and I had a blast. What I really loved about Ryan and his groomsmen (apart from them all being an extremely amiable bunch) is that they weren't afraid to get a bit silly for the camera. The shot of them all jumping in front of the Kindred Oaks 'LOVE' sign never fails to make me smile every time I look at it.

Lauren & Ryan's Wedding http://www.richardmcblane.com/blog/2014/9/lauren-ryans-wedding There was a point right before Ryan and Lauren's wedding ceremony where the very young flower girl had quite a bit of a meltdown (something that very young children, flower girls or not, are wont to do). With makeup smudged all over her face, and the ceremony starting in mere seconds, she recovered from her meltdown but had no option other than to head down that aisle, smudged makeup and all. It was a funny moment, and I personally think that it's photos of things like this that will really make the family laugh years from now. It's the unplanned and unexpected moments that have the greatest impact, emotional, comical or otherwise.

Madisons CD Release Party at The Saxon Pub http://www.richardmcblane.com/blog/2014/8/madisons-cd-release-party-at-the-saxon-pub I still remember one of the very first times I shot a Madisons performance. The band was playing to a small handful of people in a tiny record store on the east side of Austin. Here we are just a few short years later at the Saxon Pub, one of Austin's most beloved and respected music venues. The place is filled to capacity with people outside are having to be turned away. Madisons have certainly come a long way, and I honestly can't think of a band more deserving of their success. Tonight was one of several shows celebrating the release of their sophomore album, You Can Take Your Sorry Ass Back to West Texas!, which has already received some pretty glowing reviews in the music press.

Heather & Ryan's Wedding http://www.richardmcblane.com/blog/2014/10/heather-ryans-wedding I shot Heather's bridal portraits back in March, but it felt like it was yesterday as I drove to her wedding at Briscoe Manor in Richmond, near Houston. I had been very much looking forward to seeing Heather and her family again, and I had fun shooting the wedding. It was a classy event, to be sure. My favorite shot of the night came right at the end during the bride and groom's exit (see the very last photo below). Exit photos are notoriously difficult to capture - they're often outdoors at night, they happen quickly and there's lots of movement. Heather and Ryan, bless 'em, made their exit right outside the remarkably well-lit door to the reception hall as their friends and family waved them off with glow sticks. It's the joy in Heather and Ryan's faces that makes this photo for me.

Madisons Promo Shoot http://www.richardmcblane.com/blog/2014/6/madisons-promo-shoot Madisons are no strangers to this blog. In the past I've mainly shot their live shows, but this time around I was asked to take some band promo shots in support of their upcoming album, You Can Take Your Sorry Ass Back To West Texas! I learned that trying to coordinate a seven-piece band (and occasionally a dog) is certainly not without its challenges, but at no point did working with Madisons feel like actual work. They are a stupendously nice bunch of people, and this shoot was a lot of fun for me.
