Bye-Bye Baby Leave :: Addison’s Back

Get ready for some posts!

Although we have been booking weddings into late 2018, today I am officially off "baby leave"... Yay! Jack is still my little companion most work days, but I am excited to be charging up gear, trying out new light modifiers, and putting new techniques to use! So, get ready to see sneak peeks and fun portrait highlights. I'm quite excited to be back!

Now off to a great Senior Portrait session!

Big love, Addison

Uptown Engagement Portraits :: Melissa & Michael

M & M : Engaged

After being introduced at church, the first words out of Michael's mouth were "M&M, Michael and Melissa".

And so it came to be.

Love this engagement shoot near Mueller Park just up from downtown Austin.

When I told Melissa to bring a long dress, I never imagined she'd be this 'knock-out' fantastic. So beautiful! And those shoes! Oh my gosh. Stunning. #shoeenvy

Enjoy,

Happy New Year :: Bring on 2017

While Looking Back on 2016 Weddings

This Christmas, we put together another collection of wedding greeting cards (thanks to Moo.com). Here are just some of the beautiful wedding faces we had the pleasure of photographing in 2016! So many great couples, families, wedding parties, guests, and overall memories made while celebrating their commitments to each other.

I wish a fantastic 2017 for every single one of you (and for all the future newlyweds to come in the new year)!

Sending hugs and hoping to see you again soon... maybe for those baby/future family portraits... Ha! (Tell the boys not to worry-- no rush!)

Big Texas Love,

Addison

One of my favorite parts of the photographing process, see the images we capture go into print form. Just awesome! **Make sure you are printing your photos! Digital is a great backup option, but archiving in print, that's the way to go and share with your children and grandchildren!

Lone Oak Barn Wedding :: Christine + Justin

Wedding Day :: November 25, 2016

at The Lone Oak Barn

Round Rock, Texas

:::

I absolutely love being a photographer, and I love photographing weddings. That said, there are times when being a wedding photographer is HARD work. Just ask any professional photographer. There are reasons we do what we do, and there are reasons we photograph the subjects we choose. Sometimes I would pay to be creative and photograph just one child's portrait when instead I'm faced with a large, rowdy (possibly disrespectful) crowd and overwhelmingly-large guest count. Let's be honest, personalities or (cough-cough) alcohol plus personalities definitely add some factors to the whole picture of being a professional wedding photographer. We are there for primarily the bride and groom, but we must also work with and amongst whoever is there attending. Like I said, sometimes this is hard.

However, there are those special, gem-like weddings that might be big, having many guests and numerous wedding-party attendants, and still they shine above the rest and are overall an absolute DELIGHT.

Christine & Justin, your wedding was a JOY. 

I might just go beyond that and say it was PERFECT. Yes, your decor, venue, style were all just beautiful. Well done. But your guests (friends and family alike) were beautiful too, so respectful and simply wonderful to work with and talk with. I never at any moment felt like "the work"...  You two really must be an incredible, loving pair to have such devoted, caring people around you.

Thank you so very much for giving me the opportunity to not only capture your special moments but to also enjoy doing it.

I hope you cherish these wedding highlights below, and I cannot wait to share your full wedding gallery with you soon.

Sincerely (LOTS of LOVE),

Addison

How they met... 

Christine & Justin met their Freshman year of high school through mutual friends. They quickly became close and referred to each other as best friends. He went to all of her volleyball games, and she went to all of his baseball games. They always supported each other.  As college began, life led them in different directions and eventually they fell out of contact, until Junior year of college when Justin called Christine and asked her out on a date. Although they had crushes on each other when they first met, they know now that they never dated in high school because God had greater plans for them. They had a lot of living and learning to do before He brought them back together!

Words from Bride...

Planning the Wedding "I am not a "girly" girl. I don't wear heels often and hair and makeup isn't exactly one of my talents. Justin and I prefer to spend our time hiking with our pups, camping, fishing, and hunting. We knew from the start that we wanted to get married in our boots and eat our hearts out in BBQ. My Grandpa Voigt has always owned a lake house in Cadiz, KY that looks like a barn. It's candy apple red and even has a staircase in the silo. I spent all of my childhood summers with my cousins in the barn, and that place holds a very special place in my heart. The running joke in the family is, "I was raised in a barn!" Because of this, I always imagined getting married in a barn, and when we saw Lone Oak Barn, we just knew it was perfect! It was the perfect blend of rustic elegance.  We wanted our wedding to feel relaxed. We just wanted everyone involved to come, pray, eat, and party with us! That's why the decorations were minimal, and the food and drink was plentiful. For us it was all about spending time with the family who traveled in from all over the country to celebrate with us!" The Bridal Bouquet "I don't know if I told you the story behind the significance of the lone red tulip in the bridal bouquet. In the bridal bouquet there was one red tulip so that I could carry my Grandmother, Mildred Voigt down the isle with me. In 2010 we lost her to Parkinson's disease. The red tulip is the symbol for Parkinson's disease. She was an extraordinary woman and an example of God's love to everyone around her. I just wanted her to be right beside me!" ~Christine (the bride)
