THEY’RE BACK! Fall family mini sessions.

I did these for the first time last year and absolutely fell in love with them. These quick little gatherings where I get to meet new families in Austin. Walk and talk with them, shoot their moments as a family. All before that time of holiday cards. Capturing time which, now having a two year old, has never felt more special (and necessary!). I’m excited to do these again. Please see below for this year’s schedule, but don’t hesitate to reach out should you need to chat more on availability.

Venue, bride, groom, family goals.

I’ve known Brittany and her family for years and years, and actually shot her sister Amanda’s wedding a few years ago. Brittany came to me when she and Dillon first got engaged (in Italy!) and said she hadn’t talked to anyone else, wanted to check with me first. Done.

The couple remained engaged for awhile while Brittany finished her law degree at IU, and began getting settled with Dillon and their new life in Cincinnati. Then, to celebrate her graduation, the couple traveled down to Austin where we shot their engagement pictures at the Rowing Dock and Sekrit Theatre. The two let me do whatever I wanted, and I knew their wedding day would be the same. Magical, laid back.

Fast forward to last spring when I traveled back north to Indianapolis, spent some time with family, then traveled to Cincinnati to capture their much anticipated, beautiful day.

Two of our dear friends moved away for Brendan to pursue an exciting, and hard-earned, career as a professor at Texas Tech. During their visit back to Austin, we woke up bright and early for a sweet anniversary session at Brendan’s PhD school, University of Texas. It was so nice to them, walk the empty campus, talk about life nowadays, and recapture their magical wedding day. I’m still amazing how people still fit in their wedding dresses….

The beautiful Catie Hoehner is the second sibling of the Hoehner family; one of my new favorite families. She’s baby sister of John, my groom from this wedding last summer. As soon as I heard she was considering markit I shouted ‘oo pick me’ in the hopes I’d be able to keep working with this fun, loving, warm family again.

My wish came true, and I was much less pregnant but equally excited to show up on that December day. Welcomed with the same hugs, I knew right away it was going to be a perfect wedding day for Catie and Michael. The weather didn’t cooperate with us. But with a little creativity, timeline and ceremony location shuffles, it all came together. And nothing but smiles from the bride and groom and families (of course!).

One of my favorite memories from the day are the notes that each bridesmaid gave to Michael as they walked down the aisle. Each piece of paper created a message from Catie to Michael. And the anticipation of each note he received, just before Michael saw Catie for the first time coming down the aisle, only added to his adorable, teary reaction. I’ll never forget this! The most incredible way to finish our season last year, and a blessing to witness these two come together in what I  know will be a lifetime of those same dance floor silliness, huge grins as they climbed into their getaway car, and fist pumps walking back down the aisle for the first time as husband and wife.

Chris and Jordan discovered markit through my most recent bride, Catie, who go married last month. The two are planning to be wed in Jordan’s hometown of Tulsa, OK but wanted to get engagement pictures in the city where the currently reside in our sweet Austin. Similar to previous couples, we wanted to find and embrace the both cityscape and natural of beauty of ATX, so we visited the edge of downtown, right next to Town Lake, toured the new Austin Library (amazing!), walked the trail and ended our time right at sunset on the Lamar Pedestrian Bridge.

Best wishes to you both. It was such a joy to meet you and I hope planning continues to go well, that you wedding is everything you’ve dreamed of, and that the excitement of marriage surpasses all stress that comes with it all! xo

I love nothing more than when a bride sends me her dress when she finds it. Finds the dress. I love to help and be involved in any way a couple will let me. Timeline, color palettes, whatever helps. I feel that much more connected and giddy for the day when I arrive and give you that hug.

Jenny and Carter did just that. Jenny initially reached out to me as they began their long time and process of planning, but it just didn’t align with their budget. Then, Carter got a new job and she reached back out, hoping I was still available and I was! It was a match made in wedding heaven. And their perfect day fulfilled every beautiful detail we’d talked about leading up. Jenny is a brilliant pharmacist and has the craziest schedule I’ve ever heard. But you’d never know it from how everything just magically came together on that beautiful, sunny, fall day in downtown Austin. My favorite unique moment of the day was the “handshake game” which is funnier than it sounds. Maybe it was just Jenny and Carter that made it funny…it had the whole room laughing. The best man had me in tears with his sweet words, and Jenny and her dads dance left me breathless.

May you two continuing enjoying your sweet life you’ve built together in your downtown Austin apartment. You are two of the most genuine people I’ve ever met and your kindness is infectious. xo
