Camp Lucy Wedding Photography

I have a gorgeous Texas fall wedding to share with you that took place at Camp Lucy in Dripping Springs, near Austin, Texas. There are several ceremony sites on this sprawling 275 acre Ranch but Victoria and Evan chose to exchange vows under the canopy of ancient live oaks, aptly named Sacred Oaks. These trees, which are native to Texas, had a wide spreading canopy with limbs reaching all the way to the ground. The dense greenery was the perfect backdrop for Victoria’s deep red color scheme.

Victoria and Evan currently reside in California but their roots and hearts are in Texas. For Victoria especially it was really about these special trees and I tried to incorporate them in as many details and portraits as possible. They could not have chosen a better setting to represent their love of nature and the Texas Hill country!

Many thanks to Victoria and Evan for having me. Also thank you to Grey Likes Weddings for featuring my photos on their gorgeous blog!

Casual Lakeside Dallas Engagement Session.

I know I’ve said this before but engagement sessions are one of my favorite types of photoshoots ever. You still get the same giddy lovie dovie excited couple but at a much slower pace than the wedding day. There is literally no timeline to follow. We can do whatever we want. We can take breaks. We can change clothes or locations. We can create whatever mood or scene you want. Casual, lifestyle, formal, themed. The sky’s the limit. It’s also is an excellent time to get comfortable in front of the camera before the big day. Because let’s face it, unless you’re a professional model being in front of a camera is awkward. If I had a nickel for every time someone quoted Ricky Bobby “I’m not sure what to do with my hands” I’d be a rich woman. I get it. I even feel awkward when I have photos of myself taken. It’s nerve wracking. Do I look ok? How’s the hair? Please don’t make me look stupid! So, like I said, engagement sessions are the perfect way to break the ice, photographically speaking.

Kaitlin and Ryan wanted something casual and outdoorsy for their engagement session. I immediately thought of Lake Grapevine which is one of my favorite lakes to shoot at. I love the feel of these cozy photos and Kaitlin’s cute romper from Anthropologie!

Romantic Southwind Hills Barn Wedding Featured on Elizabeth Anne Designs

This was a special wedding for me because Lacee and Matt requested I use primarily film vs digital photography on their wedding day. Even though I am a hybrid shooter (meaning I use both film and digital cameras at weddings) using film exclusively comes at an added expense to the client. More film means a higher lab bill. It means hiring an assistant who also shoots film, etc. Mo’ Film Mo’ Problems. (Not really, I just wanted to say that ;) Requesting this means you have a discerning eye, and you value the perfectly imperfectness of film. You want timeless, classic images with grain so good you could sop it up with a biscuit. I’ll be honest not many couples request this so it made my little film nerd heart skip a beat! Which is why I’m so excited to finally share their wedding with you. It’s not every day I get a wildly good looking and stylish couple like Lacee and Matt, who also happen to be just about the nicest down to earth people you could meet AND who value photography as much as I do. WIN WIN WIN WIN

Lacee and Matt had an evening wedding so these next few images were actually BEFORE the ceremony, also known as a “First Look”. First looks are absolutely crucial if you have a sunset/evening ceremony time. Otherwise you miss out on these beautiful natural light photos.

Elizabeth Anne Designs had this to say about their beautiful day:

“Lacee and Matt’s vision of an effortless, romantic autumn wedding came to life when they selected the scenic barn at Southwind Hills to play host to their November nuptials. Along with a dream team of Oklahoma wedding pros including the spectacular Poppy Lane Design, the couple designed a wedding filled with lush, natural flowers, candlelight, and dramatic draping. Theirs was a wedding filled with personal touches, from the ceremony altar, handmade by Matt’s family, to Lacee’s garter, sewn by her Great Grandmother, and to commemorate the joining of their families, cherished photos were displayed at the reception. The couple had a hand in each detail, from flowers to fashion. Lacee is the picture of understated elegance in a custom gown from Helen Enox Fine Fabrics and Jimmy Choo flats, and Matt’s bespoke tuxedo from MySuit and Gucci shoes are picture-perfect. Champagne bridesmaids dresses complete the bridal party, with bouquets designed to appear as if they were freshly gathered. The complete devotion and total joy shared by Lacee and Matt is evident in each gorgeous frame captured by Jenny McCann!”
