Every year I like to take some time to cull through THOUSANDS of wedding day photos and bring together my favorites for a year-in-reveiw post. It’s not only fun to take a trip down memory lane, but it gives me a chance to look back and see how far I’ve come! 2017 was a WONDERFUL year for the business! The BEST year YET! We photographed 30 beautiful weddings in Central Texas with the sweetest couples ever. We also orchestrated 10 styled shoots with some amazing vendors!
WE PHOTOGRAPHED OUR 100TH WEDDING!!! (Check out that post here!)
2017 brought us back to some of our favorite venues (that feel like home at this point) like the magical Sisterdale Dancehall, rustic chic CW Ranch and Cherokee Rose, as well as the beautiful Southwest School of Art. We also had the opportunity to photograph beautiful new-to-us venues like The Hotel Emma, Kendall Plantation, The Addison Grove, Contigo Ranch, The Chandelier of Gruene, Paniolo Ranch, Tapatio Springs Resort, along with some beautiful private ranches.
2017 also came with awards, featured work, and making wonderful friends in the wedding business.
The Knot inducted us into the HALL OF FAME!
We were also featured in these publications! As well as our first print feature in The Knot Texas magazine!
This styled shoot at Hyatt Hill Country Resort and Spa was featured in Wedding Chicks! You can check out more photos from that here:
