Austin Texas wedding photographer

I am happy to share this lovely wedding in Austin Texas with you. After this amazing wedding in Florida I am super happy to be visiting Texas and photographing another lovely event for wonderful people. Sitting in the airport and organising my hand luggage a fellow traveler says “That’s a big camera bag. Where are you going and what do you do?” I’m going to Austin Texas and I’m a wedding photographer I reply.

Being able to travel for weddings is a privilege and I love the opportunity to experience new locations and the challenge and stimulation of working in new places.

Omni Barton Creek Resort

The Omni Barton Creek Resort and Spa is about 25 mins from downtown Austin. The resort is known for its golf courses and the hotel sits right in the middle of them.

On the morning of the wedding there was very crisp frost so I started the day early capturing a few shots of the frozen white golf course before it thaw.

Each side of the bridal party was getting ready in different parts of the hotel so after some detail shots I photograph the bride and her girls preparations and then I photograph the groom and guys getting ready.

St.Emmaus Catholic Church wedding

The wedding ceremony itself takes place at the St.Emmaus Catholic Church about 20 minutes from Barton Creek.

It was nice to have a relatively unplugged wedding, there were very few cell phones and cameras present during the ceremony. This has become a big problem at modern weddings and lately has been getting quite a lot of media coverage in the wedding world.

After the ceremony we took family photos by the altar while the majority of the guests made their way back to the resort.

As the happy couple exit the church there is a shower of white petals and then we then jump in a car and go for a photo session in the countryside not far from the resort.

The bride chooses to have her couple portraits at a destination near Barton Creek – The Rock House.

This is actually another wedding venue about 5 mins from the main resort and is a very quiet and tranquil place in the countryside.

Omni Barton Creek Reception and Party

Once we have enough photos we return to the Omni Barton Creek Resort. The guests are outside enjoying drinks and the last few rays of sunshine.

The Pavilion had been decorated and transformed so I take some photos of it before everyone goes inside. Then the bride and groom make an energetic entrance and then immediately perform their first dance.

Following this the bride dances with her father and the groom with his mother. Later in the evening, they cut a beautiful wedding cake. There is also a fun chocolate sponge cake that looks like a golf bag.

Lots of dancing and partying ensues and much later there is a noisy send-off. They drive off into the night sitting in the back of a golf cart!
