English countryside wedding featured on Martha Stewart Weddings!

We were thrilled to have Lucy and Robie’s wedding featured on Martha Stewart’s Weddings!!  This wedding took place in Wiltshire, England and is packed full of goodness.  Although I encourage you to go over to Martha’s website for all the details, I also wanted to share the photographs, in all their glory, on photosmashing too.



Lucy drew a map of the town for the guest to use as a guide while visiting for the wedding.  Lucy and Robie created the save-the-date, rehearsal dinner and wedding invitations…among other things!  The hot air balloon on the invitations and map were inspired by drawings hanging in Guyers House, where the reception was held.

Guyers House….Over one hundred laser-cut birds hung from the ceiling.  The day after the wedding, these birds were cut down and given to the guests.  Julio Reyes, friend and partner with the bride & groom in the design company, BBITT, designed the birds.  Note:  You’ll be hearing more about this company in the future! 😉The seating chart was drawn by the bride’s father:The American friends and the British friends were each given the task of writing a song for the occasion.  The (American) song being sung in this picture was written by Sam Douglas, who got help singing from the British kiddos.  This song was called “Lucy and Robie in Outer Space.”

It was stuck in my head for weeks!

Again, please go over to Martha Stewart Weddings to read more about the details of this wedding.


One photo – Aspen wedding.

I traveled to Aspen, Colorado over Labor Day Weekend to shoot Lauren and Scott’s wedding on the top of Aspen Mountain. I know what you’re thinking: “how sad for me, right?!”  Ha!  I was in wedding heaven.  Very few things can beat the majestic Rocky Mountains as a backdrop.   As usual, it threatened to rain, but we got lucky and were able to shoot the ceremony and all the portraits outside.  I’ll post more from this wedding soon.

Thank you Lauren & Scott for having me shoot your wedding.   I cannot wait to share the photos with you!

Have a good weekend, all!


iPhone photos from a weekend in the English countryside.

Do you have an iPhone?  Well, if you do, then you know that the iPhone 4 in particular takes truly fantastic photos for a phone.  While we are busy uploading the real wedding photos, I thought I’d share the photos from the phone.  This is where we all stayed.  It’s called Guyers House and it is in Corsham,. England.  It is as picturesque as it gets.  The weekend was pretty magical.  Everyone had a spectacular time.

During the cocktail hour on the lawn after the wedding ceremony, guest enjoyed several games of croquet.

The day after the wedding, there was more croquet.  But more importantly to Austinites & southerners that had escaped the Texas heat, there were hours of laying on the lawn.  The weather was picture perfect.

More later….


San Francisco sneak peek…

We just returned from shooting a wedding in San Francisco.   Glorious, glorious, glorious, I tell you!  There is much more coming from this wedding.  But here is a sneak peek:

Thanks to Stacy McCain and her team for their wonderful event planning and attention to detail!  Of course, you’ll see their hard work in the next post about this wedding.  The reception at The Ferry Building was gorgeous.

Stay tuned,
