Buddy & Jennifer

July 8, 2016.

Recently I had the pleasure of shooting an impromptu wedding for Buddy and Jennifer in Austin, Texas at the Lenoir Winegarden. The occasion was an engagement party, but in the middle of the party, they announced to their guests that they were going to go ahead and just tie the knot right then and there! It was quite a scene. Here’s what I captured of the evening’s events.

Blake & Meg Engagement

I had the honor of shooting this engagement, literally the engagement itself, and the portraits afterward. Located at the extreme east end of Galveston Island, this peaceful spot was like a secluded beach with very little foot traffic. I hid in a bush in the dunes while waiting for them to arrive at the spot he had arranged…

Here was the beautiful home and the setup for “the spot”…

I nervously awaited the couple, and then¬†finally they arrived! Here’s the sequence of my “spy shots” …

Then I emerged and she was surprised yet again… they were a lovely couple. I managed to capture a few good portraits and then let them get back to their special time. As usual, I had a very difficult time narrowing it down from the 500 shots from the evening. There were some sequences just too sweet not to share! The¬†light and environment was also worth documenting…

Then the walk back to the home where the party was waiting… great time for all.
