I was in Minnesota for a wedding about a year and half ago. It was at this wedding that I had the pleasure of seeing my sorority little sister Karina for the first time in a few years! She was traveling from Boston with her then-boyfriend Garrett for the same wedding I was photographing. After a full day's camera work, I finally had the opportunity to meet Garrett and say hello.
Fast forward a few months later and when they became engaged, I was hired!
The most beautiful memory I have of their wedding day is when I walked into her bridal suite. There she was, mid-morning, sitting in front of a large window with the Austin skyline behind and a coffee mug in her hand in her most humblest form with a big smile. She was smiling as she said hello and while her hair and make up were not even started yet, she was glowing. How awesome is my job!
It's these moments, and many more like them, that I love photographing weddings.
Karina and Garrett got married in downtown Austin and couldn't have picked a more awesome place. The Allan House is a beautiful old-world home located in the middle of downtown. It served as a perfect backdrop to bring two beautiful families together from the south and from the east coast to witness two beautiful souls get married.
Karina's father had the BEST speech I have ever heard at a wedding. The Best!
Congratulations Karina and Garrett! I am so honored to have had the pleasure of sharing in your celebration of a beautiful marriage. I look forward to seeing you both grow in marriage and love.
Happy Wednesday friends!
