Occasionally, I have the pleasure of working alongside the insanely fun and talented Tyler Schmitt of The Mill Photography Studio as his second shooter. This wedding was one of those occasions. Desiree + Laurie's wedding was full of so many wonderful details as well as wonderful people. I had a BLAST working with them all! Here are some of my favorites from their day. Click here to see Tyler's full coverage of their day.
Mother's Day is coming up, so why not celebrate by doing a session with you and your Lovies? That's exactly what Darcy did with her two babies last week. We were able to capture some beautiful images of her and the kiddos as well as some more realistic shots of what really goes on during these photo shoots. (tantrums, streakers, and silliness) I am SO excited to get to share these with you! Contact me today to set up your Mother's Day Session! (Also, a great idea for a gift for Father's Day... You know Dad needs an updated photo of you all for his desk!)

I have been DYING to share Celeste's bridal portraits since we did them last November, and I'm thrilled that the time is finally here!! She and Chris were wed yesterday at Pecan Springs Ranch in Dripping Springs, Texas. Despite the crazy weather, the day went perfectly! A preview of their big day is coming up next on the blog, but for now... this.
I've been up to lots of good these last few days in Charleston. Last week, I teamed up with Ooh! Events in Charleston to capture this beautifully designed styled shoot. Here is the first official teaser. Many more photos coming soon!
I have been in Charleston for a month and a half now, and I wanted to give you all an update on how this trial period is going. In case you weren't aware, I moved me and Nolte out here to stay with my parents for a few months to see if we wanted to make this our new permanent home. My parents moved out almost three years ago and couldn't say enough good things about the city, and so far, I understand why.
The city is beautiful! Full of history and charm. Charm. That is the number one word that comes out of my mouth the most to describe this place. It's just adorable! The colorful buildings, secret hidden alleys filled with tiny bars and perfect restaurants with impressive menus. To be honest, when I first got here, I wasn't too excited. Seeing the "tourist's view" of the city isn't quite as exciting as seeing the local's perspective. I have a long list of new favorite restaurants and bars that I will share eventually just in case you ever make it out this way to visit.
Some have been asking if I am going to make this my forever home, and the answer... I still don't know. I am still trying to figure that out. I love it here, but I also love Austin. It really is a difficult choice. Luckily, I don't have to make a decision for another two months, so I am going to enjoy as much of this beautiful city as I can and hopefully I will know soon enough. I will be in Austin in March from the 4th to the 24th. Weddings, Spring Mini-Sessions, and lots more fun going on! Let's get together for coffee and catch up or let me know if you'd like to get on the Mini-Session calendar. I can't wait to see you all!!
Below, I have posted a collection of images I have taken (with my iPhone) since I've been here. This will give you a little taste of what this place is all about. Everyone needs to come out to visit this city once in their life. It's totally worth it!
Until the next update...
Austin (& Fredericksburg) Spring Mini-Sessions are here! Get your session locked in before it's too late! Call Melissa at 512.733.4927 or click here to book your session today: https://app.shootq.com/public/~348c8c/contact
