Lena + Liju : Married Tuesday, October 28, 2008 |

Wedding Date: September 27, 2008
Photographers: Thurston* and Mariae*
Ceremony: St. Theresa's Catholic Church
Venue: Safari Texas Ranch
Videographer:
A&A Video Productions
Makeup: Danielle at The Perfect Face

Happy Tuesday stalkers. :) So, yesterday was Lena and Liju's one month anniversary and I thought what better than to celebrate it with some pictures from their wedding :)!! Alright, that's a lie. I'm about a month behind on blogging, and it just coincidentally was their one month anniversary. :) I first met Lena and Liju at Jimmy+Julie's wedding last October! Lena and Liju actually "played" the parts of Julie+Jimmy when they performed a skit during the reception. Since then, I've had the opportunity to photograph quite a few of their friends wedding and because of that, I was really excited for their wedding day to come! Well, it has been nearly a year since we've first met and now a month before they saw any pictures from their wedding...YIKES!

Stalkers, meet two of the sweetest people you could ever hope to get to know - Lena and Liju. :)



Lena wore flip flops under her dress! For those brides out there...YES! Flip flops are totally acceptable wedding attire!!


Stalkers, meet Lena's sister....who was also her maid of honor. She umm..was hungry?? J/K. She was actually trying to fix Lena's wedding necklace here. I thought this picture too funny not to share. :)


Lena helping her mom get dress...it's usually the opposite right? :)


..and while I was at Lena's house....Thurst was about two miles away - over at Liju's house for family prayers.


The beautiful bride. Lena has amazing amazing eyes right??.


And we just did a few quick pictures around the house....Obviously, I love window light. :)


One of Lena's must have photo. :) Lena and the girls got in trouble for this photo. We were at the church and she wanted to peek out to look at the guests entering the church...but got yelled at by the wedding coordinator at the church for pulling on the blinds... OOPS!


The ceremony. I love how bright St. Theresa's light up their altar. Makes shooting without a flash sooo much easier on us. :)


Liju "tying the knot" with Lena. :)


The manthrakodi. Stalkers, if you've been following my blog, you should be very familiar with this part of the ceremony by now. :)


So, initially, we were going to go somewhere else for pictures. But because of time limitations, we ended up just doing the wedding party photos a few blocks from the church. (Stalkers, look how high one of the bridesmaid got her bouquet to go up to! That's nuts!)


Lena and her girls. :)


Wedding bling. :)


Some formals of the newlyweds. :)





So, I've seen plenty of wedding reception entrance....BUT I have to say this was the first time that I've ever seen the bride's parents "boogie" themselves down the entire length of the aisle.


...and not to be outdone.....


The first dance. :)


Stalkers, check out the seating arrangement list! This was a first for me. I've never seen anyone posted seating arrangements like this. It almost made me feel like I was in school and checking to see if I made it on the team! HA HA HA :)


Good news. Thurst and I did make it on the team! That's right! Lena+Liju included us on their seating arrangement - which means we GOT FED! Yes, this is blog worthy. Plus, we only go by one name...much like Madonna.....yes we are superstars like that. :oP


So, what is always so fascinating to me is how there are always skits, dances and singing at an Indian wedding. Here are some of Lena+Liju's cousin acting out (with video assistance) how they first met!


Thurst caught this wonderful expression of Lena's mom cracking up during the skit!


A solo dance....(this girl was ammmmaaazzzzinnnnggg!!)


..and a song to the bride+groom. I'm not showing all the entertainment that they had at this wedding...there were wayyyy too many!

The bouquet toss. I LOVE Lena's expression here!!


Tearing up the dance floor. :)


The bride with her mother in law. :)


And a favorite image. :) (Rizwan, thanks for the extra video light!!)


Lena and Liju, congratulations. :) I hope married life is everything and more than what you hoped it would be! :)

Nicholl : Bridals Wednesday, October 22, 2008 |

Session Date: September 25, 2008

Stalkers, if you remembered, a few weeks ago, there was a huge incident regarding the Tuscany of Garden Oaks/Bella Terraza. Tons of brides were affected and although most had weddings that were still a few months away - some into the next year, I got a call from Nicholl about needing immediate help for her wedding in just a few short weeks. I wasn't able to shoot her wedding, (although you can view your beautiful wedding at
PaperDolls' blog, who happened to volunteered her services to Nicholl) but I was able to get a chance to meet her and her wonderful mom, and take her mind off of the whole situation for a bit, with a bridal session downtown.

Stalkers, meet the incomparable Nicholl. :) I was in love with her headpiece. Yum! Plus, her gown wasn't too shabby either :oP.


We were at the hotel and the staff at the bar was soooooo nice to let us have the run of the area for her session. :)


We then left Nicholl's mom back at the bar and kidnapped her to go around the hotel and the surrounding areas. :)


Yes, she's a gorgeous girl. :)


And finishing off with one of my faves...I love her introspective look here. :)


Nicholl, at the end of the day...I'm glad everything turned out soooo wonderful for you. :) I really enjoyed getting to know you and loved how positively you handled everything. :)

Brandi + Justin : Engaged |

Session Date: September 22, 2008

About a month ago, after I got back from Denver, literally the same day that I drove back, Thurston and I met up with Brandi and Justin for their engagement session in Gruene, Texas. Gruene is a sweet little town south of Austin that has gently been resisting change since 1872 (I saw a sign stating exactly that). The first time I've been in Gruene was during Keely's bridals, but it was wayyyyy too crowded to even contemplating shooting there. Luckily when we got to Gruene for Brandi and Justin's session, it was a late Monday afternoon and we got the bulk of the little town to ourselves. :)

Stalkers, meet the lovely Brandi and her fiance, Justin. They are getting married in about two weeks - ACK!


This was the first time I got the chance to walk around Gruene, so we hijacked a couple of places....and got gently reprimanded for trespassing on this porch area. :)


I saw this gate and immediately fell in love with the rust and the design of the gate!


Yummy wall. :)


Stalkers, look at the light through this tree. There were crazy flares there, and I love how ghostlike it made the image. :)


After Gruene, we headed back to Austin to take a couple of pictures around downtown Austin. Hijacking a lobby of a hotel... :oP


I love how much fun Brandi and Justin are with each other. :)


See...told you so. :)


And I'm going to end this with my favorite image from the shoot. :)
Brandi and Justin, have fun on your wedding day!!! And Justin, you are going to freak out when you see how gorgeous Brandi look in her dress....:)

Courtney + Ben : Married Sunday, October 19, 2008 |

Wedding Date: September 20, 2008
Photographers: Hali* and Thurston*
Ceremony: Hyde Park Baptist Church
Venue: Stephen F. Austin Hotel

Saturday, September 20th, had me driving down to Austin from Dallas to document Courtney+Ben's wedding with Thurston since Mariae was in Denver that weekend. I was excited to meet Courtney and Ben for the first time, especially hearing all about the Model A with RUMBLE SEAT that the couple would be doing their getaway in! Yes, pictures have been a long time coming...so let's get straight to the point!

Stalkers, meet the absolutely lovely Courtney and and the incredibly lucky Ben. :)


The church...:)


I LOVE LOVE LOVE the bling-bling on the shoes!


Getting ready.....:)


Ben's first look at Courtney....down the aisle. I love his serious expression here, especially since Ben's is such a jokester all the time! (By the way, I love that everyone wore bowties!!! I think it looks sooo classic!)


The little head popping out between Courtney and her dad is Ben. :oP


Stalkers, look at this amazing church through Thurston's eagle eye view. (Courtney had her girls' dresses to match the colors of Marge....the car she used in her bridals!)


Mr. and Mrs. :)


A quick little session Thurston took with the girls when their bouquets unexpectedly arrived... :)


And one with the entire wedding party after the ceremony. :)


Some details... :)






Stalkers, their floor was packed allllll night long!!


Can you guess the school here? :oP


Stalkers, don't be jealous. I got to ride in the front seat of this Model A. The history behind this car is that all of the girls in Courtney's family has used her grandfather's Model A as their getaway car!
Courtney and Ben, congratulations!!
