A weekend full of camping and live music, Euphoria Music Festival brought the good vibes to Austin this year. Taking place in our backyard, this was my first Euphoria Fest to attend in its seventh year of existence. Perfect weather and an awesome lineup made for an unforgettable weekend of dancing at Carson Creek Ranch, located just east of downtown. Art Outside playe[...]
The most colorful couple I have ever had the pleasure of photographing. Lucy & John are magic together, and after their engagement session I knew this day was going to be extra special. The wedding was held at Justine's Secret House in east Austin, and it was full of all the good feels and creative details you could ever want. I left this one feeling blessed for m[...]
Last year I traveled to New Zealand to photograph a wedding (photos coming soon), and coordinated this epic styled shoot with my friend/former client Ashley Hibbard of Southern Belle Styling & Events. Seriously, I have to give her all the credit in the world for pulling this off. Ashley, you are a legend. Horses + a beautiful bride on Muriwai Beach makes for some [...]
I had the pleasure of photographing my friends Taylor Jarrett & Dagny Piasecki, who were just named the "it" couple by Camille Styles. They're like... super cool y'all. Also both are excellent photographers, go check out their work! We tagged up in downtown Austin, and wandered around without a plan, just the way I like it. The magic followed.
That one time I photographed this Legendary couple, The Menary's and their famous dog Leo at The [no longer] Sekrit Theatre in Austin.
This elopement was nothing short of magical, thanks to this very special couple and their dog Mona. When I first received the email from My & Sam they were originally planning a full-on wedding in Austin. Somewhere along the way, they changed their minds and decided to elope in Marfa, Texas instead. It felt right to them, so they ran with the idea. The only th[...]
A few years ago, I got my hands on a CONTAX 645 (courtesy of Taylor Lord) for the first time and never shared the results; until now. Developed by Photo Vision.
The Hype Machine lineup was stacked for Hype Hotel 2016 during SXSW. Here's my top 3: Jack Garratt, Bob Moses & Lewis Del Mar.
Lucy & John's engagement photos at Blanton Art Museum in Austin, TX.
This is Daisy, a gifted singer/songwriter out of Austin. If you haven't heard of her yet, you should take note. This girl is going places y'all. She has a certain way with people, and charm that is simply contagious, which makes her an easy person to love. –GD
This wedding has been a long time coming on the blog, but I'd say it was worth the wait. Last December we flew to Punta Mita Mexico to photograph Juliana and Marty's wedding at the St. Regis Hotel. Little did I know that this would turn out to be such an epic wedding, and the perfect way to cap off an amazing year. We documented the entire weekend with the wedding par[...]
A few weeks ago I was lucky enough to photograph the Whiskey Shivers, a bluegrass-fueled band from Austin with a mix of punk/rock. I'm not exaggerating when I say that these guys are ridiculous in every sense of the word. If you get a chance to see one of their shows while they are on tour, don't miss it. Good times guaranteed y'all. –GD
