In honor of Philadelphia Eagles linebacker, Jordan and Ivana’s wedding day (TODAY!), I am thrilled to show off more from this gorgeous couple’s engagement session. It was clear from the beginning that these two are each other’s biggest fans, and I can’t wait to see where married life takes them. With Jordan’s NFL career in full swing, they split their time between Austin and Philly with the cutest little family of pups in tow. For more from our sweet bride Ivana on what it’s like planning a wedding between two cities, make sure to check out her interview on Brides of Austin from earlier this week and congratulations to these happy friends!

When Christen first contacted me about shooting her May wedding, she included a save-the-date video that she and her filmmaker fiance, Will, had made that had me smiling enough to know they would be a lot of fun to work with, and they did not disappoint! We spent their engagement session roaming around South Congress in the heart of Austin and managed to find a few gorgeous spots away from all of the normal chaos and crowds. Then we headed out to one of my favorite spots, McKinney Falls State Park, to finish up just before sunset. As you can tell from their photos, these two spend a lot of time laughing together and I can’t wait to be a part of their wedding next month!

I always appreciate an adventurous couple, so when Brooke asked if I’d be up for shooting at Reimer’s Ranch, I was 100% on board! It was well worth the climbing over rocks and lugging equipment around to capture such a fun couple in a beautiful place. We ended the session at Brooke’s family’s property just in time for sunset. I can’t wait to share their gorgeous wedding photos from last month, but until then–enjoy a bit of sunshine on this dreary Austin day!

I was fortunate enough to call Courtney a client this last year and she was a stunning one at that! We shot her sun-drenched bridal session out on the lake just outside of Austin and she slayyyyed. Most clients come to me feeling pretty nervous to get in front of the camera but Court was a natural. See for yourself! // Bouquet: STEMS of Austin // Film Processing: Photovision Prints cc0c1c2c3c4c5c6c7c8c9c10c11c12c13c14

I can’t get over how much beauty was wrapped up into this wedding day! Being from two different cultural backgrounds only made Senushi and Ryan’s celebration more heartfelt and unique! We started off the day with a meaningful Catholic ceremony in the heart of Tulsa, followed by a Buddhist ceremony on the beautiful grounds of the Tulsa Garden Center that evening. Senushi’s romantic vision came to life flawlessly thanks to the stunning florals, soft color palette, and of course, the sweet couple. I’m so excited to finally show these off! Congratulations Mr. and Mrs. Sullivan–if your wedding is any indication of your life ahead, we’re all in for a treat.

And special thanks to Style Me Pretty for featuring Senushi & Ryan’s wedding on their front page this week! You can see more HERE.
