Let me tell you, this was the longest engagement session ever, I am officially dubbing it ‘the marathon’ session. It included a dinner break! And, this shoot was a kick off to one hectic week of shooting 5 sessions in six days. (A mistake I won’t make again because the editing back log is killing me!) But, these two were so much fun to photograph and we had one hell of an adventure together.

Heather and David wanted to grab a few quintessential ‘Austin’ photographs around South Congress with bright colors, so this is where we started out session, praying that the rain would hold off.

Then we headed out to Dripping Springs to the Duchman Family Winery and Damian Mondola’s restaurant Trattoria Lisina. If you haven’t made a trip out there, GO now! Its gorgeous, the winery has a great tasting room and the Damion’s restaurant is amazing! (he is a part of the Carrabba family and has Mondola’s Italian Markets in case you are trying to make the connection.)

These two love each other, look after each other and truly are best friends. I can’t wait to see them get hitched next year!

Then these two treated me to the most amazing pizza ever…yummo! We sat out on the patio, waiting for the sun to go down and the twinkly festive lights to shine. So we could get one last shot of the night.

Big hugs you two! Looking forward to your wedding.
