FAQ

THE STUDIO

  • the studio that I use is a rental space and must be booked at least 2 weeks out

  • because it is a rental space, other people not associated with me can book it for the date of your shoot, so some dates that are available now could not be available if you wait too long to email me back

  • backdrop colors available are: black, white, gray, pink, green, blue, tan, red

    • we can get other colors but we need 3 weeks to get the paper ordered and delivered to the studio- each roll of paper costs $90 and you can own it after you buy it heads up, they are pretty long. like 8 feet long.

OTHER LOCATIONS
  • you are free to book other locations on your own

  • Laguna Gloria has to be booked 2+ weeks out and is $100/ hour, you can book it here at this link:

    • before booking LG, please let me know what time slots they have available so I can pick the best time for lighting

    • if you want to book another location, that’s great too! Just please again, let me know what time you’re thinking so I can make sure it looks good for lighting purpose

“Courtney, if we are out in the middle of a forest or something, where will I change my outfit?”

 

Don’t worry, I have a pop-up changing tent!

WEATHER

“We’re 30 days out and it looks like it’s gonna rain! What do we do?”

 

“We’re 5 days out and it looks like it’s gonna rain! What do we do?”

 

touch base the day before! In Texas, the weather changes so dramatically, it might be pouring in the morning but sunny in the afternoon!

 

“We’re 2 days out and it looks like it’s gonna rain! What do we do?”

see above!

 

“Our shoot is tomorrow and it looks like it’s gonna rain! What do we do?”

see above!

 

If something like the freeze is predicted again, we can adjust accordingly. Or if a hurricane is coming through, but for regular rain showers, it might clear up by the time our shoot starts.

LOCATIONS

All of the locations on this guide are free and open to the public! I frequent these spots often because there is a ton of variety and lots of different options within walking distance at any of these places. If you have somewhere else in mind, that’s great too- I love exploring new locations as long as they are safe and legal. (No shooting in the middle of a highway etc.)

A couple of things to note: locations like Laguna Gloria, Sekrit Theater, and The Blanton are also places you may see on my website or Instagram. They often need to be booked 3+ weeks out, are subject to availability, and have a location fee. If you want me to look into those locations I am happy to do so, just let me know!

ADD-ONS

ENGAGEMENT SESSIONS

Engagement sessions are a whole lot of running/ jumping/dancing around while I yell things at you like, “WALK LIKE YOU’RE REALLY DRUNK!” There’s a lot of laughing & much more running around barefoot than your wedding day. On your wedding day, you’ll be all dressed up with a bunch of places you need to be and there will be a bunch of people expecting things from you. Engagement sessions are much more chill, and you can get out those I’m-in-front-of-a-camera-what-do-I-do-with-my-hands jitters.

5 TIPS FOR THE BEST
ENGAGEMENT SESSION EXPERIENCE

01 GET EXCITED

Get excited! Really. There’s no pressure. You get to show up and completely act like yourself and you will end up with pictures of you and your love TRULY BEING YOURSELVES. Butt grabbing, double-chin-laughing, and all. Mindset is everything! If you’re excited about our shoot, it will translate into the pictures.

02 PICK A LOCATION

Pick a location that means something to you, even if you’ve never been there. Whether that’s the coffee shop where you met, a trail you like to walk together, a drive-in movie theater you’ve always wanted to go to, or a creek where you fish together. Even if you’ve never been somewhere (like Enchanted Rock!), just being excited about it is enough in my opinion!

04 OUTFITS

Most couples like to wear one casual outfit and one dressier outfit for their session. I highly recommend this! That way you’ve got tons of variety. I’ve got lots of tips as far as outfits go, so email me and we can talk more about it!

05 XO

Give yourself plenty of time to get to the location. Stressing out about traffic or arguing before the shoot will translate into the pictures. This time is a way to honor your relationship, and you can do so by not rushing yourselves, or being hangry :) Also—making out a little in your car beforehand is always a good idea! Just saying.

03 PROPS

Don’t cringe—just hear me out. Some great props to put some ideas in your head are your pet, a motorcycle, swimsuits and towels, pizza, a guitar, water guns, or a cute blanket to sit on.

HOW TO PLAN YOUR WEDDING

Here are a few tips on how to plan a wedding to make the process a little less “pulling-the-hair-out-of-you-head” madness and more fun and enjoyable for the both of you!

01 INVITE THE PEOPLE WHO MAKE YOU SHINE

Obligations can be tricky. In my research to give my clients the best day possible, I’ve talked to a lot of married folks about their weddings. 99% of them wish they had cut down their guest list. I’ve never talked to a couple that said, “Man, I wish more people had been there!” in fact, most of them say the opposite- they wish there had been fewer guests so they could really spend time with each person. Think about it this way: if you have 500 guests, that’s 500 people you’re splitting your time between, which doesn’t leave a lot of time for each person.

02 DON'T DO IT ALL ALONE

I cannot recommend a wedding planner or day of event planner enough. The last thing you want on your big day is for people to be coming to you asking you logistical questions. Wedding planners allow you to just sit back and enjoy the day. This is the biggest regret of my aunt—she wishes she had a wedding planner more than anything because people kept coming up to her asking questions like, “What time was the grand entrance happening?” and “Where should they put the cake?” and she was in charge of coordinating it all. If you have the ability, hire a day of planner! You will NOT regret it!

03 FOCUS ON WHAT REALLY MATTERS

At the end of the day, your wedding is about the lifelong vow you’re making to your partner. For you, this is your WEDDING DAY! For everyone else, this (to be blunt) is another wedding their attending. Don’t plan around other people, plan around what y’all really want to do.

04 DON'T TRY TO CRAM EVERYTHING TOGETHER

It’s inevitable on any wedding day—things will be running behind. I know that’s not what you want to hear, but it’s the truth. And that’s okay. When designing your timeline, build in an extra 15 minutes here and there so you have time to freshen up and have a bite to eat or simply catch your breath!

05 MAKE SURE IT FEELS LIKE YOU

Pinterest can be such a gift and the #weddinginspo tag on Instagram can be so fun to scroll through, but make sure that you don’t lose sight of what makes you, YOU in the planning process. One of my teachers in high school had hamburgers catered at his wedding because that’s his favorite food. He and his wife (who have been married for 10+ years) say it was one of the best decisions they made about their wedding day. It’s so special to hear guests say “Wow, this whole day really feels like THEM!”

REHEARSAL DINNER

Rehersal dinners can be anything from a nice resturant to a tons of blankets in a park with pizza and sand volleyball. Or it could be s’mores and barbeque at a lakefront Airbnb! There’s plenty of time for formality on your actual wedding day so make your rehearsal dinner as fun as you want! It’s also a great idea to consider doing your toasts at your rehearsal dinner—that way they can be between your family and closest friends and you can have plenty of time to dance and see your other guests at the wedding reception.

THE DAY AFTER

If your’re not immediately jetting off on your honeymoon, a great way to spend your first day married is with a big brunch with you loved ones, a hike with your dog, or a big family day at Barton Springs. Another idea: Get dressed in your wedding clothes and visit the place where you had your first date for your post-wedding day photo session.

WhatleyWedding_598.jpg

GETTING READY

Getting ready pictures generally start toward the end of the actual getting ready process. Most brides prefer to take pictures of themselves getting ready after their makeup and hair are almost completely done. During your getting ready process, I will spend some time taking flatlay pictures (your wedding invite, rings, boutonierre, florals, and shoes), as well as shots of your wedding dress and the bridesmaids’ dresses. Make sure to give your makeup and hair artists plenty of time so they aren’t rushed. After I take pictures of the flatlay and details, I will pop back and forth between you and your fiancee’s rooms to get those getting ready pictures.

01 BE MINDFUL OF THE LIGHTING

This is the most important part of this whole wedding guide- seriously. Odds are that most, if not all, of your wedding inspiration pictures that you’ve saved on Pinterest or Instagram have some form of amazing lighting. Whether it’s soft and even or the perfect golden sunset, lighting can make or break wedding photos.

By the end of this, you will be a MASTER at recognizing good lighting. For getting ready photos, I like to stick near big windows and mirrors to get as much of that outdoor light as possible. Turning off all indoor lights to get rid of the flourescent orangey-yellow cast will be my first order of business.

Outdoor ceremonies have the best light—there is simply no way to beat natural, outdoor light. Depending on the time of day and whether or not you will be under some form of cover will determine whether you’ll have shad- ows on your face. I reccomend either having your ceremony under no cover if it’s an hour before sunset (perfect if you’re doing a first look before the ceremony) or under trees/shade if your outdoor ceremony is mid-day. For sunset ceremonies, I like to shoot backlit—with the sun behind the officiant and the couple—so if you’re walking down the aisle, you’re walking toward the sun.

Indoor ceremonies in spaces with massive windows are fabulous because again, bringing as much natural light indoors is our goal here.

Thankfully, most wedding venues have picked up on the fact that big windows are 1,000% the way to go. If your chosen venue doesn’t have big windows—if you’re getting married in a gorgeous church, for example—I will absolutlely embrace those shadows. Just don’t expect bright light and airy ceremony pictures. Some of the most stunning wedding pictures have fabulous shadows, so don’t worry—we will get all the bright, sunlit pictures after the ceremony.

02 KEEP THINGS CLEAN + TIDY

Trust me, your getting ready photos will be much prettier without garment bags and shoe boxes strewn about in the background.

DouglassWedding_171.jpg

FIRST LOOK

The first look can be whatever you want it to be. It can be a first look with your fiancee—or if you want to for- go a first look with them and have them see you for the first time walking down the aisle, the first look can be with a parental figure or even your siblings!

DouglassWedding_213.jpg
PROS OF DOING A FIRST LOOK

The biggest pro of doing a first look is that some more reserved partners feel free to express their joy and delight in private rather than in front of their family and friends (as you walk down the aisle). Also that leaves so much time for picutres of the two of you, as well as the pictures of your wedding party! Also this makes things quicker after the ceremony so you can head right to cocktail hour or din- ner and spend lots of time with your guests.

If you have any questions or concerns about doing a first look (or just want to talk it out with someone who has been there for many first looks), please let me know!

TheBlakes_246.jpg
TheBlakes_482.jpg

BRIDAL PARTY

FAMILY

I will get plenty of pictures of both sides of the bridal party getting ready. If the bride and bridesmaids have matching robes or shirts in the getting ready space, I’ll make sure they’re captured in addition to everything else. Champagne, mimosas, balloons, or sunglasses are fun props to incorporate into these pictures! Or if y’all want to eat McDonald's as you get ready, that would be fun too! We will definitely get both the “getting ready” bridal shots as well as the ones where everyone is dressed like the picture above.

I will get so many awesome pictures of you and your family! We can do a first look with your mom or dad or siblings or whoever else you want. Whatever your family structure looks like, we can still tie in those traditional pictures as a part of your day! Also, please let me know if there’s a particular family member you want me to pay extra attention to when getting pictures!

Monahans_341.jpg

COUPLE'S PORTRAITS

I like to have a minimum of 25 minutes to get pictures of you and your partner. If you choose to do a first look before the ceremony, this is the perfect time to get pictures together.

If you want your first look to be walking down the aisle, we can take couple’s portraits right after family pictures and before the dinner hour.

CEREMONY

01 KEEP IT UNPLUGGED

Don’t worry, I will capture plenty of pictures. And even more, I promise that my pictures will be of higher quality than a zoomed-in iPhone photo. Nothing will date your timeless wedding photos faster than an iPhone sticking out into the aisle as you make your exit from your ceremony.

02 LIGHTING IS SO IMPORTANT

I know I touched on this earlier, but outdoor lighting and indoor lighting are very different. The magic indoor light in these pictures on this page comes from the MASSIVE windows on the left wall—almost the entire wall of this room was made up of windows. If these windows weren’t here, the room would be really dark and I probably would have had to take these pictures with flash. Which is still pretty, but a different vibe entirely. If your venue has less than stellar windows, I am happy to use flash, but make sure that’s allowed (particularly if your venue is a church).

03 OUTDOOR LIGHT

If you do end up having an outdoor ceremony, the direction of the ceremony space in relation to the sun and time of day is so important. On the next page, you can see the difference between a ceremony spot in the shade at 5pm and a ceremony spot in the sun at high noon. I will do my best with all these scenarios but the direct sun at high noon will give you shadows under your eyes.

DavisWedding_543.jpg
LaneWedding647.jpg

TAKING SOME TIME FOR YOURSELVES

Let’s sneak away after dinner is announced for a few minutes! Particularly if you had your first look walking down the aisle and we didn’t take those pre-ceremony couple pictures. We can get some final pictures of just the two of you outside in the sunset. Once we do that, I will leave y’all alone to hang out together and you can re-join the party whenever you’re ready.

RECEPTION

01 TWINKLY LIGHTS ALWAYS

From a logical standpoint, in order for a picture to be taken, you need a light source. During receptions, lights are generally low or non-existent. So when it comes to reception pictures, your light source can come from a couple of places: my flash or twinkly lights. My wedding galleries have pictures taken mostly with flash. If you prefer a softer, more ambient look for your reception or ceremony pictures, you need tons of twinkly lights or your reception would need to start before sunset At most of the weddings I have photographed, I end up using flash. If you want a different, softer look, twinkly lights from Amazon or Home Depot are the way to go. (They don’t have to be the Christmas tree lights—there are nicer options!)

02 KEEP SPEECHES + TOASTS SHORT

Short and sweet is the way to go! Or you can have toasts shared at your rehearsal dinner—that way it’s a moment shared between only your closest family and friends, and they can be as long as they want.

03 BE SURE TO FEED YOUR VENDORS

Feeding your vendors is important! We will eat when you do so we don't miss any important moments.

04 HAVE A GREAT PLAYLIST/DJ

Music totally sets the tone for your reception, so having a great playlist/DJ/band is important! My vendor recommendation list is toward the end of this guide.

DowntownAustin_80.jpg

DAY AFTER SESSION

Jenna and Noah had their first date at Hut’s Hamburgers and Amy’s Ice Cream in downtown Austin. When they got the news that Hut’s was closing, they knew they wanted a session in their wedding clothes at the place where they had their first date. Your day after session doesn’t actually have to be the day after your wedding—it can be after you get back from your honeymoon, or really whenever you want!

6 BONUS TIPS FOR A STRESS FREE DAY

TIP 01

Prepare your flat lay. Flaylays include your invitations, flowers, rings, ring box, guestbook, save the date, shoes, jewelry, and an extra piece of ribbon from your bouquet to use as decor in the pictures. Having all these pieces in a box gives you one less thing to track down on your wedding day when you’re trying to get ready and I’m trying to get those shots of all the details.

TIP 02

Keep your getting-ready space clean. Your getting-ready photos will be much prettier without a bright yellow Forever 21 bag sitting in the corner of the bridal suite.

TIP 03

Be sure to eat. You’ve spent time and energy picking out food for this day—be sure you get to eat some of it!

DavisWedding_965.jpg
TIP 04

If there’s something fun or different you want to do on your wedding day, like spending the morning with your fiance, then do it! You don’t have to have catering and a cake—a P.Terry’s food truck or a s’mores making station are both great alternatives.

TIP 05

Make sure EVERYONE tries on their dress/suit/ pants/shirt after their final fitting. I once heard about a groom who tried on his suit before his ceremony and realized they made his pants six inches too short and they had to run out and buy new pants! Let’s avoid this by trying on your outfits one last time after your final fitting.

TIP 06

Overall, trust your gut. Your hopes and dreams for your wedding day are allowed to change. Make sure to include the people who mean the most to you, and you will have a great time!

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Do you give out RAW (unedited) files?

Nope, I do not. Editing is half the process, like making a cake. I wouldn’t give you a pan of cake batter. Magic happens in the oven!

Do you have a photo checklist you work off of?

Yes, I do—only for family photos! Please let me know of any people you want me to pay particularly close attention to like your grandparents, or if someone close to you is your officiant or traveled from a faraway place to be there on your big day. Providing me with a long list of photos you want “Bride in her dress!” “Floral arrrangements” hinders my ability to be creative and capture the day. I will need a list of family photos- we can talk about this more later!


Will you edit my skin/body/Photoshop me?

I’m not a personal trainer and I believe in body positivity for all, so I will not edit body parts! I will touch up skin spots that aren’t usually there.

Are you still able to capture all the important moments without a second shooter?

Yes, absolutely! Second shooters are particularly helpful when shooting the bride’s walk down the aisle, flatlays and reception pictures. I can still get all the good stuff without a second shooter, but ultimately, you will end up with more photos if you have a second shooter.
