Today I can officially announce that I’ve won the “Best of Weddings” for 2015 from The Knot for the 4th year in a row. I couldn’t be happier or more excited! 2015 marks the beginning of my 6th as a professional wedding photographer, so to win four out of the five years I’ve been in business is well beyond any goal I ever had. What is especially humbling, is that this award represents roughly the top 2% of wedding photographers in Austin and the surrounding Hill Country. If you’ve looked around there are some REALLY talented wedding photographers in Austin (really talented!), so I’m extremely honored by the award! I have to give my beautiful wife Elyse a big thank you for all her support and for graciously putting up with me. It’s no easy task to work all week, be on the road traveling some of those weeks and then come back and play single mom all weekend while I’m off shooting a wedding.
Also a lot of thanks goes to Barbara. Barbara and I have been shooting together for over four years. During that four years she’s made probably 90% of those weddings. She is an amazingly talented photographer, has the patience of a saint, is everywhere I’m not and on those days when the wheels start to fall of the wagon; the voice of reason to keep us focused on what’s most important!
Oh, and to all of my amazingly, wonderful couples. You’re the reason I love to wake up every day and go to work. I truly mean it when I say I can’t wait for Monday morning so I can get up and do something I love. Thank you, thank you, thank you!
