Wedding at Marie Gabrielle Restaurant in Dallas, Texas

I recently had the pleasure of photographing Lisa and Chris' wedding at the beautiful Marie Gabrielle Restaurant in Dallas, Texas. The beautiful gardens provided many opportunities for great images and the setting hides the fact that the restaurant is located in the middle of downtown with skyscrapers on either side. I hope you enjoy this selection of images.

Lone Star Wedding

Laura and Jess selected a spectacular location to hold their wedding nuptials - the Vintage Villas just outside of Austin Texas. I traveled down to Austin on the Thursday before the event with Laura's sister Sarah and her husband Nath (whose wedding I had photographed in 2009). Austin was experiencing one of its hottest and driest spells in decades and this fact became obvious the moment you left the cool confines of the terminal.

It is always nice to work outside your normal environment and be exposed to new and challenging situations. The Texas landscape and sunsets have won me over and I look forward to a return trip there very soon!

Here are some of the images we captured.
