Three Tips for Hiring Austin Wedding Transportation

Posted on Jul 22, 2018 in Elopments - Austin & Central Texas, wedding planning, wedding pros, wedding tips, wedding trends, weddings | 0 comments

If you are newly engaged–congratulations!–and welcome to the process of wedding planning. While wedding planning is often painted as being chaotic and stressful, it doesn’t have to be that way with guidance from professionals and a bit of organization along the way. Here are some tips to keep in mind as you’re cruising the web and looking for the best transportation provider for your Austin wedding. If you keep this information in mind, you’ll be able to clearly determine which service will work best for your wedding.

Consider the needs of your guests

This is always a wise thing to do when you’re wedding planning! Your guests have likely made a lot of preparations to attend your wedding. They have probably had to take time off of work, arrange supervision for children or pets, along with getting you a gift and possibly traveling to you. This is why it’s a good idea to arrange a shuttle for guests, specifically ones that are coming in from out of town. They might not be totally familiar with the area, and this can save them from spending extra money on a rental car. Plus, you will know that they will get back to their hotel safely after indulging in drinks at the reception.

Do your due diligence when researching

It’s important to take all things into consideration when you’re looking for a transportation solution at your wedding. You don’t want to hire a company that isn’t experienced with this type of event! Be sure to look over their website carefully, and ensure everything is easily accessible. They should have a modern website and clear communication when you try to get in touch. If they fall short on any of these points, you might want to move on to the next possible company.

Go above and beyond with interviews

You might think that it’s enough to simply call and talk to transportation companies, but it isn’t! When you’re interested in a particular company or vehicle, ask if you are able to come to view it. This ensures that the company owns their Austin Limo Bus rather than acting as a booking agent for other companies. Plus, you will feel a lot better knowing what will show up on your wedding day. There are a lot of instances of couples being on the receiving end of a dirty vehicle, one that has mechanical issues, or one that doesn’t show up at all!

Layne + Tucker: 15 Year Anniversary Vow Renewal

Posted on Apr 23, 2018 in homepage, photography, portraits, wedding photography, wedding photography, wedding photography | Comments Off on Layne + Tucker: 15 Year Anniversary Vow Renewal

Layne & Tucker have been married 15 years. They originally contacted us about a party in Austin, but over time, that turned into a vow renewal with their family in Vegas. We met up in Austin to capture them at 15 years married. I love their mod outfits, which complimented a few places around town that we ventured together and took photographs.

Congratulations on 15 years Layne & Tucker!

Jane & Jared had a small, intimate wedding with close family at Jacoby’s Restaurant & Mercantile in Austin, overlooking Lady Bird Lake. They got ready at the South Congress Hotel, where we always love to film. We also shot a bit at the Driskill Hotel, and at their reception at Capital Grille. We were also lucky enough to film their rehearsal dinner at the Josephine House Apartment.

Both from the south, these creatives met at The Creative Circus in Atlanta. They and their families kept us laughing and smiling all day.

Many congratulations Jane + Jared!

Anna and Andy had a very elegant wedding at South Congress Hotel in October. Anna’s beaded dress by Odylyne the Ceremony was absolutely amazing, and combined with her hair and makeup (by GertieGlam & Co.), she had a 1920s Cleopatra vibe. House of Margot Blair provided the stunning florals and coordination. A creative couple from NYC (Andy has a film background), we shot their wedding videography on Super 8mm film… check it out below!
