Ma Maison Wedding, Janelle & Marcus

Janelle and Marcus’s wedding at Ma Maison in Dripping Springs was one that I anticipated from the day we first met. I loved their chemistry, and how comfortable they were being themselves.

Janelle and Marcus are beautiful, funny, sweet, amazing dancers … and did I mention that they are beautiful?

Their venue, Ma Maison was a dream for any photographer — beautiful light, clean backgrounds, and  stunning, elegant, furniture that looks like it was from the best of Restoration Hardware.

Janelle and Marcus, thank you for letting me document your wedding day! Thank you to all of the wedding vendors, who are listed below.


Janelle’s dad saw her for the first time.


I love this moment with Janelle’s mom and Marcus’s mom — it’s such a sweet reaction.



Janelle getting her dance moves on with her sister and the bridesmaids while waiting for the ceremony to start.d

One thing that Janelle mentioned in her vows was Marcus’s dimples. Even when Marcus has a serious look, his dimples still show. (It’s a rare event that Marcus isn’t smiling — especially when Janelle is nearby!)


There’s never a shortage of laughter around their family and friends. Here’s Marcus with one of his brothers.


The first look!


Marcus got tossed into the air by his groomsmen. I’ll try to make a GIF of the sequences if I can, because it’s hilarious!


See? I told you that there wasn’t a shortage of laughter. This is Janelle with her dad moments before walking down the aisle. Photo by the awesome Julia Robinson.


I wish this photo came with a sound element, so you could hear them ringing the bell.


They practiced their first dance before being announced as husband and wife.


Chandeliers, a balcony, and a sweet couple = photographer’s dream


Janelle’s mom and a friend peer into the photo booth.


Aggie fight song!!


I was touched by the closeness between Janelle and her sister.


Marcus’s brothers and family keep their feet off the floor.


I love the layering in the following two images.


Can you guess what song was playing? That’s right — Shout!
