Barr Mansion Wedding Photographer: Sam & Dax

What a gorgeous wedding day at one of my favorite venues in Austin! Sam and Dax had their elegant wedding at the Barr Mansion, and their day was filled with the most precious, beautiful and funny moments.

Samantha (aka Sam) and I hit it off immediately on the phone. Sam is charismatic, real, energetic, and impossible not to love. Not to mention that she looks like the Michelle Pfeiffer, so she’s every photographer’s dream to photograph.

Even after photographing their engagement photos and their wedding day, I still stop and stare at the images of Sam and Dax together. Their passion, admiration, and deep love for each other is truly captivating.

It was really difficult selecting images — I pulled my wonderful husband over to the computer to help me out. (I loved watching my husband stop at each photo and say, “I really love this photo.”) We couldn’t decide on our ultimate favorites, so here’s a sampling of our sneak peek.

Thank you to Julia Robinson, who is always such a fantastic second photographer to work with. Many of her amazing photos, including the first one below, are due to her amazing talent. The night wasn’t complete without the awesome Joel Giorgio, of Greenbelt DJ.
