Every wedding photographer dreams of working a couple like Katie and Scott. They look like movie stars, (Katie reminds me of the Marcia Cross,) they are care-free, and their wedding reception was held one of Austin’s favorite spots — Abel’s on the Lake. I knew Katie and Scott were my kind of couple because they love to travel and Katie has a keen sense for beautiful design. (Check out her design company here.)
In between the ceremony and reception, we had the chance to go to some of Katie and Scott’s favorite spots, from the murals on the UT campus, to the famous “El Arroyo” sign on 5th Street, which had their names and wedding date. We had a blast!
Never before have I been so in love with a wedding dress. Every detail was exquisite. It was modern and classic at the same time, and I love the feathers on the bottom. As I’m posting this, the movie “The Great Gatsby” is being released in theaters. I’ve already seen how the Great Gatsby theme is going to start trending in the wedding industry, and I believe it’s safe to say that Katie set the trend.
Katie and Scott had an incredible send-0ff through on a boat off the dock at Abel’s on the Lake.  Thanks, Katie and Scott!
