From the Photographer

Our final photoshoot for Southern Love Workshop at 800 Congress in Austin, Texas This 800 Congress wedding shoot was the third and FINAL shoot of the first-ever Southern Love Workshop in Austin, Texas. Southern Love Workshop is a workshop-styled weekend for photographers where you can learn, connect, grow, and be inspired. I had such an amazing time being a part of such an incredible opportunity to create beauty with like-minded people.

The design inspiration for this shoot was boho industrial – such a fun contrast! We sought to combine a bohemian bride with the city boy and the urban space with the softer stylings made for gorgeous photos. The dress, designed by Rue De Seine, was the star of the show – a nontraditional bohemian-styled gown with rust-colored lace and a pop of soft rose within the dress.

Bright Colors, Fun Florals, and a Vintage Car

Gypsy Floral did a magnificent job with the flowers. They utilized Ikebana bowl arrangements on the tablescape, which added a fun touch to the table. The bright colors were stunning and contrasted so beautifully with the other elements of the shoot. The overflowing red roses and ranunculus out of the El Camino were, by far, my favorite piece of the shoot. Fun fact: Emily, the owner and lead designer of Gypsy Floral, has been dreaming up a fun installation for her vintage 1984 El Camino ever since she bought it a few years ago. It was perfect!


I had such an incredible time shooting for these three very different, very inspiring shoots at the Southern Love Workshop. The other creatives involved possess talent and passion like I have never seen before and it was an honor and a joy to work alongside them! I hope you enjoy viewing these photos as much as I enjoyed snapping them!
