Couple years back I drove and drove to west Texas to shoot an amazing wedding at a little hotel in a ghost town called Marathon. My phone didn’t work there and I had to drive through a storm that stopped me dead on I-10, but to this day it is still one of my favorite weddings and I’d love to go back for another. Today I am shooting the groom’s sister Kristin’s engagement session with her fiance Seth in South Austin and the Pennyback bridge in the hills near Lake Austin. Seth owns Ideal Skate Parks and builds custom skate parks mostly for municipalities. I talked at length with Seth about building skate parks not because I am a skater, but because I was fascinated with how they could finish concrete so perfectly with such amazing curves. We had a blast shooting their engagement and finding new and fun ways at looking at Austin! Their wedding, though not at a hotel in a ghost town, will be equally fun and unique being at Austin’s own Star Hill Ranch on Hamilton Pool Road.
