It will last a lifetime.

One of my favorite things to do on a wedding day is capture portraits. Most of the time we think of wedding photography as primarily “documentary.” Or, in other words, as only capturing “candid moments.” We definitely capture all the small, big, and meaningful moments during a wedding day.

But I have a confession to make: I consider an over-emphasis on documentary photography an incomplete wedding service.

That’s right, I really do. We will spend anywhere from 6 to 8 hours with you on your wedding day. About 80% of that time is purely documentary. But that other 20% of your day? We feel it’s important — almost paramount — to take a little time to craft heirloom portraits.

These portraits are from a recent wedding we did in Austin at Texas Old Town (Stone Hall). We scheduled a little extra time to ensure we got portraits of the Groom & his groomsmen.

We love giving these portraits away, for clients to print and frame and look at forever.

And a big thank you to Ellen, Travis, Todd, Don, Phil, & Scott. You all were amazing to work with at Texas Old Town in Austin.Scott Spain-Smith
