I had the distinct pleasure of shooting Kristi and Levi’s wedding in Austin, Texas on May 22. I’ve known Levi since not long after our family moved to the Central Texas area in 2001. Levi was a basketball team mate of my son Josh and part of the same home-school coop. Although we exchanged a few emails, Kristi and I actually met for the first time on her wedding day. She was great to work with and I enjoyed getting to know her on her special day.
The venue was the Westoak Woods Baptist Church on Slaughter Lane in Austin. A great sanctuary for the ceremony with plenty of light and a courtyard for the reception. Although a little warm the humidity wasn’t too bad and some cloud cover made for a relatively comfortable outdoor wedding party.
Kristi right after getting her dress on and in anticipation of her wedding to Levi.
The dress was beautiful.
Kristi and Levi were traditional in that they didn’t want to see one another before the ceremony. That didn’t keep them from getting close.
Kristi’s sisters were her bridesmaids.
Levi’s groomsmen were his brothers.
All the men.
Kristi and Levi’s first kiss.

The couple agreed to a short private session during the reception. There was a small park about a five minute walk from the venue where we got away for a few minutes.
There was a great tree for posing.
I told them to just be themselves and enjoy the time.
It was a great day, great ceremony, great reception, and great couple. Congratulations Kristi and Levi. I hope you enjoy this sneak peak of some of the shots from your wedding day.
