Austin, Texas Wedding at The Austin Zen Center

Melissa and Tim had a beautiful and peaceful wedding ceremony at The Austin Zen Center in Austin, TX. I’m so happy that I got the opportunity to head back to Austin to photograph this lovely couple. It was a great trip, filled with tons of shooting, and catching up with my old professors, colleagues, and friends. As many of you know, I went to school for photography in Austin and I love to go back every chance I get, which isn’t as often as I’d like these days with my studio in Durango, CO being so busy. Therefore, I jumped at the chance when my former colleague and friend Melissa asked me to photograph her wedding. Melissa is an incredible food photographer in Austin and it has been so fun watching her talent grow over the years since we both graduated. She is doing amazing things! I was also very excited to meet her little boy Jack who was an adorable addition to their wedding party. Jack made a very cute “ring bearer”! I also got the chance to photograph my first buddhist wedding. It was a very cool experience and I really loved seeing all the traditions, respect, kindness and generosity that these people bring forth. Melissa and Tim then had a mellow reception at Texas French Bread, and they provided a beautifully serene and intimate location with incredible food and atmosphere. Melissa’s very talented friend created the flowers and decorations. The apples, twigs, blossoms, and rocks were such a great match for the couple’s style! The cakes were done by Upper Crust Bakery and Capital City Bakery and they were so moist and delicious. Congratulations to Melissa and Tim and thanks for having me as your photographer!

      Melissa,
      Your words mean so much to me. Thank you for having me and I'm so glad you love the photos. Congratulations pretty mama! You rocked it on your wedding day and you were a beautiful bride.

  • Wonderful photos! You really captured the day - which was amazing! I felt so lucky to be able to be a part of such an important event in melissa's life- and it gave me a chance to get to know Tim a little better. You did a fantastic job, Kelly - there were so many different lighting situations going on, so it must have been challenging. But you captured them all perfectly!

      Thank you Alisa! It was a wonderful day!

  • Melissa and Tim's love and the peace of the Zen Center love really shine through in these shots! You did a beautiful job of capturing the day. I'm impressed that you did all of this without an assistant!

      Thank you Teresa. I usually have a second photographer/assistant but Melissa and Tim wanted their day to be low key so I flew solo this time. They made it very easy for me to do my job as they are very easy going and mellow people. :)

  • Kelly, You captured the tranquility of this day in your images. I've had the pleasure of watching these two fall in love and create a beautiful family. All of that came through in your images. Well done.
