Church weddings in austin

by Eric Hegwer on 8 December, 2010

Are you planning a catholic ceremony? Worried about having dark wedding pictures? Don’t be.  A few weeks ago I had the honor of working with Jenny at Serve Events, and my good friends at Visual Lyrics (a great Austin wedding florist).

The wedding ceremony was held at St. Austin’s Church right next to UT, and if you have ever been to a catholic wedding, you know that the ceremony comes first, and the photos come second.  But that doesn’t mean that there aren’t some great opportunities for incredible wedding pictures.  Sure it’s dark, and you can’t use a flash.  Yes, you might be restricted where you can stand and walk during the ceremony.  OK  no problem.  Over the years, my team and I have photographed dozens and dozens of church weddings all over Austin, and we know how to get the job done.

Here are some of my favorite photos from the wedding, and a few from the reception at the Philips event center.  There was even a Mariachi Band!
