Weddings at the Hummingbird House – Fall

by Eric Hegwer on 4 January, 2012

She knew exactly what she wanted.  We didn’t even really have an interview, really.  Well we sort of did.  I honestly think she was going to have a friend take photos for her.  You see, I had a booth at one of the Hummingbird House’s open house showcase.  And she came with her family to check out the place only a few weeks before the wedding to make some final arrangements.  I had my albums open on my table, and, well the rest is history.

All the decorations were done by her, and her friends – the succulent table flowers, the cute cards at the sign in table for guests to leave their wishes, and this uber cool yellow couch.  Every wedding should have a couch.

Plus, her wedding was at the beginning of October – the gardens were beautiful, and green, and since the Hummingbird house has a huge built-in tent nobody was worried about a rain plan – even though the skies were clear Texas blue.

So many great moments happened throughout the day – but the peak was during the ceremony, when the vows recited by the couple made everybody cry.

Fall Engagement Pictures

by Eric Hegwer on 2 January, 2012

The idea started out as a surprise. J’s mom called me and wanted to get them an engagement session. I loved some of the ideas she had, but the one about surprising them gave me pause. For pictures this important I like to work with the couple to figure out so many things: what to wear for engagement pictures, what settings do the couple love, and a few other secret tips I share over the phone.

Eventually we settled on a spot near Barton Springs. We picked a time in the late morning when the light was just perfect, and there weren’t too many joggers cluttering up the path.

It wasn’t hard to get these two to pose – you could tell they were into each other from the first frame. Sometimes I have to give a little more coaching but not J & M. We just wandered up and down the path, and whenever we saw something interesting we would stop and take a photo: On the bridge, in a field, near the water, by a fence.

Each of the backdrops was better than the previous, and with each stop they became more comfortable with the camera.

One more little tidbit – they are both engineers. Can you believe it?
