We were anticipating this wedding for such a long time. When we met Karly and Teal over Skype last fall, we instantly fell in love with their story. It is the kind of story that only takes place in Hollywood. These two met right before Teal left for the Peace Corps for 2 years. Instantly they knew there was something special between them, but Karly didn’t want to get hurt, knowing he was going to be in Africa for the next two years. So, naturally they spent a great deal of time together before he left, falling madly in love. Teal even admitted to proposing before he left, but Karly turned him down, saying I’ll marry you when you get back. Through heartache and tears, Teal left for Africa. While away, Teal was told that his heart was not there, he had left his heart in Texas. Five weeks later he arrived back in Austin to surprise Karly and stay for good.

There were so many things about their wedding day that made the day so personal to them. That Saturday in April was choses specifically to coincide with Karly’s parents’ wedding anniversary. The minister who married them also married Karly’s parents. Their vows took place under a gorgeous tree on Karly’s parent’s farm and they danced the night away under the stars.

These two have the kind of love that is so right, so beautiful and contagious. During the first moments of seeing each other on their wedding day there was not a dry eye…on either side of our cameras. Karly and Teal, it was amazing documenting your wedding day. Thank you for inspiring us! You two are incredible and it was an honor to tell the story of your relationship through our lenses. Thank you for sharing it with us!

We are coming to you live from the airport en route to Austin to tell another love story this fine early Wednesday morning. Even with sleep in our eyes and our hands glued to our coffee cups, we are excited for the adventure ahead. In the meantime, we thought it only right to leave you with these images of  Amanda and John who so openly invited us into their home for the first portion of their engagement session.  After good days or bad, home is where all the walls are let down and we can truly be ourselves.  There was an incredible intimacy created and we were able to capture just a glimpse of their lives. We loved every minute of hanging out with these two.
