I had a few minutes before the bride and groom arrived for the formals / bridals/ groomals session at the Zilker Botanical Gardens in Austin Texas a couple weeks ago, so I made sure to stop and smell the flowers!
Now I am not really one for landscape photography. As a general rule when I see a gorgeous sunset, or a majestic mountain peak, or a colorful bed of flowers, I say to myself "OH that's beautiful. Now I just need a person there so I can take a photo." When I take a photo, it's usually not complete unless there is someone in the picture as well.
That being said, the Zilker Botanical Gardens was a special place for me when I was growing up in Austin, and I went there all the time to think. It's one of the iconic places in Austin, and if you happen to be visiting, you should not miss it. More photos to come from Texas, as I make progress on Katherine and Matt's wedding, and as I finish up an engagement session I ended up doing for an old friend and his beautiful fiancee.
