Since it’s getting really hot Texas, I thought it’d be a good time to show a bridal that I photographed with another amazing and  very talented Austin wedding photographer and photojournalist Pam Hults for her client, Megan in early March this year at the Four Seasons or Shoreline Grill grounds in Austin, Texas.   We have been talking about doing a joint bridal session with two primary photographers for some time and decided to try out the concept together.   Both of us are in a group of referral photographers for weddings since we photograph with similar styles of documentary wedding photography.

As a primary photographer, you’re tasked with providing your client a certain set of images and of course, the pressure is on.  For bridal portraits, this meant a significant amount of time is used to do the traditional and classic set of imagery.   While, if there were two primary photographers, one can be tasked to do the standard set of images, and the other person can simply be as creative as he or she wants.  We thought it’d be a good thing to try out and here are the results from what I photographed.   Pam’s beautiful bridal session for her client can be seen here.

I think it’s really neat that both of us photographed the same scene as you can tell from her session and mine, and we get different images.  Particularly the swan photo and the one with the Congress bridge as a framing background.  I think this adds a lot of value to the session to have two main photographers shooting the same session.  Who knows, we might offer it as a new bridal session at some point in the future!

By the way, please don’t try to do this bridal session at this location in the middle of the summer 🙂  (or anywhere outdoors, really).  You will melt in 100F heat.   I think it was a cool, 85F degrees weather in March.   You want to be relaxed for your bridal session and in the summer it meant cooling off in an indoor location and not outdoors for as much as you can.

Her client showed up in an incredible Vera Wang dress:
