Tonya is my cousin on my dad’s side. I remember when she was just a little thing running around. It really makes me feel old when I think about her getting married. But I’m so incredibly happy for her and Ernesto. I had never met him until we did this session, but I’ve seen plenty of pictures of him on Facebook over the years (6+ years they’ve actually been dating). He is such a sweet guy and I could see their love and deep connection as we shot their session. They live in Austin, TX so this was a perfect little weekend getaway for me. No husband, no kid, just me and some time with family, and exploring a little bit of what Texas has to offer. Tonya & Ernesto are saying “I do” in July, and I’m super bummed I can’t be there to capture their day, but I have a perfectly good excuse….I’m having a baby! That’s right, Baby Woodruff #2 is due June 22, 2017. Since their wedding is about 2 weeks after my due date, I knew it wasn’t going to be a possibility to fly so soon after and spend the whole day working when all I will really want to do is cuddle my newborn. Nevertheless, we had a great time in Downtown Austin and I love the way these images turned out. Tonya & Ernesto, you guys look like models and made it all super easy for me. I know you will both look fabulous on your wedding day, and I wish you so much joy and love as you become Mr. & Mrs!
