Keep Austin Wed

Afternoon. Amy here. I won’t say a whole lot today because I am anxious to share this engagement shoot with you.

Laren & Courtney
Laren and Courtney are dear friends of mine whose wedding I had the privilege to attend last fall. I met Laren in 2008 when the non-profit he founded, Invisible Children, hired me. He soon after introduced me to his then-girlfriend Courtney, and I was sold on the pair. Over the past few years, it has been a joy to share life together and I count myself fortunate to know these two.

Esther Havens is a humanitarian documentary photographer, whom Laren and Courtney met through her work with Invisible Children. While this gig differed from her usual clientele, she hit the nail on the head. I appreciate how she captured the couple’s individuality in her photos. Courtney is a Lone Star native (by way of Austin) and the backdrop of city landmarks is pitch perfect. Laren works as a documentary filmmaker – watch for the vintage camera. Oh, and the two are unmistakably gorgeous. Dig it.

    The green dress is actually a romper from BCBG, and the floral dress is from Urban Outfitters. Both pieces were purchased a few seasons ago, so Courtney mentioned browsing Free People for similar outfits.
