A while back I received top secret information that Marc Ford, Elijah Ford, and their bands were going to be playing at the Sahara Lounge, and after being given permission to photograph the show, I did just that! It was great getting to meet everyone, including the great Ian McLagan who came to say hello to his good friend, Marc. He even sat in for a song which was an extra special treat. It was really great to experience the excitement of this warm-up show and then the ease and comfort of the final show on the tour at Threadgill’s. You can view those photos here.

My website is about to become overwhelmed (in the very best way, of course!) with wedding photos, but before I do that, I want to share with you some fun shots of a great show I photographed the other night. The evening started out with Kelley Mickwee serenading us and moved on to Elijah Ford and then Marc Ford. This evening at Threadgill’s wrapped up a seven-week, 12-million-mile tour which also started in Austin at The Sahara Lounge (you can see my photos from that show here).

You can listen to Marc’s album HERE on itunes (my favorite song from the album is In You).

I hope you all enjoy these photos as much as I enjoyed taking them, and if you’d like to know more about me, my photography, or my availability for live shows, portraits, or weddings, please contact me using the CONTACT button above.

According to the dictionary, the word serendipity is luck that takes the form of finding valuable or pleasant things that are not looked for, and I think this photo shoot was quite serendipitous. Their original engagement photographer cancelled on them moments before their shoot was to begin, so a mutual friend of ours recommended me. After a couple reschedules due to rain, we were able to get the canoe onto (or is it into?) Lady Bird Lake. These two are beautiful, kind, and funny. I’m so glad that I had the opportunity to meet Fernando & Rachel and capture their engagement photos for them. Much love, you two!
