Austin has become a super popular city for bachelorette parties, and I totally understand why! A fun downtown, the river, great food… Austin is kinda awesome.

Micro Wedding at Josephine House | Chanel & Jonathan

Filed in : For Photographers, Wedding

I wish we could show these photos to 7th grade friends Chanel & Jonathan. It would probably blow their minds. 🤯 The Jelinek wedding! THIS is exactly why I loooooove small weddings.
