15 May, 2019 TARYN + JENNA // AUSTIN, TX
We were first introduced to a Steph’s work by a friend, years before we got engaged. From the moment we first saw her photos we knew there wasn’t anyone else we would want to tell our story. Even though we weren’t engaged at the time, we followed her on social media and kept her in the back of our minds, just in case. Not only is her work STUNNING (hello have you seen the amazingness), she is also an inspirational equality advocate and all around wonderful human being. It was also so important to us to have someone we connected with, and after following (T: okay, maybe low key stalking) her on social media for a couple years, we felt like she was meant to be in our lives. We booked Steph ridiculously far in advance (before we chose anything about our wedding) and didn’t even actually meet her in person – pretty sure Snap Chat convos don’t count – until she came to Austin for our engagement photos, over a year later! If it seems like she doesn’t know a stranger, that’s 100% true, and we feel so lucky to have shared such an important and exciting time in our lives with her. And hopefully she takes our not at all subtle hints and moves to Austin, so she can have a full time dog sitter for Chewy and eat Tacodeli with us all the time.
