"Old School Mondays"

So, I just thought of this fun idea: each Monday, I’m going to post some really old pictures from weddings that I shot long before I had a blog and I’m even going to try to go back and pick ones that are not on my website or anywhere else!

AND to make it even more fun, let’s make a contest out of it – yay! Okay, so each week I will post some “Old School” pictures and whoever can tell me the name of the bride and/or groom in the pictures gets an AWESOME prize! No, I’m not talking about a travel chess board – I’m talking about something really, really great and super valuable – but I can’t tell you what it is until the first person wins the prize!

I know what you’re thinking: “How am I going to figure out who the bride & groom are?!” Great question! I encourage you to get really creative – mass email all of your friends and family and see if they recognize them. Heck, mass email your whole building at work! We’re talking about 6 degrees of Kevin Bacon here and somebody will probably know either the bride or groom. Just tell them that you’re going to win a billion dollars if they help you. ๐Ÿ™‚ (no, that’s not the prize)

So, in honor of the very first “Old School Monday”, here’s a few pictures from a couple I absolutely LOVED working with! They had a lovely wedding at Mercury Hall in Austin and there were lots of handsome military men running around, which always makes for fun pictures! Good luck – you have until next Monday to complete your mission. You can send your answers to stacy@stacycross.com OR post them in the comments with your email address, so I can get in touch with you.

Angel’s Maternity Session

My neighbor Angel is expecting her new baby VERY soon and I thought it would be great to give her a fun maternity session to celebrate her new arrival! Angel is such a sweetie and we had such a great time together – we laughed the whole way through! We were able to capture some really amazing, dramatic shots, but also some really sweet ones. A lot of times, the pictures from maternity sessions can be very intimate and personal, which is why I don’t normally share them, but I also like to get quite a few shots that these moms feel comfortable showing to their families and friends. Angel was so great because she gave me the time I needed to be sure we had plenty of both kinds of pictures!

And one with texture because I’ve been playing lately and I like it! Stan says that it “makes the picture look dirty”. ๐Ÿ™‚ Well, it makes me happy and it’s just for fun – let me know what you think.

Bill & Kathryn’s Wedding

Today Stan and I went out to Mayfield Park to take pictures for Bill and Kathryn’s wedding. It was the first time I had met these two and they were such a beautiful, wonderful couple. You can ask Stan – I was smiling the whole way home as I talked about what a sweet couple I think they are! The weather was questionable all day, but during their ceremony, it was perfect! We got lots of incredible pics of these two and their family and friends in the short time we had with them. We were only there for the ceremony, so we decided to make it count by getting a ton of great pictures of Bill and Kathryn together. ๐Ÿ™‚

*Update* For those of you who are friends/family of Bill and Kathryn and would like to see their wedding pictures, you can go *HERE* to get to their viewing and ordering site. The password is their new married last name in all lower-case letters! ๐Ÿ™‚

The beautiful and fun Kathryn
