Best of 2010 - Austin Wedding Photographer by Melanie Grizzel

Austin Wedding Photographer

It amazes me every year that passes, quicker and quicker now.

Then I get to take a look back and see where we have been... and where we are going.

This year we got to work on a few editorial projects, namely People Magazine for a story about a young father who almost lost his son forever, and the New York Times for a story about a man who reenlisted in the Navy after the military's "Don't Ask Don't Tell" policy was over turned. The world is changing and I am excited that I get to capture those moments.

We also got to work with Door Number 3 on a campaign for Highland Lakes, travel and tourism. Three grueling hot days in August is like summer camp for creatives. Way too much fun! They call this a job!?

This year we also had the privilege of photographing many wonderful couples on their most special day. For that we were both humbled and honored. Thank you.

As an artist it is difficult to turn a critical eye on yourself. I poured through images from the entire year to try to find just the right images for this post and I realized at the last minute that the key should be, which images speak to me. These images may not be the best representation of what She-N-He is capable of or even known for, but they happen to be my personal favorites from this year. I hope you like them. For giggles, let me know which you like the most. Leave a comment with your favs.

Here are a few of my personal favorites from these 2011 freshmen.

9.22.10 Lara Senior - Senior Photos Austin by Melanie Grizzel

Senior Photo AustinLara is a Senior in Round Rock. She's not sure what she wants to do for a career in her life yet, and feels quite a bit of pressure about this.

She is taking advanced credit classes at ACC already.

She is a Varsity Cheerleader.

She's cute and funny.

And she's hoping for a place on the Homecoming Court in a few weeks.

Thanks for looking.

1.13.10 Gracie Donley:Senior by Melanie Grizzel

I met Gracie last week at Mayfield Park just before she head back to school for the 2nd 1/2 of her last year of high school. Very exciting time in anyones life. She is no exception. She has an impressive list of school she's applying too most I'd never heard of, but Michigan State was on there for it's similarities to UT but that it's a new place to explore. I'm excited for her and her future.
Good Luck to you in your future. Can't wait to hear what your do in life.

6-7-09 Christina + Matt Engagement by Melanie Grizzel

I shot Christina and Matt's Engagement session @ Mayfield Park in Austin, Tx on Sunday. 

It was really funny, in my old life I was used to never meeting my subjects before I shot them but now working in this industry I almost always meet my clients first.
Not these 2, they found me online and were so excited after our chat on the phone they booked me right from the phone call, Sunday was our first face to face. I couldn't be happier, what a pleasure these guys are, so bubbly and happy. 
They met as camp counselors (really) a little over 4 years ago. They spent some time in different states for college. I heard a great story about an airline ticket give-a-way from Wendy's having to do with saved cups, ask them about it, it's pretty sweet. They are MADLY in love and they really have a great time together always cutting up and making the other feel at ease. LOVE THEM. Their wedding is coming up in the fall, I'm excited.
As always there are way more pictures than will fit on the blog so join us on facebook to view the rest. become a fan on facebook at she-n-he photography and design.
We also photographed Toi and Richard's wedding on Saturday @ Green Pastures in Austin. I am working on a collection from the wedding all day today, hopefully I can get those babies blogged by tonight.
