The Austin Graffiti Park - Austin, TX

What remains of an apartment building torn down in the 1980’s due to an unstable support system is a playground for graffiti artists to create works of art that—true to the form of street art—is ephemeral.

Murals and messages are layered upon each other changing the face of the concrete facades week after week. Don’t get too attached to any one piece of art.

Take a picture. It lasts longer.

Gabriela & Clay - Austin, TX 

I had the honor of photographing my beautiful cousin’s outdoor wedding a few weeks ago (escaping the Polar Vortex for a weekend!)

So happy for this brilliant couple (they’ll both soon have “Dr.” precede their names) to have found one another and share the rest of their lives together in laughter and board games
