I probably enjoy designing albums as much as I love taking photos. It all goes back to story telling… and what better way to tell a story than in a clean, simple, and elegantly laid-out custom album?
Here is Susan and Matt’s engagement album. It’s a 20-page 5″x7″ (horizontal) flush mount album with a custom fabric cover; the actual photos are traditional photographic prints (C-prints) that are flush-mounted onto rigid pages.
And because all of the materials that go into it are of archival quality, this little album may very well become a family heirloom to be cherished and passed on to generations to come.
What can I say about the Parker / Bowman’s? You guys rock my world. If a pack of wild dogs ate my family as a kid and I was left as orphan, I would have so wanted you to adopt me. Come to think of it, I still want you to adopt me…
It was such a pleasure working with Jennifer (can I call you mom?) and her family, and I’m so honored that they chose me to capture the spirit of their close-knit family.
While I’m waiting for the adoption papers to go through, I thought I’d show some photos from The Parker / Bowman’s family photo shoot downtown Austin. Enjoy!

I met up with Susan and Matt down on South Congress one fine crisp cool autumn morning not too long ago to shoot their engagement photos. It’s always funny when I first start shooting, because more than likely my subjects are a tad nervous. And I like to tell them that I’m a tad nervous too (because I usually am), and that it’ll wear off soon. Well, let’s just say it didn’t take long for these two to unleash the fire.
Without further ado, here’s Susan and Matt:
Thanks for the good times Susan and Matt! I can’t wait to shoot your wedding next May!

James Dvorscak is a fine wedding and portrait photographer based in Austin, TX.
I first met Stacey and Nigel on the morning of their engagement session, and after fifteen minutes, I felt like we were all old friends. They are freaking awesome. Fun to photograph, and pretty much down for whatever sillyness I threw at them (which is always a plus!).
Thanks for the good times, y’all. Can’t wait to shoot the gorgeousness that will be your wedding this fall!
If I could use only one word to sum up Mindy and Taylor, it would be chemistry. Wow. If I could distill just a little bit of that chemistry, bottle it, and distribute it to those that need it, the world would be a much better place. And I’d be filthy stinking rich.
These two met at a karaoke bar outing (with mutual friends). And after hanging out with them for an hour or two, it was apparent to me how this totally fits their personalities. What an awesome couple! They were pretty much down for whatever I threw at them, including waking up at the crack of dawn on a weekend (mental note: standing in the middle of South Congress is generally not such a good idea).
Did I mention they’re getting married in Cape Cod this fall? How gorgeous is that going to be?
Congrats, y’all! And thanks for the good times!
