I was lucky enough to have the opportunity to travel down to Austin, Texas two weekends ago to do this pretty lady’s engagement photos. Heather happens to be my favorite sister-in-law-who-just-got-engaged and she and her guy Jason decided that they would have me down for a visit. Of course Stella got to make the trip too, lucky girl.
Funny story: As I was going through security I said to the TSA guy, “I’ve got a big camera in that bag, do I need to take it out?” He said, “Yah, you’ll have to take it out because you can’t take it with you.” We argued back and forth for a few minutes. . . “What do you mean? You’re kidding, right?” “No, miss I’m not kidding. You can’t take it on the airplane, you’ll have to put it in the garbage can over there if you want to continue through security.” Etc. Back and forth, back and forth. Then he finally said, very loudly and in a most annoyed type of voice, “NO MA’AM YOU CAN NOT TAKE A HAMMER ON THE AIRPLANE!” I said in an equally annoyed voice “CAM. ERR. UH. I have a CAMERA in my bag. WHY would a girl like me have a HAMMER?” Then he told me about the 96 year-old woman who had a chain-saw in her carry-on.
Back to the real story. . . Heather, Jason and I trooped all over Austin trying to get some local flava’ in their pictures. Jason took us up to the UT campus where he showed me how to make a longhorn with my hands and he and Heather joined together in a gripping rendition of the Longhorns fight song. Thanks for that Jason. Anyway, we had a blast and I am so excited that Jason will be a part of the Tucker fam now.
Thanks again for having me down guys! I hope you like what we got.
And a word of warning- this post is extra long because we shot the equivalent of 3 normal sessions over the course of the weekend!
