My Passion & My Work

Hey there and welcome to the Blueye Photography blog. My name is Troy and I'm a wedding and portrait photographer located in Austin Texas. I love making photos that are real... real moments, real smiles, real love. I'm not sure that I can put my photography style into a single category, but you can be sure that I'm looking for the best light and the most creative angles I can.

In my blog you'll find everything from sneak peeks of client sessions to personal information. My life is (almost) an open book and I like to share as much as I can. Most entries will include photos... this is a photographers blog after all. I also love feedback about my photography/posts/website/life so please comment as much as you like. I read them all and try to respond to each and every one.

After you've read through some posts and gotten to know a bit about me feel free to check out my portfolio site using the portfolio link above. The blog is updated more frequently than my site, but you won't want to miss checking out my portfolio either.

Thanks for stopping by.

Happy Birthday to Me…

I’m 30.  Yup, 30 years young.  Although everyone else around me is referring to it as “old”, I’ve chosen to believe I’m still young.  I can’t be old… I don’t have kids yet :).

Anyway, I had a great suprise party last night (my wife is awesome!) and today she took me to Ruth’s Chris Steakhouse for an excellent birthday dinner.  So now I’m happy, stuffed, and tired, but still feeling pretty young.

Wedding Photo of the Year

Talk about a way to start your day. I’m a moderator at and we’ve been running a photo of the year competition for the past month and I found out this morning that one of my photos was voted wedding photo of the year. I’m completely overjoyed! I LOVE this photo and am so happy that everyone else loves this photo too. There were 13 category winners and now we face off for overall photo of the year. Wish me luck.

Visit the forum to see the great community that has been built over the past 2 years (and no you don’t have to live in Texas to become a member).

Announcing the Buzz

Most people call it a blog, but I’m going to be different (kind of my style anyway). Welcome to the Buzz.  What’s the buzz, you ask?  This is the area of my site where I can share what’s going on with my business, feature the latest clients I’ve shot with, and generate a buzz for my work.  Stop by often and see what’s going on at Blueye Photography.
