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.

Booked for 10/06/2007

Today I met with Rayna and Michael to talk about their October, 6th wedding and I’m happy to announce that they booked with me :). We’ll be doing either a bridal shoot or an E-Session between now and then so be on the lookout for some photos. I’m totally looking forward to hanging out with them and shooting their photos. We really hit it off and they are easy going and a lot of fun. They’ll be getting married at the fabulous Lakeway Resort and Spa surrounded by a group of their closest friends and family. It will be a day to remember. I’m really looking forward to it.

Susie’s Slideshow

I love slideshows and luckily so do my clients. Susie asked me if I could put a slideshow together of the photos from her maternity shoot and there’s no way I could, or would, say no :).

Here you go Susie… enjoy the show.

Susie’s Maternity

Talk about a fun afternoon. I was invited over to Susie and Broc’s beautiful home for a maternity and family photo session. Susie is pregnant with TWINS… little girls who will be named Cadence and Jolie… who could be born any day now. Susie was a real trooper throughout the session and was all smiles the entire time (Broc did well too). We were joined by their 1 year old daughter, Ashton, who has an amazing smile and loves to laugh along with mommy and daddy. Thanks guys for the opportunity to photography your family. Here’s a sample of the fun we had.

Trash the Dress?

An interesting trend is brewing in the wedding photography industry. Traditionally, after the wedding is over, brides have their dresses cleaned and then boxed up for preservation… some do it for themselves, some do it for the daughter they hope to one day hand the dress down to, others do it because they don’t know what else to do with it. But recently there have been a small group of brides who don their dresses one last time for the sole purpose of making some memorable and magical photos… all the while trashing their dress. I love the idea, but I don’t know how many of my clients would go for it.

You can read more about it in the NY Times article.

If you’re interested in setting up a trash the dress session please visit my website and submit the contact form. I’d love to hear from you.
