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.

Krista + Jimmy: the wedding

The day started with a downpour and everyone was nervous about how the rest of the day would play out, but nothing would keep Krista and Jimmy from enjoying their day. I don’t think I’ve ever photographed a more relaxed couple on their wedding day and Mother Nature, while raining down early in the day, cleared things up for us and we had a beautiful ceremony and a serious party afterwards. Congratulations guys! Enjoy this sneak peek.

Big thanks to my friend Dave for coming out and shooting with me.

Venue: Lakeway Resort and Spa
Cakes: Simon Lee Bakery
Decorations: Kennedy Creative
DJ: Capital Disc Jockeys
Flowers: Bouquets of Austin
Lighting: Ilios

Krista’s Bridals

Krista and Jimmy tied the knot this past Saturday (photos of their wedding will be posted in a few days) which means I’m finally able to post a few photos from Krista’s bridal session. We shot her session at the beautiful Laguna Gloria. If you get the chance to visit the grounds I highly recommend you do. The location is gorgeous.

Enough about the venue… check out the photos!

New car

A couple of posts back I let y’all know that I was looking for a new car and about a week ago I picked it up… a 2009 Toyota Venza. I was able to negotiate a decent deal with the local dealership and so far I’m very happy. The car has plenty of features, lots of space, a great engine, and stylin’ 20 inch wheels. The color I got is called Sunset Bronze Mica… which I love… it looks more brown when it’s cloudy outside and more bronze when it’s sunny.
