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.

Dear World, Say Hello to My Son

Warning: this post is sappy… I can’t help it…
There are few events in a man’s life that can move him to tears just by thinking of them:

  • The day he got his first car
  • The moment his wife agreed to marry him
  • The day he said I do
  • The day his grandmother passed away
  • The day his child was born

On 8/28 I had the pleasure of being witness to the birth of my son and I am forever changed. The strength that my wife has is immeasurable and our love has deepened over the experience of creating a new life and we’re blessed to be able to go through this wonderful journey. A post wouldn’t be a post without photos so here are a few to commemorate the event.
