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.

Oh how the years have flown by. My Mom told me I was born during a blizzard… fittingly Lancaster is getting snow today and we just had ice in Austin. I snagged these photos from our wedding DVD (we had the videographer put a slideshow at the beginning of the disk of photos we gave him).

My parents look so young… and I look so innocent :-)

It’s my birthday! (Miscellaneous Monday #7)

Just thought I’d post a quick note before Melanie and I head out to dinner. Today’s my birthday and I’m 31. In honor of that fact I’ll be back later to edit this post and add list of 31 things that I love about my life and am happy about (because birthday’s are happy right?).

So I’m back and here’s my list of 31 big (and small) things that I love about my life and am thankful for (in no particular order):

1.  Living in Austin
2. Owning our own house
3. Our obedient and loving dog, Bella
4. My supportive family back in PA
5. My amazing wife, Melanie
6. My health (sure I could lose a few pounds, but I’m not sick)
7. Calling myself a Texan (albeit a non-native)
8. Being able to use the internet to my advantage
9. Actually being on track to becoming debt free
10. Knowing enough about the stock exchange to invest a bit
