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.

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

In all of my traveling over the past 2 weeks I neglected to make a Christmas post on the 25th (oops!). Here’s a make-up post to cover Christmas and New Year.

I hope that you and your family had a wonderful Christmas full of warmth, love, and surprises and that you found some time to just lay back and look at the lights. Best wishes that 2010 proves to be even better than 2009 for you and yours!

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays

To all my wonderful clients and friends:
This time of year is always a great time. Seeing family and friends who have missed you for months and catching up with everything not going on on Facebook. It’s a time of joy and thankfulness for all the blessings that have been shared with us and a time for us to relax (ha!) and just spend time with the people that mean the most to us. Melanie and I will be spending the next week surrounded by family and friends soaking in everything that’s happened since our last trip and afterwords we’ll need a little vacation (see the timestamp on this entry? yes I am up that early… this is just the beginning). As much as we joke about needing a vacation after our vacation it truly is a blessing to be able to travel and spend time with family. We hope that you find yourself surrounded by loved ones in the coming weeks and that you truly have a wonderful Christmas and a happy New Year!

Blueye Photography will be closed from now until 1/5. If you send an email to us or call during this time we will respond in the new year.

It’s Christmastime!

This past weekend I spent two days putting the lights up on the front of our house. I love decorating for the holidays, but this was a pain in the butt to do. I don’t know why I wanted to line the driveway and yard with lights, but I may have to rethink that next year. I think it looks great, but the stakes that I used to hold the lights down weren’t easy to drive into the ground. Anyway, thought I’d share a few photos of what it looks like.
