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.

The Savitsky Family

There are few sounds in the world as pleasant to hear than the sound of a baby laughing… and boy did we here a lot of that yesterday during the Savitsky family photo session. Baby Ian was a dream to work with and entertained us (and himself) the entire time we were there. He was smiling and laughing through the whole session and we got so many great photos of this awesome family. Thanks for having us out and enjoy the sneak peek guys!

love, Love, LOVE this one

Family Session: The Obuchowskis

For the past few years I’ve been invited out to Katy and Ed’s house to photograph their awesome family… and each year their family grows.  This year was no exception as they welcomed their newest member, MJ, to the family in October. As an added bonus I got to meet Ed’s parents and catch up with his brother (we used to work together a few years ago).  Good times :)

I love that Sam knows how to throw up the Horns.

Brian + Jeni: eSession

Yesterday morning Melanie and I met up with Brian and Jeni for their engagement session and we had a great time with them. We decided to shoot early in the morning to avoid the heat and knocked out the session in short order and had plenty of time to run to Rudy’s for breakfast tacos :). We had to change up our original plans of shooting downtown since the ROT Rally was in town the night before, but we still made some great photos. Mother nature even obliged by burning off the early morning clouds so we could have some brilliant sunshine. I am so jazzed to be shooting their wedding at the Lakeway Resort next month. Anyway, enough with the words. Enjoy the photos.

Steph, Dave, and Alexandra

Happy Memorial Day everyone! I was on the fence about doing a regular miscellaneous Monday post or posting a sneak peek from Steph and Dave’s Saturday family session and, well, I just couldn’t wait another day to share these photos. Steph and Dave are wonderful friends of ours and I was very honored to do a session with them and their precious daughter Alexandra (I call her AJ). AJ is about as cute as they come and she gave us about 30 minutes of happiness before she had a meltdown and fell asleep, but that was all I needed (we worked quickly). Enjoy the photos.

For you photographers reading this the lighting was 80% window light (camera left) and 20% AB400 on it’s lowest setting with a softbox (camera right). I probably could have gotten away with using just window light, but wanted to fill in the shadows a bit. I love north facing windows!
