Cook & Butt Wedding; One Year Ago, Today!

Most of all, I remember... Howard and I were an unlikely couple to begin with and we found each other at the most unlikely time in our lives. On paper, we did not make sense at all. But our friendship, our connection, and our love for one another was so extraordinary that it could not be broken. We fought a lot of forces together and also on our own. But every step of the way we made the right decisions for ourselves personally and we always did "the right thing". In the end, and to our surprise, we ended up together. In my life I have read about love like this, but did not believe that it really existed. I was way too independent and strong to even want it. It is a scary feeling, but Howard is the best friend I have ever known or could ever hope for. Howard has shown me what unconditional love feels like. Howard has made my life extraordinary and I don't want to live a day without him in this world.

Looking back a year later, there are three memories that stand out in my mind from our wedding weekend. First are the speeches at the rehearsal dinner. They were so intimate and personal. Every speech given brought tears to Howard and I. It was a very emotional night for us. The second is when my daughter, Audrey, grabbed my hand during the ceremony. The last is looking up at Howard during the ceremony and realizing how hard we had worked together to get to this moment. Our story, our love, is truly a fairy tale.




Most of all, I remember... As Jon and I sat in traffic on the way home from Dallas, we decided we would take our usual Green Belt weekend picnic/hike once we got back to Austin to let Bonnie, our dog, stretch her legs. I tried to talk Jon into going to a friends house for a cook out, but he unassumingly convinced me into the hike.  We dropped our things off, got the picnic basket ready, and jumped in the truck.

Jon led the way through the Green Belt hiking trails.  We eventually landed at the beautiful look out point we went to on our third date back in March 2012.  We spent hours there that day quizzing each other, trying to learn more about each other.  It was the perfect place for Jon to propose.

I sat down as Jon tied Bonnie to a tree.  As I was enjoying hummus and a glass of wine, Jon sat down next to me.  He looked at me, and asked, "What would you do if someday was today?" I chuckled and said, "I would probably die." I didn't believe that "someday" was going to be that day.  "Someday" was a running joke with us referring to the day we would get engaged.

Jon took my hand and asked me to move away from the cliff face we had our feet dangling over.  Jon got down on one knee, and from that point on, I can only remember repeating the word "YES".



Being given away...

There are many, but this is one of my favorite moments  between Jenniann, her mom, and her Dad from her incredible wedding last May.



Counting Down to Claire & Clint's Wedding

It's rare to have something as magical as a rainbow appear during an engagement shoot, so the rainbow that peeked out for a bit during Claire Jones and Clint Black's session was a total treat. We are thrilled to be counting down to their upcoming wedding!


Most of all, I remember...
Clint and I had flown up together for the 4th of July to Beaver Creek, Colorado. Clint had told me prior to the trip that he was only going to be able to stay for the holiday and that he had to fly back home early for work.  I was really disappointed that we weren’t going to be able to spend the entire weekend together, but I understood.

Little did I know everything Clint had planned out to surprise me! He pretended to leave early from Colorado. He even had a fake itinerary for his flight back to Texas. However, when the cab came to take him to the airport to return home, it didn’t take him to the airport – it took him down the road to a hotel where his parents and brother were waiting in secret. He also had my best friend there, so that she could experience the weekend with me.

During the day, while I was sad thinking Clint had returned back to Texas, he was setting up a gazebo in the park with flowers and photographer. My entire family knew what was going on. I went into town with my sister and she brought me back through the park. Clint was waiting there with his back turned, but as soon as I realized who it was, I ran towards him! He proposed to me right then and I could hear my family cheering from the balcony of our house nearby.

We went back and I was completely surprised to see Clint’s family and my best friend were also there to celebrate. We all had dinner together that night and enjoyed the rest of the holiday weekend together. I was 100% surprised and I still can’t believe he pulled it all off!



Farmer & Reckling

Most of all, I remember... I am not sure if there is one specific moment that made me realize that I wanted to marry Matthew. I am not a girl that always had boyfriends or wanted one, I was fine on my own. But then Matthew and I went on a blind date and things changed. I knew he was special when he blessed the meal on our first date, when he would stay up to the wee hours of the night talking to me, (the night owl), and when we were so quickly able to say I love you. He is the most selfless and caring man, how could I not want to marry him?!

We are both so thankful for everyone who was there to celebrate with us and witness us make a commitment to God and each other! It was a perfect weekend full of family friends and love!

My Family. Your Family.

Most of all, I remember... "What a difference two years can make! Today as I watched our two children open their Valentine's Day gifts with total abandon, it hit me how different our lives have become since adopting our 2 sweet kids--who were four-years-old at the time--in February of 2012. I went from being half of a couple with a thriving, grown stepdaughter in college in the NE, to being a busy, busy mom of two pre-schoolers--suddenly making lunches, chauferring, supervising, reading stories, playing, helping, soothing, and all the rest of the joy and challenge that goes with parenthood. As our family has grown, so has my interest in and love of making family portraits. I realize in a much more personal way the power that these images have, and how quickly our kids grow and change right before our eyes.

With that in mind, I'm very excited to be able to offer family portraits in addition to wedding photography! Today is the launch of my new portrait company, www.familybyjenniferlindberg.com. All of our family sessions are now shot in medium format film, and we do quite a bit of work and planning before each session to make sure it is a total success for you and your family. After the session is over, I come to your home for a fun presentation and ordering meeting, where I get to unveil your images and assist you in choosing your favorites.

Thank you all for your support and encouragement over all of these years. And a big thank you to my wonderful clients and friends who have allowed me to include their portraits in my portfolio!"



McGuyer & Hutson - Part 2

Most of all, I remember... Looking back on our wedding day there are so many wonderful memories that will always stay with us. However, I especially remember our marriage ceremony. Looking into Scott’s eyes as we said our vows to each other, before our guests and before the Lord, it was such a surreal and wonderful moment. The weather we enjoyed on our wedding day, will also always be remembered. It was such a beautiful day and we were so blessed to have such gorgeous weather! When we were announced Mr. and Mrs. Hutson upon the arriving to our reception was also so wonderful. I loved hearing my new name and that will always be a great memory! Finally, I know we will both always remember dancing the night away with each other, our closest friends and family.



McGuyer & Hutson - Part 1

Most of all, I remember... "I knew I wanted to marry Brooke from the very beginning. Her beauty and amazing smile immediately stood out, and it didn't take long to discover that she is also classy, fun, talented, has a heart of gold, and is my best friend. This was the girl I had waited my whole life for."

"After dating for several months, Scott and I became best friends and fell in love. He is a wonderful person inside and out, and I continue to thank God for bringing him into my life! I have always known I wanted to marry Scott because I couldn't imagine spending the rest of my life without him.

Scott proposed to me one Sunday, after I had been away with my girl friends. I walked into the back door of my house and I was greeted by a trail of rose petals. The petals led me to the living room where my husband to be was waiting for me. There were rose petals, flowers, and candles everywhere and Scott was dressed in a suit. As soon as I walked into the living room, he dropped to one knee and proposed to me. It was so romantic and sweet! I was even more surprised because he had told me he was also going out of town on a fishing trip, so seeing him and the romantic proposal were wonderful surprises!"
