What can I say about this to that you can see when you meet them. They are to two happiest couple you will meet.  Fun, loving, & “childish” but only in the sense that we are both still kids at heart.   Katlen has been planning this for over a year.   Their love story started back in high school they were just friends and became best friends as the years when on through High School. “It wasn’t until our freshmen year of college that we started liking each other.” Katelyn.   Who would've known that when that 1st date at The Oasis in on traves lake in TX. Would be the last 1st date.


How you got engaged? “He proposed in Rhode Island the weekend of his graduation from Officer Candidate School.  We went to a pre-graduation dinner. He and his parents were both acting super weird, so I knew something was up, but I wasn’t quite sure yet. We rushed out of his dinner as the sun was setting. We drove past the hotel we were staying at and I really knew something was going on. His dad took us to this beautiful spot that overlooked the water and then I saw my parents standing under a gazebo. Daniel began saying how every day before “chow” he would look out to this spot, and this is where he pictured asking me to spend the rest of our lives together. The rest was history from there :)” - Katelyn.


The Bride & Groom:  Daniel graduated from Texas A&M University with a Petroleum Engineering degree and is now currently serving in the United States Navy. Katelyn just graduated with her Masters in Accountancy and is studying for the CPA exams. She has passed three and will take the other after the wedding.

Wedding day:  Daniel Ochsner and Katelyn Nyland pick a beautiful garden wedding location at the Hummingbird House in Austin TX   5 1/2 lush tropical acres with magnificent landscape lighting. There colors Buch, White, pink, roses gold, and Navy.  All the flowers were done by Zuzu’s Petals Katelyn choose white stock flowers, "quicksand" roses, white veronica, "patience" garden roses, white dahlias, "strawberry milkshake" lisianthus, and white ranunculus in her bouquet.

Katelyn decided to do a first look with her dad at the last minute and is we heartfelt.

There out the day of the wedding, the song “I am 16 going on 17” from the sound of music kept doing through my head. Maybe it was because of the jasmine covered gazebo or that he was in dress whites.  Or that they have been friends when they were 16 & 17 but either way it was a magical time. At the end of the night, they existed with sparklers and go into a TX big limo.

ROSE GOLD AND DONUTS | Davidson Wedding

Kristi and Joel are a very sweet loving couple. During our meeting, I asked them where was there the first date. The first date was at the local Starbucks. “He had me at LATTE!” said Kristi.  Both Kristi and Joel work at the police department. Kristi is a dispatcher and Joel is an officer. Who would’ve known that the love your life was at work? You may have talked to him every single day and did not know it. Even though they work in the same place they don’t get to see each because she is in the office helping others and directing law-enforcement to go help those in need.  


Wedding Day:  When I arrived at the venue it was absolutely breathtaking.

Kristi filled the reception hall with pink, rose gold, and Ruby colors and sparkly twinkly things anywhere they would fit. SPARKLE, Sparkle, sparkle!  Joel and Kristi’s dog Ruby could not make it to the wedding. So every tabletop had an adorable picture of their pug Ruby. In all of her outfits. I got the pleasure of meeting the Ruby of the hour at the engagement session we did in June. Such a sweety.


Kristi was getting ready in the Corpus Christi suite her and her bridesmaids fill the room with laughter. Before we walked out the door Kristi had to put on some perfume. “I need to be Viva La JUICY!”  Kristi said. As a plume of perfume covered her. Giggles….


One of the highlights of the reception was the Starbucks and donut bar. They had them custom-made that morning so they smelled amazing with the coffee. Until I left that evening, I don’t think anyone ate the tie-dyed doughnut because it was the prettiest doughnut. Every time I see this photo of donuts I get very hungry.  Mmm…. I’ve never seen such beautiful donuts in my life.


While everyone was eating dinner and watching the sunset Kristi and Joel were able to sneak away and have a moment and watch the sunset…. “Love you a Latte!” wipers felled the air.

3, 2, 1 "I DO" ! HAPPY NEW YEAR'S | Stacy and Justin‘s New Year's Eve wedding  



New Year’s Eve wedding are always fun and the party goes on all night long.

There’s something about New Year’s eve night that is magical in its own way. But when you are also celebrating someone’s wedding it becomes more than just counting down till midnight. About celebrating a new life together and it feels like the party never ends. The celebration goes on the cheers and good wishes fill the air and not only for the bride and groom for everybody happiness, love, it doesn’t feel like goodbye it feels more of a hello.

As we celebrated the new year and welcoming Stacy and Justin to a new beginning and 2018 snow fell from the sky as if they were being blessed. Not everyone gets to have a snow exit. The magical moments just kept happening for these two.  




Behind the Scenes 

I Arrived in Austin a day early and I was hoping for good weather for the wedding day. As wedding day approached I was happy it wasn’t going to rain but there was a high possibility that it would snow. The day prior to the wedding it was overcast all day and 38° was the high. Wedding day that I was 35° with Wind gust making it feel like it was 30°. Still very overcast. So Plan B sprung into action. Trying to get as many outdoor location shots as possible. We had to move inside. The coordinators at Memory Lane did a beautiful job setting up the ceremony site. Adding twinkly lights to the inside of the venue and having drapery fabrics. That would’ve been at the arbor outside. The aisle was covered with white rose petals and candles. Setting the scene for a very romantic ceremony. All the table toppers were New Year’s eve themed with clock set for midnight. The room sparkled with silver and accents of plum purple.

Making it on the cover I are so excited to be on the cover of the Texas wedding guide magazine. This issue was their very first issue as a 8.5x11 full-size magazine, and it's their 30th anniversary helping brides find vendors for their dream wedding. 

Being on the cover has been a long time goal of mine ever since I started Photography. Even though I've been published in multiple magazines, there's no feeling like getting the phone call saying that one of your photos was selected to go on the cover. Eeeek! Excitement, heart racing, tears.  The first two people I called when I found out were my grandmother, who introduced me to the world of for photography, and my mom, who has always been supportive no matter what emotional state I was in, and who always pinned all of my art to the refrigerator. Mom is going to need some strong magnets to put the magazine on the refrigerator! 

Every time I send my work to others for magazine content I hold my breath when I get a copy in the mail wondering what photos were selected, and where they lie within the magazine. Did they pick my top favorites? The tension of waiting can sometimes be unbearable! Yet I find myself are resubmitting every time. 

So happy!

Why Engagement photos?  

Ring ShootRing ShootBrubaker Portrait wedding photographic style is artistic, lifestyle, editorial, and documentary photography. We are there to capture every moment of your wedding day.


Engagement sessions can be done at any time no matter how long or little time you've been engaged. Engagement sessions usually last an hour to an hour and a half. It's best if you have a location in mind; for instance, like where your first date was, a favorite park, where your fiancé proposed, or just where ever you feel the love. Any of those make a great location for an engagement session, but if you're drawing a blank on where to go Brubaker Portraits has several pre-selected locations. Our locations are the 360 Overlook , Austin Skyline, Austin TX SoCo, Texas Hill Country, and a few different wineries. 

Now if you're asking yourself "why are engagements session so important?" There is two reasons. First is so you get to know your photographer better. The other is so that you could have images of you and your fiancé in a relaxed setting without the hustle and bustle of your wedding.

The photos from the session have a few wonderful options as well. For example, imagine a professional portrait of you and your fiancé on the wall which you can look at for many years from that time before you were married. Adding a 16 x 20 hanging picture in your home or apartment is always nice to have, or to give to your family. Another idea some of our brides have is a fun album made from the engagement session photos, and using it as a guest book at their wedding, engagement party, or just to have on the coffee table to look through. In fact, I've had some of my couples make thank you cards for guests and family after the wedding. 

Finally, don't forget about "Save the Date" cards. These modern type of cards are sent out as early notifications announcing your engagement, with slightly less formal feel than wedding invitation, but all of the important information your guests need, like wedding venue, date, websites or hashtags for your wedding. "Save the Date" cards serve as an extra alert to friends and family.

Below are just a few ideas for you!

Stephanie and Eric's engagement shoot Bill "my assistant" and I went down to SoCo very early Sunday morning to photograph Stephanie and Eric's engagement session. The sun was just awaking and the neighborhood was rising up and going to the local coffee spot. Joe's Café or more famously known as the "love you so much" wall art.

This was the first time I met Stephanie, though previously we exchanged lots of email. I actually met Eric first. He was so sweet, explaining how hard Stephanie works and how much he appreciates everything she does for him before he signed the contract.

Eric was dressed in his military dress uniform and Stephanie wore a pretty royal blue dress so they matched. Stephanie personalized her outfit with a stunning pair of red pointed to high heels. Stephanie is so happy to marry in October she's like a bottle of champagne overflowing with joy. Being around Stephanie and Eric, there is no doubt about the love and happiness they have for one another.

After we finished photographing in front of the "love you so much” wall art. We worked our way down south Congress, taking a break alongside San Jose hotel. The green vines that cover the wall along the hotel really cast a luscious look to the photographs. 

Our Lady of Guadalupe is where Stephanie and Eric are getting married. Stephanie told me about a photograph in front of the church her family has of her and her parents when she was a child; she wanted to duplicate the image, so we found an opening in the fence and re-created a similar moment.
