Gathered Together Coffee Roasters Launch Party ~ Austin Event Photography


We don’t just get to photograph weddings but also get to do some Austin event photography. Or, in this case, Hutto Event Photography ūüôā



So #blessed to have had the honor of being the Austin event photographer for¬†Gathered Together Coffee Roasters‘ Thanks a BRUNCH launch party!

I’ve had the distinct pleasure of getting to work with Jessica a while back. She and her husband, Daniel, began their own home-based business selling fair trade roasted coffee. Their business has so far enjoyed a successful Kick Starter campaign—as a supporter, I’ve enjoyed the coffee so much!—and now they regularly sell at farmers markets as well as online. The proceeds that they received at the party were donated to a cause that serves their local community.

During the launch party, Debbie Holland, past mayor of the city of Hutto, shared about the importance of small, local businesses on the city’s economy and community growth. Daniel and Jessica both shared the evolution of their endeavor as well as the future plans God has placed on their hearts. As change, funding and preparation comes, Gathered Together Roasters hopes to be able to employ people in need to become part of their team. What an awesome way to give back!

And speaking of team, these are the gracious vendors who put their heart and soul into making this event wonderful:

Incredible venue: One Eleven East in Hutto
Wonderfully eclectic, stylish rentals: 10th Collection
eautiful floral artistry: Visual Lyrics
Super delicious treats (I sampled so I know!): BeYOUtiful Sweets
Inspiration and event design: She Inspires
Design elements: Celebrate Well
Fuuuun photo Booth: Photography by CecilyJo

Are you wondering where you can get your own supply of Gathered Together Roasters beans? You can get your own subscription at¬†their online shop and never run out of great coffee again. Or¬†head over to Hutto’s¬†weekly farmers market, grab a few bags and say hi to Jessica and Daniel in person!

Congratulations, Jessica and Daniel! I’m so excited to see how God’s planning to work through you and¬†Gathered Together Coffee Roasters!

Weddings aren’t the only fast-moving, people-jul events that I get to shoot. If you’re looking for a real, lovely way to remember your birthday parties, business events, family reunions…any gathering that you want to remember, really,¬†do let me know. I would absolutely love to document it for you!
