Susan and Brian ~ Austin Engagement Photographer


Actually, it’s the Mammoth and Susan. And also, they’re actually from Houston. But they don’t mind driving up to Austin for engagement photos but they wanted to try something a little different. What kinds of things do you like to do? I asked them. “We like to play Skeeball,” they said.

Skeeball it is, then…and more besides.

They brought with them the book that Brian Mammoth made to propose to Susan. Yes, he drew the bunny. Yes, he drew the Mammoth. And he was partly responsible for the story. Susan was a big reason he created it in the first place so in a very real sense she helped make it.

And they’re still writing their story. We get to be there when a new chapter is written on their wedding day.

This last image is actually a panorama of something like 18 images stitched together in Photoshop. Most know it as the Brenizer method and the resulting files are huge but give a really nice effect, similar to a rangefinder camera might. It seemed like a good time to try to make one of these so I finally did! Next time, I’ll be using a longer lens (this one was an 85mm).
