Amani and Josh, Broadway actress and sound guru respectively, are creative forces who put together one hell of a backyard-style garden wedding. The wedding was held in one of Austin’s most interesting venue spaces, Lady Bird Johnson Wildflower Center, and featured a fab crop top dress, an embroidered groom’s jacket, the jumping of the broom, and so many colorful details in the decor.

What is “slice of life” photography and why it will save your wedding photos

We had a discussion with one of our favorite photographers, Austin-based Madelinne Grey about her philosophy in capturing the key moments in a wedding day in a super natural and realistic way. Let me tell you, it was illuminating. She has some serious skills and a really natural method that’s right in line with the needs of offbeat couples. If you want less stiff and formal posed shots and more sweet moments and telling details, then “slice of life” photography is going to be YOUR JAM. Let’s talk with Madelinne about it and how she’ll run with the concept to your utter delight.
