Number 9 Photography voted Best of the Knot 2012!

We can't thank our brides enough for helping vote us Best of the Knot 2012. Last year, we loved every commitment ceremony, first look, yellow mustang, DIY alter, color scheme, party boat, luchador mask, exotic bouquet, amphitheater and P. Terry's truck you presented. Thanks for making our jobs interesting!

Maternity Photographer: Shelley + Mathew Pridgen

We first met Shelley back a few years back when we photographed her wedding to Mat.  We been lucky to be a part of Shelley's engagements, bridals, wedding and now her first child, Shannah. Shelley knew she wanted Mat to be a part of the shoot, so we tried to capture the love and excitement the two of them share as they embark on parenthood. Being a self-proclaimed nature nerd, Shelley brought along some of the toys that will decorate Shannah's owl-themed room. The Keep Austin Weird onesie is a funny stab at their families who give them grief for loving Austin so much. Here's their Butler Park shoot!

Palm Door Wedding Reception: Gaby + Steve

With this post we are proud to officially welcome Jamie to the Number 9 family. Some of our brides may have met Jamie when she filled in for a few weddings last year. We loved her work so much that we decided to make her a permanent part of Number 9 when Kim decided to move on. After two plus years with Number 9, we would like to extend our thanks to Kimberly Massey and wish her well with her own wedding this summer.  Feel free to drop Kim of Jamie a line to say thanks  or show your support. 

With that news,'s one of Jamie's first weddings with Number 9.  

To introduce Gaby and Steve, I'll refer back to Gaby's sister's wedding toast. She said Gaby could not have found a better man to marry, and the fact that Steve is a kindergarten teacher, only made him more perfect for Gaby. These two were not only in love, but the genuinely enjoyed each other's company. Gaby met Steve in the church garden's for a  first look, and it was Steve who surprised his groomsmen with the  Luchador masks...definitely a wedding highlight!
