Seattle Bound

I'm so excited to be heading back to the west coast to take more pictures in beautiful Seattle, WA. That is one thing that I love about my job - I can do it anywhere. Seattle is such a fun, vibrant city - a lot like Austin - so visiting is always so comfortable and fun. Here is a look back at some of my previous trips. If you are in the Seattle area and need some shots, please contact me!

The Details {Wedding Edition}

One of the best part about weddings is all the tiny details that go into the big day - here is a sample of all the fine details over the years that I've been lucky enough to photograph. 

What is your favorite detail from your big day? Mine was the ring bearer's pillow made with the lace from my Mom's wedding dress. Leave in the comments.

A Love Story...

Another wedding is up today... these two are some of the sweetest people I know. I was so excited to be a part of their wedding & I don't think I made it around to the blog with their photos. The setting was beautiful at Chapel Dulcinea with just a simple ceremony and only those near and dear there it was a great day of exchanging vows. 

What is your favorite wedding venue in the Austin and surrounding area?

Wedding Season is Upon Us...

I'm so excited for the change of pace of Wedding Season!  I thought I'd share some engagements this week and some samples from weddings I've shot as people prepare to walk down the aisle next month. I think my favorite are the "Austin Weddings" the ones that are outdoor, not too big, and a great testimony to a couple's love. So without further ado...

I'm so excited to shoot their wedding next month in Dripping Springs!

What month were you married?? I guess we were out of the loop b/c we got married in February.

Mother's Day Event at Salon HUE

I want to give a big shout out to everyone who came out for our Mother's Day event last Friday at Salon HUE! I got to meet a ton of new people that I hope to see again in front of my camera, as well as, get some great shots for people's headshots.

So what do you all think? What kind of event would you like to see Melanie Wright Photography at next??? Tell me in the comments!

For all the Mama's Out There

So I am reminded of this Boyz || Men song as Mother's Day quickly approaches.
One way that you can honor your Mom is by having pictures taken with her. I know, I know, pictures?? Can't I just give her a card, a hug, and a pedicure?? You can - however - those are fleeting - pictures will last a lifetime. Plus, Moms are usually the ones behind the camera - why not let Mom be the star for a little bit?? 


                                                         "A Song For Mama"

You taught me everything
And everything you've given me
I always keep it inside
You're the driving force in my life, yeah

There isn't anything
Or anyone that I can be
And it just wouldn't feel right
If I didn't have you by my side

You were there for me to love and care for me
When skies were grey
Whenever I was down
You were always there to comfort me
And no one else can be what you have been to me
You will always be
You will always be the girl in my life
For all times

Mama, mama, you know I love you
Oh you know I love you
Mama, mama, you're the queen of my heart
Your love is like tears from the stars
Mama, I just want you to know
Lovin' you is like food to my soul

You're always down for me
Have always been around for me
Even when I was bad
You showed me right from my wrong
Yes you did

And you took up for me
When everyone was downin' me
You always did understand
You gave me strength to go on

There were so many times
Looking back when I was so afraid
And then you come to me
And say to me I can face anything
And no one else can do what you have done for me
You'll always be
You will always be the girl in my life, ooh oh

Mama, mama, you know I love you
Mama, mama, you're the queen of my heart
Your love is like tears from the stars
Mama, I just want you to know
Lovin' you is like food to my soul

Never gonna go a day without you
Fills me up just thinking about you
I'll never go a day without my mama

Mama, mama, you know I love you
Mama, mama, you're the queen of my heart
Your love is like tears from the stars
Mama, I just want you to know
Lovin' you is like food to my soul

Get Yo Mama Some Cookies...

If you are in a rut as to what to get your Mom for Mother's Day, may I suggest some cookies from Sweet Elise? Not only is her work BEAUTIFUL the cookies also taste amazing too. A lot of times the cookies look gorgeous and taste not-so-awesome. This is one of the few times the looks match the taste!

I highly recommend getting some before they are all snatched up... plus, knowing Moms everywhere, she will probably share one with you. :)

HEY MOMS - Let's go pamper ourselves and get a great picture of ourselves in the process!

Melanie Wright Photography will be at Salon Hue on Friday, May 1st from 12:00 - 6:00pm. Come get a great blowout for $30 and then get a new picture of yourself for Facebook, Instagram, or heck, just for yourself taken by yours truly.

So take some time on Friday, May 1st to do something totally for yourself - then let everyone else spoil you the following weekend!

We will have speakers through out the day touching on nutrition, fashion and many other awesome things - as well as some drawing through out the day!
