weekend fun // lifestyle // austin, tx

This weekend was freaking rad. The end.  

Okay, not the end. Jordan and I spent the weekend down ravaging Southern Congress in Austin eating awesome food and relaxing. Which isn't a big change from our regular Austin trips. The addition was hanging out/being photographed by Pat Furey, which was effing rad. Only bummer was not getting to hangout with our puppy while we were down in Austin. On the plus side, we dominated Homeslice, Hopdoddy, and some Lockhart BBQ (before we left for Austin, of course). Pat was rad as hell to work with. Easily the only time I've actually really enjoyed being on the other end of the lens.

I grabbed this frame of Pat while he was taking a photo of Jordan with my iPhone+VSCOCam.

And since I'm now back with the puppy (hell yes), here are some photos I grabbed of her just a bit before we left...

Okay, this is from when she was a puppy. Like three months old puppy. The rest are from now (~9 months old)


To say Jordan and I missed Lola would be an understatement. Seriously. I think we talked about her non-stop all weekend.

And to say I didn't use this as an excuse to post about our dog would be an outright lie.

sxsw 2012 // austin tx

Well, I'm stoked to say SXSW has become a tradition, and an awesome one at that. A week roaming the streets of one of the greatest cities I've visited, seeing bands play in parking lots, BBQ joints, and random ass country bars, dominating pizza, burgers, and BBQ in a way that would be life threatening if it weren't for walking about ten miles a day (up hill both ways, of course). Yeah, pretty freaking awesome. I get pretty damn pumped on SXSW. It's one of the few times when I really just 100% shoot for myself and that I seem to get beyond stoked on the images I make, plus trying new things with absolutely no pressure but what I put on myself is a nice little relief. So, before I bore you to death, I'll just let the images say the rest.


one of fun. // music // austin tx

fun? yeah, fun.. playing the Waterloo Music parking lot in Austin, Texas during SXSW this year. I'm still stoked I got to see them in such a unique setting playing such a stripped down set. I didn't feel like completely filling the SXSW post with frames of fun., so I figured I'd make a post to show y'all a few more. so, yeah, fun. rules. if your familiarity with fun. begins and ends with "we are young," I'd definitely recommend you check out the rest of "Some Nights" and their previous album "Aim and Ignite." Hell, go listen to The Format while you're at it. You won't regret it. (but if you bad)
