Laura & Evan Engagement {McKinney Falls State Park, Austin, Texas}

I love reconnecting with old friends through photography! I met Laura years back when we were both espresso slingers at the good old Buda Starbucks. She is such a delight to be around and I loved being coworkers with her. As things often go, Laura moved away, and I stopped working at Starbucks and we kept up mostly on Facebook. Then once day I saw her get engaged!!! She contacted me to shoot engagements and brought Evan down to Austin to do them. I was excited to meet Evan and see that they are an absolute proper fit.

McKinney Falls is always a dream to shoot, with pretty water, bombass rocks and killer flower fields. Make sure to catch the appearance of the moon at the end. (not being cheeky, for real the real moon haha)

Denver {Texas State Senior}

This girl is one of my oldest & dearest friends, so naturally I was STOKED when she graduated & wanted senior photos. I may however have been even more stoked on reading the text she sent me when she asked me.

"Hey Desiree! The senior portraits that you've been posting are kinda making me rethink my original notion that "senior portraits are laaaaaaame." (That's a compliment, I think they're fucking awesome)." -Denver

So here's to all my seniors who didn't want lame senior photos & were willing to take some time to be creative with meeeeeeeee. Rock on y'all.

Josh & Christina Wedding at The Vineyard at Florence {Florence, Texas}

Desiree at Elkk Photography was such a pleasure to work with. We left our wedding not only feeling like we had a great photographer but a great friend too. She was able to capture candid moments perfectly, even during our engagement session with our 100lb St. Bernard puppy (no easy feat!). She is very responsive and eager to share her work - we were amazed we had a sneak peek of our wedding photos by the morning after. Words cannot express how much it means to us to have these precious family moment documented just as we remembered. Highly recommend Desiree!  -Josh & Christina

This wedding day went so smooth & I truly believe that was half to Josh & Christina being freaking awesome, chill people & half to them trusting an amazing vendor team! It really can make a huge difference in your day. Make sure to check some of these amazing peeps out:
