Elegant, dramatic, glamorous, and classy, this engagement shoot at The Contemporary Austin – Laguna Gloria captured by Nikk Nguyen is absolutely timeless. The Italianate-style villa on the shores of Lake Austin provided the ideal backdrop to capture the timeless love between Crystal and Steve. We adore the noticeable progression of the shoot, starting with some more casual outdoor shots by the lakeshore, followed by a dramatic outfit change to match the remarkable interior of the historic site.
“Crystal and Steve’s Laguna Gloria photoshoot to celebrate their engagement was so fun to photograph,” Nikk Nguyen Photo commented. “This couple has a sweetness and a dignity that made the Laguna Gloria a great setting for them.”
Crystal and Steve married in front of a judge in July 2020 after postponing their initial ceremony date due to the coronavirus. The wait was well worth it, though, as the couple had the ceremony and reception of their dreams earlier this year! The pair enjoyed an intimate, family-only affair at W Austin in April, followed by a lively reception with friends in May. Keep scrolling to see more gorgeous photos from Crystal and Steve’s Laguna Gloria engagement shoot and see what the bride thought about splitting the couple’s wedding festivities into two parts!
From the bride: “I love that we had an intimate ceremony with family and a separate party reception with friends. I feel like your wedding weekend is so rushed, so we got the opportunity to split up our wedding and reception into two different weekends. I got to spend the most time with each group by dedicating a special weekend for both!”
