Vendor Spotlight: Pubcrawler of Austin


The peddler, Bonnie and the crew!

The peddler, Bonnie and the crew!

After learning more about the booming bachelorette party culture in here in Austin, Texas I decided to connect with Pubcrawler of Austin and photograph a pub crawl with a group of ladies from out of town. (More on why later) It was one of the coolest experiences I’ve ever had as a photographer and definitely something that's on the top of my list of things I've done since living here. To say that Pubcrawler of Austin is something you have to do is definitely an understatement. Read on!

What is the Pubcrawler of Austin? As described on their website they are Austin's original pedal-powered pubcrawl. But if I had to describe it I'd say that it's one of the best ways for a group of up to 14 people to pedal, drink and laugh their way through the heart of downtown Austin, Texas. The process is pretty simple. When you show up, step one is to meet with your guide and after signing a quick waiver it's time to hop on your peddler. On this particular day, our guide was a cool cat by the name of Bonnie. As he describes it, "Yes! Bonnie with a 'B' and yes, just like Bonnie and Clyde. Shit happens!" After being briefed on the rules and regulations of the peddler it was off to the races! Just in case you’re wondering, the answer is yes! You have to pedal or the vehicle won’t move. It's very fitting that Pubcrawler of Austin has a simple motto...... Pedal Bitches!

The ladies were able to listen to any music they liked while on the peddler after Bonnie passed them the AUX cord (which is 100% clutch) and that set the stage for the entire time we were together. The pub crawl lasted about two hours as we made our way through Austin's downtown grid, stopping to hop out and explore the various bars/pubs in the immediate area. This is great for anyone looking to find a fun and unique way to learn more about the bar scene or anyone who is flying in from out of town and wants to experience Austin in a 'fast' and furious way. We stopped at the Tiniest Bar in Texas, Hangar Lounge and The Bling Pig Pub before wrapping things up at a nice lounge called LUX. Tons of action! Tons of great moments!

The thing I enjoyed the most was how much everyone was able to let their hair down and just have fun. The music was blasting, the drinks were cold and at times it felt like we were in our own little world separate from everyone else. People were taking photos of us, interacting with us, whistling, honking their horns and making the experience even more enjoyable. As a photographer I had an amazing time and by the end of the day I felt like I was one of the crew instead of just the photo guy. I met the coolest group of ladies who flew in from different parts of the country and it was great getting to know them while capturing great moments as they experienced downtown Austin for the very first time.

If you’re looking for one of the best ways to experience downtown Austin while grabbing drinks with friends and family or if you’re planning a bachelorette party and you’re looking for something to do on a Saturday afternoon you absolutely need to get in touch with Pubcrawler of Austin. Tell Jennifer I sent you and be sure to let Bonnie know how cool his first name.

Shane & Abbey's Bob Hall Pier Engagement Session | Corpus Christi

When the light is just right, everything else just takes care of itself. Shane and Abbey were so focused on each other and it was beautiful to watch them interact with one another. I'm so glad they made the drive down from San Antonio to spend some time with me. Bob Hall Pier was good to us.

Chris & Monica's In-Home Engagement Session

Chris & Monica decided to have their engagement session at their gorgeous new home over in Four Bluff. I couldn't wait to dive in and see what we could create together. Chris and Monica were the most loving couple EVER which made my job super easy. 

We started in the front yard and snagged a few photos before heading inside. They enjoyed a glass or two of champagne while we chatted more. Before heading to the backyard they cuddled up on the couch and watched a little SNL. Lol. (The family feud skits are always instant classics)

Once we made it outside again, the weather couldn't have been better. Not a cloud in the sky, the perfect temperature and no wind allowed us to enjoy our time to the fullest. Throw in two dogs and it was a party!

I can't wait to shoot their wedding next year at the CW Hill Country Ranch and I'm happy we were able to create these memories together.

Derek & Jessa's Mansion by the Sea Destination Wedding

Derek and Jessa's destination wedding at Mansion by the Sea was so much fun. Being that it was my first time shooting at this venue I was excited to see what moments I'd be able to capture and I approached the day with curiosity. Derek and Jessa were so amazing. What I enjoyed most about their wedding was all the unique elements they incorporated. Most noticeably.....a video game station!! Something I've never seen but will never forget, it was really cool to see the bride and groom playing Nintendo 64 together after they said 'I Do.' (and I may have played a game or two of Super Smash Brothers)

My first wedding at Mansion by the Sea was a success. An affectionate, loving bride and groom, a gorgeous venue and perfect weather made Derek and Jessa's wedding the perfect way to spend a Saturday. Another reason why I love what I do to the absolute fullest. 

Jose & Karista's West Guth Park Engagement Session

Jose & Karista contacted me with a little over a month left until their big day. I was so happy that I was available to shoot and we immediately planned an engagement session about a week later. They really wanted a few images in the comfort of their own home so we spent some time in their living room and then explored their backyard.

Once the sun started to make it's way down we took a quick drive to West Guth Park out in Calallen. I'd never been there before but was immediately blown away by the rolling hills and endless opportunities to capture great moments. With just a few weeks until they tie the knot at Mansion Royale here in Corpus Christi, I can't wait to see them walk down the aisle as husband and wife.
