A couple of weeks ago I had the pleasure of photographing my cousin Nicole’s engagement photos. Below are a few of my favorites from the session. I’m excited to photograph their wedding in September! I hope you enjoy these! šŸ˜€

Hey, cool cats and kittens! (Is that still relevant?)

As you may have seen, there are some changes happening to the website, my socials, and everything else surrounding my photo business. I thought I would give you a quick little update!

The site has been changed to jbcaro.com My name. It’s just so much easier to write and remember than Jalys Caro. I wanted jcaro.com, but it was already taken soooooooo what’s one more letter? I’m still working out a lot of the kinks. I will be adding a new logo, more photos, and I will be posting more. YEAH! Be patient as I have a lot of ideas bouncing around and I need to carefully incorporate everything at the right time.

Make sure to follow me on Instagram {@j.bcaro}. I started a series called Into The Vault where I’m posting photographs throughout the years.

As live shows are starting to take place, keep me in mind if you are needing some new photos. Let’s connect and create some fun images. I’m a photo pass away from helping you promote your music.

That’s it for now. Make sure to follow me and come check out the new look.

Reese’s Headshots

I met ReeseĀ  (Reese’s Pieces) when I started working for the company I work for now. She is part of the college team division of the company, while I’m in operations. Both of our areas shared our Austin campus location. I was immediately drawn to her because we share similar interests and we make each other laugh. Over the past year and a half, we have developed a pretty fun friendship, and I think the world of her. She just got engaged on NYE and has started the fun process of planning her wedding! Super excited for her and her future husband. Below are some headshots from our session. She totally needs to model as a side gig, she’s fierce y’all!

 

I’m almost done editing photos from Tagger’s 4th birthday party last week! Look for those on the blog next week. Have a wonderful weekend!

Espana sneak.

I took these photos almost a year and a half ago, but I never shared them with the world. I loved our trip to Spain. I had a hard time adjusting at times, but overall the experience changed my life. I will get into details later, however, let me just say Luis rocked it when it came to planning our honeymoon. Without his planning and research, we would have not been able to see as much of Spain as we did! I can’t wait to go back one day.

For now, enjoy a couple of photos. A full post coming soon!

ELEVEN DAYS!

I realize some of you have no idea what the title to this blog is referencing. It has been awhile, folks. From my last post to today, there have been some changes!

First, I no longer work for Texas Tech University. It was time to move on and seek a different place of employment. I have so many great memories and have met the most amazing students while working at Texas Tech. I love my school, and I will always cherish the adventures and great times working for Tech, however, after 4 years I was looking for something different. I currently work at Texas Exes, the official Ex-Students Association for The University of Texas. Yup, I’m working with the big dogs and burnt orange. It has been a different environment, but I can say that it is going well. I’ll always bleed Red and BlackĀ don’t you worry! I still get to have student interaction and work for a great organization that is creating excellent opportunities for incoming students. I’ll talk more about my position on a post later.

Second, 11 days. Ahhhh Eleven Days. ELEVEN DAYS until I become MRS. CARO! Luis and I will be getting married on May 28th. It seems like we were engaged forever ago, now 10 months later, we are about to become husband and wife. I remember the days where I cried, screamed, prayed and bargained with God to bring me a nice man that I can spend the rest of my life with. He definitely brought me a great one. Most of my favorite moments in my life have been spent with him. He’s the one I can’t wait to see when I come home and the one I love talking to about everything. We have been blessed to go on some fun adventures, see some really awesome music, see almost every sports Austin has to offer, and most importantly, get to know each other and who we are. We have built a bond and foundation to always try and keep trying to make our relationship great. We don’t always see eye to eye, but at the end of the day, we know we love each other, and we know we are both all in to make it work. So, in eleven days we will make this a permanent adventure. I.Can’t.Wait.

Third, is that we are getting married, we had to have some photos taken. That’s right, I finally had to be in front of the camera instead of behind it. NERVES. This was something I was dreading and putting off until the last minute. We chose a fantastic photographer names J.Masciana Photography. She’s been putting up with my difficult and annoying requests. Fun fact, she has the same degree (Photocommunications) as I have except she graduated from a school in California. Totally Random! That pretty much sealed the deal for me. She’s been so great to us. Below are some photos from our shoot. I will have to say after the shoot, I was a wreck, I didn’t want to see the photos. Then, she sent us the link to the photos, I ugly cried with how great they turned out. We are so in love with them. I could not have asked for better photos.

Fourth, Speaking of photos andĀ adventures… We decided for our honeymoon that we are going to SPAIN! We are going to spend 2 weeks exploring Spain. That means TONS of photos. TONS. I am super excited that I will be able to take my camera and photograph, photograph, photograph, and photograph some more. Luis and I love traveling together, and of course, you guys know I love photographing! When I moved into Luis’s house a little over a year ago, he had it remodeled before I moved in. We also purchased almost everything new because we were making it our home. So, when it came to figuring out registries for our wedding, we knew that we didn’t need a lot of things for the house. We decided on creating a HoneyFund to help make our dream vacation come to fruition. Hopefully, everyone will feel the same way about our idea!

 

I promise I will update more often! We went on an 8 day trip to California in September, and I’ll post those photos soon.

I have great news! …. over a month later.

This summer has been absolutely insanely busy! This summer was full of family time and work. We spent A LOT of time in Abilene. I have spent even more time working in Lubbock this summer.

If you follow me on Instagram or Facebook, you already know the exciting news. If not, this is the purpose of today’s blog….

On July 4th, Luis asked me to marry him! That’s right, I’m ENGAGED! He totally surprised me during a fireworks show. My dreams and prayers came true. We are getting married May 28, 2016, in Georgetown, TX. We made our wedding website on The Knot and our Honeymoon/Registry on Honey Fund. Below are links to these sites so you can see and read the whole story. Get ready for teasers and posts about our upcoming wedding! šŸ™‚

Soon, I’ll be adding more photos from projects that I have worked on in the spring and summer. Here is a sneak for now!

Lone Star Roundup

As promised, here are the photos form Lone Star Roundup. It was fun to walk around and photograph at my leisure. 99% of these photos are detailed photographs. I’m not a car photographer, I just love photographing details that I find interesting! I love the opportunity to go out and just photograph my interests.

I’m super excited to say that in 2 days, Luis and I will be in Denver for the weekend! We’ve been working sooooooo hard lately with me working weekends for events through my job, that we decided to reward ourselves with a mini vacation. We only have a few plans, a baseball game Friday night, we want to go to the zoo and the museum of nature and science. The rest of the time we will decide when we get there. There will be a couple of brewery tours, but we really haven’t picked out which ones. Both of our jobs are very demanding and are scheduled months in advance. We don’t want to plan our vacation activities. I’m terrified and excited at the same time! Hahaha. Of course, I’m bringing my camera along to document our trip! So be on the lookout for photos and our adventures!

I hope y’all enjoy the car show photos!
