Ughh… WOW so yesterday we had our I think 8th South Austin Portrait Party and holy crap, there was like more than 50 people there. We had like 15-20 subjects to photograph which were mainly DJ/Producers from the Austin area as well as like 20+ photographers and anywhere from 10-20 randoms who wanted to see what it was all about. All I can say is thank you so much! Aviary Decor and Wine bar was packed to the brim. They had all sorts of delicious drinks it was amazing, Marco the owner and his wife were incredibly kind and let us have full use of the store we moved stuff around and pretty much did what we wanted. Check out their website and their store http://www.aviarydecor.com/

We even got some press which I was surprised by so thank you to the press gods and what not…
