Marfa Texas Engagement Session with Ashley and Caleb at El Cosmico

Eee! Now for a Marfa Texas Engagement Session. Ashley and Caleb are getting married in exactly one month from today on Caleb’s family farm near Austin Texas.  We absolutely adore these two, and I bet their texas wedding will be amazing. A bit about them, Ashley is yoga master extra-ordinaire. Caleb is an amazing tattoo artist. You can find his work here.

Most of Ashley’s wardrobe was from Anthropologie, a store we all know and love (I think I could purchase all of their knobs, because you know- someday you might find
yourself needing a pile of knobs!) While her colorful coat is from Peru.

We spent the whole session at El Cosmico, a fancy trailer hotel- filled with colorful rigs, teepees, and yurts… it’s essentially a slightly overpriced hipster paradise, and I cannot wait to go back!  (We skipped Big Bend National Park, which is due south from Marfa, so we have to go back!) The owner of El Cosmico also has a boutique hotel in Austin.  We look most of our photos in Little Pinky, which is where Ashley and Caleb stayed as well as TeePee #2, which is where Jason and I stayed.  The teepee was suprisingly warm, especially for a cold Texas desert winter night.

Ashley and Caleb have been living together with their adorable dog in Austin for most of their adult lives, which is the perfect city for them. I love Austin.  Speaking of towns in Texas, Marfa is pretty extraordinary! It’s super tiny, like less than 2,000 people tiny. But it has a massive art scene, which started back in the 1960’s and 1970’s and grew with the coming of the Chinati Foundation. Though, it’s about a 7 hour drive from Austin. Which goes well with the town’s slogan: “Hard to get to, and harder to explain.”  And that takes us back to why Caleb and Ashley had a Marfa Texas Engagement Session.
