Last week, I had the honor and privilege of photographing Mr. Julian Read’s 85th birthday party at the Austin Club.
This party had a GREAT theme. It was vintage press inspired (in honor of JOR’s successful career) with decor including an old fashioned typewriter, “press font” on all signage and cake with a typewriter design!
Party planners provided a press card to put in my hat to complete my old school photographer ensemble.
Every touch was authentic and evoked many memories for the attendees.
I very much look up to JOR. He is a PR and communications veteran with deep roots in Austin AND Fort Worth, TX (he clearly has a powerful network of successful individuals in the state). He is admirable and the speech he gave that night was awe-inspiring.
But most importantly, his birthday celebration was a big hit. The venue was decked out with tables of memorabilia from his career (nearly 60 years!), a slideshow projecting old photographs onto a stationary screen, good eats and drinks galore and great conversation from every corner of the room.
It was a lovely event. I’m so glad I was there. Happy birthday, JOR! Hope the 85th is your best year yet!

She may live in Cincinnati, but Christine’s roots are in Austin, Texas. It was only fitting that our fair city and hometown serve as the inspiration for our best friend’s bridal shower.
After months of planning and plotting, the big night finally arrived. From classic Texas decor to Austin inspired cookies (guitars, stars and bats anyone?) our theme was complete. Here are a few scenes from the celebration!
We love you, Christine! You’re the best friend a girl could ask for!
Special thanks to my sister, Laura, for stepping behind the camera to grab a few shots from the party. Without her, I might not be in any!
