Our diamond of a city just became even more bright and shiny with our new Central Library. Austin’s new six-story library is filled with natural light that pours through gigantic windows and well-placed clerestories, beaming sunshine into every floor. This makes it a joyous adventure to climb upward, experiencing every level of our library, from the ground floor amphitheater to the rooftop garden. Read More
It feels like our Fall season has brought some fragility to my extended family, just like the falling leaves. Still, there is so much to celebrate, including the life of my dear Auntie Stephanie. We brought the kids to her ranch house on Halloween night, for festivities complete with lions, and honeybees, and bears–oh my!

You’ve spent so much time getting everything ready for your big day. Right from selecting a picturesque venue, rings, caterers, florists, to wedding décor, guest invites, and photographers, you’ve paid attention to every small detail. Then the wedding day goes by fast (too fast). Once the event has passed, many couples wish to remember the details of their experience, which is why modern couples prefer to hire a videographer to make their wedding film.
The Austin videographers at ARISE Video Studio had the pleasure of filming the wedding of Whittney and Jordan in Boulder, Colorado, a few weeks ago.

Here in the Austin area, it’s the season for wildflowers and whippoorwills. By the roadsides and in the countryside we see gorgeous green fields full of flowers. The blossoms most abundant right now are called firewheels, Indian blankets, or sundance flowers. They’re the ones with red centers and yellow edges.
