Dripping Springs, Texas – Vista West Ranch (HDR)

I had a bucket list of shots I wanted to take before leaving Austin. This was one. One day we were looking for new locations and came across this super rusty old Packard at Vista West Ranch. I knew I had to go back and shoot it in HDR. Such a stunning cool spot for a wedding!!!!

Some info from their website…

Our love and commitment to our clients isn’t the only thing that makes Vista West Ranch special. Our venue is located in Dripping Springs, just 20 minutes southwest of Austin, nestled in the heart of the Texas Hill Country. Hundred-year old oak trees, an enchanting waterfall, amazing sunsets, breathtaking views of the hill country that seem to go on forever… these are just a few of the reasons that our clients choose to celebrate their weddings with us. Our onsite lodging accommodations also make Vista West Ranch a top pick for couples choosing Austin as the location for their destination weddings.

It is a beautiful place! I can only imagine all the wonderful photos taken with a bride and groom with this old Packard. Looks to be a 1950? Not sure. Classic! Kudos Vista West Ranch!

    OK, now that is freaking cool. Although it’s kinda sad too, cause man I would love to fix that thing up!

  2. Nice! Maybe just a tad overdone…think the sky would look better and more realistic if it wasn’t HDR’d…;)

  3. Nice usage of textures 🙂
