Austin, Texas – home of the weird, land of the eclectic. If you’re interested in a magical and eccentric Austin engagement session – we’ve found the perfect place. Austin’s Cathedral of Junk, a just-for-fun pet project of a local South Austin resident, right in his backyard – and it’s open to visitors (and the recently engaged)!

If you’re having a hard time visualizing what a cathedral made of junk looks like and why you’d want to see it – think of a world made entirely of readily available magically-infused everyday objects held together by pluck and imagination – and a little bit of welding. It’s not only impressive, it’s just plain neat.

I took my friends Callie and Jeff here for an adventure, and if you’re curious about a Cathedral of Junk engagement, have a peak!
