Something about a beautiful sunset and maternity photos goes SOOO well together—don’t you agree?!? Kayla and Andrew met me out in La Vernia on our family’s property for a perfect October evening to take her maternity photos. We had little wind, gorgeous light and no mosquitoes (so I’d say it was near perfect)! Kayla was ever the glowing mom-to-be and her floral dress was just right against the backdrop of the greenery as the sun set through the leaves.
Curtis and Jessica were married at the Hollow Creek Ranch in St. Hedwig, Texas. This working ranch was the ideal spot for this sweet couple to say their ‘I dos” alongside family and friends.
I’ve been waiting so long to share these! We took Jessica’s bridals at the Whitehall Polley Mansion this summer—-and she ROCKED IT!
Dating back to 1847, this will always be one of my favorite spots to photograph. With gorgeous textures, 18″ stone walls and beautiful antique furniture throughout, it’s a photographer’s dream. There are so many picturesque spots to take portraits both inside and outside on the grounds.
I’ve photographed many types of weddings over the years and I’ve adored them all! Brittney and Zack were no exception. I loved photographing their intimate wedding ceremony at Gruene Estate. With a navy, burgundy and light pink theme, they were married beneath the beautiful open sided chapel on the property. Surrounded by family and friends, Brittney’s dad even presided over the ceremony and gave some wonderful advice to Brittney and Zack before they both spoke their hand-written vows.
My first time photographing at the Oak Valley Vineyards venue couldn’t have been any better! Alexis and Mary Katherine were the sweetest couple with two amazing families that know how to have a great time. This was actually Alexis’ and MK’s third wedding (if you count their legal ceremony and their first wedding in France!). With Alexis’ family located abroad, they decided to have their first wedding overseas and then planned the Texas soirée in October.
I knew from the moment that I met Scott and Jess that they would be a great couple to work with. Down-to-earth and incredibly sweet, I loved working with these two!
This was a wonderful wedding! Magnolia Bells was the perfect venue to host Jennifer and Cody’s wedding as it melded with their vintage/rustic vibe quite beautifully. Located north of Magnolia, Texas and close to the Woodlands, it was the ideal setting for their intimate ceremony.
I had a great time at Curtis and Resa’s wedding—which was a pretty big one btw! With around 400 guests in attendance and a large wedding party, it was clear that there wasn’t a shortage of family and friends who wanted to show their support for this sweet couple.
This wedding was a blast! Amazing couple, adoring family and friends, great music, food, dancing…I could go on and on. The Western Sky Wedding and Event venue in Bulverde, Texas served as the perfect spot for Nicole and Frank to become man and wife. With everything conveniently located at the same facility, the day went by without a hitch.
This was my first time to work with the Miller family—and let me tell you, Miss Audra was a basket full of giggles. To commemorate her first birthday, they met me out at our property for a sunrise session under the big pecan trees. Not only did Audra like the beautiful homemade cake her mom made, she LOVED it (as you can tell from her very enthusiastic expressions after each bite). We even got a few of her with her big sister helping between outfit changes.
Aside from a crazy amount of mosquitos that evening, Sam and Valerie’s engagement session out on our property was quite literally picture perfect. I adore photo sessions that incorporate my couple’s or family’s fur babies and this one had an added bonus —they brought their horse, Jam, as well as their sweet pup, Pistol, along for the session. We had one of those magical nights without too much wind and some beautiful light as the sun started to set. It was so hard for me to even cull through the images on this one. I liked them all! I’m 100% sure that Sam and Valerie’s wedding next year will be amazing. They are one sweet couple 🙂
A sunset maternity session on gorgeous land with a ton of baby calves running around…yes, please! I had the best time driving around and chasing the sunset with Cat and Tommy during her maternity session. Scroll down below to see some of our favorites from the session.
Michael and Tiffany’s wedding was a nail biter due to the fact that up until hours before the outdoor ceremony was slated to take place, we didn’t know whether or not if it would rain! The forecast was bleak for most of the week, but when the day finally arrived, we were blessed with a sunny (albeit humid) afternoon.
Yet again, the Polley Mansion never disappoints! I’m so glad to finally share these images from Madeline’s bridal session from back in February! It was a little chilly this morning, but we had beautiful bright light to work with. Her handmade flower crown and bouquet were the perfect accents to the gorgeous textures found inside the property dating back to 1847.
Congratulations to Mr. and Mrs. King! Keaton and Chelsea were married at the Grace Bible Church in La Vernia, Texas on May 4, 2019 followed by a reception at the LV C of C Hall.. It was a day full of laughter and smiles. I can truly say I loved every minute of this wedding in my hometown. Not only were both Chelsea and Keaton a joy to work with, but they had some amazing family and friends surrounding them as well.
The Eagle Dancer Ranch is probably one of the most beautiful wedding locations I’ve photographed. With a history dating back to the 1800s, the ranch is located in the breathtaking Sisterdale valley north of Boerne, Texas.
I had the pleasure of meeting Marisa and her family at the McNay Art Museum to celebrate her sixteenth birthday. It was so much fun to walk around goof off for a bit with her mom, dad and sister in tow. Thankfully, it was a gorgeous afternoon that proceeded a bleak and rainy morning.
I had a wonderful time working with Stefany and Quinton for the first time this spring. We met at the Brakenridge Park in San Antonio one evening just before sunset. I’ve never photographed there before, so we just spent some time walking around and exploring the area. I loved the access to the water and some of the dreamy light we found along the walking paths (not to mention some of the cute ducks waddling in front of us)!
Lifestyle photography at a family’s home is simply the best! I love this approach so much more than the typical studio newborn session because it gives you a glimpse into those first few months as a family together. It was really hard to pick my favorites from this one. Not only because I’m biased (James and Piper are wonderful friends of ours), but also because Miss Evelyn is so stinking adorable! I love how their fur babies also decided to join in a bit. Scroll down below to see a sampling of what we captured!
Oh my goodness…I can’t believe this precious little girl is five already! I’ve been taking photos of this family for years now and I’ve had the pleasure of watching her grow up in front of my lens. To celebrate her fifth birthday, we had her ‘all about me’ photo session in a beautiful field of wildflowers. She did amazing as usual and I can’t believe how grown up she looks!
