When I was asked to travel to Colorado to photograph my sister-in-law’s wedding in Estes Park, I was thrilled! Rachel is the little sister I never had growing up so of course I was honored to take on the task. This was also a great opportunity for us to get away for some quality time and to see our family during all of the craziness brought on by the COVID pandemic.
It’s been a while since I’ve been able to work with the Tollackson family and I’ve missed them! Levi was still a baby back then –but now he’s waiting on the arrival of his new brother or sister (it will be a surprise!). For this session (during our new COVID era), I met the Tollacksons out at their property so we could still practice proper social distancing.
We were finally able to reschedule Celina and Brett’s engagement session after a few missed tries due to the craziness of the 2020 pandemic sweeping the nation. And…it was worth the wait! To stay away from public places, I met this sweet pair out on our family property in La Vernia, Texas. Sessions out there are always my favorite because I get to showcase some of the gorgeous hidden spots on the land where I grew up. We were blessed with pretty light and no mosquitoes this evening — but, we did have to combat some CRAZY wind bursts and grasshoppers jumping all around. Both Celina and Brett were troopers and we had fun trying to find ways to keep Celina’s beautiful wrap dress from blowing away while photographing.
I’m thrilled to be sharing these images as it was my first wedding to photograph after the necessary hiatus of pretty much everything due to COVID-19. And let just me say… I’ve missed this! Sam and Valerie were finally able to have the wedding of their dreams at the gorgeous property of Texas Old Town in Kyle, Texas. After months and months of planning, they luckily did not have to wait too long after their original wedding date to host the event.
I’m so glad that I finally get to share this bridal session! We had to reschedule several times due to the craziness that COVID-19 brought about; but, thankfully, we were able to meet up on Valerie’s original wedding date to finally capture these photos. It was a picturesque evening. A little hot, but no heavy wind and a pretty sunset. The best of what Texas has to offer! I met Valerie, her mom and her bridal squad at a gorgeous property in Boerne, Texas and we couldn’t have found a better place if we tried. With Longhorns roaming freely, rustic outbuildings and wooden fences, it fit perfectly with Valerie’s rustic vibe. Scroll down below to see a sampling from her favorite poses captured!
During these crazy times, let’s take a minute to throw some love to all the engaged couples out there — and those who are planning weddings. I have the most amazing couples and though we’ve had to open our calendars and move many of the events, I’m looking forward to the day we can have big gatherings and celebrations once again.
Oh how I love these photos! Hunter and Rob did amazing during their engagement session — and let me tell you, it was hard to narrow down our favorites. Engagement sessions are always one of my favorites because they give me the opportunity to really get to know my couples a little better before the wedding. So far, I’ve had the most amazing luck at this particular location. I’d say it absolutely was yet another magical experience on the big granite dome dominating the center space of the Enchanted Rock State Natural Area.
Cody and Kasie’s navy and burgundy themed wedding at The Allen Farmhaus in New Braunfels was a blast. I say this all the time, but I have been so fortunate that the best couples have booked me over the years.
I met Valerie and Chaz out at The Historic Pearl in San Antonio on Super Bowl Sunday this February. We had a great time walking about and finding the myriad of beautiful textures in and around the property.
I love when I get to take a short break from weddings and photograph senior portraits! For Grace’s senior pics, we met out at the beautiful Historic Pearl in San Antonio, Texas. A lot of people choose this spot for photos for good reason. There is so much variety and beautiful light/textures in every corner of this place! For a January session, we were lucky that the weather was quite pleasant. A little cool but no wind and beautiful light. You can’t ask for much more.
Nick and Perla tied the knot at the Western Sky Wedding and Event Venue in Bulverde, Texas among family, friends and a clear blue January sky. The emerald green, white and gold theme was perfectly incorporated throughout every detail! I was especially grateful that I was able to capture a small part of their wedding (I was only there for three hours!) because I was also there to capture Nick’s proposal to Perla last summer.
I absolutely loved spending time with Brandon and Lauren during their engagement session at the Enchanted Rock State Natural Area. We had the best time walking around the enormous granite dome and finding some amazing pockets of light. This was the second December in a row that I was asked to photograph engagements here —and once again, we were blessed with 70+ degree weather and no heavy winds. It was warm, but all in all an idyllic setting for a magical evening.
