What a day! Cody and Destiny’s wedding out at Rackler Ranch was an unforgettable one to photograph. The day was such a whirlwind and there were so many great details and things happening all at once– it was hard to capture it all! The property had so much to offer. From the amazing areas attached to the reception hall for the couple and wedding party to get ready, to the ceremony spot out by a pond, everything was carefully planned out and looked amazing. I’m thankful that we also had time to watch a beautiful sunset out by the water where we took some stunning portraits of Destiny and Cody as man and wife.
It was a hot afternoon when I met Destiny near downtown Gruene, Texas to take her bridal portraits. Even though it was pretty crowded, we found some great textures to feature her dress. From the rustic wooden steps that highlighted her gorgeous train, to the tucked away little nooks with amazing backlight, it was all dreamy. I had a great time walking around with Destiny, her mom and her grandmother finding the best locations.
Olivia and Michael were married outside facing a beautiful textured cliffside and waterfall at Remi’s Ridge of Hidden Falls. Their navy and burgundy theme was the perfect accent to the lush greens surrounding the property.
Due to COVID, I wasn’t able to work with Denise on her wedding day; however, I did get the pleasure of capturing her bridals! We met at the ever beautiful Gruene Estate (which happens to be one of my all-time favorites) to take her portraits.
Timeless and effortless! Olivia rocked her bridal session like a seasoned pro when I met her out at the divine Remi’s Ridge at Hidden Falls. We were a little nervous leading up to when we started shooting that afternoon because it had been raining for most of the day. Luckily, it cleared up just in time and we had some nice open light to capture her portraits. It was really hard for me to pick my favorites for this one. With the vibrant greenery surrounding the waterfall and the great textures all around, it loved them all. Not to mention that Olivia looked stunning in every photo. Even the bridal suite with the surrounding mirrors on almost every wall was a perfect backdrop to showcase her beautiful dress.
From the first time I had the meet and greet with Valerie and her family before they selected me as their photographer, I knew this was going to be a fun wedding. Then, after getting to work with both Chaz and Valerie for their engagement photos, I really new it would be perfect!
‘m so glad I finally get to share these! Waiting to post bridals is such a hard thing to do for us photographers 🙂 For this session, Valerie scheduled her bridals at the picturesque Chandelier of Gruene. Thankfully, we were blessed with a gorgeous afternoon and sunset. It was the perfect backdrop for Valerie’s elegant details and beautiful lace dress. It was hard to narrow down my favorites (as usual lol – I just love weddings!). And of course, Valerie looked stunning in them all. From in front of the
Country…Coastal…Confetti…this one was fun! It’s not hard to see how in love Lashelle and Jerome are while scrolling through their engagement photos. I had the absolute best time with these two during their session! Before we decided to take the photos at their house, both of them asked me for advice for how we should find the perfect location to take pictures. My guidance to them was that the location really doesn’t matter as long as we can find a way to showcase them as a couple. A few days later, Lashelle contacted me with a few ideas and told me that they wanted to set up some personalized scenes in their backyard–and it all turned out magically!
This was a great session. The Tollackson family never disappoints! They welcomed me into their home recently to document the newest arrival of their third boy, Henry. I had the best time joking around with big brothers Levi and Westin. They did so well for their age and our time went by in a flash. This family is just too adorable for words.
I met Kenzie and Cody out at the phenomenal new wedding venue, The Weinberg at Wixon Valley, in College Station, Texas this summer. It was definitely a WIN-WIN for me because not only was the property a dream, but Kenzie and Cody were one of the best couples to work with! We had so much fun trying out different poses and waiting for that gorgeous sun to set over the vineyards.
Kenzie has amazing taste and she was ultra prepared for their session with a lot of different outfit selections to match the different textures around The Weinburg. These two are seriously the sweetest and I’m so excited to see what these two have planned for their December nuptials later this year.
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.
