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.
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.
We had grey skies all morning but not a drop fell on us during the outdoor ceremony with a GORGEOUS cascading Texas Hill Country view. The reception area was also conveniently located right there onsite I loved how one side was open to the beautiful landscape while still being covered overhead. It was a fun night with good food, laughter and lots of dancing.
Working with both Justin and Erica for the first time was a blast! I met them at their wedding venue, the Happy H Ranch in Comfort, on a beautiful January afternoon to explore the property and take their engagement photos. Pulling into the main entrance, I was met by curious deer and a sweeping landscape topped with a large cross at the crest of a hill. The owners were incredibly accommodating and allowed us to meander around the event space and even took us up to the cross to captured a gorgeous sunset.
I’ve been able to photograph Alan and Megan now for several years. I was blessed to be there to photograph Alan’s surprise proposal, their engagements and several family sessions — but my favorite by far was their intimate wedding ceremony under the trees at sunset! It was a beautiful fall day and the simplicity of the hay bails arranged under the trees at the La Vernia C of C Hall was absolutely perfect for their ceremony. Everything was timed just right so the sunset became a gorgeous backdrop to the entire event as Alan and Megan spoke their vows and were pronounced man and wife.
Arron and Krystal were married on a beautiful sunny day, November 17, 2018, at The Legacy event venue in Jacksonville, Texas. This was a great one to photograph! Krystal made for a stunning bride in her dress with delicate lace details and intricate beading. The blue and burgundy accents in the florals were perfectly balanced and I also adored the vintage cameras and props used as the centerpieces for the reception. So pretty!
Not only are Ben and Caitlin super laid back and sweet, but they have some awesome family and friends as well. Their navy and rose gold themed wedding was styled so beautifully and it was a blast to attend.
Nic and Katie’s wedding hosted at the beautiful Gruene Estate was such a fun wedding. The property is absolutely breathtaking with access to an open air chapel that is walking distance to the party barn. They even had convenient houses nearby for the wedding party to get ready. We were blessed with a beautiful day lacking any rain or thunderstorms. With two individuals so laid back and sweet such as Nic and Katie, I knew it would be a great evening. Katie even walked down the aisle barefoot! From special touches like her father’s hat, blue diamonds and delicious cupcakes, this was definitely one wedding to remember. Everyone had a blast dancing well into the evening leading up to the couple’s departure in an amazing Corvette. Scroll down to see a sampling from Nic and Katie’s special day. There is a lot to see, so keep scrolling!
Ryan and Mary Catherine’s ceremony was held at the Our Lady of Grace Catholic Church in LaCoste, Texas —which was beautiful both inside and out. With a yellow and royal blue color scheme with accompanying Lego accents, you couldn’t help but feel bright and cheery all day long. The amount of love and affection towards the couple from both sides was palpable. Family and friends assisted with the decorations, baking and clean up throughout the night turning the hall on the church property a great place to host the reception. A great band, lots of laughter and dancing made it one to remember for sure.
Congratulations to Mr. and Mrs. Vogt! Not only was this wedding a fun event to photograph, the details of this wedding were ABSOLUTELY stunning. The Branded T Ranch in Kendalia, Texas was the perfect venue to host Caitlin and Cody’s ceremony and reception. The southwestern theme including neutral undertones accented with pops of orange, turquoise and green was seamlessly and thoughtfully integrated throughout every aspect of the evening. Everywhere one could look, there was something more alluring to see. Feathers, succulents, cactus, antlers, geodes, jaw-dropping floral arrangements…need I say more?!? Beautiful styling aside, this really was a FUN wedding. Cody and Caitlin were so incredibly sweet and great to work with. There was never a dull moment and the dancing went well into the night–all the way up to the couple’s unique exit where family and friends showered them with fresh lavender. It was a messy, albeit very pleasant smelling, exit! Scroll down below to see a sampling from the images we captured that day. There is a lot to see!
I was so excited when Caitlin told me she’d like to take her bridal portraits at the Polley Mansion near Sutherland Springs, Texas. This historical gem dating back to 1847 is actually located just miles from my hometown. With the original 18″ stone walls still intact, every room in the two story house tell a story. And don’t get me started on the beautiful textures!
I can’t begin to express the gratitude I feel for having the ability to photograph amazing families, couples and individuals near my hometown. This was a busy year! From lifestyle newborn sessions to high school and college seniors, maternity sessions, anniversaries, weddings and beyond, I was able to work with hundreds of individuals across all ages.
Bridal sessions are one of my favorites because they give every bride the opportunity to dress up and take beautiful portraits without the stress of the big day. Randi drove down with her daughter, mom and maid of honor to the Seguin area for her bridal session. We had a relaxing afternoon walking around and searching for beautiful light. Scroll down to see a sampling of what we captured!
It was so much fun shooting Zac and Caitlin’s wedding. They held their ceremony and reception at the Garden Heights Wedding and Events venue in San Antonio, TX. Lead by the father of the groom, the ceremony was heartfelt and absolutely beautiful. The little white chapel was the perfect setting for Zac and Caitlin to share their personal vows with one another. After a quick round of family portraits, the party started in the reception area. This was one of my favorite receptions to date because you could tell how much fun everyone was having – and actually dancing!
Congratulations to Mr. & Mrs. Winchester! Mitch and Jen were joined together in marriage at St. Paul Lutheran Church in Hondo, TX on January 21, 2017. The reception followed at the Medina County Fair Hall and it was a much enjoyed party by all. Delicious food, sweet treats, good drinks and great dancing made it a party to remember.
I’m so glad that I can finally share some of the bridals taken before Jennifer became Mrs. Winchester! It was overcast the afternoon we took them, but we managed to take advantage of a few rays of sun that peeked through here and there.
Wow! As a busy mom and wife it’s hard to imagine how it was possible to have had so many great sessions this past year. As many of you know, photography isn’t my full time gig, but it is my love, passion and all consuming hobby. In 2016, I was very fortunate to have a broad spectrum of clients and occasions. From newborns, maternity, extended families, high school seniors, engagements/weddings, prom and more, I met so many awesome people and started getting more repeat clients coming back to me for the second and third year in a row. I feel really blessed to be able to have this outlet for my creativity and that so many have trusted me to capture these special moments.
Simple and stunning. April and Jake were married at the Los Encinos Hill Country Estate in San Antonio, Texas on Saturday, June 11.
Emily and Jordan’s wedding at the Driskill Hotel in Austin, Texas was everything I like my photography to embody. Simple. Stunning. Timeless.
