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!
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.
Brittany and Drew were married in New Braunfels on November 16, 2019. Both their ceremony and reception took place near the center of downtown where not hours the day before, there was a large fire on the property where Wursfest is held each year. Quite literally…right across the street from the Knights of Columbus Hall!! Luckily, all was good and this did not effect the day’s festivities.
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 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!
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.
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.
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.
