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.
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.
