Amber + Jared | Married

Amber was surrounded by her bridesmaids and some other close family members when I arrived. She was calm, collected and 95% finished her transformation into a blushing bride with the help of Macy for hair and makeup. I took her dress and other details outside to photograph with lots of natural light! There was a threat of rain for this October wedding weekend, but I never got the vibe that it...

Leah + Jessie | 10th Anniversary at Downtown San Antonio

Leah and Jessie met while they were both attending UTSA their sophomore year at the ripe age of 19 years old. So is it any wonder that San Antonio has played such a major part in their lives? It all started with their very first date on the Riverwalk downtown. They became an official couple and dated until Jessie proposed the June before their 3rd anniversary. They got married just...

First Home-versary

One month ago we celebrated our first anniversary of moving into our home in Seguin, TX! YAY! Jacob and I have moved 7 times (not including the 2 times we were living somewhere temporarily) within 7 years. Moving is the worst and we should be experts by now, but we are still no good at moving. We have lost lots of random items along the way and I don’t even...

Elly + Hutch | Married

Everyone was invited to a Labor Day weekend gathering, but little did they know it would turn into a wedding! Elly and Hutch surprised everyone, with the exception of myself, and told them with less than 24 hours notice that they were going to be exchanging vows that day. I was just glad that by the time I arrived everyone knew, because I think having a photographer show up would...

Julie + Daniel

I typically smile while editing the photos for blog post, but in the case of this specific post it was a bit different. I was humming the whole time! Hall and Oats’s song “You make my dreams come true” It is so upbeat and full of fun contagious goodness, just like my couple. Julie’s sister had entered her to win an engagement session with me at the Wedding Fair Show a...

Jenny + Matt | Married

The Texas sun was really trying to out shine this summer wedding. That meant little to the bride and groom! They were so excited to get married they only mentioned it was broiling hot maybe a handful of times. I know you may not think that is an achievement, but believe you me it most certainly is an achievement! Jenny and Matt made this a green and eco friendly wedding...

The Story of Amber Elaine Photography

My passion for photography started long before that! Back with disposable cameras really, but it wasn’t until my very own wedding that my love for photography would come back into my life in a very real way. I knew that I wanted most of the budget to go towards photography because the photos would last a lifetime! While searching for the photographer I would entrust to document our most important...

Karina + Cian | Chapel Dulcinea Austin, TX Summer Wedding

Karina and Cian come from completely different backgrounds. No, like really, she is Brazilian and he is Irish! I am not sure how they both ended up in Texas and meeting each other in the same Kick Boxing class, but they did and the rest is history. They may have different cultures, but this couple brings out the best in each other and they mesh SO well. It was really...

Hannah + Patrick | Engaged

houston tx summer engagement

When I met Hannah for the first time I could tell right away there was something about her that made her a perfect fit for my brother-in-law. Here 3 years later he popped the question and they are ready to start their life together as husband and wife. I am SO honored that they ask me to photograph their wedding. I would’ve been a bit salty if they didn’t, but...
