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...

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...

Chelsea + Walter | Married

Chelsea and Walter couldn’t have asked for better weather for their spring wedding. The sun was lowering slowly over the hill country venue these two chose for their rocking reception. They had a private ceremony the day before and decided to celebrate their one day anniversary with all their loved ones for a fun dinner and dance at The View at Eagle’s Nest. I got to document Chelsea and her...

Courtney + Roland | Married

You know those couples who are so much fun they radiate happiness in everything they do and everywhere they go? Well, that is Courtney and Roland! I met Courtney, along with several other potential brides, at the Bridal Fair in Victoria, TX. Bridal Fairs in general feel a bit like speed dating, if I’m honest. You are trying to make the best first impression with someone you only have a few minutes with and...

Singing in the Car = Wedding Photography?

boho-bride

There may be no real connection, but I made a connection in my mind. Let me explain. I am know for my car-singing-imitations. No, really! Ask my husband and he will vouch for me that I can go from Elton John to Brittney Spears to Axel Rose in on hour! There are some days I rock my “performances” and then there are days that…well, to put it nicely, I should’ve...

Kayla + Denver

I remember when Kayla’s mom reached out to me to inquire about an engagement session for her daughter and future son-in-law. The engagement sessions was so relaxed it made me feel like we didn’t meet for the first time a few minutes prior to shooting. Of course, the wedding day was just as fun and easy going! Yes, I shot the wedding while I was 7 months pregnant and HUGE, but...

San Antonio Wedding at Sunset Station | Alexis + Eli

Alexis was the VERY first person to receive a quote from me via Thumbtack. I had never heard of Thumbtack before another bride asked me about it and sparked my curiosity. I signed up, but was very weary of how it worked. When I saw a request for a San Antonio bride looking for a wedding photographer I poured over all the details (I wanted to make sure we would be...

Historic Texana Church | Edna, TX | Sweet Simple Sunflower Wedding | Renee + Jimmy

simple-sunflower-rustic-wedding

As the title suggests this wedding was sweet and simple, but there was so much more to it than that!! This was a split ceremony/reception wedding and because not everyone who was going to attend the ceremony would be able to travel to the reception location (Gruene Dancehall – because they wanted their first dance on the oldest dance hall in Texas) the couple had a reception like dinner for their...

Cuero, TX | St. Michael’s Rustic Wedding | Cassie + Eric

st. michael's texas rustic wedding

It all happened on bright and sunny spring day in Cuero at St. Michael’s Catholic Church. Cassie was already surrounded by her closest friends and family tucked away so Eric wouldn’t accidentally see her before the ceremony started. Typically girls get the reputation on running late to get ready, but it was actually the guys we had to wait on for this wedding. Not enough to make anything run late, but...
