Candace + Casey {Westin Riverwalk Hotel Wedding Reception, Arneson River Theatre Wedding Ceremony, San Antonio TX}

SO pumped to share Candace & Casey’s wedding photos, you guys! Candace and her family have been dear friends of ours for years (decades, actually), so when she called us about shooting her wedding, we were honored (and of course, crazy excited!) Candace and Casey’s wedding ceremony took place at La Villita at the Arneson River Theatre on the San Antonio river walk. Hellooooo, awesome venue! Their wedding reception took place in the Hidalgo Ballroom at the Westin Riverwalk Hotel (more on that later!) Katherine with Sweet August Events did an incredible job… every detail was perfection. Here are our favorite shots of the day. Enjoy!

One of our “Tips For Amazing Wedding Photos” is to relax and have fun in front of the camera. Candace, Casey, and their wedding party definitely did that! Yay for fun bridal party photos!!

Oh, and who could forget about this handsome little dude? Meet Candace’s son, Conner. Who really isn’t so little anymore… he turned ten just a few days before the wedding. :-)

Fun fact: A freak rain storm decided to make it’s way to downtown San Antonio in the middle of Candace and Casey’s ceremony. Notice the pastor’s shiny head an the rain drops on Conner’s suit. :-) Definitely made for a fun, memorable ceremony! Candace and Casey were all smiles, even during the storm. Love it! :-D

The Gray Family {Gruene, TX Photographer}

Fall is time for families. It was so fun to meet up with the Gray family in Gruene for their first ever family photos. Sweet baby was feeling under the weather, but still gave me some beautiful smiles. Here are my favorites from their session.

I’m in love with those cheeks!!

Elizabeth + Chris {Zaza Gardens Wedding Ceremony & Reception, San Antonio TX}

Elizabeth and Chris are friends of Lauren and John’s (clients of ours who tied the knot back in ’08…hard to believe it’s been 6 years!) It means so much when friends of past clients ask us to shoot their weddings… and we had a blast with Elizabeth and Chris! Their wedding and reception took place at Zaza Gardens here in San Antonio. But first, they got ready at one of our favorite hotels on the riverwalk – Hotel Contessa. Here are our favorite images from their big day!
