Victoria + Matt’s Flushmount & Parent Albums!

Victoria & Matt’s wedding flushmount album and parent albums came in a while back, and today we are (finally!) sharing a few photos of them.

The scoop on flushmount albums: A flushmount album tells the story of your wedding day with custom-designed pages, big photos and panoramic layouts. When opened, flush mount albums lay completely flat so each layout is seamless. The pages are thick (1/8″), the leather options are endless and (most importantly) all the cool kids are getting one. :-)

The scoop on parent albums: A parent album is a smaller version of a flush mount wedding album. Even though the photos and page designs are the same, the outside cover (and cover photo) can be customized to match your parents (or grandparents!) personal style.

The scoop on Victoria & Matt’s albums: The rich, brown leather on their parent albums is called “Fox Downs.” Victoria & Matt added a photo cutout to each cover and TA-DA! … custom albums that fit their parents’ personal style. :-)

But who can forget about Victoria & Matt’s personal style? :-) They designed their very own one-of-a-kind flushmount album cover. They chose “Dulce de Leche” for their cover (one of our most popular leather choices!). :-)

Christie + Jayson {Texas Hill Country Wedding}

We first met up with Christie and Jayson for their hill country engagement session a few months back (if you missed it, see those photos here). These two brought that same Texas charm to their gorrrrrrgeous wedding at Jayson’s family’s ranch. We are SO excited to share these images. Like, so SO excited. :-)  Here are our favorites from their big day. Enjoy! :-)

Christie & Jayson got married just after sunset. Because they wanted natural-light portraits, they saw each other before the ceremony. The 2 shots above are from the moment Jayson saw Christie for the first time. We love first looks! It’s such a sweet, intimate moment between the bride and groom where they can have a few minutes of alone time and calm their nerves. :-) (For more info about doing a first look at your wedding, click here.)

Karen + Ross {Scenic Loop Cafe Wedding and Reception, San Antonio TX}

Karen and Ross tied the knot at the cute and quaint Scenic Loop Cafe here in San Antonio. We are in love with these images (in love love LOVE). We loved Karen’s dress, the bright colors, the venue – everything. It was nearly impossible to choose our favorite images from the day, but somehow we pulled it off. Here they are. Enjoy :-)

Karen and Ross wanted to head straight to their reception after the ceremony (instead of spending lots of time taking photos!), so they decided to see each other before the ceremony. This way, we were able to take plenty of bride/groom and wedding party photos AND they didn’t miss one minute of their reception. Win/win! These photos (above and below) were taken when Ross saw Karen for the first time in her dress. *Chills!* For more info about doing a first look at your wedding, visit this link.
