Star’s Bridal Portraits {Westin Riverwalk Bridals}

Star was so so fun to photograph! She is so laid-back and most importantly, she was SO excited to be in her wedding dress. Her joy for this special time in her life shines through in each image. Thank you, Star, for choosing us to be a part of your special day!!

The Liddell Family {Gruene, TX Family Photographer}

I love family sessions and I L-O-V-E family sessions with big kids! These two sweeties were so much fun. Here are my many favorites from their session in Gruene, Texas.
-Jenn

We ended the session with a little ice cream at the general store. Love these fun childhood moments and those sweet smiles!

Jill - Can’t decide which of my dear friend Amy’s pics I love the most. Claire and ice cream. No. The kids kissing Amy. No. The solo picture of Will. No. All of them! :)

Amy L - Love, love, love! Thank you!!

Briana + Scott {Hofmann Ranch Wedding Ceremony & Reception, Castroville TX}

Briana and Scott’s wedding ceremony and reception were held at the adorable Hofmann Ranch in Castroville, Texas… one of our faaaaavorite venues! We are in LOVE with this wedding… seriously, in love. :-)  We loved the dress, the fun color scheme, the venue – everything. It was nearly impossible to choose our favorite images, but somehow we did it. Here they are!
PS – Get ready for LOTS of amazing wedding details and decor… thanks to Stacey DeWine and her fantastical team at The Panache Event Group. They are the bestest!!

Here it is, our favorite moment of the day! Scott and Briana saw each other before the ceremony so we’d have lots of time for photos (and you’ll see… we got LOTS!)  Before the big reveal, they read letters from the other person (above). Then, the big moment! (below) We LOVE “first looks” and we highly recommend them. :-) For more info about doing a first look at your wedding, click here!

We are so excited to share Clara and Alan’s wedding photos today! Their wedding ceremony took place at Christ Episcopal Church here in San Antonio, and their gorgeous wedding reception took place at The McNay Art Museum (oh, how we love The McNay!) Diana Boucher, their uh-mazing coordinator, knocked it out of the park with this one… if you are looking for a coordinator, Diana is your girl!! Here are our favorite images from their big day. Enjoy! :)

Clara and Alan wanted to head straight to their cocktail hour when the ceremony was over, so they saw each other before the ceremony. Here are a few shots from their first look (above). We love first looks!! To read why, click here.
