Random fact: About 30% of our oh-so-awesome clients are destination wedding clients. They aren’t from San Antonio, but they come here to tie the knot. We were born and raised here and San Antonio and we’ve shot weddings here for about 8 years. So we are so proud to announce that San Antonio was just named “One of the best wedding destinations in the Southwest” by Destination Weddings & Honeymoons Magazine! Even better? They featured a few images from Allison & Allen’s rustic, Texas-style wedding! Pretty exciting stuff, you guys! :) The issue is on stands now, so definitely pick one up if you get a chance!

I’m so happy that the sun decided to show up for Natalie and David’s session. From the first moment, I could tell that these two were going to be so fun to photograph. The smiles and laughs lasted the whole session. It is such a great part of my job to get to know couples at this beautiful time in their lives, so in love and happy. Here are my favorites from their session.

Amanda & Brandon’s wedding flushmount album is here and we can’t help but share a few photos. :)

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 Amanda and Brandon’s album: They designed their very own one-of-a-kind flushmount album cover. They chose “Opaline” for the main leather and “Komodo Dragon” to add a fun texture. :-) (See all 40 leather choices here)

Every detail of Lexi & Jordan’s wedding was adorably perfect… right down to the monogrammed cocktail stirrers and throw pillows. :) Oh my goodness, yall… it was a photographers’ dream. We got to capture every moment and every perfect detail, and now we get to share them with you guys! (Best job ever? I think yes.) Future brides, get ready to load up your wedding Pinterest boards with lots of wedding goodness. :) Wedding and Event Designs by Pamela did an INCREDIBLE job.

The wedding ceremony and reception were held at the Southwest School of Art in downtown San Antonio… but first, let’s start with a few shots of Lexi getting ready at her charming home here in SA. :-) 1-Southwest-School-of-Art-Weddings 2-Southwest-School-of-Art-Weddings 3-Southwest-School-of-Art-Wedding 3-Southwest-School-of-Art-Weddings 4-Southwest-School-of-Art-Weddings 5-Southwest-School-of-Art-Weddings 6-Southwest-School-of-Art-Weddings 6a-Southwest-School-of-Art-Weddings 6b-Southwest-School-of-Art-Weddings 7-Southwest-School-of-Art-Weddings 8-Southwest-School-of-Art-Weddings 9-Southwest-School-of-Art-Weddings 10-Southwest-School-of-Art-Weddings

Lexi and Jordan 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 beforehand. 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! The photo above is of Lexi and Jordan sharing a special prayer together (before seeing each other). So sweet!! The photos below are from the moment Jordan saw his bride for the first time. :) For more info about doing a first look at your wedding, visit this link.
