Briana’s Bridal Portraits {The 1850’s Settlement}

I met up with the beautiful Briana and her mom at The 1850’s Settlement in Bulverde. It is such a pretty property and we had so much fun exploring all the nooks and crannies :) Here are my favorites from her session.

Clara + Alan {McNay Art Museum Wedding Reception, Christ Episcopal Church Wedding Ceremony, San Antonio TX}

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.

Leah & Brian’s Engagement Photos

I met up with Leah & Brian on a beautiful, breezy fall day. The heat hasn’t quite left us here in Texas, but the breeze kept us cool. They are such a cute couple and so easy going, just happy to be in each other’s company. Here are my favorites from their session.

Katie & Rowdy’s Engagement Photos

I’ve been doing so many sunset sessions that I’ve forgotten how beautiful it is in the morning. I met up with Katie and Rowdy in Gruene, TX for their engagement photos. The light was the perfect golden glow and we were nearly the only souls in sight. We ended the session by dipping our toes in the river. Here are my favorites from their session.

Velia - What lovely photos. You did a great job capturing the love and spirits of the couple. The location and lighting enhanced the photos even more so. Best wishes to the couple and continued success to you.

Deborah Foster - Magic! Says Texas and Love and Fun and Outdoors and GOD IS GOOD…all the photos!
Great, to say the least.
