The Gerasimon Family

I shot Ann and Gregg’s engagement session a few years ago, so I was so excited to get to meet William. He is too cute and had lots of sweet smiles for me. Here are my favorites from their session.

Ben + Emily’s Flushmount Wedding Album!

Anytime we receive a couples’ flush mount album in the mail, it’s exciting. :-) Ben and Emily’s album is here and we are psyched to share a few photos with you guys today.

Flush mount albums are so much fun to design because each detail is customized… from the size of the album, to the photos inside, to the leather cover on the outside (there are over 40 leathers to choose from). Emily and Ben chose this oh-so-cool leather combo for their cover… The main blue leather is called “Wedgewood” and the brown accent is called “Komodo Dragon”.

Tate & Star {Westin Riverwalk Hotel Wedding Ceremony & Reception, San Antonio TX}

Star and Tate’s wedding ceremony and reception was held at the gorgeous Westin Riverwalk Hotel in downtown San Antonio. One amazing venue and one totally-in-love (not to mention ridiculously-good-looking) couple. :-) Star did not stop smiling all day… which made our job super easy and lots of fun! Here are our favorites from their big day!

Star and Tate got married at exactly 7:07pm… sunset. :-) Because they wanted lots of natural-light portraits (and we got lots of those!!), they saw each other before the ceremony. We love first looks! It’s such a sweet moment between the bride and groom. :-) The photos above are from the moment Star and Tate first saw each other. Gotta love the look on Star’s face! *chills* (For more info about doing a first look at your wedding, click here.)

Elizabeth & Chris {Bar Engagement Photos}

I LOVE when the location for an engagement session is personal to the couple. I met up with Elizabeth & Chris at the bar where they had their first date. So perfect! We had so much fun getting to know each other while they enjoyed a couple of drinks (highly recommended to relax you for your session!). They are getting married THIS weekend and we are so excited to be a part of their big day.
-Jenn

My favorite!!
Elizabeth says she likes “dark and moody” photos, but I wasn’t getting that vibe from her at all :) Elizabeth, you are too cute!
Thank you random person for leaving your bike there. I love this little spot we found!
Cheers!!

Sarah Decorvet-Foley - LOVE! Liz, you look fantastic! What a sweet setting for engagement shots!
