Southwest School of Art Wedding – Adriana & Tom

By | Weddings | No Comments

One of my favorite wedding venues in San Antonio is the Southwest School of Art. It offers a beautiful setting for a special event that won’t soon be forgotten whether you want outdoors, indoors, or a combination of the two. Every wedding we’ve done at SSA has been unique, and I think that’s part of why I love it so much. Adriana & Tom live in Seattle, far away from either of their families, so they decided to plan a destination wedding in San Antonio and they wanted it to be fun and relaxed… what a perfect place for a chill wedding, in the beautiful courtyards of the Southwest School of Art.

Of course, mother nature couldn’t make the day tooooo relaxed, so there was quite a lot of rain, but we waited it out and were rewarded with the most beautiful light you could ever hope for. I captured some of my top favorite ceremony images at Adriana & Tom’s wedding, not just because of the gorgeous light, but because of all the joy and laughter, the happy tears and sweet moments.

I hope you enjoy these images as much as I enjoyed creating them. Congratulations, Adriana & Tom, and thank you once again for entrusting to capture these special memories.

King Williams Backyard Wedding – Cristal & Patrick

By | Weddings | No Comments

Small, intimate weddings have a special place in my heart. Cristal & Patrick decided to have their family-focused wedding at their home in the historic King Williams district in San Antonio, TX. There were less than 20 guests and nearly half of them were children. The day included an early afternoon ceremony followed by lunch while mariachis played nearby, a bit of piñata smashing, a siesta (hanging out at the pool or going down the street to their BNB for a nap), and then a private chef from Austin prepared dinner and put on a bit of a show.

This wedding was published in San Antonio Magazine (view the online version).

Brooklyn Wedding First Look – Teaser

By | Weddings | No Comments

It was so much fun to be a part of Keri & Justin’s New York wedding, well to be more specific, their Brooklyn wedding. Their ceremony was at the St. Charles Borromeo Church and reception at The Glasserie – but you’ll have to wait to see the goodies from the rest of their day. This is just a quickie post to share one of my favorite things about weddings, the first look!

Keri took some convincing that she should see her groom before the ceremony, but as has always been the case for our brides, she was so happy she did. Doing a first look isn’t just about having an opportunity for great portraits in beautiful light, it’s about having some time in [relative] private with the person you’re going to spend the rest of your life with, on your crazy hectic wedding day. It’s such a special moment when you see each other in private instead of in front of a hundred or more friends and family… you can tell your bride how gorgeous she looks and how excited you are to be marrying her, you can embrace… it really changes the mood in a beautiful way and puts the couple at ease. And then there’s the fact that you get to enjoy cocktail hour with the friends and family who have come from near and far to see you!

First looks are awesome, and pretty much everyone should seriously consider doing it for their wedding. We chose a location near where they wanted to do bridal party portraits that we felt would be private, feel like NY, and would make for timeless images. Now look at these two beautiful love birds.

Today we’ve got an unusually long wedding-teaser for you, because we’ve been dying to photograph a wedding at Lost Mission in Spring Branch, TX for so long that it’s just impossible to wait until we’ve edited everything to begin sharing! Kimberly & Nathan tied the knot just a few days ago, and MT and I just want to say thank you so much for making us a part of your special day. This is truly one of the sweetest couples we have ever had the pleasure of working with.

Children at Weddings

By | Weddings | No Comments

Allow me to set the scene… We’re at the beautiful Immaculate Heart of Mary Church in the heart of downtown San Antonio, TX. At this point we’re right in the middle of the ceremony, the bride and groom are on the altar. A few minutes before, the flower girl knocked the basket of flower petals over on this chair. Obviously the only thing to do at this point was to squeeze through and pick them up one by one. This one gives me a big smile everytime.

Children at Weddings

By | Weddings | No Comments

It’s that special time of year where children are at the front of our minds as we think of fun ways to show them we love them with gifts, activities, and general silliness (elf on a shelf, anyone?). I thought it would be nice to dedicate the next handful of blog posts to the little ones who can create such fun little moments at weddings as they’re about to be on break from school and you might need a reminder of just how adorable they can be!

In this image, we’re just minutes before the ceremony and the excitement is clearly building for these precious little angels.
