I met with Chelsea and Daniel on the Faust Street Bridge in New Braunfels for an early morning engagement session. It was so humid, but these two didn’t let it faze them! Thankfully, they were able to dip their feet in the Guadalupe river to cool off for a bit. It doesn’t hurt that it makes for an excellent backdrop, as well!  The love and playfulness between these two is contagious!  You can’t help but smile when you’re around them. This bridge and river means a lot to them because it’s where Daniel proposed to Chelsea. They went kayaking together in the river and they happened to stop on a little island near the bridge and that’s where Daniel proposed to her!

I am so excited for their wedding in March! Thanks so much Daniel and Chelsea for being our tour guides around New Braunfels and Gruene!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Hazel and Conner married on the coldest day of April (and nobody was complaining! I mean, hey, it’s Texas) at the Sisterdale Dancehall in Boerne, Texas. They said their vows under the most gorgeous oak trees overlooking the river. The mint, coral, and burlap touches in the decorations and flowers were stunning! These two were surrounded by the most amazing wedding party and family! They all pitched in with decorating and went the extra mile to help the couple enjoy their day to the fullest. Also, these guys had some amazing dancers amongst their friends and family. Hands down one of the most fun receptions we have ever photographed!

Hazel and Conner did something really cool during their ceremony- they washed each other’s hands in lieu of unity sand or tying of the knot, etc. That was the first time I had ever seen a bride and groom do that and I thought it was a wonderful idea!

I may or may not have teared up when Hazel started her walk down the aisle to Conner… It’s so fulfilling to be there to photograph their engagement, see the love that they have for one another, and then see them say their vows on one of the most important day of their lives! Did I mention that I love weddings?? Thank you again, Hazel and Conner for letting me capture your special day! Y’all are wonderful together!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I am so beyond proud to blog these photos. Not really because of the photos themselves, but because of who is in them. Behold! My dearest friend since first grade- an amazing, beautiful, and strong woman! I have seen her overcome many traumatic events that should break a person. I have seen her never quit at anything until she got it right. I have seen her make mistakes and make fun of herself for it. I have seen her achieve her lifelong passions and revel in her success. I often reflect back on the time when I thought I had lost you and I am so thankful now that I get to see you build your dream from the ground up. You are an inspiration! Love you long time, Mea Mea.

Now that I’m finished with the sappy stuff 😉 Meagan graduated from Sam Houston State University with an Animal Science degree. She is the owner and breeder at  Dean Quarter Horses. She has her largest crop of foals this year which include Western Pleasure and Hunt Seat prospects!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I have known Jacob since middle school and Katy and I went to the same church as kids! It’s almost surreal to see all the people you grew up with having little ones of their own. Carson was the most relaxed and sleepy newborn I have ever photographed! I normally prepare four hours for photographing newborns for feeding and changing, etc. We were done in two hours! Not to mention, his “big brother” Sammy (the adorable yorkie) was also ridiculously photogenic and posed happily for every shot! Katy had everything in Carson’s nursery decorated perfectly- I love the natural, outdoor style with a pop of color!

Thank you, Jacob and Katy, for letting me photograph Carson and your first few days of parenthood! God has truly blessed your family with such a wonderful little boy!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I’m finally catching up on all of my amazing spring weddings this year and I’m kicking it off with the Lilo’s! J.R. and Crystal had the most elegant and classic style wedding. They married at the Rosenberg Skyroom  at the University of the Incarnate Word overlooking downtown San Antonio. You could see the Tower of the Americas from just about every window- talk about having the best view while saying your vows! Crystal’s maid of honor went above and beyond to design the ceremony and reception decor. The gorgeous sequins and abundance of flowers were truly a stunning sight. The Lilo’s also had the best wedding party! They were so fun in posing for group photos and busting some moves on the dance floor! Also, I found out later that evening that J.R. and Crystal share the same birthday! How cool is that?

Thank you so much, J.R. and Crystal, for sharing your special day with us!
