Jane + Wolfgang . San Antonio, TX . Engagement

Jane + Wolfgang traveled from different parts of the country to meet me downtown San Antonio. Jane lives in Colorado and Wolfgang lives in California and is originally from Germany. The long-distance thing is coming to an end as they close in on their big day! I enjoyed getting to know these two as we wandered the streets of SA. Jane and Wolfgang met at a Cognitive Neuroscience Conference. The highly intelligent duo is also very funny, down-to-earth and easy to be around. I had a great time getting to know Jane and Wolfgang and I look forward to their big day which happens to be just around the corner!!

Sarah + Will . San Antonio, TX . Engagement

I met Sarah and Will at the San Jose Mission in San Antonio. The missions are so full of history, beauty and texture. Sarah and Will thought it would be the perfect spot for their session! We had a great time wandering around the mission and getting to know one another. These two are so sweet, think very highly of one another and fun to be around :) I am really looking forward to their big day!

Monika + Steve . San Antonio, TX . Wedding

Monika and Steve have known each other since their childhood. Steve was good friends with Monika’s older brother. However, it wasn’t until years later that they were reconnected. They connected over the Tour de France, then took a trip through Europe and into Paris together. It was atop the famous Ferris Wheel when Steve asked Monika to marry him. How romantic! Fast-forward to the wedding day. Monika did not miss a thing when it came to details. She incorporated the bikes, the ferris wheel, the Eiffel Tower and other french places they traveled. They had an intimate celebration with their closest friends and family. It was an evening full of relaxation and enjoyment! Thank you for including me :) Congratulations to Monika and Steve!

Abby + Mark . San Antonio, TX . Wedding Part I

Buckle up, this one had too much goodness to fit into just one blog entry! I had the pleasure of meeting Abby back in 2009 when I covered her debutante party in Corpus Christi, TX. You can see those images on my old blog – here. When Abby contacted me announcing she was engaged (see engagement session here) and wondered if I was available to cover her wedding, I was thrilled and honored! Abby has an infectious smile and both her and her family are wonderfully fun to be around. Abby and Mark met in England where Mark lives. They compliment each other, both with an enjoyable nature and a taste for adventure. The wedding celebration spoke to their fun-loving, laid back personalities done to the finest. Mark dressed to honor his Scottish heritage, while Abby started in a more traditional gown, then later partied the night away in a sexy little gold number. Love their style! Congratulations you two!! Thank you so much for including me! I wish you both the best life has to offer :)
