Nicole + Chad . San Antonio, TX . Engagement

Nicole and I first met when she assisted me at a huge event while I was VERY pregnant. Nicole is about the sweetest person you could meet. She is always smiling and has such a kind heart. Fast-forward several years to today and she is getting married!! I am so happy for Nicole and her fiancé Chad! I was honored when she contacted me to capture their big day. We recently met up for their engagement session and had a great time :) The moments captured after the sun set are some of my favorites! Be sure and scroll down to the bottom so you don’t miss those. Congratulations Nicole and Chad! I’m so excited for your wedding!!

Jennifer + Marc . Austin, TX . Engagement

Once upon a time, Marc and Jennifer had dinner at a place called Hotel Ella. While they were enjoying their meal in this fine dining establishment, in walked a puppy dog. This was no ordinary puppy dog. This was their beloved Ella with an important delivery. She ran across the dining room and Marc pulled a bright and shiny bling from her neck, turning to Jennifer with an important question… and she said yes! So what better place to capture their engagement images, then to return to Hotel Ella! And, of course, include Miss Ella herself :)

Jennifer + Reid . Leon Springs, TX . Wedding

Jennifer and Reid were married at Leon Springs Dance Hall and had quite a celebration that followed. However, before the festivities began, I met them at the Eilan Hotel for their first sight. I love doing a first sight!! I was the bride 12 years ago that went to my photographer and said, “I do NOT want him to see me before I walk down that aisle!” Well she talked me into doing a first sight and I was so glad she did! Jennifer and Reid’s first sight is a perfect example of the moments that can happen when you are willing to see one another before the ceremony. Scroll down to their moment below and don’t miss all the party fun too! Congratulations Jennifer and Reid!! May your lives be filled with many many more beautiful moments ahead :)

Sarah + Will . San Antonio, TX . Rehearsal

Sarah and Will have an amazing wedding featured, but first I wanted to share their rehearsal dinner. The dinner took place at The Witte Museum with a fiesta flair… fun decor, great mariachi band, and laugh-out-loud toasts included! Sarah and Will had many people stand up and give toasts. After listening to their family and close friends speak, it was quite obvious that Sarah and Will are loved and have a lot of fun in life together! I couldn’t be more thrilled to have been there to capture these moments and the smiles! And don’t forget to check out their wedding here!
