Vasquez Family

When Shawn called me up and mentioned that the ever growing Vasquez dude-clan would all be reunited over the Thanksgiving holiday, I COULD NOT turn down the opportunity to create these special bonding moments for them by adding a classic SNP touch to their annual Christmas photos a la lumberjack vibes! Tis the season for beautiful family pics! Merry Christmas Y'all!

Downtown & Upbeat

When Jessica & Jarod called me up and said they were ready to take their engagement photos but were looking for something a little more fitting to their style, we immediately began discussing wardrobe, location and YES, even Pinterest lists! (for inspo only of course :)

I was so excited to step away from weddings but still capture the essence of an ever growing love story that started many many moons ago. This session was a little different and refreshing and I couldn't wait to share these with y'all!!  Huge Thanks to Adrian & his wonderful staff at Smoke & Ash Enjoy SNP friends!

A whimsical Harry Potter themed - Halloween love story

When Dona & Erica From The beautiful Lambermont reached out to Josh and I for this fun stylized project, we could not fly away from the opportunity to create such magic with some of our great pals and some of THE best in San Antonio's wedding community!

Let's start with this beautifully planned table scape perfectly fitted with butter beer and dinner spells for all!

From the butter beer, to the hand crafted cocktails, Harry Potter himself would have been head over heels in love.

For the reception look we really brought out the darkness! I’m talking smoke bombs (no dresses were harmed in the process), black veils, and levitation!

We chose this witchy black evening gown from Pronovias to really go for a different look from the wedding gown from Blush by Hayley Paige. Stephanie Eiland created this spooktacular veil!

#StefWillWed Wednesday

How about a little trip down memory lane!? It's hard to believe so much time has flown by since the last time I saw these love birds! Sadly, I wasn't blogging then so I didn't get to share these. 
I think these are just TOO gorgeous to let sit in a folder so ENJOY these with me! What a perfect fall day at The lovely JW Marriott Resort & Spa

Eddie & Claudia

Won't you just FALL  in love with these beautiful wedding day photos ?!? I mean I seriously CANNOT get enough of these two LOVIEEEESSS! When Eddie of Ink'd CO messaged me about his & Claudia's special day, I knew it was going to be unique since grooms usually aren't the ones to reach out to their photog hopeful.  Luckily for me, Eddie has a keen eye for beautiful photography and so it goes he saw a friends photos (taken by yours truly, of course) and after a few meetings I twisted their arm and things were all set to go for November 5, 2016!
     It's Always a pleasure getting to work with the friendly staff at Spinelli's  and what good would I be if I didn't oblige a little romantics on the river being that we are in the big beautiful land of TEXAS and bodies of water are EVERYWHERE! I think it's safe to say that Justin & I Kiehl'ed it in Comfort!
It feels great to finally take a breather from shooting and the holidays to catch up on editing all the goodness captured from this past wedding season!
I'm so excited to finally be blogging and sharing these fleeting moments with y'all!
Stay tuned for more in 2017! 

HELLO 2017!

I MUST share one of my personal favorite photos from 2016! This photograph was the last wedding I shot of the year on behalf of Lonestar Portraits. I love being hired by other topnotch San Antonio wedding photographers that allow me to create freely and share my signature shots and vision with their clients. When I showed up to Paramour on this warm (turned cold) Saturday in December and asked Rene what he needed of me, he basically gave me free reigns to create anything I saw! Thank you so much Rene, Taylor & Paul for letting me in on such a special day!

As much as I love working with several photographers, in 2017 I will be focusing on exclusively shooting with Ann Michael Weddings and SNP. This will enable me to step more into teaching, live tutorials, and some other goodies I can't wait to tell y'all about soon!!!  
With time and experience comes growth. With growth,  balance and revaluation of time is necessary. Giving my clients the best will be the focus! Twenty-SEVENTEEN, c
atch me on the Sarah Naselli Weddings flip or the Ann Michael Weddings flip ... Peace :)

Holiday family bliss at the McNay Art Museum

What a refreshing session to have on a dewey Sunday morning after a solid few months of non-stop weddings! Now don't get me wrong, I LOVE MY WEDDINGS, but literally between my own clients and those of my good buddies, I was obliged to photograph a dear returning family and former BOSS lady! The weather almost had us this day as we played it by ear but decided to test the weather back! I sure am glad we did! ENJOY this sweet family gem as much as I did capturing them.

Veronica & Jeremy's perfect Fall wedding

I mean first let me start off by saying I have Known Veronica since 1ST GRADE!! YES! (first grade!!)

Secondly,
 I don't think I know a photographer that wouldn't be pleased to shoot at the beautiful Club at Sonterra put together by THE amazing Reese Event Groups. (not to mention that this day Liza fell ill and though she showed up, Mr. Greg Reese HIMSELF stayed to make sure everything was as perfect as Mr. & Mrs. Burns dreamed it would be. Let's me say no more, enjoy this romantic, lively wedding in one of Texas best kept gems!
