It was a wonderful fall day to have a wedding and it was so much fun capturing these beautiful moments as Brendan and Kelly recited their vows to one another.  The wedding was in a beautifully secluded venue in New Braunfels, TX:  The Chandelier at Gruene.  This was a special event because Brendan, who is an officer in the Army, was deployed no long after they were married and they waited more than a year to enjoy a traditional ceremony.   The weather was kind as there wasn’t much direct sunlight bearing down on us and there was plenty of even lighting, giving me the freedom to shoot anywhere within the ceremony without worrying about the sun casting any wicked shadows. 

The Reception was filled with laughter as both families came together to celebrate the Nolan’s vows and my camera and I had a front row seat to all of the emotion and intimacy.  There is nothing quite like fall weddings!

Hello again friends!  Here we have a beautiful set of family portraits with my good friends O.J. and Ashley.  Their beautiful daughter stole the show and she completley loved being in front of the camera.  I had such a great time shooting these images and the rustic location was the perfect backdrop to showcase such style and poise.  

Hey All!  Here are some of the images from a bridal portrait that I shot a few months back.  I was so anxious to share these beautiful portraits with you all but wanted to ensure that I didn’t spoil the wonderful surprise for the groom seeing his lovely bride in her wedding dress.  This dress by the way is very special, as it was wore by Kelly’s Aunt in 1975, then her mother in 1978 and now Kelly in 2017, Wow!  What a special way to share a bond between generations of family. 

As the 2017 season for my senior portraits has drawn to a close.  I was able to end the year on a graceful note with Emory.  A senior whose past as a dancer shined through her as she posed for each image.  The park was busy that day.  There were many other seniors having their own sessions so Emory and I found ourselves elbowing to make room so that we could take advantage of some of the nicer backdrops.  We didn’t get all of them, but Emory was a champ.  We were able to make the most of what we had and she was defintly the center of attention.  

Meet Celeste.  A Senior who is looking forward to pursuing a brilliant career in nursing. It was another beautiful day in the park and Celeste made a wonderful subject as we took full advantage of all of it’s scenic locations

It’s always fun when you can get together and work with other creative minds.  JJ and Tamisha are both electric personalities, and it shows in these images.  Instead of directing them in their poses, all I needed to do was keep the camera trained on them and snap away.  What a blast! 

I love how each session manifests it’s own mood and that is largely due to the unique subjects, I’m capturing.  Take a look for yourself; what word would you use to describe the mood of these two awesome ladies?

Hello again friends!  Today’s showcase includes another wonderful family that I had the pleasure of having a portrait shoot with.  I usually don’t have to many portrait sessions inside but I decided to spread my wings and the Tucker’s made it a worthwhile endeavor.  Another awesome session in the books!

The holidays are such a fun time to shoot family portraits.  Meet the Edmonds family, a young family who are as fun as they are beautiful.  This is one of those shoots that made me smile during the entire editing process.  What a delight it was to witness and capture such wonderful intimate moments with such a loving family
