WOW! It’s been a while! {San Antonio Photographer}

February 6, 2014 · 3:04 am

My oh my. It’s been a while!

While we have been BUSY BUSY, we have neglected our blog oh so much.

We have been busy shooting weddings at some of THE most gorgeous venues in Texas, as well as some of the most AMAZING families in and around San Antonio (dare we say it….even in Texas!). We feel so lucky and incredibly blessed to have been frolicking around the Hill Country, doing what we love and making people happy.

Here are just a few of our recent favorites, and we promise to be back more often!!

Engaged! {San Antonio Engagement Photographers}

February 5, 2013 · 5:31 pm

We met up with Jackie and Nick in an industrial part of town.  They wanted to include a friend of Nick’s corvette into their photo session.  Nick has worked on this car with his friend while growing up and have spent quite a lot of time with this car and the couple. What a beautiful car!  We love when personal items are integrated into sessions, makes them that much more special.  Congratulations you two!  Be on the look out for Jackie and Nick’s Wedding!  ~Jody & Melissa





First comes love, then comes marriage {San Antonio Wedding Photographer}

January 24, 2013 · 2:07 am

This little wedding took place just before New Years and we couldn’t have scored better – amazing couple, amazing weather, amazing venue…..le sigh. Such a fun afternoon.

It was a quaint little Riverwalk wedding with just the couple and her best friend. A short ceremony where you could feel how much these two love and care for each other, a little bubbly and some super yummy cake rounded out an amazing afternoon. We hope you enjoy these photos!
