Amy and Eli are married – A Scenic Springs Wedding

Sometimes you have to be a little bit bold, especially this time of year.  For the most part Texas winter weather is mild, and it can result in perfect conditions for a wedding ceremony.  On the other hand it can be miserable, and leave couples looking for a plan “B”.  On the morning of Amy and Eli’s wedding, plan “B” appeared to be the likely choice.  Slightly on the cool side, and with heavy threatening skies, the chance of rain was very likely.  It takes a bold bride to stick with an outdoor ceremony plan under those conditions, but Amy was sure of her decision.

As if to exhibit some kind of super power over the weather, the rain did hold out all the way up until the last shots of the formal photos, then light sprinkles fell letting everyone know it was time to move on to the reception.  Congrats to a wonderful couple and a fantastic wedding day.  Capturing the moments of your day was a heartwarming experience.

Patty and Josh are Married – A Scenic Springs Wedding

Beautiful days and gorgeous venues are always the perfect backdrop for wedding photography.  Patty and Josh chose Scenic Springs in Helotes, TX as their wedding venue, and the day couldn’t have been more perfect.   The day was full of emotion and very touching moments, as their close friends and family gathered for the special day.

The day began with Patty and Josh getting ready at the venue and continued with a “first look” moment that really set the stage for the day.  The beauty and emotion that would follow made capturing heartwarming images easy.  It was such a joy to be a part of their day and experience the excitement first hand.

Lupe and Jesus are married!

Lupe and Jesus contacted me with very little time left before their wedding.  Each year I get a few last minute wedding photography requests, and I always enjoy helping out if I have the date available.  This was the case for Lupe and Jesus, and even better I had previously photographed events at the church and reception venue they chose.

The church was Our Lady of Guadalupe Catholic Church in Helotes.  It had been some time since I last photographed a wedding there, and to make it more interesting the service was to be in Spanish.  Growing up in the Catholic church was a big help in knowing the progression of the mass and sacrament.  The reception was just down the road at La Escondida Celebration Center, another venue I am familiar with. We even had a dramatic sky for a sunset couples photo!  Congrats to you both, and many happy years ahead.

Gardens at Old Town Helotes Wedding

Helotes is an area where I find myself photographing weddings more frequently than any other.  I can’t explain why that is the case, but I am certainly not complaining.  Helotes sits on the edge of the Hill Country, like a doorway to the rolling hills and beautiful countryside that draws so many.  It is a small quaint town, that offers small boutique shops, and acts as a getaway for those looking for an escape from the big city.

This makes it a perfect location for wedding venues and inns.  Most of them are nestled in the woods and hillsides around the area, and they all have their own unique appeal.  Gardens at Old Town Helotes hosted my most recent wedding to photograph. Situated near downtown Helotes, the venue is tucked away behind beautiful tress and foliage making it a gorgeous location.  The intimate nature of the venue was perfect for Samantha and Buddy, and served as a perfect backdrop for their wedding ceremony.

Samantha and Buddy chose to keep the ceremony simple, yet beautifully elegant.  The personal vows they wrote one another kept the ceremony touching and heartfelt.  Having the opportunity to photograph the two of them, and capture their wedding day was a pleasure.  Congrats to the two of them and I wish them many happy years ahead.

Scenic Springs this Saturday

I am excited to be photographing Liz and Gavin’s wedding this Saturday at Scenic Springs in Helotes.  Just on the edge of  West San Antonio, Helotes is a lovely area that opens up to the Hill Country.  All the areas at Scenic Springs are picturesque, and it is a wonderful location for a fairytale ceremony, and I can’t wait to photograph an amazing couple in a fantastic location.

Anderson-Dwight Wedding

It has been almost a few weeks since Halloween, but I wanted to share the treat I had for the day.  Daryl and Stephanie’s wedding took place on Halloween day, complete with party atmosphere.  The wedding itself was Catholic based, and Daryl’s Irish heritage was on prominent display for all those that attended.  Overall it was a lovely wedding and a fun celebration of their love and commitment.
