On the grounds of The Springs near New Braunfels, Maizey and Aaron confirmed their love for one another. As the sunset drew near, the wedding ceremony concluded ushering in a wonderful night of celebration and fun. Being able to witness and photograph the entire day was such a fun experience. The transition from anxiousness and excitement to joy and delight could be seen as the day progressed, and it was a pleasure capturing the intimate moments throughout.
I don’t often get calls to shoot weddings so far from home. The majority of weddings I cover are around San Antonio where I live. I also often cover weddings in the Corpus Christi area as well as the Waco area. Laura and Corey’s wedding would take me to Dallas, and travel is part of the fun of doing wedding photography.
What they had planned was a fun evening of family, friends, entertainment, and a wedding ceremony to tie it all together. With the downtown Dallas skyline in the background, their wedding venue, Lofty Spaces, provided a great location for everyone to have a wonderful time. Add some lively entertainment in the form of dueling pianos and you have a recipe for a fun night.
Ah yes, the Kilts! A fun little addition by the groom just to keep things fun and unique. There was no specific reason for the kilts except to ensure that this would be a wedding with its own flair and style. The groomsmen loved them, and they provided a great talking point for the entire event. Congrats Laura and Corey!! It was a pleasure to capture your day.
Jana and Jeff are the cutest couple. I had been looking forward to photographing their wedding for months. They had booked me over the phone back in July, and I could tell from Jana’s enthusiasm that it would be a beautiful event.
With the ceremony held at the Little Church of La Villita the wedding had a distinct charm and downtown San Antonio flair. It was the perfect location for friends and family to gather and witness Jana and Jeff join together in marriage. The forecast had been calling for rain all week but somehow I knew the morning of the wedding it would be a great day. A light drizzle finally did come down during the ceremony, but by the time formal photos were done, the walk to The Hotel Contessa was dry, and the reception got underway.
Small intimate weddings are so much fun and such a treat to photograph. I always feel a much tighter connection with the couple, and the images seem to be full of emotion and atmosphere. Such was the case with Maliha and Mike a couple of weekends ago here in San Antonio. With family in attendance the two celebrated a small ceremony at their home to profess their love and commitment to one another. It was such a joyful event with all the emotion and fun that one would expect from a close knit family.
I posted a handful of photos earlier this week from Liz and Gavin’s wedding. What I didn’t mention was the pressure many were feeling in the minutes leading up to the ceremony. There was never any doubt the two would tie the knot, but my drive to the venue had me feeling a bit anxious.
The ceremony and reception were being held at Scenic Springs, a beautiful venue tucked away in the trees of Grey Forest just outside San Antonio. About 10 miles from the venue the rain was pouring off my windshield, and continued for the next 5 miles. Scenic Springs was still dry, but I was a bit uneasy unloading my photography equipment. The buzz of activity meant there was little time to lament about the weather, and both Liz and Gavin seemed to be unaffected by it. Intentional or not, the silence surrounding the possibility of rain and the thought of moving the ceremony indoors, seemed like an unwritten code everyone should follow.
As if to work perfectly, the silence paid off and not a drop fell as Liz and Gavin exchanged vows in a beautiful ceremony. As everyone made their congratulations and headed off to the reception area, one could see the joy and delight in Liz and Gavin. It would shine even brighter throughout the night, on a day that started so cloudy.
