Leigh and Trey – New Braunfels Wedding

Wedding venues with historic ties are always interesting, and when Leigh contacted me about her wedding I was very interested.  Leigh and Trey has selected Bavarian Halle as their wedding site.  Bavarian Halle is a recently transformed Schlitterbahn property,  that doubles as a beer garden, and now wedding venue.  The historic tie is that the venue is built around the Moeller House.  Moeller House is the oldest two story house in New Braunfels, and the rustic charm has been nicely preserved over the years.

For Leigh and Trey it made the perfect location for their New Braunfels wedding.  they were one of the first couples to book a wedding at the transformed venue, and one of the first few weddings to be held there.  For me it was exciting to be photographing one of the first weddings at such a historic site.  The rustic atmosphere of the Moeller House was perfect for the “geting ready” photos, and provided a warm, dry location for group shots.

The reception area doubled as the setting for the ceremony, and was easily converted to a charming atmosphere for the dancing and dinner.  For Leigh and Trey it was an evening of joy, fun, and love as they mingled with friends and family from all over.  It is always exciting to share in capturing the movements that make the day so special.

San Antonio Engagement Photographer – Downtown River Walk

When suggesting the San Antonio River Walk as an engagement photography location, I am often met with a hesitant response.  The image most people visualize is the crowded narrow walkway in the heart of the tourist attraction.  I typically have to paint the picture of a much more laid back and intimate location away from the crowds.  Just outside the main River Walk area is a more picturesque and quaint trail, that offers an intimate atmosphere.

Rebecca and Cody were up for the adventure, and trusted we would get some great photos for their engagement session.  I always get excited when a local couple experiences new locations and sites they have not encountered before.  The diversity and architecture of downtown allows for a wide range of backdrops, which Rebecca and Cody loved.
