Kim is the daughter of some long-lost friends of ours (lost all the way in north Austin!) who made the trek to see me (all the way in south Austin) at the Salt Lick Cellars garden and vineyard in Driftwood, TX for an engagement shoot to her college sweetheart Landon. With a great easy-going attitude and dry sense of humor the shoot was a lot of fun, and a bit of a walk down memory lane. My oldest daughter is the age Kim was when she used to babysit for us, and suddenly I see how fast the time has flown! Congratulations to you both on your next adventure in life, and all that stress you gave your parents during your early teen years seems to have proven worth it. Can’t wait to see you in your dress for your bridal!

I love following a couple through several months and several photography sessions with the “triple threat” of engagement, bridal, and wedding portraits, getting to know them and creating photos that show off their unique personalities and relationship. As we saw in their sneak peek, Ruth and John, you are both beautiful and easy to work with, chose gorgeous locations like Springhill Event Center in San Antonio for your sessions, and actively created your photo experience. I enjoyed working with you and for you, and thanks to my second shooter Soobum Im for capturing me capturing you. Congratulations on your wedding, I know your marriage will be blessed!

Ruth and John got married today at Springhiill Event Center in San Antonio, a great venue near 281 and Stone Oak. Gorgeous lawns, outdoor and indoor areas, plenty of open space, stylish, and easy to get to. And it’s about time I got a photo of me working thanks to my second photographer. I always bring a second for the peace of mind for my brides and grooms to know we’ll get stunning photos with everything properly backed up. I bring back up equipment, the second has back up equipment, we dump our cards during and after the event to make sure your photos that help you relive this memory are safe.
