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.
Oh, Jessie, you had me laughing as much as Krystal was, which makes taking photos difficult! When the camera wasn’t shaking with my mirth, I caught a few serious moments and especially enjoyed the intimate exchanges of tenderness when the two of you forgot we were watching. A beautiful ceremony at St John’s Catholic Church on Hopkins Street, complete with a broom jumping off the dais, was coupled with a reception at Hill Country Event Center in San Marcos with one of the sweetest toasts I’ve ever heard, given by the bride’s father.
The only sad part was driving home to Austin because I thought we would be moved into our new home in Kyle, TX near the venue in San Marcos, TX and that 45-minute drive felt a lot longer than the 15 I was planning on last fall when we booked. But who cares? We’ll get moved in soon enough, and I got such a kick out of attending and documenting your wedding as your photographer. Huge congratulations to you both, and you will certainly enjoy life together even more now that you are together forever. I look forward to running into you around San Marcos once we move.
Amy & Thell were married on a mid-December day that felt like a gorgeous fall day at the LDS temple in San Antonio TX. They shared that beautiful wedding day surrounded by their children, grandchildren, and lifelong friends. As always with intimate family weddings I was honored to be included. They were so excited to finally be married it was a joy to watch! They followed up their wedding with a casual luncheon at a nearby restaurant where I captured the event and took family portraits for each of the grown children with all those adorable granchildren.
