This beautiful wedding was set at the uniquely rustic Texan chapel at Old Glory Ranch in Wimberley, Texas right along the river. A couple that started as a junior high crush has matured over the years as their families have become a part of one another, and that close knit longtime relationship came through, even if the groom was a little camera shy! A fun and classy group of friends completed the circle, topped off with a great second shooter, Tara Pottichen with whom I second shot a wedding the weekend before, we all fun capturing a fairy tale event!

I have a niece Brittany and a nephew Josh who are about 20 years apart, so the dimples and eyes and names make me feel like I’m right at home with my own family. Can you imagine the gorgeous eyes their children will have between the two of them? I loved the tender interaction they had with one another as their comfortable familiar relationship took on a new and exciting turn. Best wishes to you both as you embark on the next phase of your journey together!

Alex & Joaquin shared a beautifully tender but monstrously hot wedding ceremony at the outdoor (in August=really, really hot!) Chapel Dulcinea south of Austin in Driftwood, Texas. Joaquin is faithfully serving his country and about to embark on his second deployment (military dress uniform=really, really hot!) A huge crowd for the small chapel of family and friends surrounded them, as well as their adorable son. Congratulations on the next step in your adventure together, and here’s to hoping it stays just as hot for years to come!

There’s a fantastic little outdoor chapel near my neighborhood I’ve been itching to shoot, Chapel Dulcinea in Driftwood, Texas, and this weekend I got a last-minute call to cover a wedding there. We didn’t do any posed shots, so this wedding was far more photo-journalistic than any others I’ve done. While I’m not ready to give up the posed romantic couple shots, the natural emotion expressed was great to capture, as long as my fingers were fast on the camera setting dials! A beautiful couple off to a beautiful start!

And speaking of a good start, I’ve been teaching my 10-year-old daughter, and she took this one with my D70 backup camera which I set up to AV mode, an 85mm prime lens, and my back up flash, which the bride ordered! Not bad!
