Abril & Jesse | The Astin Mansion

Abril and Jesse are the sweetest, this couple is the real deal y’all. It was incredible seeing all the love that surrounded them on this day. Their families were so welcoming… I truly felt like I was a part of their family. We actually had met Jesse years ago (when we first started our photography journey!) for his sister Janysa’s Quinceñera so it was great getting to see everyone once again!

My favorite part of the day was when they did an “Around The Corner” interaction - tears rolled down both of their cheeks as they held hands. Of course, I teared up too! They were in different rooms and had no idea that the other was reacting much the same.

It was such a joy to be able to capture truly joyous moments on their wedding day. Congratulations again you two!

Lauren & Edward | Japanese Tea Garden

We are absolutely thrilled when our couples are enthusiastic about their engagement sessions, so it was amazing to work with Lauren and Edward to do something unique for their photos! When they let us know they chose the Japanese Tea Gardens in San Antonio we knew it would be a fun challenge to photograph somewhere new.

Despite waking up bright and early for their morning session, there were so many beautiful spots it felt like there was hardly enough time! These two were a blast to hang out with and they had great chemistry together.

They wrapped up their session with an outfit change at the lovely Pearl District and although it was a busy Saturday morning (there was a cool market out there!) we managed to have a little fun with it.

We seriously can’t wait for their wedding next year!
