Brittany & Adriano met at church.   They became fast friends and enjoyed each other's company.  It was a full year before Adriano asked Brittany out on a date.   They started a romance and became inseparable.

One day Adriano suggested they go to San Antonio for the weekend.  He wanted a weekend with all of their families together.  Brittany agreed and was excited for a weekend with Adriano and their families.  Little did she know that the mom's were in on a secret.  Adriano told Brittany that he wanted everyone to meet at the Tower of Americas for dinner.  When he and Brittany arrived, there was a heart made out of candles.  Brittany was thinking  "how sweet!"  She didn't know it was for her until Adriano led her to the heart and got down on one knee.  She was shocked bu...

I miss brides!  Since I am no longer photographing weddings, I don't get a lot of opportunities to be around brides and all their beauty.  So you can image how happy I was when Brittany and her mother Sabrina asked me to photograph her bridals! 

I immediately fell in love with Brittany.  Of course, the first thing I noticed was her beauty.  But as we talked, I noticed how soft spoken, thoughtful and sweet she is.  I knew our time together was going to be special.

I asked Brittany about her fiance and her face lit up as she told me their love story.

Brittany & Adriano had been attending the same church for about a year before they started dating.  Their attraction to each other seemed immediate and it didn't take them long to fall in love.    Adriano knew she was the one....

Devin & Norman met in May 2013 through a mutual friend while spending a fun, lazy weekend on the Frio River.  They became instant friends and were inseparable.  After only 6 months of dating Norman asked Devin to move in with her.  Without hesitation, she agreed.

About 2 years later, Norman came home early from work on a Tuesday afternoon.  Devin was napping in the bedroom.  She woke to find him down on one knee.  He asked her to be his forever.  Devin was so surprised she became overwhelmed with emotion.  Through happy tears she said absolutely YES!!!

They already had plans for a tropical vacation and decided why not take their wedding to paradise?  They saw this as a chance to do something incredible that would be more than anything they’ve ever been a part of...

I love Mission Espiritu Santo in Goliad.  It is so serene and peaceful there.  You almost feel like you have to whisper.   My mom and I had previously visited here so I could scope out the property and plan my photo map for the day.  Given how directionally challenged I am, it's no surprise that mom and I got a little lost on the nature trail (I'm pretty sure if we hadn't found our way out, my mom would have made me her lunch).   I knew it would be a pretty place to take pictures. 

Cassie and her mom Anna arrived and my jaw dropped when I saw Cassie's dress and veil.  How beautiful and fit her soooo perfectly!!  Cassie's strapless ballgown is by Allure Bridals​  and was so romantic and elegant with the gorgeous applique lace and  the crystal deta...

I had a lovely bride in my studio asked me "Have you ever had a bride not do a bridal portrait photo shoot?"    She was on the fence whether to invest in one or
