Last night was a beautiful & fun birthday party for Alyssah - her Quinceañera!!  And she looked just like a princess.

I was so honored to be asked to take her Quinceañera portraits.  She was a vision in her beautiful ballgown by Morilee by Madeline Gardner's Valencia collection.   I just love how it sparkled!   So gorgeous!!

Alyssah is a quiet soul, and she is elegant beyond her years.  She was so sweet with me, she did anything I asked her even though she was freezing!  Poor thing!  But she never complained, not even once.  Photographing her was a breeze because she herself will admit she loves the camera - she is the selfie queen!!   She absolutely loves doing hair and makeup and plans to pursue that after she graduates from West High School.  I'm sure she will do great with...

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....

Yvette tagged along with her sister-in-law who was coming to see me about a cake smash.  She was looking for someone to do her bridals before her wedding which was coming up fast.  I pulled out my trusty planner and we found a date that would work for both of us.

Yvette and Frankie's love story began 8 years ago when they were married by a Justice of the Peace in her parents living room.  She never stopped thinking about her dream wedding and they decided to just do it!!  The wedding reception was going to be held at the new Hause Venue so she wanted to do her bridals there.  I was so excited - as I've already told ya'll - I love that old building and have lots of fond memories there.   My assistant Vicki was excited too, we had shot one bridal there so we were pret...
