This was a fun and very typical Corpus Christi engagement session. We had wind, water and a healthy dose of humidity. We started out at the Water Gardens downtown by the Art Museum of South Texas and then headed towards Water Street. Edith and Bert have a fun wedding planned coming up very soon so be on the lookout for her bridal photos and wedding photos on the blog soon!
Gruene is a great backdrop for engagement photos. A small town with rich German heritage, Gruene is nestled along the beautiful Guadalupe River and brags of having one of the oldest dance halls in Texas. Sarah and Travis chose it for sentimental reasons and because of the great rustic setting. I had a fun time getting to know them, and I’m sure their fall wedding at Don Strange Ranch will be equally enjoyable!
The Ruff Haus in Fredericksburg, Texas provided an intimate and beautiful setting for Emily and Fred’s Hill Country wedding. The venue is fairly new and this was one of the first weddings ever to be held at this location. The ceremony was held under the arbor in front of the fountain and the meal was served al fresco just a few steps away. The wedding took place just before lunch and after the meal everyone headed to Enchanted Rock to enjoy the wonderful weather. The entire day was simple, beautiful, natural and a little rustic – it was perfect for Emily and Fred. In addition to shooting this beautiful Fredericksburg wedding, I rented a Sunday House for the weekend and enjoyed the fun shops and restaurants that make Fredericksburg a popular weekend getaway.
This year I have spent some time down in Corpus Christi both working and visiting family. While down on the coast I took a few maternity/family photos for this fun, photogenic and slightly silly family. Although we spent a fair amount of time chasing around a blonde child who wasn’t 100% on board with the photo session, I think we captured some wonderful images that really show what this family is into at this time in their lives. I’m happy to say that the new addition has arrived and he is a red head!
I had a great time spending an afternoon in Buda with little Ellie for her one year photo shoot. We had what turned into a very messy smash cake session followed by a bath (genius!) This little girl holds a very special place in my heart. I was there the day she was born and that was an unforgettable experience! Love you Ellie!!
