A Downtown San Antonio Engagement Session at Market Square
Jordan & Andrew
You know those couples who are both incredibly stylish, AND incredibly sweet? Yes, the ones that make the rest of us jealous. 😉 That’s Jordan and Andrew! I got to have these two in front of my camera for their gorgeous engagement session, and you would never believe that this was their first EVER real session together. They looked like models! Seriously!
Jordan and Andrew met at The Thirsty Horse – a country-western bar with a dance club and live music. The two of them hit it off right away, and it wasn’t long before they started dating!
“When Andrew proposed,” Jordan told me. “We were at an ugly Christmas sweater party. All of our closest family and friends were there, and Andrew got down on one knee and asked me to marry him. Of course I said yes! 😉 We both feel so lucky that we found each other, and we can’t wait for our wedding!
“Andrew and I really enjoy traveling together, and we love to visit San Diego – or anywhere there is a beach! We love California in general and visit whenever we can. We also could not live without our fur baby…a beautiful cat who is part of our family. His name is Princeton, but we call him Handsome. :)”
For their engagement session, Jordan chose a long red maxi dress with a lace-up back. Andrew wore a slim white button-up with jeans and his favorite brown cowboy boots! Andrew changed into a blue button-up for outfit number two, while Jordan wore a white embellished mini-dress that just popped against the background of Market Square. I told you, these two are stylin’! 🙂
Jordan and Andrew, thank you so much for choosing me as your photographer! I so enjoyed exploring Market Square with you! Enjoy a few of my favorites from your San Antonio engagement session! 🙂
Oh… how I love a good family / maternity session!! I live for weddings… but would love to add more family and maternity sessions to my 2018 calendar! They are sooo much fun!!
Sunset Family Session at the McNay in San Antonio, TX
After having to reschedule to due rain (and I am so glad we did…because the weather was amazing) we were finally able to have this family session at The McNay. We decide to use the inside grounds for most of the session- and it turned out to be AMAZING!! I absolutely love the McNay!
Here are a few of my favorite!
Those gorgeous blue eyes! This little two year old kept us all on our toes…!
This family is just gorgeous!
One of the things I love about the McNay are the many options for photographs. We hung out on the outside grounds for about 30 minutes before heading inside. We were able to grab a few photos from a few different spots during this time.
Ah….how cute is he?!!
This little cutie is smart, funny and wild. He loves cheesing for pictures– which I absolutely love!
love this sweet moment between mom and son — so sweet!
and we cannot forgot about Dad— how sweet is this moment?! love it!
This sweet family moved to the San Antonio area a few years ago— and absolutely love it here! They were so laid back and was up for pretty much anything!
Its easy to get overwhelmed for your family session— but the biggest advice I can give you is: let you chid/children be themselves! These are always my clients (and mine) favorite images- and it really makes for a more relaxed session!
Someone is excited to be a BIG brother!!!
I such mom away to get a few images of her by herself… and I love them!!! This is possibly one of my favorites!!
This is towards the end of the session— I know I was slowly losing this little cuties attentions span- lol and I’m sure by this time– he was getting pretty bored ha!
If you are ever wondering how most family sessions go– with little ones– this one photo sums it up! He had my laughing so hard by the end of this session!!
Congratulations to this beautiful family! I had so much fun!!

Emily moved to Texas from Michigan …little did she know – just one week after moving here— that should would meet the man she was going to marry. Emily and Ian’s wedding at The Pearl in San Antonio was filled with LOTS of laughter…love and so much joy! Seriously, these 2 are sooo much fun to be around!
Here are a few of my favorites from their wedding day!
The Proposal in Dallas, TX
Emily and Ian met while working for the same company…. It was love at first sight. After dating and falling in love- Ian decided it was time to ask Emily to be his forever. These 2 are absolutely perfect together! Ian proposed to Emily while they were on a gondolas ride April 2017 in Dallas, TX — and of course, Emily said YES!
Here are a few of my favorite from their wedding day!
Seriously..these smiles and laughter lasted the entire wedding day!
See that cross?! The groom made it. How awesome is that?!!
I love that Emily wanted to keep this wedding sweet and simple. We had so much time for portraits— and I love that!! Nothing was rushed and there was no real timeline. We spent about an hour or so walking around The Pearl for their portraits… and had so much fun!
Sweet Sweet Romance
Ok… not really an exit– but it can count as a grand exit, right?! Can everyone do this for their exit?? I love love love this image!!! Emily and Ian were up for just about anything!
Thank you Emily and Ian for trusting me to capture your beautiful wedding day!!

Rebecca and Kyle’s fairytale began when they met 8 years ago while working for NASA. Kyle proposed to Rebecca while on a weekend getaway to Old Montreal. I love so many images from their fall engagement session at the Pearl… it was so hard to pick which ones to blog!
The Proposal in Old Montreal
While staying In Old Montreal for a weekend…. staying in a beautiful boutique hotel on the water. Rebecca and Kyle had just got back from dinner. They went out on the balcony for some drinks, Kyle had gone back inside, when Rebecca turned around he was on one knee with the ring.
A beautiful bond
Rebecca + Kyle have been together for 8 beautiful years. They’ve spent some of their relationship having to live apart… due to their jobs. Kyle has said, “She is the brightest and happiest part of my life. She complements my personality so well it’s hard to believe sometimes. There is no one else I could even tolerate to be around every day and I get to look forward to every moment with her”. These two share a deep and special bond– and I am so happy for them! I know their wedding is going to be filled so much love and joy!
Because I love this image in color and black and white… I’m posting both 🙂
If you’ve been following me.. you know I love light. If its there… I’ll find it 😉
When we started planning Rebecca + Kyle’s engagement session… they knew they did not want anything in a field. I was so happy to switch up locations! I love fields — but I was ready to switch things up! I absolutely love the Pearl area…and knew this would be a perfect location for their session.
On another note… Doesn’t Rebecca have the most amazing blue eyes?!!
I loved how they coordinated their outfits!

The fairytale began for Adrianna and Christopher the day they met online. Christopher wrote another chapter in that fairytale when he proposed on a September day during a visit to Fredericksburg. I fell in love with their engagement photos instantly and can’t wait for their wedding day!
Proposing at the Top of Enchanted Rock
He popped the question at the top of Enchanted Rock, appropriately named for such a romantic event. Seeing Christopher pull out a ring while taking in the view took Adrianna by complete surprise. She very quickly and emphatically said, “Yes!” The couple has said that Fredericksburg is one of their favorite places to visit and now they’ve added one more reason why they love it there. They also have a wonderful, new memory of that location remember the start of their engagement in all their years together to come.
Mutual Love for Education and Date Nights in San Antonio
Even though they lived in San Antonio, one of the largest cities in the U.S., they lived down the street from each other for an entire year before they even met. Education is important to both Adrianna and Christopher and, when they finish graduate school, they will have an impressive six degrees between them. While Christopher admires Adrianna’s open-mindedness and kind spirit, Adrianna appreciates Christopher’s beautiful smile and self-titled funniest man in the room moniker.
For date nights, they love trying new and interesting restaurants and admit they love going to the movies a little too much! When they really want to get away from it all they enjoy traveling to The Cove, The Pearl, pretty much any state park, and, of course, Fredericksburg. Tbilisi, Georgia is a dream location for the couple to travel to together since Christopher taught there for several months and wants to share this amazing location with Adrianna some day.
Gorgeous Natural Lighting for Sunset Engagement
Since the couple loves the outdoors, we held their engagement photos session at a beautiful location with great lighting. With the perfect backdrop provided by Mother Nature, I was able to capture the full extent of Adrianna and Christopher’s love for one another along with their playful nature. Posing in an open field, amongst the trees, and along the water, Adrianna and Christopher were able to help me preserve some light-hearted and romantic moments that are uniquely them.
Looking ahead to Adrianna and Christopher’s wedding day, I am excited and honored to help them write yet another chapter in the love story as they become husband and wife.
