Maggie & Ryan: A San Antonio Wedding

For me, the magic of wedding photography is that so much love is packed into each moment. I was honored to be behind the camera capturing those moments for Maggie and Ryan's wedding this month. From their traditional ceremony at Christ the King Lutheran Church in Universal City to their elegant reception at the Woman's Club of San Antonio, the day was packed with love and joy.

There wasn't time for portraits before the ceremony, but I did have time to hang with the bride and groom separately as they got ready.

The altar was a gorgeous backdrop for the formal family portraits. This is just one of many portraits we took after the wedding.

At The Woodward House (The Woman's Club of San Antonio) I stole the bride and groom for a couple of minutes for their portraits.

After they cut the cake, Maggie declared that absolutely no cake would contact her face. Thanks to her ninja moves, she was correct.

There wasn't a dance floor, but Maggie and Ryan didn't let that stop them from having a first dance.

Near the end of the night we took a few minutes for some sunset portraits.

One of the last goals of the night was to get some unique portraits with the bridal party (there wasn't time before the ceremony.) 

The guests tossed lavender as the bride and groom made their final exit.

The McCain Project

I met Artina during our shoot for her upcoming album with singer Icy Simpson. The success of that shoot lead to our most recent shoot with Artina and her husband.

Artina and Martin are an awesome musical duo (Martin plays the trombone and Artina is a pianist.) Their instruments create an unexpected pair, but they actually work really well together. We spent an afternoon at Texas State shooting outdoors as well as in one of the halls. I was in photographer heaven! The piano was gorgeous, the hall was huge (perfect for this style of shoot) and Artina and Martin were great models. I hope you enjoy the results as much as I do.
