Erica
Bensten State Park Bridal Portraits | Mission, Texas

In December, I photographed Erica's bridal session. Twice.

Yes, you read correctly - twice. All just a mere few days before her wedding!!! The best part about photographing such a beautiful bride is the fact that both times provided us with really funny experiences and stories to share. All in all, it was an absolute joy to see such a special friend and sister in her beautiful gown. I shared Erica and George's wedding a few days ago and mentioned that they opted out of having formal portraits done on their wedding day. It was different from what I am used to but in retrospect, I can totally understand why Erica may have felt like she had enough photos, ha ha!

Anyway, she had the most beautiful dress ever! It was completely different from anything I had ever seen before. The top was sleeveless yet modestly covered, there was a beautiful blinded out belt, and the mermaid bottom was tiered and ribboned - wow!!!

Erica, you made a beautiful bride!!

Happy Tuesday friends!

Vanessa
La Munequita Ranch Bridal Session | Mission, Texas

When I shared Vanessa and her fiancé John's engagement photos a few months ago, I mentioned how Vanessa had promised to one day hire me for her wedding when she was engaged. Fast forward a few years later and graduation, Vanessa became engaged to her college sweetheart last year and married this summer. As promised, I was hired to photograph the beautiful wedding. Early this summer, I had the pleasure of finally seeing Vanessa in all her bridal glory. 

We decided on La Munequita Ranch as a backdrop for her bridal portraits. A country girl at heart, La Munequita Ranch provided a subtle rustiness to her portraits. We were joined by her mother and maid of honor as well as my momma and baby girl. The best part of this career, I'll say again and again, is being able to stay close to my babies. But I digress...

Vanessa, you looked absolutely beautiful and truly have worn one of my favorite wedding gowns to date. You oozed romantic-ness and look flawless. I hope marriage is treating you well sister!
