We love “wedding after sessions” because why wouldn’t you want to spend some extra time with your new spouse and get some rad photos in your wedding attire?! These brides were an absolute joy to work with and this light was romantic af!
We each got a behind the scenes photo from an engagement session a few weeks ago and wanted to say hi! 👋🏻 We’re currently still figuring out this pandemic life and are thrilled to have sessions starting back up, beautiful elopements, and booking some wonderful 2021 couples we can’t wait to meet! 💍 Right now we are playing through “The Last of Us 2”, looking forward to Dark Season 3 to come out this week, obsessed with some jalapeño chips we found at the store, making some homemade queso, and spending as much time as we can outside in our favorite park. How are all of you doing?!
Juneteenth, also known as Freedom Day, Jubilee Day, and Liberation Day is a holiday celebrating the liberation of those who had been held as slaves in the United States. Originally a Texas state holiday, it is now celebrated annually on the 19th of June throughout the United States, with varying official recognition. Specifically, it commemorates Union army general Gordon Granger announcing federal orders in Galveston, Texas, on June 19, 1865, proclaiming that all people held as slaves in Texas were free. Although the Emancipation Proclamation had officially freed them almost two and a half years earlier, and the American Civil War had largely ended with the defeat of the Confederate States in April, Texas was the most remote of the slave states, with a low presence of Union troops, so enforcement of the proclamation had been slow and inconsistent. . . . .

We can’t wait to work with this wedding vendor dream team again! Also, wedding tip for the day...have fun during your wedding portraits. If that means dancing together or goofing off in your own personal way by all means do it! This backyard wedding venue was a dream to celebrate with these two.
Yesterday’s elopement was absolutely perfect! Telyssa and Jordan were suppose to be getting married in the Dominican Republic but now had to postpone until next year. Their photographer recommended us to them since they wanted to still get married and make it official this year. When Telyssa reached out to us she said that Jordan was so bummed they couldn’t get married so she planned this afternoon courthouse wedding and session as a surprise. She told us a couple spots she loved for photos after the courthouse and this spot was brilliant. The afternoon light while using the prism we have made this image even more epic. Congratulations you two, so happy to celebrate with you both and can’t wait to share more!
Talking with couples about Big Bend is making us look back on this wonderful engagement session a couple years ago. How is this in Texas?! So excited to get back there at some point and hike around some new spots. Where are your favorite places to travel? Let us know in the comments!
Obsessed with these pastel details from this elopement. We can’t wait to photograph Emily and Adam’s full wedding next March at @southcongresshotel 🙌🏻
