Kris + Daniel - Cinnamon Shore Wedding - Port Aransas, Texas

Last November I was given the opportunity to 2nd shoot/assist a fantastic husband and wife Video+Photo team, Juan Jose Photography. Juan handles the videography while his wife Rebekah takes care of photography! For this wedding they needed an additional photographer to capture all the details of the day and that is where I came in! 

I was so excited to be able to cover a ceremony at the absolutely stunning Cinnamon Shore in Port Aransas, TX. I absolutely love this venue. We showed up to capture the getting ready and detail shots before the ceremony was to start. The bridal party was staying in one of the luxurious homes just next to the lawn where the ceremony was to be held. 

Upon meeting Kris it was apparent that this wedding would be unique, in the best possible way! I mean how fun is a Steampunk inspired wedding with a slight nautical twist!?!  Florals in pinks and maroon complimented her slightly blush lace gown and sparkling pink bridesmaids dresses to perfection.  Steampunk boots and a feather headpiece brought her wedding theme in to her wedding day attire. To die for!!

Before the wedding we headed out to take some bridal party photos with the *drumroll please* Rolls Royce they had rented to take them from the house to the beach boardwalk for their ceremony. Daniel had his crew in navy blue and, veering from the traditional all male groomsmen, had 1 gorgeous grooms-woman. I loved the way she was able to wear the same dress as the bridesmaids while matching the groomsmen in color!

Kris's love of cephalopods (fancy word for squid and octopi) was incorporated flawlessly into every detail by Jo Anne with Oh Goodie Designs. From the invitations, to the bouquet, to the favors, and even the cake!!

In lieu of a normal (and maybe boring) guestbook, guests signed an insanely cool globe lamp. A series of Edison bulbs glowed down the head table, which had me obsessing and wishing I could go back in time and have Edison bulbs at my own wedding!  Topping off the steampunk theme was the coolest pyrotechnic display ever! Gears shot awe inspiring flames into the night sky every so often. It was really an incredible sight.  I can not be more grateful to have been a part of capturing such a truly unique and incredible celebration of love and marriage! I can't wait for the next Cinnamon Shore wedding I get to cover.

Kristin + Juan - Corpus Christi Engagement Session

Sometimes in life you click with a person before you even meet them. Everything aligns and you just know you are meant to be together.  That was the case for Kristin and me. You thought I was going to say Kristin and Juan didn't you! LOL …  from our first email she and I both knew that I was meant to be their photographer.

We planned outfits, coordinated dates, talked mosquito repellant, and worked through the man phenomenon that is the sunglasses tan line before we ever met. When their session date came around I was so excited to finally get to meet Kristin in person. She hopped out of the car and we greeted each other with a hug like old friends before we headed down a trail to our first photo location. We quickly realized we underestimated the mosquito problem here in south Texas and had to abandon the trail. THOSE THINGS ARE WILD.... AND EVERYWHERE! It was okay though because we found a little shady spot with some gorgeous greenery for a background before heading to the boardwalk area. I jumped right into getting them all snuggled up and cozy.

What says "engaged" more than lovey dovey cuddles? Nothing. They rocked everything I asked them to do despite the swarms of mosquitos. They danced, they kissed, they strolled all while being attacked and you would NEVER KNOW IT!

I just love the images we captured. I think they really portray their relationship. There is an obvious and easy love between them. The kind where you don't have to try too hard. Where you are each other's best friend and can laugh and be completely yourselves. I am so honored to have been able to do their engagement session and can't wait for their wedding next year!
