How We Connected
Monica and Chris were referred to me by Dustin Baker, a good friend and owner of Lone Oak Studios down in Corpus Christi. The three of us met in person at their new home and I had so much fun getting to know more about them and what they were looking for in a wedding photographer. They opted to book a package that included their engagement session and I had a blast shooting that session right in their backyard a few weeks later.
Chris and Monica held their wedding ceremony at the beautiful CW Hill Country Ranch out in Boerne, TX. It was my first time shooting at this venue and I had such a great time exploring different areas that we would use for their first look, portraits and detail shots. Before these two lovebirds enjoyed their first look, Monica sent Chris a heartfelt video message just prior to her greeting him around the back of the main reception hall where a large texas state flag was painted. The perfect backdrop for such an awesome couple. They exchanged gifts, kisses and tons of laughs as I captured them seeing each other for the last time before becoming husband and wife.
What more could you ask for in a wedding reception? These two had great cake (I had two slices), lots of smiles, a fog machine first dance, hilarious toasts and endless laughs. Monica and Chris are my personal pick for couple of the decade! (Does that award exist?) Everything up to and including their glow stick exit was so fun and easygoing and I at the end of the night I love feeling like I was a part of something epic. Sometime I have to stop and remind myself that I'm so so blessed that I get to document such amazing people on their most important day. This wedding was one for the books!!
