Ashley Chris This summer I had the absolute pleasure of documenting Ashley & Chris’s wedding that took place at Knolle Farm & Ranch in San Patricio. It was definitely a wedding I was looking forward to. I had previously photographed their engagements as well as Ashley’s bridals. Knolle Farm & Ranch is one of those venues that makes wedding photographer’s jobs extremely easy. The girls got ready in the bed and breakfast and the guys had one of the independant cabins to relax in before the wedding. We couldn’t have asked for better weather that afternoon – the lighting was gorgeous.

Jaime & Michael’s wedding was held at Corpus Christi’s Art Center, downtown on Shoreline. It was the first wedding that I have photographed where the park alongside the Art Center was utilized for the ceremony. It is such a beautiful little park with so much potential, and Jaime and Michael capitalized on it. The Australian Pines, green grass, and small hills allowed for a somewhat private wedding ceremony. After the ceremony, they had their reception in the Art Center’s courtyard with beautiful decorating by Razzle Dazzle. They had a new (to me) concept in place for their guest favors – rather than providing each guest a candle, or candy, or souvenir, Jaime & Michael provided a token with each guest’s place setting, valued at $1 – then guests had a choice among three different local non-profit groups as to where their $1 went.

0 A mutual friend introduced me to Kim and Kris who were planning their wedding at a friend’s farm outside of Portland, Texas. It was the first time I had been out to this road along Nueces Bay and loved the space and the views. Kim and Kris had a very simple, but effective plan for their wedding ceremony and reception. They utilized rocks that Kim’s mother had picked up as place cards (and they also worked to hold the tablecloths down in the winds we had.) I also loved their wedding cake – if I’m not mistaken, the maid-of-honor made the topper herself. This was a good old-fashioned DIY wedding, from the decorations to the food, they essentially made their own wedding as beautiful as it could be.

Kayla and Will were looking to have their engagement session done on Padre Island near Bob Hall Pier – so we decided to meet up for their engagement session on the beach one late afternoon to give us about 45 minutes of shooting time before the sun set. The two were very eager for their session and excited once we started shooting. They really didn’t need much guidance and were lots of fun to work with. The weather could not have been better and we had beautiful blue skies with white clouds – perfect beach engagement weather. /brCouple sitting in the dunes waiting for the sun to set during a beach engagement session on Padre Island

K and B were married in late August at the Ranch at San Patricio, a large beautiful venue that can accommodate weddings of all sizes. They have a little white chapel with rustic pews for guests to sit in during the ceremony as well as a large ‘dance hall’ that is perfect for entertaining large crowds. There are numerous photo opportunities throughout the ranch, and those couples that book their wedding there have the advantage of being able to have engagements and bridals photographed there as well. From a photographer’s standpoint, this venue is one that excites you to find out the wedding will be there. I enjoyed every aspect of K & B’s wedding and spent most of the day there with them – from K’s hair and makeup through the end of the dancing. B’s mom did a fantastic job with the flower arrangements throughout the ranch. The cupcake stand is one of my favorite things – I’ve only seen one similar before (at Sarah & Matt’s wedding). B apparently constructed it for the wedding out of mesquite wood.

On August 13, I had the pleasure of photographing Janice & Tim’s wedding day events here in Corpus Christi. I started off the wedding day accompanying Janice and her bridesmaids in their Omni Bayfront suite overlooking Corpus Christi Bay. Then it was off to their ceremony in the magnificent Corpus Christi Cathedral with a reception that followed at the Ortiz Center overlooking the Port of Corpus Christi. The Omni Bayfront provides such beautiful rooms to photograph in, and the suites overlook the bay, which ensures that beautiful, bright light spill in the floor to ceiling windows. I took this time to get some shots of Janice’s accessories, such as her beautiful dress, shoes and both of their rings. I also got plenty of shots of the girls in action (the bridesmaids, stylists and makeup artist.) I had my sister come along to shoot with me so that I could leave her with the ladies while I went with Tim and the guys to Lawrence Street to get a few shots infront of the locally famous “No Parking” painted across from Aria. We then hustled over to the cathedral and eagerly awaited the beginning of their ceremony. The Corpus Christi Cathedral […]

Tiffany and I met through a business networking group earlier this year. She was planning her wedding and still needed a photographer for her event – and I happened to be available for her date. It had been years since I was last at the Rockport Country Club back when I delivered stone for a living (no joke) and I looked forward to all that the beautiful course would bring to the table. I arrived a little early so that I could take a look around and evaluate what equipment I needed to bring inside. When I got there, Razzle Dazzle was already busy decorating. Tiffany & Billy went with (what else) Tiffany Blue as her main color which looked fantastic throughout the country club. They had also put together a small candy bar and had a cupcake-cake for anyone who didn’t want their traditional wedding cake. The gorgeous five tier cake was made by Simply Elegant by Raymond. The ceremony was held right outside the club house under the coastal Live Oaks overlooking the golf course. A simple ceremony kept the guests from getting too warm and ensured that we had plenty of light for group formals outside on […]

Ashlee was referred to me by one of my previous brides, Christie. Ashlee had already lined up a photographer for her wedding day but wanted me to photograph her bridals. We met at Starbucks one afternoon (since I was still renovating my office space) and talked about her expectations and ideas about the session. Ashlee showed me a few examples she had seen online but mainly wanted to have a setting a little more rustic.

Wedding photography in Corpus Christi is always taking me to new venues. Megan contacted me a few months back about shooting her wonderful wedding, including ceremony at First Presbyterian Church and reception at Moravian Hall on New Year’s Day. I had shot once before at Moravian Hall, but never had experienced the beauty of First Presbyterian’s sanctuary. Megan wanted to ensure that everything would be covered since the men and ladies would be getting ready in separate areas, so I enlisted the help of Hillary Kramer to assist and second shoot. We both had a good time shooting, and the bride, groom and guests had a great time during the Grand March.

Last night I had one of the most intimate beach weddings out in Port Aransas, right at sunset. Though it was a little last minute (Lyndie got in touch with me about three weeks ago) I’m glad I took her up on her request of me to shoot her wedding. I don’t have time right now to post a full teaser, but I decided I’d throw up four shots before I get on the road. Thank you so much Lyndie for getting in touch with me – I had a great time. Congratulations! Update – I was able to add a few more shots from this gorgeous Port Aransas beach wedding.

Here’s another wedding that is long overdue for appearing here. In fact, Christie & Daryl just celebrated their first anniversary over the weekend – so a big congratulations to the two of them. Christie and I knew each other from high school, and when she first approached me about photographing her wedding, I was a little nervous because I knew that her mom had worked with a few local photographers and is quite capable when it comes to being behind the lens. I knew everything was going to be alright when we did Christie’s bridals (soon to be blogged as well) at Mansion Royal (her wedding venue) as well as off of Holly Road in a field of yellow wildflowers. Both Christie and Daryl are fun loving individuals and surround themselves with fun friends – making for great shots during the reception. They had their ceremony at St. Johns Methodist Church with reception following at Mansion Royal. This was the first full wedding that I shot alongside my wife, Rebekah and we both had a great time. Bekah was a little nervous when I left her with Christie and her bridesmaids so that I could go find Daryl and the […]
