Stonebriar Nuptials.

Weddings remind me why I got into professional photography in the first place.  My whole life, I've been a bit of a romantic for reasons that I've never really understood.  I share this with whoever comes across this, because I think it's important to be a little vulnerable in these posts.  If you don't know me, or who I am, you don't know if we'll connect.  A wedding day is a milestone in everyone's life.  It's a privilege to be asked to be a part of that for someone, and I understand that before undertaking it.  I mention this now, because this venue, Stonebriar Country Club, is sort of where my career as a wedding photographer began.  I snapped a few photos for fun at a friend's wedding at this beautiful place, and it was after seeing them, that I knew I wanted to do it more.

I first met Megan some 3 or 4 years ago through a mutual friend.  She's a teacher, and a sports nut.  I didn't meet Greg until after they were already engaged, but it turns out that they became engaged on my birthday of all days.  When I heard they were getting married, I reached out to Megan to offer my congratulations.  It was during that conversation, she mentioned they still needed a photographer and would love to see what I've been up to.  After meeting with her, her husband to be, and her family, I was asked to be a part of their day.  Needless to say, I was excited to be going back to this place, and to witness their union through my lens.

The ceremony was beautiful.  It doesn't feel like work at a wedding that goes as planned.  The couple is happy.  The guests are excited.  All I have to do is wait for the moments to happen.

After the ceremony, the couple was kind of enough to brave the 102 degree Texas heat and put the landscape to good use.  I'm glad they did, because these were some of the best shots of the day.

The wedding was an amazing success.  My team did an incredible job.  I wish Megan and Greg a life of health and happiness, and I'm lucky to be able to call them my friends.
