Hi there! Welcome to the blog where we share weddings, tips, and photos from recent shoots! Stay a while and say hello!

Hi, I'm Kelly!


Every Wednesday night in San Marcos, Texas, the sounds of bluegrass fill the air. Bluegrass Night at a local coffeeshop brings people together, and on one summer night, it brought Sydney and Daniel together. 

Over the loud music and crowd. a mutual friend introduced Sydney and Daniel. The two had an instant connection and became good friends, building their friendship for almost a year and a half. There was still a spark, and Daniel asked Sydney to be his girlfriend. Together, they enjoyed adventures together, falling more in love with each one. 

In cool February, Daniel knew he wanted to propose in a special way-but also have photo coverage. He reached out to their friend to take photos of the proposal. He covered it up by telling Sydney that they were going to take photos for their friend’s photography portfolio. He asked Sydney to even pick the spot for the photoshoot… little did she know she was choosing where Daniel would propose. As they smiled for photos, and walked to the lake Daniel started telling Sydney how much he loved her and wanted to be with her forever. In the most perfect way, Daniel got down on one knee and asked Sydney to marry him! Sydney said yes!

On a warm July day in Dripping Springs, Texas, Sydney and Daniel promised to love each other for the rest of their loves. Surrounded by family and friends, the two said their vows in the sweetest garden wedding. Sydney and Daniel, I am so glad to have met you both! Your love is all things happy and true and we loved capturing your day. I wish you all the love as you embark on your new adventure… together! XOXO, Kelly

I adored Sydney’s gown. It was so light and lacy-perfect for an outdoor summer wedding!

We loved Sydney’s bouquet made by our friends at The Bloom Bar! 

Sydney’s bridesmaids were… ok the BEST! They were up for anything, never cpmplained, and were there for Sydney! They looked beautiful! 

The couple did not choose to do a first look but still wanted to have a special moment of their own before the ceremony. They opted to hold hands with a door between them and whisper sweet words of love and encouragement to each other. 

See you soon…

Sydney and Daniel wrote love letters to each other… tears of joys! 

I hereby propose that every bride should dance it out moment’s before her ceremony. Even Sydney’s mom joined the pre-party party. 

Daniels’s dad gave the ceremony while sang for the ceremony.


This was the exact moment that the couple had ever kissed…judging by the smiles, it went perfectly! 

The couple slipped away for some couple’s portraits before their reception. 

So much love for that Austin sign! 

Sydney and Daniel don’t play by anyone’s rules. They had pizza for dinner and pie to follow! 

Amongst the mix was a bourbon pecan pie by The Root Cellar Bakery! 

Cutting the Schuster Pie! 

A first dance… 

And the party started! 

A sweet sparkler exit! 

A special thanks for all who made this day amazing!
