My first blog post....
I am new to this whole "blogging" thing. I've been building and creating my business for two years & I've always known I needed to make a blog. It wasn't until I skyped with my new photographer friend Laura (who by the way, is amazing! See her work here - http://www.beautifulday.photography), and she asked me "Do you have a blog?" and that's just when it clicked.. I need to make one! So I asked myself.. "Where on earth do I start? I've already done so many amazing things that I have not documented on these blog posts." So with that, I figured I may as well just start fresh. I will start with the wedding I just did last night. It was so relaxing, very laid back, and definitely one of my most favorite weddings. Simplistic, small, and intimate, Maria Diaz & Lizbeth Roque had a small backyard wedding here in San Antonio. Only the closest family and friends attended. The atmosphere was so warm and inviting. Sometimes you just receive clients that you know are meant to be in your life as great friends. Liz & Maria are definitely just that! They came all the way to Texas from L.A on super short notice.
We had a beautiful "Bride & Groom" Session. Maria kept Liz giggling the whole time with kisses, tickles, and jokes. Being the first wedding I've ever photographed in a backyard/neighborhood, we took the photos in the front yard. It was hard not to catch some cars or houses in the background of the photos, but luckily we did have a few trees to block the eye sores.
A hot topic I've been asked several times; is my view on same-sex marriage. I have photographed many same-sex weddings & fully support gay rights. There is no reason, in my opinion, that any photographer should turn down clients simply because their sexual preferences are different than what the photographer may personally agree with. Love is love. If it were not for the law being passed that same sex marriage is now legal, most people would still be very judge mental about the weddings I photograph.
"If we are all truly created equal- then truly the love we share for each other must be equal as well." -President Barack Obama
I support gay rights & gay marriage.
