Jessica: A Deconstructed Ranch Bridal Session

December 21st, 2011

Two days before Jessica’s gorgeous wedding, we met at her grandparent’s ranch for a super laid back, deconstructed bridal session. Jessica donned her mother’s wedding dress – custom fit and redesigned for her style, cowboy boots, and a bouquet that I crafted for the occasion. The day was filled with emotion, mosquitoes, and dreamy afternoon sunshine – the last we’d see for the remainder of the weekend. Jessica is, by far, one of the most classic beauties I have ever met. Her style is effortless – as evidenced by these photos. Sans makeup or professional hairstyling, she is still radiant. Gorgeous. Jessica: I wish we would have had our afternoon with wildflowers, but I’m so very thankful for our day at the ranch. xoxo

Always Love,
Athena

    

Jessica + Matt : Dripping Springs Wedding

December 12th, 2011

I don’t know where to begin — What to say, how to eloquently express the appreciation, gratitude, and love that I have for Jessica and Matt.  Their trust, honesty, and faith in me as I began my photography career is a gift that I can never repay.  I was so honored to be a part of their rainy, Dripping Springs wedding, and am blessed to call them friends.  Jessica and Matt, I hope you enjoy your preview, and I hope you had an amazing time in Jackson. (I had a hard time narrowing down my favorites, so please be advised:  this is the longest photo post ever.)

Always Love,
A
