This past March I packed up my gear and headed to my hometown of San Antonio, Texas to document the intimate wedding of Michelle and Shaun at Blessed Sacrament Catholic Church. Michelle and I went to high school together, and when I received her call for wedding photography, I was absolutely thrilled! She was actually referred to me by two very dear high school friends whom I have also had the pleasure to photograph in the past. Referrals mean so, so much to me! Thank you!
Michelle did most of her planning from out of state, and I set out to make certain that wedding photography was going to be the least of her worries. They decided to keep everything as simple as possible, with the focus on what’s really important: the ceremony.
And everything came together beautifully!
During our consultation over the phone, I had asked Michelle if she was interested in having a First Look before the ceremony, and shared a few examples with her. I am SO GLAD that she and Shaun liked the idea, and made room in their wedding day timeline for it! Leading up to it, Michelle admitted that she was feeling pretty nervous about the ceremony drawing near, and having that time with Shaun just before the ceremony helped calm her nerves. Her heart-filled thanks afterwards made me so incredibly happy. I absolutely LOVE first looks!
After their very sweet First Look, we all headed inside to cool off and prepare for their ceremony!
Michelle and Shaun, thank you so very much for asking me to document your long awaited big day! Congratulations to you and your beautiful family!– Sasha
