I’m always daunted when I need to shoot at a place that’s been photographed thousands of times. How will I make something unique? How will I give my bride what she’s picturing without making replicas of what she’s seen on other sites? Aside from the Missions, The McNay Museum is the first choice for portraits in San Antonio. On most afternoons you can see half a dozen photographers wandering the grounds with their clients. It’s always seemed cheesy, not really my scene. For four years I avoided it and always had a long list of ‘better’ locations for clients who wanted to shoot there. But Grace knew from day one that we would shoot at the museum, no questions. She grew up visiting the museum and it’s where she married (yesterday!) the man she loves. I couldn’t (wouldn’t) argue that. So we get there…and it’s incredibly lit. Even better, there are exactly zero other people on the grounds (thank you Fiesta weekend). We took our time, walked all over, gushed about the upcoming wedding and along the way, made some of the simplest, happiest and most authentic bridals I can remember. The lesson in all this rambling, I guess, is that it’s not really about the backdrop. It’s about finding a place where the person in front of my camera feels happy/beautiful/giddy and go with it. And she is all of those things. Thank you, Grace.

Twice as beautiful on the inside. I love this girl. She asked me photograph her engagement, her bridals, and then brought me to Mississippi for her wedding. All together, some of the best images I’ve ever made. All of that trust goes a long way.
