Awhile back I got a call from Monica Sawyer, the owner of The One Bride Guide. She asked if I would be willing to shoot the cover for the fall edition of her magazine. It was one of the best phone calls I got in the last year. All I can say is that it was one of the best experiences I have had so far as a photographer. First off, the crew and the model were AMAZING! Josh Salinas and Greg Ybarra from Josh and Co. and Get Jewled did makeup and design. They were so great to work with and made everything look beautiful! Everyone had amazing ideas and we all worked so well together. Our model, Alicia Renck, was super amazing! She was up for anything. She didn’t back down even when the camel came right to her and tried to eat her face (OK maybe an over exaggeration)! All she did was pet it and give it a kiss! Of corse that led to great photos.
The other thing that was so great about the shoot was the location! How many of you have driven to San Antonio and passed that huge white house on the right hand side of the road outside Mathis? Yeah, that is where we took the photos! Dancing Elk Ranch is opening up to be a venue for weddings and it is too cool for words. The place is HUGE and packed with beautiful animals. All of these things, including good weather, led to an amazing photo shoot that I will never forget. The best part is that the cover has already given me great business and I am already booking next year. So, if you are getting married next year and need someone to photograph or film your wedding, don’t wait! Contact me now!
