After first meeting Lianie & David in Belize, the following day they invited us out to their family ranch to hang out. I have been to many ranches before but this was magical! Just off the beaten path outside of San Ignacio and likely impossible for us to find without the guidance of David & Lianie leading us there. We rode horses to watch the sunset from the top of a hill and drank out of coconuts hand cut by David with a machete. (You can see me attempting/failing to do the same in my about me video). Afterwards, Lianie’s dad invited us to watch the super bowl game at their home in San Ignacio (which was also where the wedding was held). I might not get very excited about sports but it was the perfect set-up for the game and we had a blast celebrating Denver’s win with local Belkin & nachos made from scratch by the family. When Mark & I came back out to shoot the engagement session and wedding we wanted to make sure to get photos of David & Lianie at the magical ranch that they (& now us) are so attached to.

Mimi & Conor recently said their vows in Antigua Guatemala and I am making this post from Belize! While Mimi lived in D.C. at the time of the session they have now moved on to Louisiana where both are now based in the military. I can’t wait to share the photos the two of them hanging out IN Lake Atitlan!
Corrine and Nick wanted to do their engagement session at their wedding venue to showcase the bucolic charm that the Lodge Event Center in Fredericksburg has to offer. With central Texas having been blessed with a wonderfully wet spring this year the landscape was singing with color and freshness. I can’t wait to photograph their wedding here later this year. It will be such a blast.
As a photographer it is always exciting to shoot somewhere new! Although I have lived in the great city of Austin for over 5 years and lived within 2 miles of the Hotel St Cecilia I had never had the opportunity to photograph an engagement session there. Raimy contacted me 2 months before he had planned to propose to Shera ensuring that I would be available during their stay at the hotel and just a day after he proposed to her in that very same spot. How special it is that I got to capture them in a spot that will always hold such fond memories to them.
