Deedra and Arron’s grand wedding at Mission Concepcion and reception at St.Anthony Hotel in San Antonio, Texas. Before all the storms made their way to south Texas, Deedra and Aaron tied the knot in style!

Loved working with this couple. Aaron and Deedra are so down to earth, and I very much enjoyed photographing the ‘life’ of their wedding day.

Mission Concepcion, established in 1716 was created to convert a Native American tribe to Catholicism and become Spanish citizens. The working church is charming and worthy of its designation as a historic landmark.

The St.Anthony historic hotel, built in 1909, was once considered one of the most luxurious and technologically advanced hotels in its day. Presidents, movies stars, well, famous people have stayed over the years. Recently, the hotel has been spruced up and looks super elegant restoring her to the opulence and grandness.
Delightful to work with photographer and dear friend, Kurtis Kronk who, I was fortunate to have as a second shooter. San Antonio has so many amazing artists in a growing community, and that is great to see.

Scroll through my favorite images from their wedding day, all shot with a couple of Leica Rangefinders.

All-Inclusive Wedding Day Storytelling

If you like what you see, reach out! I have a cool English accent; I’m dashing, handsome and funny – so my wife says. Seriously though, I love the craft of photography, I’m a former news photographer and a documentary street photographer. I capture weddings throughout Texas from a fly on the wall perspective. You’ll not notice me. My photos are candid and delightfully artistic with a splash of color and monochrome.
