A beautiful Hill Country wedding at Our Lady of Perpetual Help Catholic Church and reception at the Chandelier of Gruene. I first met Kailey and Grant many months ago at my studio and loved their love story and humor. They met at a football game in late summer of 2011 and a few years after Grant popped the question on a hot air balloon ride. Kailey is a beautiful lady and as you can see, she’s a lookalike Carrie Underwood.

      This was my first time at The Chandelier of Gruene, located just minutes from historic Gruene, it’s a quite a remarkable new venue. Set on tons of acreage there’s a picturesque open-air chapel and a 12,000-foot venue surrounded by a patio. Just gorgeous.

      It was an honor to work with Rebecca Kaiser, wedding event planner of A Grand Occasion. Adam Swift, a Brit and a dear friend flew in from L.A flew to second shoot the wedding. I was in excellent company including Tomas from Infinity Video.

      These are my favorite images from their wedding day. Please leave your love for the couple in the comments below.



      It was amazing photos!

      Hey! I'm Philip Thomas

      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.
