SAN ANTONIO FERNANDO CATHEDRAL + WESTIN RIVERWALK WEDDING RECEPTION – Power couple Alanna and David tied the knot a couple of weekends back at the beautiful San Fernando Cathedral. I love love these two, and you can see the engagement session here and the moment David popped the question. The wedding reception was a few blocks away at the Westin Riverwalk.
There is so much emotion in this wedding you’re going to have to brace yourself. So, I’m not a writer, but a photographer. So let’s get on with it, shall we! These are my favorite curated images from their wedding day, all shot with Leica Rangefinders and available light. Delighted to work with Christian Margain who I haven’t seen since a few cold beers last summer and an insane day with Nat Turner, film guy of Compnaynfilms.

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.
