On Sunday, December 5, I returned to one of my favorite venues, The Vineyards for Celeste and Brian’s wedding. It was a beautiful chilly Autumn day in the Hill Country and I started, coffee in hand at Ken and Debra’s house,  parents of Celeste. It was there, within half an hour I found myself volunteering to babysit their lovely dog – should the need arise!!

With the ceremony and reception held at The Vineyards, the magnificent decor and details on show was fantatsic. The warmth and coziness of the venue was amazing and most everyone pitched in to make the place a winter wonderland (especially mom and daughter).

The challenge for me on this day was to work with the available light and really bring out the softness and ambiance of their day. As always check out a few of my favorites. Lenses used mostly were a 35mm f2, a 50mm f1.4 and a 85mm f1.4.

  1. That day went by SO incredibly fast but with the gift of your photography and talent to capture such amazing moments, I can relive that day over and over again. Thank you for sharing the gift of memories! I will cherish these photos for many, many years.

  2. Philip – I knew when Celeste chose you to photograph their wedding that you were the right choice – BOY did you prove us right!! These photos are stunning and I can’t wait to see the rest.
