Joshua & Mariah’s wedding day was filled with laughter & happy tears.
It was an incredible day & I was so happy to be apart of it.
When we first met last year for our consultation, I knew I wanted to work with Mariah & Josh right away. They are so sweet together.
Mariah & Josh decided to do a first look on their wedding day. How can I even begin to describe how incredible their first look was. It not only allowed for them to spend time together just the two of them before their ceremony, but it provided so many gorgeous photographs before their ceremony & they had plenty of time after their ceremony for even more photographs! You can just imagine how many beautiful photographs they were able to receive. As I waited with Josh for Mariah to arrive for their first look, Josh could not contain his excitement. He kept telling me, “you just have no idea how long I have been waiting for this moment!” As soon as Joshua turned to see his bride, that will truly be a memory I will hold on forever. It is one of those moments, that time stands still for. As I stood there in silence photographing the two of them embracing, I thought to myself, “This is it. This is the reason why I love to photograph weddings.”
Take a peek at their September 4th Wedding day! I think you will love their photographs, as much as I do!

This photo makes my heart so happy 🙂
The necklace that Mariah wore on her wedding day, was the very necklace Mariah’s mommy wore on her wedding day too.
Does it get any sweeter than that?
Mariah really wanted to have a first look with her daddy and we made sure that happened! It was a super emotional moment for them. I found myself tearing up while photographing them & again while editing! Such a sweet moment between daughter & daddy.
I met Joshua outside to prep him for his first look. He could not stop smiling & chatting! Lol!

Josh & Mariah’s first look…
Since Joshua & Mariah decided to do a first look before their wedding ceremony, they had SO much time for photographs & time for just the two of them.
I love these two photos…

Love working at the Granberry Hills, San Antonio, Texas.
Granberry Hills has two venues on their property, this is the Hillside venue & it is so pretty!!
I loved their cake set up. Instead of one tiered cake, they had 7 mini cakes & they were all different flavors! So cute!!
