It Only Takes TWO to make a DESTINATION portrait work! {San Antonio Destination Portrait Photographer}

How do these DESTINATION portraits work?
Here is the scoop:
Do you have a favorite Vacation spot that would be PERFECT for your next family portrait?
We would LOVE to go with you and make that a reality!

If we are only going for you, there is a session fee, a minimum order and hotel/airfare expenses involved. IF, you can get another family to join you on your vacation and I can do their portrait session as well at the same location, then the hotel/airfare expenses are waived.
In some cases, if we plan the trip well in advance, I can advertise that we are going in the hopes that someone else would love to join us at that location. Each family will have their own portrait session on different days/times.

Such is the case for our EUROPEAN EXCURSION coming up next summer, June 2015.
We are planning to visit London, Paris and several smaller towns in Germany (can you say CASTLES?) I have one session secured for Paris and am currently working on getting another in Paris (or surrounding areas) or one in London, or in Germany. As long as there is TWO, we are a GO! Just think of the amazing architectural beauty and history that could be captured in your Once-in-a-Lifetime Portrait Session in Europe! Currently, we are working on dates and is looking like it will be about June 9-25, starting off in Paris and ending in London. Exact itinerary still in the works and we are still a bit flexible.

So, here are some of the locations that have been mentioned by clients as a possibility. None of these have dates or anything...yet.

Breckenridge, Colorado
Park City, Utah
Both of these locations have an incredible place that would make for stunning portraits...ICE CASTLES

not to mention incredible mountain views and something we rarely see in San Antonio...SNOW!

Puerto Rico
Costa Rica
St. Lucia
Bahamas
Playa del Carmen
Cabo san Lucas
Destin, Florida
Yellowstone National Park
Crested Butte, Colorado
Oregon
Tahiti

If any one of these locations is your favorite spot, chances are there is 
someone else that is wanting to go there too!

Fees:
Destination Session (sunrise or sunset...total 3 hours max)....$650
Minimum Purchase....$2000
OR
The Complete Destination Package...by quotation
Have Elizabeth spend all day with you!
Multiple Locations included.

The Wedding of Melissa and Justin {San Antonio Wedding Photographer}

It is crazy to think how long I have known Melissa.  I photographed her sister's wedding 11 years ago. Her brother's senior portraits even before that. And her family portrait sometime in between. In fact, her mom reminded me that this was their 12th portrait/wedding experience with me. WOW! I am humbled. Blown away that through the years this fabulous family has continued to use me for all of their big life events.

I met Justin as we planned the wedding photography. What a great guy, a total romantic. We had a great time at the engagement portraits created in Gruene. A beautiful spring morning, a gorgeous location and a couple in love. It just doesn't get any better than that!





 
 
 


 






Another beautiful day, we photographed Melissa's Bridal Portrait at the gorgeous, newly restored event location, The Veranda. We had a blast photographing in this place that I had never photographed in before. I loved playing with all the different vignettes The Veranda had to offer. Melissa looked stunning, of course!






 



Happy Wedding Day to Melissa and Justin!
