The Wedding of Megan and Dakotah {San Antonio Wedding Photographer}

October 19, 2019
The date Megan and Dakotah said their vows. 
It was a gorgeous day in Denton, Texas where these two beautiful people, surrounded by their friends and family, joined together as husband and wife.
I was so thrilled to be there to capture their day, as I was there for Megan's very first portrait session when she was just a few months old. Megan's family grew up with me as I grew as a photographer and it was just such a joy to be there on this very special day. Now that I have met Dakotah, I know that they are a perfect match and I wish them nothing but happiness in their new life together.

Here a just a few of some of my favorite images from the Wedding Day.

Wedding held at The Springs Event Venue

The SANTA EXPERIENCE 2019! {San Antonio Portraits with Santa}

For the 26th year, Elizabeth and the REAL Santa Claus are teaming up to bring you some AMAZING Portraits with Santa!
We call it The Santa Experience, because it is more than just "pictures with Santa".

Your appointment guarantees you either 15 or 30 minutes with the jolly man in red. No waiting in line. No fake beards or bellies. This is the REAL deal.

With two session options to select from, you have the choice of a quick 15 minutes (Mini Session) or a more relaxed 30 minutes (Storybook Session)  to really "hang out" with Santa. After your session, kids (and parents too) can enjoy our Hot Cocoa Bar to go. The following week, parents will come back in to the studio to view and select their favorite images for Wall Decor, Storybooks and Christmas Cards.

Here are the two Settings we have created for our 2019 Santa Experience:

The Magic of Christmas...November 9th


The Holiday Toy Shoppe...November 17th

The Magical Snowman Portraits...A LIMITED EDITION Opportunity!

As I write this, it is still 96 degrees outside.

We live in South Texas. We don't get snow. At least not very often. I am not going to let this deter me from creating some absolutely gorgeous WINTER portraits!

How, you ask?

You will need to put your imagination into full gear and TRUST ME that your family/kids will look incredible in this beautiful winter scene. It matters NOT what the weather is outside. Who cares that people are looking at you crazy when you are at your favorite store purchasing hats, scarves and mittens while we are still wearing shorts and flip flops?

This session is not for someone who wants 1-8x10 from this experience. This session is for someone who is looking to create a piece of Wall Art that will become part of your yearly Holiday Decor...or maybe even stay displayed proudly year-round.

While all of our product offerings are available, we will be having a SALE on a 10x15 Fine Art Print, completely matted and framed and ready to hang on your wall. Once you purchase this print (or any print of this size or larger) it unlocks the option to get smaller things such as Christmas Cards and Gift Portraits. Since there is so much of my time and artistry involved in creating these Limited Edition Portraits, images must be printed in 5x7 or larger in order for them to be used on a Christmas Card.

This is a One of a Kind Opportunity that you don't want to miss. It's almost like a Hallmark Christmas Movie has come to Artistic Images and your family is the STAR!

Bookings are NOW OPEN and can occur Tuesday-Friday anytime before December 7th in order to have your portraits ready for Christmas. Evenings are an option. Select Saturdays on a limited basis may be available.  Inquire by messaging me HERE.

The 10x15 Fine Art Piece. Matted and Framed.


We can even add a Reindeer instead of the Snowman

How to Have a Relaxing Family Portrait Session

Fall is HERE and so is family portrait season! The weather is finally cooling down, the kiddos are getting settled back in school, and it is time to hang some beautiful new portraits on your wall!

Here are some helpful steps to help making your family portrait session experience a relaxing one.   Scheduling your portrait session with us is the first step to achieving this goal. Fall dates on our calendar go FAST, so make sure to book your session now!


  •      Choose the location for your portraits. Would you like beautiful greenery as your backdrop? Gorgeous architecture? Classy studio portraits? Elizabeth will work with you to choose the best, most beautiful scenery for your portrait session.
  •      Choose where you would like to hang your portraits on your wall. This will help make the ordering process much easier, and help you to have a goal in mind so you can fill up the space with your beautiful work of art.
  •      Pick out your family’s clothes for the session, in advance! Getting everyone in coordinating colors at the last minute adds lots of stress to your day, and will take away from the fun experience. Select the pieces for every member of your family before the session, to make for a peaceful getting ready experience.
  •      On the day of the session, start getting ready in advance. Leave plenty of time to fix stray hairs, touch up makeup, and make sure everyone has the right shoes on. Once everyone is looking absolutely perfect, head to your portrait location early. Arriving to your session 5-10 minutes early will allow you to get everyone out of the car, to meet Elizabeth, and get started right on schedule.
  •      Enjoy this wonderful experience with your family. Soak in this time during your portrait session. The people you love most are all in one place, dressed up, and smiling. These memories will last a lifetime; make sure you do everything in your power to make the best memories and pieces of art that you can.
After nearly 28 years of portrait sessions, Elizabeth knows how to make the best of your day. Take the first step towards an amazing portrait experience by calling and scheduling your session today!

My favorite time of year.
Cooler weather, coffee, scarves, boots, football games and pumpkin spice everything. But most importantly....it's FAMILY PORTRAIT TIME!
