Mariah & Ely

Le San Michele in Buda, Texas

When Covid forced all wedding venues to shut down in March, most of my couples who were supposed to get married that month postponed their weddings. For these two, they opted to get legally married on their original date and then have a La San Michele wedding photoshoot with me in the fall! Because they had already booked me as their wedding photographer, we just split their package between this 3 hour session and another party that I'm going to be shooting for them later. 

We met at this gorgeous venue in Buda, Texas, where Mariah finally got to dress up in her beautiful wedding gown and have a private first-look with Ely. She had me and my associate switch on their song before she came out to reveal herself to him, and they were so emotional that I'll admit I had a hard time controlling the tears. 

After about an hour of taking portraits of the two of them, we all gathered at the front of the house for family portraits with all of their relatives that had come to join in on their day and be a part of the photos.

Hi! I'm Harper, lead photographer/owner. I'm a resident of New Braunfels, wife and mom, and as I type this I'm drinking coffee that's so hot I won't be able to taste anything for the next 2 days.
