Found this gem of a wedding in a hard drive I was going through and I wanted to share it with y’all. I photographed this wedding back in 2012 for this lovely couple. I still remember driving up to the church and getting off and feeling the sun hit me. I remember how nervous the groom was. I remember the beautiful shots we took for them and how excited I was to show them off the back of my little screen on my DSLR.
This couple had their wedding ceremony at their home church with close friends, family, and loved ones. It was a beautiful and emotional ceremony. Soon after the couple celebrated as newly weds at the the beautiful mcallen wedding venue known as Rancho Quinta Luz located off 495 in McAllen, Texas. There we celebrated with them capturing all their fun and special moments. Here are my favorite shots from this wedding.

Mindy and I have been friends since our days back at B.L. Garza Middle School. Many years later, Mindy now teaches at the same middle school. It’s funny how time flies and two childhood friends cross paths again, It’s a beautiful thing when you get to photograph a friends wedding.
Mindy married an amazing guy, Mr. Adrian Elizondo. I really got to know Adrian at their engagement photo shoot in San Antonio, Texas. He such fun guy and very eloquent as well. Mindy and Adrian are perfect for each other!
The couple had their ceremony at Sacred Heart Catholic Church in Edinburg, Texas (where we also took Mindy’s bridal) and they continued their celebration at Salon Real Del Valle. Mindy looked gorgeous in her wedding dress and Mr. Adrian looked dapper in his tux. Their ceremony was sweet and filled with family and friends. The newly weds then took their formal portraits at their newly acquired home. They thought it would be special to be photographed as man and wife at their very own home. I loved the idea! We then ended the night partying with the couple at their beautiful reception. These are some of our favorite shots from their wedding.

Aaron and Chloe’s Wedding was as a beautiful as anyone could imagine it. Aaron looked dapper in his suit and Chloe looked stunning in her white wedding gown. I had already photographed this couples engagement session and Chloe’s bridal session, so I knew this couple were going to look stunning together.
The couple married at the beautiful Our Lady of Sorrows Church in the heart of McAllen, Texas. After the ceremony we took portraits at the Nuevo Santander Gallery located on Main Street a minute or two from the church.
The party resumed at the couples wedding venue, The Social Club, in Edinburg, Texas. This venue is one of my favorite venues to photograph at because it’s not super huge and they always decorate it super well. Here the couple danced the night away and enjoyed their family and friends.

Iliasis Muniz is a super talented up and coming photographer out of the South Padre Island area. She has been creating lively art for her clients for over 3-years now and has big ambitions to expand way beyond the Rio Grande Valley. She’s bubbly, giggly and a lot of fun! Definitely important qualities to have in the photography industry. For anyone who is familiar with photography personality, Jasmine Starr, Ms. Iliasis Muniz tends to remind me of her a lot, but of course, Iliasis has her own flair and unique qualities that allow her to stand out.
I had the pleasure of meeting Ms. Iliasis for the first time this past Tuesday. What I really enjoyed was that she turned out to be exactly how you would imagine her being just by her personality on social. And to top it off she was so nice and brought me an unexpected gift. We met at Moonbeans in McAllen, Texas and talked about photography, business and life. Then we produced this pretty cool video interview laying out a little bit of her story. I think till this date this is one of my favorite episodes of The Photographer Series! Check it out, enjoy it, and let us know what you think!
