From shooting their engagement photos, to traveling with my team to Fredericksburg, Texas to document their wedding day, I have been photographing Britny and Ignacio’s special moments up to now. Being given the opportunity to once more be a part of another milestone in their lives by photographing their baby announcement was exciting!
Britny had great ideas. She wanted a theater as the location to shoot this announcement. We scouted around town and decided to use the Edinburg Municipal Auditorium and the Citrus Theater located down town Edinburg, Texas. Tell us how we did, these are our favorite shots.
Congratulations, Britny and Ignacio!

Excited to share Gabie and Manuel’s engagements that we took at the popular photo shoot venue in Weslaco, Texas, Casa Polonia! We did a set of outdoor and indoor photos for them. This couple was so much fun to work with. They trusted me with some of my crazy angles and ideas and I’m glad they did because I really love how their photos came out.
Although I love all of them, I have a few favorite because of the meaning behind them. The first one is the one with the blue color gel light; I love that one because it adds a mood to something often shot and I also love it because they trusted me to get out of my comfort zone to be creative. The second photo I’m super proud of is the McDonald’s ice cream cone engagement shot because they said their first date many years ago was at that same park with two delicious ice cream cones.

Photography Lesson: Composition
A while back I met up with my good friend Edna, who is an amazing photographer, to do a photography lesson on composition. To be honest I don’t know why she does lessons with me because her work is amazing already but I’ll take any moment to teach anyone who’s passionate about photography and getting better with a camera.

The photo is really well balanced from the top and from the bottom. This is important in when composing a shot because you never know when your client may want to purchase a print. I always teach my photographers to shoot for print and this shot was perfectly shot with that in mind. The pose / body also forms a triangle and that is important to note because the human eye is attracted to simple shapes and if you can create those simple shapes through human poses you have won the eye. I also encouraged her to shoot from an angle so we can get the leading lines formed by the bridge and rails. This helps the viewer follow the lines to your subject.

Often you find yourself near a set a stairs and want to pose your subject on the steps, which is what we did here. If it’s a long stairway I always suggest to sit the model 3 to 4 steps up from the bottom to allow some space above the head. In the photo above my student Edna gave enough space to frame the subject in the stairway. This setting was perfect for applying repetition, which is another important tool to use in composition. I was able to help see the shape in the body and the repetition of the stairs for the composition.
Kudos to my student Edna, as mentioned before, she’s already an amazing photographer and sharpening up her composition skills will just make her better. You can view here work her at this link: swankyfoto

Nothing better than getting married close to Christmas time! This beautiful couple tied the knot surrounded with family and friends. The couple had their ceremony at the beautiful Sacred Heart Church in Edinburg, Texas. We then took the bridal party to the Edinburg City Hall and then the bride and groom finished their portrait session at a private residence.
The couple then celebrated their marriage with family and friends at one newest venues in the Rio Grande Valley, the Palazzio Event Center in Alamo, Texas. The party was filled with lots of fun, emotions and laughter. Here are some of my favorite shots from this wedding.
