Casa Polonia in Weslaco, Texas has become one of our favorite locations to photograph our couples lately. It’s super versatile yet challenging. The location has so much to offer and you can capture beautiful shots from every angle. The owner Mike is also such a swell guy. He has always accommodated us when we are in a bind. Thank you Mike, You are truly a friend!
When my clients and I were looking for places to shoot in Weslaco we had overlooked Casa Polonia. The couple had a few other places in mind but every session we scheduled at those locations never happened due to some circumstance like weather or scheduling conflicts. Then finally we found Casa Polonia and we booked it. The client and after they saw the photos of the location they fell in love with the place and we booked it.
The day of the shoot was a little challenging but nothing I couldn’t handle. I took on this shoot alone without an assistant and I am glad I did because I really got to bond with the couple. When we arrived to the location there was day light but quickly left us. All I had for lighting was my simple one strobe light with a silver reflecting umbrella. I call this my lazy-man-light-setup. Well I took on the shoot at night and thanks to creative decision making [aka slow shutter shinnigans] and patient clients I was able to create these beautiful images.

Mrs. Martha, who too is an amazing wedding photographer, looks stunning in her bridal photos. We took these at the Villa De Cortez a reception and event facility located in the center of Weslaco’s downtown historic district. This venue is very romantic and vintage, which is perfect for these type of photos.
On this photo shoot I used a mixture of studio light with a softbox and natural light. When it comes to bridal sessions you want to try to be the most creative you can possible. One of my favorite photos from this set is the 5th photo that has golden light on the bride. Martha was so much fun to work with. Please check out her photography, as I mentioned she’s such a talented photographer.
