Odessa and Sergio

From San Diego to San Antonio in the span of 1 week I shot 2 friends weddings in 2 different states. Even though I technically DON’T DO WEDDINGS! Ironic, isn’t it?
I had one solid hour all alone with this couple and that was SO glorious! Every photographers dream. We got so many fun shots, and this is the very narrowed down version of some that I loved.

I love this one….moody and serious with the beautiful stained glass of the San Antonio LDS temple in the background.

The flowers on the grounds were beautiful!

Sergio surprised Odessa with her ring…he had told her it hadn’t arrived yet and she was so excited to actually have it!

Out of order, I shot this one at the beginning…already fulfilling the wife duties, he asked her to shave him because he didn’t have a mirror to do it himself:) It was really cute and funny.
I love this fountain in the background.

The beautiful spire on top of the temple.
Cake cutting at the reception…her jewelry was made by his aunt and given to her there.
I love this laughing one, they are just so happy.
I missed a lot of what the emcee was saying because it was in Spanish. But I believe they were instructed to passionately kiss because he grabbed her fiercly, as the other men watched on.
Then those men grabbed him and began throwing him up in the air over and over. It was hilarious and so fun to capture…I like Odessa watching on off to the side.

Sergio is a great dancer and led his wife beautifully in the dance.

Almost all of Odessa’s sisters…one missing.

We saw this butterfly and I had to grab a shot of it.
