A Perfect Summer Night!

If you have ever read my blog of visited my Facebook page, you know I love stories, I love weddings, and I’m double blessed when I get both in the same evening. Such was the case when I had the pleasure of  photographing Bob and Heather McCarthy’s wedding a few weeks ago.

Although Heather is a new friend, I’ve known Bob and his family for several years.  Spending countless nights at the ball park when he, his twin Jim, and older brother Daniel played little league with our son, and their younger sitter Ellen ran around the park. As “baseball parents” a friendship grew with his mother, Andrea. Over the years we have shared swimming, tri-atholoning, book club and watching our kids navigate through school. So, you can see why I was honored to be asked to record this next amazing step in their lives.

Bob and Heather have dated for several years. I believe they met when both worked  as life guards at the city pool. From what I’ve heard, both Bob and Jim had a bit of a crush on her. And I can see why, she is absolutely darling! She spent the whole day what an infection smile on her face, beaming! Never a ruffled moment.

I hope  you enjoy a few of my favorites!

Every wedding need a little “Audrey Hepburn”

The Girls!


Bob and his crew!

In Jim’s words ” I guess we are kinda breaking up, but I knew it would be over Heather!”

One of the best moments: During his vows, Bob turned to their guess and loudly pronounced  “I DO!”

Tears of joy are the best kind.

Adding to an already perfect occasion was the wonderful new venue “Pecan Springs Ranch” near Dripping Spring, TX.  Although the official open date is September, Paige Smith of Paige One Events and her team created a storybook setting for the wedding and reception. On top of planning and coordinator, she was also the floral designer.The delicious cake was by Jennifer Isler, reception music by Tunes Across Texas. Lighting was by   FILO Designs-Howard Fletcher and additional rentals were provided by Bee Lavish Event Rental. Catering by Carino’s Italian

Last but not least, I’m so thankful to have Kristin of Kristen Joy Photography shooting second with me!
