Oak Valley Vineyards Texas Wedding | Kevin & Leann

I’m shocked it took me this long to post today’s Oak Valley Vineyards wedding in Texas from a few years ago! This wedding was extra super mega special to me for a few reasons. First off, I love traveling for sessions and weddings. The biggest reason, though, is because it was my best friend’s wedding! Not only was I lucky enough to photograph this amazing day, I also pulled double-duty as Matron of Honor! As a photographer, sometimes it’s fun to be able to go to a wedding and enjoy myself as a guest. For this wedding, however, there was NO WAY I wasn’t going to capture Leann as a gorgeous bride!

Wedding Day Magazine Spring/Summer 2021 Cover Shoot

Back in November, I got a random Instagram message from a florist that I had never worked with before, asking me to take part in a styled session. I was super skeptical because a) I didn’t know this florist and b) the session was like 2 days away! Is this a scam? Am I going to get murdered?? Well, I took a chance and agreed to participate in the Holiday Glam styled session with Alex Nazar Floral and Brittany from 1945 Event Co. I am SO glad I took that chance, because then Brittany asked me to take part in today’s blog post, for the Wedding Day magazine Spring/Summer 2021 cover shoot!!
