When I was about 13 I went to a sleepover birthday out at La Cantera Resort and fell in love with the venue. We stayed in one of the casitas and even though it was raining all day, I made it a point to swim in all the pools and go down the slide. I’ll never forget it! I also never thought that I’d photograph a wedding at the same place 15 years later. When Eka emailed me about her wedding day, I was ecstatic to hear it was at La Cantera.
With the Texas Hill Country as their natural backdrop, Eka and Darren had such a beautiful outdoor ceremony. It was extra special as Darren’s Dad officiated the wedding and did an incredible job. My good friend Tiffany flew down to shoot with me. We met working in Hawaii together and it was so nice to be shooting side by side again. The night ended with some traditional sparkler shots, but with the help of Eka’s creativity and Tiffany’s second pair of hands, we captured some badass light painting shots too!
