My story with Tamanya is a unique one. You see, she lives in Philadelphia although she was raised here in San Antonio and her family is still here. She was going to be visiting her family here a while back and wanted family pictures taken while she and her sister were both in town and their family was all together. She took it upon herself to find a local photographer and make arrangements for a family photo session in Landa Park, thankfully she found me and I immediately liked them. Fast forward a year or so later and she contacted me from Philly again, this time to be her WEDDING photographer, her San Antonio wedding that is. She is also going to have another ceremony in Philly for her husband’s side of the family and I’m truly bummed that I can’t travel there and photograph that one for her as well! We met up here locally once prior to the wedding but other than that, all arrangements and such were made cross-country and she & her family did a great job of pulling things together. By the end of the evening I wanted her family to formally adopt me, such fun-loving gracious people!! Her mother had mariachis and dancers come to the ceremony to entertain the wedding party & guests and I enjoyed learning more about Hispanic wedding traditions. They wanted their day to be fun as well which I think you’ll be able to tell by some of the pictures below. Tamanya, thank you for asking me to be a small part of your special day. I hope you enjoy your sneak peeks & that your Philly ceremony is just as special.
I loved this tradition of everyone placing flowers for the bride & groom to exit on after the ceremony
Cute first kiss as husband & wife!
One of my fave moments to capture……the bride & groom after the ceremony is finished
How fun is THIS?!!!
The San Antonio Riverwalk was only a block away from the ceremony location thankfully
I love their flowers & rings
My personal fave……
I SO enjoyed watching her clap, sing & enjoying singing along w/the Mariachis
Some fun details….
One of the Mariachis got a bit flirty but she was having none of that! Lol.
Some of the dancers during the reception
A hug for Daddy
Thank you again for allowing me to enjoy & be a small part of your wedding day, hope you had fun re-living some moments of the day through these images. 🙂
