March 28, 2018  •  9 Comments

Helena and Brandon met by chance one day at the rec center for UTSA students.  It was truely love at first sight for this young couple, but grew into a strong bond that through faith and the support of their families would prepare them for this emotional wedding day at Hayes Hollow at Hidden Falls.  The couple chose to honor their faith by having Brandon's pastor and uncle officiate the ceremony.  They chose their best friends, including their beloved dogs Red and Blue to stand with them as they took their vows overlooking the picturesque waterfall at this modern, rustic Texas venue.

Your wedding photography from Hayes Hollow is everything San Antonio wedding photography should be. Joyous, heartfelt moments throughout the entire day. The expression you captured during the father daughter dance is one of my favorite moments.

Love this wedding at Hayes Hollow in Hidden Falls TX! It's awesome that they included their dogs in the wedding ceremony. My FAVE photo is of the bride and her dad hugging after he walked her down the aisle and her dress is so perfectly laid out on the ground and emphasized by how you shot the photo.
