From the Photographer

Imagine stepping out of your bridal suite into the stunning sunrise with cactus, wild animals and sprawling Texas Hill Country scenery. What an adventure! Courtney and Donovan got a taste of this suite life in the luxury hands of the JL Bar, Ranch and Resort during this adventure styled shoot. The resort boasts personal chefs, shooting ranges, a vast secluded location and much more. Tables were adorned with miniature zebras, candles and flowers alike. After shooting the beautiful tablescape, room details and invitation suite, we had the honor of capturing both the bride and groom getting ready in their separate suites. Kisses were sweet and sun-kissed in front of the main hall and water fountains. We were then whisked off in luxury SUVs to shoot at a secluded location that showcases the beautiful sunset. Guests of the resort can have a dinner party in this spot with a transported bar and servers. The sun set and we were off to one last beautiful scene: the champagne tower and bride and groom cutting the cake. A delicious and beautiful end to a perfect day!
