This past winter I had the opportunity to photograph a wedding as a second shooter for my friend Adam, another local wedding photographer. Some wedding photographers view second shooting as beneath them, since it's how a lot of photographers get experience with wedding photography, but whenever I have free dates I love to second shoot with other local photographers. It's a great way to try out new kinds of shots, get more experience at different venues, and of course - simply become a better photographer!
As Alejandro and Ashley aren't my clients I can't tell you very much about them or their wedding, but I do want to share a few images from their magical day for a few reasons. First - because how can I not share images from a wedding I've shot, and second, because I love their venues.
If you're from San Antonio you know of San Fernando Cathedral, across from City Hall. What you may not know is that it is the oldest church in Texas (even older than the missions). It's a beautiful cathedral, and it's easy to photograph. Some churches are so tight and it's impossible to move around, but not at San Fernando Cathedral.
After a full Catholic ceremony, we walked downtown to their reception at Bohanan's. Their friends and family filled the room that was beautifuly decorated. White roses, gold accents, and wine all around. Heart-warming toasts, a romantic first dance, and an atmosphere of love and excitement filled the room until the end of the night.
