Emily’s cotton field modeling session was THE BEST! I literally took one image of her in the cotton field with the sun setting behind her and knew I had captured something worth submitting to image competition. Of course, we took more… but I just couldn’t believe how beautiful this could be with my lens closed all the way down to F22. It was captivating!
Emily is a Floresville senior who answered a summer model call for me. I took one look at this dress… this gorgeous dress! and knew I must shoot Emily… with my camera. Her dress reminded me of someone’s China pattern… someone’s expensive China pattern. Emily helped me capture some images for competition and I think she did a fantastic job!
For the record, I only scored a 75 with her image (at least an 80 is the goal). I can’t seem to break the curse of the “average professional.” However, I do have an appointment later this week with my competition and printer master guru, Rocco Ancora. Hopefully, he will counsel me to help choose an image or two worthy of a merit that is “above average skill and technique in most areas.” I have some more from this same session that I think may work; we’ll see what he says.

I am a San Antonio-based wedding photographer and I cater to outdoor-loving couples who prefer to have all the realness captured on their wedding days. I am the wedding photographer for the outdoor adventurers, the romantics, the laid back, the snugglers, and those who wish to capture all their realness.
I am absolutely in love with capturing the kinds of weddings where there are more hugs than handshakes, the dance floor rumbles all night long, and chairs are pretty much rendered useless after dinner. Whiskey bottles are passed around, most of the wedding party has been best-best friends since kindergarten, Grams is likely to lose her shoes and your partner is much more emotional than you are. These kinds of weddings are my jam!
I started Ata-Girl Photography Co., LLC in 2010. I firmly believe that the unique set of circumstances I have faced in life has prepared me to take a personal and genuine interest in my photography clients. I enjoy documenting the important milestones and captivating moments in people’s lives. I love being a part of people’s journey and consider myself privileged to document their legacies.
I am a WPPI-C certified professional, full-time wedding photographer. I specialize in a 10-day image delivery, same-day prints, same-day slideshows, Italian handcrafted wedding albums and I have a mobile meeting space.
When I’m not behind my camera, you can find me hiking, cycling, backpacking, camping, enjoying water sports, listening to music (Elvis and Prince), hunting for arrowheads, reading audiobooks, occasionally eating a few glazed donuts (my only weakness to sweets) and then re-starting my keto diet about every 10 days. The most important things in life are for me to see my two daughters happy and to create a family history my grandparents and grandson would be proud of.
