Fame & Shame #8

It’s time for another installment of Fame & Shame.  I’m getting ready to go on another short recharging trip.  Woohooo and a TGIF!


  • Time:  You go by soooo slow when I’m anxious about something and then you switch gears and go by soooo fast when that time finally gets here.
  • My Weight Scale:  No matter how hard I work, the darn thing just doesn’t want to move.  However, it doesn’t move in either direction, so I guess that’s a blessing.
  • Oil Changes:  I’m overdue!


  • Olympics:  I love the Olympics, specifically the Summer Olympics… more specifically track and field, gymnastics and volleyball!  In my next life, I WILL BE AN OLYMPIAN!
  • Friends:  This life would be impossible to navigate without good friends.  Thank you to everyone who has been a good friend of mine!  🙂
  • Sisters:  I was lucky to have been blessed with two:  Tricia who JUST TURNED 40 (Was that my outside voice?) and Tanya, who would be turning 36 later this year.

Until next time, be positive, be happy, be healthy, and don’t forget to be photographed.

Let’s “hangout!” I wanna hear about your love story!

Schedule a virtual or in-person discovery meetup!

About Ata-Girl

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!

You can always call or text, but if you really want to get to know me, schedule a meetup!

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 journeys and consider myself privileged to document their legacies.

If you enjoyed this blog post and would like to get your hands on 20 FREE interactive wedding planning tools that every couple needs, please take a moment to access them here.

I am a published author (purchase my book here), a podcast host (listen here) (watch here) and 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.
