I love when a San Antonio engagement session can tell a visual story about a couple’s courtship—about how they met, how they became friends, how they bonded, and finally, how they fell in love. As was the case with Vanessa and Andres, they told me a story how they met at a country dance club and basically danced their way to planning a life together.
It was really important to me to integrate elements from that history into their San Antonio engagement session. So, we searched for a place where we could have the visualization of a “dance floor.” We found that place at Roszell Gardens. The wooden patio area right off of the La Casita was the perfect place. The green backdrop against the setting sun filtered the light perfectly.
It is really important to me to always find ways to make my clients’ engagement sessions unique and discover elements to tell their individual love stories. No couple is the same and their engagement sessions shouldn’t be either. I want the images I create to speak to them—to always fondly touch a place in their hearts and to really, really mark their legacy. I don’t want any of my couples to just carry out an engagement session because “it’s on the list,” everyone else is doing it, or someone’s mother said they had to.
The engagement session should be as personal and unique as every other element and piece of the wedding.

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.
