Milestone New Braunfels

Even though I limit the number of weddings I personally commission each year, I still try to get out and shoot weddings as often as possible—especially when they’re at the Milestone New Braunfels. I do this by second shooting with other photographers as often as they’ll have me. This allows me to lend my services and help out my fellow colleagues, and practice my craft and stay relevant with my knowledge by continually improving my skill. I can increase my experience without actually increasing my workload. It’s nice really. I show up to a wedding, give it 120% for the day, and at the end of the day hand over the memory cards to the lead photographer. I’m done. There are no more deadlines to meet. I can review the images at my leisure. And, I can decide when and even IF I want to post-process them. I absolutely adore second shooting!

As was the case with Ariel and Andrew’s wedding with fellow wedding photographer Lisa Blashke of Lisa on Location. This wedding happened last year in July at The Milestone Event Venue in New Braunfels. 

The Milestone at New Braunfels Wedding

Some of my favorite moments of the day were:

The first look. As I’ve stated numerous times, I’m a huge fan of when couples choose a first look. This just helps the rest of the day flow so much smoother and with much less stress. It’s a bonus for all involved.

The couple’s creative session that followed was adorable!

When the bride puts the right spin on the personal wedding vows, she always brings the groom to tears. If I remember correctly, and that’s a BIG IF, Ariel included anecdotes about Andrew not being able to get his dirty clothes in the hamper, though strangely enough, he could get them near the hamper.

Her father was the officiant!

And her grandfather walked her down the aisle.

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 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.

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.
