    sarah_jeff_engaged-79My love for photography bloomed as a young adult. Growing up with my mom being an artist, I was submerged into the art world young. On the weekends we'd visit museums. During the week I'd study her as she'd create on different mediums. Her paintings and drawings flowed throughout our home. She encouraged me to see art everywhere I went.

    My soul has and always will long to create.

    At the age of 22 I decided to pick up my camera, invest in a lens and start documenting couple's love..

    So many people chanted me on as I stumbled through making mistakes and taking risks.

    Photography isn't just about taking a good photo with nice light. For me, it's about telling the story of someone's love.

    How can I get you to feel what they feel? How can you experience what they are experiencing?


    Because of LOVE I have been able to step on ground I never would have imagined.

    Sarah and Jeff's session in Malibu, California at El Matador Beach was one of my absolute favorite adventures! We hit the sand at sunset. We danced in the water, climbed on rocks, practiced vows and were surrounded by one of the most beautiful places on earth.

    Playful. Free-Spirited.

    These guys had no problem just enjoying the beach and one another for their engagement session.

    Submerging into people's lives and stories leaves me full.

    It's getting to create together that brings me to a satisfying place as an artist.

    Are you even kidding me? I can't wait to create in more epic places with incredible souls.

    Isn't it crazy that something so lovely and perfect leaves you craving more?

  • Texas Wedding Photographer | Anthony Godines Photography




    Hey everyone! My name is Anthony Godines. First and foremost I am a husband, father, Texas wedding and portrait photographer based in San Angelo Texas. I'm 25 years old and somehow I'm still able to work a full time job and shoot weddings on the weekend. Not as crazy as it sounds!

    I've recently started branching out into the state of Texas and destination weddings which has allowed me to run two wedding studios or brands you could say, one for my current city and the other for Texas and destination weddings. I shoot weddings and couples differently now than when I started about a year and a half ago. In the beginning it was all posing and direction, do this do that, no real connection between my couples. Now I photograph couples connecting together, genuinely enjoying each other with a hint of posing guidance. I place couples into faltering poses and give them activities to do, things to say and games to play. This leads to true reactions, true emotions and most importantly allows my couples to reconnect, escape the hustle and bustle of life, simply enjoy each other again and have true memories associated with their images.

    When it comes to light, I love shooting natural but I also know a thing or two when it comes to  flash and strobes. I often find myself stuck between the two. "To shoot with flash or to not?" This is a question I constantly ask myself on shoots and the wedding day. But, in an effort to work quickly and stay engaged with my subjects I usually stay with natural light.

    What do y'all prefer, natural light or artificial?

    Here's some of my favorite images from a recent wedding along with their engagement images as well.

    Hope y'all enjoy!
