Daizie Fuentez Quinceanera

Daizie Fuentez Quinceanera

I met Tina years ago and was excited when she asked me to be apart of her beautiful daughters special day! Let me tell you, Tina has her stuff together and is truly an organized soul! Daizie is so lucky to have Tina & John as parents. Just the time I’ve spent with them you can see the love they have for their children and would go above and beyond to make their dreams come true. They even surprised her with New England Patriots tickets!

Our day started at Hilton hotel where the lovely Daizie got all beautified in her suite with 30 of her closets friends by her side. She wore a beautiful white gown from Glitter Houston with nails painted in every florescent color to go with her neon theme. Daizie and her friends were picked up by a huge party bus… no.. more like a huge charter bus that brought her to Our Lady of Sorrows for the ceremony.

After the ceremony we took family portraits and the kids took a few group shots before headed out on a venture of their own until dinner. When Denise and I arrived at the Dome is was we were in awe of all the colorful and beautiful decorations! I mean, this place was immaculate! The Dome filled up with 100’s of their closets friends and family with music played by San Antonio DJ Jammin J Javi. It was definitely a night to remember! Here’s a sneak peek of some of my favorite photos of your special day Daizie! Thank you for choosing Captured Moments by Christine!

Miles Wedding

Miles Wedding

Yay! Can’t believe this day was finally here! Kortni & Marcus were such a pleasure to work with and it seemed like forever before we finally got to celebrate their wedding day.. The got back just a few days ago from the Bahamas so I’m excited to share their wedding portraits! Kortni & Marcus met on a blind date and have been in-seperatable ever since! Marcus loves to play guitar and according to Kortni attempts to sing but no matter what, he’s perfect to her. Marcus is more outgoing where Kortni is more mellow and anything that is relaxing to her such as riding horses, going to spas and beaches where the water is blue is more up her ally. Together, they balance each other out and make the perfect couple.

When I arrived to start my day with them, the weather was almost perfect minus the 25 mile per hour winds.. Not good for hair but, we got through it. Here’s a sneak peek of our day with Kortni & Marcus!

Cailyn’s Senior Session

Cailyn’s Senior Session

When mom scheduled Cailyn’s senior session she described her as simple, easy going and very causal. She mentioned taking photos wasn’t something she did often so of course I planned on giving her the best direction during her session and I was amazed! I’m like.. there’s no way this beauty isn’t in front of the camera often! She was a natural and it was so hard for me to pick just a few favorite pics… I wanted to post all 300 of them!

We started at one of the most beautiful historic and one of my favorite spots downtown.. The Victoria Courthouse… It is so neutral with simple landscaping but is always so well kept.. I gave her a few tips and tricks for our session and she was a rock star! At first like most seniors she was very quiet, but as the session progressed and we got to know each other her true spunky and fun self started to come out! I just love that.. That’s when we capture the true selves of our seniors..

Cailyn is a senior at El Campo High School, loves to swim and will be attending Texas State when she graduates.. We wish her nothing but the best of luck!

Here’s a sneak peek of this beauties session..

Taylor & Cameron

Taylor & Cameron

Taylor & Cameron are a ray of sunshine! When Taylor scheduled her session she mentioned that her and Cameron had been together for 6 years and had never taken professional photos before.. Whattttt! Meeting them for the first time and taking direction so well I would have never thought! They are so adorable together!

These two truly share something special in their relationship! Just the way they would look at each other you could see the love.. It’s definitely that deep kind of love that makes your heart skip a beat.. I kept hinting to Cameron that he should seal the deal soon.. LOL I’m sure he gets that enough but I thought I’d put my two cents in.

We strolled through downtown and the spots we selected for these two couldn’t be more perfect.. The weather was just right and the clouds were covering the sun just enough to give it that perfect lighting. Here’s a sneak peek of these two lovebirds!

Dulce & Robert

Dulce & Robert

When I met Dulce years ago, I absolutely adored her! I had the opportunity to photograph her baby boy and now I get to be apart of their forever journey! Planning their engagement session with her, we decided to travel to Austin and shoot at one of the places I wanted to check off my bucket list.. Mount Bonnell. The views were simply breathtaking at sunset and the weather couldn’t be more perfect!

When Dulce & Robert arrived I was already taken back by how he looked at her and had her by her hand making sure her every step was safe walking up the hill. I have the best couples! The one thing I always tell my couples prior to our session is “be yourselves and love each other like no-one is watching”. They were like pros! Every step of the way Robert wrapped his arms around Dulce, wispped her hair behind her ears and made her smile from ear to ear telling her things only she could hear. It was completely romantic and easy to capture them and how much they love each other.

Here’s a sneak peek of my session with Dulce & Robert at Mount Bonnell!

 

 

Jaylynn’s Senior Session

Jaylynn’s Senior Session

What a perfect day for a senior session! Jaylynn looked absolutely stunning in her blush off the shoulder top, ripped jeans, fresh hair style and flawless make-up. We decided to stroll our beautiful downtown area and found the perfect spots that reflected her feel and fashion. I just love her personality and her smile is gorgeous!

I’ve known her family for a long long time (I won’t say how long because then I’ll suddenly feel old LOL) so it’s always a plus when I get to hang out with them!

Although it it undecided where she will go after she graduates East High School I will mention that Jaylynn has an extreme passion for criminal law. I can’t wait to see what her future holds! Here’s a sneak peek of my session with Jaylynn!

Sonia Vidal’s Quinceanera

Sonia Vidal’s Quinceanera

Talk about a great time and great company! I met Sonia & Audelia a year ago to talk and prepare for a huge day in Sonia’s life… Her 15th birthday! Walking into the Inez Community Center my jaw dropped.. It was so gorgeous and well put together to create a Great Gatsby feel! After stopping by the venue to capture all the details we arrived at their home and hung out with the family while they got all dolled up. The lighting in this place was exactly what I was hoping for. With all the flapper headbands vintage hairstyles and make up… it was already giving me the Great Gatsby feels! Everyone grabbed all their last minute items and got those last minute touch ups Sonia finally put on her gown.. and wow.. she looked so gorgeous! Her gown was one I’d never seen before.. champaign with a certain details I can’t even describe.. but you’ll see for yourself in the photos! She looked like a princess!

We arrived at St. Agnes Catholic Church for the ceremony and mass then headed out to the Inez Community Center to begin the festives! Did I mention they had this band that had me swaying my hips the whole night! Amos de la Noche! I had a blast! After all the birthdays, cake cutting and father daughter dance the lights went down and they put on a show. I caught a glimpse of two dancers on the floor that really got my attention. Her parents! OMG the chemistry and movements were on point and in sync! I couldn’t help but want to watch the whole dance through! It was perfection!

In the end all of Sonia’s closets friends and family were there to support such an important day in her life and everyone came together to give her a night she would never forget! Happy birthday Sonia and great job to all involved!
