I have been capturing weddings for 5 years now, and Whitney & Zack's wedding was undoubtedly the most stress-free, fun wedding I've ever experienced! As a wedding photographer, my job is to capture emotions, among other things; therefore, I'm acutely aware of feelings. The most common emotion I see is the justified STRESS that comes with planning a wedding. It can be exhausting, and expensive, and too often leaves the bride, groom, and especially their parents, ready for it all to be over. Whitney and Zack, on the other hand, left all the stress behind with a beautiful, relaxing, destination wedding in Port Aransas, Texas! Their gorgeous wedding venue, "Mansion by the Sea," was the perfect way for everyone to actually ENJOY the entire wedding experience! Their families rented the giant mansion and it's toys for a week where they woke up every day to swim with dolphins, sail on the venue's own private sail boat, jet ski, and most importantly, get a sun-kissed tan. As a photographer, I was super excited to shoot this wedding! Anytime you use God's amazing creation as a backdrop, the photos are going to be breathtaking. Moreover, when the guests are having this much fun, the smiles are going to be natural and truly full of joy! Like someone at the wedding sipping on a Corona with a lime said, "Now this is how it's done!"
