• SAN ANTONIO WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHERS

    We are San Antonio wedding photographers David and Irene Castillo of Expose The Heart Photography. This blog is kind of the viewfinder of our lives as San Antonio photographers. Fifteen years ago we started doing photography as more of a hobby. . As our love for one another grew from friendship to more; so did our love and passion for photography. So we decided start a San Antonio wedding photography studio. We look at life as an adventure and are happy to share the journey with you good or bad! On this blog you will see our lives as San Antonio photographers as well as peek into our day to day lives.

    We photograph more than San Antonio weddings and more than San Antonio wedding photographers. We also have a thriving San Antonio portrait photography business as well that includes newborn photography, baby photography, family photography, high school senior photography, real estate photography, and commercial photography. We can even take your picture using film formats as well since we have our own darkroom.

A Random Photowalk in San Antonio

Irene and I had a little photo walk date a few weeks ago, as we sometimes do. Our photo dates hold a special place in our hearts because when we first met many of our dates were “Photo Dates”. We would first choose a location. Somewhere that would be a day trip so that I could have her back home at a decent hour. Armed with our cameras we would set off on a little photo adventure. This is still a tradition we keep going to this day, although I can now keep her out as late at I want 😉 . Please enjoy some of the pictures from one of our latest photo excursions.

Granberry Hills Wedding: Bianca and Rudy – San Antonio Wedding

Bianca and Rudy had their wedding at Our Lady of Grace and reception at Granberry Hills wedding venue. The day started out with an exchange of gifts between Bianca and Rudy. Rudy gave Bianca a beautiful necklace and Bianca gave Rudy a humidor filled with his favorite cigars.

As Bianca walked down the aisle Rudy began to grin from ear to ear as if he was looking into his future walking toward him. Bianca was so happy that it was hard for her to hold back her tears of joy. The wonderful lighting in Our Lady of Grace church made for such a gorgeous ceremony. I don’t think there was a dry eye in the place.

There was a little gap of time between the ceremony and the reception at Granberry Hills wedding venue, so we decided to grab a few shots around the grounds of Our Lady of Grace. Once at Granberry Hills wedding venue Bianca and Rudy relaxed in the bridal room to cool off from the hot Texas sun.

Once they made their entrance to Granberry Hills wedding venue Hill Side the party was on. The uplighting was perfect and the music was jumping. Everyone had such a great time that night that no one wanted it to end. Alas, all good things must come to and an end. As they made their exit, leaving Granberry Hills wedding venue, through the sparklers, Rudy stopped to give his bride a kiss. A perfect end to a wonderful wedding.

Cake Smash: Amelia

We love a good cake smash! Ok, I just had to get that out there first. We love the outfits, the laughs, the messiness, and of course seeing the smile on our clients faces when they get the pictures of their little one.

Alexi and Chase are past clients of ours. We shot their engagement, wedding, maternity, newborn, and now cake smash shoot. As Amelia’s first birthday grew closer, Alexi reached out to us about doing a cake smash shoot for Amelia. Look at those eyes people, how could you refuse that little face. So of course we were in! Alexi had been planning for this for a while. She put a lot of detail into this cake smash and you can tell. I just love the colorful streamers, and the beautiful cake. Even the blanket Alexi wanted Amelia to sit on was the same one used in her maternity shoot.

This is really why we do what we do. We have had the honor to document the beginning of this family. From its birth at the alter to the addition of its new little member and the moments in between. It is such a blessing to have such wonderful clients friends that become part of our lives. We recently received the news that this new little family will be moving soon. While they may be moving miles away we will alway keep them in our hearts and prayers.

Please enjoy the pictures and slideshow.

If you would like to see their maternity you can view it here. You can also see more of Alexi and Chase’s shoots on our portfolio site.

San Antonio Wedding Photography: Pearl Stable Wedding of Martha and Joseph

Martha and Joseph’s wedding at the Pearl Stable at the Pearl Brewery in downtown San Antonio was elegant and full of wedding day details. The day started off with a bit of rain, but this didn’t get the couple down. They were so happy, full of love and ready to wed! Joseph smiled from ear to ear as he saw his beautiful bride walking down the aisle. The love between these two was unmistakable.

After the ceremony everyone headed to the Pearl Stable to prepare for the reception. Once at the Pearl Stable we took the newly married couple outside in the drizzle for a few shots in the rain. As their guest started arriving to the Pearl Brewery, Martha and Joseph went inside the Pearl Stable to prepare for their grand entrance.

The reception was full of laughter and dancing. Everyone was having a great time, and how could they not. From the popcorn bar to the photo booth and all of the details the two put into the Pearl Stable, it was definitely a wedding to remember. So much so that San Antonio Weddings Magazine will be featuring their wedding in an upcoming issue. Congratulations Martha and Joseph!

As the night drew to a close, we took Martha and Joseph outside the Pearl Stable to get a few of those evening shots that Expose The Heart is famous for. As the couple stood outside the Pearl Brewery, you could see the newly fallen rain glisten off of the stone walkway at the Pearl Stable. It was quite breathtaking. Check out the image and slideshow video below to see the day unfold.

Luckenbach Texas: Danny Terry

Luckenbach is a place with so much history. Many famous people have walked the grounds and played the stage. Then there are the other “Luckenbach Famous” folks, people who are pretty much permanent fixtures at Luckenbach. One of them being Danny Terry.

I have been going to Luckenbach since I was in high school at Texas Military Institute and since then this gentleman has always been there. Luckenbach is his home away from home. Many of my fondest memories of my youth include this man. The funny thing is he probably doesn’t even know it. I loved sitting around a campfire with my Martin D-45 and Danny and his guitar and trading songs back and forth, and occasionally  our guitars. Danny would love to play on my Martin. I would even tease him sometimes and leave it in the truck until he would tell me to get off my ass and get it out and play!

Luckenbach was also one of the first places Irene and I would hang out. It’s where our love blossomed and grew into what it is today. It holds a special place in both our hearts.

While out in the hill country taking care of some business Irene decided to stop by Luckenbach and roam around the grounds that we haven’t set foot on in quite some time. Guess who she happened to see? None other than Danny Terry. He recognized her immediately and remembered our times playing music together. She snapped and few pictures while out there to post up. Man I sure do wish I could have been there. I will have to make a trip out there soon. Hope to see you there too Danny.
