• 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.

Newborn: Isabel

This is one of the reason I love doing weddings, because next comes the babies. We love to see families grow. Irene and I would love to welcome into the world the newest member into the Mayfield family, Isabel. What better place to photograph Isabel than at the place Victoria and Travis had their wedding reception. We even tried to recreate some of their wedding poses and incorporated little Isabel this time around. It really does my heart good to see such love and happiness. Irene and I wish many blessing to you and your family.

PS: We can’t wait till the next little one (wink, wink).

Also, if you haven’t seen their wedding at Alamo Heights United Methodist Church check it out here, Victoria’s Bridal session here, and you can also see their engagement on our website.

Diane Brejack Bennett - Seriously! This is just the cutest photo shoot!

Spaghetti Warehouse Adventure

I think I am the only one who had not been to Spaghetti Warehouse. I have lived here most of my life and have not partaken in the “dining car” experience. When I mentioned this to Irene, in some random conversation, she said, “Well that’s where we are going to have lunch then.” So off we went on another one of our random little adventures.

So was Spaghetti Warehouse all I expected it to be? The food was good. The wine was nice. The company I was with was superb. What else could I ask for? So raise your glass, “Cheers!” I can now add a new notch to my dining experiences.

Engagement: Brandon + Kayleigh

Engagement Sessions are always a great way to showcase our clients and their unique personalities. Engagements also help us understand who our clients are and how they love one another. Meet Brandon and Kayleigh! These two were introduced to one another by mutual friends who thought they they were the boy and girl version of one another. Kayleigh, being the old fashioned gal she is, hesitated when they opted to give her Brandon’s phone number. She insisted he call her instead. We are so glad that he did, because they have been dating ever since!

The engagement came as a surprise to Kayleigh or as she put it “I was shocked! He is a big time planner and we plan everything months in advance so I thought there was no way he could possible let this get passed me.” Little did she know her sneaky fiancé to be had been planning it out all along.

Every 4th of July the family has a big party in celebration of the holiday. Brandon and Kayleigh don’t usually get to go to the party, because Brandon’s birthday usually hits around the same time of year as 4th of July weekend and they celebrate at the coast. He mentioned to Kayleigh that it had been a while since they had made it to the family 4th of July celebration and thought it would be a nice change of pace to go. Kayleigh was excited and didn’t think anything of it. Brandon invited his parents out and as tradition would have it, they played Bananagrams as a family as they always have. Brandon finished the game off by yelling “Bananas!” Kayleigh, (being the good sport she is) started questioning his words. She mentioned that there was a bit of back and forth about the validity of Brandon’s win and he stated something like “I’m just so good at this game I should glue them together!” Before Kayleigh could respond she turned to Brandon who was kneeling behind her with the words “Will you marry me?” spelled out in his hands.

It was a happy moment filled with love, celebration, and family. With a little push from their friends, these two have found their soulmate. We are happy to announce Brandon and Kayleigh’s Engagement. Congratulations you two! We cannot wait for the journey ahead!

Ye Kendall Inn: Wedding Challenge

Ye Kendall Inn invited us out to their venue in Boerne, Texas to document their Wedding Challenge. This was something completely new to David and I and when I received the details to what would be required of the brides in attendance I jumped on board immediately! Let me just start by saying that Ye Kendall Inn is a gorgeous venue with so much to offer from multiple ceremony sites, hotel accommodations, linens, to just about anything you could ask for! They have a wonderful staff who organized such a fun event. This was the first wedding challenge of many and David and I were grinning ear to ear the entire time at all the fun the brides in attendance were having. The Ye Kendall Inn Wedding Challenge consisted of several stations with different challenges such as a ceremony site obstacle course, champagne flute toss, to an eating challenge and a bouquet bulls eye just to name a few. Some brides came out with their husbands to be, while others called in for reinforcements and brought their trusty maids of honor. The Ye Kendall Inn Wedding Challenge is one of those events that is a “must attend” for brides-to-be.

All this fun came with great reward. The Ye Kendall Inn Wedding Challenge winners walked away with lots of great prizes. First place winner received an amazing wedding package that included a free wedding Venue, free day of coordination services, free photo booth, free getaway car, free engagement session with Expose The Heart, and more. All worth over $10,000.00!

It was a great afternoon filled with fun, laughter, and lots of great vendors who came out to support the cause. Pictured below are some of the activities and the winners to the Ye Kendall Inn Wedding Challenge. We look forward to working with the grand prize winners as they embark on the journey ahead as well as the staff at Ye Kendall Inn, thanks for having us out.

RE-VIVE Vintage Rentals: A peek into the past

I had the pleasure of meeting Sherrie Klein and Robin Morgan of RE-VIVE Vintage Rentals a company based out of Boerne, Texas. Robin and Sherrie specialize in supplying rentals of vintage and modern furniture, decor, and accessories available for your event needs. If you are getting married and are looking for that little something to give your wedding some style come visit these ladies. RE-VIVE Vintage Rentals has an amazing collection of anything you can think of from old books, milk glass, and clocks to victorian settees, cathedral doors, and columns galore!

The ladies of RE-VIVE Vintage Rentals were kind enough to open their warehouse gallery to me so that we could have a peek. Below are just a few of the many gems that were revealed! Okay, maybe I might be a bit dramatic about this, but honestly these gals have it all. I felt like a kid in a candy store!

One of the things we love about RE-VIVE Vintage Rentals is that they are just as passionate about your story as you are. The pieces they bring into their shop all come with a little story of their own and that is what makes them so unique. The ladies at RE-VIVE take little pieces of history and pull them out of the past and bring them back to life to add to your own history in the making. Whether it be for that “something old” for your wedding day, or maybe to use for the birthday of that special someone in your life. Whatever your event may be these pieces will help set the stage for your memories and history in the making.

To visit Sherrie and Robin visit RE-VIVE Vintage Rentals.

Jason Brown Photography - Very Nice Work, I love the rustic feel to them. The jars flag and twine is nice, and all of your photo’s have incredible bokeh congrats very nice. I am also a San Antonio Wedding Photographer and want to contact others here in town to do a little networking. I like your work and would be comfortable passing overflow work to you. I also was wondering if you have any photographers you like to give your overflow work to and would be more than happy to compensate when they book. Exact details can be beneficial to both. Feel free to look through my website http://asanantonioweddingphotographer.com My most current work is on my blog. I excel at customer relations and am never late and very professional!
