San Antonio Engagement Pictures – The Missions, The River Walk, The Alamo, Ranches, Blue Bonnets, and BBQs Galore
engagement photos and pictures by Josh Wong Photography
When Grace and Kevin invited me to the wild wild west to shoot their engagement photos, I couldn’t wait because it would be my first time in San Antonio, Texas. Anytime I have the opportunity to photograph new places, I’m all over it as it just inspires me to create, create, and create.
My stay in San Antonio was definitely a memorable one. Grace and Kevin, who are getting married later this year in California, are so energetic and fun that taking pictures with them became secondary. Not only were they great subjects, the people of San Antonio were extremely friendly. Their hospitality, generosity, and kindness are unforgettable. And as expected in Texas, the food portions size were extremely generous. When I ordered a tamale, who knew I would be getting TWELVE of them. But boy, they were delicious. We spent much of the day at a private ranch called the Dehnisch Ranch, which is a sprawling 3,000 acres. Much of the land around the ranch are only accessible by 4×4 vehicles and ATVs. I wish we could have spent more time there exploring the place as we only scratched the surface of the area. I guess I’ll have to come back!
The second day, Grace and Kevin played the role of a tour guide as we visited 5 different Missions including the “Alamo”. We also visited the famous River Walk which runs through downtown San Antonio. Much of our country’s history lies within these walls and the beauty of the architecture remains, so being able to see it in person and photographing it was amazing. After visiting the sites, Grace and Kevin mentioned that it was a bluebonnet season. So off we went to find fields of them and got some absolutely gorgeous shots. Oh… and we couldn’t leave without trying out the Texas BBQ so we topped off our day at Rudy’s. Thanks again for the good times. I will see you all again back in the Bay Area soon for the wedding. I’m off to NYC. Enjoy!
Amazing end to and an amazing trip. We were all blown away.
We can’t forget! Thanks to Gabriel and Sarah for taking us to the ranch, helping us haul equipment, setup, break down, drive and everything in between. You two were as big apart of this experience as any.
