Yay! I just put the finishing touches on our fancy new blog, so head on over to check it out!! We’re no longer J. Nichols Photography, but The Nichols!! My husband CJ has become such an integral part of our business that I wanted to bring him on board with our branding.  Not only is he an amazing photographer, but I couldn’t have done any of this without his support.  I love you CJ!!

First up, Julie and Chris’s wedding, followed by our Acapulco adventure!  Leave me a comment on the new blog and let me know what you think! I looooove comments:)

I won’t be posting here anymore, but this blog will remain up as archives.

Thanks!
Jennifer

We got a good laugh out of this. Looks like they ran out of room on this sign, and just said, “To heck with it, you get the idea!”

Amy and Dane are such a fun couple!  We got to break in our new studio (more to come) and shoot a little inside before venturing out into our new Eastside neighborhood. They’re getting married at the end of this month and we’re super excited about their wedding!!

And since so many folks ask for recommendations on what to wear for their engagement sessions, take a cue from Amy and Dane. I LOVE what they chose to wear. A classic dress always looks great, and their color choices really compliment each other. It was fun guys! See you in a few weeks!

Alexandria and Dean are New Yorkers, but they decided to get married in San Antonio so they could celebrate with Alex’s grandparents.

Alex was a knock-out!

Dean and his groomsmen had this great idea to re-enact the “Evolution of Man.” Hilarious!!

Alex and Dean decided to go with a less-traditional first dance and entertained the crowd with a dance ala Pulp Fiction. They were fabulous!

They passed out cowboy hats to all of the guests during the reception. They were a huge hit!

Alexandria and Dean are our second New York couple of this year, and I gotta say, I’m lovin’ the New Yorkers! These two were so cool and easy-going and had a blast celebrating with their friends and family.  They were married at the Little Church of La Villita, an adorable little historic chapel in San Antonio.  The reception followed at The Westin Hotel, just a short walk from the chapel along the Riverwalk. 

Congratulations Alex and Dean! We had a great time celebrating with you! Hope you enjoyed your honeymoon!

Killer shoes!

This is where the fun begins.

Everything was going great, until the zipper on Lani’s dress broke! After about 30 minutes of the bridesmaids and Lani’s mom trying their best to repair the zipper, they decided to sew Lani into her dress!  Luckily, Lani’s aunt and uncle are skilled tailors. They saved the day!!

The flowergirls were waiting patiently.

While the boys were starting to get a little rowdy:)

Now this is a cool bride. Look at the smile on Lani’s face as her Aunt and Uncle spend close to an hour sewing her into her dress as everyone waited outside.

Gorgeous!

This is a Jewish tradition where the groom “meets” his bride before the actual ceremony.

All the lovely ladies. These girls were SO much fun!

This beautiful chuppah was given to them by Lani’s mom and Step-Dad Augie, and made by Shirley Waxman, a talented Jewish artist in Maryland, who also made their chuppah 20 years ago.

Lani and Dan are New Yorkers, so we didn’t meet them until we arrived in Acapulco to shoot their wedding.   As soon as we met them, they made us feel so welcome and we had such an amazing time documenting their big day.   Their Jewish wedding was  filled with beautiful traditions and customs.  And you could see how much it meant to Lani and Dan to have their friends and family to share such a special day with them in gorgeous Acapulco.

Congratulations to you Lani and Dan! We’re so glad that we got to share your big day with you in Acapulco!!

CJ and I had some adventures of our own after the wedding, which I’ll be posting very soon!
