FAQs: My 3 Favorite Texas Wedding Venues of 2017


There's just something about a well planned, well thought out venue! The kind of place that just screams "TAKE MY PICTURE!!" That's how I feel about the venues I've listed below. These are my absolute 3 top favorite Texas wedding venues of 2017! The lighting at these venues is downright stunning and would be a dream for any photographer to capture. The combination of a gorgeous venue with great lighting makes for FABULOUS images for your wedding day album too! And all of these venues have wonderful owners/managers to boot!!

Here's to adding more venues to this list as I travel more for weddings in the future!

Beneath the Oaks is managed by a dear friend of mine, fellow Aggie and soon-to-be new mama, Meagan Piwonka! This girl and her family have turned a rugged old grass farm into a fantastic venue that is now booked every weekend throughout the year! I'm so proud of them!! The stunning 100-year old oak trees are the signature mark for the venue (hence the name). To attending private concerts to beautiful weddings and shooting multiple sessions out there myself, this venue is definitely on the top of my list! I've shot bridals, families and styled sessions out here, now it's time for an AFC wedding there!! Who's up? ;)

Paniolo Ranch ~ Boerne, Texas

Next up is Paniolo Ranch out in the hill country of Boerne, Texas just north of San Antonio. I mean, just look at that view behind Jenna & Bob!! Absolutely gorgeous! I've shot at this location a handful of times during different seasons, and it's always beautiful! They even have this gorgeous arched walkway covered in vines and flowers, and it's just stunning in the spring (second image above)!!

The bridal suite at Paniolo is spacious enough for a large bridesmaid group and has LOTS of windows that make it great for stunning getting-ready shots!

Caney House Wedding & Events ~ Ashwood, Texas
Houston Wedding Photographer, Texas Bride, Texas Weddings, Wedding dress, white roses bouquet

The Caney House is an old historic home that is managed by Lisa Blaha, sweet sweet lady I might add. The house sits on the bank of Caney Creek in Ashwood, Tx (Van Vleck) and is absolutely  beautiful! I've shot family sessions here, engagement sessions, bridals and a couple of weddings with another photog friend of mine. It has tons of pecan trees for backdrops, gorgeous antique rose bushes and so many antique buildings Lisa has restored. Seriously, you have to check this place out!! There's plenty of space for lots of fun dancing and it's only 10 minutes from our hometown, Bay City, Texas.
