Favorite Photos Friday: Picks of the Week

OK, I'm not playing favorites (regardless of the title), I promise. Some of these photographers' work has been on here pretty frequently, I can't help it. They feed us some amazing shots. So, let me explain why they're my favorites for this week.

Alberto Vazquez Photography
210-316-6313
If you check out Alberto's site, you'll see he's pretty big on "different" angles. Whenever you look at it, there's always something appealing and often very interesting about his shots. While the bride is rather small in this photo, for me, she's still surprisingly the main focal point of the photo.


Amy DeYoung
888-804-4737
I can't say enough about how Amy is able to capture really quick and timeless moments. And it's not just click, click, snap and you got a photo. It's very artistic and yet so real. I look at this photo and can actually hear the laughter of the crowd and the yelling of the men jumping for the prized garter. That guy in the back didn't stand a chance. Wonderful Amy!



Dave Crockett Photography
210-418-0038
Doesn't this photo look like a cover of a magazine? The soft light on the couple and the contrast of the background and the bride's white dress is such a dramatic look. Truly romantic.


Four Creative Studio
210-877-1573
I must admit, I have a soft spot for black and white photos. Not only because of the focus it brings to the subjects in the photo, but because of it's timeless look. Catherine did a wonderful job at capturing the couple at this moment. They look completely comfortable and very happy. If you've ever been in photos (and aren't used to having someone follow you around), a photographer who is able to make you relax is the one you need book. Love it.


Powerhouse Studios
210-286-5266
Fun, playful and loads of laughter are what you get when you look Breanna's work. She has a way of transferring the atmosphere and energy of whatever she's photographing straight into the lens to create a great photo. And not just one or two photos, really everything I've seen from her-even when it's not people. And the locations she shoots are always bright and colorful. Looking at her work makes me smile. :)

The San Antonio Symphony plays Allegreto Music


Allegretto's Jose Irizarry was asked to orchestrate during the Fiesta Pops concert. Congrats Jose, what an honor.

The San Antonio Symphony Orchestra has asked José Irizarry, director of Allegretto Music, to orchestrate four musical pieces to be premiered on April 16 & 17, 2010 during their Fiesta Pops concerts at the Majestic Theatre.


“It is really great to finally write for my local orchestra, where I have performed so many times,” said Jose, who has a Master's Degree in violin performance, and often plays with the San Antonio Symphony, “and it has been a great honor to work with Juan Ortiz and his legendary Mariachi Campanas de América.”


The Theme of the Fiesta Pops concert is “Pride of San Antonio” and what better opportunity to feature José as part of that local pride! The concert will feature performances by Mariachi Campanas de América, the Guadalupe Theatre Dance Company and acclaimed trio Los Tres Reyes.


José Irizarry has been performing and producing music in San Antonio for 10 years, as owner of Allegretto Music. He has published a highly successful collection of wedding music for strings, which is sold internationally. And this is not the first time his orchestrations are featured by a symphony orchestra in Texas.


Most recently, acclaimed San Antonio tenor Donald Braswell performed his arrangements, accompanied by the Symphony of the Hills in Kerrville.


Interesting to note, Mr. Irizarry is the musical director of Groove City Band, which last year won the award for Best Band of the Fiesta Cavaliers River Parade. From the river barge to the stage at the Majestic Theater José's music shines through.


For further information, contact Allegretto Music at (210) 497-8831, mail@allegrettomusic.com

Colorful, gorgeous heels for your pictures

Color is amazing...especially when they're in your shoes. My favorite thing, and it's nothing new, is when ladies where playful awesome heels for their engagements or bridals... or for those daring ones.. on their wedding day. Photos of these quirky finds are awesome. I love seeing bright stilettos peek through a classic wedding dress.

Check out these awesome favorites from Zappos.

Wedding Dress Inspiration

Happy Monday! Hope everyone had a fabulous weekend. I wanted to share some pictures from this weekend's red carpet appearances, take a look a the dresses some celebrities debuted. These can make some awesome wedding gowns. Who says you have to wear white, right?






Critics apparently gave Faith Hill an F for showing up in this outfit... but personally, I love it.
