I'm Jessica, the owner of Under the Sun Photography, most days you can catch me chasing my lil son on our family's homestead and fixing up a meal that'll stick to more than your bones., along with baby goats by my side. I love everything about my rural South Texas, our heritage and way of life makes it one of the best places to live, raise a family, and practice photography. Sit back, grab a cup of coffee and feel free to scroll through my blog. Mi casa es su casa.

Hill Country Bridal Portraits at Chandelier of Gruene | New Braunfels, TX | Kendra


I am so excited that I can finally post these beautiful photographs of Kendra from her bridal portrait session at The Chandelier of Gruene. My favorite photographs are those that include a framed portrait of Kendra’s late Father, John. John was one of the sweetest men I ever knew and always had a smile on his face! I know right now he’s grinning from ear to ear.

This past weekend Kendra & Nick said, “I do” in the comfort of their ranch with only immediate family present. I was able to watch from the comfort of my home on Zoom, along with other close family & friends due to our current pandemic.

Although I wasn’t able to be there, I was able to witness two people profess their love for one another and it was a beautiful sight.

Cheers to the Mr. & Mrs. Kolenda! I wish you nothing but endless years of happiness!

I can’t wait to celebrate your wedding reception in your honor this Fall!
