Hey there





Jordan and Josh

Today, I am going back to Jordan & Josh’s intimate wedding from this past year in Poteet, TX at the scenic Strawberry Pines. These two are such a sweet couple and their day was celebrated in the most beautiful sunset while surrounded by 30 of their closest family and friends.

Their day was so special and beautiful and I cannot believe this was pulled off in the less than 2 weeks of planning. Y’all, 2 weeks!

In 2 weeks time, the talented team at Strawberry Pines came together and waived their magical wedding planning wands and gave Jordan & Josh the intimate wedding of their dreams.

Blush florals, boots, a tearful ceremony, golden hour, and enchiladas for dinner??

Girlfriend, count me in.. every single time!

The sweetest bridal house, known as the “rock house” at Strawberry Pines. I absolutely adore this little house and it always makes for the best place to get ready.

Isn’t Jordan just stunning?!

The lighting inside the little sweet honeymoon suite in the bridal rock house will always steal my heart. Also, I am convinced this sweet girl is a model, isn’t she just beautiful?

Josh, the easiest going groom. He was so excited and ready to see Jordan down the aisle. He didn’t have to say it, his face totally gave him away.

Whitney of Whitney’s Weddings & Decor took an intimate wedding and turned into something romantic. It was November (so pre-covid) and in order to make this space warm and cozy, she not only brought in a lounge set but also a fireplace. You guys, how thoughtful is she? It made a huge difference in this space.

And not to mention the sweet little added touches such as a tray, candles, books, and lanterns for a close to home touch. I’m OBSESSED.

Who says, intimate weddings cannot be beautiful? A farmhaus style seating arrangement was put together as well. Also to note, chairs were provided to the guests and were brought in from the ceremony site to the reception area after the ceremony.

Sweet, simple, and romantic.

Okay, I’m not crying you’re crying.

These tears are always my favorite.

They’re married!!

What I loved most about this intimate wedding? The family. Everyone came together to celebrate these two, many drove several hours to show their support for this two.

Okay, grab a tissue or be prepared for saying “Awwwww!” every few seconds. You’re welcome.

These two you know will be together always. No doubt.

Also outside of a gorgeous day, couple, and family … I’m here for the food. Enchiladas, Tamales, Homemade tortillas and Rice & Beans…. Lordy, was I dancing while I was eating this meal.

Toast time!

I’m telling you guys…we were all were crying over this couple. Precious!

And cue more tears.

To tie into their intimate wedding, J+J had an hour after dinner of dancing and of course …. cake time!

This wedding was absolutely perfect, planned in 2 weeks, closest family and friends came together, to have a relaxed evening of fun. To learn more about the all inclusive intimate wedding experience from Strawberry Pines inquire more through their website here: https://www.strawberrypines.com/

"We have the most beautiful moments of our lives    "


- Jessica & Austin 

"Beyond Incredible! We really hate getting our picture taken but Jessica made it feel so natural and not scary at all! We knew for our wedding it had to be done and done right because you only get 1 chance! How did she make us look so good and not awkward? She's truly great at what she does and I will never pick anyone else after the experience we had."

Jess is the best, from the moment we met her we knew we made the right decision. We had to make major changes to our wedding due to covid, Jess addressed all our concerns, and answered all our questions along the way making all the necessary changes effortlessly. Jess captured our engagement, bridal and wedding day photos each every photo is absolutely amazing. We have the most beautiful moments of our lives captured so beautifully because of Jess.

"Jessica was right there with us getting ready and capturing some very sweet and intimate photos that I know we will forever treasure. She knows exactly what to say and when to say it to get that best smile out of a very nervous bride! We had a perfect ceremony and I've seen a sneak peek of my wedding photos and am just speechless! Jessica was with us for our entire FIVE hour reception and was the perfect combination of photographer and dance partner! Jessica very quickly became a guest favorite and a family member for life! I would have her as my photographer and friend 100 times over! I will never be able to thank Jessica enough for making my day even more special."

"Jessica is so much more than a photographer! She is a planner, friend, someone who listens, and such a beneficial asset to any wedding! I cannot recommend her to enough people. She exceeds any bride's high expectations - all with a smile on her face. It is impossible to feel uncomfortable around her, she is goofy and will constantly keep you laughing. She does anything for her Bride and Groom and will not stop until you are satisfied."

- Kayla & Derek

"Jessica is so much more than a photographer! "

I love Jessica and her work!! She took mine and my husband’s engagement pictures, wedding pictures and bridals and did an outstanding job. My husband is not very happy when it comes to taking pictures (especially with PDA ) but by the time the first session was done she turned him into a pro. The night after our wedding he was telling me he was ready to see how all the pictures turned out! She definitely knows how to help you feel comfortable in your own skin while in front of the camera. Highly highly highly recommend her for your wedding! I cannot say enough good things about her work!

- Melissa & George

My husband isn't happy when it comes to taking pictures, by the time the first session was done she turned him into a pro.

"Would recommend to any and everybody! She did an amazing amazing job with our wedding and engagement photos. I couldn’t feel more grateful and thankful that we found Jess! She is amazing and funny and finds all the great moments that we take for granted. Thank you so so much for taking care of us and our crazy family!"

- Kaitlyn & Chris 

I couldn’t feel more grateful and thankful that we found Jess! 

"Jessicas passion for photography radiated from her soul the moment I met her. When looking for a photographer, We decided that we would call a few to get a feel for the type of people they were and if they (the photographer) would fit into what we were looking for in our wedding vendors. We saw your work, we LOVED your work, but we didn’t know you. From our first conversation up until now you made us feel like you were meant to be apart of our big day! On my wedding day you made me feel like the prettiest bride to ever walk this planet! Your photos blew my husband away! You captured the uniqueness and beauty of us, our surroundings and our guest! This review, nor my “thank you”, will ever be enough to show you how grateful we are for your talent!"

- Eliza & Bradley 

 You made us feel like you were meant to be apart of our big day!

I can't say enough great things about UTS. Jessica is the BEST photographer, not just because she makes you look great, but she makes you feel great! She fills the shoot with funny jokes, music, and laughs to make sure you feel comfortable because not everyone is a super model. Each and every time I get our photos back I am blown away by great they look! She went way above and beyond anything I ever expected from a vendor. She helped us out on the wedding day in so many different ways and worked side by side with our other vendors to make our day successful and perfect. The sneak peak was incredible! She also brought a partner with her who was equally as fun as Jessica. I loved how they both worked and made the pictures fun. HIGHLY RECOMMEND. My husband & I will be using UTS exclusively for all of our photography needs. 

- Bailey & Doug

She went way above and beyond anything I ever expected from a vendor!

"Jessica is so passionate about photography, not only does she take amazing pictures BUT she also makes you feel so beautiful and comfortable while you’re with her! She’s very professional but FUN!! I used her for my engagement photos and my wedding, beyond happy with her!
