I took this dreamy sunset wedding photograph of this couple at the historic Kuebler Waldrip Haus in New Braunfels, Texas. There are so many things I love about this photo; the gorgeous sunset hues, the out-of-focus grass in the foreground, the romantic pose, and the groom’s western gear.
Although you can’t tell from the photograph, I did have to get down on my stomach amidst the prickly pear cactus, fire ants, and chiggers to capture this particular image. It was terrifically uncomfortable, but I knew as I was clicking away down there in the dust that it was going to be worth it.
When the couple told me they were having a western-themed wedding, and to expect the groom and his groomsmen to look like something out of Westworld, I had no idea how far they would actually go. It was really amazing; the guys completely looked the part, and the groom even fired off blanks from his revolver into the air after the ceremony was finished.
The Kueber Waldrip Haus, built in 1847 by German immigrants, is a beautiful bed and breakfast located just minutes from quaint downtown Gruene, Texas. Nestled near the Comal and Guadalupe Rivers, New Braunfels, myriad live music venues, and parks, it’s the perfect weekend getaway or wedding venue.
