“Tony and I met in Waco, Texas, in the spring of 2008. I was graduating from Baylor University and Tony was attending University of Mary-Hardin Baylor at the time. After a week of getting to know each other, I left Texas to head to Oklahoma for law school. While in law school, we remained close friends, but it would be April 2010 before we started dating. For a year, we had a long-distance relationship, which fostered a deep foundation for our love. After graduating from law school I moved back to Texas to be closer to Tony. Three years later on April 20, 2013, we were married in Oklahoma City surrounded by our closest friends and family.

Our hand written vows expressed what we loved most about each other and we were excited to begin their lives together as ONE. We spent months collecting antiques and wedding decor for our wedding. My eye for design and Tony’s love for collecting led to the opening of our vintage rentals business. 2016 proved to be an eventful year for us. With full-time jobs at a large healthcare system in Texas, running a vintage rentals company, and travelling, we were ready for a change. We decided to sell our rental company to free up some time for us. We spent most of 2016 travelling for work and pleasure to Las Vegas, Boston, San Diego, Cabo, and lastly, New York, to name a few. While traveling was an exciting adventure, our biggest surprise came in the fall of 2016 when we learned we were PREGNANT with our first baby, a boy. Tony is the fourth generation, so it is only fitting that our baby will carry on the tradition and be named Antonio Perez Castillo V. Both families were thrilled to hear the news and a home office soon turned into a farmhouse nursery. Baby Tony V arrived in April.

Our inspiration for this session might have started when we used Dani Cowan Photography for our three year anniversary session. We fell in love with her and her work at that time so it was a no-brainer that we would use her for our maternity photos as well. Unlike the many photo shoots we had done in the past with our vintage rentals company, we decided this time the photos should tell the story of our love for each other and our excitement for the arrival of our baby…no props were needed. Neutral tones, soft lighting, and nature as their backdrop would set the tone for creating this picture. It couldn’t have been more perfect.” Jordan, Expectant Mother
