Mission San Jose is dripping in old world elegance; the kind of place that easily lends itself to a romantic affair. And this inspiration crafted by Without Wax, Katy, Mayhar Design and Taylor Lord Photography knows what’s up. With rambling hand-written stationery by The Left Handed Calligrapher and the prettiest pastel color palette, this photo shoot has romance by the bucketful.
From Without Wax, Katy & Mayhar Design…When we decided to jointly collaborate on a photo shoot, we were unanimous in our desire to create something that was authentic and timeless and above all, honored and enhanced the original beauty of the environment. Our hearts fell immediately in love with the breathtaking backdrop of San Antonio’s Mission San Jose. After an initial site visit, we quickly set to planning, basing all color and design direction around the color palette and detailing of the mission itself. We quickly brought on a team of local artisans that we dearly admired and are so thrilled with the gifts and talent that each person brought to the table!
It is always our ultimate goal to create a product that is elegant and honest and that portrays a genuine beauty. We cannot thank our amazing team of collaborators enough and hope that you enjoy what we came up with!
