Willow House Wedding | Terlingua, TX

The Jorgensen’s Willow House Wedding

I was beyond hyped when Alexandra reached out about my services – a Willow House wedding had been on my bucket list for so so long! I was even more elated when I got to know Alexandra and her story and how her and Erik met. They both work in the service industry but the fact that their friends all work with them as well made for such a fun wedding!

Willow House | Terlingua, TX

“Willow House is a twelve casita desert retreat on over 250 acres of private land. With unobstructed views of the Chisos Mountain Range, it is the perfect location to relax and unwind in Far West Texas. Its close proximity to Big Bend National Park allows guests easy access to the Rio Grande River, Chisos Basin hikes, and everything else the area has to offer. If you are not much of a chef, there are several restaurants within a 3 mile radius that are open for dinner 7 days a week. If you enjoy cooking, the communal Main House has a fully equipped gourmet kitchen. Whatever your style while traveling, we built the space to be versatile…” –


What was really amazing is Alexandra and Erik rented the entire property for their special weekend. They both really wanted the experience to revolve around their closest family and friends.

We started with a “day before” session, it’s something that I offer for my West Texas clients because many of them are traveling in for their wedding. It’s not always convenient to come out prior to the wedding for engagement photos (although, I will travel to you!), this is a nice alternative for some extra photos in your gallery to share!

I know that Alexandra and Erik had a few bumps along the way initially getting their wedding guest to Terlingua. The charter bus(es?) broke down I believe three times on their way from Central Texas to Far West Texas. Causing their guests to arrive in the morning hours!

But like Alexandra and Erik, these two laid back souls made it happen and really had the BEST guests I have ever been around! They made this such an amazing wedding to photograph and the FOOD was amazing!! Not to mention, the detail was so well thought out and intentional – I LOVED IT!
