UTSA v UAB

Happiest of Thursday’s, everyone! It’s game day in The Modica household & that’s always a treat. After getting my week of schoolwork out of the way, I finally got to get behind the computer and play with some pictures. Here’s hoping your day was just as successful as mine ended up being!

Today’s gallery is UTSA’s home battle against UAB. In the past few years, I’ve gotten to see the fellas play against this team in the convo a bunch of times & every time – it’s a pretty epic adventure. This time around was no exception, either. This season in the convo has been pretty rowdy, which always makes watching the game from the sidelines that much more epic. The band is full of the best heckling and the student section is filled with so so so many people. It’s what college is about, really.

Despite the box score not being what we wanted it to be in the end, the fellas put their all out on the court. I think I type that every single time I talk about these guys, but it’s hard not to – it’s pretty apparent. No matter the score, these guys are always fun to watch – they always put on a show and keep the crowd in it until the very end.

As you go through these, get pumped for the first game of bonus play scheduled to start at 6PM CST! Don’t miss out on the last few match ups of the season, y’all. It’s going to come down to the finish.

There you have it! The fellas are about to hit the court, so make sure you tune in where you can. The guys come back home on Sunday at 2PM – be there!

We’re quickly heading into the warm weather and that comes with blue bonnets and gorgeous flowers! We’re already in the midst of planning our bluebonnet sessions and want to make sure everyone has access to them. So – here we are. All of our bluebonnet sessions are $95, yet packed full of beauty, fun, and lots of excitement. The location we like has so great access to light – & we’re so excited.

We’re also trying to get ahead of senior photos! If you’re a 2020 graduate and want to celebrate your accomplishment for a relatively good price – you’re in the right place! Until 3/17 we’re offering our senior sessions for $135! This is the cheapest these will be until literal days before graduates are set to walk – so don’t miss out!

Lastly, we’re so happy you guys are here. This is the most fun and enjoyment I’ve been able to get out of my adult life and it’s all because of the people that support us in this adventure. It’s amazing to get to do this day in and day out, so thank you for booking sessions, checking out our photos, and simply liking what we do.

Until the next time, friends! Keep on adventuring…

The Next Season of Action Shots with Ryan!

Happiest of Tuesday’s, everyone! It has been a gorgeous breezy day with the sun shining – & I’m so here for it. It has been the best day to get behind my computer and do the thing I love pretty close to the most. Here’s hoping your day has been as great!

Today’s blog post is all about our good pal Ryan. Not only does he take great portraits, but he’s also incredibly athletic and takes some of the best action shots! Josh and I have known this little guy for the passed couple of years & watching him progress as a basketball player is one of the best bits of knowing him. Over the years, he has certainly taken his UTSA Basketball fandom to a different level and put it into actual practice.

Watching this kid play is pretty excellent. I have seen some really fantastic basketball, yet Ryan’s games are always some of my favorites. Sure, the little kids don’t really follow the rules, but there’s so much to say about development in that age group. Ryan is taller than everyone else but also seems to have the most basketball knowledge, too. It’s insane to think how much progression there is between each and every one of those kids & they’re all in the exact same age group!

As you go through these I hope you enjoy the look of pure joy on Ryan’s face. He loves getting to play basketball – it’s so insanely obvious and a great honor to get to watch. Here’s hoping you guys enjoy them just as much as I did!

There you have it! Ryan, you’re always a blast to get to shoot, no matter what we’re doing, portrait or actions, or whatever. If you’re looking for photos just like these, fill out the contact form below!

UTSA Men’s Basketball v. UTEP

Happiest of Thursday’s, everyone! Today is one of the only days I get to really relax and I’m taking advantage of that tenfold. It’s always a good day when I get to put together a basketball gallery, so I hope you’re enjoy your day just as much!

Today’s blog post is all about UTSA Men’s Basketball. They’re currently back in my home town of Norfolk, VA preparing to take on ODU – so it’s only appropriate to get a game day gallery put together. Conference play has been a bit of a whirlwind, but today’s gallery was an amazing win at home with a stadium filled with excited fans! There’s nothing like a win in The Convo, y’all – there’s nothing like it.

UTEP is a travel partner, so the week of this game the fellas headed up to El Paso and played The Miners at home, then turned around and took them on at The Convo later that same week. Every year, this game is a push to the finish. The guys work hard to bring home with W and this year wasn’t any different.

As you take a look through these, take in all of the athletic shots that were put up driving down the lane and all of the three-pointers with the opponents hands in their faces. One of the best bits of being on the sideline is getting to see just how tenaciously each of the guys is working.

There you have it! The fellas play tonight out in Norfolk, but you can follow along. Tip off is at 6PM CST, so don’t miss out! We’re slowly creeping up on the end of the season, so there won’t be too many opportunities left.

As Valentine’s Day looms closer, we’ve decided to offer some sessions on THE BIG DAY. Josh mentioned that couples get dressed up beautifully and kids have parties in school – so why not offer the opportunity to get some photos done while they’re dressed to impress. It’s a pretty good idea, so we’ll be offering mini sessions on 2/14 from 11-5. These are going to be loads of fun, fast (20 minutes), and a great way to kick off a great evening with the people you love. Fill out the comment card below to grab a time!

We’re also in the works of putting together some bluebonnet sessions. If you’re interested in these, or have a good place that you know has these beauties in surplus, let us know! Spring in San Antonio is one of the best times for photos, so we’re excited to start shooting in the gorgeous weather coming up.

Lastly, we want to thank each and every person reading this right now. We get to live our dream and it’s because people support us by reading the blog, scheduling sessions, and checking out our photos. Thank you, thank you, thank you!

Until the next time, friends! Keep on adventuring…

UTSA MBB v Southern Mississippi

Happy Thursday, everyone! This week has been a little hectic, but I finally got some time today to really sit down and get some good photo work done. It feels pretty fantastic to get lost in the work & was completely what I needed. Hope you’re enjoying your day just as much!

Today’s blog post goes hand in hand with UTSA MBB’s game day tonight against North Texas. I like to get up previous conference home games when the fellas are off on the road, so that’s what we’ve got today. The game against Souther Miss was just as fun to edit as it was to shoot. The guys played so fantastically – & it shows in all of the images.

For being the second home conference game of the season, the crowd was pretty intense – & made the game play that much better. There are so many shots where you can see the crowds reaction and it’s just as exciting as the actual play in the shot. Besides getting to experience the atmosphere at each of the games, one of the best bits of the job is getting to see the game from a really excellent perspective.

As you go through these, enjoy the continued intensity that can be seen throughout the gallery of images. It’s dang cool to see the team play well and get to capture all of the good moments. Here’s hoping you enjoy, too!

There you have it! Tune in tonight to see these guys take on North Texas. It’s going to be a great game, so make sure you check back. If you’re interested in action shots like this, shoot us a message – sports season is my favorite season!

We’re currently making the most of San Antonio’s beautiful cool weather and enjoying all types of sessions. As Valentine’s Day creeps closer, we’re stoked to be offering a couple different discounted session types. These would be the perfect gift for your loved ones. What’s better than a moment in time captured through an image? Grab 15% off a full length session, or book an in-studio session for $95! Josh and I spent a bunch of time last night getting the studio set-up just right!

As always, thank you for supporting our small little love child. We’ve put so much time and effort into creating what we’re able to bring to the table for everyone and we’re able to do that because of the people that book sessions, look at our photos, or simply read our posts. Thank you, thank you!

Until the next time, friends! Keep on adventuring…

UTSA v. LA Tech – A Conference Win!

Happiest of Wednesday’s, everyone! It’s a weird sort of week for The Modica’s – Josh is gone with the basketball team and I’m starting my tutoring workshop at the end of the week instead of the beginning like usual. This week the fellas will play Wednesday/Saturday, instead of Thursday/Saturday like their usual schedule. I’m excited to see what a double match-up against UTEP is going to look like.

Today’s post is all about UTSA’s first conference home game against Louisiana Tech. Heading into the game, the guys were two losses into conference and were looking to bring home a win – in all ways they could! We may not be the best road team, but with the school behind the fellas – we’re definitely a killer home team. As the season moves on, there’s a lot more people coming to each of the games and making the crowd presence so exciting. As an athlete, there’s nothing better than having people stand up and cheer for all the good stuff you’re bringing to the game.

This game was anything but boring. The fellas took up a pretty quick lead and kept their foot on the pedal. Both Jhivvan and Keaton put together a killer performance and were nicely rounded out by all of the big guys busting their butts on the court. Though they tried to come back, UTSA kept their foot on LA Tech’s throat and brought home the win.

As you go through these, enjoy all of the different ways points were scored and some of the good offensive movement that lead to great teamwork as well as a big W. It’s a blast standing on the sideline getting these photos & it’s so cool to see how the albums are going to turn out. I hope you enjoy them as much as I did taking and editing them!

There you have it! Check out the fella as the play tonight at 8PM CST! Then head over to the Convocation Center on Saturday to see them take on UTEP for the 2nd time of the season!

We’re also currently booking our Valentine’s Day sessions. For the young ones, we’re putting together a kissing booth that will make for a really gorgeous backdrop. For all the adults, we’re putting together short mini sessions at our favorite outdoor shooting location out in Boerne. These sessions would make for great gifts for your loved ones or for mom’s of little ones that want adorable photos of their littles!

We’re also introducing a referral program. If you’ve shot with us before and happen to know other people that need some photos done – refer us! If they book a session, you’ll get your next session for 50% off. Just tell them to use the code BOSHNASTY20! We love our return costumers and want to share the love with everyone!

As usual, we want to thank everyone for all of the support. Heading into a new year is always a little scary, but we’re surrounded by people that are so supportive and so willing to enjoy all of the work that we put out. Thank you, thank you, thank you! This is a dream and we’re so stoked to keep on living it.

Until the next time, friends! Keep on adventuring…

UTSA Men’s Basketball v Texas State!

Happy Thursday, everyone! It’s insane to think that we’re in a completely new year and decade. There were a lot of great things in the last ten years, but I’m so looking forward to the next ten! Here’s hoping the year ended in the best of ways and the new decade started with a bang.

UTSA Men’s Basketball starts their conference play today, so it was only appropriate to pump out one of the many games I’ve shot during the pre-season. I’ve had a great time following the team around, documenting all of the their play thus far and can’t wait to see where conference play takes them. As a photographer, it’s the greatest to get to work on my craft and enjoy all of the perks of being court side watching my very favorite game.

This year, the fellas headed down to Texas State to play the I-35 rivalry game that’s much awaited each season. When we walked into the arena, it seemed like there were more UTSA fans than anything else. In the end, the over abundant presence of all my fellow Roadrunners could be heard loud and proud.

As you go through these, enjoy the tenacity that each guy played with. As the game progressed, the guys built up their confidence and it’s plain to see not only how well they move the ball, but how much fun they’re having while doing it. These were a blast to shoot, so I hope you enjoy them just as much!

There you have it! The fellas take on Florida Atlantic at 6PM CST. Make sure you keep track of their progress and cheer on our Roadrunners!

To bring in the New Year, we’re skipping all the way to Valentine’s Day! Over the last couple of weeks, I’ve been scouting around to put together a gorgeous Kissing Booth backdrop. Which means we’re hosting Valentine’s Day mini sessions! These will be fast and quick and filled with Valentine’s goodness and lots of kisses. You can snag a spot now for only $75.

On that note, we’re looking for a couple models to come shoot with us to advertise our beautiful backdrop. If you’re interested in shooting with us, fill in the contact form below and grab the spots while you can! We’ll give you a couple of shots in exchange for your time.

Lastly, all of our full length sessions are 20% off! We’re celebrating our entry into the 20’s and can’t wait to work with you guys throughout the year and into the next ten years!

We’re so stoked to be able to continue this business into the next decade and couldn’t do it without you guys! We’re so insanely grateful for the support of each and every person that books a session, looks at our posts, or simply glances at one of our pictures. It’s the greatest gift we could possibly ask for. Thank you, thank you, thank you!

Until the next time, friends! Keep on adventuring…

UTSA Basketball v. Wiley College

Happiest of hump days, everyone! The Christmas holiday is quickly coming & that means the end of the semester with it. My day job is stupidly busy, which is lots of fun but kind of hectic, too. I’m so very stoked to have my photography to cut into the stress and bring me all the fun!

I figured a nice home win yesterday was a good reason to drop a game gallery. It’s always nice to go back and revisit each of the games after the fact. Initially, I go through and pick out the photos that catch my eye – but when I go back and actually take time to edit the gallery, I go through each shot one by one. In a way, it’s like watching the game all over again. It’s cool to see what memorable plays look like slowed down, or how each of the guys change and progress from game to game.

If you haven’t started coming to the games yet – that’s okay! There’s still a ton of basketball left to play and watch. As the season progresses, each of the games will be more and more intense – which is always a blast to watch. Either way, you can check back here and get all the updates you need.

As you go through these, I hope you enjoy how excited the guys are when they’re playing well. You can see the joy of playing the game on their faces – on top of the intensity, of course. Not only do they look happy playing, but they won a game in their orange jerseys!

* Fellas, if you’d like a copy of any of these photos, shoot me a message! They’ll look much better in their original format. *

There you have it! If you’re up for a little road trip, the fellas are taking on Texas State on Saturday. It’s always a good game and the atmosphere in their gym is always exciting!

We’re currently still offering our Black Friday/Cyber Monday deals – which means you can grab a full length session for $135 and a mini session for $60. & since it’s engagement seasons, we’re offering $250 off of all our wedding/marriage packages. These are our lowest prices of the year & the best time to grab a spot for a session. I don’t have too much space left and I’m loving every single second of these holiday sessions.

Since I’m such a fan of UTSA and all of the greatness it has afforded me, I’m putting our senior session prices down to $75 until 12/12. It’s a lot of fun to celebrate with all the new alum as they prepare to walk the stage!

Please capitalize on these prices while you can – we’ll be increasing our prices in the new year!

If you’re interested in any of these sessions, use the contact form below. I’m starting to put the end of the year together and I can’t wait to meet with all of you guys!

As always, thank you! We could not do this thing without you guys and there’s not enough words of thanks I could say to express how important you guys really are. We’re so stoked for this journey and can’t wait to see where it takes us!

Until the next time, friends! Keep on adventuring…

Sunshine Slam – Game #3 v. Delaware

Happiest of Tuesday’s, everybody! I’m hoping that everyone is enjoying the time leading up to the holiday with family and friends. The end of the week is when the craziness begins, so enjoy the calm while you can! As for the Modica’s, we’re enjoying all of the holiday and then some.

Today’s blog is all the final game in UTSA’s performance in the Sunshine Slam against Delaware. These are probably the best of the bunch in my opinion – mainly because I love shooting these fellas in their white jerseys. Regardless of that, the game was one of the better of the bunch, too! There are plenty of cool three point shots in this group of photos.

Despite not getting the results they wanted in Orlando, all of the games were good learning opportunities nonetheless – & I don’t mean just for the guys. Every time I get to shoot, I feel like I’m learning something completely new. The best angle for these shots was sitting on the floor – so I needed to figure out the best way to do that with the angle I like to shoot and my height. It was a lot of fun, to say the least.

As you go through these, enjoy how laid back the guys seem to be in them. Out of all three games, they seemed to be more at ease in their game play than all the rest.
