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…

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 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 #1 v S. Illinois

Happy Thursday, everyone! I was hoping to get this gallery up yesterday, but I got hit with the flu. I mean HIT – I didn’t do much of anything but sleep. Now that I’m feeling better, though – you’re going to get all three Sunshine Slam games in the next few days. So GET EXCITED!

UTSA Men’s Basketball headed to Orlando last week to participate in the Sunshine Slam. The weather was beautiful and the gym had some of the best lighting I’ve done action shots in. All of the guys have this really cool sheen on the photos that I think is absolutely amazing.

The fellas took on Southern Illinois in the first game of this tournament. I had to do a little Googling to actually understand what a Saluki was, but after that – I was totally down for their mascot. Upon seeing the guys on the other team, I knew it was going to be a fast paced game that was filled to the top with excitement and aggression. They didn’t disappoint, either!

Despite not getting the result they were looking for, the guys fought hard. You can see the absolute tenacity in their faces as the game progresses. I even included a shot or two of the fans that were just as into the game as the athletes were. If you’ve never seen these guys play, make sure you come out and catch a game or two during the season. They may not always win, but they always put on a show.

As you go through these, enjoy the exquisite lighting and the cool angle I got to shoot at. There wasn’t a media line to speak of, so I got to get up close and personal more than I usually do. It’s so exciting to be a part of the game in that way – & I hope it shows!

*Fellas, if you’d like any of these photos – please message me! I’ll gladly give you the better quality photo. & if you decide to use them on social media, a tag would be amazing.

There you have it! Check back in a couple days to see Game #2 of the Sunshine Slam. I got so many good shots throughout the weekend that I’m so very excited to share with all of you guys!

We’re currently booking our holiday sessions and man – it’s getting really really busy! If you’re looking to have some photos done, please make sure you book a session soon. It’s one of the peak times for basketball and we’re already pretty booked for the rest of the month! We’re also offering our cheapest prices of the year – so don’t miss out!

I’m also really excited to announce our Flower Vault mini sessions! They just put together their Christmas installation and it’s gorgeous – which means I have to make sure I shoot you gorgeous people there at least a time or two. This upcoming Saturday (11/16) and Sunday (11/17) we’re headed to Flower Vault from 12-5. You can use the contact form at the bottom of this post to grab yourself a spot – I’ve already filled a few out already!

As always, thank you for your support. This is a dream, and it’s only possible because of all you beautiful humans that contribute to it. Whether that’s booking a session, looking at a photo, or simply reading this post. Thank you! You are all the best and we’re soooo grateful!

Until the next time, friends! Keep on adventuring…

UTSA v Texas A&M International – 10/30

Happy Tuesday, everyone! It’s a big day in the Modica household – UTSA is taking on Oklahoma & that’s been a really exciting thing the past couple of years. I wanted to get these up in time for the game and it looks like I’m going to sneak in just in time!

Before the fellas headed to Norman to prep for this game, they had an exhibition in the Convocation Center. For the last couple of years, walking into the Convo on game nights has been the highlight & this year wasn’t any exception. For it being the first game of the season, the turnout was amazing – the student section was as loud as it has ever been. I see you, Bad Birds!

Both halves, the guys were putting their foot on the gas the entire time. It’s one thing to bring in a win after struggling and falling behind – but it’s a whole other thing when that win is brought home with tons and tons of baskets. It’s nice to see the come from behind victory, yet it’s so nice to watch these fellas be in the groove and stay that way. An absolutely perfect way to lead them into their game against Oklahoma.

As you go through these, I hope you enjoy the tenacity and excitement you can see in each of these guys’ faces. There has been so much effort and prep put into stepping foot on the court that you can see just how stoked they are to finally be there!

* Fellas – if you want any of these, send me a message here or on Instagram! I’ll be plenty happy to give you the best quality image *
