THE BARRERA'S

ABOUT US

We are Alex and Risa Barrera. Together we have cultivated a passion for chronicling not only our life but the unique lives of others around us.

We are Instagram sweethearts! Yes, you read correctly, we met on the photo sharing social network of Instagram and married shortly after. It was a fairytale indeed, but that’s a story for a different time 🙂

We enjoy discovering the hidden nooks and crannies of our city, San Antonio. We get excited about covert vintage coffee shops, lush wooded forests, sunny days, blue skies, and quaint bakery shops.

But most of all, we enjoy taking life in together.

Whether it’s on the soccer field with a GoPro, recording videos on YouTube, walking around a local event with a camera wrapped around our neck, or capturing your special day; one thing is for certain… Our passion is to document the world around us.

Together, we desire to encapsulate the brief moments of your life and turn them into lasting memories that will endure a lifetime.

This is our story… Let us get to know yours.

Alex & Risa are literally the best! They were incredibly kind and generous with their time and energy on our wedding day and beforehand to help us prep. Their effort, dedication, and attentiveness to photographing our wedding and special moments throughout the day was baffling- everything was captured so wonderfully! They made an already beautiful day even more beautiful with their talent but also their presence. The photos are phenomenal- their creative aesthetic is so tasteful, elegant, and intimate. We are forever grateful for Alex & Risa and recommend them to everyone!

The Barreras have a great eye and their photography is really nice! It's not overly stylized, instead opting for a more journalistic style that still has plenty of artistry to it. We loved our pictures. The Barreras are extremely nice and pleasant to work with. We highly, highly recommend them!"

I'm very self-conscious and I was afraid of seeing that in my engagement and wedding photos. BUT the only thing I see in all my photos is love- and pure happiness. They captured all the special moments I wanted and more. They truly went above and beyond the call of duty!!

Working with Alex & Risa was by far the best experience I've ever had with any photographer! We take photos often but they truly made our day memorable by their passion and skill. I knew by our friend's experience (Nick & Josie) that they would not disappoint and after receiving our photos yesterday I will admit they continued to surprise us with their excellent service and work!!! Thank you again Alex & Risa <3
