Intimate stories.
Honest Moments.

Hi, I’m Christian margain

San Antonio Wedding Photographer. Available – Worldwide


I’M CHRISTIAN MARGAIN, a wedding photographer based in San Antonio, Texas.

I’m a husband (a blessed husband), and I’m honored and humbled that you found your way here and are thinking about inviting me to photograph your wedding.


Creative & Timeless Documentary Wedding Photography

You should plan your wedding precisely how you want!
Whether that means breaking with tradition and throwing a wedding rave with a drag cabaret line-up, or simply popping to the local Town Hall for an intimate ceremony and then to the pub for pints, or going BIG.

The decision is entirely up to you, but terrific documentary photography that catches all the feelings and happiness that go along with this lovely celebration of love shouldn’t be overlooked! It’s my responsibility to capture the wonderful moments, large and small – the sense of being surrounded by loved ones who are all there to celebrate YOU – in photographs.

My Philosophy

Photographs have always been a wonderful method to relive some of our most beloved experiences. They become visual inheritance that we pass down from generation to generation. My passion is to take images that capture these moments in a purposeful, artistic, and cinematic manner.

FREQUENTLY asked questions

Meeting in person or over Skype to discuss questions and answers has always seemed like a much better option to me. Let’s try to meet up for coffee if you’re in the San Antonio, Texas, area.

I go out of my way to make the photographic experience as comfortable and natural as possible. I shoot with as little equipment as possible, and almost always by myself. I make certain that you never feel like you’re on display or that the set is a huge awkward production with lights, light stands, and assistants everywhere. There’s just the two of us, my camera, and a few lenses.

I’m yours whenever you need me throughout the day.

A good rule of thumb is 75 to 100 deliverable photos per hour of coverage. That number doesn’t dictate how much we will shoot. It’s how many pictures you can expect delivered after the wedding is over. When we are capturing your day, we don’t spray n’ pray, and we don’t undershoot. We are intentional in our focus and our goals.

Yup. All of them. Color and exposure will be exactly as I intend them to be.
