Summer weddings in Houston are usually pretty brutal temperature wise, but I don’t remember that being the case on Kristin & Daniel’s wedding day this September.  It was a calm and quiet day, no crowded bridal suite, just a relaxed vibe all around.

This was a small wedding with close knit family and friends.  The reception was candlelit with warm tones, AMAZING food, full glasses and young men wooing the seasoned ladies on to the dance floor.  It was a gorgeous night to be a part of.  It was also my cousin’s wedding, so that makes it a little extra special for me because her family is my family.

I’m so happy for the both of you and wish you many gourmet home cooked dinners, nights of laugher and love ahead.

Meeting Heather & Colin just by luck, we got together on a Saturday afternoon during a crazy rainstorm.  I avoid saying torrential downpour because we just experienced one of the worst storms in history, here in Houston with Hurricane Harvey.

Right off the bat, the newly engaged couple was friendly, funny and opened themselves up to tell their story to me.  Colin let me know that ‘he doesn’t take good pictures’.  I said, “You are handsome and you will do great!”  He says…”Oh, I know I’m a great looking guy–I just have that whole Chandler thing going when the camera is on me”.  I about died laughing.  Grinning ear to ear now, just writing about it.  But wait…THERE’S MORE!  He also fences!  You know…the sport with the mesh masks and skinny sword thingys?  Interesting, right??    Heather is not your average woman.  She won me over immediately with that red hair, but I soon came to know that she sings in a rock band and enjoys welding and working with wood.  She even made the wooden piece for the ceremony.  And to top it all off, she is a first generation Scot.  She grew up spending her summers roaming the Scottish Highlands and swimming in Loch Ness (or you get the idea)  She’s got that whole ‘Brave’ thing going on 😉   #coolchic

Photographing their wedding was very special to me.  They had planned to get married next year sometime, but life is what happens when you’re busy making plans.  They decided on a much more intimate setting and married in front of 15 of their family members right in their own living room.  They chose to have a small and sentimental ceremony but there was BIG love in that room.  The story of who they are as individuals, how they met, their love story and how he proposed in the old stomping grounds of where Heather used to play as a girl in Scotland were all told.  It was an honor to be a part of their story.

Afterward, they all toasted with champagne and once we took their wedding portraits, they headed to Benjy’s for dinner and drinks.  I’m so grateful to have met these two super awesome people.  I can’t wait to see what life brings for them.

This July I was able to document Adrienne and Chase’s wedding day.  I’ve truly enjoyed getting to know them both as well as Adrienne’s parents.  What special people!

The morning and early afternoon were gorgeous and sunny, but mid ceremony, a torrential downpour hit the city of Houston (typical summer weather) and we had to come up with a backup plan for portraits before the reception.  Everything went smoothly and most importantly, I could tell that the newlyweds were enjoying themselves!

Adrienne is a bit of a crier 😉 so the tears were flowing during speeches, but the dance floor had nothing but smiles and good times.

Chase & Adrienne, I wish you much love and happiness in your marriage.  Cherish each other.

These two GORGEOUS Houstonian’s had a perfect June wedding several weeks ago.  The day was absolutely beautiful and the bride was nothing short of classic, timeless and elegant.  The groom was almost unrecognizable as I went in to visit with him before the ceremony.  Tall, handsome and ready to see the woman he would spend the rest of his life with.

Each event throughout the day and leading into the night topped the previous.  From the first moment she walked through the doors of St. Anne’s Cathedral, the tearful speeches to the first dance, Banana’s Foster presentation all the way to the exit, it was perfect.

To the happy couple, I can’t wait to see what life brings your way.

Now that Catherine and Scott are married, I can finally show off Catherine’s bridal portraits!  I’m so in love with this session.  This day was one that we really lucked out on.  It was early June and was one of those flash flood weather days.  Richmond seemed to be the ONLY area that the rain stopped and the sun barely peeked through for us and the pictures turned out SO GREAT!!

Catherine, you’ve been such a blessing in my life and I love that you put so much thought and effort into your pictures.  Also, you guys!  She MADE her own floral crown and bouquet for this session…I can’t believe how talented she is.  <3

This last one…most won’t like it, but I just gravitate toward it.  There’s no expectation, no pressure, she doesn’t even know I’m taking the shot.  She’s just staring out at the longhorns across the field and I love the simplicity of it. <3

Catherine and Scott were married at Briscoe Manor on a perfect sunny day this May.  Everything about this day was amazing.  Catherine put in soooo much hard work for the tiniest of details to make the day of their wedding special.  She and Scott thought of so many things to share with their guests, including the traditional Baylor Dr. Pepper floats!

Scott looked extremely sharp in his royal blue suit and Catherine was nothing short of stunning .  The day was theirs and after the guests sent them off, they set off to Banff, Alberta for their honeymoon.

You two, I’m so glad that I met you both and I look forward to more dinners together!
