This gorgeous brunette headed brown eyed girl walked into my life this January at the Bridal Extravaganza Show in Houston. She ended up winning the session that we held a contest for, and so this summer, we set out, braved the heat before her August wedding and got it done. She did it like a boss and I can’t wait to keep up with this beautiful Godly woman through the years.
This Houston wedding photographer has a major post for you all today. The Grace Kelly classic beauty finally married her tall handsome drink of water at The Grove, in Discovery Green Park. The intimate and gorgeous upstairs, known as The Treehouse at The Grove was the gathering place for this beautiful evening. Misty and Clint both shared stories, special moments and drinks together at the Hilton Americas beforehand, and had their after party as well.
Misty & Clint requested that none of their formals be so ‘formal’, including their pictures together…so I let them just love on each other and shot the real time of them taking time to talk and reflect on the day. The only thing these two truly wanted was to have a simple wedding and to be joined as husband & wife. They did just that with their closest friends and family. The rest was just a bonus

The summer has been HOT, but this June was a gorgeous time for a Texas summer wedding!
Adam lucked out when he met Kaci. She loves ESPN just as much as he does. She loves him even more! Getting to share this day and document it for them was truly sweet. Small details such as having their home church choir welcome Kaci in singing “Come Thou Fount” as she walked down the isle, her Zeta Tau Alpha sorority sisters tying her ‘something blue’ bow under her dress, as well as Adam and his best men sharing laughs, whiskey and quiet moments together as well as having his Granny make her homemade pistachio cake for their cake topper.
These small things made this day that much more special, along with the love that this family shows for each other. You can feel the sense of community among these close friends and family. That’s what was important to these two. To start a beautiful marriage before God, and to celebrate it simply with the people closest to them.

When I watch these two interact and the gentleness that they treat each other with, I get a very warm feeling in my heart and feel so grateful to be an engagement and wedding photographer. I truly have a special place in my heart for these two, and the love that I witness happening before my eyes is so incredibly refreshing.
Sarah & Matt, I can’t wait to capture the two of you professing your love and joining as one.
