Kathryn & Dillon got married last month at The Gallery in Houston.  The weather was beautiful and so was their outdoor ceremony.  You could feel the love these two have for each other, as well as the love that the friends and family have for them both.

I remember the brides sister saying during her maid of honor speech, that Dillon has such a way with Kathryn that no one else has.  That he gives her peace and calm.  I pray that these two great people have so many blessings in their marriage, as well as more love and happiness with each passing year.

This is Brandi.

Brandi’s story is bittersweet.

This beautiful soul was to be married earlier this year.  I found her and her fiancé to be such lovely, truly endearing and special people.  I still do.

The difficult decision to not go through with the wedding was made. My heart broke for her. For them. I’ve been there. A past bride of mine has been there, as have so many others but it’s a pain that never truly goes away. You carry someone in your heart and that’s simply a part of life sometimes.

She had already ordered her bridal portraits but hadn’t opened them up immediately. A few days ago she texted me to say how in awe of them she was. I was so proud of her for opening those photos. That wasn’t an easy thing to do, but Brandi is a strong young woman. What further amazed me is that she gave her blessing for me to share her images with you all, and to tell a little about her story.

While we don’t always understand what God’s ultimate plan is for us, we know that there is light at the end of a tunnel. We know heartbreak, we know the loss of losing someone; the love of your life, a parent, your best friend. We have friends that help us through this. Who make us laugh when we feel like crying. Who say, come and let me take you out for some good old hot wings and beer 😉

Surround yourself in those people, and in happiness. At the same time, feel all of the feelings, cry when you need to cry, scream when you need to scream, laugh as much as possible and seize the day.

Brandi, you were once my bride, you turned into a friend long ago and I know one day you’ll be my bride again. I hold you dear to my heart.  Until then, that sweet Daddy of yours that I’ve heard so many great things about is watching out for you, along with your aunt and your Mom from up above.

Love and Hugs.

Steph

Brandi will be selling this gorgeous dream of a dress. It was worn for the bridal portrait session. The information on the dress itself is below.

The dress maker is Essence of Australia, style number D1932 in blush.  The original size was a 10 but was pulled in a good deal and is estimated to be a 6 or 8.  If you’re interested in the dress reach out to me and I’ll put you in contact.

This is my cousin Kristin, and alongside is her brand spanking new fiancé!  I was so excited to hear about their upcoming nuptials and even more excited that they chose me as their wedding photographer!  I was truly shocked, as they had their pick of so many amazing people they were looking into hiring.

Besides being extremely awesome posers for pictures, Kristin and Daniel enjoy cooking together, reading, politics and tending to their community garden.  They are both mad smart and half the time I have to get a dictionary out to make sense of their social media posts!! 😀

I’m truly honored that I get to be the one to preserve their most precious day.

Love you both.

This March I was lucky enough to photograph Claire & Michael’s wedding at the Texas Corinthian Yacht Club. March had some serious rain but once again, my couple proved to be awesome!!

They exchanged vows among a friends and family and afterward, the rain let up for some wedding portraits so we lucked out!!  I had so much fun capturing these two  throughout their special day and especially on the dance floor 😉

Claire & Michael, I wish you year after year of good memories and happiness!

These two are finally married! I met Alyssa & Manzur one morning at Common Bond and they made me laugh so much!  Minus the fact that we disagree on the best football team on earth, *cough*America’s team*cough*, they ended up deciding to hang out with me for some pretty important photos!

It poured on their wedding day.  I mean, poured!  You would have never known.  It had absolutely no impact on their spirits.  They laughed, cried tears of happiness, danced and celebrated a beautiful day because they had their friends and family with them to share their vows.

I truly can’t wait to meet these two for wings, beer and football while we banter back and forth on our football trivia 😉

A chilly January afternoon is when this Houston engagement and wedding photographer stood on the corner of a downtown street waiting on Nicole and Joe.  I happened to look over from where I was standing and the Gods of Light said “Stephanie…you should shoot here…” 😉  So that’s where we started our journey on the Sunday before the biggest game in football that was taking place in Houston.  (You know which one I’m talking about…)

To say the least, it was CRAYYY-zy downtown, but that didn’t stop us.  We rolled with the punches, and then took the party to a less insane location to finish up golden hour portraits.  The sun was going down and I was in panic thinking that we wouldn’t find a parking spot for us both as it was packed!  Then…all of the sudden, the parking Gods pulled two cars out in front of us and said, “...you should park here“.  So we did….and didn’t realize we needed to pay a meter so we each got tickets :/

Worth it.

It’s a bit random but I have BBQ to thank for meeting Jenna & Shane.  I know- random, right?  I’m standing in the 2 hour line at Killen’s Barbecue enjoying the free beer because…well…free beer and I get to talking with the family behind us.  They are in Houston to go on a cruise and had heard of the very popular Killen’s and decided to stop by before embarking on their ship.  Turns out that one of these family members is about to go into the wedding industry with a prop rental company, so of course we friended each other on Facebook and stayed friends.

Fast forward a few years and I’m gearing up for an annual trip to Portland for a photo conference.  My friend let’s me know that her brother and his girlfriend live in Portland so I’m like, let’s take pictures!  It gets better.  Turns out Portland, Oregon was hit with a snow storm that shocked everyone and closed down most of the city for a few days.  I arrived just in time to not have any issues and we got to shoot in the snow!

So maybe it’s not a big deal for the peeps used to the snow but for this Texas based girl who loves cold weather, it was AWESOME!

I touched base with Jenna & Shane to get a feel for their personalities since we wouldn’t be meeting before the day of actual shooting and they are HUGE outdoor lovers who love hiking and having fun, goofing off and not taking everything too seriously.  Of course they take advantage of the awesome craft beer that Portland offers, so you know, we have that in common 😉

It was windy, 25 degrees and I couldn’t have had a better time!

A chilly day in January on Galveston Island is what we went with for Alyssa & Manzur, who are getting married soon.  The fog greeted us and made it’s presence known by settling into our hair and floating around us.  We went with it and I for one am a fan of the fog.

Manzur had all the right moves to make his bride to be smile and laugh.  I have no doubt that he will make Alyssa happy for many, many, many years to come.
