Emily & Justin came to me and when they sat down, they looked at each other with such love that it caught my breath.  We settled a day to take engagement pictures, and they chose the ever so quaint and cozy Ouisie’s Table in Houston.  I walked in fully expecting to get right to work.  Instead, I found these two sitting at a table and telling me to order the bottomless mimosa’s.  Talk about the way to my heart…

We sat across from these two ladies, snickering at this statue of a dog they had sitting with them.  We took inconspicuous pictures with our iPhone’s as we laughed over champagne, orange juice and amazing muffins.  Then the people got up and left–sans the dog.  The waiter explained that the dog, Patience, belonged to the house and often made appearances at guest’s tables, delighting children and adult hearts alike.

We started taking pictures, and then would relax for a few sips of our refreshing drinks 😉 cooling off from the afternoon heat.  During that time, I caught the love bug from them.  To say that I’m looking forward to spending the day with them capturing their wedding is an understatement.

All I can do is smile.

I can’t stress how badly I wish I were a California native.  Bay Area, San Francisco and Napa wedding photographers must rejoice in the scenery all the time.

Happiness has long awaited the pretty young lady below.  When it found her, it was unexpected, and as a close friend, I was weary for her.  I’ve been proved by Anthony over and over again that he is the most wonderful person both for Julie and as a friend.  He’s kind, patient, smart and above all, a TRUE gentleman.  While Anthony was on business in California, they asked me to fly out to capture their engagement pictures in San Francisco and Napa Valley over the weekend.

We made our way to Castello di Amorosa to take pictures in the winery cellar and among the gorgeous vineyard.  Every wedding photographer in the San Francisco and Napa area is at a true advantage for the creamy golden sunlight and gorgeous mountains abundant in every direction.  The connection that I see between these two gives me complete peace that they are made for each other.  They have a gentleness with each other that I find SO refreshing.

On to Muir Woods and San Francisco, we took advantage of the whole day, which when you’re a photographer, can prove challenging due to mid day sunlight that is in NO way flattering!  Still, we prevailed and were able to take advantage everywhere we went.  I know it may sound cliche but I think the last set of engagement portraits at the Golden Gate Bridge were my absolute favorite.  San Francisco has what’s called a ‘blue hour’.  It’s my favorite.  The fog rolls it’s way in to cover the hills and city causing this beautiful blue haze.  During our session, a break in the clouds at sunset let a streak of pink make its way through and we were just in awe.

I hope you enjoy looking through this as much as I did taking them.

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 😉

Below is a small account of the happenings that warm summer day.

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.

Misty and Clint are getting married this month and chose me as their engagement and wedding photographer.  What an amazing compliment and a gift to spend it with two truly great people.  I love this couple.  Personable, beautiful and up for fun!  She’s a classic beauty and he’s her tall drink of water.  Due to the floods and continuous rain, we’ve postponed so many times, but FINALLY we have sun!  Truly can’t wait to share the day with these two.
