Ah, the perfect wedding date you’ve always envisioned…until you pick it and realize all the vendors you want are booked – your venue, photographer, coordinator, etc…etc…etc…that’s what it ultimately boils down to after you realize that your dream wedding date is already booked, right?

In the grand scheme of things, if your wedding date is the only thing that is giving you grief, you’re doing OK!  Don’t let a day of the month throw you off your tracks!  Things happen, goals change, dates change.  As long as you and the love of your life are standing in front of one another pledging vows of love and forever to one another, What. Else. Matters??

After three date changes, a change of venue and a lot of stress and worry, Megan and Tony will be married this coming March.  I met these two at a past Bridal Extravaganza and we’ve been in constant contact.  Finally, the stars aligned and they found the perfect setting for their wedding day.  It was finally time to plan engagement pictures.

Megan & Tony grew up in The Woodlands.  Sometimes they would skip (high) school and go sit at a new neighborhood park bench that they would spend lunch hour on, talking and kissing and dreaming of the future.  That future has arrived now, and it’s very real.

I cannot wait to capture the special wedding day for these two.  So much history and so much more future to come.

Lauren & Sam are married!  Now they can breath for an 1/8th of a second before making a huge move to New York City!!  New marriage, new city, new tiny apartment just off of Park Ave.

 WHEW!

Both of these newlyweds are in law, and from what they’ve told me, it’s not all Reese Witherspoon and subject matter jurisdiction 😉  They both work hard, and they work long hours.  They are smart and very good at what they do.  Silver lining?  Those who work hard, play hard.

They had a beautiful wedding at the Czech Museum of Houston and then afterward, they took time to visit with each table of guests, hug old friends and visit with family they rarely get to see.  After cutting the cake with a great grandfathers sabre, they threw the shoes off and danced together with those who were ready for the play hard part!

I have to admit that as chaotic as moving is, especially to another state, I am super envious of the fact that they will be there just in time for the fall foliage, chilly weather and beautiful window displays.

Good luck in the concrete jungle you guys – I have no doubt you’ll be amazing!

Kim & Joe got married in an intimate ceremony over the summer in Austin.

They returned to Houston for their wedding reception so that they could celebrate with all of their friends and family.  One of their favorite spots for lunch is Harold’s in the Heights, specifically for their chicken salad sandwiches.

They were no frills, no stress, no drama.  Happy couples, good friends, fun family and a bride & groom who enjoy good company.

Everyone came to celebrate the couple, eating good food and drinking tasty drinks.  We went out for a few casual pictures before they got serious on the dance floor.  Below is a small account of all the shenanigans – enjoy!

Every couple has their own vision when it comes to how they want the wedding day to go.  For Kathryn & Eric, they *LOVE* going to concerts together.  When you see pictures of them together, the majority are at concerts or music festivals.  Over 60+ concerts including Bonnaroo & ACL.  They wanted their wedding day to represent their own private concert – what a cool idea!!  For this, they found the perfect wedding venue – White Oak Music Hall.

A few months after they booked their venue, they got a call that there would be an actual concert at the venue out on the lawn.  EEEEEKKK!  How exciting!  This wouldn’t affect their wedding, if anything it would make it more memorable.  So while the different bands were rehearsing, we got to hear (and see) some of them just casually going through the songs just before the ceremony.

Both Eric & Kat were super chill.  No big to-do’s, no specific pictures, just capture it as the day unfolds.  There was a timeline but it didn’t dictate any stress over them.  If they were a little behind, no worries.  The crowd can’t watch a wedding without them! 😉

After the ceremony, we took a few pictures on the rooftop and then went down to dance and party with The Doppelganger Band.  As the night went on, they truly enjoyed themselves with their friends and family.  They got to hug the people and get pictures with each table, which was decorated with their favorite vinyl albums as centerpieces, and everyone had their own customized ‘Seastrand Altarnative’ concert wrist bands.  It was seriously so cool.

We got a few night shots at the end and you can see the fun of goofing off in the last shot.  After the wedding, the couple was able to go up to the roof to enjoy the last of the concert where Sublime with Rome was playing down below.

It was a perfect August night.

Stephanie & Matt were married at the beginning of the year.  They chose to take minimal pictures on the wedding day so that they could enjoy some of cocktail hour and join their guests.  They also wanted to have portraits in the daylight and the wedding was in the winter months.  With a 7pm wedding, that wasn’t happening!  We planned an ‘After session’, a session specifically for wedding portraits post wedding.  This way they are able to still have the portraits that they want and if their wedding day happened to be rained out, the reschedule works perfectly!

I’ve had at least a handful of couples who have chosen to do this and it’s a brilliant solution for couples who want to be part of all the festivities on the wedding day, and cocktail hour is one of the best festivities!

Looking at these two gorgeous babes, you wouldn’t even guess that we were shooting in a crazy heat wave.  The heat index that day was 108º.  These guys rocked it to say the least.  Afterward we cooled off on a rooftop bar with drinks and good conversation about family and friends.

Thanks again Stephanie & Matt, for choosing me to photograph your important moments!!

I was going through my bridal portraits the other day on the blog, looking for Amy’s session at The Crystal Ballroom.  Finally I realized they had never been posted, agh!  So, here they are!  I always have to hold on posting the bridal portraits until after the wedding but these just slipped past me 😉

Hope you all enjoy!

While the rest of the world is about to start celebrating fall, us Houstonians know a little better.  We are in the trenches of balmy 101° temperatures as of late.

Funny enough, the day we shot Kristina & Albert’s engagement pictures at Hermann Park, the heat index was 107°!  I’m pretty sure that not many couples could pull off looking so cool and collected in such heat.

Im looking forward to their March nuptials and one of the prettiest wedding venues, it’s going to be *amazing*!

Devin & Fred had their wedding this June at Big Sky Barn.  It was a perfect day.  June can be warm but there was a nice breeze and the clouds and sun took turns 😉

The day was full of special moments, including honoring parents and grandparents and capturing the sweetest emotional exchanges.  I don’t know which side of the tracks this boy from Deer Park and girl from La Porte will choose for their home, but I know that the life they will have together will be full of love, adventure and support from family that loves them both very much.

Devin & Fred, going on this journey with you from Pedernales State Park and all of our ‘funny moments’ that we won’t talk about publicly to waiting out the crazy weather and ‘other factors’ that wouldn’t budge for bridals to the most beautiful day of your lives, it’s been awesome.  I loved watching you both with your favorite twin nieces…they are so precious.  Fred, you are *so* talented with that amazing voice of yours – I’m blown away.  Devin, you are stunning.  What you do with the future education of children means so much and I know that you’ll be an amazing mommy one day.  I can’t wait to see the traditions created and the family that you’ll bring into the world.  Hugs to you both 😉

Heather and Jeff were married in Houston mid May, and this is a small account of their day through the eyes of this Houston wedding photographer.

Jeff was relaxed and all smiles.  He didn’t appear a bit nervous, just super ready to see is beautiful bride.  They decided to do a first look in the Magnolia Hotel before the wedding and it was really sweet.  Heather was nothing short of a princess.  Her dreamy dress, grandeur hairstyle, perfect glowing skin and flawless makeup, she made stunning look totally effortless.

The day was nearly perfect, and only rained for a few minutes while the group was on the bus.  We got out to take wedding party pictures and the sky let up just in time for us to make a world record of the fastest five minutes ever!

There was so much love poured into these two people.  The heartfelt speeches clued you in to just how special and cared for that they are.  The only one missing was little Portillo, their dachshund, but he at least made a cameo in their engagement photos!

I’m so pleased to present these images to you, Heather & Jeff.  Thank you so much for allowing me to be part of your day.

The bridal session that almost didn’t happen.  For real, guys.

Devin and I rescheduled like…FIVE times.  It was insane.  But finally we were given an open window.  It was a gorgeous day, but the wind was fierce and we almost lost the beautiful bride when her veil almost carried her away.  Fortunately, she was spared 😉

Anyway, now that this gorgeous brown eyed girl is finally married (as of this past weekend) I can finally show off her bridal portraits.  Don’t let her smiles fool you, she WORKED this session, and by the end, she was ready to have a massive meal!
