Destination engagement sessions are among my favorite.  Not just because we are shooting somewhere new, exciting and less familiar, but because of the moments in the car traveling to our destination.

Tina, Jarad and I flew to Denver this November for their engagement session, but the journey didn’t stop there.  Our ultimate destination was another 4 hour drive southwest to good ole’ Aspen.  In those four hours in the car, we gasped at the scenery, laughed about fun stories and cried about touching moments in our lives.

We shared personal trials and triumphs, talked in detail about God and how he helps us with our relationships, arrived in Aspen to take pictures in town, and then ended in Maroon Bells for their formal pictures just as the sun set over the Elk Mountains.

Tina was under the weather barely being able to talk above a whisper, but she held out in the cold like a champ.  She rocked her gorgeous designer sparkly white gown and looked like a queen doing it.  Jared warmed her up with his long wool coat as much as possible, cuddling up to her and snuggling close.

Afterward we went and had the most amazing meal at White House Tavern.  If you ever go, get the crispy chicken sandwich, it’s the top seller for a reason.  We got no real sleep that night.  We drove the four hours back to Denver, stopping for a hot minute in Frisco for some pictures Main Street to pay tribute to their favorite song and location it was videoed in.  Tequila by Dan and Shay.  By the time we got settled in our rooms, showering off the long day and trying to wind down, there were only hours until we had to wake for our 6am flight back to Houston.

It was all worth it.  Not only do I feel like Jared and Tina are family, but the memories we made those two days are priceless.

Meredith & Brian were my last couple of 2019 to tie the knot.  They chose Briscoe Manor and it was a gorgeous sunny and cool day.  Meredith wore her grandmothers wedding veil which was the perfect finishing touch.  As she opened her gift from Brian, her eyes filled with tears as she read what the letter included.  Brian’s mother is no longer with us here on earth.  Her wedding ring included little diamonds that surrounded the stone.  When each brother married, they presented their new wives with one of the four diamonds from their moms ring.  An incredibly special, sentimental and thoughtful wedding gift.

I was actually referred to these two by one of the grooms brothers who was a groomsman at another wedding I captured.  It was really special to know that they thought enough of me to give my name (thank you Matt & Callie!).  Brian and his brothers along with the rest of the grooms crew were all laughs and mischief.  It’s not every day that you see a groom look at his bride the way that Brian looks at Meredith.  To say that these two are a perfect match is putting it mildly.  They make being in love look so incredibly easy.  I hope you enjoy looking through their wedding day.

It was this July when I met Kat, her sister and her Mom for the first time.  I cannot express *how amazing* these women are.  Smart, kind and beautiful.  The best part is that they are women that I am extremely fond of and I can’t wait to get to know better.

Kat is incredible.  She’s on her way to a doctorate in child psychology.  Soon she’ll head to internship and   I have no doubt that she will do great things for many children.  Alex is a law man.  Don’t let his warm smile fool you, he’ll get you if you’re the bad guy!  He loves riding his bike through Buffalo Bayou with their sweet little rescue, Winnie right on his back in a dog carrier.  She has a pair of goggles and everything.  No doubt she’s living her best life.

This day could not have been more perfect, it was the first cold front of the season so the weather was beautiful and they were all smiles.  Kat & Alex work so well together.  They have no problem cuddling and getting close which makes what I do practically effortless.  I’m so grateful to be sharing such special moments with the two of them.  The wedding can’t come soon enough!

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.


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*!
