They walked in and I noticed Kegun’s big genuine smile, and how beautiful and tall Amanda is.  We sat down and I got to hear about what was most important to them on the wedding day.  I got to hear their concerns and what they were really looking forward to.  It was the last quarter of 2018 and these two were looking at a 2020 wedding at the gorgeous and ever romantic McGovern Centennial Gardens.

Though Amanda was more soft spoken, she had so many GREAT questions to ask.  I loved that she knew what she was looking for and felt super lucky that they both felt that I was the best fit to capture their special moments.

They completely ROCKED their engagement session.  There was *literally* zero warm up time.  First set of shots were some of the best ones and I think they were hiding the fact that they totally did model work in their teens.

Look through, give them some love and I’ll see you all soon!

The first weekend in March, a really sweet and laid back couple got married with all of their beautiful family and friends.  Ashton Gardens was the setting for this gorgeous and emotional wedding day and everything went perfectly.

Watching Lucila interact with all of her sisters and her mother was like getting a glimpse into their lives.  Seeing Russell laughing and joking around with his groomsmen made me happy.  This was the most serious I’ve ever seen them.  I know that these two people will make each other very happy and love each other deeply with support of their family.

This is a small account of the festivities on their most beautiful day.

Stephanie & Matt got married in a gorgeous ceremony at the end January at Annunciation Greek Orthodox Church here in Houston.  Surrounded by lots of friends and family, they said their vows and then headed into the church gym that had been transformed into an elegant setting. Along with the help of some great wedding vendors, Stephanie’s Mom made all of the floral arrangements and saw to it that Stephanie & Matt’s posh vision came to life.

Sunset happened right during the ceremony and so they opted to take minimal portraits after the wedding so that they could spend more time at cocktail hour; stay tuned for their after session coming soon! The speeches, traditions and dancing were just a few things I loved about this wedding.  Watching Stephanie’s sister Eleni dance for the new bride and groom during one of the traditional Greek songs was so AMAZING!

Your wedding day will be the fastest 10+ hours ever.  Make sure you savor the moments, enjoy your day and that it’s a reflection of you both.

This precious newborn girl was so good for me!  From the age of 19 to 25, I had roommates in college. The one consistent roommate was Jessica, who I met in college choir. We survived the poor college kids days (like the time we went to Jack in the Box and ordered one taco because we didn’t have enough money for two and they were only .99¢!!  Thank goodness JITB felt sorry for us and gave us 2 anyway!).

Now that we are full on adulting grown ass women, we can def afford all the tacos ?

We don’t see each other often, but I did get the honor of photographing baby Norah when she was tiny enough to bundle.  Love you Jess!  You and Mark made a perfect baby girl!

Heather & Jeff are getting married this year, and wanted to take their engagement photos at The Houston Museum of Fine Arts – specifically at the Cockrell Butterfly Center.  I was so excited to take these photos for them, and boy were they troops!  I knew to expect humidity, but when hair and makeup are involved, you have to be careful where you shoot, and make sure to find the ‘cool spots’, ha!

 

We saw so many beautiful butterflies, but not many were as curious as us as we were about them, so we just enjoyed the environment and ended our session at their place, complete with their rival football jersey’s that just happen to have the same colors!  Really looking forward to their beautiful day 😉

Hailey & Tyler wanted to take engagement pictures in my hometown of Palestine, Texas.  The thing is, they are from a little town in Nebraska.  That little town just happens to be maybe 15 minutes away from where a close friend of mine grew up…such a small world!

So, they are currently located in Palestine of all places for Tyler’s job!  I was super honored to have been able to capture their engagement pictures before they tie the knot back home.  They even brought their ADORABLE and very excitable labradoodle, Loki. Isn’t he precious?  I really love when couples include their pets (aka children) in pictures.

Thank you both so much for asking me to capture this time in your lives <3

Being a first time Mom is overwhelming, I’m sure.  You can read the books and you can nest and try to prepare, but until you’ve experienced it, there’s no real answer book.

All of that to say that baby Amelia was actually a month when we did her newborn photos.  It took some cuddling, feeding, patting and gripe water to finally get her to her resting state, but we got it done!  She did so well, and it was so cool to capture this brand new family in the early stages of bonding.

Love you guys.

The vision of taking engagement pictures in a red flowing dress among the mountains has long been in Stephanie’s head.  When her Dad put me in touch with Garrett, I learned that he wanted to propose in Colorado.

They would be taking their boy Whiskey with them to see snow for the first time!  While the proposal would take place without her knowledge, we planned a surprise engagement session in Estes Park with guess what…a red dress!

It was **freezing**.

Literally.  We are talking 10°.  Yeah.

Like, I was cold, but I was also swarmed in coats and scarves.  These two brave souls did a fantastic job of not looking like they couldn’t feel their hands, but we had to take several breaks so that Steph could warm her hands in where else?  -Her boobs.  Ladies, sometimes we gotta do what we gotta do, you know?

The time I spent location scouting for this shoot is crazy.  When you can’t just take a drive, you have to rely on Google, and it’s a beautiful thing.  Thank God for the internet.  All of that said, this was maybe a week into the government shutdown.  The day before, the news showed that you couldn’t even get IN to Rocky Mountain National Park let alone get down the road I needed.

Luck was on our side when we drove up two days later.  The snow had thawed and the park was open, but our road was still closed.  So you do what you do best, you handle shit like a boss.  We froze, but it was still so fun, and afterward we all found a Thai restaurant where we warmed up with tea, soup and some great food.  I love Colorado, but I especially love Estes Park and the Rocky Mountains.  What an incredible place to take in.

I’d like to give some love to Shannon of The Olive and Poppy for working with me long distance on this vision and doing a beautiful job on the bouquet.  If you’re looking for a florist in Denver, she’s your girl.  Also, Stephanie would probably not have returned from Colorado had our friend Caitlyn not lent me the white stole from her own wedding.  It was the only thing Steph had to protect her from the cold!!  Love you, Caitlyn!!

Steph & Garrett plan to get married on their anniversary, which just happens to be a leap year!  Really looking forward to witnessing such a special couple take their vows.

Love you guys!

What you need to know about Kaley and Brandon is that they are MAYJAH Green Bay Packers fans.  They are from Wisconsin, so I’d expect no less, and in true yankee fashion, the day we took these pictures just so happened to be that FREEZING Sunday morning in January…you remember that one.  The happy couple is getting married this summer in Punta Cana…swoon!  Below is a small account of our time together.  

I truly hope that you Packers fans appreciate their homage to non other than quarterback Aaron Rodgers!!!  There was even a guy who passed us as we were shooting and as he came by he threw the deuce and said, “A-A-Ron!”  So even though football is finally behind us for the year, we can still pay our respects to the greatest sport of all!
