I am SO excited about these two. Sweet, considerate, loving and laid back, Megan & Tim gave their all for their engagement pictures in Fredericksburg on their family land.
It doesn’t get any better than this! I can’t wait until the wedding day 🙂
She had a beautiful vision for her wedding day, taking place at the same place her mother and father married, the A.D. Bruce Religion Center (U of H Chapel) in Houston. It’s a gorgeous place.
Kelly & Mark said I do in classic style and then proceeded to dance the night away at The Parador, where they were serenaded by each of their mothers who sang the Supremes ‘Can’t Hurry Love’. Their first dance included a timeless dip and kiss that would make any bride sigh with stars in their eyes.
It was absolutely perfect and I’m so excited to show a glimpse of what it felt like!

Emily and Justin gave me all the feels when they came in and told me about themselves. They had equal interest and input for their big day and just the way they looked at each other, I could feel that at times there was no one in the room but the two of them.
They had a beautiful ceremony and reception at The Historic Heights Fire Station and danced the night away with all of their close friends and family.
Justin and Emily, you two make my heart smile.

It’s a valuable thing to me, taking engagement pictures for couples who I will be with on the day of their wedding. It helps me see and feel the chemistry between them; to see how the dynamics are between the two of them and myself, and to help them get comfortable with the camera attached to my hand.
Capturing love is my thing, and these two made that sooooo easy 🙂
I was blessed with the opportunity to photograph Kim and Charlie’s wedding in East Texas at Stone Oak Ranch. I was so happy that Kim called me to tell me that she and Charlie were engaged and needed a wedding photographer, and that they wanted it to be me. It’s the highest form of flattery, and I LOVE photographing people who are in love.
Sometimes, the day is freezing, or raining, or someone forgets something. Maybe family chaos is at it’s peak. With weddings, there are always things that come up unexpectedly, but one thing that Kim told me was that in the end, it doesn’t matter because they are happy and get to be married.
Congratulations and many years of happiness to you both and your new family.

This girl. There’s so much I can say, but I knew when she came to me her senior year of high school that when I photographed her, she would be one for the books. That was over four years ago. We’ve kept in touch, stayed friends and she’s very special to me. We chat on Facebook and Instagram, she’s my number one sidekick at the Houston Bridal Extravaganza and now, she’s graduating from college.
Steph, I’m so glad that God (and your Mom 😉 ) brought you to me. I’m so thankful for our lasting friendship and can’t wait to photograph all that life brings your way.
Oh…and the black and white picture with her dog Whiskey- that’s not photoshop. He just loves the camera!
Gina & Rick got married at the Crowne Plaza Downtown this November. They were probably two of the most relaxed people to get married…or at least they looked that way. Surrounded by friends and family, they had a quiet candlelight ceremony that fit them perfectly. Afterward, a mariachi band greeted them in their first steps as husband and wife! Once the formalities were over, Grupo Kache kept a crowd on the dance floor with dresses swaying and hair flying.
Rick is a quiet guy, but the love I see in his eyes for Gina is so sweet. I know these two will be very happy together 😉

I didn’t think twice when Lesley from Houston Bridal Gallery asked me to photograph a few of their lovely wedding gowns. This first dress is paired with lace, modesty and romance for the bride who isn’t afraid to be noticed.
Teamed with some of the greatest wedding vendors in Houston, Heather Benge Events made this all possible with her creative, fresh and organic imagination!
F. Dellit Designs brought a fairytale to life with blush florals, soft green moss and a valance of hanging glass orbs filled with flowers. The linens were provided by none other than Krystal with EB Inc Events who always has such a variety and eye catching linens with the latest trends. She went with undertones of gold and a shimmering overlay. Elecia and Allison of Dancing Pen & Press outdid themselves providing handwritten guest cards pinned to a moss backdrop and floating in an ornate gold frame; their letterpress wedding invitations are sure to impress with the quality and depth. The cake, provided by For Heaven’s Cake, commanded attention from across the room with simple colors of gray and white. Our lovely model was on point with gorgeous Makeup and Hair by Heather Williams…isn’t she stunning? Our romantic setting was provided generously by the lovely Paula at The Gallery, a French Mediterainian style wedding venue, wooing us with it’s brick, moss and classic architecture.
It was a pleasure working with you all, and I look forward to more!
Stay tuned for a feature on the Houston Bridal Gallery Juniper dress. This is one you don’t want to miss, right on trend with 2016 colors of the year! 😉
This day, I was more grateful than I ever have been that I am a wedding photographer. This bride and groom is very special to me, and their gorgeous wedding in Galveston was just top notch.
Love finds you when you least expect it. For Julie and Anthony it was a family gathering where neither of them planned on meeting the future love of their life. Jules is a very close friend of mine. We’ve had ups and downs, laughs and cries; we’ve been through a lot together. Seeing her so incredibly happy gives me happiness and peace beyond words. She’s going to be such a wonderful wife for Anthony.
I had to pause time and again just soaking in how classically beautiful that Julie looked with the waves in her hair and dazzling custom David Peck wedding gown. Anthony was a tall, handsome and debonair gentleman in his black tux. Neither of them could WAIT to see each other and as Jules walked down the isle, you could tell that he was the one she’d been waiting for all of her life.
Watching them dancing together and the gazes into each others eyes, no one else was in the room but them.
It was the biggest honor for me to capture this day. I’m so absolutely grateful to have the both of you in my life.
Jules, I love you.
