Robert has been planning to propose to Yarden for the better part of a year now, and the night finally came.  After setting a date, changing the date, going back to the original and then changing it a final time, we finally had the solid plan.

Robert took her to dinner at their favorite restaurant and then to grab a coffee before heading for a stroll on a perfect evening in Houston.  Perfect evenings are sometimes hard to come by, with this city.  You never know what the weather is going to do.  Never.  It turned out perfectly, and she was completely taken by surprise.  Once he finally pointed me out across the way, they walked over and I will never forget how pink her cheeks were and how her eyes were lit up with joy.

We got a few more pictures under the lights of the bridge before he whisked her off to an intimate party where their families were waiting to celebrate the news!

Mozel tov, you two!!

One month ago, Abby and Tucker got married at All Saints Catholic Church among their closest family and friends.  They threw a gorgeous wedding reception at the Four Seasons Hotel where everyone showed off their best moves, dancing and celebrating the greatest day for these two incredibly awesome people.  I was the lucky photographer who got to capture it all, from the groomsmen hoisting the groom up in the air, to seeing a father breakdancing on the floor, and not to mention the groom serenading the bride with their favorite rap song!  But wait…there’s also the Smirnoff Ice challenge!!  I got to meet all of these amazing people and freeze their moments in time.  Below is a *not so small* glimpse into their soiree!  For the family members in Canada who weren’t able to make it, I hope by seeing these picture, you feel like you were there 😉

Abby & Tucker, you guys are badasses!

Amy + Chad.  I can’t speak highly enough about these two.  You guys, they are SO fun, and SO cool.  We went downtown to capture their engagement pictures and these two were all about just having fun with one another.  They made it look so easy!!  If the engagement session was a preview of their wedding day, I have no doubt that I will be having just as much fun as they are 😉

Chad couldn’t stop making Amy laugh, or stealing kisses, or grabbing her bottom 😀  I am so blessed to call these two new friends.  After we were done shooting, we headed over to Public Services for a few drinks and then had an awesome dinner at The Hearsay.  It was so fun to just sit back and talk about every day things, getting to know them better and laughing about different stories we each had about the Renaissance Festival.

I can’t wait for the wedding this coming May!

First of all, GO ‘STROS!!!  Houston Strong, baby!  I am SO freakin’ PROUD of the Astros…the World Series Champs!!!  This city is on fire <3

Speaking of athletes, this is Kristin & Shane!  They wanted to shoot in the Houston Warehouse District this October for their engagement pictures.  We got up before the sun came up and got it done in time for a hearty breakfast after!  Let me give you a little background on these two.

Kristin & Shane are 1) high school sweethearts 2) retired athletes 3) one of my new cool neighbors 4) parents of a boxer identical to one of ours.  This makes them awesome 😉   Below is a small account of our shenanigans.

You guys…don’t let these adorable smiles fool you…these two are tigers!  I had SO much fun shooting their engagement session at Rice University.  I met with Elizabeth and we talked for a bit about various things, including family, her fiancé Casey and the vision for their wedding. She was sweet and had a bright smile and I knew I instantly liked her.

On the day we met for pictures, it was an unseasonably warm October day.  Maybe that’s what got them warmed up quickly 😉  We laughed about a nearby photographer making noises and faces for a small toddler’s session taking place and I started mimicking the same antics for the two of them.  I’ll have to try that again, because it worked!  We were all rolling.  They are also a lot more feisty than I originally thought and immediately felt more at home with them. 😀

They will be getting married in April and I just can’t wait to see all the shenanigans that take place at their wedding!

You guys, I have THE BEST couples.  For real.  They are brilliant.  I met Nicole during my first year at The Bridal Extravaganza in Houston.  She’s beautiful, bubbly and full of personality.  She always said she wanted me to be her wedding photographer when the time came, but you know how it goes sometimes…well–she got engaged and she HIRED ME!

I was equally smitten by her handsome fiance (at the time), and I LOVED how interactive he was with Nicole during their engagement pictures…especially when it came to hugging and cuddling her 😉  I knew the wedding day would give some gorgeous romantic photos and here they are, in all their glory.

Both the bride and groom have family and strong ties to New York, so it was fun to see all of their families dancing, laughing and celebrating this beautiful and amazing couple.

I hold you close to my heart.  Much love and happiness.

Summer weddings in Houston are usually pretty brutal temperature wise, but I don’t remember that being the case on Kristin & Daniel’s wedding day this September.  It was a calm and quiet day, no crowded bridal suite, just a relaxed vibe all around.

This was a small wedding with close knit family and friends.  The reception was candlelit with warm tones, AMAZING food, full glasses and young men wooing the seasoned ladies on to the dance floor.  It was a gorgeous night to be a part of.  It was also my cousin’s wedding, so that makes it a little extra special for me because her family is my family.

I’m so happy for the both of you and wish you many gourmet home cooked dinners, nights of laugher and love ahead.

Meeting Heather & Colin just by luck, we got together on a Saturday afternoon during a crazy rainstorm.  I avoid saying torrential downpour because we just experienced one of the worst storms in history, here in Houston with Hurricane Harvey.

Right off the bat, the newly engaged couple was friendly, funny and opened themselves up to tell their story to me.  Colin let me know that ‘he doesn’t take good pictures’.  I said, “You are handsome and you will do great!”  He says…”Oh, I know I’m a great looking guy–I just have that whole Chandler thing going when the camera is on me”.  I about died laughing.  Grinning ear to ear now, just writing about it.  But wait…THERE’S MORE!  He also fences!  You know…the sport with the mesh masks and skinny sword thingys?  Interesting, right??    Heather is not your average woman.  She won me over immediately with that red hair, but I soon came to know that she sings in a rock band and enjoys welding and working with wood.  She even made the wooden piece for the ceremony.  And to top it all off, she is a first generation Scot.  She grew up spending her summers roaming the Scottish Highlands and swimming in Loch Ness (or you get the idea)  She’s got that whole ‘Brave’ thing going on 😉   #coolchic

Photographing their wedding was very special to me.  They had planned to get married next year sometime, but life is what happens when you’re busy making plans.  They decided on a much more intimate setting and married in front of 15 of their family members right in their own living room.  They chose to have a small and sentimental ceremony but there was BIG love in that room.  The story of who they are as individuals, how they met, their love story and how he proposed in the old stomping grounds of where Heather used to play as a girl in Scotland were all told.  It was an honor to be a part of their story.

Afterward, they all toasted with champagne and once we took their wedding portraits, they headed to Benjy’s for dinner and drinks.  I’m so grateful to have met these two super awesome people.  I can’t wait to see what life brings for them.

This July I was able to document Adrienne and Chase’s wedding day.  I’ve truly enjoyed getting to know them both as well as Adrienne’s parents.  What special people!

The morning and early afternoon were gorgeous and sunny, but mid ceremony, a torrential downpour hit the city of Houston (typical summer weather) and we had to come up with a backup plan for portraits before the reception.  Everything went smoothly and most importantly, I could tell that the newlyweds were enjoying themselves!

Adrienne is a bit of a crier 😉 so the tears were flowing during speeches, but the dance floor had nothing but smiles and good times.

Chase & Adrienne, I wish you much love and happiness in your marriage.  Cherish each other.
