You’ll remember Renee from her amazing bridal session just a few weeks back.  She and Erik were married at Cypress Creek Community Church and celebrated at Northgate Country Club.  A few favorites…

I thought this shot below was so cool… Erik fixing his tie in the mirror and Dad looking on behind him.

And again… all four of these guys were sharing the mirror… 

Ahhh… looking dressed and ready now!

This was a request… and they made the most of it!

Since we let Renee shine in another post, I’ll focus the spotlight on Erik a bit… the guy doesn’t take a bad picture.

And our bride takes to the aisle…

And on to Northgate…

I was actually able to snag a few ring shots this go around (usually D takes the reigns on those shots).  I just like to prove to myself that I can do it too!

Dad shares a thing or two…

Looks like somebody’s having fun…

Renee with her Mom…

And the last dance…

Congratulations guys!

So behind this quaint little home stands an impressive rice plant that made for even more impressive pictures… 

And these were just all out funky cool… 

 

Thanks guys for being so willing to let us take you anywhere and for giving us all the time our creative minds could ever hope for on your wedding day!  It was a blast!



Variety is the SPICE of life (and photography too!)

Change is good.  I had the opportunity to be second shooter for Dianna a few weeks ago and I honestly have to say it’s a pretty fun change of pace to get to wear that hat every once in a while.  To top it off it was a “country” wedding out in Dayton, Texas at a quaint little home in the backyard.  It was a wonderfully low key wedding with lots of great photo opportunities.  And here’s that quaint little home I mentioned…

Krystal getting ready…

I just LOVED the fact that Matt opted for the “j.crew” look… I have seriously been waiting for my “california” groom for way too long!

Matt’s Dad was an absolute hoot.  

He especially enjoyed taking a spin with just about anyone who was standing around.

Including, the groom… I give you the “father-son” dance.  Ahhhh, variety!

Ok… I think this series below was my absolute fave from the night.  Her expressions are especially priceless.

But now to the point of our evening… Krystal is ready to walk the aisle and our ceremony begins…

Check out the flare!  Maybe this IS California…

Sweet… loved this shot of Matt…

And his expression below… we’re married!

More sweet light… and more favorites to come.



Emily & Brian… history repeats itself :)

Emily & Brian were married on August 2nd this year at St. Anne’s Catholic Church… and her parents were married on the same date at the same church!  I wondered how long Emily & Brian had to wait to get August 2nd to fall on a Saturday!  A little more interesting history… Emily’s father’s family (and I’m not sure how this works) have a “family” stained glass window at St. Anne’s… you’ll see a picture of the two of them in front of it below.  So lots of very significant planning (with the wonderful help of Angela Nix) went into this wedding and it showed! 

Emily wore her mother’s veil…

Our very dapper groom…

Ladies in waiting…

And here was that “family” window… pretty amazing…

We headed over to the Houstonian for the reception and captured a few more…

 

Be sure to check out Dianna’s blog for more soon.  Congratulations you two!



Renee’s bridals (my Gabrielle Reece look alike)…

I had the pleasure of shooting Renee’s bridals at the Conservatory yesterday.  Not only does she look like Gabrielle Reece… she plays volleyball too!  Here’s a peek into her session…

 

And this was THE shot for me yesterday… 

Renee you were amazing to work with!  Looking forward to the wedding next Friday!



Amy & Brad… part two!

We were a little short on time before the ceremony, so we captured their individual pictures at the club.  Love this one of Amy…

Before I could capture the above images… I had to deal with this…

Caught this guy in the grass waiting his turn… 

The happy part-eeee….

The happy couple…

Woo-hoo!

This little cutie was getting alot of showtime… Brad’s new little niece…

And during the toasts… (some of Brad’s friends had a few things to say!)

Congratulations, guys!



Amy & Brad… it’s official!

Amy and Brad were married in Clear Lake and celebrated at Lakewood Yacht Club in Seabrook, TX.  We had so much fun on their engagement shoot at Hermann Park (they’re the ones that jumped in the fountain for me!).  So I knew the wedding day was bound to be a blast, and they did not dissapoint!

Beautiful (and very excited!) Amy…

Brad and his Mom…

Heading for the aisle…

I love these next two… the gals and the guys.  Brad had like a gazillion groomsmen and the cool part was that they all claimed him as their best friend… says alot!

And here comes the bride…

Amy hugging her Dad after the ceremony…

So the plan was to visit this old abandoned historical “mansion” on the way to the Yacht club.  The only problem was they didn’t care too much for visitors… I think it’s haunted, because somehow, out of nowhere this guy shows up and tells us we have to leave.  But seriously… if we could’ve had just half an hour here… this place was magnificent!  Here are the girls taking a peek inside…

And Brad’s brother who found his own way to keep cool…

We were able to snap literally ONE picture of the two of them… and here it is!  This is nothing compared to what we could have captured.  But oh, well… at least they’ll never forget it!

Lots more to come in part 2…
