Texas Engagement Photographer | Erin + Carter + Dinosaurs?

Texas Engagement Photographer | Erin + Carter + Dinosaurs?

You’re probably wondering what’s in store for you with a blog title that includes the word “dinosaur”, and I think you need to buckle in! Erin and Carter are having a dinosaur themed wedding!! So obviously, when we were planning their engagement session, I knew it was going to be filled with fun. Since I am an enabler, I threw out ideas like t-rex outfits, so that way their engagement pictures tied into their wedding theme. What they decided on was just as good!

We decided the best location was to do them at where they are getting married: at Rice University. It is the perfect location for fun-filled engagement pictures! Erin and Cater were clear on what they wanted: fun photos, lots of laughter, nothing serious. I think it’s safe to say, we captured that and more!

And I need to share that with their wedding coming up this weekend, we are going to have a blast! I heard through the grapevine that there will be dinosaur balloons, a dinosaur themed cake and tiny dinosaurs hidden around their reception. I can’t wait to see these two best friends get married, I just know how much of a blast we are going to have!

Houston Wedding Photographer | Megan’s Bridals

Sometimes I feel like a saint, like when I hang onto amazing images like the ones from Megan’s bridals!! When Megan and I started talking about the look and feel she wanted for her session, she was attract to images of silhouettes, profiles of the bride and brides with their pups. Her style is a little softer, super feminine. Initially we had planned to do the session where she’s getting married, at the Houston Arboretum, but it would not stop raining!! So the studio it was! She included her handsome pup Bowie in some images, and he seriously stole the show!

Grandmothers

Megan’s last living grandmother passed away a week before the session, so it was important to her to honor both of her grandmothers during the session. She printed an image of the two women together, and we captured her with the photo. To me, this is especially important. I am moved by the tender sadness Megan emanates in these images. Losing someone you love so close to your wedding is always difficult, and these are my favorite images from the session.

Houston Engagement Photographer | Magic with Adriana + Adam

Houston Engagement Photographer | Magic with Adriana + Adam

This engagement session is close to my heart–Adam and Adriana are lovers of a lot of fun things, from Harry Potter to gaming to watching the latest movies. We obviously bonded instantly!! For this session, we did added a bit of magic to the images, by having them cosplay as Newt and Tina from Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them! They carefully picked out their outfits, wands and how to swish their jackets. Now of course the entire session isn’t them dressed up, but let’s not lie, that’s the best part of this session!! As Adam + Adriana are from the Alvin area, we did pictures in a local park and a local historic building.

About the Couple

These two met in high school and haven’t looked back. I love it that they have been together this long, growing up and growing together as a couple. They shared from the start a passion for gaming and movies. This matured into a passion for food, trying new places to eat and exploring the amazing food scene in Houston. One of their favorite places to eat is at Gordon Street Tavern, and I don’t blame them–that place is delicious!!

The Proposal

They took a birthday vacation to New Braunfels and stayed in Fredericksburg for a couple of days. They walked the town, and went to take a scenic look around the churches close to sunset. Adam proposed outside one of the churches while Adriana {channeling her inner photographer} was attempting to take pictures. She said yes {duh!} and the rest is history!
