I usually share a bridal session the day after the wedding. But with Carson marrying Katy, I decided to stagger sharing the images. I can’t believe it has been a week since Carson and Katy had their magical wedding!! I will delve into this more when I blog about their wedding, but one of my favorite touches were the hanging keys dangling from the canopy. But enough about the wedding!! This blog is all about Carson’s bridal session!!
The Bridal Session
Carson, we’ll see if I find the words to describe how rad it was to work with you and how magical of a bride you made.
As if Rice University background weren’t enough to make me giddy inside, the following things from your session were perfection!
-your elegant white Rita Vinieris dress
-your understated bouquet from Blooming Gallery
-your fabulously sequined Jimmy Choo shoes
-the awesome work by Winx Salon for your makeup and and Etheria Spa and Salon for your hair
-and your MAGICAL SELF
As a graduate of Rice University, the location was the perfect place for the bridal session. Plus, obviously the feel of the place added to the overall feel of the images. Add into Carson, her dress and her possible awkwardness, and you have magic! If anyone knows Carson, will know how glad she was to have flowers in her hands because she worries about that stuff.
I’m so excited that I get to share your bridals with everyone now that you’re a Mrs.!!
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!
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.

I am not going to lie, Keeley’s bridal portraits were amazing!! I love that I get to share these bridal portraits because they are so fun and beautiful! Keeley goes to the beat of her own drum, and so when we were discussing ideas for her session, things like “eating Cheetos” and “cute puppies with flower collars” were thrown around. Keeley did not disappoint, and even brought a Jack in the Box burger for her bridal portraits! And now that she and Eric are officially married, I can share these beautiful pictures.
Keeley brought her two dogs with her to the session, and frankly, they stole the show. Lily Cat, the small darker dog was precious and all about the pictures. Eleanor though, she had to be convinced with food bribes and belly rubs. I don’t know if you can tell, but Eleanor might have given us some sass in her pictures!
And although Keeley is a self-professed non-girly girl, I am going to say she rocked the soft, beautiful photos as much as her hamburger, Cheeto eating photos!
