Galveston Engagement Photographer | Cheyenne + Isaiah

Galveston Engagement Photographer | Cheyenne + Isaiah

I love that I live so close to Galveston! It means we get to do engagement sessions there frequently, and then I get to spend the rest of the day there, or go early and prowl around before the session. My favorite spot? The historical strand area, there are so many gorgeous doors and architecture!

Cheyenne + Isaiah

These two are so in love. They have been together since high school and have a connection that can’t be faked. As you can image, they have been through their ups and downs since they have been together for so long. When we were discussing possible locations for their session, it was instantaneous–Galveston! Cheyenne and Isaiah are having a destination wedding so having a beach feel to their engagements kept everything consistent. We also got a few pictures in the historic downtown and snuck their adorable pup into some pictures!

I love their outfits too, it’s put together without trying too hard!! Plus, they have a slight nautical feel the outfits, which is perfect!!

Enjoy the photos!

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 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!

Keeley and I met a few years ago when I photographed her best friend Emily‘s wedding. In fact, at that wedding I remember thinking to myself “that woman is freakin hilarious! I love her vibe!”, so when she inquired about her wedding I was excited!

Turns out these two are passionate about a lot of awesome things! They love, love, love their dogs, and they wanted to include them in the engagement session. Keeley loves Harry Potter, Eric is supportive. Eric loves being a Survivalist, Keeley is supportive. They both workout and in fact Eric is a Ninja Warrior! This meant that the engagement session had a ton of things it could feature, honestly? I love what we did!

Puppies

We wanted to have some cute pictures of Eric + Keeley dressed up with their pups. I love that they got adorable floral collars for the dogs. They were so well behaved! It was adorable.

Texas Wedding Photographer | Sarah + Russell’s Nautical Themed Engagement Session in Galveston

What goes into a nautical themed engagement session? Lots of creativity, cute props, outfits and a killer location! Added bonus? They brought their adorable pups to the session, wearing a bow and a sash! We were lucky that all the locations we used had recovered nicely from Hurricane Harvey, as we were worried that the places would still be flooded. Luckily, this was not the case!

This nautical themed engagement session also has small references to Paris, where they got engaged. A big shout out to Laced with Grace for helping with the ideas for this engagement session, it gave all the images a seamless, romantic feel. (more…)

Can I just come out and say how obsessed I am with Carson + Katy’s marriage proposal? And when I say obsessed, I am not being dramatic. Carson put a lot of thought and effort into this proposal, wanting it to be personal, fun with just a dash of nerd. And honestly, can we really say that Harry Potter is nerdy anymore?

The Set-Up

Carson decided not to risk inclement weather and rented a studio for the proposal–The Houston Studio! She had a vision of balloons in her head, and when I informed her of Big Ass Balloons, that’s when the magic started to happen. She got some amazing balloons, spelling the words “Marry Me” and two large balloons filled with confetti on the side.
