Houston Engagement Photographer | Keeley + Eric

Houston Engagement Photographer | Keeley + Eric

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

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.

Houston Engagement Photographer – Crystal & Kenneth

Introducing Crystal & Kenneth

This engagement session with Crystal & Kenneth was like no other that I have photographed. Kenneth is a chef and he loves to cook for Crystal. They have a special ritual where they come together on Monday nights and break bread together, share their lives and catch-up because they are so busy. You see Crystal is a news producer and has crazy hours, just like Kenneth does being a chef. Their crazy hours don’t match, so when they get time off together, it’s special.

When it came time to plan the engagement session there was a strong consensus: a home cooked meal by Kenneth. A meal that is special, where Crystal would contribute and romantic pictures would be captured. It was perfect.

The Engagement Session

Kenneth planned this delicious dinner. He likes to think of the food he prepares as creating an endgame with flavor notes for the person eating it. When Crystal sent over the menu, as a foodie, I about fell out of my desk chair! And possibly excitedly wrote to another foodie friend about how delicious this engagement session was going to be.

Since this wasn’t your average engagement session, everything was done in stages. From making the homemade pasta, to finishing the last course. The best thing about this session though? These two are obvious best friends, partners for life. They exude happiness and a deep love for each other. It was truly a blessing to be invited into their home to witness their special Monday night ritual.

Galveston Engagement

Sarah and Earl had lots of ideas for their engagement session, a family farm {gorgeous idea!}, their venue or Galveston. Since these two love Galveston and it has a ton of visual interest, they decided on there. And it wouldn’t be an engagement without Sarah’s son Noah. The four of us got up to antics and fun one gorgeous morning, with some great pictures as a result!!

City Hall

We started the session at City Hall, all the cool looking pillars, with the brick made for some great images. And you know I can’t just have smiling pictures, I always require on tongue picture. Please enjoy their tongues *wink*

Sara & Matt

A little back story before we get into this engagement session. Matt and I met at Atomic Crossfit a while ago. Back before I was doing photography full time. He made the workouts better and funnier just because we were basically crazy together. Sadly I moved away from Atomic when I moved jobs. So when I get the email from Matt {one the most epic emails ever, by the way!} that they wanted me for their wedding, well you know I was there with bells on!

The Engagement Session

They wanted an timeless, romantic feel to their images. With a bit of a Mad Men feel, which Sara nailed with the dresses she wore. And those shoes! #shoegoals
