Modern Downtown Houston Engagement Session | Marissa + Toan

Marissa + Toan’s engagement session was amazing! When we discussed what they wanted, Marissa knew she wanted to include their pup Oliver, a studio and a downtown feel. Since they are getting married at Annunciation Catholic Church which is in the heart of downtown, it is 100% fitting. As we were mulling over locations, we decided on my studio, have coffee at a cool coffee shop and then to go to a garage downtown and capture them on the roof. Once the plan was made, it turned in a modern downtown Houston engagement session!

Let me tell you about Marissa and Toan! These two cuties met on Coffee Meets Bagel, a dating site I have never heard of. But let’s be real, I have been married for 8+ years, so my knowledge of dating sites is not robust! They were each other’s first match on the site, and after their first date, they never looked back. These two love eating delicious food together, spending time with their family and raising their adorable dog. Even if Oli loves Marissa more than Toan….and when you look at the photos, you can see Oli’s reactions!

I love that we have bonded hard over food, and have tried new and different foods around Houston as we plan wedding shoots! I am hoping we ca have another food date soon, as we plan Marissa’s bridal session!

Harry Potter Engagement Session in Galveston | Taylor + Andrew

You know the cool thing about Taylor and Andrew? They 100% love and support each other’s passions and dreams. When Taylor reached out to me, she wanted an engagement photographer who could capture her and Andrew’s unique passions, which happen to include the beach, Disney and Harry Potter! And I am sure you know that I was all in. Taylor is a Ravenclaw and passionate Harry Potter fan. Andrew may not be as passionate as Taylor, but he was game for anything she wanted to do during the engagement session! And obviously we had a wand duel, because there’s no better way to show your affection in an engagement session 😉 It made for a unique Harry Potter engagement session in Galveston!

Taylor and Andrew are getting married in Florida, so having the beach in their photos was important to them. We met early in the morning to get the best light, and had some fun! We went to one of my favorite spots in Galveston, where the beaches are quiet, which is what you want! After capturing photos on the beach, we walked the Strand. We found some cool shops as we walked, specifically a magic shop. We obviously stopped for some romantic wand photos.

Fun, Romantic Houston Engagement Session | Aubrey + Sean

When I met Aubrey and Sean, I knew that we were going to have the best time capturing their engagements session. I mean we were doing it at the Houston Arboretum, which is a beautiful and fun place, but when it comes to Aubrey and Sean I was so right!! This engagement session was equal parts fun and romantic, as we strolled the Houston Arboretum. These two are so passionate about each other that the session basically captured itself. They fall into each other and needed almost no direction. In between sets? We would crack jokes and laugh. It was seriously such a fun, romantic Houston engagement session!

Aubrey + Sean

These two met at the volleyball court where Aubrey lived while they were both going to A&M. Their group of friends would hang out afterwards and there was a spark, which turned into this amazing relationship! They dated for the rest of the time they went to A&M, going to football games, having date nights and everything in between. When it came to proposing, Sean wanted to do it on their 5 year anniversary. They were going out on the town for their anniversary and at the last minute Aubrey changed up Sean’s outfit–no jacket and a different pair of pants. Pants that would show a ring sized box, and with no jacket, where was he to hide the ring box? Sean got inventive, and as he told the story, I collapsed into laughter–he had to hide it down his pants!! And so throughout dinner, he is literally sitting on this box! To get it out, he excuses himself to go to the bathroom, and comes back and proposes. Obviously Aubrey said yes!

I effing love how much these two are completely, passionately in love. You can see it in the easy way they joke with each other, their stolen glances and goofy antics. When I say their engagement session was effortless, I mean it. Want to make out? Sure they do! Want to be silly? Dang skippy! After this session, I am so excited for their wedding! I know we are going to have a blast!

Dreamy Houston Engagement Session | Megan + Amedeo

When Megan told me about her vision for her engagement session, it was all about showcasing the Houston skyline and her Vespa! And what it turned into? A dreamy Houston engagement session! I will be honest, I love Megan’s Vespa and it makes me want to own one. It’s not totally impractical for local suburb driving, right? We did a good chunk of the Houston session at Eleanor Tinsley Park, which was perfect for the Houston skyline!

Megan + Amedeo

These two have such a passion for life together! They are the kind of couple who love experiencing *life* together. One of the things I do to get to know the couples I capture, is to send them a questionnaire to see what they love to do together. These two? They are foodies! They love cooking together and trying out different restaurants. One of their favorite dishes? Eggs benedict. And they have perfected the cooking of the eggs and the Hollandaise sauce over 17 Saturday mornings. Honestly? I feel like I need to try their dish because of that time commitment. I mean, aren’t you curious as to what ingredients they tweaked to get it just right? And considering I love eggs benedict, I feel I am the perfect candidate to try this amazing recipe.
