Callie + Ryan

Callie and Ryan's big day by far is one of my all time favorites! I just

adore everything about these two, their wedding and venue.  The

ceremony and reception took place at Balmorhea. It was my first time

shooting there and the space was to die for! 

From the moment I arrived to the very end you could feel

all the love and excitement  everyone had for them. The day was

filled with tears of joy, laughter, more tears of joy and yes, more laughter.

And just when I thought things couldn't get any better, they pop out the

cutest  renaissance cups that link metalic  hands at dinner instead of  

champagne flutes. Details Galore, love, love love!

Quynh + Eric

You may remember this lovely duo from their Austin engagement session last year. This was my first Vietnamese wedding and it did not disappoint. I loved everything about Quynh and Eric's big day from the beautiful traditions to the colorful outfits. 

It was a full day of laughs, tears of joy, amazing speeches, and of course a little bit of dancing!

Oh Yeah and by the way, these guys are doing it all over again in Vietnam! Congrats Quynh and Eric!

Chloe + Thomas | St. Regis Hotel

Earlier this month I had the honor of capturing Chloe and Thomas's Korean wedding. The ceremony and reception took place at the glorious St. Regis in Houston, TX.  I love witnessing different wedding traditions; there is so much meaning and symbolism rooted in these celebrations. These two are simply the sweetest couple you will ever meet and their wedding day was filled with tons of family members and friends. I have to admit Chloe had some of the BEST bridesmaids ever! They were constantly making sure everything was perfect and checking in with her to see if she needed anything. The Korean wedding ceremony symbolizes the joining of two families which was then followed by the traditional Paebaek ceremony. I wish these two nothing but many years of love,  good health, and happiness! Congrats!

Jaime + Mark | Kemah Boardwalk

I have to start this post by saying I absolutely LOVE my job! I have no

idea sometimes how my life worked out to be how it is, and a big part of

that has to do with the relationships I have with my clients.  They are just

AWESOME people!! Jaime and Mark had me feeling like I was the luckiest

person in the world getting to spend the afternoon with them and Ethan,

Mark's best friend/my assistant for the day =), cruising around the

boardwalk. Our time together entailed non-stop laughter and capturing

 amazing images of the happy couple. 

Thanks Ethan for all your help, and I look forward to seeing everyone on

the big day!

Richard and Michael's wedding is on the blog!  You may remember this handsome pair from their engagement session this past May!

There were some serious vendors involved on their big day.

 Their wedding was a wonderful experience that took place at Hotel ICON with Robert Attra as their officiant and tons of beautiful flowers from AJ's Urban Petals!

It was my first time working with Bella Luna, wedding coordinators, and Lisa and Brandy could not have been more perfect! These two ensured everything ran smoothly from start to finish and most importantly created the couple's fairytale wedding!

The beautiful cake was created by Susie's Cakes, and gorgeous decor and rentals came from EB Inc.

Hannah + Andrew's Wedding | St. George Orthodox Church

You may remember these two from their Kemah engagement session

and Hannah's gorgeous bridal session! 

Their wedding took place at the glorious St. George Orthodox

Church where Andrew's father the priest, married them!

This wedding definitely made my top 5 list. I laughed so hard and cried a

few times at all the  kind words that were spoken

to the lovely couple. And if you don't already know,

Hannah and Andrew are not your typical pair. Not only are these two 

beautiful  inside and out but they also sing and play the guitar!!

Instead of a first dance, they shocked the crowd with a beautiful duet!

Many congrats you guys! Wishing you nothing but pure joy for many

many years to come!

Hannah's Bridal | Lanier Theological Library

After photographing an incredible wedding for Hannah and Andrew, I'm now excited to finally share some of Hannah's gorgeous bridal portraits. She wanted something simple yet romantic for good measure. We had a blast wandering around the property, and nearly took too many photos. Narrowing these down for a basic blog post was a doozy, so I just included a whole bunch :)

 

Wedding photos coming in the near future, so stay tuned!
