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!

Ana + Everardo | Magnolia Manor

I didn't meet these two lovelies until their wedding day, but was blown away by how sweet and perfect they are for one another! They tied the knot at the Shrine of True Cross church and partied the night away at Magnolia Manor. It was my first time to Magnolia Manor, and it did not disappoint! Love all the mature trees that greet you as you pull up the winding road and the grand feel of the venue. Congratulations Ana and Everardo!

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!

other so much. The day could not have been more sweet, or more

beautiful! Thank you Harry and Laura for allowing us to be a part of your

special day.

Siobhain + Matthew

I love it when my couples are more about each other than the day itself

and that pretty much sums up these two!

Siobhain and  Matthew tied the knot this past Saturday amongst their

closest family and friends at Morgan Falls Event Center.

This venue has

the most  picturesque christmas trees! You'll see what I mean when you

scroll down!

 Congratulations you guys, I couldn't be happier for y'all!

 

Jessica + Joshua | Galveston Beach

Jessica and Joshua decided to have their engagement session in

Galveston, and I was on board immediately!

 I love when I get to explore

new areas, and this was my first time shooting in Galveston.

They are tying the knot next year at Hotel Galvez in Galveston! I always

appreciate it when my clients choose locations that have meaning to

them, as it adds a special element to the shoot. 

These two are clearly in love and I could snap shots of them all day!

Congratulations you two and looking forward to the big day!

Quynh + Eric | Austin Engagement Session

I absolutely LOVED this Austin engagement session with Quynh and Eric!

We started  off by exploring South Congress, Loved all the

COLORS, then headed to UT where these two love birds met!

They will be tying the knot next year here in Houston and I can't wait to

photograph them again!

Congratulations!
