Bret and Meredith are a Houston “it” couple. Meeting at a trendy bar, living in their gorgeous home in Meyerland, and socializing throughout the city whenever they can. We loved when they said that they wanted their engagement session to be in Houston’s revitalized downtown The unique mix of architecture between the 1912 Rice Hotel (where they are getting married!), warehouse-style buildings turned into moderns bars, and unique green spaces make for a fun and dynamic session.
After we shot around downtown, we made a move to our favorite park in Houston, Centennial Gardens. We had about 20 minutes to shoot because they are super strict on their closing times. The park attendants even go as far as shouting at you with a bullhorn to make sure you know it’s time to go! Even with those pesky park attendants, Centennial never disappoints. With ever-changing landscape, giving you everything from gorgeous desert plants to romantic roses it’s a perfect backdrop.
We love small, intimate weddings. They allow for the couples to relax and enjoy spending time with their closest family and friends on one of the most important days of their lives. Sarah and Joe’s wedding was set in the gardens of the beautiful Brenner’s Steakhouse in Katy. After a small ceremony, everyone gathered inside for lunch with the newlyweds. We were able to spend some time walking the grounds to get some great portraits as well! We’re so happy for you two, congratulations!
It’s was a hot summer day in Texas when we drove up to meet Justin and Katie at their Airbnb in Galveston, Texas. They recently have moved to Baton Rouge, LA together, so it was our first time meeting them together.
Right off the bat they greeted us with warm smiles, and we can could tell we were about to have a great session. Justin and Katie may live in Louisiana, but these Aggies had Texas charm! We headed over to the Seawall right next to the Pleasure Pier for some fun filled beach shots!
Zach and Katie are both teachers and met teaching here in Houston. I like to say they are a modern twist on high school sweethearts! When we got together to brainstorm ideas for their engagement session, we knew we wanted to highlight their love of the arts (they got engaged at MFAH) and their love for the city that brought them together. The two are the sweetest, so I suggested a fun urban cafe, Tout Suite. Tout Suite, is known for it’s open modern design, delish desserts (some of the best macarons in Houston!), and great coffee. To showcase their love of art, Zach and Katie recommended shooting at Houston’s downtown Graffiti park. Wrapping it up, we selected Houston’s downtown city park, Discovery Green. At Discovery Green, you can get a great mix of green space and cityscape.
When we met Michael and Priyanka to discuss ideas for their engagement session, they told us they wanted something where their unique personalities were highlighted and they could feel comfortable. They’d recently gotten engaged in gorgeous Santorini, Greece, so we knew we’d like to incorporate a sunset near the water. Priyanka is a serious fashionista, while Michael has a more laid back style, so we sought out a location that could bring it all together. It didn’t take long for us to agree on a trip to New Orleans, where we could capture the classic architecture of the city, chill out in the Quarter, and sail away on the lake.
We are so excited to finally be able to share Chandra and Quentin’s beautifully intimate wedding at Avant Garden in the Montrose neighborhood of Houston! Their October engagement session at Brazos Bend was absolutely beautiful, but their wedding day easily topped it. We loved the small, intimate ceremony at Avant Garden, full of special moments between family and friends. We love these images so much, we hope you enjoy their big day as much as we did!
What a night! Armand and Alexa pulled out all the stops for their beautiful wedding at the Petroleum Club of Houston this spring. I first met Armand when he was just getting started with is own law firm. He hired me to take his head shots in his office, and I could immediately tell that he was going to be successful. His upbeat personality is infectious, and he seems to have found his perfect match with Alexa. She was one of the most laid back, fun brides I’ve ever worked with, and going through the wedding day with the two of them was an absolute pleasure. Congratulations, you guys, I’m so happy for you!
Dino and Shayla are perfect for each other, and the fun they had on their wedding day is evidence of it. Their ceremony outside on the grounds of The Woodlands Country Club was absolutely beautiful, and their guests never left the dance floor during the reception. We’re so happy to share these images of their day, we hope you enjoy!

I was contacted by a local company in need of portraits for their employees. They needed a few “standard” portraits, but in addition, wanted some that were more modern and less traditional. So we walked around north downtown, capturing the employees at a few different locations in order to get a nice variety for usage on their website and branding materials. It was a fun take on the usual business portrait session!
