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.
I was so pumped to get to hang out with Teddy again! It had been exactly a year since we had our last session, and it was so great to catch up. He is such a funny kid, with awesome stories and jokes. It has been so cool to be a part of him growing up, which you can see in their previous sessions here, here, and here. Can’t wait until we can hang out again, Teddy!
Mike and Jane’s engagement session was such a fun, creative exercise in something totally new and different. We elected to have three separate sessions with three different feels to each, to create a little story line of their lives together. We started at Rice University, making our way to James Turrell’s “Twilight Epiphany” Skyspace on the far end of campus, just in time for the daily light show at sunset. The second day, we hid from the rain at Hotel Sorella, creating an intimate, formal scene with “fashion” lighting that was as challenging as it was fun! Mike and Jane fell right into character, and we produced some awesome shots. It is a style that I feel I am just scratching the surface of, and I would love to continue to work more with this particular look!
