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.
I’ve always thought that Aston Martin did a great job with making timeless designs, and this DB9 proves just that. Fitted with machine silver FR3 wheels from Ferrada, this car looks every bit as good as it did when new. Aging gracefully is not something that most cars do, and this one will look good for many years to come.
Pressing circumstances can sometimes lead to a beautiful thing, and being able to photograph Chris and Leslie’s wedding is a testament to just that. Only a few short weeks before their wedding, they were without a photographer. They found my website and reached out about last minute coverage. Their wedding happened to fall on an open weekend, and the rest is history! These two have such a warmth to them, making you feel like you’ve been friends already for a long time. We picked right up on the wedding day, getting some truly beautiful images that I am proud to now pass on to them.
I was excited about Marco and Cindy’s engagement since I have never shot up at the Woodlands before. Other than a random concert here and there, I’d never really ventured up that far into North Houston. It’s nice to sometimes get thrown off your comfort level so that you look for new and cool places to shoot. It was a bit of an exercise, and I really had fun with it! We walked all the way along the river, past the riverfront restaurants and bars. Walking towards Market street, we found some beautiful scenery that looks almost out of place in the Houston area! Cindy was a trooper and brought along some sandals to change into when we weren’t shooting – a very good idea considering we walked at least 2 miles around the whole area!
