JD and Deana’s wedding was something truly special for all those involved. Just days before 2014, their families gathered together for a small ceremony at Agave Real under perfectly clear blue skies. JD and Deana complement each other perfectly, it was amazing to see how few pre-wedding “jitters” there were. Both were calm, confident, and ready to tie the knot. I loved their engagement session at Brazos Bend, and was excited at shooting at a venue as beautiful as Agave Real. I love the western touches of all the details there, which reminds me of New Mexico, which I visit fairly often.
Throughout the wedding day, it was readily apparent that this was where these two belonged. It was so great to capture the raw emotion between them as they quietly danced together, unaware of anything else around them. Made for some truly special photos and reminds me once again why I do what I do. I couldn’t be happier for you both, JD & Deana. Congratulations!
Now that Macy and Kyle have tied the knot, I’m excited to present her bridal photos, which were taken mere weeks before their beautiful wedding at Tuscan Courtyard just south of Houston in Texas City. The scenery at Tuscan Courtyard is pretty incredible, with large trees creating a visual barrier almost like rolling hills in the background. With winter in full swing, all the trees were changing color in various shades of fiery oranges and reds. The light only got better as we got closer to sunset, softly fading away into a golden glow coming through the trees.
Here are a few favorites from the set, I hope you enjoy!
In early November, we all convened at Oak Tree Manor for the union of Leo and Alicia underneath the iconic oak tree that makes the venue so special. With the ceremony right at sunset, we elected for a last minute first look, and I sure am glad we did! We were rewarded with beautiful golden light from the setting sun, and an unlimited supply of awesome bokeh from all the Christmas lights adorning the old oak. As the light slipped away across the horizon, Leo and Alicia exchanged vows and became man and wife. Leo and Alicia, I had such a great time at your wedding, thank you so much for letting me document your story!
On to the photos!
