Richard and Melissa are good friends of mine so I was excited when they reached out about engagement shots at Hermann Park! They were engaged just a few short months ago at Royal Oak in Montrose, and wanted a session at the park with their pup Rascal. We got a lucky break in the fickle Houston spring weather, and met up at the park on a perfect day to shoot. It was a great time, and we all now know that Rascal definitely has a calling for dog modeling should he so desire.
Congrats again, guys!
Gina, Austin, and I met up at Onion Creek in mid-January after her brother Mike (who was my fraternity brother in school at Stephen F. Austin) referred me to her. Gina is currently relocating back to Houston to be with both Austin and her family, so it was great to be able to meet in person despite her hectic schedule. The two met at OU while both were studying for their bachelor’s in mechanical engineering, and the rest, they say, is history. After having to reschedule multiple times due to soggy Houston spring weather, we finally caught a break from the wetness and jumped at the opportunity to meet at Hermann Park. Here are a few favorites from the set. Congrats again, guys, I can’t wait for October!
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!
