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!
The third and final session, I tagged along as they headed to Discovery Green for their video session at the skating rink. It was actually great to have the videographer there commanding Mike and Jane’s attention so that I could concentrate on their natural bond with each other, getting some great shots of them laughing, being close, and having a fun (and surprisingly stable!) time on the ice rink.
Thanks for having such a creative vision for your set, guys! I am so happy with the way they turned out, and I hope you guys love them!
I was super excited when I got the call from Teddy’s parents that it was time for another session. It has been so cool seeing the little guy’s progression each time we meet, and we’ve definitely made a little bond together. We met on a perfect afternoon at Rice University to take some photos just before Halloween. While shooting, we discussed the intricacies of my speedlight, the color variations of M&M’s, helicopters, as well as his projected haul for Halloween. He even brought is pirate costume, which he switched into for a few shots towards the end of the session.
He’s quite the character – always inquisitive and always smiling. I can’t wait for his next session!
Austin and Gina’s wedding at the Woodlands Country Club was one that every couple hopes for when planning their own. Perfect fall weather, warm light, and a great group of friends that are ready to party. From the golden glow during their outdoor ceremony to the rowdy reception that followed, Austin and Gina spent their day surrounded by the people they love the most and the things that make them the happiest, and that shines through in these photos. Thank you so much for allowing me to document your story, and I can’t wait for what the future holds for you two!
