It was a typically hot August day in Houston. But you wouldn’t know it by looking here.

I met Kristina & Yaniv in front of the Japanese Gardens in Herman Park and began documenting their love story through the lens of my camera. Both will tell you that at first it was a little bit of a shy start. I saw model material from the get go…but both of them are ever so modest of their good looks. :)
Kristina took special care in the details of this day’s shoot. We chatted by email about poses, and clothing, make-up, hair, photo angles…by the time the day came, I was super excited to put in practice what we’d been theorizing. It was playing out to be a slew of exciting possibilities.
I just loved how they both came dressed to the shoot. In my mind, I saw two Roman gods. Her delicately flowing, ivory gown and both of their classic and elegant features made for stunning shots. We strolled and danced through the park and talked about how they met, the house they are looking to buy, Yaniv’s creative business and just good ol‘ fashioned chit chat. It was a great morning, spent in the company of a great couple.

I don’t know what he told her…but he cracked her up pretty good! She tried…but there was no fighting such a burst of laughter!

Thanks guys, for such a fun time! I love how you turned out in your photos and I hope you do too.

As far as fun engagement shoots go, I have yet to top these two! Chris & Lisa are one of those dream couples for photographers. They were up for anything I suggested! Whether it was pretend-going down a slide, climbing up giant-sized rubix cubes, getting muddy in the bushes, or even completely soaked in a fountain! I had a blast photographing them and getting to know their love story. I can’t wait for the wedding! :)

This was them the whole time…all smiles and giggles!

This shot makes me think of Shakespeare… “All the world’s a stage, And all the men and women merely players.”
