Engagement sessions this time of year are a bit of a toss up in terms of the weather. And on this particular day Ashley, Zack and I had to decide if we should push on with the cloudy forecast or go for it. I’m so glad they decided to take the chance. We spent that magic hour at some of my favorite little spots in Hermann Park and captured the essence of their personalities. Ashley has this sweet and quiet quality about her, so loving and gentle. Zack is her perfect compliment with a combined sense of quiet fortitude and lighthearted sense of humor. I can see why these two embrace the way they do. When I look at couples through my lens I feel a gift being bestowed upon me. And I’m so grateful they opened up to me that day. I’m looking forward to seeing them again on wedding day. Here are a few of my favorite photographs from our engagement session:

On a side note, this magnificent oak tree fell to its end and rejoined the Earth just one week after our session. I felt it draw me in that day almost as if the Universe was asking for a record to be made. And isn’t that the purpose of it all: to find the beauty, the grace, marvel at life, share in that miracle, and make records of what we are so fortunate to experience. I’m so happy I got to capture it’s beauty in a photograph with such a sweet couple.

Ashley & Zack, thank you for working with me to create these images. My wish is that these will always spark the memory of what you feel for each other, and that the roots of that love grow deep to anchor your journey through life together in an unbreakable bond.

 

 

Who knew that a wedding shot captured over a year ago would today be making very quick rounds over the world-wide web. Thanks to sites like Pinterest and 9Gag, as of yesterday I have gained new insight into the term “going viral.”
 
So what’s up with this picture?
 
Grom Portrait Groomsmen Portrait: A Photo That Went Viral

 

Alotta people seem to be wondering what’s going on here. As tempting as it is to leave it open to interpretation, I’ll oblige.
 
Girls, you know.
 

How many times have you been showing off that ring? Well…for the boys things go a little differently.
 
Picture the groom waiting for his pals to come  do the portrait shot post-ceremony. Groom stops to reflect on what just happened and looks down at his shiny-new wedding ring. Enter groomsmen who catch him in the act of reflection. In true guy fashion the joshing begins. Click! There goes my shutter.
 
Yessiree bob, these guys are genuinely this silly and I was absofreakinlutely lucky to catch all the goings-on that day. From the lost sock at the altar during the ceremony (forreals), to the guys poking fun at a very proud Mr. Groom looking at his ring. Here’s to all the whimsy and fun of wedding day. All days should be this happy.
 
Happy Valentine’s Everybody!

 

Just a very quick sneak at a great E-Session I had with the lovely Dee and the oh-so-fun Travis. These guys were complete naturals! More to come very soon!!

0051 Kennedy Bakery • Band Photo Shoot

Photo shoots are fun. Shooting in a nineteenth century, haunted, old pub with the band Kennedy Bakery – MUCH more fun. That’s them above, having a good ol’ time as they pretend to be bartenders at what used to be the actual Kennedy Bakery in Downtown Houston.  The place is rich in history, creaky floorboards and that creepy feeling that sneaks upon the back of your neck. Alas, there were no ghosts there on this particular evening. But it didn’t stop us from having fun.

Kennedy Bakery is composed of Erin, James, Jenny, Justine, and Rachelle. They’ll be playing next at Walter’s on Washington on October 24th.  You can also catch them on their site: www.kennedybakery.com

Here are some photos from their shoot!

Dear Kimmers,

These past fours years have been nothing short of a big ride! Who would have thought that a stint in crazy town would have bloomed into one amazing friendship! We’ve said it many times, but I can’t help but continue to marvel at the great things this beautiful life has for us if we just choose to see them. Your friendship is truly one of those fantastic blessings. And I’d do crazy town all over again just for that.

And now that you embark on this fantastic journey, I am so very proud of what you’ve done and cannot wait to see what comes next! Because I know in my heart that you are on to some ridiculously fabulous things.

Thank you for your friendship, for your loving and adventurous spirit that keeps me inspired and searching to enrich the colors in my own life. Thank you for being my cohort in “getting lost on purpose” and injecting me with courage and a zeal to keep pushing to reach everything I want in life. You are one, beautiful human being and I love you so much.

The west coast better get ready! Happy travels, my friend!
