Courtney & Brian… I had such a good time with you! I can’t believe your wedding is only two weeks away!! WOO! We are going to have a blast! Thanks for being absolutely AWESOME! Here are a few favorites!
Katherine and Matt!! Ahhh, where do I begin? I feel like the world needs to know you! ha! And what better way to get to know you than through a blog post by yours truly!
When Katherine and I were scheduling a meeting place… I found a convenient starbucks… (which turned out to be not so convenient)… It was in (get this…) a KROGER… GROCERY… STORE! Can you hear it?… “And This is the Premium Leather album with… ‘ CLEAN UP ON AISLE TWELVE!”…..” Ha! What is WRONG with me? Why don’t I investigate these things in advance? Had it been anyone else… I may have been a little embarassed… ha! Who meets their clients in a GROCERY STORE?? Better yet… when did Kroger start housing a Starbucks?..I don’t even like coffee.. why do I meet people at Starbucks? And Why am I asking you? How are you suppose to know if I don’t even know? Who knows! Ha! Anyway… We met around 6:30 I believe… and we did not leave until 10 PM.. as in.. AT NIGHT! And honestly… I tell you… hand to heaven… I could have stayed another 5 hours… We had SUCH a good time…and I left with two friends I felt I had known for much longer than a 4 hour consultation! (My longest record for a wedding consultation to date!) ;) We talked about everything from baseball (Matt was a pro baseball player) to dogs… (we all have dogs and we all love them to pieces!)… to embarrassing stories… to dueling piano bars… The list could go on but we’d be here for 4 hours! And lets be honest… You really would rather I hush up and let you look at pretty pictures. I could not wait until Katherine & Matt’s engagement session just so I could have an excuse to hang out with such awesome people again! I hope these memories captured will last you a lifetime… and several decades from you, you’ll look at these and remember these moments! They are priceless! :) Katherine and Matt will be getting married next January in England! If we all keep our finders crossed reaaaallly tight… maybe you’ll see their fabulous England wedding on the blog in 2012!*wink wink nudge nudge*
In Houston at a place called Discovery Green… There are two big circles that you can sit inside of… and you can whisper…and the person about 500 feet from you can hear you clearly! It’s crazy! But that is how Matt proposed to Katherine… so we wrapped the shoot there… at night! It was perfect!
Happy Birthday Kylee!! I grew up with Adrian… He used to pick on me when I was little… and mess with my animals and now I am photographing his babies!! Whew! Full. Circle!Brandy & Adrian.. you guys have an absolutely beautiful sweet little girl! She is growing up so fast…and I love being able to document these early stages of her life!! In case you missed her newborn and 6 month pictures… You can see them here and here! ;) Can you say… One. Happy. Baby!!! Ha! Here are some favorites!
Melanie & David… What a joy it has been to get to know you (and your sweet families)… It has truly been my pleasure to be a part of your incredible journey…and capture such an unforgettable time of your lives! The adventure is JUST beginning… and I know… for sure… it will be an incredible chapter after chapter…of unbelievable stories… and moments… and love that is ever-growing! Melanie…to you, your mom and dad… your sisters, Michelle and Sharon… Thank you for treating me more like your friends than your photographer… from day one!!
