Jill and James did things just a little bit different….they scheduled their engagement session to take place after their wedding instead of before, as is customary. It gave them time to wait for cooler weather and to pick out great outfits. They also had practice from their portrait session in Galveston after their wedding so they were much more knowledgeable about what to expect at the engagement session. We enjoyed a relaxed evening walking around and letting them be sweet to each other and voila! A great engagement session!
Ahhhh newborns…..they’re so sweet and cute. And I just want to pinch their cheeks and stroke their heads. As I’ve said before, newborns are unpredictable. We may have a plan for the portrait session but it may not go as planned. In fact, it almost never does. If they want to stay awake we go with it and change directions. This little lady eventually slept for us and gave us some sweet portraits at the end. Of course I loved that mom wanted to do some natural shots with her sweet little baby. Love it!
Sometimes I work with new clients and I enjoy getting to meet new people. And sometimes I’m forunate to work with friends I know from other aspects of life. I know this dad from my ballroom dance activities and it’s great to be a part of their personal life with sweet little girl.
It’s a photographers dream to be given extra time on a wedding day just for portraits! Regina and Simon and their wedding party met us at the Magnolia Hotel to start a few indoor shots, and then we headed over to Kim Son to finish off with some outdoor portraits. I was beyond thankful for one of the most beautiful days of the year!
Time to party! I bet people are still talking about Regina and Simon’s wedding reception all the craziness that happened. There were fun and crazy games they had to play in order to receive their wedding envelopes, champagne bottles popping, a Gangnam Style dance-a-thon, and some other just plain crazy antics. So much fun!
I have to thank Monique for her allll her help that day!
I had long been looking forward to Regina and Simon’s wedding because I couldn’t wait to see them have fun at the reception with their friends and family. They started off getting ready at the Magnolia Hotel with all the bridesmaids and groomsmen. Everyone then headed over to the Co-Cathedral Church in downtown Houston. It was a beautiful ceremony with fun moments and tears.
