Tessa + Stephen | Downtown Houston Engagement Photography

Tessa and Stephen were a dream to photograph! They are the type of couple that you just can't help but want to be friends with! They are easy-going, fun, and their laughs are contagious. Especially Stephen's! He kept giggling every time I had him and Tessa do a certain pose and then we were all laughing. By the end of the session he wouldn't stop kissing her! :) This was their first time to take photos together and they were naturals! 

Even though it was SUPER windy and I'm sure we looked like crazy people running around downtown Houston, we enjoyed our session! Their outfits were perfect, their laughter was genuine, and I'm lucky to have the opportunity to be a part of their new chapter.

Here are some favorites from their engagement session! Enjoy! XOXO

Justin + Claudia's Intimate Backyard Wedding

Last Tuesday (10/18) I got a call about photographing a small wedding that Friday (10/21). Yep... Claudia and Justin pulled off a wedding in only a few days, and it was beautiful! They even mentioned that they might write a book about it all. ;) They got married in Pasadena and had their reception with family and friends at Claudia's brother's house in Summerwood, Houston. 

Claudia's family flew in from all around the world to see their sister/daughter marry the love of her life. I think Mrs. Bonnie (Justin's Mom) said it best, "Families were brought together from Germany, Venezuela and Columbia and at times there was a language barrier, but the one language we all knew and could understand was the love that these two have for one another." There was a lot of joy, hugs, and happy tears and I'm so thankful I was available to capture those moments.

Before I met the happy couple, I spoke to Justin on the phone to get to know him a little better and find out more about Claudia. He told me that he doesn't really like his picture to be taken and  that he turns red, but he'd make sacrifices for his bride. O. M. G. Justin and Claudia were a dream to work with!! After we were done taking the bride and groom portraits I was like Justin... really?? haha! They were both naturals and just head over heels in love. Here are some favorites of mine from their day. Enjoy! XOXO
