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
