Sara & Matt

A little back story before we get into this engagement session. Matt and I met at Atomic Crossfit a while ago. Back before I was doing photography full time. He made the workouts better and funnier just because we were basically crazy together. Sadly I moved away from Atomic when I moved jobs. So when I get the email from Matt {one the most epic emails ever, by the way!} that they wanted me for their wedding, well you know I was there with bells on!

The Engagement Session

They wanted an timeless, romantic feel to their images. With a bit of a Mad Men feel, which Sara nailed with the dresses she wore. And those shoes! #shoegoals

Blogger Photographer

One of the cool things I fell into has been photographing Houston-based bloggers. The majority have been lifestyle and fashion, but there are also fitness, wellness and travel bloggers too. In fact the blogging community in Houston is healthy and amazing! I got into it because a loyal client of mine, Sarah, whom you should all be well acquainted with, started her own fashion blog. I love these sessions because they are light and fun, and I get to ogle their cool accessories. Also, as a Canadian, I am still finding new places around Houston I never knew existed! These sessions help me explore more of Houston, with my camera 🙂

Gracefully Sassy

Sarah, aka Gracefully Sassy, is this truly sweet, good-heart woman who has a passion for cute quirky styles. She loves peppering her outfits with the best accessories, like a pizza or cactus purse! Sarah also loves pops of color and always tries to incorporate budget-friendly pieces into the mix. She has been at this for just over a year, and her blog and advice is so strong, you would have no idea she is new to all this!

My favorite outfits of hers always include a bright pop of color or something unexpected. We love doing our photos at funky walls or in Highland Village, as there is so much to work with there plus a Kate Spade store! Also, there is a Sprinkles Cupcakes there and I have been known to buy one or two cupcakes.

She is gearing up for a fun summer of watermelon, cactus themes with bright colors and maybe fireworks thrown in, who knows?? Behind the scenes Sarah is happily married and has an adorable pup who has stolen their hearts. To see more of her go to her Instagram and Facebook page!

Puppy + Owner = True Love

You know that going into doing a puppy styled engagement session that there would still be a theme to it. I mean yes, puppies on their own are cute AF, but as the ever creative person that I am, a little theme had to be thrown in there. The inspiration behind this styled session was to show that you don’t need a romantic partner in your life, that the love you and your dog have is more than enough.

Soulmate Has Four Legs

Let this be your inspiration to do pictures with your puppy! It doesn’t have to be cutesy and off-the-cuff! It can be a gorgeous sparkly skirt, a themed top and a matching puppy collar! In this set we included some gorgeous calligraphy signs and made it feel elegant and, well, adorable!! Look how the puppy Roxy basically grins in almost all the pictures? Too cute!!Puppy styled engagement sessionsoulmate has four legs

Cake Toppers Rule!

If you read my last post about wedding cakes, you will note I love a slightly more traditional cake.This leaves plenty of room to add personality to the top of the cake–which will please not only you, but also grandma Rose and your mom. Sure they might not look at the topper and think “so elegant!”, they will be in awe of the cake for that emotion! Nah, the cake topper is your chance to shine. The following are some ideas on how to make your cake topper go from traditional to filled with personality!

Pets? Pets!

A lot of couples I know have pets and want to incorporate them into their wedding. I mean they are your first kids, right? You spend quality time cuddling on the couch, doing snapchat with them, among other things. Plus, when you incorporate your dog or cat into your cake topper, it honestly goes up a full notch!! My personal favorite are the silhouette ones, but they are all cute.

Mmmmm Wedding Cakes

I am surprised it took this long for me to write about my favorite wedding cakes considering I am such a foodie. But who cares! This post is intended to inspire you and make you hungry at the same time! I want you to look at these cakes and feel the potential for your wedding. To see how personality has been infused in the simplest of ways. Sometimes it is the addition of flowers, metallic paint or both! You can also be over the top, and that is honestly awesome!!

Flowers

One of the simplest of ways to make me fall in love with your wedding cake, as a wedding photographer, is to incorporate flowers to it. Seriously, a white or cream buttercream cake with flowers? Gorgeous. Simple. Stunning. Plus, it smells awesome and makes me want to eat it!! The flowers can be on the top, cascading down the cake, I am not picky. The flowers look great doing it all!
