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!

unplugged wedding ideasWhy an unplugged wedding?

Imagine this, you are walking down the aisle {or are standing at the front of the aisle} and you cannot see your fiancee. With all your guests standing as you walk down the aisle, that is expected. What isn’t expected? Uncle Bob* has an iPad and is taking pictures of you, so you can’t see your betrothed, but you do see them straining to see you. Then you notice one of your close friends not looking at you, but at their cell phone, as you walk down the aisle. All in all it wasn’t the moment you thought it would be–people seemed more interested in taking pictures than being present in the moment with you.

I get this concern a lot as a photographer–how do I get my family and friends to understand I want to have them not breaking out their cameras and cell phones during the ceremony? Let’s be honest, posting a sign or making an announcement on their own doesn’t necessarily work. So what can you truly do? View full post »

Oh Bougainvilleas

As I walked into this venue I was charmed. The Bougainvilleas is located a little west of downtown Houston, on Westheimer. The outside is adorned with flowers, and although it isn’t on a huge patch land, it is no less impressive. Seriously, all the images from photographing there are gorgeous.

Bridal/Groom Area

The area for the women is nice and large, with ample seating. A huge mirror adorns the right side of the room. It made some for great shots of the bride getting ready, her ladies and mom loving on her, and easy candids. I love where the flowers were placed in these pictures, it added a feminine touch to these getting ready pictures.
