Houston Portrait Photographer – Mini Session Time!!

These mini-sessions were so much fun! Getting to work with people as sweet at these gals is definitely one of the biggest perks of the business!

The first session was scheduled by the mama of these two little ladies, Katie. She wanted some updated images of her beautiful not-so-little-girls, Sydney June and Mia. She decided to dress the girls in blue and white with leather fringed boots. Mia (big sis) was an absolute natural in front of the camera. Besides a small fear of snakes we discovered, she had an awesome time getting some great shots in the park. Little bit, Sydney June, reminded me a lot of myself when I was her age. Precocious and strong-willed. As soon as we were done posing, that was it. She did do an awesome job of chasing her sister around though, which led to some pretty adorable giggles 🙂

Lindsey is in the process of becoming a yoga-instructor. A great client to have! She’s wanting to display some of these images in her new studio, and I was more than happy to help. We stuck with dark naturals when styling, the brightest colors coming from her yoga wheel. Lindsey is one of those naturally gorgeous people. Her inner confidence shined bright as a stared at her natural beauty through my lens. We found an adorably quiet and serene nook with bountiful natural lighting. Perfect for me to capture some truly stunning shots of a few of her poses. Her balance and poise utterly amazed me.

The Houston Bridal Extravaganza happened over the weekend. According to its site over 5,000 brides attended to get help planning their wedding. Hundreds of vendors were there to get seen by brides they normally wouldn’t have access to, and although the space is well-organized, it is still overwhelming. So if you went over the weekend, feel free to add to my survival list!

Have a Plan

Going into an extravaganza where there are 400 vendors vying for your attention requires planning. Get with your significant other and know what you need for your wedding. Make a list of what it is you are struggling to find and what you both want from the vendor. If you go in saying “I need a venue”, but you don’t know what kind of venue, where you want it to be, you will be overwhelmed. There are a ton of choices! Everything from elegant and intimate {The Gallery is a great example for this one}, to out in the country {White Oaks or 2k Reserve come to mind}. There are a lot in-between and they all have beautiful displays.

Same thing with photography and videographers–you will find there are a ton, with various styles. So before you go, sit down together and look at wedding images and decide what style you like. Do you like dark and moody {Endless Exposures is a great example}? Light and airy {Christine Gosch is great at this}? Bright and colorful {Stacy Anderson Photography rocks at that}? Or do you want someone who has more of a feel to their images–like soft and romantic or documentary-style and less posed. Thus, having a plan will help you eliminate vendors and help you stay on track.

Why Heaven on Earth

Heaven on Earth is up next on venues I photographed at in 2016. This venue reminds me of Kendall Plantation, specifically the reception area. You can see the magic of that wedding here.

Getting Ready

Heaven on Earth is this huge home that has two separate bedroom areas for both the bride and the groom to get ready in. The bridal area has an ornate bed, which is perfect to showcase the dress for pictures. It also has many different ways in and out of it, so it gives the photographer the ability to be a fly on the wall if they choose, while the bride is getting in her dress.

Houston Wedding Photographer – Gamez Wedding

I couldn’t help but fall in love with this couple as soon as I heard their adorable story. The now newlyweds met through their mutual friend at a UFC viewing party. Their love story began while Stacey finished school. The age-old phrase must be true– distance really does make the heart grow fonder, which I know from personal experience with my husband! Thus, when she moved back to the area, their love blossomed. On their 5-year anniversary, in front of the Houston skyline (the same spot where Jorge told Stacey he loved her for the first time) he popped the question.

The Wedding

The ceremony was held at the Prince of Peace church, a gorgeous Catholic church in North Houston. The pastor during the ceremony made the traditional funny and personalized.  The setting matched the couple’s colors, royal blue and silver, to the breathtaking stained glass they were married under. La Tranquilla Ranch, which is a few miles down the road, is where the reception was held. A mariachi band serenaded the guests throughout the night– what a fun surprise for everyone! My favorite detail from the reception had to be the candy bar, but really, is that a surprise? They had such a variety of tasty treats to suit every kind of sweet tooth. As the night wound to an end, the couple made their grand exit under an arch of sparklers. A perfect ending to a perfect day.

I loved the touches that represented the couple, from the groom’s cake, to the fireman hats. The shirts the women wore before getting into their dresses. The sparkly Keds Stacey wore after the ceremony. These two really do make a genuinely amazing couple. Not only that, but the people they chose to surround themselves on this sacred day in their lives tells so much about them. Thank you for letting me into your lives and granting me the honor of getting to know the two of you better.

Fall Mini Sessions Part 2!

Part two of my fall mini sessions continues with two fun families! Same gorgeous location: Christina V Adair Park. Families of four is this post’s theme.

The Ferrara’s

Big grins greeted me, as I turned to their car. The light of the day was quickly dying, but instead of being stressed, Lisa, Jason and their twin daughters took it as a challenge. Having photographed this family last year for Christmas, we were already comfortable together. This lead naturally to us doing a few poses and then getting silly. The smiles were all natural, the love tangible.
