I love couples photography sessions. I smile from the time we start the session, through the editing process all the way to the time I post the pictures in my client’s proofing gallery. I don’t think I’ve laughed as hard or as much as I did at Jason and Kendra’s engagement session last week. They are an incredible couple with a great story of how they met. We spent around three hours together for their session and the joy and love they had for each other just oozed off of them the entire time. They were total troopers too, sunrise session, braving fields with giant mosquitoes, riding their tandem bike in the grass, hanging out with us until Treat cupcakes opened, seriously, they’re awesome. Prepare yourself for a lot of images…
They also allowed me to check an item off my photographer bucket list, engagement session with a tandem bike (aka bicycle built for two). Next stop, shoot a wedding in a vineyard (here’s to dreams right?).
I’m like a kid in a candy shop when I pick out flowers for my photo sessions. It is quite possible that sunflowers are my favorite, they photograph so beautifully and they’re so happy. Bonus, they get to brighten up my house after the session.
When I met up with Jason and Kendra at Starbucks, Kendra told me that her mom had asked if she was going to do “the photo”. It turns out both her parents and brother have the same photo of them sitting on a fallen tree. I told her I’d do my best to make it happen. It turned out that just behind where we set up our little picnic, two trees had fallen (thank you Houston drought).
Kendra, I highly considered stealing your boots.
This is one of my favorite photos from the session.
After our woods excursion we headed over to Treat! cupcakes in Vintage Park. Many thanks to them for letting us take over their adorable shop for a moment to take some photos! (and for making delicious cupcakes)
After cupcakes we took just a few more photos which ended up being my absolute favorites. Remember how I mentioned the oozing of love, yeah these photos are all about it.
And that’s Jason and Kendra. Thank you both for allowing me to be a part of your lives, even if it was just for a few hours. You’re both wonderful!
OH, and if you’re interested you can view their fusion video on our Facebook page!
SO as most of you know my background is in advertising and pr as well as fine art. Basically I’m a hodge podge of creative experience and interests. So when a company does something really cool with say a trade show booth or say…the launch of a new product I have to high five them. So to Miller’s I give a high five, even though you are not my printing company your booth design, phone charging station and Luxe lounge made my design radars tingle.
So you pass a bouncer and go up a large escalator. To your left is this delightful all white desert table. When prices and quality of food in the convention makes you want to just burn money, some decent sugary snacks (free ones I might add) are a welcomed addition to the experience. Miller’s also had an extensive list of speakers showcasing in their Luxe Lounge.
There was also a wall with little sticky notes for photographers to share what inspires them. I loved this!
After all that sugary goodness a bathroom break was necessary. In the stall was the above.
So what was the big release from Miller’s? It was the talk of the show and also a big release for my printer of choice White House. Meet die cut cards! GASP! Cheer! Exclaim! To put it lightly, I’m pumped. Annnnnnndddddd (drum roll) meet Diliberto Photo & Design’s newest new product! Here are 5 samples of the 50 new shapes available. I want an excuse to use the one on the top left, its my favorite, I’m thinking wedding invitation maybe? So my friends, get thinking, lets do party invitations, shower invitations, new address cards, personal stationary, christmas cards, thank you cards…with a photo or without we can design something awesome and completely personalized! Can you tell I’m excited?
59 Diner, Photo Booths, Peep-Toe Flats, and diamonds they all relate in my book. This was the day Bill proposed to me, at 59 Diner, in a photo booth, while I was wearing my favorite black peep-toe flats, with a big diamond. I have a romantic love of photo booths so it was only fitting that he proposed there. We also had a photo booth at our wedding, which I wrote about in this earlier post. This was one of my most favorite days. It was Bill’s first time in Houston and I spent the day taking him to all of my favorite places: the Museum of Fine Art, Nundini Italian Imports, The Book Stop on Alabama…and later that night, after the proposal we went to an Astros game. It was a perfect day.
I had the honor of photographing Sarah and Jacob’s wedding last week. Sarah was Jacob’s barista at Starbucks. I love photographing friends’ weddings, its so much fun. They’re comfortable with you, and you know little things about them that make the pictures oh so special. I feel like I should really hang out more with all my brides and grooms prior to their wedding.
Congrats Sarah & Jacob!
To my two whole loyal readers. I appologize for not updating AT ALL last week. Bill and I moved into our new house and just got internet. =)
I have so much to update with, tons of photos. But for now I did an engagement shoot of some friends this weekend and thought that might tide you over until I can post about the week’s events, including pictures of the new house.
