Tiffany and Derek are planning their wedding at the family ranch in Mathis Texas. We decided the ranch would be the perfect location to take engagement photos! We chose the day and of course it rained for three days straight before hand. We went ahead and braved the mud with everyone wearing huge boots. The weather was beautiful and the session was fun despite the mud (and I kept my equipment clean!)

Tabatha and David chose The Lodge at Bridal Veil Falls in Spring Branch for their outdoor wedding ceremony. The venue overlooks the water and has some beautiful waterfalls that are behind the ceremony site. The day was windy and cool for the wedding and that kept everyone comfortable. We took amazing photos of the couple and the wedding party standing on the rocks in the middle of the water! At the reception the couple enjoyed great BBQ, fun music and a photo booth. We were able to sneak outside for a few night time portraits; they are some of my favorite of the entire collection. At the end of the night the couple had a sparkler exit and officially started their next chapter together as husband and wife!

Portland Girls!

This is one of my favorite engagement sessions and it was taken in downtown Corpus Christi. Suzy and Sara are getting married in Portland, Oregon but when they flew down to Texas to visit family they decided to do a mini-engagement session. We wandered around Heritage Park, the Harbor Bridge and the water park down on the bay. It was a really nice time for me to get to know them as a couple and for them to get to know me as their wedding photographer. I’ve been friends with Suzanna longer than anyone else and she is one of my favorite people in the whole world – despite how different we are! I’m excited to be in Portland today to photograph their wedding and celebrate with friends and family.

Take a look at these photos. Can you tell they were taken in Corpus Christi? Megan was lucky enough to find a friend that had some property with a nice barn and lots of greenery and that is exactly what she wanted for her Corpus bridal session. We were still in the city but if feels like we drove out to the country. The day was hot and humid and we had mosquitoes everywhere but that did not stop us from getting some killer bridal portraits. I’m finishing up their wedding so be on the look out for those photos coming up soon!
