Christopher & Lindsey's Wedding Day : Texas Safari Ranch, Sugar Land, TX

November 18, 2015  •  Leave a Comment

Love and friendship can come from unexpected places. Such was the case with Chris & Lindsey. Chris & Lindsey met online after Chris moved from Wisconsin to Texas. On their first date they went to the county fair where they accidentally ran into Lindsey's parents and siblings! She swears it was complete coincidence and Chris rose to the occasion and truly impressed her family & Lindsey. From then on they were inseparable.

October 17, 2015 was a gorgeous day celebrating the love and friendship that started that day over 5 years earlier. Family members from all over the country came together to love and support Lindsey & Chris on their wedding day. There were so many unique details that really brought their style and personalities together.

Steely & CeCe: Stylized Portrait Shoot: Spring, TX

September 04, 2015  •  Leave a Comment

Being newer to the Spring/Woodlands area I'm constantly scouting great places to do portrait sessions. Every day I drive past this amazing location with this absolutely incredible oak tree.

I asked my good friends Steely and CeCe if they would be my models in a stylized just for fun couples session; they were on totally on board!

This shoot has everything: a giant oak tree with low branches, tall grass, cold beer, picnic blankets, and an adorable couple who absolutely love each other.

Obviously, I LOVE this shoot and location and I'm happy to add it to my location guide for portrait sessions. Contact me to have your portrait shoot taken at this location :)

Romantic Cozy Indoor Shoot : Develop Retreat : New Waverly, TX

July 22, 2015  •  1 Comment

It is full on summer here in South East Texas. It is so hot that I burned myself on my seatbelt getting into my car the other day! I thought this week is the perfect week to show you the indoor stylized shoot we did at the Develop Retreat for Photographers this past January.

For a full intro to what the Develop Retreat is about read my blog post here. There is another Develop Retreat coming up in September in New Waverly, TX. If you are a photographer this workshop is a life changer; I can not recommend it enough! For more information about the retreat and snagging a coveted spot visit www.developretreat.com

Katie and Devin were the perfect models; their love for each other is so apparent, sweet, and endearing. The talented team of Sunkissed and Made Up did Katie's make up and hair; an effortless bronzed freckled look with side swept waves. Gorgeous! All that was needed were a few cozy blankets, tons of pillows, and two people that love each other.

Let me set the scene for you by transporting you to a cool pre-spring morning...

You wake up naturally, no alarms or early plans on this cool, crisp Saturday morning (this is pre-kids of course). You roll over as your man enters the room with a fresh cup of coffee and he sets it down on the nightstand. You sit up and take a sip. He knows you too well, one sugar and a little cream, just like you like it. He plops down on the bed next to you puts his arm around you and opens up the morning news (on the iPad realistically) You sit there just snuggling and drinking coffee in bed. 

This is the vision that the we sought to capture in this shoot. A romantic, cozy session that highlights those memories that seem mundane at the time and preserve them forever.

What a fun shoot this was! I hope that as you continue during this hot and muggy summer you remember these times in your own relationship. Make time to slow down and enjoy these moments; however perfect or imperfect that looks in this season of your life. 

{very} Warmly, 

Katie
