Holly + Preston // Houston, TX Anniversary

This was a special session for me since I've known these two for a long time. Preston and I go all the way back to elementary. Holly called me a few weeks ago to surprise Preston with a photoshoot before their dinner date at Peli Peli in Vintage Park. It was their anniversary and she thought it would be a great idea since they haven't had photos taken in a long time.

When I arrived at Vintage Park, Preston and Holly were just pulling up. Preston saw me but he still had no idea and thought that it was just coincidence that I was there for a session. Little did he know this was his photo session. When he found out, he had the biggest smile on his face and just hugged Holly. 

We then just walked around the shopping center to take photos. I had a blast and I hope they felt the same. This is definitely proof that you can use any location to your advantage even a shopping center that no one would think about shooting in.

Angie + Elkin // Brooklyn, NY Anniversary

This was Denisse and I’s first trip out of Texas. We are generally homebodies who just travel back and forth from Houston, San Antonio and Austin. The purpose of the trip was to take our engagement photos in New York which is where our wedding photographer is from. As you may know, Denisse and I are legally married but we have not had a ceremony so we are doing everything the same way an engaged couple would.

During our trip, I put out an ad for a free engagement session in New York. I got a lot of great applicant but it came down to one so I chose a local wedding photographer. Elkin and his wife Angie are two super awesome people that we automatically clicked with. They made the process super easy and showed us how beautiful Brooklyn was. 

The overall results were some beautiful photos of the two of them just being who they are. I can’t wait to go back but in the mean time at least I have cool photos of two super awesome people.
