Alexandra & Stephen // Houston, TX Country Club Wedding

I'm not an outwardly emotional person, and in some ways I envy those who get really shaken by heart-tugging movies (though don't even get me started on certain Pixar films, which make me all kinds of weepy).  While I feign a confidence in thought and reason,  deep down everything I do is fueled and inspired by emotion.  It's one of the many reasons why I am forever drawn to photographing relationship stories, and approaching those worlds through the eyes of honest, heartfelt journalism.   Every weddings has its own story, full of moments that a real treat to find...but once in a while I'll meet a couple like Alexandra and Stephen who spoil ...

Alexandra & Stephen // Houston, TX Country Club Wedding

I somehow just consistently get to work with amazing people, and I'm quite thankful that train hasn't slowed. But Candice (and her husband Daniel) has darn neared messed up the whole system by being so doggone great that I've almost felt spoiled.  If you've seen any of my other recent posts, you've likely read a few of the many reasons why she's amazing and they're just the very best kind of people.  Being able to document the last year with them has truly been an honor, and thanks to their fun loving attitudes and badass sidekick pup, a total blast in the process.  Much love and many thanks to Candice for being such a killer sport through her ...

Candice & Daniel // Houston, TX Engagement Session

Alexandra & Stephen // Houston, TX Country Club Wedding

I consider it such a privilege to meet new couples and document their relationships, learning bits and pieces about them and their stories along the way.  Candice and Daniel are a perfect example, though I must admit that they cheated a bit by bringing way too much to the table.  First off, Daniel has a top notch name, can't argue with that.  Second, they have a ballin dog named Bo and brought him to their engagement session, with a NO HOLDS BARRED policy on me being able to pet him.  Which I did, incessantly.  Third, Candice knows I have long/rebellious/unwiedly hair and bought me a bottle of her favorite product to try, and it basically changed my life. ...

Alexandra & Stephen // Houston, TX Country Club Wedding

Okay, so here's the deal.  I'm kind of a weird dude, and probably far too rebellious for my own good, at least when it comes to maintaining clean-cut seriousness in the wedding world.  I'm not an expert on current wedding trends, I barely know what forks are for what in a multi course meal, and most of my photographic inspiration comes from outside of the industry entirely, whether it's fashion or adventure travel and photojournalism from 50 years ago.  The core of everything I do is a hope to understand people and share their stories in a genuine way, not simply take 'pretty wedding photos'.  In some ways I think that may hurt me in the ...

Deanna & Nicholas // Western Colorado Destination Wedding

Alexandra & Stephen // Houston, TX Country Club Wedding

Goodness gracious, have I been excited to share this wedding.  You may have picked up on it by now if you've read any of my other posts, but gosh do I love documenting life.  It's the vanishing moments, the slow stories, the beauty of people and the world that surrounds them that keep me coming back to capture tiny pieces of an infinite subject.  I've been blessed to work with consistently awesome couples over the past 8 years, but these two stepped it up a notch - Deanna and Nicholas' wedding (and shoot, even they themselves) spoiled me something fierce.  Nicholas is the kind of guy that makes anyone feel always welcomed, like you've been great friends for years by the ...
