Shot another fantastic wedding with Arol at AJH Photography this past weekend. The celebration took place at the gorgeous Plantation House in Pflugerville. I was really blown away by this venue. The attention to detail inside and out was absolutely amazing. The folks that run it are some great people! Easily one of the best venues that I have shot at. Add a great looking couple who, are utterly in love with each other, to that equation as well as one of the more stunning dresses I’ve seen and you’ve got a wedding that is really easy to photograph! Made me forget that it was 95 degrees out that day, even if more a moment. Hope you enjoy the pics!

Writing to report about another great experience from Canvas On Demand, my favorite vendor to order gallery wraps from! Not only do they do a supreme job, but they have some of the best customer service I have ever experienced. There’s no waiting on hold for eternity. They reply to your emails with lightning speed. And the pump out some really nice products. I could not be happier. Well, ok…I might be happier if I was at the beach, sipping a margarita. Maybe!

Veronica + Dennis | Wedding

Hey, Everyone! I shot a wedding last week in Houston for another local Photographer, Ben, of Godkin Photo. It’s really awesome to be able to work with other Photographers in the area. I think it’s important that we do that. By doing so, everyone benefits from learning off of one another. Needless to say that Ben is a great guy to work with. He has worked with this family in the past, so they were ultra nice and very welcoming to us both. The couple and the family were SO easy to work with. The wedding took place in yet another stunning Catholic church, St. Annes and the reception was very cozy and intimate. Here are some of my favorites from the day. Hope you enjoy!

Liza + Tim | Wedding :: New Orleans

Not having been to New Orleans as an adult, it’s suffice to say that I jumped on this opportunity without even blinking. Liza and Tim had just finished college and decided to moved back to Tim’s home town – The Big Easy. Young, but traditional, this wedding was both beautiful and fun! The ceremony and reception both took place at the Audubon Nature Center Golf Clubhouse. With Liza having been a sorority [girl] and Tim a fraternity [boy], this was no small wedding. There were 11 bride’s maids and 10 groom’s men. ELEVEN! Huge bridal party! And speaking of party….did these folks know how to! Probably one of the most fun receptions I’ve witnessed in a while. I hope you enjoy the pictures! As always, thanks for stopping by 🙂

Streetness: Part II

This lovely weather is just too conducive for this type of shooting that I could not resist the urge to hit the streets again. This time, though, it didn’t start off as smoothly as last week. You’ll see what I mean with the first image. But I think I’ve been down there enough with my camera, laying down in suspicious and awkward positions on the sidewalks and streets, that the folks are getting used to me. They have grown numb to my intentions. In general, people are inherently nice….even if they don’t have a job or a home. I’m very fortunate to be allowed the opportunity to document a small portion of their lives. Like my last street posting, I was only armed with my camera and one single 35mm lens. I like to shoot wide and get close to my subjects, while incorporating the surroundings at the same time. I hope you enjoy this series!

Been a while since someone gave me the bird!

These gals were pretty cool. I asked if I could take their picture and they sorta hesitated but agreed to. I went inside the shop and got some coffee, when I came out, they ended up inviting me to sit down with them – interesting conversations ensued! Really nice and eclectic gals. I love the people in this town.

Is it just me, or is bowling making a come back?? I think this is the 3rd time I’ve bowled in the last year. I like sports where you can enjoy a beer or two. But last night, the real PRO was Sophie. Check out her from!

Ahhh street photography…….how I love thee. There’s just something so organic about it. So raw. So visceral. It’s just me trying to show you what I see, how I see them and the things I notice as I walk the streets. It’s been a while since I’ve shot some candid street shots. In fact, it’s been too long. But it’s March now and the Spring-like weather is here! Even if it only lasts for 3 weeks before the stifling heat smothers us like a thick, dense wool blanket. I was lucky today. Everyone seemed in good spirits. I never once got yelled at for taking someone’s picture. The Greenpeace canvassers were even singing to me. What nice people they were! I thoroughly enjoyed myself and I hope it shows in the images. As always, thank you for taking the time!

I busted someone else doing a bit of street photography! And in turn, I captured myself in the reflection. I didn’t realize this till I uploaded the images. True story!
