I keep meeting awesome couples who are "completely living the dream" according to my book, and Jon and Jabel are definitely one of those couples. They live within a short bike ride of downtown Houston (I'm talking short...it's right there!) and completely enjoy the perks of city-living; the art and culture, the amazing eateries, and just being close to EVERYTHING. They are 2 fashion driven creatives who thrive on great art, great food, and great love. And oh my gosh I love them. L-O-V-E puffy heart love them :)
Entries in Houston engagement photographer (16)
Before we started Elyana and Troy's engagement session, we met up for frozen yogurt first, which, if you ask me, is a cheery way to start any session :) I love these sessions so much because it gives me a chance to get to know my couples on a personal level and interact with them face to face before the wedding, rather than just phone and email. It just makes the wedding day seem like old friends reunitiing! Total win :)
I'm going to go ahead and say it. Thank goodness Bethany and Rene are both snake people! Not even 2 minutes into their session did they find a snake in the path I had them walking down. I didn't know what was happening at first, but Rene was watching something and then followed it into the bushes. They both had stopped with their romantic walk and proceeded to check out the snake. Naturally, I freaked out from a good distance of 50 feet (and that distance kept growing and growing!). It turned out to be a copperhead, and I'd guess it to be about 3 feet in length? I know I made a fool, but snakes are one of the things in life I'm most fearful of. I can't trust those slithery bodies and their beady little eyes. I mean, I have nightmares with snakes in them! Joel reassured me that snakes are more afraid of us, but I don't know about that...I think it's a close call. Needless to say, I won't be visiting this park for a while.
Annie and Nolen are the perfect example of "those who play together, stay together." You'll see exactly what I mean as you scroll through their session :) We met up in the morning and had to quickly go to our plan B for the session, thanks to unavoidable road construction blocking our route to the park! After that minor hiccup, we strolled through the museum disctrict and laughed more than I thought possible so early in the morning :P
