New York City Engagement: Kaela and Joe

This engagement session is very close to my heart! You see Kaela and I are roommates and all though I am 10 years older then her we get along super well. She is so grown up and mature for her young age. She moved to the city to go to cosmetology school and while volunteering with her church after Hurricane Sandy devastated New York City she met a boy. Not just any boy, THE boy!

I must say that seeing them interact and how caring they are for one another makes me have butterflies in my stomach! True, young love…. *sigh*

This session was actually my idea. I wanted to take advantage of the fall foliage and wanted to get some photos of an adorable couple! I ran the idea by Kaela and she asked Joe and before we knew it we had a date planned. ┬áIt was a beautiful Sunday morning but just as we were getting ready to start our session in Central Park the rain came…so we made a dash for lower Manhattan and found ourselves in Washington Square Park. Thankfully the rain stopped and we were able to shoot some beautiful photos.

Here is how the session started:

And before I knew it, Joe was on one knee and he caught Kaela and myself by surprise. I was just as nervous as her I think.

After just about a year of dating, Kaela and Joe got engaged in the city where they fell in love!

Kaela-you are going to be the most stunning bride!

Afterwards we celebrated with crepes back at the apartment while Kaela and Joe face timed their families to tell them about the engagement! Couldn’t be happier for my roomie!

New York City Engagement: Anna and Jean Carlos

In early November, during the last days of the fall foliage, I got lucky to capture Anna and Jean Carlos’s love. We started on the Upper West Side and then wandered into Central Park. It was the perfect day and the sun was shinning so beautifully.

Here are some of my favorites!


Houston Engagement Photography: Melissa and Daniel

This post is long over due! Melissa and Daniel saw their photos and absolutely loved them which I was all giddy about too. You see Melissa and I met in college in one of our many journalism classes and since then we’ve kept up with each other mostly by the most popular social network called Facebook. So as my business grew and I posted photos on Facebook so did my “fan base” or as an email from a potential client said…stalkers.:)

Photography is an important part of Melissa and Daniel’s wedding, they understand the quality of work they will receive and that ultimately their wedding photos will be something they treasure for years to come.

We did their engagement session around the Heights area in Houston and it was definitely my signature of laid back portraits with some fierceness. They sure did know how to “pose”.

Can’t wait for your wedding in May!

Look at those booties…definitely my kind of girl!

Melissa says she doesn’t like to smile, but Daniel can make her smile with a drop of a hat.

I love how the yellow just pops!

Can’t wait to see these two in wedding attire! Gorgeous!

See, all smiles!

They can do intimate as well.

And just the way he looks at her says love!
