Whewww boy. This wedding was a doozy, in the very best of ways:  it was full of incredibly sweet and loving people, at a beautiful venue, with excellent vendors.  But also you guys, it had a PAD THAI STATION.  Plus entire booths for espresso, ice cream, and donuts.  So basically it was a fairytale.  Needless to say it's good that I wasn't a guest, or else I probably would have gained 20lbs and become 'that guy' to all of the catering staff.  

But even after all of the food and festivities and decor and dancing, these two have (and are) something special.  It seems like no one is ever a stranger to them (animals included), they have top notch taste in friends, and above all they love others fully and openly.  Plus they're also just really good at having fun, and the entirety of the wedding day just overflowed with that happiness.  They're easily some of the most genuine and kind people I've ever worked with, and to be welcomed into their story to document this chapter has been beyond humbling.  

As always I've gathered waaay too many highlight images here, though in my defense everything I've ever done with these guys has been a highlight reel (seriously, look at these ridiculously amazing sessions):

A huge hug and hearty congratulations Candice and Daniel!  Y'all are rockstars in my book :)

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.  They're big fans of adventure and new experiences and goofiness and all sorts of other things I'm partial to, but above all they love and support each other.  Their story is an amazing and inspiring one, and as fun as it's been to goof off with them, I'm most excited (and humbled) to be a part of the documenting this piece of their journey.  So without further ado, here are a few peeks into our exploration of Brazos Bend State Park, an old date spot of theirs and a locale full of interesting surprises :)

I'm so thankful for old friends and new families.    

I'm also humbled - humbled that I get welcomed into their lives, that I'm given the privilege of documenting them at their most dolled up, most casual, most goofy, most intimate, most real.  

Jessica and Lane are two truly special people, and I'm not just throwing those words out because it seems nice to put on a blog post. Lane is the sweetest guy you'll ever meet and well on his way to becoming a rockstar doctor, and Jessica is a talented actress and all-around fascinating renaissance woman.  They're both incredibly bright, quick witted, just the right amount of childish, thoroughly well traveled, and persistently, effortlessly kind.  I have no doubt they're going to be amazing parents, and I'm so excited to see them grow as a new family.

It was an absolute blast hanging out with them at their home in New Orleans and capturing a slice of their home life (and I don't mean the pumpkin cinnamon buns, though they were definitely life changing).  Once again, I'm thankful: for Jessica and Lane as friends, for life in small pieces, and for the opportunity to journal times like this through photographs.  

Much love y'all :)

After photographing an incredible wedding for Lauren and Philip (congrats again you two!), I'm excited to finally share some of Lauren's gorgeous bridal portraits.  She wanted a mixture of looks from bright and soft to lush and green, with a little bit of fashion influence for good measure.  We had a blast wandering around, and nearly took too many photos - narrowing these down for a basic blog post was a doozy, so I just included a whole bunch :)

Wedding photos coming in the near future, so stay tuned!
