I abosolutely LOVE the photos we were able to get from Kayode & Funlola’s Chateau Polonez wedding in Houston. It is not uncommon for wedding photographers to comment on the weather during on wedding day. The fact is, we love pretty days because they help to make pretty pictures. However, what about those hectic rainy days. You hardly see photographers comment on how the rain contributed to the day. Well, Kayode & Funlola’s wedding happened to be on one of those days . It rained off and on all day from the early morning. Everytime you thought the day was going to brighten up and the rain was going to stop, it would rain again. So much so, that it actually began to rain right at the end of the outdoor ceremony. This caused everyone, including myself, to run for cover immediately following the processional. However, despite the weather, nothing could ruin the beauty of Kayode and Funlola’s wedding! It was truly a wonderful event that at the end of the day was an honor to be a part of!
This Fall Tamika and I were fortunate enough to photograph Justin & Jessica’s Red Oak Ballroom Wedding in Houston at City Center. For those of you that are not familiar with Justin & Jessica, we shot their engagement session earlier this year at the University of Houston.
Together Jessica and Justin are definitely one of our favorite couples be around. They both have an upbeat spirit and affinity for having a good time. Which seems only natural considering that Justin is originally from New Orleans while Jessica comes from Tennesse. So, it was only right that their wedding was packed with emmense joy and southern charm. So much so, that Jessica with the help of the wonderful event planner, Alexia McWhinney from Savvy Consulting & Events, even manage to end the celebration by surprising Justin with an authentic New Orleans brass band that provided the perfect escort for their grand exit. It was definitely a night to remember and an event that we were happy to attend! Below are some of the images from their amazing Wedding at Norris Center’s Red Oak Ballroom at City Center in Houston Texas.

Early this spring we were offered an opportunity shoot two styled bridal sessions at Le Meridien’s The Stoneleigh Hotel & Spa. This was such an amazing and meaningful opportunity for us because, as you may or may not know, Tamika and I had a Stoneleigh Hotel Dallas Wedding.
So, in coordinating our session with local planner Ebony Peoples (who is amazing) we incorporated the help Bridgett Harrison for hair and make up and casted the beautiful international model Cheryl Jones, who happened to actually be engaged! This worked perfect as a glimsp of what it may feel like on her Big Day! Ultimate the shoot turned out perfect and from it I was able to create amazing lookbooks that we will be offering in the future along with our bridal and engagement sessions as another book style keepsake option. Stay tuned for images of the lookbook. In the mean time, here are some of the images from the session!
