Jeff & Jessica met on an Austin Texas night back in 2009. While salsa dancing with a group of mutual friends, Jessica invited Jeff onto the floor to teach him a thing or two and break the ice (seriously, this girl can dance). Her salsa abilities had him hooked, and after that night it was a done deal. I have the pleasure of working with Jeff at Hewlett-Packard here in Houston and after meeting Jessica on a snowboarding trip to Colorado earlier this year, I knew they had something special. I’m so thankful I got to be there to experience their big day both as friend and photographer. All the best guys!

I met TJ when I uprooted my life in the Northeast and decided to try my luck living and working in Houston, TX. When I met TJ upon arriving in Houston, I immediately knew there was something special about him. His desire and willingness to sacrifice time & talent to help others, was something that I envied – the definition of a humble servant. We became really good friends and have experienced quite a few adventures together over these last two years. I quickly learned that TJ loved a few things in particular: being cajun, eating crawfish, sports, Raising Caine’s chicken strips and absolutely decimating people in disc golf. In particular, he had always expressed a strong desire be a husband and a raise a family, but was content with serving in our church community until the right lady came into his life.
It wasn’t until the summer of 2010 when a married friend of TJ’s offered up two extra tickets to a Houston Astros game. His friend promised him the tickets only if he could bring a date with him, as this was a double date only. That night, TJ got up the nerve and asked Lanie if she would go to the game with him. She agreed, and the rest is history!
I have the pleasure of calling them both my friends and I’m excited to see their marraige, and our friendship grow. Congrats guys!

Mark and Lauren are an awesome couple I got the chance of shooting last month. Choosing a photographer was the last item on their long wedding checklist and I’m honored they got in touch with me! After meeting up with the couple to discuss details of the big day and what they were looking for; I knew we were going to get along extremely well. Come to find out, Mark used to live fairly close to where I lived during college – Providence Rhode Island, and worked right down the road from my hometown of Groton, Connecticut. Small world!
After getting to know these two; I noticed their love of a few special things: Tattoos, Chuck Taylors and each-other!
Mark & Lauren – I had a blast getting to know you guys and being a part of your big day. Oh yeah, Mark – pencil me in for a tattoo appointment, I’ve got some ideas to run by you!
Check out a few shots from their big day and be sure to leave some love in the comments!
The reception was held at the Cypress Chateau in Northwest Houston, TX. The staff was great and the atmosphere was amazing. Huge props to the fine folks at the Cypress Chateau!
Had a little fun with Mark and the groomsmen.
Congrats to the happy couple! God bless you guys.
