This session has all of my favorite things, dreamy light, a beautiful setting, lots of smiles and even more snuggles. Jon and Jeanetta are such a sweet couple and so easy to photograph. They met at a department store where Jeanetta was working. Jon lives in Houston, so they have been doing the long distance thing for a while, but in 14 weeks, all of that will be a memory when they tie the knot with all of their family and friends watching. Congratulations, Jon and Jeanetta!!! Thank you for inviting me in to your love story.

Three years ago today, I had my first date with a “random internet guy” named Jeff. We’d exchanged a emails and phone calls in the weeks leading up to our date. He seemed nice, but I wasn’t convinced that he was my type. My mom convinced me to “give a nice guy a try” for a change. And so I did.

Jeff wanted to pick me up at my house, but I’d heard too many horror stories about online dating. I insisted on driving myself and meeting him there (Chuy’s Mexican Restaurant). He ran 15 minutes late, which made me even more nervous than I already was. Turns out, he wasn’t a psycho and he WAS my type. After talking and laughing for nearly 4 hours that night, we had our first kiss in the Chuy’s parking lot. We were married exactly 23 months later (to the day).

Happy 3-year date anniversary to my “random internet guy”. You are still too nice and you still run late every time. And I love you for it. XOXO ❤️️

Spring is here!!! I am loving the sunshine and the breezes. It is the perfect time for engagement sessions. I met up with Frost and Beverly at the Historic Pearl… These two couldn’t keep their eyes off each other. I can’t wait for their wedding in November. Congratulations Beverly and Frost! Thank you for inviting me into your lives.
-Jenn

Get to know Frost & Beverly, in their own words…

What Beverly love’s about Frost:
I love how compassionate and caring he is with our friends and families. I love how we can both be absolute silly weirdos with each other and how he can always make me laugh.

What Frost love’s about Beverly:
The thing I love most about Beverly is her confidence and the way she carries herself. Once she puts her mind to something she makes it happen.

You guys!!!!! I am obsessed with this session. I first met Taylor at her sister Roque’s wedding in 2010. I had the joy of photographing Taylor and Brad’s engagement photos in 2015 and now welcoming their beautiful boy, Murdock James. I love lifestyle newborn session, capturing a family as they welcome a sweet little one and all the love (and sleepy eyes) that springs from this special time. Murdock’s nursery is styled to perfection. Thank you Taylor and Brad for welcoming me into your lives. Congratulations!!

Are you ready for part 2 of Paul and Kelly’s Hotel Emma engagement session? After a quick change of clothes, we headed outside to explore the area around Hotel Emma. I love natural light and it was the perfect time of evening when the sun turns warm and golden. Here are my favorites. (Can. Not. WAIT. for their Hotel Emma wedding this summer!)
-Jenn

Their proposal story, written by Kelly:

Paul surprised me the entire day. I had no idea what was going on. We started the day with a wonderful breakfast and a hair appointment for me. Then to my surprise, we climbed into a Mercedes s550 convertible to start our adventure.
We drove first to the mall where we picked out a “thank you” gift for the gal who helped him arrange the weekend plans. (She was wonderful to work with.) The gift was from Tiffany’s so I (Kelly) was mildly jealous at the thought that another woman would get Tiffany from my honey before me. I also knew that he put a lot of work into the weekend and Taylor deserved it for putting up with his particular ways.
We then we to a helicopter pad and flew to a winery. We enjoyed a private tour. Then we were served a delicious lunch and LOTS of wine. We began to walk outside on the patio, hung out by the fountain, then walked down into the grass. It was then that Paul pointed out pictures of our families on a trellis nearby. We exchanged hugs and kisses before he got on his knew and presented me with a BEAUTIFUL classic, Tiffany diamond ring and the only question that comes with it, “Will you be my wife?”  Of course I said yes, even ugly cried and held him. We walked down the yard to the helicopter to make our grand exit. It was perfect in every way imaginable. Every girls’ dream come true.
Had to get an outdoor shot of Hotel Emma! Check!
