Houston Wedding Photography of Elizabeth and Cole

Hey everybody!

Meredith and I... oh, and Cece... hopped on a plane to Houston the morning after Kaylee's wedding for Elizabeth and Cole's wedding ('tis full-blown wedding season!)

I hadn't met the couple in person before the wedding since the live so far away, but as soon as I saw each of them separately on the wedding day, it was as if we had known each other for years!  Elizabeth and Cole are SO warm, both have my kind of personalities, and it made us fast friends!

Elizabeth, who's about as gorgeous as a bride can be, brought along some beautiful wedding details to make my job a piece of cake. She even embellished her Badgely Mischka shoes with some flair!

Mere could shoot these heart-stopping details all day long. Everything Elizabeth did was graceful. Seriously!

I'd never photographed at this chapel, but the lighting was so perfect with lots of available light and white walls and ceiling. I love this shot because it includes the mommas too! :)

I brought my "stalker lens" so I could get close ups like this without acting a fool...

Just about the best hey-we-just-got-married shot I've ever taken! See? How cool are these two?

Then we shot some pretty portraits. Here is a quick teaser of what's on the blog tomorrow.

Gallery M Squared was such a cool location for a wedding reception! Keep scrolling... you'll see!

Again with that gracefulness! Such a beauty!  Also, check out their silhouettes, which was a graphic element repeated throughout the wedding.  I LOOOOVE THAT!

Here we go folks... my NEW ALL-TIME FAVORITE wedding idea...

... projecting your favorite chick-flick romantic comedy as the background during the reception dinner.  Benny Brides... STEAL THIS IDEA!

Elizabeth's daddy dance was full of spins and turns.

Then it was time to get funky.

I think Cole even impressed himself! :)
