A+B had a beautiful vow renewal at 1111 Studewood Place – it was just beautiful. I helped make a slideshow from their wedding pictures from 10 years ago, and my assistant John couldn’t believe that those images were created 10 years ago – he said “But they look the same!”. The poor guy was so confused. A great time was had by all, and I’m thrilled with the images we were able to capture.
2015 was an amazing year. I didn’t realize how much shooting I did until I had the idea to show one image from each project I worked on all year,and then I realized that it worked out to over 100 commissions!
I got to shoot so many different things – of course weddings, engagement sessions, bridal sessions, an adoption (not pictured), kids birthday parties, births, family portrait sessions, headshots, graduations, a zombie halloween party, baptisms, Nigerian traditional wedding ceremonies, oh did you see the bridal session with the horse? (thank you Larissa!) a birthday party on a boat, product photography, a fashion show, concerts, the museum after closing hours and I even made time for a personal project. It’s been a blast! I love what I do because it makes a difference to the families I work with and it’s always something different, always something awesome.
Thank you so much to all the other professionals, coordinators and venues who helped make this happen, and a HUGE thank you to all the clients who chose me out of everyone else to work with. I appreciate it. Here’s to an even better 2016!
Sometimes a wedding comes along that I can’t wait to shoot and I’m sad when its come and gone. I had such a fun time shooting both their engagement and bridal sessions (will post later). Here are a few images from their big day! Congrats you guys!
B & J met at one of my favorite museums (I have a membership!) and when I suggested we have the session there, not only were they into it, they made arrangements for us to shoot there after hours after the crowds had left. Not only was it an amazingly fun session, it was the best guided tour ever. I even got to see where they met and hear the beautiful story, and oh we made lovely pictures while we were at it.
I got to shoot Sarah & Bio’s beautiful wedding in St Louis a couple of weeks ago – it was amazing. There were so many beautiful little touches and so much love from both families, and so so many people who travelled so far to be there – from Australia, Dubai, all sorts of places. One of the coolest little details was his wedding ring – it was made from her fingerprint! Loved that. Sarah’s father pulled double duty – right after he walked the bride down the aisle, he performed the ceremony! And the first kiss at their ceremony? It was their first kiss!!
Laura and Chike came into town completely prepared for their session – I was so impressed! It’s always a pleasure to shoot a couple who are so in love and very into the photography as well. We almost broke into a building, stole a bicycle and commandeered a city bus. And that’s not all… It was a good day. (And night!)
The same wedding was also featured on Bella Naija – I actually spoke to a few people who said they found me on there, which was pretty cool. Click the image below to check out the link.
So… it was a pretty cool surprise to have a wedding featured on Munaluchi Bride yesterday. Here’s a link to their post:
I had the distinct honor of photographing Emmy Odunze’s Album Release Concert at The Berry Center in Cypress Texas a couple of weeks ago, and it was amazing! I’ve done quite a bit of work for his church, House on the Word and I was really pleased they had me shoot this event as well. You should check out his album – photographing concerts is a win-win for me. Great music while I work.
I haven’t had time to shoot anything that wasn’t for a client in a looong time. That hasn’t really changed – I actually found a quick second during a shoot, while the client was changing to walk around and shoot this. I really love it, and I hope I can make time to shoot more personal work. Like the old days.
