Well, hello there and welcome to the blog. While the website has been around for a few years, I've been thinking about the blog and decided to test it out. Maybe it'll stay, we'll see.
Scenes from a battleground.
Remember the Alamo.
I wanted to stick with the black and white theme but that flag.
And now I have "Texas, Our Texas" stuck in my head.
Scenes from a junior high after Hurricane Harvey.
There are no major photojournalism discoveries here, only a few details. We were over at the local tennis court while this helicopter kept landing and taking off, which doesn't normally happen, unless there was a major storm with flooding and an official is needing to check things out. There also aren't normally park ranger vehicles lined up or boats in the parking lot.
little soon for my yearly blog post but sometimes you just have to change things up a bit. For example, I don't photograph weddings. That's my first set of guidelines, words to live by, rules... I won't do it. I put my foot down unless you're my sister, my cousin or someone who introduces yourself to me as an anti-bride. Once Emily said that, my reaction was to keep listening. I'm so glad I did.
Emily and Trice were awesome to work with. They had a small ceremony at Tiny's No. 5 and everything was so pretty. It all looked perfect. I showed up a little early to get a feel for the space. At the last minute I started to worry about what if Emily wasn't really an anti-bride but once I met them, any doubt flew out the window. They were super sweet, totally laid back and really made me rethink the whole "no wedding" rule. I had a lot of fun with them and I'm so glad that not only she asked, but that I made an exception my rule and did it.
Here's a few from their day.
Congratulations to the newlyweds and again, I'm so thankful to have been asked to photograph their day.
