Several months ago, our studio phone rang. The voice on the other end said that her name was Carol and that one of our best clients, Liz, had referred her to us. She was interested in finding a photographer for her daughter’s wedding in April 2012. We set up an appointment and during our meeting we simply hit it off perfectly and she loved our work. Her daughter, Margaret, then made an appointment to come by and see us. We showed her samples of our wedding work, some of our sample albums and had some happy hour treats in the studio while talking. She was thrilled and signed a contract and left a deposit for us to shoot her wedding. Cindy and I were really looking forward to it.
While she was in the studio, we also talked about her engagement session. We were meeting in the middle of the smoldering hot, drought-ridden summer, so we decided on an October session since she wanted some outdoor shots with her fiance, Kyle. We talked about the types of images they were interested in and we made a plan for the shoot. She wanted something that was a combination of rural and urban. We figured that Buffalo Bayou just outside of downtown was the right location. We set up and shot images in six different locations. Some had the greenery of the bayou only, some had downtown only and some had both the Houston skyline and the bayou greenery.
Near the end of our meeting, Margaret mentioned that she met Kyle at a U of H party that had a mexican theme. She said that when they first saw each other, they were both wearing sombreros. Well, we just had to find SOME way to incorporate that theme from their “beginning” into their session. So, we decided at the end of the session to don some sombreros and use those fun images for a Save The Date card.
Take a look a few of the many images from their session. We had such a great time and it shows in these images. If you’ve got portrait needs or have an upcoming wedding and/or engagement that you want us to shoot, call us on our studio line or simply email us. We want to hear from you – and let us know what you think of Kyle and Margaret’s images!
