Giddy & Gold » Houston Wedding and Lifestyle Photography

The forecast was stormy, the skies were dark grey, and the humidity was outta control. All the makings of a session gone bad. Thankfully, Kim and Richard decided to risk it and we met up anyway for their engagement session at Mercer Arboretum.

I’m SO glad we did. A cloudy day is my favorite, the weather was cooler, and there was hardly anyone around! It was perfect. And Kim and Richard were one of the most chill couples ever. We walked around the gardens chatting about GoPros, Rudy’s BBQ, and what a cool spot the arboretum really is. I’ve done a couple of other sessions there but had no idea as to the depth of the place! So much color, different textures, gorgeous scenery. Happy we had a low-key day to explore it all.

I can’t wait for Kim & Richard’s wedding – ti’s going to be a PARTY, I can feel it! Until then, enjoy a snippet of their summer engagement session.

That was Tammie & Ryan – always laughing and making googly eyes at each other. Ryan would run to the car for something and upon his return, Tammie would exclaim “HI!” as if she hadn’t seen him yet that day.

So I knew this would maybe be the easiest session ever and I was so right. They took direction so well and would immediately smile and laugh and kiss each other. Yay for them and yay for me! Because these are some of my favorite images EVER. Note to all future brides: when you are in love it shows and you don’t have to worry about looking awkward or being nervous!

Oh and by the way, this is my sister and soon to be bro in law! So after our session at Swiss Avenue and Highland Park in Dallas, we swung on over to The Porch for some delicious “we earned it!” dinner with friends. It was a great day in Dallas and I’m thrilled to share these photos. Tammie and Ryan – I hope you love them. I also hope you love me enough to move back to Texas soon. K, thanks.

This is my new favorite thing – when one of my brides calls me to do her maternity session! I love seeing a happy marriage and a GROWING family!:)(You may recognize Melissa and Jose from their wedding and her bridal session.)

Melissa makes pregnancy look fantastic! And she is always so smile-y and Jose is one of the friendliest guys I’ve every come across - so I knew I was bound to get great photos and have a great time no matter what.

I learned a fun tip about shooting at Town Green Park in the Woodlands – if you have a session during a concert at the Pavilion, you have a pretty sweet soundtrack to accompany you. We were graced with live country music and Sheryl Crow! And thankfully, though there was a storm in the distance, it stayed away juuuuuust long enough for us to complete this session. Perfect atmosphere for a maternity session in Texas in July!

Baby Eva is due in September and I can’t wait to capture her new life. Until then, enjoy this beautiful family!
