    Hermann Park Engagement Photos – Lauren and Chris

    Recently I met Lauren and Chris at Hermann Park in Houston for their engagement session for their upcoming wedding – the wind was blowing in from the North something fierce!

    Beaumont Bridal ~ Jacqueline

    Jacqueline has gotten married recently, so now it’s time to whip out some of my favorites from her bridal portraits session. We started the day with something subdued. We were trying to locate her inner diva! And indeed we found it. As we started to feel the groove. Her inner Sassyness started to show too! Yup, Sassy with a capital S and exclamation point. Midway through the session she brought along her dog, Annie. I loved how Annie was so into the whole bridal session. She gamely posed with Jacqueline without any reservations. As we were about to move on, as if on cue, she started playing with Jacqueline. That…
