    Summer Time!

    … is pretty much over 🙁 It was fun, but HOT! LOTS of beautiful weddings tho, for sure.. stay tuned for their albums as I post’em 🙂 Did you know the Southeast Texas Wedding Preview will be here in just a few weeks? I have 2 free passes available to the first bride to comment in the space below this post 🙂 Unfortunately I won’t be attending myself, I’ll be in New York City attending a weeklong photography seminar with several world-renowned photographers, truly some of the best in the world at what they do. I’m looking forward to learning a lot, eating too much in Little Italy, walking more…

    Las Vegas – SEMA 2009

    Warning: pretty car pictures ahead 🙂 My dad’s company is auto and truck accessory-related and as such we travel to Las Vegas every year for the world’s largest auto and truck aftermarket show – SEMA. I usually shoot way too many photos of way too many of the world’s finest autos and trucks – this year was no exception and I’ve posted a few from the week we were there. This year’s show was dominated by the new Mustangs: and 2010 Chevy Camaros: The Camaros were everywhere! In the evening, we’d stroll the Strip. After I got home I noticed how much these reminded me of my “at night” series…

    Paris la nuit (Paris at Night)

    We temporarily take a break in your scheduled wedding, engagement and senior photography to bring you the continuation of our “at night” series. The first you can find here – “Night Time in Venezia” – here we show a few of our favorite images from Paris. Evening descends on Paris: There’s something about strolling Paris at night – the activity in the main boulevards is amazing, nothing like peaceful Venice – you’ll get run over if you move too slowly, but since the cars and scooters are so small it will be merely a flesh wound. 🙂 Once you get off the main thouroughfares and into the neighborhoods, it quietens…

    Give Thanks

    Running a little late adding this one, with everything going on this time of year it’s a wonder I know which day it really is 🙂 Every year at Thanksgiving, my dad’s side of the family gets together for a family reunion. Pretty much each year we have it in a different place, choosing one that’s fairly central to everyone driving from all over the States. This year we stayed at South Toledo Bend State Park (on the Louisiana side). It’s a beautiful area, especially this time of year with the leaves changing, the ducks migrating, and families missing each other. 🙂 We gathered Wednesday afternoon, staying in the area…

    Night Time in Venezia

    I want to post a series of images captured in our recent travel to Venice, Italy. Gentlemen, if you ever have the opportunity to take your loved one to an international destination like Venice, Paris, London – run, do not walk, to the nearest travel desk at travelocity, expedia or hotwire. These places are perfect for honeymoons, engagements, and anniversaries. I am always available for destination weddings and engagements sessions, so feel free to ask – I can assist you with the arrangements. It really is a reasonable investment if you plan ahead and look in the right places 🙂 After a day filled with site-seeing, prosciutto, gelato, and seafood,…

    Linda and Chris’ Wedding

    Finally! 🙂 I just have to post a few of my favorite images from Linda and Chris’ recent wedding – the color was beautiful, but for most of the following photos black and white seemed to fit the mood better 🙂 Chris is my nephew, recently home from Iraq and the Marines and Linda is his gorgeous bride from Harlingen, Texas. Lots of family from both sides attended, Linda and Chris will have plenty of support as they start out in life together. We love you both! 🙂 But wait! I am getting ahead of myself… the day started off like most summer weddings in South Texas – hot with…

    Summer!

    While waiting for Chris and Linda’s wedding photos to be posted, I thought I’d give you a look at one of the more eligible bachelors in Texas enjoying the peak of summer play. Stand in line ladies, he’ll be available ~2027 🙂 For those who have met the little guy, you know one of his favorite things about summer is watermelon. He can eat his weight in the delicious summer fruit and will give you a good 2-foot stomp if you take it away before he’s eaten most of the rind 😀 mmm… He spent most of his day playing in the sand or the water’s edge – and…
