We were a little worried about the rain on this wedding day. Marissa had decided that she would have to move her wedding inside instead of it being at a park. However, this worked out in her favor! If you live in Texas and are looking for an apartment, check out Station 21 in Lewisville. Those are some luxury apartments for a fraction of a price...anyways, this isn't a sales pitch. The rain cleared as soon as I arrived to start photos with the bride! They do say that rain is good luck...
This was by far the coolest wedding I have ever had a chance to shoot. Not only was the couple awesome..it was based on the movie Friday The 13th...even Michael Myers came in for some photos. See for yourself! Congrats to Katie & Marcus for tying the knot!
Karen and Gabriel's Wedding was nothing short of a fairy tale! They celebrated their big day at The Castle at Rockwall in Rockwall, Texas. I was fortunate enough to photograph these two in the beginning of their engagement and got to know them quite well. Gabriel lights up Karen's world every time she speaks. He surprised her during the reception by singing to her! The night was full of dancing, smiles and a great celebration! Take a look below!
I've known Kayla for a couple of years now. We got introduced by a band that we love, Avenged Sevenfold. She also lived in Wisconsin! She now resides in Arkansas with her wonderful boyfriend Greg and their adorable dogs. She knew she was going to be in Texas for a wedding in June and was so thrilled we could schedule a session for photos. A rainy day turned out to work in our favor as we went around the trails at Arbor Hills Nature Preserve in Plano. They had to represent The Packer's in Texas, go pack go!
Wedding season is approaching, spring is in the air and I kicked off this wedding season with an awesome couple. Kim & Rick have known each other for over 40 years! While being able to chit chat with Kim a little bit before she walked down the aisle, she told me what seemed like a fairy tale come true. They knew each other from high school, fell out of touch and went their own ways, then found each other again years ago and look at them now. It truly was a beautiful day to photograph these two getting married. There were many laughs and tears of joy. The best part was the first look, that is a newer "thing" and I'm so glad they did it. We made the poor groom cry and I almost cried! Congrats on the happy couple!
The holidays are over and I have to say that I have met so many awesome people during my mini sessions! There is a reason why I have a passion for photography and it's because I love to capture everything, especially during family sessions. The Clasby's were by far the most entertaining family to work with. They made my job a cake walk and thought out of the box. This wasn't some ordinary sit down and pose session, this was filled with Chuck Taylors, laughs and incredible poses. Take a look and see for yourself!
They say a picture is worth a thousand words..and that is exactly what this photoshoot was. Destiny just got her daughter back after 2 whole years. She has never been able to afford professional photos or have one professional photo of her daughter. I was honored to be able to shoot such a lovely family this past weekend in Wisconsin. This is why I do what I do.
The time has come and I have officially launched my photography and design business. I am overwhelmed by all of the love and support that I have gotten from everybody. HM DESIGN & PHOTOGRAPHY is ready for action!
This week as I get up and running, this photo has hit home and it will be my featured photo. You may be going through your own personal hell but you just need to keep smiling. You don't know what the future may hold. Be positive or you will be miserable.
