Thank you for considering me on your big day. I may take my job seriously, but I never take myself seriously. I’m a major goofball and a hopeless romantic. I'm the kinda guy who loves flying planes but cries watching The Notebook (but that was just once.)
Perhaps that’s why I find the responsibility of photographing weddings so gratifying.
Creating great images while preserving the essence of the couple’s love for each other.
Such is the cornerstone of my shooting style; the core of my passion. And I would be
honored to serve the same for your memories.
Thank you for visiting my website. I hope you enjoy these photos as much as I do.
So, folks… I got married last month. That’s right, I got hitched. It’s such a weird feeling. Being a guy, everybody asked if I was nervous or if I felt the “jitters” before the big day. But no, it was awesome. I was so excited to tie the knot that I felt so relaxed the week of the wedding. Family was in town, friends close by, great company, and just a lot of love. There is not a better present this Christmas than being blessed with a wonderful wife to spend the rest of my life with. And I am stoked!
Here’s a highlight slideshow from my wedding last November. Photos by Denver-based Photographer, Brooke Trexler. (Thanks Brooke!) You can find her blog of awesome photos HERE.
So, a few days ago I posted Ashley and Matt’s wedding as I normally do. But, I also mentioned that we got so many bride and groom portraits that I could not include them all in the same post! Well, here they are. Enjoy.
The lovely couple who is Ashley and Matt are now o-fficially married! Remember their engagement session last May? Time flies. Their ceremony was held at one of the nicest venues I’ve photographed – Heather’s Glen in Conroe. The details in there are beautiful. It’s very well designed and the layout is full of lovely photographic opportunities that I could’ve sworn it was designed for a photographer. The staff was very nice, too. Thank you, Lisa for showing me around because I was 45 minutes early!
We took a lot of photographs in the bride’s room then proceeded with the ceremony where close family and friends attended. Everyone was ecstatic. Eyes wide, big grins, neck muscles stretched. You only ever see that discreet, rather restrained excitement in weddings, just before the ceremony. It’s contagious, too!
Their intimate ceremony was followed by a celebration at Market Street in The Woodlands. Jasper’s Gourmet Backyard Cuisine is where the newlywed’s reception was held. Ashley and Matt selected cupcakes for their wedding cake, as many brides do nowadays. Gigi’s Cupcakes made them. Mmmmm. After some thank you’s and well-wishes to the couple by their guests, food was served. Jasper’s had some really good lemon rotisserie chicken, by the way. Ashley and Matt then showed everyone a slideshow of photos they put together. Watching it, you could tell they were meant for each other. The mothers agree, as they cried in the end.
The celebration ended with a quick bouquet toss with Ashley’s bridemaids and close friends. Then, ready for more pictures, I walked with the now Mr. and Mrs. Matt Goold around Market Street and to their hotel, The Avia. We ended up with a lot of bride and groom shots that I have to post a separate entry just for them! All in all it was a wonderful day. Congratulations, Matt and Ashley!
So.. I’m on the home stretch of finishing photos from Ashley and Matt’s wedding. But, half an hour of my time was wasted because all I did was stare at this one photo of Ashley. I got up, got a drink, walked back to my editing room, stood behind my computer chair and stared at it. To me, it just glows. And I keep looking around it, wondering if there are elements taking away from the center of the photo. Nope. Even I was drawn in to the focus of the image… the bride.
