Kim & Brek | Wedding | Manhattan, KS | Chris, b & autumn

Happy Friday everyone! Welcome to wedding month on the La Brisa blog! We are going to catch up on as many 2012 weddings as we can this month! So prepare your eyeballs for some gorgeous weddings!

Kim and Brek are undoubtedly one of the most attractive couples we have ever photographed. From Brek's masculine good looks to Kim's stunning gorgeousness, they look like supermodels. Though the best thing about them is how much they adore each other. You can tell how much they love they share just by the momentary glances of legitimate joy throughout their wedding day. They planned their wedding perfectly. From a private an intimate first look to an emotional ceremony to an absolute party of a reception, everything that they did was brilliantly planned and completed!

Thank you again so much for trusting the La Brisa team with your wedding photography! We hope that you still LOVE your images!

Here are our Week 33 – “GREEN” images!

this weekend was St. Paddy's day- such a great holiday. There was lots of green beer to be had- but sometimes you just need a frosty glass of green wine...

love bright sunshine through tree tops.

Kelli & Steven | Attraction Session | Fulshear, TX | Chris

I honestly did not know what to expect when I drove 45 minutes outside of Houston to meet Kelli and Steven in a Best Buy parking lot. Their emails were pleasant and cordial. My creepy stalking of them on facebook was superficial at best (yes, all photographers do this). They had selected a location that was meaningful to them and that made me super excited for their Attraction Session. When they arrived, Steven jumped out of the car to introduce himself with a giant smile on his face and I immediately liked him. Then Kelli stepped out and she was just naturally flawless. Like breathtakingly so. Whoa.

We proceeded together to a few locations and I had a truly fantastic time getting to know them, hearing their story and getting excited for the session. What stood out to me were their tremendous hearts for each other. They were so plugged in to the wishes and preferences of each other that they reminded me of my own marriage of 6 years. They were far beyond the level of most couples and that is an amazing foundation to have going into a marriage. All in all, this was one of my favorite sessions ever and I hope that that is obvious in the following images of Kelli and Steven!

Thank you again for trusting La Brisa to photograph your Attraction Session. I hope that you LOVE your images
