sunset portrait bride groom woodlands

      I adore Hannah and Brent. I know I say that about all my couples, and I mean it each time, but really — Hannah and Brent hired me way back in 2011, wanted to do a food fight for their engagement session, and quoted Wayne’s World a lot. I can’t really imagine a better introduction for these two amazing people. They were married at the Woodlands Resort and Conference Center outside, and held their rocking reception in The Glass.

      I’m trying to write more about this wedding, but it’s hard to find the words. So let me sum up: Golf carts. Lettuce bouquets. Perfect Texas weather in February. JPL mashing up Gangnam Style and Cupid Shuffle. People dancing like crazy. Little wooden cats on their cake topper. Red wedding shoes. Bubbles.

      Here are just a few of my favorite shots from Hannah and Brent’s wedding.
