When I rolled up to Naseem & Ricky’s sangeet the day before the wedding, I was greeted with the biggest of hugs from Ricky’s mother, Noreen. Five years, four months, & 2 days prior I photographed Ricky’s sister’s wedding in Puerto Rico and to this day, they treat me like a member of the family. They held their wedding at Naseem’s family ranch in Bastrop and hosted a sangeet at my favorite Austin Indian restaurant g’raj mahal. The wedding incorporated Persian traditions including a sofreh aghd and the cake knife dance. It was a truly beautiful reception just far enough out in the country to not receive cell service. There might not be anymore Nainani sibling weddings to shoot anymore but I know that this family hasn’t seen the last of me ;)

Christine and Travis currently live in Austin, TX which is how they found me. We had their engagement session at one of my favorite Austin parks, Zilker park, as well as a bottle of champagne with their dog at their home nearby. They are originally from California and decided to have a destination wedding in the beautiful Sonoran desert because it is one of Christine’s favorite places in this world. Loews Ventana Resort has a beautiful outdoor ceremony spot, an outdoor cocktail & dinner area, then after the desert’s cool air rolled in, they moved the party inside for dancing. Christine & Travis are avid travelers, highly intelligent people, and know how to get down on the dance floor, basically my favorite kind of people. I’ve been traveling to Arizona to see family for the last 20 years so it was an absolute honor to finally get a chance to photograph one of the amazing sunsets going over the Sentinel Peak.

This past March I went out to Belize for the second time this year to photograph Lianie & David’s San Ignacio wedding. I posted about their engagement session photographed the day before at their family ranch here. Being from Houston, I’ve experienced some warm weddings but this one was a hot one, especially for mid March…. in so many ways :) The heat didn’t stop a single person from getting down on the dance floor and these local Belizeans (scattered with a few from around Texas and the states). Signature Belize weddings & events did an amazing job of converting what was a football sized backyard of grass into an amazingly beautiful event. Lianie & David are total sweethearts and it was very apparent but not only how many people were in attendance (around 300) but also by how many loving speeches were given about them. I cannot thank them enough for bringing us out there for to be apart of their wedding day.

Katie, Bret, & I first met via skype while I was in Guatemala for another wedding last August. They’ve been together since high school, attending prom together even, and continued to grow together over the years. I’m convinced that the both of them are saints based on their careers, Katie works with children and Bret hosts a morning radio show in Atlanta. They decided to have a small wedding of their favorites on the beautiful Caribbean island of St Lucia. Bret’s MC friends did an amazing job getting every single person there on the dance floor. Under the full moon everyone danced the night away. The next afternoon, I met Katie & Bret at the hotel to pick them up to a location I had scouted out. They had no idea where we were going and I simple asked them to trust me :). I ended up discovering an old sugar mill off the east coast of the island and the groundskeeper was willing to let us in despite it being closed on Sundays. This was a true testament to the fact that the St Lucian people are among the nicest I have ever met. So it was a fitting place for two of the nicest people to tie the knot on an island full of the nicest people.
