A Lovely Bride Named Hannah – Katy West Houston Bridal Photograper

Well, here’s to an exciting  first at SPCcreative Photography.

Hannah is my very first Senior Portrait client  to also become one of “MY” brides, and I can hardly WAIT to watch the next chapters of her sweet life unfold.

I still remember her senior session.  She brought her ultra-handsome and oh-so lovable new boyfriend, Jake, along for part of the shoot, and we included him in a few of our images. While I could tell they had something very special between them,  logic tried hard to convince me that  I was just being a sucker for young love.

Who would have thought that Jake  really was  going to be THE ONE?  I guess  they both knew a good thing from the get-go.

Hannah and Jake were married in the chapel at The Brookwood Community where, as it turns out,  I worked as a development officer for the first three years that we lived in Houston.  Brookwood is  a beautiful campus with a fascinating mission.  It’s located just outside of Brookshire, Texas.

RATZ my link didn’t seem to work, check out www.brookwoodcommunity.org for more info.

I love it when a bride has a special idea  that she wants  incorporate into her session, and Hannah wanted to create a special gift for her father. Ahhhh the sentiment!

You can’t tell here, but we all shared a few tears while she wrote this note on a  slate.

Best wishes Hannah and Jake — for a LONG and HAPPY life together.

  2. Just beautiful!! Your pictures absolutely radiate her beauty and the joy of the day. Her slate board message to her father brought chills and a tear…. She is very special, that’s easy to see!
