Our last wedding of the year wasn’t even in Atlanta, go figure! And then my first wedding of 2013 was on another continent… is the universe trying to tell me something by these two events? Maybe just that our brides and grooms are AWESOME! =) This wedding in Houston, Texas at the Hilton Americas in Downtown is the extended third part of an earlier wedding that took place here in Atlanta. The families decided to throw on last party, the Valima, in the groom’s hometown and we had the privilege of being asked along to continue working with this amazing family. I sort of like this idea of an extended Valima, because usually the Valima happens after 2 other fully-packed days of wedding festivities and everyone from the families to the newlyweds to us are exhausted by then! Holding the Valima a couple od weeks later allowed us all to recuperate, and may explain why I think I took about the same number of portrait photos as I did actual event photos, another benefit of the bride and groom being totally up for all of my crazy ideas and setting aside plenty of time for us to shoot at a number of different locations around the gorgeous wedding venue, the Hilton Americas-Houston hotel.
Love this photo! =) Ok, we did the actual Valima too so here are a few previews of that…
Back to more portraits during the dinner break!!
Awesome wedding and a wonderful family, I can’t wait to share more on a full blog post!
