hart family // corpus christi family portraits

Another awesome family in the Corpus Christi area, we went to the Texas State Aquarium, the USS Lexington (aircraft carrier) and then spent some time on the beach.  I loved being able to just tag along with their family doing things that they would normally would do.  Their son is a little ball of energy and could run around all day, and he kept me on my toes for sure!  Thank you thank you for letting me be a part of your day!


nikki + chad + family // texas family lifestyle

I’m finally getting back around to blogging some of my recent portrait work, it’s been a super busy spring and am sooooo thankful for all of the awesome clients I’ve been able to work with!  I traveled to Corpus Christi, Texas, last month and had a wonderful time creating some of my favorite portraits to date.  Nikki & Chad have a beautiful family, a wonderful home, and live in a really really awesome part of the USA.  I tagged along for a couple of hours at their place, went swimming, and then hung out at the beach.  Natural and fun, that’s the way it should be.  Enjoy!

What is cooler than an abandoned, run-down, hurricane destroyed resort? St Croix Wedding Photographer

Not much in fact.  While on my stay on the beautiful island of St. Croix (US Virgin Islands) I had a chance to take some scenic drives and take in the beauty.  While out driving on the very far east end of the island, I stumbled upon an old hotel/resort right on the beach.  I knocked on some doors in the area and spoke with some long time locals about it, it had been completely thrashed and destroyed in hurricane Hugo of 1989.  A category 5+ that apparently most Americans are clueless to.  Anyway, it was the coolest place for some edgy and grundgy bridal portraits.

I texted Amber & Carraig to see if they would be up for it (after all they were enjoing their honeymoon already).  Luckily they were, and boy were they in for a treat.  It doesn’t get much better than this ladies & gentlemen.  I felt like James Bond with the whole exotic island, ravished old hotel, awesome weather with a beautiful bride to photograph.  I could only have dreamt about something this cool!

Enough jabber, enjoy the awesomeness :D

For the photographers and photo-junkies, here’s some quick setup shots taken by the groom (my assistant as well!)  Check out this hotel, isn’t it AWESOME?

It’s quite necessary to even lug around tons of expensive lighting gear to an island.  Good photographers never leave home without it!

Just Amber | US Virgin Islands Wedding Portraits

I keep getting subliminal text messages from the bride & groom about them wanting to see more pics, and even though my current mobile setup for editing and posting numerous photographs isn’t quite what I’m used to, I can get a few more :D

Every time I look through the images I’m just super excited about them, and you can probably tell by now!  Here we go with just a couple more of just Amber . . . then a post to come just of Carraig and the bling.  Thanks again all who have helped me get to where I am now!

This one could easily be the new cover for InStyle Weddings!
