Paintball TTD Shoot by Joey T Photography, Plus $700 Engagement-Shoot GIVEAWAY!

We know some of y’all have mixed feelings about trash-the-dress shoots, and we’re with ya on that. But Tiffany and Ted’s absolutely awesome paintball TTD shoot is one that just makes us smile. Shot by the terrifically talented Joey Thomas of Joey T Photography at Tank’s Paintball Park in Katy, this shoot is everything a TTD shoot should IOHO: playful, joyful, unique…and just so darn hot.

Side note about Tiffany’s dress: “I bought it a week after I was engaged. My maid of honor and I went to the Brides Against Breast Cancer Tour as our first bridal event. I tried on a couple dresses to get more of an idea of what I liked, and I found the one, for an affordable price and a great cause.”

How cool is that? How gorgeous are Tiffany and Ted? How great is it that they can look so sophisticated, and yet not take themselves too seriously? How CUTE are the color-coordinated accessories and paintball splotches? How much do you love Joey T’s utterly beautiful images?

How’d you like to see yourself and your future hubby through this top Houston wedding photographer’s lens??

Here’s your chance! We are giving away not one but TWO $700 Joey T Photography engagement shoots, complete with two hours of on-location photography in the greater Houston area, and a stunning 16X24 heirloom-quality enlargement (you can, of course, order as many photos as you like…or should we say, love).

Tradition-Filled Indian Wedding by C. Baron Photography

Sometimes we come across a wedding whose images are so rich with color and texture, so rippling with life and tradition, so gorgeously representative of the details of the celebration, we kinda just need to let them speak for themselves. Hence the wedding of Ranjita and Suchin, held at Safari Texas and filled with north and south Indian touchstones and influences, representing the pair’s individual cultural backgrounds and families. Great thanks to C. Baron Photography for sharing these wondrous images, and happiest wishes to the newlyweds. The rest of y’all, just sit back, scroll down, and be wowed.

Sumptuous La Colombe d’Or Wedding by J. Cogliandro Photography

They may both be medical residents now, embarking on brilliant careers and a life as husband and wife. But it wasn’t all that long ago that Rebecca and Meng were 9th graders, encountering each other for the first time—or high-school seniors attending homecoming on their first date. With so much history to their relationship, it isn’t surprising that they chose a Houston wedding venue steeped in history—La Colombe d’Or, with its magnificent 18th-century carved wood panels and extensive art collection—for their grand celebration. Opulent, but not overdone. Formal, but not stuffy. And absolutely, ultimately first-class all the way, Rebecca and Meng’s special day is a Houston wedding classic. And we couldn’t be more thrilled for them. Happiest wishes to the couple, and huge thanks to J. Cogliandro Photography for the heirloom-quality photos of this one-for-the-ages affair.
