Hip and Adorable Orange Show and Menil Collection Engagement Shoot

Deb recalls how Lee chased her around for an entire year at their alma mater, Texas A&M. “I finally let him take me on a date,” she says. “It was the best decision I made in college.” About her engagement shoot locations, she says, “We chose the Orange Show because I have loved it from my times in high school when we would go to Houston from Sugar Land and ‘be cool.’ I also dabble in art and I have loved getting my inspiration from places like the Orange Show. The Menil has been my respite throughout our dating career. After all, in five years Lee has moved four times and there have been times when sitting in the grass or walking the halls of the Menil were the only thing that could soothe my soul.” Photos from photography studio Spindle Life attest to the couple’s adorableness and joy—which will only increase when the happy pair makes it official in November at The Rainbow Lodge.

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?

Hermann Park Engagement Shoot by Alicia Pyne Photography

Sure, pretty much everything about Kara and Harrison’s sun-drenched Hermann Park engagement shoot is romantic and magical. But can we just talk about the bride’s amazing makeup for a minute…which she did HERSELF? We’ve gotta say, this is something of a “don’t try this at home, gals” situation. After all, most of us could not achieve this level of photo-ready flawlessness without some serious professional help. But kudos to Kara (who, clearly, is drop-dead gorgeous to begin with) for getting it oh so right. No wonder handsome Harrison looks so adorably smitten with his lovely bride to be! And big thanks to Alicia Pyne for the captivating photos of this fine Houston couple. Congrats all around!
