Sophisticated City-Chic Engagement Shoot by Ama Photography & Cinema

“Having met in Europe on independent vacations, our relationship has always been long distance, focused on traveling to be together,” says bride-to-be Olga, who will marry Brian next June. “We got engaged in Mexico and felt like we never had any pictures commemorating our time in Houston, where Brian is from and where we now live. Our focus was finding locations that we felt were true to Houston.” With help from photographer Aisha Khan of Ama Photography & Cinema, the pair found inspiration in oak-lined North and South Boulevards, and the verdant beauty of Hermann Park. For the second part of their shoot, Olga opted to wear a white tuxedo jacket to complement Brian’s traditional tux. Though you’d never know it, neither of these two had ever actually had professional photographs taken before, and were both very nervous. “However I think dressing up and using props such as the vintage chair helped us to be more in character. We could have never imagined such fantastic photos, all credited to the vision of our extremely talented photographer!” Kudos to Khan, and our sincere thanks to Olga and Brian for sharing their beautiful photos with all of us…and all of you.

City Pretty Houston Metro Bridal Shoot by Sarah Ainsworth Photography

While lots of Houston couples choose gritty city locations for their e-sessions, the urban bridal shoot is a rare bird. A shoot like Bim’s bridals, by HWB fave Sarah Ainsworth makes us wish it weren’t so. The parks, street corners and buildings that serve as backdrops for Bim’s photos just enhance the bride’s incredible loveliness, and the grandeur and femininity of her stunning Lazaro gown and magnificent bouquet. A little background on our gorgeous bride, courtesy of Ainsworth: “Bim and John met while working at the same company in San Francisco. They currently live and work in Australia. Bim is quiet and absolutely the sweetest person you will ever meet. John is so caring of everyone and adores his bride.” The couple has already tied the knot at Houston’s Petroleum Club, but will celebrate a second wedding in Sri Lanka to include Bim’s entire family. We’re so grateful to Bim for sharing her beautiful images with our brides. Congratulations, and much happiness to you and John!

Sixth Ward Engagement Shoot by Ashley K Photography

Not many of our couples choose gritty urban landscapes for their engagement shoots. But we think that may change, once y’all get a look at Lan and Avi’s Houston engagement photos by the brilliant Ashley Kohlleffel of Ashley K Photography. Notes Ashley, “We shot this in Houston’s Sixth Ward off Washington Avenue…an eclectic mix of new and old. Lan and Avi had such a cool, relaxed approach to their session. They were so easy to shoot!” Probably doesn’t hurt that these mellow to-be-weds happen to be downright gorgeous, too. We never knew graffiti and chain-link fences could be so darn…romantic. But Lan and Avi (and Ashley) make them so.
