Ahhh this was a great one! Wedding photographers will tell you that it’s not about where they get married but who they are and how they do it. Heading out to Houston for a wedding at Hotel ZaZa was obviously a great thing, but more importantly it was getting to photograph this great couple, Sarah and Jonathan. Doing what they do on one of the greatest days of the lives.
So this is Sarah and Jonathan’s story, however I do want to step in and tell you a little about why this wedding was such a privilege for me to shoot.
I first met Jonathan, aka Booe on my first trip to Houston to photograph Natalie and Eli’s wedding where Booe would be a guest.
Later that year I was celebrating again with Booe, when he flew out to Mexico to officiate Aleece and Tim’s destination wedding.
Our paths would cross one more time at Kathleen and Todd’s destination wedding in Turks and Caicos. When at this point I was chilling in the pool when he introduced me to his fantastic fiancé Sarah.
Having photographed Booe in plenty of other roles at other weddings I was thrilled when they asked me to be part of their own day.
And what a day it was!
A day that was so entertaining and so relaxed that it started with golf and beer, Mimosa’s and Muu-Muus!
It was all about having fun. You’ll struggle to find a picture where there’s not a broad smile. With Sarah even playing a little trick on Jonathan when they exchanged gifts.
Following their ceremony it was all about the party, with the soundtrack provided by an awesome show band. With some amazing first dances it was clear that nothing was to be left on the dance floor.
During a pit stop from the dancing I was introduced to my new happy place, a land of chicken and waffles. Chicken and waffles! A place I’ll be keen to go back again real soon!
As expected the Sarah and Jonathan’s evening didn’t smoothly glide to an end. Instead their exit was all guns blazing. Well confetti cannons at least!
Here are a few of my favourites from Sarah and Jonathan’s wedding at Hotel ZaZa. You can also see and share these on my Facebook page.
