I must admit that one of the perks of my job is meeting wonderful people. I met John Paul & Marie Claire (love their names) through Claudia E De Velasco with A Day To Remember, and they were such a pleasure to work with. They are adorable together because they are so in love… which makes me happy! I absolutely enjoy photographing couples in love. Our session together was interesting to say the least… and most definitely an adventure!

Our day started with beautiful light falling from the blue skies above. The trees which line the driveway of Moffitt Oaks in Tomball, TX, was a wonderful start to our session. Her hair and make-up was flawless and her dress was absolutely stunning.

However, we soon realized a Texas-Sized Storm was brewing. The sky began to darken, the temperature dropped and the wind started picking up. We turned around only to find a HUGE Storm quickly approaching from behind us. We ran out to the back field to capture this image.

This was literally, “The Calm Before The Storm.” We stayed for about 5 minutes against this amazing backdrop and didn’t want to test mother nature. A few seconds after we jumped into the golf carts, the rain arrived with intense force. Sheets and sheets of HEAVY RAIN poured on us as we made our way across the property to the barn.

When the rain cleared, we were treated to this beautiful rainbow. We had to capture this wonderful gift.

At the end of the day Maire Claire and John Paul surprised us with these custom made matching military outfits. He brought some fun items to spice up the session and we ended this great day with these fun images.
