What do you get with you a girl from Canada meets a boy from Mexico while they are both living in Texas?  You get a wild and crazy family weekend! My cousin Michelle (yes, another Canadian living in Texas) finally married the love of her life, Jorge, and we did our best to have the biggest Can-exican party weekend EVER!!  I know we stopped doing Sneak Peeks but I just had to share a few of these with the world.

We love you both so much and we can’t wait to see what life has in store for you!

It seems our re-designed booth was a huge success!  Thank you to everyone who came by to see us, you made this a fantastic show!  We were pretty busy most of the day so if you came by but didn’t have a chance to talk to us, send us an email and we will tell you about our show specials!

We would also like to congratulate Jessica who is getting married in Fort Worth next July, she has won a free engagement session!

Tanya and I have shot old time costume photos for 30 years.  Steampunk made sense to us since we already had costumes, we just needed the right props.  Combining our greenscreen experience and costume knowledge we have been able to do some very fun Steampunk events and also with our photobooth that we can set up as Steampunk.

In March we had our photobooth at Alisha & Dean’s Clockwork Carnival Cabaret Wedding in Azle. We were in our own 10×20 section of a very large tent. It was a lot of fun and the party went late into the evening. So many people were dressed up in Steampunk and A Clockwork Orange outfits, it made the photos look great. Thanks to the groom’s brother and sister in law Andy and Cassandra for their great set of photos.

We have also been at some of the DFW areas larger Steampunk events and look forward to this years Steampunk November in Venus.

Happy New Year MMXIV

I absolutely love daytime weddings.  Don’t get me wrong, a wedding at any time of the day is beautiful, but there is something about seeing that sun shining during the ceremony that just makes me smile.  After Holly & Shawn’s touching (and sunny) ceremony, we did some quick family photos and then on to the reception!  I admit, this is a somewhat self-indulgent post as I included some of my own family photos.

My mom, Shawn’s grandmother (both came from Canada for the wedding) and Eloisa (she is Michelle’s soon to be mother-in-law and she was visiting form Mexico).  Yes, our little Canadian-Texan family is expanding to include Mexico as well :).

We had the great pleasure of photographing Holly & Shawn’s wedding last year. Not only was it a beautiful and emotional day but it meant so much more to us because Shawn is also my cousin. You heard that right – I have relatives here!

When I moved to the US 12 years ago I was lucky enough to move to the same metro area as one of my cousins (Shawn’s dad, Darrell). I only had 2 cousins in the US at the time so it was a wonderful coincidence and I have loved having family nearby. Age-wise, I am halfway between my cousin, Darrell and his wife Marylou, and their kids Shawn & Michelle, so I am close to all of them and I am eternally grateful to have them living so close to me.  Holly was born and raised in Houston and we couldn’t be more thrilled that she has married into our small Canadian-Texan family.

So, enough about me and my family here, on to Holly and Shawn’s sunny, rustic wedding at Hollow Hill Farm!

Bri & Jonathan’s ceremony at Marty Leonard Chapel was stunning, as all ceremonies there are, and it was followed by an equally unique reception at the Fort Worth Museum of Science and History. The theme was cherry blossoms, and even though we had to wait until 5 days before the wedding to catch the cherry blossoms for Bri’s bridal session (thanks to an unusually cold winter), we got it done and had a photo on display at her wedding!  After a touching ceremony with a musical serenade, Bri & Jonathan exited through a sabre arch with sailors from the Ft Worth Naval Air Station. The Fort Worth Museum of Science and History was a beautiful backdrop for Bri & Jonathan’s reception and we even had a chance to do a late evening photo shoot with the Paluxysaurus jonesi in the DinoLab.  Could it get much better than that?
